High heels were invented in ancient Egypt to put several inches between a lady's foot and the pharaoh's abundant fields of sand castles. Tread lightly and stylishly with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of shoes, apparel, and accessories at Pink Pump. Redeem this Groupon at one of four locations in Bloomfield Hills, Birmingham, Royal Oak, and Ann Arbor.
Voted Best Women's Shoe Selection by Real Detroit Weekly 2010 and 2011, Pink Pump outfits feet and adjacent limbs with an eclectic selection of pumps, wedges, flats, boots, and clothing. Steve Madden pumps help underconfident toes to hit their attitude stride ($80–$150), and chilly heels can slip into a pair of Uggs to strut stylishly through piles of powder and groups of gawking snowmen ($100–$350). Designer clothing brands such as Blank Jeans, Queen of Evil, and Kensie line the racks, their trendy threads woven into the form of skirts, tops, jeans, and jackets ($40–$200). Each of the four locations presents a varied inventory and replenishes stock daily with such elusive labels as Lamb, Rock & Republic footwear, and Alexander McQueen.
Bright fuchsia walls and dangly Victorian–style chandeliers pair up with ottomans to cosset guests in a funky, chic embrace, and the helpful staff more figuratively embraces them with friendliness and efficient customer service. For all of 2011, Pink Pump is donating a percentage of every sale of more than $30 to Give Back Entertainment, and the customer receives a CD of Wendy Starland’s single "Garden of Temptation."
