The 14th annual District Sample Sale will bring together DC’s most fashionable shoppers at Long View Gallery for a night of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres from local eateries, and items from Washington boutiques at some seriously discounted prices. End-of-season styles will sell for up to 90 percent off the ticketed price, and shoppers can preview upcoming collections with exclusive District Sample Sale discounts.
This year’s sale will benefit the DC Diaper Bank, which provides an average of 75,000 clean diapers to low-income families in DC, Maryland, and Virginia every month. Since 2006, the District Sample Sale has donated more than $315,000 to women’s and children’s charities in the area.
Tickets go on sale at 10 tomorrow morning through the District Sample Sale website, including $40 general admission tickets, $100 VIP tickets, $250 Benefactress tickets, and $600 Corporate Benefactress tickets. VIP tickets—which include the product-heavy goodie bag and an extra hour of shopping from 5:30 to 6:30—tend to sell out quickly, so make sure to be online when the tickets go live.
District Sample Sale. March 3, 5:30 to 9 PM, Long View Gallery, 1234 Ninth St., NW.
