Feeling like you could use some uplifting news this week? Then get ready, because theOutnet is hosting a blowout Christian Louboutin sale starting Tuesday, March 23, before noon ET.

Fans of Christian Louboutin will not be disappointed by the selection -- theOutnet, from the fashion gurus behind Net-A-Porter, promises over 100 styles of the red-soled shoes with discounts of up to 65% off.

The drool-worthy sale is just another smart move Christian Louboutin has made recently.

Besides inspiring a Jennifer Lopez song (who can forget her notorious catsuit-clad performance of "Louboutins" on New Year's Eve?), the shoe designer teamed up with young label Ruffian for Fall 2010 and provided just the right bit of boost for models at J. Mendel's pre-Fall 2010 presentation.

Thankfully, theOutnet's sale selection isn't bottom-of-the-bin. Christian Louboutin's classic "So Private 140" peep-toe platform sling backs have been marked down from $895 to a more wallet-friendly $313.25.

For more glitz, the "Paquita 120" satin gladiator heels in gold (above) will go for $348.25 instead of their usual hefty $995.

With these seriously slashed prices, footwear fanatics will surely rush to be the first ones on theOutnet. So arm yourself with your mouse and be ready to click!
