The second installment of the Sale Soiree will take place Thursday, January 27th from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Memminger Auditorium. 

Come dressed to impress and shop the night away when Charleston’s fashion and retail community come together to cut prices on apparel and accessories and showcase cutting edge trends with a fashion show featuring runway looks from local designers Krista Beth Huff, Julia Faye Davison, Mamie Ruth, Suite 33, MEW Designs and Tisdale-Verona. 

Tickets are $10 in advance ($15 at the door) and include complimentary champagne cocktails, a “Beautification Station” featuring beauty experts from Stella Nova and sponsored prizes from Cynthia Rowley for the most fashionable fillies.  

The founder of the Sale Soiree, Tara Mills says “This is one shopping experience that won’t give you buyer’s remorse. What most might not realize is that 100% of the proceeds raised from this event go to charity.  PAR (People Against Rape) is the charity that will receive the proceeds from this event. This rape crisis center has been helping survivors regain dignity and respect in Charleston for close to 30 years.”

Tickets may be purchased at or at any participating retailer. Participating retailers include Biton, Strawberry Blonde Salon, iheart, V2V, Finicky Filly, Treats For Tresses, Candy Shop Vintage, Butterfly Consignment, Berlin's for Women, Thera M, Monkee's of Daniel Island, Park West Dentistry, RockBand, MEW Designs, Mamie Ruth, Library Archives of Fashion, Stella Nova, and Flip-Flix. 

For three days following the sale, vendors who participated in the event will be offering exclusive perks and additional discounts to anyone who attended the soiree.

The fashion show will begin promptly at 9 p.m. with an after party hosted by Charleston After Dark at NV Dance Lounge.
