Get in amongst it - John Lewis clearance

My favoured way of browsing the sales in from the sofa, one eye on the iPad, one eye on the TV. It makes me feel smug in the knowledge that I am doing such great bargain hunting from the comfort of my own home. So I was surprised when I visited my local branch of John Lewis to find so many sale items which weren't online - loads of them! I then spent some considerable time in the beauty hall, finding hundreds of sale gift sets from Christmas which, even when full-price, passed on some good savings. Those at Clarins and Lancome were the best, and I succumbed to a Clarins Vital Light gift set for just under £40.

Other bargains were on fragrance, L'Occitane gift sets and Mavala nail varnish gift sets. There were also some lovely knitwear accessories in the menswear department with a very unisex slant - the cashmere cable knit beanies were down from £40 to £15 and I must say, the cream one suited me rather well.

The womenswear department also had some tempting offers - particularly this cream silk shirt and the black above-the-knee silk dress by Temperley. Just shows that sometimes getting outside your comfort-zone can bring some real results!
