The Alexandria Sidewalk Sale is back for the seventh year, bringing together over 50 local boutiques for a weekend of deals and discounts. The sale serves as a time when shops clear out their summer stock with products up to 80 percent off, so it’s also a great time to fill your closet at a steep discount for next spring.

The participating shops include multiple women’s boutiques, home goods and antique stores, and consignment retailers offering discounts off their already-discounted merchandise. Deals for the weekend include: up to 75 percent off shoes and accessories at Bishop Boutique, which carries brands such as LK Bennett, Trina Turk, Loeffler Randall, and Joie; 50 percent off Bloomers sale stock, which includes pieces by Cosabella, Eberjay, and Spanx; 25 to 75 percent off vintage barware, including glasses and cocktail tools, at The Hour; 50 percent off Curated’s summer stock, such as accessories, dresses, and home goods like cocktail mixers; and 40 to 60 percent off women’s apparel and accessories by the likes of Trina Turk, Ted Baker, and Nanette Lepore at Duchess M.

The sale is slated to run all day Saturday, August 13, and Sunday, August, 14 at boutiques in Old Town Alexandria and Del Ray. Making it easier on drivers, meters in Alexandria and Del Ray will be free for the weekend, while metro commuters can hop on the King Street Trolley, which will begin running at 9 AM on Saturday. For shoppers who attend the sale and snag some deals, they can show off their haul on Instagram using the hashtag #SidewalkSaleALX for a chance to win 10 gift cards to area stores and a night’s accommodations in Alexandria.
