Nitsa’s in Phillips Place is closing and they’ve marked EVERYTHING in the store down by 70%.

Nitsa’s has a store in Winston, so they are not going out of business. Just closing their CLT location. While we are so sad to see them go, you know we cannot resist a deep discount on designer wear.

Ana the Intern and I shopped the sale yesterday, to check it out for you. The sale is 70% off the lowest marked price. So, an additional 70% off those items already on sale as well.  There are lots of wedding gowns, deb dresses, MOB, MOG, and Bridesmaids dresses from luxe brands on sale at 70% off. Sizes range, and they are not all teeny tiny either. There are also plenty of evening gowns, black tie dresses and formals on sale at 70% off, again, a nice range of sizes. Some are high end designers, like Herve Leger, others started off at a more mid-range price and now are under $200.

Whatever your style as a bride, this sale definitely has something for you. There are FAR FAR too many gowns to show you, and they are at sample sale prices, but not in sample condition or limited to sample sizing. If you are a bride or deb within 100 miles of CLT, you must shop this sale.

Victor Harper gown $1155 ( was $5500 ) This one would work for a dressy gala, not just a bride, with the ballet length hem and champagne shade
