It’s been awhile since I provided any updates for the 2011 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale! Can you believe it’s less than a week away? I don’t have too much to say yet – just a couple of reminders. Next week I will have a lot more information. As soon as I get home Wednesday, I plan to post the price list, along with any pictures I take. Can’t wait!
First, here’s a fun video I found of last year’s sale. If you have never attended, it’s a great little sneak peek of what to expect. Or, if you have attended in the past, it may bring back some memories! Just ignore the dates in the video (they’re from 2010).
The last time I checked, there were still tickets available for the last session on Thursday evening – these can be purchased through Ticketmaster. Tickets for all other sessions were sold out.
No ticket? No problem! You can still attend on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. These days are general admission. However, there is a good chance there will be long lines to both get into the sale and to check out.
Also, have you registered yet? This year, registration is free. Anyone who wants to make a purchase at the sale will need to be registered. This can be done at the sale, but why hassle with another line? It’s very easy to do it online, although if you wait until Monday, it will be too late! The deadline is Sunday, April 10th, at midnight EST.
Here are the registration links:
For individuals and groups of 14 or less: http://www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=931250
For groups of 15 or more: http://www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=938317
When I completed the individual registration, I had to provide my name, email address, and street address. I also had to create a password (although I’m not really sure why!). If you are registering others, you will probably want to collect this information from them before logging in.
I received an e-mail confirmation within a minute of registering. Print a copy of this confirmation – you will need it when you check out at the sale. In addition to the registration confirmation, you will also need to present the cashier with a photo ID. The Vera Bradley company uses this registration to enforce its purchase limit of $3000.
Well, that’s all I have today. Make sure you check back next week, when I will be providing more details about the 2011 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale.
