We don’t know about you, but shopping in Harrods is usually just a teeny bit out of our price range. But that’s why we’re so damn excited about the start of their summer sale, which kicks off tomorrow (Sat Jun 28) at 8am and sees selected fashion, accessories, beauty products and homewares reduced by up to 50 percent.
And it’s not just the bargain-basement prices (ok, bargain-ish prices) that we’re looking forward to: being one of the world’s most famous and most high-end stores, Harrods doesn’t just reel out the dregs-filled rails and red markers pens for their sale, oh no. In true ‘Harrodian’ style (their words), the shop is throwing a Summer Sale Garden Party, for which fresh lawn will be laid (in Hans Crescent, the street running alongside the store) and a string quartet will perform live. Weary shoppers will be able to relax in the tranquil space and be treated to cold refreshments and snacks. If sore feet aren’t the issue, visit the pop-up garden’s digital photo booth instead, where customers can don their new purchases and instantly share sale selfies. #doesmybumlookbiginthis?
In store, Harrods Sale Hosts will be handing out sweets and bottles of water, making sure no one literally shops till they drop.
Harrods, 87-135 Brompton Rd, SW1X 7QN. Sale begins Sat Jun 28 from 8am.
