UAL (United Apparel Liquidators)

I don't want you all to think this is turning into a "Ms. Cheap blog"...it's not. But if I come across great deals in the area of fashion, I feel the need to pass them along to you.

Thanks to my friend and client Danielle, I am able to share some very exciting news about a new store in Nashville! It is called UAL (United Apparel Liquidators), and is located at 2819 West End Ave. (just across the street from Panera where Vandyland used to be). I had no idea what to expect when I went in there, but I liked what I saw! Every brand from Betsey Johnson to Dolce & Gabana, from Velvet to Prada. The way they work is, they buy from retailers (mostly boutiques and sometimes the designers themselves) and then they are able to sell the items at 70 to 90% off of the retail price. I'm talking some of the cutest dresses I've ever seen! They have men's, women's and children's clothing, shoes and accessories.

Just some examples of what they have and the prices...$340 Jimmy Choo shoes for $102.99, a lovely $2,195 Prada dress for $713. Now I know some of this doesn't seem too cheap, but considering the brands you are getting, some are willing to pay it! And for the real bargain shoppers, how about $300 Meltin' Pot Italian ladies and men's jeans for $9.99? and a cute $320 Betsey Johnson dress for $49.99? I also spotted some Chloe sunglasses for $70, and some Velvet tanks and tunics(which are so awesomely soft and comfy) for $19.99. There were also Common Threads skirts for $24.99. They also had some great knock-off sunglasses for $7.

UAL is very much a no frills place (concrete floors...kind of a warehouse feel, exposed ceilings). But the staff is super friendly, and super fashionable. I had my baby girl there with me, and one of the associates asked me what size she wore. She went to the kids rack (which was all closeout stuff from Fred Segal) and pulled everything in her size! How refreshing! Most of the kids stuff she brought me had original prices from $100-300 and were marked down to $4-10.

So next time you are in the area, stop by UAL. Hours are 10 a.m.–7 p.m. Mondays–Saturdays and noon–6 p.m. on Sundays. The number is (615) 340-9999. And if you aren't a Nashvegas resident, you can check out their other locations in Hattiesburg, Miss., New Orleans and Covington, KY. They don't have a website, but you can check them out at http://www.myspace.com/ualfashion

Happy Shopping!

I don't like that you're sharing this great news with anyone but family! Don't you know everyone will go and get all the good stuff?? To anyone reading this....she's just kidding...this place does not exist....really!

Maybe if you would stay un-pregnant for longer than a day, you could go shopping with me and I wouldn't HAVE to share this info with others ;)

Love the new look of your page!
Mother's Day is coming up, so I just assumed you would get me the Prada dress...I'm correct to assume that, right??? I mean, that's pocket change for you. :)
If I ever come visit, I'll have to go shopping there, but I'll be on the $9.99 rack! ;)
Lindsey, you crack me up!
