The LF warehouse sale is legendary for a few reasons. One, there's always a ton of merchandise. Two, the deals are ridiculously good. And three, competition from fellow shoppers is notoriously brutal. Get excited: the sale is returning this weekend. It opens Friday morning at 10am, but serious shoppers know to start lining up way before that. The sale happens to have its own Yelp entry; for newbies, we've reposted quotes from a few sale veterans:
"My $150 bag that I purchased for $35 and my expensive leather jacket snagged for $50 made waking up before dawn and tussling through a mob of bargain hungry women (myself being one of them) well worth it."—Kia W.
"It's work—you really have to sift through clothes, shoes, belts, jewelry, etc (while also bobbing, weaving and fighting off savage school teachers). And what's a killer warehouse sale without horrid dressing room conditions? 15x10 foot sweat box with 50 women, 6 rinky-dink munchkin mirrors and bodies that make you wanna wash your eyes out with acid...good times. The deals are worth the trouble, for those who aren't easily traumatized."—Erin M.
"After stopping by this sale briefly (and during the last hour of the last day to boot), I can not imagine ever ever ever ever EVER purchasing a single thing at an LF store for full retail price."—Amber B.
