THIS WEEK — Sharon Young & Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Clothing Sale, May 4-6

 As promised, we popped over to the Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale to get our readers an exclusive sneak preview, as well as uncover some special bargains that you won’t want to miss. The sale starts this Thursday and runs for 3 days (May 4-6).

This huge, direct from the designer warehouse clothing sale only opens its doors to the public 4 times a year, and you’ll find almost everything marked down 50% to 75% OFF retail.  There are sizes to fit just about anyone —  from Petite to Women’s sizes and everything in between.

Here’s a little taste of some of our favorite finds:

:: You’ll find 1000s of fantastic tops, dresses, pants, jeans, and other key wardrobe elements at great prices, like this on-trend casual mesh top (above) that comes in several fun colors — perfect to give your wardrobe a bright pop of color. It’s also made in white if you need a “go with everything” top to carry you through the summer.

:: Be sure to check out our favorite casual lines from Ali Miles and Tru Luxe  — we found a GREAT selection of jeans and tops!  Pssst… Tru Luxe jeans and pants normally sale for at least $99 when you buy them at the department store, but they are ALL $40 at this sale!  We also found many of the same Ali Miles tops offered online for full price at a major department store (Hot tip: Google “Ali Miles” and compare prices!).


:: SECRET SAUCE INSIDERS’ TIPThe sale will feature a special Buy One Get One FREE” deal on Thursday and Friday (only)! This offer is on top of the already discounted prices, so be sure to ask about this deal to stretch your savings and wardrobe.


:: Isn’t this Ali Miles sleeveless top with hand-beaded collar gorgeous and perfect for summer? It is one of our favorite bargains, at only $20! It sells in department stores for $79 and is a perfect summer staple since it can be dressed up with straight leg pants or worn casually with your favorite jeans (click on the picture above to see a closeup).

Sharon Young Warehouse Sale 2017

:: We are in love with the rich fabrics and careful attention to quality we found throughout the John Mark and Sharon Young collections —  you’ll see incredible bargains with most of these collections at least 60-70% off retail! These two lines are definitely a “Best Buy” at this sale — we found many of these same styles being sold at full price ($99 and up!), right now at a major department store. 

:: Don’t miss the silky soft fabrics in the new weekend leisure and  athletic lines from brands Sport Haley and Bette & Court — ideal for a day on the tennis court or just a walk around the neighborhood. We found rows of tops, shorts, pants, and more made with great looking performance fabrics ~ some even incorporate a UPF 30 sunblock protection.

If you have ever shopped the Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale,  you have most likely met Kathy Rayford, the lovely and kind treasure who often runs the sale’s cash register area. What you may not know is that Kathy’s 14-year old grandson Kyle is on a waiting list for a liver transplant ~ regretfully, he has been diagnosed with an incurable liver disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC) which has many progressive complications including liver failure (learn more about PSC here).  

We are so happy to let you know that a portion of the May sales will go towards helping Kyle’s family defray the thousands of dollars in upcoming medical bills for his transplant procedure! Thank you so much for blessing their family and for your care and support.
