Score Some Bright Basics At A Discount At Periwinkle's Summer Sale

periwinkle_slide
Now that July is more than half over, it seems a little counterintuitive to splurge on summer duds — after all, the recent heat wave has made us more than a little excited about boots, coats, and sweaters. But the reality is, it'll still be steamy in Washington for another month or so, and if you're bored with your hot-weather wardrobe already, scooping a few choice pieces at a major discount should see you through the worst of the suffocating humidity.
Periwinkle's three area locations are giving you just that opportunity with a 40%-off summer sale that starts today. Pick up a few breezy tunics, a bold printed wrap dress, or some stunning statement gems to freshen up your end-of-summer uniform. Bonus points (and our eternal admiration) if you grab a piece or two that you can wear into the fall.
When: Sale starts today. Store hours Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
Where: Potomac Greens, 1557 Potomac Greens Drive, Alexandria, 703-519-5242; Shirlington Village, 4150 Campbell Avenue, Arlington, 703-379-5242; National Harbor, 160 American Way, National Harbor, 301-567-5242.
