Nashville Scene Fashion for a Fraction: August 23

The Nashville Scene's Fashion for a Fraction is one of my favorite events of the year. Join me this Saturday, August 23 at McQuiddy Gymnasium at Lipscomb University and let's see what great deals we can find. Some of Nashville's best boutiques are all under one roof selling their spring/summer sale merchandise at a minimum of 50% off. It's not uncommon to find designer gear here for 75-80% off. Seriously, this is the best sale of the year. New this year is the VIP ticket which gets you into the sale one hour early so you get first pick on all the goods. It's worth the $10 to get there first. Trust me. Regular admission is $5 and proceeds from the event benefit the Nashville Fashion Forward of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. If you have a VIP ticket, you can start shopping at 11am. If you opt for the general admission ticket, shopping (and saving) starts at 12pm. Fashion for a Fraction Aug

Nashville Scene Fashion for a Fraction - I love this event. It is definitely one of the best sales of the season. Ticket sales launched on Thursday and I already know I'll find great deals at e. Allen, The French Shoppe, Smack, d. marlene jewelry and many more. Something new this year is the VIP ticket. Purchase a $10 ticket and receive early admission to the sale.

Nashville Scene & Nfocus Magazine Fashion for a Fraction - Saturday is the day for deals...sweet, sweet deals. I got a sneak peek of some of the items that will be at the sale on Saturday and trust me when I tell you this is going to be a whopper of a sale. We did a Talk of the Town segment today and I can't believe some of the items we had. The vintage selection from Closet Case Vintage and Star Struck Vintage is going to be killer. We're talking Ferragamo boots, Yves St. Laurent shoes, Bob Mackey blouses, Tiffany & Co scarves, Gucci bags, vintage dead stock sunglasses, vintage furs, and so...much...more all at somewhere between 30%-60% off. At Gus Mayer, everything will be marked down an additional 50% off the current sale price. This will make a good chunk of Gus Mayer's items under $100. We showed a gorgeous blouse on Talk of the the Town this morning that retails for $455. It will be marked down to around $50 on Saturday. And that's not the only item in the $50-$75 price range. This will be a booth to hit early to get the best selection. E. Allen will have tons of shoes, denim, dresses and more for $50. Smack will feature a whole rack of dresses for $20 each. Fringe & Lace will have tons of items under $50. One of my favorite jewelry designers, d. marlene jewelry, will have her handmade pieces for 40% off. The Trunk will have tons of deals on men's and women's apparel and so will J. McLaughlin. You get the picture. You need to be at McQuiddy Gymnasium at Lipscomb University from 11am-4pm. Tickets are only $5 and you can purchase them HERE or at the door. Proceeds from the event will benefit Hands on Nashville.
