Our Favorite Thing About Summer? Sidewalk Sales Galore!

If you're craving a new outfit but don't want to break the bank, the end of summer is basically your month-long moment of zen. Why? Because most of our favorite local shops offer mega discounts in order to move end-of-season merchandise, which means you can scoop gorg pieces for a song. So, mark your calendar for this Saturday's annual Old Town Alexandria Sidewalk Sale, where irresistible deals include 50-80% off at The Shoe Hive, Diva Designer Consignment, and Periwinkle, just to name a few.
As many as 60 shops and restaurants lining Old Town's boutique district will be offering promotions in the form of discounts, demos, major sales, and fun events. Whether you're looking to scoop up a new pair of shoes, score some awesome jewelry, or just sip on free lemonade while exploring for inspiration, we can't see how you could say no to this weekend win.
When: Saturday, August 11; hours vary by retailer.
