The Sales

The sales are in full swing at the moment and undoubtedly they are a great way to grab a bargain and for retailers the Autumn Winter deliveries are starting to arrive, so the decks need clearing a little! think before you buy that piece for a snip, surveys have found that sale purchases are the items which tend to hang in our wardrobes with the tags still attached- bargain or expensive mistake?

Here are our tips for navigating the sales:

  • The most important question to ask is, would you pay full price for the sales piece? If so, and it is marked down, what a bargain!
  • What are the gaps in your wardrobe? Think about what you need.
  • Look out for good quality wardrobe staples like well cut jeans, plain tees, trench coats, LBD's, and an investment leather jacket.
  • The pale peach ruffle dress is marked down 70%, but does the colour/ ruffles/ cut really suit you?


  • Do you have accessories to match the lime green and purple dress, if not you need to factor in the cost of buying these too.
  • Check the returns policy before you buy, the majority of retailers will not take back sales stock if you have a change of heart.
  • Ask the sales assistants for help in picking out key pieces, by this stage they will know the stock well and be able to select styles to suit.

Happy bargain hunting!
