Need a Monday pick-me-up? Picture this: 25-plus boutiques offering up to 90% off designer duds in one room — and part of every dollar dropped goes to charity. Nope, this isn’t heaven (well, maybe) — it’s the return of the District Sample Sale. Come September 24, you can score epic end-of-season discounts and get a head start on shopping fall wares from Ginger, Sassanova, Hysteria, Zoe Boutique, Wink, and a bounty of other stylish local boutiques in one stop. As in past years, this time around includes delicious bites and beverages from local eateries, a silent auction, and a raffle; with VIP tickets, you can take advantage of early access and goodie bags. So, grab your girls (you’re going to need backup), and do some serious good for your wardrobe and your conscience. (This year’s charitable cause, N Street Village, provides women-focused services for D.C.’s homeless and low-income women.) Swoop up tickets here starting tomorrow, August 6, at 10 a.m.
When: Tuesday, September 24, from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
Where: The Sphinx Club, 1315 K Street NW; no phone. Email for more information.
