Where the Sidewalk Ends
Every summer, glamazons in their power shopping gear (think Tory Burch flats, a breezy sundress and your most oversized oversize bag) flock to the streets of Cherry Creek North as though the mother ship is calling them home. All of this, in the name of the Annual Sidewalk Sale. Not to be confused with just any sale, this one takes the cake in Colorado, serving up fashionable bargains by the Birkin bagload. Now in its 41st year, the Sidewalk Sale offers Denver’s best chance to nab designer duds without the price tag to match. Most of the usual Cherry Creek North suspects are in on the deal, which begins this Thursday morning and runs through Sunday evening. Here, Reign dishes on our picks for this year’s can’t miss discounts. Our advice? Get there early, and leave your sweet side at home. This is serious shopping, ladies…take no prisoners.
