Independence Day sale events and celebrations throughout the week

Independence Day falls on a Monday this year which means the sales start over the weekend. Here is a round up of some good sales to help you get your summer closet together:

Alexis Suitcase: The popular consignment store will be having a July 4th sale and it will be one of their biggest for the summer. The entire store will be on sale from July 1 - 3. Since there are no exclusions, that means even designer brands are available. High end items will be 10% off and other items will be up to 75% off. You can catch brands such as Louis Vuitton, J. Crew, Rebecca Taylor, Tory Burch and more. This sale will take place at all 3 locations; Buckhead, Sandy Springs, and Alpharetta. 2221 Peachtree Road NE, Suite H. 770-390-0010 ext. 1

Sports Authority: While the initial 'going out of business' sales weren't great and the discounts didn't put a major dent in the price, the liquidation sale has moved to 25%-50% off items. This should make your shopping experience a bit better with major discounts that will help you save. From higher end workout gear to sports equipment, these items won't last long. As with all 'going out of business' sales, if you don't purchase now at the current discount, you risk that item not being available when the deeper discounts are available. Sports Authority is expected to end all sales by the end of August.

L'Occitane 40th anniversary event: Head over to The Shops Buckhead Atlanta to help L'Occitance celebrate 40 years. Bask in the sweet scents and check out some great natural beauty and skincare made in France. Enjoy mini facials and hand massages while learning more about the product offerings. While there, enter in the drawing to win some L'Occitane products. Some items will be on sale as well. Call to set up an appointment. June 30th, 10 a.m.- 7 p.m.. L'Occitane, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, 262 Buckhead Avenue, Space #C322. 404-869-8400.
