Couture, Charity, and Cocktails

January 27, 2008


The District Sample Sale is back and better than ever. This year’s event will be held at the Galleria at Lafayette Square on Tuesday, March 4, 2008 from 6:30pm to 9:30pm with a preview VIP sale from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. This event should be on every glam girl’s agenda.

Join fashionistas for an evening of great sales from some of the best clothing and jewelry boutiques the DC area has to offer. The DSS last fall was a huge hit; tickets sold out the day they went on sale. And why not? You get to score lots of loot at almost liquidation prices. Score jewelry from Queen Bee Designs and Sissy Yates or peruse the myriad of boutiques like Wink, Sugar and Sherman Pickney. I am defiantly looking forward to picking up some shoes from Sassanova.

Local boutiques in Goergetown, downtown DC, Arlington and Vienna will be offering great bargains, up to 80% off.Participating stores in last year’s DSS were:
Alex Boutique,Caramel, Daisy Too, Hysteria, Lettie Gooch, Maggie and Lola, Muléh, My Sister’s Closet, Periwinkle, Proper Topper, Queen Bee Designs, Redeem, Sassanova, Sherman Pickey, Simply Soles, Sissy Yates, Sugar, The Purse Store, The Shoe Hive, Urban Chic, Wink/Blush, Zelaya Shoes

Proceeds from this year’s event will go to Martha’s Table Summer Camp, an organization that provides a safe place for the less fortunate children between the ages of 8-15 in the Washington, DC community during the summer.

Tickets will be available online Thursday, February 7th at 10am. Do not wait because this sells out FAST. There are three levels of tickets for you glam girls:
