The Hoosier state is famous for a lot of reasons; namely, its famed Indianapolis 500 Mile Race (the Indy 500) and the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. But what the serious shoppers of the Circle City know that you may not is that Indiana is also home to one of one of the most famous people to come from the Indianapolis area–Fort Wayne’s own Vera Bradley.
This world-famous retailer for purses, handbags, and a growing line of accessories is still based in Fort Wayne, and every year as Spring breezes through Indy, it’s time to shop till you drop at the annual Vera Bradley Outlet Sale. This enormously popular three-day sale is one of Indianapolis’ favorite events of the season, partially because the merchandise appeals to women and girls of all ages.
Determined shoppers are bussed in from all over the Midwest for the sale, and some line up overnight to ensure the best deals on the widest variety of purchases in the morning. Vera Bradley customers are fiercely loyal and stock up on not only gifts for friends and family members, but most buy themselves a considerable amount of presents as well. With everything marked at 40-75% off, it’s no wonder the Vera Bradley Outlet Sale is one of the largest of its kind in the country.
And if you’re not that into purses, you might want to consider checking out the sale anyway, because Vera Bradley also makes some of the most popular luggage to ever travel the skies. In addition, you can stock up on accessories like headbands, glasses cases, stationery, and more. It’s an Indianapolis shopper’s paradise.
The sale takes place April 13 – April 17, 2011
The heaviest crowds are on Thursday, so make sure to get there early if you’re worried about selection. If you’d rather wade through a less crowded atmosphere and take your chances on the goods, Saturday is your best bet.
