Outdoor Mega Tag Sale to Benefit Dress for Success Western Mass.

Dress for Success Western Massachusetts will host another of its popular clothing tag sales June 17-23 — this time outside under a huge tent in the parking lot of the Eastfield Mall. Hundreds of women have refreshed their wardrobes at past tag sales, while at the same time supporting Dress for Success’ mission to empower women to achieve economic independence.

Women can choose from an extensive array of clothing, shoes, accessories and more. These new and gently used items include selections from name-brand fashion houses such as Anne Klein, Evan Picone, Ellen Tracy and many more. Customers can fill a shopping bag for only $25 or a larger bag for $45.

If you have clothing that you would like to donate, please call (413) 732-8179 to make an appointment.

Because the tag sale is outside, there will not be rooms to try on clothes. If anyone buys something that does not fit, they can pass it on to friends or others in need.

The tag sale will be held June 17, through June 23, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the parking lot of the Eastfield Mall at 1655 Boston Road, Springfield, where Dress for Success maintains a boutique.

Volunteers are needed on June 13-16 to set up, June 17-23 to staff the tag sale, and June 24 and 25 to break down the event. If you are interested, contact dressforsuccessspringfield@gmail.com.
