3-Day Sharon Young and Ladies Designer Brand Clothing Warehouse Sale — Starts Thursday

A couple of weeks ago, we promised to pop over to Dallas to get you an exclusive preview of the Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale that opens its doors on Thursday (runs July 30-August 1). There’s not enough room to tell you about all the goodies we found, so we will give you a taste of some our favorites, plus share the inside scoop you’ve been waiting for…

Yellow Tunic Sharon Young

Our “readers’ favorite” fashion sale only opens its doors four times a year, and this long-awaited 3-day summer sale starts this week (July 30-Aug. 1)! This sale is huge with over 19,000 pieces starting at $20 with sizes to fit just about anyone ~ from petite to women’s plus sizes and everything in between (sizes 2-18 and a stylish selection of 0X-3X).

Once again, we saved a bundle (50 to 75% off regular retail) and went home with some gorgeous clothes usually only found at higher end ladies boutiques and department stores at higher prices. The racks were already packed, and even more beautiful pieces were coming into the warehouse during our visit!

Here are a few pictures of our finds:
