Hi everyone,


I have a friend who is traveling soon to Cannes France. She swears there is an LV outlet there. I've never heard anyone talk on the forum about LV outlets. Can someone shed some light for me? THANKS!

I don't think LV has outlets...
Your friend is either thinking of another brand, or the "outlets" are places selling fakes/knock-offs!

Thanks so much. This particular friend has a tendency to "stretch the truth" so I am sure she is covering herself when she returns with her fake LV bags. :yucky: Thanks again!

I know there was a thread started about this not too long ago, and I think the conclusion was that there are NO LV outlets -ANYWHERE in the world....someone even went on as far as mentioning that if purses are sold after a period of time, they burn them - arh? Yea, that's what I heard - why, I think it's absurd!!!

Yup, they do but not before they're given ample time to sell by being transferred from store to store, being offered to the SAs for 80% off, etc. But think of it this way..LV has never really OVERproduced anything (look at all the demand for different collections), only underproduced, so in the end the burning is the absolute last resort and rarely, if ever, happens.

One would think that the people here would know about it. :smile: Maybe the most tactful thing would be to tell your friend that we are all interested in it here, and would be very grateful if she would pass along the address of the outlet, and any other relevant information. :yes: Let's see what she's got. :smile:
