I get excited these days when I actually get to go to Target. Right now, the grocery store requires a sitter or call to Josh. Good thing our sitter is back from vacation next week, because it's the Junior League of Washington's Shop Around!
I literally had NO IDEA how good it was until one of the ladies planning it came to present to my council meeting last week. Deals these good are far too good not to pass along. So I wanted to share with all my friends in the area who may not have already heard about it. I never paid that much attention in the past because I'm silly - really - this is WOW AMAZING!
Tickets are $25.
* I don't get any rewards for selling tickets, other than the knowledge that the funds go directly to help the charities I work with.
Highlights (to me anyway) include a gift card for a free appetizer at PF Changs (ahh - Ahi Tuna, I'm still recovering from 10 months with no sushi), not limited to the week of the sale.
Kate Spade...no need for explanation
20% off at two local lilly stores - that's right a discount on in season Lilly. I'm still not back to fitting in that short of a hemline, but that's what the discount to the Bar Method and accessories are for, right?
We've been putting off a trip to Brooks Brothers for some new suits for Josh, but with 20% off, I know what we'll be doing one day next week.
I have some gift cards to Dawn Price Baby which will go a lot further with 20% off.
I've also been wanting to try rent the runway and with 15% off orders placed before the 28th, I think I'll be sporting some neat outfits to some upcoming events. The clothing can be "rented" for dates in the future, the online transaction just needs to occur before the 28th.
Who knows, maybe I'll try the members only pass to George, I'm fairly certain I can't guarantee I won't have spitup on some part of my outfit, which is probably not part of the dress code, he he.
There are lots of neat events that go along with the shop around, of course I am attending the gala for the organization I chair the committee for at the exact same time as the kick off party, but maybe I can figure out a way to squeeze it all in...
Tickets can be purchased here and a list of all the retailers participating are below. Hope this is helpful to some of y'all! Have fun shopping!!
PS - Today is the last day to purchase tickets, wish I had given y'all more advanced notice, time flies when you're a new mom!
