The Holidays Are Here!

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, and the rest of the wonderful wintery holidays coming up soon after, it’s fair to say we’ve officially hit the holiday season! We’ve got a few special sales and treats coming up for you before 2014 comes to a close—check out what’s on deck:

Missed out on the Glitter Sale? Still need that perfect holiday outfit accent? Click over to our online Sparkle Sale! The sale will include vintage, designer, and unique jewelry at affordable prices—and proceeds, like everything we do, will support our job training and education programs!

Get out your ribbons, glitter, hot glue, and sewing machines! It’s time for a Holiday Do-It-Yourself (DIY) contest! Submit your project with a before and after photo, a list of materials you used, and a brief description of what you did for a chance to be highlighted on our blog and maybe even win a prize package!

We’re closed on Thanksgiving to allow our store staff and employees to enjoy the holiday with their families—but we DO have a day-after-Thanksgiving sale! Join us on November 28th for 40% off all color tags (except yellow) at all stores (excluding outlets).

Remember that #SparkleSale we talked about above? This year on Monday December 1st, we’ll list a number of items with a buy-it-now option for Cyber Monday! You won’t need to bid – or wait for an auction to be over – if you see something you like, you can nab it right away!

Twice each year we invite customers to donate their spare change from their purchases to support our free job training and education programs. This year, our winter Round Up campaign will last from November 23 – January 3. Your spare change can change lives!

On December 24th (Christmas Eve), our stores will close early at 6 pm so our staff can enjoy the evening with their families. ALL stores will be closed on Christmas.

On December 31st (New Year’s Eve), our stores will close early at 6 pm so our staff can change into their party duds and ring in the new year. Stores open a little late on January 1st—at 10am—and close a little early that day as well (6 pm)

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season, and look forward to your Holiday DIY contest submissions!
