East Boulevard Sidewalk Sale

It’s here, it’s here! This weekend is one of my favorites each year in Charlotte: East Boulevard Sidewalk Sale weekend (specifically, Saturday, June 2). It’s the time when the shops down this cute stretch in Dilworth haul last season’s leftovers and this season’s sale items onto the lawn or respective discount racks and tables. It’s when you can get tasty additions from Pour Olive for your summer dinner menus and silky body lotions from Cottage Chic. It’s when you snag cute summer dresses (with price tags that make your eyes dance with delight) from Petal and Sloan, and trendy jewelry from Laura James, among countless other goodies from the big players.

Without further ado, here’s how it’s going down this year:

-Petal: 20 percent off regular price items, 50 percent off already marked down sale items, and a $1 table, plus $5, $10, and $25 racks
