Here are some worthwhile summer shopping tips that will surely help you pull through the financial crunch that is widely felt in the planet.

Summer Sales

July is a marked month in the calendar; also dubbed as a “Clearance Month” it is the period of time where retailers will tend to create room for the coming merchandise during the fall season, expect prices of the remaining stuffs to be slashed with gusto.

Department Stores

A good source of hard to resists bargain, most sale items are most of the time 40% to 70% off, which is indeed a real treat. If you’re not contented with what is on display you might find another department to find what is suited to you.

Specialty Stores

These stores specializes on some inches, if definite items is not your main target, you can do some buying spree especially the prices tagged in the items have markdowns that ranges from 50 to 70% off. Keep an eye on added price cuts that often surfaces in the mid month.

Price Stores

Every month of July, price stores offers items at lower prices compared with that of the department stores. Items that were 20 to 60% off retail have lower range from 40 to 60%.


If you opt for designer departments. Sale prices of merchandise may help you purchase clothes that you couldn’t afford when there is no markdown.

Give designer’s factory a try, here you could see styles not found in retail stores or styles that suits at discounted price.

Fall Sections

Specific items may have some markdowns for one or two days, but there are retail stores in all departments that offer price-cut all month. Fall Items will continue to move in from August to September, tag price of items at this period is moderate yet they are casual.


If you need small sizes shop as early as you can, for four to sixes are purchased fast and there could be no more replacement for them

See ads in local newspaper and to find out what stores have to offer. However if you have a store credit card with you take advantage of the preferred customer’s sales.


Swimsuits and swimming trunks are perennials hehehe.

Shorts, camp shirts, tees and tanks. It is wise to buy when they have markdowns for styles don’t easily change as months goes by.

Madras, stripes and solids such as white, navy, khaki, red and grey are sentimental favorites.

Footwear that are classic like canvas espadrilles, leather sandals and sneakers.


Neutrals like Navy is great when paired with white in summer or with camel in fall. Khaki’s will go well with lights for some humble earthy features.

Pastels are even nicer with dark colors.

The cream parchment jacket can form a great tandem with white or black during summer.

Cotton sweaters are very good all year-round.

Black is best for summer or winter, 24 hours a day.
