Louis Vuitton Earth Day Promotion is not a Sale

There was a lot of talk today on Twitter about Louis Vuitton’s Earth Day promotion.  Some savvy shoppers got very excited, because they thought Louis Vuitton was having a 10% off sale for Earth Day.  I am here to tell you , Louis Vuitton is not having  a sale.  Louis Vuitton will never, ever have a sale. Personally, I believe the word sale is against the retail religion of LV.

To clarify, Lousi Vuitton will be giving 10% of their sales on Earth Day, April 22nd, to Global Green USA.  So I wonder how many LV lovers will get out their credit cards to shop tomorrow?  Imagine how much money they would actually raise to help Mother Earth if they did give a small discount on their bags.

Here’s my LV shopping  “Imagine” sung to the tune of the John Lennon song.

Imagine if Louis Vuitton had a sale
It’s easy of you try
No replicas below us
Above us only discounted real leather
 Imagine all the frugal fashionistas
Carrying Louis Vuitton today!
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope Louis Vuitton will join us
By offering more affordable handbags 
And fashionistas and recessionista will live as one.
This is my LV prayer.  Imagine the energy that would be saved! No endless hours on eBay searching for deals.  No fake websites with silly replicas eating up web space and using energy.  Just imagine that!

    Hmmmmm….the LV ad you posted is very misleading unless you read it carefully. I can totally see how at first glance you'd see the “10%” figure and mistake it for 10% off. Kinda shady of LV, if you ask me!
