    Louis Vuitton has no discount sales nor does it have any duty-free stores.

    Montaigne Avenue: Just for big wallets

    by cinthya_in_victoria Updated Dec 24, 2008
    Dior behind me

    In this street you will find the designer's shops: Louis Vuitton, Dior, Chanel, D&G, Gucci, etc. etc. Montaigne Av. is not very long but very fancy and chic for sure it is. Of course I didn't buy anything, well in fact I didn't even enter to any store but it was interesting to see how the high society ladies got into their cars with huge shopping bags. I envyed a young lady comming out from Louis Vuitton with four huge shopping bags! I wondered how much money did she spend... ;)

    What to pay: expect to go back home with 0 dollars to your name.

    Louis Vittuion, Champs Elysee: Don't fall into trap of helping others buy LV

    by wanli Written Jun 9, 2007

    Visiting the Louis Vittuion shop along Champs Elysee is a must. The range offered is fantastic and once in the shop, you never feel over-crowding. Why? They only allow a certain number of people into the shop at any one time. So, expect to queue.

    Don't fall into the trap of helping others buy LV though. They'll offer that you claim the VAT when leaving the country. But, you'll need to show the goods to the customs, so, no goods, no claim.

    Louis Vuitton: My friend Louis...

    by Muarrij Updated Mar 22, 2007
    Louis' Flagship shop on Champs

    Some of you probably know my friend Louis.... Vuitton.
    He has a small shop on the corner along the Grand Avenue Champs Elysees in central Paris.

    If you do happen to have enough greens to walk in, beware.... if you touch... you buy. Simple as that and no exceptions.

    Louis happens to be one of the richest business men in France, also owning perfume retail Sephora, brands like Channel and much more!

    What to buy: LV Bags of course ! Just make sure the rest of your attire matches...

    What to pay: Extortionate prices equivalent to a holiday in the sun!

  • Louis Vuitton: Ask the LV man!

    by wildstrawberries Written Sep 1, 2004

    The store has moved, all you LV fans.

    To get to it, locate the man with the LV umbrella in front of this huge LV monogram signboard along Champs Elysee and he'll point you THE WAY to join hordes of Asian tourists buying lots of LVs.

    Louis Vuitton (renovations): I followed the Yellow Brick Road and found OZ !!!

    The Geisha who lived in her Louis!

    As we were leisurely strolling down the Champs Elysees, I felt my pulse rate quicken and goose pimples start to overtake my entire body.

    The sight before me was too amazing for words!!! A GIGANTIC Louis bag!!!

    I had to be held up for fear of fainting in the middle of Le grand boulevard!

    Alas, as we came closer to the site, reality sunk in and I soon realized that it was not the Mother of all handbags.

    It was the artsy "UNDER CONSTRUCTION" store front that was on display.

    Since Nov. 2003, the LV shop on the Champs-Elyees has been closed for renovations. (for about a year!) They temporarily re-located to 38, avenue George V.

    Perhaps I may find my way back to OZ for the grand opening of this shop!

    You should never TEASE a girl with a Louis !!! ;-)

    What to buy: Anything and Everything your bonus allows you to spend!

    What to pay: Beacoup Dinero!
