Nothing to post yet but hoping for inspiration from others.....
I'm after a down filled coat and a fair isle knit.
Would love to see everyone's sale purchases!

Topshop black fitted tux jacket reduced from £60 to £40
Clarks black suede studded heels reduced from £70 to £30
Boden animal print top reduced from £35 to £18

I'm hoping for a fair isle jumper too. Have my eye on a grey gap one but hoping for a bigger reduction.

Long black dress from kaliko at john lewis - reduced from £120-ish to £35. Hope it fits smile

I bought this whilst waiting for everyone to get up yesterday morning. Then couldnt make up my mind so ordered this and this.

Cannot keep the all so 1 or 2 will be going back - I swear they will, even when they turn up and I love them all and persuade myself I deserve them like last christmas and the credit card bill im still paying off.

Had wanted to get some nice jewellery in the sales but found the bracelet I liked on debenhams for £228 reduced from £286. While bored I googled the name of the company and found a little jewellerys near me who sell the same bracelet for £125 but there not open now till 5th jan so will have to wait smile

All Saints Leather Jacket £499 down to £239 & better still it's a birthday present so I didn't pay.

Feeling very happy grin

All of my sale shopping has so far been online.

I have ordered 3 coats for myself:
Boden short rainy day mac reduced from £110 to £49
Boden rainy day mac reduced from £119 to £65
Seasalt 3 in 1 jacket in Next reduced from £150 to £50
Only one of these will be kept though (and my DM is paying for it as my Christmas present). I think I will be keeping the Boden short one.

Levi's Demi Curve slim jeans reduced from £90 to £45

Clarks ox blood patent ballet pumps reduced from £30 to £20

Pretty much everything else I've bought so far is for the DC.

I have my eye on a pair of Russell and Bromley ankle boots, but no idea if they are in the sale or when I can get to the shops. Sale is not online.

SqueezyCheeseWeasel Fri 26-Dec-14 10:43:43

Viv Westwood wool coat and some Eton shirts for DH.

goodasitgets Fri 26-Dec-14 10:47:36

I did my standard lush Boxing Day run this morning grin
50% off Christmas stuff, grabbed bath bombs mainly but pleased that my cleanser was in the sale (2 bottles) and the rose jam shower gel

This, and
this, from Zara. I saw them ages ago but never got a chance to try them on. I'm surprise at the big discount on the jacket so I'm wondering if there's something not good about it.

TheHappinessTrap Fri 26-Dec-14 10:55:05

Oh good, tons from seasalt, clarks and orla kiely. Hoping I will not want it all and some of it will go back!

mowglik Fri 26-Dec-14 11:34:42

Off shopping now managed to convince DH to brave the sales thoigh he is moaning next to me right now lol

Going to get basic layering tops and couple cashmere jumpers from uniqlo or zara, warm hat from somewhere, boyfriend jeans from boss, silk pillow and duvet from white company and going to check out mint velvet. Made a list so we can be in and out to minimise DH moaning fgrin

Romcom Fri 26-Dec-14 14:30:06

Love that top lurking around shame it's sold out in my size...

Bellebelle Fri 26-Dec-14 14:47:24

lurkingaround I'd forgotten about Zara until I read your post, just bought a black wool cape I'd wanted pre-Christmas with £30 off smile from the website.

I've also bought two jumpers from Whistles online and two pairs of Sophia Webster shoes from Net-a-Porter which are all still to arrive - also assuring myself that I won't keep everything...

goodasitgets I didn't realise that Lush did a sale, might have braved the shops for that this morning if I'd known - next year!

lurkingaround Fri 26-Dec-14 15:00:40

I hope it's as nice irl Romcom.
They do a black polyester version here. I was tempted to order, thought it'd be good for going out. But I blinked and bam! it was gone in my size.

mowglik Fri 26-Dec-14 16:16:43

Back from shopping and got an all saints sweater and a dress only the dress was on sale, Coast shrug again not on sale and a couple of jumpers from mint velvet only 1 on sale. The best stuff still seemed to be full price :/

goodasitgets Fri 26-Dec-14 17:42:19

They do 50% off all christmas products and other stuff made before a certain date wink

SqueezyCheeseWeasel Fri 26-Dec-14 17:47:44

Just got a couple of online bits from the Space NK sale.

msfreud Fri 26-Dec-14 18:22:22

I've only done online sales this year:

White Stuff - a couple of tops and a tea towel
Boden - Skye scarf
Seasalt - top and skirt
John Lewis - an apron with a squirrel print and two pairs of stripy socks
Hush - honeycomb print PJ bottoms
Plumo - cat shaped slippers

I think I'm almost done now... although still undecided about a cardi from Pure Collection, it's sitting in my basket...

chickydoo Fri 26-Dec-14 18:30:42

Ordered early this am at space NK
Saved a fortune.

BumWad Fri 26-Dec-14 18:33:59

What did you all it from Space NK?

SqueezyCheeseWeasel Fri 26-Dec-14 19:26:14

bumwad - I got a scented candle and a Laura Mercier bodycare set.

SqueezyCheeseWeasel Fri 26-Dec-14 19:30:18

Also just splurged on Emma Bridgewater.

SqueezyCheeseWeasel Fri 26-Dec-14 19:31:10

damn PayPal. It's too easy.

Xmas2014SantaC1555 Fri 26-Dec-14 20:21:31

I got an Origins Mask Marvels set from Boots today - £50 reduced to £20. It contains three different face masks so hopefully they will work a miracle on me.

I also ordered these boots from Clarks - I tried a 6 and a 7 instore but neither fit so I have taken a punt and ordered a 6.5 from the website. I will be gutted if they don't fit.
