On Sale: Bargains for brides
By — Janet Bennett Kelly,
Wedding plans? Then plan to attend the April 29 Running of the Brides at Filene’s Basement at Mazza Gallerie. More than 1,700 brand-name gowns (sizes 2–26), originally priced as high as $10,000, will be sold for $249 to $699. Although bargain-hunting brides have been known to line up for hours before the doors open, deals can be found all day. Sales are final. 8 a.m.-9 p.m. 5300 Wisconsin Ave. NW, 202-966-0208. filenesbasement.com/running-of-the-brides.

A men’s shawl-collar sweater for $59.50 is now $34.99. Through April 26. Available in stores, online (canvas.landsend.com) and through the catalogue (877-877-1963).
