3 Sales You Don’t Want to Miss This Week

Huge discounts on designer goods, right this way.

Old Town Boutique District Warehouse Sale

Head to the George Washington Masonic Memorial on Saturday for some serious shopping, with discounts and hysteria that’ll rival Black Friday. The tenth annual Old Town Boutique District Warehouse Sale brings together some of the best shops in the neighborhood—Bishop Boutique, Red Barn Mercantile, the Shoe Hive, and more—for a day of 70 to 80 percent off retail prices. The sale kicks off at 9 AM, but if you want the first go at the goods, we recommend lining up a few hours earlier. George Washington Masonic Memorial, 101 Callahan Dr., Old Town. Saturday, February 7, 9 AM to 4 PM.

Shopping Fundraiser for the Children’s Inn of NIH

Sip Champagne and hunt for the perfect pre-worn designer cocktail dress and accessories at Current Boutique’s sale. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go to benefit the Children’s Inn at NIH, and once you’ve got your gown with earrings and a bag to match, you can head to the Annual Winter Affair, which also benefits the Children’s Inn. Current Boutique, 7220 Wisconsin Ave., Bethesda. Thursday, February 5, 6 to 8 PM.

Crystal Couture Show and Sale

Join 40 of Crystal City’s boutiques for a pop-up shopping event and a runway show. Nosh on hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants while scanning the racks of discounted designer clothes, take advantage of a complimentary mini beauty makeover, and chat up the area’s fashion consultants. Admission is free, but a $50 VIP ticket gets you admission an hour earlier on the first day of the sale to snatch up the best deals, as well as access to an open bar throughout the evening. Crystal City Shops, 1750 Crystal Drive, Arlington. February 7 through 9, 6 to 10 PM.
