Zara’s much-anticipated summer sale won’t be here for a couple more weeks. (We don’t have the deets, but the sale doesn’t usually drop until mid-June.) But Zara’s special prices feature has given us an unexpected gift: Several Zara spring 2019 pieces. On sale. Right now. Avid shoppers know that Zara’s spring 2019 collection was seriously stacked with great finds, and now that it’s June, it makes sense that some of these must-have pieces would already be marked-down. We just…weren’t expecting the retailer to dole out any deals just yet? (Don’t get it twisted—we’re not complaining. We’re just shocked that Zara would be so generous in advance of one of the biggest sale events of the season.)
Here’s the deal: Most retailers list a sale section on their websites, but Zara usually doesn’t—unless one of its massive semi-annual sales is taking place, that is. But as Zara die-hards probably know, if you navigate to Zara’s sidebar menu and click “woman,” an entirely different menu will pop up. This one is sorted by clothing sub-genre and includes a notable two-word item (often written in hot pink): “special prices.” These are deals you can score even when a big ol’ sale isn’t taking place.
The only issue with this feature is that you can’t see what the original price of the items were—so if you pride yourself on maximizing discounts, you’re kind of out of luck. But you can rest assured knowing that some kind of discount has been applied, so all the pieces you’re perusing are marked-down from their original prices.
The pieces on offer in Zara’s current “special prices” section include chic basics more fit for spring than summer (though you could definitely make a case for sporting some of these over the next few months). Puff-sleeve floral rompers, suede trench coats and navy croc-effect booties are just waiting to be snatched up—and now’s the perfect time to do so. The site-wide summer sale probably won’t be here for a little while longer, so while the discounts aren’t as deep as they’re going to get, the shopping process is way less competitive. (You probably won’t have to worry about someone snapping up the satin dress in your cart while you’re typing out your credit card info.)
In other words, deals abound—without the stress of a standard sale. So take advantage. Satiate your sartorial sweet tooth while things are still relatively calm. Your closet, your budget and frankly, your peace of mind will simultaneously thank you.
