The Magic Four Letter Word

9:07:00 pm

You know the word I’m talking about, the very sound of which sets your heart racing, which sets the blood pumping in your veins, which sends the adrenaline soaring….yes, that’s the power in that magical word, which has been screaming out to us from billboards and signs across the country: SALE!!!!!!

That’s one of the reasons I loooovve the July-August and January-February months…practically all stores worth visiting have their end-of-season sale on!! Of course, all I see are the last four letters, I couldn’t care less if the season was beginning or ending! A sale is a sale is a SALE!!!

Okay, now that I’ve made my thoughts on that quite clear, let me give you an idea of the stores that I generally hit during the sales. These are where I usually find the best deals (and where I have access to in my city…these are the times when I wish I lived in Mumbai, sigh!!)

·         Westside
·         Lifestyle
·         Pantaloons
·         Catwalk
·         Reliance Footprint
·         Reebok
·         Fastrack
·         Oh heck…..forget the list, I pretty much go everywhere J

Well this time, the only stores I’ve been to so far are Mom&Me, CatMoss and Lilliput. Hmmm….not good, not good. As you can see, most of the hits were at the kiddie sales, so Cub got a new stash of stuff.

As for me, I just managed to get a glance at the Westside Sale. I got dragged out by Mr. Tiger ‘cause we had a train to catch (yes, I make use of every last minute ;-))
I just barely skimmed the surface, enviously eyeing all the other avid shoppers who had the sense to come with fellow shopaholics instead of husbands obsessed with catching trains.

However…. me being me, I didn’t leave empty handed. Oh no no, no way. Anyone who has seen the movie ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ will get my drift when I say, “Khandaani shopper hoon main, kuch to leke jaaoongi..…mwahahahaha!!”. So, here is the one thing I managed to lay my hands on, I guess I spotted it within that short span of time because it was the last piece of its kind left on the jewelry rack.

I have GOT to go and pay a detailed visit soonJ. What about you guys?? Did you find anything special during the sale? Do let me know!

    Wow, shooting star, we must be kindred spirits or something!!! Like you, I've also been strategizing for a while, been collecting pics of styles I'm inspired by and making lists of stuff I'm gonna need..didn't get a chance to try on the sizes yet, though :-( Plus, sale or no sale, fabindia is always on my list!!!

  3. How I miss those sales in India..I get such adrenaline rush every time I go out shopping and specially when I spot these gorgeous 'SALE' signs..:D And, yes, it is always better to go shopping with other shopaholic souls that with your better half ;)

  4. Really, the only sale that I visit is the Nordstrom Pre-Anniversary sale VIP event. That's only because it is Nordstrom. Otherwise, it's just good luck if I stumble across a sale. I don't actually look for them.
    It's just verrrryyyy good luck. :)
