*Clears her throat to sing*
“Happy Birthday to me… Happy Birthday to me.. Happy Birthday dear Lori…Happy Birthday to me!!!” Okay it’s not really my birthday but it kinda is. See twice a year All-Clad has what’s called their ‘Factory Sale’. This is all their stuff that they either have too much of, has been discontinued or deemed irregular. They come fully back with All-Clad’s warranty. Now the whole ‘irregular’ may cause concern but trust me, there is NO CONCERN! There may be a blemish – small scratch, logo off center, something that causes it for the big department stores to not want to sell it. In no way shape or form does it lack in quality or performance.
Each year this sale occurs in December and May/June. To me I tell everyone All-Clad has this sale at Christmas for me (and only me) to help Santa with getting me presents (hint to Mr.Fantabulous). And the May/June sale All-Clad has the sale again to help celebrate my birthday (May 21st). They do this for all of you wonderful folks to help in buying ME presents. See… they are just so truly thoughtful! What? No? They don’t do it because of me? Shhh… you believe what YOU want and *I’ll* believe what *I* want! haha
By now from on here, here, here, here, here and here, plus Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest you all know I have a deep love for All-Clad. More importantly I have respect for them and their superior product.

♥Things to know:
ο They accept cash and credit card (at least they did the last 15 times I’ve gone).
ο Bring a friend and a bag to carry all of your stuff!
ο There is no better day to go though if there is something you really want, it’s best to go on Friday morning as items sell out fast.
ο The past few times people started lining up pretty early (like 6am) but I go later in the afternoon and there is always a boat load of product left.
ο What is so awesome about this sale is that through out the entire 2-day sale, the wonderful folks of All-Clad keep replenishing the products.
ο If you buy more than your vehicle can fit (trust me, you will buy and buy and buy!) in the past they have offered UPS shipping.
ο The sale is in-person only; no online ordering. Take the trip and visit – Pittsburgh is GORGEOUS this time of year and it truly is a site to see!
ο The All-Clad employees that work at this event are SUPER nice and extremely helpful!
ο They have recently had a few shopping carts for people to use. If they are being used they do provide heavy boxes that you can either pull around or carry.
ο If this is your first time going, be prepared to be amazed!
ο There will easily be 150k-200k people that will flow through this event.
ο If you’re going and they have their 20 qrt stock pot.. leave it, it’s mine! I NEED it! *wink*
