    Shop Devine Street’s Summer Sidewalk Sale This Weekend!

    August has begun, and summer is slowly beginning to slip away from us. The football players are beginning to report back to school in anticipation of the start of the college football season, teachers are preparing their classrooms to welcome back students, and the last of the summer beach trips are winding down. It won’t feel like fall is in the air anytime soon, but we can definitely tell that it’s right around the corner!
     
    Another big hint that summer is coming to a close and fall is just around the corner?
     
    This weekend is the annual Devine Street Sidewalk Sale! Held on the first weekend of August to coincide with your back to school shopping and South Carolina’s Tax Free weekend, this is a sale that you definitely want to shop! You can stroll along the sidewalks, drop into your favorite boutiques, and eat at a few delicious local bakeries and restaurants. The sale begins Friday, August 3, and runs through Sunday, August 5.
     
    Kick off the weekend right at Craft and Draft on Thursday, August 2, from 11am until 7pm where they’ll be featuring Cottontown Brew Lab Sour Project’s latest beer. Call it an early evening on Thursday so you can be well-rested and prepared to shop the day away on Friday!
     
    Where are you planning to shop? Here are a few shops that we recommend!
     
    Best Mattress — you’ll love shopping their locally made and handcrafted mattresses! Better yet? They are tax free this weekend and include a free bed frame or luxury pillow along with two years of no interest.
     
    Craft and Draft — enjoy 10% off all merchandise (have you seen their great new gear? Check it out!) and growler fills, plus $1 off all pints all weekend long beginning on Friday.
     
    Pink Sorbet — closed on Sundays, you’ll want to make sure you stop by Pink Sorbet early in the weekend! You’ll find the lowest prices of the season on clearance Lilly Pulitzer apparel for women, men, and children including swimsuits, dresses, shoes, resort wear, jewelry, and more.
     
    POUT — also closed on Sundays, stop by on Friday or Saturday to shop their sale! Select cosmetics and skincare will be 75% off.
     
    How do you plan to tackle all of your Sidewalk Sale Shopping? We recommend fueling up at Silver Spoon Bake Shop with a coffee and a delicious pastry for breakfast, dining at Urban Cookhouse for an outdoor lunch, and winding down the evening over a glass of wine and authentic Italian meal at Il Giorgione.
     
    We’ll see you out there this weekend!
