What’s more stylish than finding a great deal? Mark your calendar and get ready to find your dream dress at Warren Barrón‘s legendary sample sale this Sunday, March 5, from noon to 3 p.m. Find designers like Monique Lhuillier, Vera Wang, Elizabeth Fillmore, Carolina Herrera, and Austin Scarlett marked down at up to 90 percent off retail price.
But what is a sample sale? When stores are ready to make room for new inventory, they sell the samples that have been hanging on racks at the store. You won’t be able to order the gown custom, so you must purchase “as is.” And you must be ready to purchase that day. Once the gown is gone, it’s gone. The sizes typically run at an eight or ten, but don’t fret if that’s not your size. We’ve purchased a sample gown or two and the right alterations expert can make it as custom as you’d like.
A bonus at this year’s sample sale is a chance to win a dinner for 50 in Sonny Bryan’s private room (excludes alcohol). Host a wedding welcome party or rehearsal dinner with a taste of Texas.
