    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...414597,00.html Summary "Surviving the January sales Lisa Armstrong Sales can be very good indeed for your health, your wardrobe's health and that of your bank account. Disregard unkind comments from (badly) dressed friends and family who accuse you of exhibiting nerdishness. Cashmere? Fitted or deconstructed? Fire-engine red or palest lemon? 1 Remind yourself that sales consist of items other people didn't want. 2 Ask yourself whether you'd even have looked ... if it didn't have £200 slashed off its original price. You can't buy style If you can beg, borrow and steal style "” which you can "” then, obviously, you can buy it. I'm not claiming that inside every Colleen McLoughlin (Wayne Rooney's label-devouring inamorata) lurks a Gwen Stefani, or that it would even be a desirable state of affairs if we all spent as much time dreaming up camera-friendly outfits as Stefani does. If you're a party-going rock chick, then a rhinestone-studded leather jacket may come in far, far more handy than a camel cashmere jumper. Buy in haste, repent at leisure The only time you can bend this rule is if another customer has her hands on the same item as you. What is life if it leaves no room for risk? The point is that if you do buy in haste, at least don't repent at leisure. Forget the high street. Make more lists and phone calls to save on wasted journeys. The good stuff never makes it into the sale"

    "The best stuff never makes it to the sale".Hah-To quote the English,"that's a load of bollocks".In my 30 years of shoppingexperience,sure,some of the good stuff gets sold at retail,but some of the very best stuff definitely makes it to the sale.Conservative,classic items may sell first,but does that mean they are the best?I don't think so. ;>
