GET SOME GREAT DEALS FOR A STEAL!!!!
STOCKTON, CA, March 11, 2011, – The ever-popular Nearly New Sale, put on by the Fashion Club of Delta College will be held Friday, April 8, 2011 from 10 am to 4 pm in Danner Hall on the Delta College Campus.
The Fashion Event Production class and the Fashion Club at Delta College will be transforming Danner Hall into a full retail environment, dressing rooms and all! Customers will be able to get their hands on some brand-new and nearly new apparel and goods from name brand names like William Rast, Calvin Klein, UGG, Coach, Guess, TSD, Michael Stars, Betsey Johnson, GAP, BCBG MaxAzria, and more, at garage sale prices, with some items starting at just $1. The inventory includes apparel for men, women and kids, prom & formal dresses, home goods, shoes, accessories (scarves, wallets, handbags) and gift items, all donated from retailers and manufacturers in the apparel industry.
This year Gary Long’s jewelers has donated some semi-previous and sterling jewelry, Cut Loose sent four large cases of women’s apparel, Flair Boutique generously donated some gorgeous women’s wear, Maxine’s Bridal gave prom dresses, even the Haggin Gift Shop donated some great jewelry! There is an abundant amount of inventory and amazing deals!
Other the retailers that have supported the event have included Stockton retailers like With Garden Flair, CR Porter, Boggiano's, Stage Two, Theadora, Foot Solutions, Spike’s Men’s Shop, Maxines Bridal, Bellas Bridal, Sundance Sports, DeVons Jewelers. Lodi supporters have included City Girl, 2 Plus 2, Pret, PDC The Boutique, Spectator, Willow Tree, Sierra Adventure Outfitters. From San Francisco, inventory has been donated by Weston Wear, The Sak, Cut Loose, Flax, Inc., and in Berkley from Two Star Dog. Pottery World in Rocklin has also donated to the event’s inventory!
The average price of jeans is $5, designer denim is priced from $10, shoes start at $5, t’s and tanks from $1, dresses $5 and up and accessory prices vary from $1 to $10 depending on the product. But, all prices are rock bottom, way below wholesale.
Since the inventory is donated, it varies from semester to semester, but always features great brands and unbelievable prices! This event is so popular that people come from as far away as Sacramento, Modesto and the Bay Area and a line is formed at the door several hours before the opening time!
The students involved in planning the event have developed it from start to finish, creating a marketing plan, soliciting donations on behalf of the program from local and out of town boutiques, manufacturers and retailers. This is truly a showcase of the students’ learned skills, diligence and passion from within the Fashion Program. The students have to solicit merchandise, price it, display and merchandise it and sell it…. Everything they will do in the merchandising trade.
The Nearly New Sale has been covered by Good Day Sacramento and the Record and has had customers drive from all over the Northern California area to attend. Customers can follow us on Facebook, view photos of merchandise and watch videos from the event: https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=164828170233052&ref=ts.
The Fashion Program Director, Leslie Asfour says, “the experience for fashion students is invaluable. It’s a real-world application of everything they have learned. And, since the funds directly benefit them, from the fashion event on the 6th, where their work will be show cased to the industry tours, like New York in June, the event is worth their time and energy. So it benefits both the producers (students) and the customers who attend, because the deals are amazing. It’s a win-win!”
Fashion Merchandising student, Camille Wall, commented, “The Nearly New Sale is probably the best hands-on experience a student in this major can get! This will be my 3rd sale I’ve worked on, and each time is different. Every time we are presented with different challenges and each time, it’s been a pleasure working with Leslie and my fellow students in problem solving. We’ve put a lot of hard work into this event and we hope to have another successful sale this semester. I’ve also done my fair share of shopping and the prices cannot be beat! Come early, there is usually a line!”
This is one of the club’s major fundraisers and the monies raised will benefit the Fashion Scholarship fund, including all financial support for the annual Story of Design Fashion Show, which will be held at the end of the semester on Friday, May 6th. The Story of Design is a showcase of student work in apparel design, fashion merchandising, retailing, marketing, illustration and interior design.
Donations continue to arrive daily. If you’d like to donate, please email email@example.com for more information. There is a $1 parking fee, the closest lot is SHIMA -1 (S-1).
