I’m baaaack!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and that “Santa” was kind enough to bring you everything on your wish-list, however, if he missed a few things, fear not, sales are everywhere right now and it is a shopper’s paradise.

I for one have been scoping out the sales since the end of Christmas and though much has gone, more and more items appear marked down each week, which is good news for shoppers! I’m serious when I say that now is the time to indulge a little as we don’t know when shopping will be this good again!

Now is the time when I share with you the most worth-while sales going on now. Happy spending!

FCUK, Sisley, Bennetton, Women’s Secret, MaxMara: Can you believe that everything in these Calypso-owned stores is 50% off? When you’re used to looking a price tags that can hit $300 or more in these stores, 50% off makes a big difference. Cocktail dresses, business casual, jeans and accessories; you’ll find it all at exceptional prices at any of these fabulous stores.

In addition to 50% off, MaxMara is also having a pant and skirt sale on the bottom floor of Calypso. Skirts and pants in white are only $30 with other colours tagged at just $40. With prices this good, you can afford to splurge for a spring wardrobe!

Marks and Spencer’s: Although they started their sale right after Christmas, Marks and Spencer’s have added new items to their marked-down list each week. Enjoy everything from casual and comfortable to sophisticated and serious at 30-50% off regular prices. And if you don’t normally shop at Marks and Spencer’s, I can assure you, it is a treasure trove of good finds and one of my best-kept secrets.

LUSSO: This one deserves to be at the top of every fashionista’s list – I’ll say it once and once only: gorgeous handbags, wallets and shoes at Lusso are on sale at 50, 60 and 75% off! That’s right, Prada, Fendi, Miu Miu, Jimmy Choo, Furla and everything in between are going at prices that seem way to good to be true. Seriously, when has a sale ever made your heart skip a beat like this one?

The Body Shop: Sadly, The Body Shop Bermuda has decided to close its doors due to the tough economy and everything must go. All inventory is marked 60% off and it’s your last time to buy as tomorrow, January 21, is your last day to shop. To give you a little insight, I was in there the other day stocking up before the close and I purchased $200 worth of make-up for only $80!

Perry Footwear: Never strangers to a worth-while sale, Perry Footwear on the corner of Reid and Queen are drawing you into shoe heaven with 25-35% off. Whatever your shoe fancy, you’re taking a step in the right direction by taking advantage of this fabulous sale.

Gorham’s: Step away from the clothing and accessories and focus on gearing up for spring with discounts on gardening and outdoor living necessities at Gorham’s. You’d better hurry if you want to take advantage of their wide-range of marked-down goods, including grills, hoses, lawn mowers, and more, as the sale ends tomorrow, January 21.
