 History - The Lápis Vermelho Sale was held for the first time in 1982 in BH Shopping (MG), RibeirãoShopping, in Ribeirão Preto (SP) and BarraShopping (RJ) - Multiplan's first malls. The campaign was created by the now-defunct Estrutural agency run by advertising executives Rogério Steinberg and Armando Strozenberg. Multiplan's George Blum developed the idea for the "Red Pencil" character, a cartoon doll shaped like a coloring crayon. This image was used throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. In 2008, the Sale was run for the first time simultaneously in all the company's malls, featuring two annual editions: summer and winter.  Currently, the Red Pencil also symbolizes promotions in the stores year-round.
