15 of Charlotte’s best-dressed women have cleaned out their wardrobes, and are hosting a huge “pre-loved” designer clothing sale in Myers Park called the EDIT this Tuesday through Thursday.
From Ulla Johnson to Valentino, these Capitol- and Poole Shop-loving ladies (who didn’t want to be named) will be selling more than 600 pieces combined.
“We’re just people who love fashion. We kind of move on at the end of each season,” one of the event’s three founders told me. “But what we’re selling, it’s stuff that’s still beautiful. We want to pass it on to other people who love fashion. … We all end up buying stuff at the show, too.”
Most pieces have only been worn a handful of times and are three years old or newer. You won’t find anything with major wear or defects — it’s all clothing that’s in style and in great condition.
“We have people asking for this sale,” one woman told me. “Once we started it, people have loved it.”
History: Three women with seriously killer closets started the EDIT sale last spring, because they wanted to make room in their closets for new pieces. They also knew the “pre-loved” clothing they were ready to depart with was still stylish and could be worn by someone else. The sale started by word of mouth, and this will be the fourth time they’ve done it. People literally line up for it, one of the women said.
Location and hours: The sale is in the guest house (around back) of 1711 Brandon Road in Myers Park. They’re open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.
Inventory: They have tons of skirts, dresses, cover-ups, beach hats, sandals, heels, flats, bags and more. You’ll be able to find anything from cotton day dresses to formal dresses fit for all the big spring events coming up.
Designers/brands: Ulla Johnson, Valentino, Gucci, Chloe, Isabel Marant, Marc Jacobs, Dries Van Noten, Balenciaga, Sea NY, Kule, Temperley and more.
Sizes: 2-10 clothing size, 7.5-10 shoe size
Discounts/Prices: One of the event’s founders told me they marked one $2,000 YSL dress down to $250, and a $4,000 Valentino is being sold for $700. They’ve got several Kule tees (Poole Shop and Neiman Marcus carry the brand) marked under $50 that would easily cost $100 new. Tons of other tops are marked between $10-$40 that cost at least $200 brand new. Keep in mind, these items were originally purchased from incredibly high-end retailers — you’re getting a really good deal, but don’t expect TJ Maxx prices.
