As the hours of daylight get shorter each day, and the nights get just a little bit cooler, stores need to make way for their new autumn inventory – and that’s good news for shoppers! Take Talbots for example: about a month ago, they marked down their entire summer line and added an additional 30% off sale prices soon after. 30% turned into 40% off… and now the sale has deepened even further to an additional 50% off most clothing, and an additional 60% off shoes, accessories & dresses!
Honestly, the longer you wait, the better the sale will be. By mid August, the sale at Talbots can reach anywhere between 70-80% off the already marked-down prices – and they’ll still have plenty in stock to choose from! Unless you fall in love with an item, and it’s the last one left in your size – be patient!
I was not very patient, but I still got this great summer outfit that will take me into the beginning of autumn for UNDER $50! Even though it’s stylish, it’s not too trendy – these are classic items that I can bring back year after year! The shirt was 50% off the markdown at Talbots ($17.50 down from $39.50), the matching sneakers were 60% off the markdown at Talbots ($16 down from $79.50), and the chinos were 60% off the markdown at J.Crew ($16 down from $75)! I could have paid $194 for these three items, but I ended up saving 74%! I could have saved even more with the extra savings tip below –
Extra Savings Tip: If you have a Talbots charge card, you will save an additional 5% on top of all the other savings this weekend! Or if you open up a new card, you’ll get an even better deal – an additional 15% on top of all other savings! Be sure to sign up for a free rewards card too, so you can build up points toward rewards certificates with every purchase.
‘Till next time, be patient … and stay stylish!
