The countdown for the biggest sale of the year has begun. Only a few days from now, a long list of merchants will be taking their goods to the Westin in Alexandria for the 15th Annual Alexandria Boutique Warehouse Sale.
I know shopping the sale rack can get frustrating; the sizes can be picked over and you can pull something from a rack and fall in love, only to look at the size and know no seamstress known to man could alter it to make it work for you. I decided to put together a few looks below to show folks that yes, there are still plenty of great options available. Don’t forget, there are tons of purses and jewelry to be found and those always fit.
As merchants, we don’t want folks to leave frustrated. We have tried to make the entire day as enjoyable an experience as possible. We control access to the sale so there’s room to shop. While you wait, we know the line can get boring so we have a list of activities going on to make the time pass more quickly:
Mind the Mat will have a Pilates and yoga class. Pilates Pro Works will be holding a plank competition every 30 minutes. AR Workshop will be there with a mini craft station, Salon deZEN has a braid bar, and then we have beverages! The Patterson Group will have a free coffee station in the morning and then we have Truly Sparkling being passed out all day, in case you need a little cocktail break.
