How to have the best shopping experience for you & your girls (AND Guys!!) this Holiday Season when visiting Lisa’s Warehouse 2017 Spring Sale.
Hello my friends! Are you thinking of coming out this year to one of the biggest warehouse sales of the GTA? If so, then you’re on the right track (something I call “the beauty train”). This sale is not only one of the biggest warehouse sales of the GTA; Lisa’s Cosmetics Sale is your one stop shop for Holiday gift giving (and getting – from yourself!) with the biggest name brands in cosmetics and fragrances sold at unbelievably low prices – up to 80% off, what?! In my experience, the gift giving options at this sale are perfect for any shopper, and completely incomparable to other warehouse sales.
Not only am I a huge fan of the sale, I have become the best Lisa’s Shopper if I don’t say so myself! And if you’ve ever been to ANY limited time warehouse sale, I know you’ll agree that you’ve gotta be a tough shopper to truly enjoy yourself. I’m here to share my own tips with you as well as the best ones that I’ve found online with you to truly get the best experience this year at Lisa’s Sale.
It can be chilly in the morning while you wait – and the wait CAN be kinda long. PLEASE dress accordingly to your needs (! If you do feel the need to wear a jacket – GRAB 2 (or 3 yes I see you ladies!) SHOPPING BAGS from the front entrance. You can throw your jacket in one and your shopping supplies in the other.
I frequent Lisa’s Cosmetics Warehouse Sale’s page on FB cause, well this sale is bomb. But really I do in case they get new brands and stuff and the sale is right before the Holidays as well as Mother’s Day in the Spring… It’s easy to be aware of their posts to stay connected and know I can buy what I want, when I want. I end up saving up for those seasons and I end up with more cash when I plan it with this sale HEHE. Anywho! I found one awesome tip from a fellow shopper (Shout out to Jennifer Duern!) – wear a LIGHT jacket aka a wind breaker with a zipper for extra storage of personal belongings. Also from FB (thank you to Mariam Memom!!) a GREAT tip – wear comfortable shoes. Like I said (and most of you know) the wait may or may not be long if you’re lucky aka reading this and my next tip J.
Come to the sale during slower times, and not peak hours. The sale starts at 10am and there will almost always be a huge line-up at AND before this time. Some people will shack up outside to get the best products, that are literally available just before the last days of the sale. THIS is from my experience!! I find that everything I loved was still there almost every year on the last days I attended the sale. Don’t stress! There is so much stock and you will find what you are looking for. Do yourself the favour of coming in the afternoon, on the second weekend of the sale or on Fridays/Mondays ~2-4 pm.
A busy mind is happier. AND there are so many types of moisturizers available inside that ALL crustiness must be left outside :P. In all honesty. Keep busy, we’re all fighting the good fight at this sale. Everyone will go home happy if we start off happy!!
YOUTUBE TIP: From a few different users and also in my own experience and knowledge; CHILDREN under 10 aren’t allowed in. To be honest I’ve introduced a new girlfriend every year to this sale and I’ve had the best and most fun times with all the different friends I’ve brought. Leave the kids at home and make it a date on a less busy time that you all can come.
If you can save the space to shop and get through the booths, do so. Only bring what you need in terms of payment (they accept cash, credit or debit/interac payment) – keep it in whatever wallet of yours is the smallest – preferably a crossbody purse or like, fanny pack. Desperate times call for 90’s measures!! Those are TWO tips from Lisa’s Cosmetics Sale Facebook followers that I would tell anyone, psst thank you Brenda Johnson & Jennifer Duern!! You know what’s good girls!
There are two parking lots, don’t hesitate to park in the second one even if the first isn’t full. This will allow you to leave sooner, with less cars following you with your bags to your car! But really, if you park in the second parking lot, when you leave you will most likely have more space to do so. And this sale will tire you out! Trust me, you will crave that quick exit like the candies you buy and decide they’re no longer a gift.
You can indeed get by with a little help from your friends at Lisa’s SALE! Holidays are better when spent together, and the gifts only give more when you can get your girl’s/moms/sisters/brothers/best friend’s opinion. Believe me or not, I truly have more fun at this sale when I bring my friends and can share the savings with those I love! <3
