I've been getting a lot of google hits with key words including The Body Shop Semi-Annual sale and when it generally is. Thanks to Fee for this fab idea and by the way, can I say how obsessed I am with checking my blogger stats? I love them.
I've been a TBS shopper for quite a few years now and I've almost always taken advantage of their semi-annual sales. While the prices aren't outrageous to begin with, the sales make an excellent time to stock up on your favorites, holiday and birthday gifts without breaking the bank.
Since I'm an e-mail pack rat, I can give you a synopsis of when the sales usually are.There is generally one sale in the summer and one in the winter. The summer one is generally a mishmash and I've found it's a little less extensive than the winter one, where you can get all the holiday sets that come out at a major reduction.
The summer sale generally starts in mid-June and runs till mid-July or when stock runs out.
The winter sale generally starts just before Christmas (e-mails indicates Dec 17, 25 and 28th in years past)
There is generally more makeup involved in the winter sale and select items usually get reduced to 3 for $10 with possible further reductions as the sale goes on (I've seen as low as 5 for $10 towards the end).
Gift sets are often reduced up to 75% towards the end of the sale as well (early January generally speaking or until stock depletes enough to justify an additional reduction).
There are almost always excellent deals right off of items with little back stock and they go very fast. Usually when the sale starts these items will sell off within the first day of the sale (especially online).
I hope this was helpful and if you have any additional comments or questions, please leave them in the comments below.
The minute I know about this year's winter sale, you guys will be the first to know!
wow, I rhyme
