WASHINGTON — Designer deals are what everyone who considers themselves a shopper lives by! And you can get some of the best designer deals in the DMV at the 16th annual Alexandria Warehouse Sale, this Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 9 am - 4 pm at the Westin Alexandria.
Elizabeth Todd is the founder of the event and an Alexandria boutique owner herself (The Shoe Hive & The Hive). She says she started the warehouse sale because she needed to get rid of old inventory and thought it was a great way to bring all of the boutiques in the area together under one roof.
The sale starts at 9 am, but Todd warns to get there early because she says some 'diehards' will get there at 6 am.
This year there are some fun activities for everyone who is waiting for the sale to open, like Pilates, a plank competition and yes, there will be coffee.
Here are Todd's top tips to have a successful shopping trip.
- Dress comfortably! leggings are your friend, leave your coat in the car and bring a small purse.
- Bring snacks and water
- Stick to buying basics or a great statement piece
- Leave your modesty at the door
- Be nice
Todd says everything is typically between 50 percent to 80 percent off, and the sale encompasses everything from jewelry, to home decor, to kids and adult clothing.
So don't miss the 16th annual Alexandria Warehouse Sale!
