Some of the retailers that caught my eye include J Crew (Friendship Heights Location), J McLaughlin (Georgetown), Kate Spade (Georgetown), Sassanova (Georgetown & Bethesda), Vineyard Vines (Georgetown), Karen Miller (Georgetown), Shoefly (Arlington) and the Preppy Pink Pony (McLean). The full list of stores is here and there are MANY more.
The card is $20 (plus a $5 processing fee). The $20 gets donated directly to the League to promote its literacy-based programs. Click HERE to purchase a card. And just to clarify, anyone can buy a card- you do not need to be a JLW member. Don't forget that cards are only valid at the store locations listed, so you can't use them online or out of town...sorry non-DC readers! Maybe other Junior Leagues do this too, though?
Since Shop Around week doesn't actually start till April 30th, I've done some virtual shopping around for a few things I might be interested in purchasing once I can hit the stores!
I've always wanted a J McLaughlin bamboo clutch, but they never go on sale...maybe now's the time!
My obsession with stripes has been renewed this spring, and this Kate Spade Jilly dress fits the bill!
My dad and my brother both have birthdays coming up...and they both look dashing in Vineyard Vines...hmmm!
Enjoy the Shop Around and feel free to spread the word to other like-minded shoppers. The JLW does amazing things with its literacy programs, and they would certainly appreciate the support!
