Best Dressed Sale planned for Nov. 10 to 13 at Evergreen

Designer dresses and shoes, contemporary fashions, classic accessories and vintage clothing are among the items that will be on the racks at the Johns Hopkins Best Dressed Sale and Boutique, now in its 44th year, waiting for a place in the closets of bargain-conscious shoppers. As usual, the sale will feature both gently used and some new designer clothing, along with the vintage apparel, furs, shoes and wedding gowns. There will be a large selection of men’s suits, coats, jackets, formal wear and ties.

The event takes place in the Carriage House at Evergreen Museum & Library. The pre-sale will be from 4 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 10, with an admission fee of $45 in advance or $55 at the door. The pre-sale offers a less chaotic shopping experience and also a cocktail buffet, informal modeling and a fashion consultation. The event continues, with free admission, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 11; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12; and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. (when most items will be half price) on Sunday, Nov. 13.

Thousands of shoppers turn out each year for this fundraiser, which is sponsored by The Women’s Board of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. All proceeds from the event, which in recent years has raised $150,000, will support patient care at the hospital.
