Sales Round-up

As we shift from winter to spring, the stores seem to be in a never ending cycle of sales. The Spring sales are actually a great time to pick up pieces that will see you through summer and into Autumn/Winter again so don't automatically think about grabbing the cheapest stuff you can find.

We already know Office have a sale on - think about picking up something that'll go with everything and last for more than one season. These Polyantha heels would be the ideal choice and at £30 instead of £60, a good basic buy.

In terms of clothes, we're told time and time again to pick up good quality basics that'll stay the distance. Isabella Oliver have recently launched a non maternity range called 365 and will be having an exclusive online sale from Thursday 23rd April until Monday 4th May. They have some really pretty and useful basics that, yes, are a bit more pricey than regular high street but will last. So in cost per wear terms, they work out very well indeed. My favourite is this maxi dress. It's made from jersey and is multiway making it incredibly versatile.

In slightly more affordable places, Dorothy Perkins are offering 20% off EVERYTHING for 3 days. I'll certainly be snapping up some boring ol' work clothes along with some of their super cute dresses.

ASOS and Oli also have fab sales on at the moment, with ASOS bandying around the magic 75% off. Back to the High Street and Oasis have a good sale going on as well.

There'll be more to come in the next few weeks as stores try to shift dead stock to make way for new summery temptaions so keep an eye out!
