It’s that time of year again! The Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival is this weekend May 3rd - 6th! 
Colie’s will be kicking off our Annual Sidewalk Sale a day early! ( Say what! ) Yeah girl you heard it! Instead of having to deal with street closures and crowds, you’ll be able to leisurely shop Thursday May 3rd!

THERE WILL BE NO PARKING WITHIN THESE AREAS AFTER 1PM ON FRIDAY, MAY 4, 2018 in order to allow the vendors to set up .... Violators may be towed”

Colie’s will be CLOSED Sunday May 6th through Tuesday May 8th. We will resume normal hours Wednesday May 9th 12-6



  • This sales is typically very crowded which is one of the reasons we are starting a day early. Hopefully this will disperse the crowd over 3 days! 
  • We have ONE dressing room. Please be patient while others are trying on items. 
  • There will be a FIVE ITEM limit on the dressing room.
  • We highly suggest wearing a tank & leggings/biker shorts so that in the event the dressing room line gets long you can try items on anyhow! We have no problem with you trying items on outside the dressing room!  
  • Sale items will be marked with a sale tag. The sale tag will have the percentage the item is discounted listed and that discount will be taken off the original price at checkout. If a tag says $39.99 and 50% off, the item would be $19.99. 
  • There will be designated racks with sale items. You will know it’s a sale rack because there will be a sign on it labeling it as such. NOTE : things get put back in the wrong place this is why sale items have sale tags. If you find an item on the sale rack with no sale tag it is most likely NOT a sale item. I try to keep the racks organized but when it gets crowded it’s impossible. We will not be discounting an item because it is on the wrong rack. 
  • All sale items are FINAL SALE. There will be no exceptions. No exchanges, no shop credit. Discounts can not be applied to previous purchases. Discount can not be combined with other sales, specials, coupons, or discounts.
