District Sample Sale Tickets on Sale Thursday

The shopping event of the fall is back. Get your tickets!

Heads up, shoppers: It's time to start seriously thinking about your fall wardrobe, because the District Sample Sale is back and taking place on Wednesday, September 12. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, August 23 at 10 AM. $40 buys a general admission ticket before the event (you'll need to show up to get in the line early); $55 gets you in the evening of the event; and $100 secures you a VIP pass that lets you and 99 other shoppers into the sale an hour early—plus you get a couture goodie bag and limited-edition tee. Tickets will be available for purchase at this link.

Not sure what the District Sample Sale is? Essentially, it's one big old free-for-all shopping event. Boutiques and designers set up booths in a big warehouse space, offering insane deals on everything from shoes to coats to lovely dresses and jewelry. Bonus: There's plenty of food, drinks, and proceeds go to the charity Miriam's House.

You can ready yourself by reading our report (with loads of photos) from the spring District Sample Sale, and our handy tips on how to best maximize the experience. Then it'll be ready, set, shop!
