Burberry has been in business for over a century and a half, selling luxury British fashions. Kate Middleton's patronage of the brand gives it a certain royal cachet, but for us commoners, it can be nice to save a few pounds on Burberry's fancy threads. Here's what you need to know!
When Does Burberry Offer Sales?
Burberry likes to keep customers guessing about when they may or may not see sales. Want to be the first to know? Sign up for its email list to get notifications about future sales and the release of new collections.
That said, while you can't always count on a given sale from Burberry, you can make some pretty good guesses. End-of-season sales are common, and Burberry sometimes offers sales around holidays such as Memorial Day or Labor Day.
What Discounts Can I Expect?
When Burberry does hold a sale, items are discounted on an item-by-item basis, rather than across categories. The max discount you're likely to find? 50% off. However, many items will bear smaller discounts in the range of 25% to 40%.
What Items Are Discounted?
Burberry carries three lines of clothing — their more casual Burberry Brit line, dressier Burberry London line, and fashion-forward Burberry Prorsum line (think runway). When Burberry holds a sale, the seasonal Prorsum items are most likely to receive discounts. The names of these clothing lines will disappear from labels by the end of 2016, but keeping them in mind will still help you guess whether or not to expect a discount on a particular item. In general, the trendier an item seems, the more likely it is to be discounted.
Pieces with more classic designs and wardrobe staples are rarely discounted heavily. In addition, items that bear the iconic "Burberry check" pattern are less likely to be discounted.
How Can I Save on Burberry Throughout the Year?
While Burberry's own sales are infrequent, other retailers frequently discount Burberry-brand items. While the selections may be more limited, the savings may be bigger.
FragranceX cuts up to 80% off Burberry fragrances, and stores like Rue La La, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Mr Porter frequently discount Burberry bags and apparel. Discounts of up to 50% off are relatively common, but sales occasionally offer discounts of up to 60% or 70% — prices you won't see direct from Burberry.
