Time to Make the Most of the Paris Winter Sale

Time to Make the Most of the Paris Winter Sale










(PRWEB) January 19, 2011

With flights on sale, now is the time to make the most of the annual Soldes in Paris

This winter, forget about the hustle, bustle and mayhem of the January sales in packed shopping centres across rainy Britain. Instead, swap it for the hustle, bustle and mayhem of the Paris ‘Soldes’ – one of the most fashionable annual sales.

The Soldes, as the French call their sales, began this week on 12 January and they are the ideal pre-cursor to next week’s Paris Fashion Week (beginning on 20 January 2011), where all the latest trends will be showcased in a glitzy affair at the Carrousel du Lourve.

Getting there could be the biggest bargain you might find though, with Jet2.com currently putting their flights to Paris on sale.

Prices Slashed on Everything

Sales are state-regulated in France and the winter one is joined only by a similar summer Soldes. During the winter Soldes, which ends on Tuesday 15 February 2011, everything from department stores, boutiques and designer shops will be slashing prices on last year’s must-have fashionable garments. You’ll even find sales at hardware stores too, suggesting that even tools go out of fashion in Paris.

Whilst we are accustomed to major discounts as soon as the January sales begin in the UK, in Paris, price reductions take a more staggered approach. However, fashionistas will delight at discounts of up to 80% on leading fashion labels.

However, you’ll have to have your wits about you if you are to enjoy a successful and fruitful day at the Soldes.

Top Tips to Make the Most of the Sales

Surviving the Soldes is no easy feat. To come out with a few bargains is even better but, with the fashion glitterati in town ahead of the Paris Fashion Week, everyone wants a bit of the Soldes.

Make sure you arrive early and, if possible, do most of your bargain hunting during the week and in the mornings. The champagne hangovers normally keep many of the fashionistas in their hotels during the morning and as the locals go about their normal day, you can indulge in some space and time to browse through rail and rail of dazzling fashion garments.

You don’t need to dress to impress, just make sure what you wear leaves you feeling comfortable and loose – in case you have to make a mad dash for the last dress!

Head to the hotspots for some of the best deals, although expect to be joined by the savvy shoppers, experienced in this art form. Department stores like Galeries Lafayette or Le Bon Marché, to small, up-and-coming boutiques or discount designer shops around Les Halles or the Marais district are ideal for some great deals.

Remember to enjoy the architecture and beauty of Paris whilst you’re there to really get the most out of your biggest bargain – your cheap flight.

Jet2.com’s flight sale has some very fashionable prices with a flight to Paris starting from £9.99 one way, including taxes for anyone flying to the French and fashion capital.
