:confused1::confused1:
When I was checking for summer sale and couldn’t find one, I thought that maybe I have missed it, or confused the dates. But also I couldn’t help, but a very bad feeling kept on growing in me in the light of recent years price increase..
This Christmas I went on line and my worst fears were confirmed.. Burberry Christmas sale was not there any more:amazed:
So is it really true? Has it gone, gone? Is it never going to happen?? I mean ever?:confused1::confused1::confused1:

Any one getting the feeling that luxury brands are getting out of hand? Fewer sales and while I understand prices go up, we have seen some very big price increases in one go…..


And yes I am well aware of the challenges for all businesses over the last two years.

I think it depends on how much they have left in their inventory.

I’m in the US and Burberry did have a private sale in-stores only around November. However it was mostly RTW. There were some SLGs and bags here and there but not as much as I remember in previous years.

Dior kind of does it based on inventory, they had a sale around late spring/early summer, a lot of shoes and RTW. However in December 2021, they had no sale at all (at least not in my location).

I was also once told that inventory varies by location and transfer of items depends on location policy. May want to check with a Burberry SA/CA at your location?

Little to no sales and proper stock level management is much better off from both an environmental and business standpoint.

I have never been on Burberry sale, is it open for public? How much discount can you get? Any examples? Are there classic trench coats

Burberry does have sales in-store, but they hide the sale items in a back room. The sale should be over in Canada already, but around Black Friday, a friend of mine walked into the Yorkdale Burberry store and asked if anything was on sale, and was led to the back room where the pieces were 30% off. My brother had the same experience at the end of June this year at the Bloor Burberry flagship.

My Burberry SA said it was a private sale only. And it seems to be up to the discretion of the SA who gets to know.
When my husband and I were there and my SA told us, we were led to closet of the the private room in the back and we were literally the only people there. :whut: (Pre-pandemic it was not like this, I definitely recall at least a handful of people at the sale and it later went public 1-2 weeks later)

The selection was limited (especially in sizing) but like @Christofle said, ~65% off most items (I think bags were around 50% off in my location) My husband got a bomber jacket and I got a tuxedo blazer and wow, it was an incredible discount! :eek:

Edit: oh sorry, about the classic trench coats, no, none of those were on sale. But there were definitely some very classic-looking trench coats that were very nice. If I lived in a colder climate I would have definitely considered getting one haha.
