Most clothing items can be purchased on sale at some point during the year, especially on Black Friday and the day after Christmas. However, there are certain designers who rarely, if ever, approve a discount for their signature pieces. So, if you want a luxury pair of pumps or a fur coat for your once-in-a-lifetime trip to Paris, go ahead and pay up.
UGG footwear, the much-beloved Hermès Birkin bag, and Louis Vuitton handbags, luggage and eyewear go on sale so infrequently that it's almost impossible for retailers to remember the last time they saw these items on sale.
If you're a man feeling pressure to propose to your girlfriend, it's not smart to wait for high-end jewelry or diamonds to go on sale! Don't expect the retailer with the famous little blue boxes to hold a massive year-end sale and knock several thousand dollars off the ring your fiancée-to-be has her heart set on.
