It's that time of year again. After the stressful and exhausting lead up to Christmas and the joyful aftermath that follows, the Boxing Day sales kick off with a whole host of festive bargains!
With many high street stores such as H&M
, French Connection
and Whistles starting their sales before Christmas, this year looks sure to be big in regard to the amazing discounts on offer. And after the success of the Black Friday sales last month and the huge amount of money spent by consumers, this Christmas looks sure to be a dogfight for the best prices out there.
River Island have just launched their online sale, marking down much of their autumn stock to below the £30 mark while Boohoo.com
has a fantastic range of clothing in their clearance sale, with many sizes still available. For the best bargains, you've got to get shopping fast, with the popular 10,12 and 14 sizes selling out almost immediately. Topshop
have also begun their sales early, marking down lots of cute, preppy dresses and stylish jewellery from their Freedom by Topshop range as have House of Fraser with a few selected items, but expect more pieces to follow after the first couple of days.
However, for most of the big department stores and main high street retailers, you'll have to wait for Boxing Day to start shopping. Debenhams, John Lewis, Harrods and Selfridges start their sales bright and early on the 26th December which is bound to cause a desperate scurry amongst excited bargain hunters as the doors open as do Zara
, who never go on sale before the 25th. Expect lots of beautiful classic pieces such as skirts, coats and dresses to be reduced to amazing prices, as well as their practical and stylish leather bags - a staple of the brand.
The Next sale is also a hot favourite, with stores up and down the country opening at 7.00am sharp to make way for the hundreds of hungry shoppers. With mens, womens, kids and homewear all discounted it's easy to see why Next is so popular when it comes to their sales. If it's not fashion you're after, everything from toys, gadgets and phones to sofas and holidays will be discounted considerably so make sure you're ready to shop the Boxing Day sales in style!
