Last year, I attended Macy’s Bridal Salon Sample Sale in Minneapolis and I was NOT disappointed. After sitting in line for about a hour, I entered the room full of dresses — I imagine there were at least 1,500 dresses — ranging from $200 to over $7,000 (prices were after discounts). I was pleasantly surprised to discover that there wasn’ as much catty behavior as I’d expected, and most women were fairly calm.
Anyway, I walked away from the sale with a lovely ivory Vera Wang gown (that I’m not able to wear) and a few dress options for my mother (bridesmaid and MOB dresses were SO cheap — I think they were 2 for $50).
Anyway, my sources are suggesting to me that the next Macy’s Bridal Salon Sample Sale is going to take place… on April 21, 2009 – from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. This takes place at the downtown Minneapolis Macy’s. I’d recommend getting in line at/around 8 with your coffee and a few friends or family members. Oh – and wear your shapewear or at least a strapless bra, and be prepared to strip down in front of strangers.
