Everyone loves a deal, and here at Houstonia, we've got your back. As stores rush to clear out remaining Christmas inventory, our inbox is flush with winter sale announcements—and lucky for you, we're in the business of paying it forward. Here, a roundup of some of our favorite sales beginning—or, gasp, ending—soon. Don't say we never did anything for you.
1. à bientôt's Annual Winter Sale
Now this one is a BFD. This beloved River Oaks retailer graciously, drastically lowers its price-points twice a year, and you have one week to get your sweaters, scarves, and cashmere throws for a fraction of the fee–we're talking at least 20 percent and up to 90 (!!) percent off here, folks. This is your only chance for such savings before June, when the store's annual summer sale sends scores of savvy shoppers to River Oaks Boulevard, where they line the blocks for a chance to dig in the bins.
January 13-20, 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m.; à bientôt, 2501 River Oaks Blvd.
2. Elaine Turner's Semi-Annual Shoe Sale
We're sorry for the late notice, but there's still time to act: Shoes by this Houston designer are up to 70 percent off until midnight tonight, January 8. To sweeten the deal, ground shipping is free on orders of $50 or more.
January 8 until 12 a.m.; Elaine Turner, various locations.
3. Forty Five Ten Select Sale
