Today (June 15) marks the day that most shops in the UK can finally reopen after months of closure due to coronavirus.

And while our high street shopping experience will look very different due to social distancing guidelines, it will at least be nice to actually see things before we buy them.

However, there is one thing that we haven’t missed about shopping, and that’s the sales.

Sifting through endless rails, the queues for the tills and the sense of urgency that buzzes around and creates a less than relaxing retail experience; no, we haven’t missed that at all.

Luckily then, we can stick to online shopping when it comes to the sales and there’s one in particular that we’re excited about: John Lewis’ up to 70% off sale.

Spanning a range of clothing and accessories across womenswear and menswear, whether you’re in the market for a slick new suit or a gorgeous summer dress, there’s something for everyone.

As always, we’ve gone through the digital rails and picked out the best bargains to be bagged right now.
