If you're a shopaholic, you must love this time of year. Stores start to clear out their winter items to make room for new inventory, and you get to indulge in clearance sales!!
Last night while waiting for a friend to show up for a movie, I walked around Phillips Place, peering through the windows of all the little boutiques. Here's some advice for shop owners: Put signs of sales up near windows. You never know when someone's looking in. Take a look at what I found just from a casual stroll down the sidewalks of and near Phillips Place:

Montaldos Furs is having an Inauguration Sale. What that means, I don't know, as that's pretty much all the sign said from what I could see, anyway. 6809 Phillips Place Court, Ste AA. 704-552-4955
Sunglass Charlotte, the Q.C.'s only independent sunglass emporium, has Blinde sunglasses 50 percent off.
