Last week, I sent an email to our newsletter subscribers discussing our annual “End of Year” sale, and I had full intentions of posting about it here on the day it started (Friday November 29th). However, we were so swamped Friday and Saturday with customers hoping to hit the sale early that I never even had a chance! I apologize for the delay, and here is all the information you need:

Sale prices apply for in-stock items only and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. However, special orders placed and paid for during the sale will also be eligible for 10% off the price. If you are not local, we will ship orders for a flat $5.00 fee which includes tracking. Shipping cannot be refunded in the event of a return.
You will note I said “miscellaneous” bras will be on sale for 30% off the retail price. From past fashion orders as well as special orders that did not pan out, I have quite a selection of hodgepodge styles in the shop. If you’d like to know what’s available, please email sophisticatedpair[at]gmail[dot]com, and I will double-check what’s in your size range.
Special Birthday Sale
My birthday is December 27th, and per tradition, I will be offering a special sale on this day. On the 27th only, customers who wish me a “Happy Birthday” either at the shop or over the phone qualify for a special sale. I will suspend all other sale prices for this day only, and in exchange, anyone who wishes me a happy birthday will get 20% off everything in the store. For some items, the special sale price is higher than the regular sale, but for considerably more products, the special sale price gives you quite a boost in the discount. I will also let the 20% apply to special orders placed and paid for on the 27th only. On the 28th, the regular sale prices resume.
A note about special orders: I have a rack of outstanding orders in the back right now, and these will not be eligible for the added discounts of the sale. Whatever the original discount was supposed to be (depending on whether it was a regular order or a pre-order) is what you receive. I feel like that is the only fair way to apply the sale.
Website Prices: After a protracted internal debate, I have ultimately decided not to update the website with our sale prices. In the past, we have had customers place large orders through the web to take advantage of the sale and return the bulk of the order. Larger retailers can support this, but for us, it means added fees, loss of inventory we could sell to other customers, and the hassle of processing returns. Consequently, out-of-town customers can take advantage of the sale only through email or over the phone. I feel like this will encourage a dialogue about what the customer wants and what size would be best instead of rolling the dice on an untested sale style. My apologies for the inconvenience!
Gift Boxes: I’ll be posting more info on gift boxes in the future, but we will be offering a gift wrapping service this year. It costs $5.00, and everything you place inside the box receives 5% off the price (including sale items).
Closed Sunday December 22 – Wednesday December 25th
December 26th: 11a.m. to 5p.m.

We will resume normal business hours on January 2nd. Also, given the holiday time frame, I may close early the week following Christmas depending on weather and how many customers we see at the shop. We can also accept appointments for days we are closed except for the 24th, 25th, and 1st.
Happy Holidays everyone!
