Beginning Thursday, February 22, preppy Georgetown-based retailer Tuckernuck is bringing its uber-anticipated sample sale back to the DMV, popping up in the Chevy Chase space formerly occupied by Ralph Lauren. The sale will run from Thursday, February 22, through Sunday, February 25.
Discounted men’s and women’s items feature Tuckernuck’s signature all-American vibe (think: Nantucket-esque dresses, sweaters, and tops, with nautical stripes, classic colors, and preppy patterns plus whimsical statement earrings for her, and crisp, nautical-inspired jackets and accessories for him) from brands including Neely & Chloe, Barbour, Shoshanna, Rebecca Taylor, Saint James, Parker, MIH Jean, Current Elliott, 7 for All Mankind, and Loeffler—all for up to 90 percent off. The sale returns to Chevy Chase for the second year, this time at 5471A Wisconsin Avenue, still just a block from the Friendship Heights Metro Stop.
Tuckernuck was founded in 2012 by Jocelyn Gailliot, Madeline Grayson, and September Rinnier, three DC women looking for a shopping experience that integrated online and in-person experiential shopping in the way that many edgier startup brands were, but serving a more classic customer. They found that despite the abundant number of clothing lines geared toward preppy All-American styles, the market lacked a consolidated hub. Taking matters into their own hands, the trio launched an online retailer, eventually bringing a small brick-and-mortar to 1055 Wisconsin Avenue in Georgetown in October of 2016. They called it Tuckernuck, after an island in Nantucket, as an homage to New England’s classic, nautical style and sensibility.
