Just go ahead and set your alarm now: At 10 tomorrow morning, tickets for this year’s District Sample Sale, a.k.a. the Best Shopping Event Ever, officially go on sale. Believe us when we say you’ll want to snag tickets: This annual charity event—now in its sixth year—brings in hundreds of stylish shoppers for a no-holds-barred shopping extravaganza that boasts major end-of-season markdowns (up to 90 percent!) and deals on new fall fashion from 27 local boutiques (and counting), including Muleh, Wink, Charm, Zoe, and Sassanova. As usual, the night also features a silent auction and raffle giveaways for luxe prizes, and cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from a selection of delish restaurants, plus a fully loaded goodie bag for VIP ticket holders. But it’s not just about fab fashion and major shopping deals: This event donates all profits to a selected charity. This year, proceeds benefit the Bethany Women’s Center at N Street Village.
Snag your tickets online tomorrow at 10 AM. (And be quick if you want the VIP level—which includes early access and that fashion-packed swag bag—as tickets are limited and usually sell out within a few hours.)
General admission $40; VIP admission $100; benefactress tickets, $250 to $600. September 24, 5:30 to 9 PM. Sphinx Club, 1315 K St., NW.
