The Vera Bradley Outlet Sale is probably the biggest Vera Bradley event of the year! It is still on my bucket list, but when you work in events it can be hard to get to. Every April I am working the weekend of the outlet sale.
This year's Vera Bradley Outlet Sale (Twitter hashtag #VBOS13) will be April 9-14 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. Tickets will be required for April 9, 10 & 11 and admission is free April 12, 13 & 14. Tickets for the first three days are $5 and will go on sale February 1st. They are not currently listed on Ticketmaster, but that is how they were available last year.
For ticketed days, you will have to buy a ticket for a specific session. Session times are 7:30am - 10:00am, 11:00am - 1:30pm, 2:30pm - 5:00pm and 6:00pm - 8:30pm. There are 3,500 tickets available for each session. Each customer can buy up to eight tickets.
Hours for April 12 & 13 are 8:00am - 8:00pm, and April 14 is 10:00am - 4:00pm.
Note: parking is $4 for the main lot and $8 in the preferred lot.
Last year there was a $3,500 maximum per person. I would assume that it will be the same again this year.
You can get all kinds of great deals at the outlet sale! Plus you never know what you might find. They will have retired colors and styles, some current stuff and sometimes even retired styles in current colors or the opposite.
The Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer will have their quilt on display at the outlet: http://www.verabradley.org/posts/323-2012-Foundation-Ribbons-Quilt-Tour
