Our upcoming Annual Outlet Sale is special this year — it’s the 35th anniversary of this unique shopping event in Fort Wayne, Indiana. What started in 1983 as a sale in a 10’ by 10’ tent is now a five-day event in a 100,000 square foot convention center! That’s right — imagine rows upon rows of your favorite Vera Bradley styles, all at discounted prices. Get your wish list ready, because this is going to be our best year ever!
The Annual Outlet Sale has evolved into a shopping destination and fun getaway for girlfriends! Over 45,000 fans from all 50 states (and a few countries, too) flood our hometown to shop the sale, dine at local restaurants and visit the best Fort Wayne spots.
If you’re a newbie to the Annual Outlet Sale, we’re here to help! A few of our associates shared their top tips for a successful and fun time at the sale.
“The first three days of the sale offer multiple ticketed sessions and the last two days are open to the public, with no ticket required to enter. If you want the best selection, definitely register early!” – Jillian
“Wear a backpack or crossbody at the sale. Being hands-free is key when trying to fill your arms with new styles! You’ll thank me later!” – Kaylee
“Use your map! You’ll receive a map of the floor when you walk in, so you can strategically pick where to shop first based on your wish list.” – Elise
“Wear comfortable shoes! The Allen County Memorial Coliseum is huge, so you don’t want a poor choice of footwear to damper the day.” – Jenna
“You can make a difference at the sale, too! Make a donation to the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer and help support other local organizations present at the sale!” – Holly
There’s still time to join the fun! We’re just three weeks away from our biggest event of the year, so there’s no better time to make your reservation.
