Let’s be honest – it’s the last of the good weather. The Sidewalk Sale during Carnaval on the Mile is a great way to get your weekend shopping on without compromising on your comfortable outdoor time, while also scoring some amazing deals at your favorite Gables shopping spots.

The Sidewalk Sale has quickly become a tradition in Downtown Coral Gables. Coral Gables retailers set up shop outside and participate in the Carnaval fun by offering discounts on their merchandise. It’s a fun, community event that rethinks how we shop in the Gables area for just one day while marking prices way down. Think: 20-70% (yes – 70%!) off of everything that the Mile has to offer; that means that you can save on the baubles and accessories, shoes, work wardrobe staples, home furnishings and salon services like haircuts and manicures.

With the eminent start of spring comes an inevitable list of pros and cons.

Pro: Back to the beach and the boat! That means you can take advantage of swim and resort wear sales and stock up on the bright prints and lightweight dresses that we’re so good at wearing around here. Spring, it’s an excuse to shop!

Con: It’s hot. That’s right, I said it, it’s hot and it’s humid and it does terrible things to your hair every year, but that doesn’t mean the many salons in the Gables area aren’t here to help you move into spring with a brave face and a great cut. Let them work their magic at discounted prices that you can score at the Sidewalk Sale.

We’ll see you this weekend for the Sidewalk Sale where you’ll score deals on everything that you want to be wearing as we say so long, farewell to the “winter.”
