The last few days didn’t just see the start of Wimbledon, but also the start of the Robinsons summer sale. If you have visited us in store, you’ll know that our summer sale is in full swing with upto 50% off original prices on designer brands including Mulberry, Michael Kors, Versace, Armani, Boutique Moschino, Ralph Lauren and more.
With so many great pieces still available in the Robinsons summer sale, we wanted to share our tips for savvy sales shopping.
NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY THAT INVESTMENT PIECE…
If you have had your head turned and heart taken by the butter soft leather of a Mulberry or Michael Kors handbag, this is the time to invest for less. The beauty of handbag shopping in the sales is that classic styles are just as likely to be sporting those red tags as more trend-led pieces, so there is a good chance that the handbag you have had your eye on is on sale now at Robinsons. Plus, there’s nothing as gratifying as working out the cost-per-wear of a sales steal that you will probably use every week for years on end.
…BUT YOU CAN ALSO ENJOY INSTANT GRATIFICATION WITHOUT THE GUILT
Is there anything more thrilling than spotting this season’s top trend on sale? The summer sales are our favourite time to impulse buy, especially for those seasonal trends that you’d like to get on board with without splashing too much cash. The beauty of the summer sales is that they fall right before holiday season, so you can snap up those loose summer shirts, like the ESCADA Rope Neck Tie Blouse and beach-ready bags like the striped linen and leather Michael Kors number in time for departure day. And we all know that nothing makes us happier than a new holiday wardrobe.
KEEP EYES PEELED FOR THE CLASSICS
The fashion editors will tell you that, as much as snapping up seasonal trends for less is seriously satisfying, it is scooping a future wardrobe classic that leaves us really smug when it comes to sales shopping. This MaxMara San Remo Linen Dress is available in two versions and this is one of those special occasions on which it is perfectly acceptable to buy both. The Vanilla version is a simple, short shift dress that will become your go-to for summers in the office, whilst Vanilla Sparkle is scattered with tiny, subtle soft gold sequins and is screaming out to be worn with tanned skin and sandals for balmy evenings on the Italian Riviera. The beautifully cut style – with pockets – will last you years.
