As far as retail relaxation goes, a stroll through Georgetown on a sunny Saturday afternoon is already pretty close to nirvana. But this weekend, two shops are making our outing even better.
First up, Tari is kicking off an amazing series of sidewalk sales. Think clothing and accessories from favorites like BCBG, J.Crew, ASOS, DKNY, Ralph Lauren, and Brooks Brothers, all for under $20. The best part? The shop is offering up discounted fashion al fresco every Saturday this summer.
Every Saturday, June 29 through August 24, from 1 to 6 p.m. Tari, 1525 Wisconsin Avenue NW; 202-621-7500.
Also on Saturday, Sassanova kicks off its "semi-annual insane summer sale," which means all shoes will be marked down by 40%. But wait, it gets better: Buy two pairs, and the second pair is 50% off; buy three pairs, and the third pair is 60% off. (And the biggest discount is applied to the most expensive kicks you choose — how awesome is that?) The boutique's collection of clothing will be marked down by as much as 40% too, so there's no excuse not to head there first thing tomorrow morning. But if you can't make it, don’t fret: After tomorrow, all sale shoes will still be 40% off, so even latecomers can get their summer shoe fix.
Saturday, June 29, at 9 a.m. Sassanova, 1641 Wisconsin Avenue NW, 202-471-4400; 7134 Bethesda Lane, Bethesda, 301-654-7403; 805 Aliceanna Street, Baltimore, 410-244-1114.
