Our 50 Sale is underway! For the month of July, you will find dressy and dressy casual items half off throughout the entire store. This includes, designer suits, sport coats, slacks, dress shirts, polo shirts, dressy t-shirts and many more items!
But even while we love to tell you all the wonderful designers we have on sale, at the same time we always strive to educate and empower our clients. So we want you to pause before you purchase, and learn how to be a savvy sales shopper.
Special promotions can be a great opportunity to purchase things you need. But no matter how good the special offer, you are wasting your time and money if you aren’t approaching the sale with the right mindset.
Guidance in this area all boils down to one cardinal rule. Don’t buy a garment item just because it is on sale.
Let’s say you need a new sports coat. You can find a sport coat on a sale at a number of places, with so many options that you are getting overwhelmed by the choices! You’re afraid you will make the wrong decision.
So you decide to use price as your guide. If you go wrong, at least you got a good “deal” to compensate for making an otherwise poor choice.
Despite this, you still buy it because it is cheap. And that is what you end up with- cheap clothing! Over time, you add more and more items like this to your wardrobe. Put them together, and you’ve spent a fair amount of money- more than you would have to just buy one quality piece.
You probably never wear these garments, and they are cluttering up your closet. So how wise was your investment? You could have bought one high quality item (whether on sale or not) and gotten a lot of use out of it (and a lot of compliments!).
Buying at the end of the season can afford you some tremendous value. But that is what it should be all about- value. Everything we do is based on building value for our clients.
So ask yourself, “Would I pay full price for this item?” Is it worth it? That is the line between finding a great value and getting a cheap deal.
At Davelle, everything we carry is from top designers featuring quality fabrics and materials, excellent construction and exceptional cut and style. So you don’t ever have to worry about the quality. But still ask yourself, “Would I still buy this if it weren’t on sale?”
That way you can ensure it is the right style and fit for you. Not sure? As always, our expert wardrobe consultants will guide you through every step of the process.
