Today is the beginning of the fabulous Divine by Design sale in Beverly Hills, CA. The sale benefits a cause that is near & dear to my heart: Project Angel Food. Project Angel Food is a free meal-delivery program that serves men, women and children debilitated by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses throughout Los Angeles County. The program literally brings nourishment to the needy. And this week, it will bring retail nourishment to holiday
shoppers looking for a bargain. Over 200 designers contributed to this year’s sale. Featured designers @ Divine Design include: BCBG, LAMB, Ports 1961, Trina Turk and many more. The sale features men’s clothing (Ted Baker), children’s clothes & toys, plus designer brands favored by Recessionistas everywhere.
There’s also a nice selection of Barbie stuff and kids’ toys. I shopped the sale last year and got some nice gifts for my holiday girlfriend gift packets (stocking stuffers), clothes for work and trinkets for my niece & nephew. I treasure my Trina Turk cashmere sweater
that I got at last year’s sale. I snagged if for well under $100.00.
If you are interested in attending, here are a few things Recessionistas need to know:
1 ) You need to purchase a ticket to attend the sale at the door. However, there is a coupon available here offering a $10.00 discount on the ticket. And the price of the ticket is deductible as it benefits Project Angel Food.
2) Prices on all the goods will decrease as the sale goes on. Yes, each day the price will drop. So, the lowest prices will be on Dec. 8th, the last day of the sale. However, you might not want to wait until the very last day. I usually do wait until after the opening day to make my purchases, so that the prices will be lower.
Although the opening event is tonight, I understand the sale is open to the general public starting Dec. 5th at 11:00 am pst. It will be held in the old Robinson-May store adjacent to the Beverly Hilton Hotel. For directions, click here.
