Bargain-Basement Bling, Just In Time For Proposal Season

setting_template_profile-2slide
As sad as we are to see Filene's Basement, one of our fave discount-designer meccas, go under, the one upside to the whole going-out-of-business thing is the mark-down of going-out-of-business prices. And with that in mind, we've got insider info for anyone hoping to gift their significant other with something sparkly over the holidays (or just slip a subtle hint): Filene's Basement locations have discounted engagement rings by as much as 70%, which means you can snag an enviable rock for your sweetie without stiffing everyone else on the list.
No wedding bells in the immediate future? Who cares! All of Filene’s is on sale, so you can still treat yourself to those can't-live-without-'em bargains, from so-cozy Missoni sweaters to wild and wonderful Pierre Hardy pumps. After all, nothing combats those pesky (potentially upcoming) holiday blues like retail therapy.
Where: Filene's Basement, 1133 Connecticut Avenue NW; 202-872-8430; 529 14th Street NW; 202-638-4110; 5300 Wisconsin Avenue NW; 202-966-0208.
