For the past ten years, Old Town Boutique District shops have come together for a giant warehouse sale, and this year is no exception. This weekend, however, the sale is expanding its footprint at The Westin Alexandria for its biggest sale to date, featuring both Alexandria boutiques and stores from the DC region.
The sale will bring together over 20 vendors offering deep discounts–up to 80 percent–off their merchandise. Attendees will be able to shop a wide variety of fashion goods from participating stores, including stylish shoes and accessories from Bishop Boutique, preppy jewelry from Fornash, locally-designed workwear from Kiki Lynn, delicate and trendy jewelry from She’s Unique, chic women’s apparel from Betsy Fisher, and fine jewelry from Mystique, and workout wear from Lululemon, among others.
The doors open at 9 AM, but since the sale typically sees about 1,000 shoppers throughout the day, admission is controlled at the entrance, so a limited number of customers are able to enter the sale at a time. Shoppers typically begin lining up an hour before the doors open, but the organizers are giving away early entry to four shoppers who will be able to beat the queue. Interested attendees can enter the lottery on the warehouse sale’s Facebook page for a chance to win early entry into the sale at 8 AM.
Entrance to the sale is free, and the event will run 9 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, February 6 at the The Westin Alexandria, 400 Courthouse Square, Alexandria. Parking for $5 is available at Colonial Parking next to the Westin at 2050 Ballenger Avenue and 1925 Ballenger Avenue.
