Sales Schedules - When to Shop for Clothes to Save Big

Updated on May 7, 2007

Thanks Google Images!

I try to never pay full price for clothing. I have found that everything goes on sale at some point, so I try really hard to wait for the sales. It takes planning, but by knowing the sales schedules, I can shop for clothes knowing I am getting great deals.

In January, there are of course the post-holiday sales, which are always great. However January is typically when stores have white sales (linens and towels). Winter apparel and accessories also go on sale during January. February will bring deeper discounts on winter apparel, so that the stores can make room for the spring items coming in.

In March spring apparel and accessories are usually on sale. April brings more sales on spring apparel as well as clearance sales of winter coats, hats and mittens. May brings another white sale.

In the month of June summer apparel and accessories go on sale. In July sportswear is usually on sale. August brings another white sale, as well as discounts on bathing suits. September brings "Back to School" sales on all sorts of apparel. You will also find deep discounts on summer apparel.

October will bring sales on fall apparel. In November you will find winter apparel and accessories on sale. Fall apparel will be going on clearance. December will bring larger discounts on fall apparel as well as sales on holiday attire.

When shopping for clothing, planning ahead is the key to saving the most money. This usually means never buying anything in season. Buy your winter clothes in May and your summer clothes in November. This can be tricky at times with children, because you never know how fast they will grow, but for adults this should be fairly easy to do.

You should also take advantage of holiday sales. Presidents Day sales are usually a great time to purchase winter clothing. Memorial Day is a great time to purchase spring items. Labor Day you will find great sales on summer apparel. After Thanksgiving Day sales will give you even greater deals on fall apparel. Combining the usual holiday sales with the regular sales schedule will give you an even bigger discount on clothing.

By following the above sales schedule and purchasing items off season, I rarely have to pay full price for clothing. This has saved me hundreds, if not thousands of dollars over the years, and hopefully it will save you money as well.

      Manolo ugg boots says, the Manolo has had the family emergency this week, and so he is presenting to you this ugg boots classic Express of the Washington Post column from more than two years ago. Please enjoy.

      Dear Manolo,

      I just woke up this morning and realized that I’m middle aged. Can you recommend something that will make me feel young again, without seeming too ridiculous?

      Your devoted fan,


      Manolo says, the Manolo has ugg boots only the two words…Kork-Ease!

      Yes, now you are firmly in the age of the middle, with the teenaged kids and the mortgage, but put the Kork-Ease upon your feets and suddenly you are transported back to your youthful triumph as the unofficial “Disco Queen of Topeka, Kansas”, when you and the very hot Bob Beiderman tore up the dance floor with your original interpretation of the Hustle.

      Oh how cheap ugg boots the Bob, he could shake his groove thing!

      Yes, now he is the balding John Deere salesman with the pot belly and the Buick Riviera, but then he was the hottest young stud to ever put on the white polyester pants, the shiny black shirt and the gold chains. Why the hair...

      Who killed Laura Palmer?In 1990, I was totally obsessed with David Lynch&#8217;s show Twin Peaks.

      this all makes sense....for regions that actually get all 4 seasons. i live in central texas where items like flip flops, shorts, short sleeved shirts, etc are available all year round. stores around here rarely sell items that are truly season specific. yes, they have hoodies and the occasional coat, but do you have any tips for someone down south and when our sales would run??

      A wonderful hub! I hate to pay full price as well... I find that clearances at Macy's can be especially great, for dresses in particular!
