Women’s Board’s Best Dressed Sale returns to Evergreen

The Johns Hopkins Best Dressed Sale and Boutique, a fund-raiser of the Women’s Board of The Johns Hopkins Hospital, returns this weekend to the Carriage House at Evergreen Museum & Library.

Now in its 42nd year, the sale—which in recent years has raised $150,000 for patient care at the hospital—offers gently used and some new clothing for women, including designer dresses and shoes, vintage apparel, furs, shoes, accessories and wedding gowns; children’s wear; and a large selection of men’s suits, coats, jackets, formal wear and ties.

The event begins on Thursday, Oct. 1, with pre-sale shopping, fashion consultations and light refreshments ($40 in advance, $45 at the door) from 4 to 8 p.m. and continues (free admission) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 2; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 3; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 4, when most items are half price.
