Call me an optimist, but I think Portland's late-blooming summers actually work to our advantage, at least in the retail department. While it's just now getting warm enough for camping trips out to the rivers and lakes, pool parties, and outdoor grillin' every night of the week, stores are starting to bail out their summer merch to make room for fall. That means if you haven't gotten around to getting a new swimsuit, summer dress, or sandals, it's super easy to avoid paying full price. Case in point is this weekend's Summer Sale in the Pearl District, where today through Sunday you can score merch from shops at up to 75% off. Click over to MOD for deets. Also, this:
