You can look at the state of the economy in 2 ways:
- Oh no! I’m going to hunker down.
- Okay, we’re in this situation, I’m not going to put my life on hold. Let’s shop! But wait a minute…shop where? Where there’s sales and good deals…yes! In Bellevue!
The HOT sheet:
Overlake Service League. Located in Bellevue Square. This place has donations from wealthy West Bellevue people who got a Crate and Barrel place setting that didn’t work for them. Their loss, your gain. Or, a wealthy Medina family donates Mom’s Versace, Christian Dior, and diamond ring. Or, 20-something donates her Michael Stars tees and Juicy Couture accessories.
Great prices and good quality items. Plus, you can help give back to the community by attending one of Overlake’s fundraisers: Join Co-Chairs, Seattle Seahawk’s Sean Locklear and TJ Duckett, as they join former Mariners – Paul Sorrento, Jeff Nelson, Bill Haselman, and other Sports Celebrities – for a great day of golf and a fun awards dinner and auction. Or, the March 19, 2009 – 10th Annual Step Up to the Plate Benefit Luncheon – benefiting our youth and other social service programs.
Mercer in Bellevue Square is having a recession-friendly sale on a couple of True Religion and Union jean styles. This is ongoing until they run out, so get in there and save now. Platinum VIP’s get 15% off regular priced clothing.
For the bride: Voletta Couture on Bellevue Way has sample gowns starting at $1,000 and up. These are designer gowns, and this is the bridal salon of the bridal elite. What a great opportunity to shop the best and save big!
Regardless of how you see the situation, the one thing that is clear is that there are deals to be had.
