3-Day Sharon Young and Ladies Designer Brand Clothing Warehouse Sale — Opens to the Public On Thursday

As promised, we hopped over to Dallas to bring you an exclusive preview of the Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale. The sale opens its doors for just 3 days to the public, and it starts this Thursday (runs April 28-30). We had so much fun on our preview trip and found so many goodies that it was hard to choose!

Just for our readers, we have put together a little peek at some our favorite finds, plus some insiders’ tips & scoop you’ll want to know before you go to the sale…

Ali Miles Sleevless

The Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale only opens its doors four times a year, and this long-awaited 3-day Spring fashion sale starts this Thursday!  This sale is huge with over 22,000 items, like the beautiful, silky Ali Miles sleeveless top pictured above — over 70% OFF retail at only $20! We happened to see this exact top on display at a major department store last weekend for $69 — we cannot say where, but a little Google search for “Ali Miles” might tell you, wink-wink :).

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


INSIDERS’ TIP: The 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.


Here is a little taste of some of our favorite finds:

Sharon Young & Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Sale 2016-- Rows of Bargains

~ Click on any picture for a closeup view ~  

You’ll find everything you need to complete an outfit including tops, skirts, pants, and jackets ~ all $20 to $60. And, even though the sale is huge, everything is very organized into collections, making it easy to navigate the sale. Brands you’ll see include the new high-end boutique John Mark line (most John Mark pieces are at least 60% off!), Sharon Young, Multiples, Tru Luxe jeans and tops, Ali Miles, Slim-Sations, A La Carte & more.

The sale covers a huge selection and variety of styles, from trendy to traditional and from “running to the grocery store” casual to night-on-the-town dressy.  Plus, we found a nice variety of sizes to fit and flatter  just about anyone ~ from petite to women’s plus sizes and everything in between (sizes 2-18 and a stylish selection of 0X-3X).
