The Early Bird Catches the Cool Clothes

Zara is having their semi-annual sale right now. There is a quirk in their manufacturing/selling cycle that is hugely to your advantage, if you’re prepared to buy for fall and winter right now. Zara’s manufacturing turnaround time is two weeks (that’s two weeks from sketch to factory to stores). Everything but roughly the last two weeks’ worth of items is currently marked down.  That means lots of pre-fall and fall items are on sale, like this great quilted jacket.

Think of it as an early Christmas present to yourself.
