Plume Elan Gm and Paris..........


Resistance is Futile
Apr 8, 2006
So, next year (and I'm not quite sure exactly when yet) is my first trip to Paris to celebrate a milestone birthday and while I am over the moon with excitement just about that alone :yahoo: my DH has informed me that he'd like to buy my birthday gift at Hermes while we're there. And so, I am over the moon about that too!!!!! (even more so because he'd rather have teeth pulled in a third world country than step one foot inside an Hermes store.....)

I've decided that the gift I'd like from him is the Plume Elan GM.....the color/leather will be chosen when I'm there from which ever bag I faint over.

My question difficult do you think it would be to find a selection of Plume Elan GM's at the 24 Faubourg store (I don't think I can get him to travel the city in search of Plume Elan GM's so I have to choose one store only).

What do you guys think?

I think this is fabulous news, ShopMom.... Your DH's gift and your trip and your Birthday:yahoo: Yaaaaaaaaaaa!

As for the Plume, I've tried them but have not adopted any....yet....hoping others can help you there.

D., on my last trip to Paris earlier this year I saw quite a lot of Plume Elans! You shouldn't have too much of a problem! There's also the George V and Hilton stores!! If they don't have what you want at the mothership, perhaps you can have the SA call the other 2 stores! Good luck!

Shopmom, great news!! It will be a very magical birthday :smile:

It will be soooo easy to score plume elan in FSH.. but i would say if u go there u should try to get something that its very hard to get in the US.. like a specific combination in a kelly or birkin.. goodluck :smile:
Shopmom, they have so many bags there at Mothership, there's no way you would have a problem finding something you like.

You mean my husband is not the only one that refuses to set foot inside an Hermes store. :rolleyes: Ok, ok, he will go in but only for no more than 5 mins, then he is out of there!!! :wtf: It was a miracle that he took me to the George V store and stayed with me at the Faubourg store for entire half an hour. Hmmm, maybe we were really late for the flight home had something to do with it... ;) Thank God he has no problem shopping with me in general but just to Hermes!!:hysteric:

Good luck in finding your Plume, I am sure you will have a blast there!!! :yes:Let me know if there are any tips in training your DH but I don't suppose mine would change after 18 years....... :rolleyes:

HEY SHOPMOM!! Like what the ladies said earlier, when I was at FSH about a month ago, Plumes were plenty abundant and in lots of colors and leathers. That would've been my backup bag if I hadn't scored my precious birkin. Like pinkish_love said, I would perhaps try to score a bag that is harder to come by in the US at FSH but then use the plume as a backup bag if you don't find anything! Lucky you to go to Paris for ur BDAY!!! I'm getting nostalgic again....
