With so many wonderful stores located in New Orleans, it can be hard to shop them all. Instead of missing out on styles and products carried on the other side of town, ALG Style is making it possible to browse more than 20 boutiques in one sitting. Their 8th annual Warehouse Sale takes place Sunday, August 25th at The Cannery.
Inspired by Barneys' iconic warehouse sales, ALG Style, an image consulting and styling firm, decided to offer something similar to promote local retailers. What started as a pop-up shop at Oak Wine Bar has grown upward and onward into a successful biannual event. Now, more than 800 people attend the mega sale.
Aimée Gowland and Joe Luft of ALG Style said that the event is the perfect way to present vendors to a client base that they might not have normally have had the privy to be introduced to. "It's great camaraderie and fun to see people come back year after year," the team told Adore.
Vendors include boutiques like Wildflower, Sorellas, Oak & Blossom, and Monomin, and brands such as Hola Guava and Kendra Scott. Discounts start at 30% and go up to 90% off. Spring and summer inventory make up most of the sale as stores are clearing their shelves for new items, but many retailers also bring along fall merchandise.
With food and coffee trucks on site, free parking, and prizes to be won, it's an event New Orleanians won't want to miss. Entrance to the sale is completely open to the public, but tickets are available to purchase to access the sale early during the VIP hour. Between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., serious shoppers can enjoy the sale sans crowd while sipping on complimentary champagne and walking away with a swag bag.
The Warehouse Sale is Sunday, August 25th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Cannery in Mid-City (3803 Toulouse Street, 70119). VIP tickets can be purchased here.
