Summer Sales Not to Miss

Part of the extensive sale area at Wardrobe Richmond.

I guess we’ve officially hit that time of year when retailers are making room for Fall merchandise. It seems like everywhere I look there’s an awesome sale taking place. Here’s my round-up for shopping you don’t want to miss, both locally and online.

Sales in Richmond, Va.

This Saturday marks the annual Libbie/Grove/Patterson shopping area’s annual sidewalk sale with most shops opening at 9 a.m. This has always been one of my favorite events for scoring deep discounts on designer clothes. What’s different this year, though, is many shops are starting their sales early. Here’s the scoop I’ve gotten so far.

Wardrobe Richmond’s sale actually started last week with about half the store marked half off and a 75 percent off rack in the back. I took a swing through last Saturday and scored a new dress and three super cute, work-appropriate tops. There was a lot on sale, so I’d definitely still stop in and take a look.

The Shops at 5807 is hosting early bird sale deals starting today and leading up through Saturday when the biggest discounts will be available.

Collared Greens’ summer sale started yesterday and continues through August 6 with everything in the store marked down and up to 70 percent off some items.

Fraiche is participating in the sidewalk sale, but a little birdie told me the shop will also be having pre-sale items in-store on Thursday and Friday so stop in early to see the deals.

In other parts of town, Tweed is offering 30 percent off an array of clothing and accessories.

Online Sales

The shop may be local, but the sale is online—Need Supply Co. has up to 80 percent off summer styles for women and men online only. The selection includes a variety of nice basics that should be able to be mixed and matched for seasons to come, so it’s worth checking out.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially started last week with discounts across categories. I don’t know why, but I almost always end up grabbing a pair of shoes on this sale—it’s a great time to get a pair of boots for Fall at a nice discount.

Revolve, one of my top favorite sites for adorable dresses, is hosting a summer sale with tons of women’s clothing up to half off. There are plenty of pieces that can transition from this season to next, so take a look.

Frye is also hosting a huge summer sale. Unfortunately, the boots I’m coveting are marked down to around $400 from $700, but there are plenty of sandals, high boots, booties and more to browse.

Athleta’s semi-annual sale is also still going strong with up to 60 percent of workout wear, swimwear, sundresses, and more in-store and online. My strategy for this sale is generally to check out the selection of black workout pants and freshen my workout wardrobe while I can save some money.



  1. This is a solid list of sales! I am excited to get out and get my shop on this weekend. Thanks for sharing these, I need some new places to hit and a sale sweetens the deal for sure.

  2. My wallet isn’t happy to find this post but I’m excited! 😉 Thanks for sharing all of the in-store and online sales!

Thanks for reading! Share your thoughts.
