L.a Eyeworks annual sale starts Jan. 26

LaeyeworkssaleIt's a sale that's been known to draw hundreds of customers who are on the hunt for affordable statement-making eye wear. L.a Eyeworks' annual sale knocks a selection from the brand's sunglasses frames down 30% to 70% off the original price, and it runs Thursday through Saturday.

The event has been known to attract a sizable crowd, often with a line snaking out the front door. But when $300 frames are going for under $100, it's no wonder people are snapping up several pairs of colorful or funky frames to add to their growing eye wear collection.

Their optical frames and prescription sunglasses are on sale, too, starting Monday through Feb. 4.

L.a Eyeworks' annual sale is at their 7386 Beverly Blvd. location only; (323) 931-7795
