Blog: Happy New Year from just-style

Joe Ayling | 2 January 2008

It will soon be time to take down the Christmas tree and put our New Year's resolutions to the test.

There's also the matter of returning any unwanted or wrongly sized presents of course...

During my Christmas break I decided to brave the crowds and do a little sales shopping, and was pleasantly surprised because none of the stores I headed for, including H&M, JJB, Topman, River Island, Selfridges (the list goes on), were overly crowded the day after Boxing Day.

Indeed, besides insane 5am openings and the odd scrap over a discounted blouse, the whole nature of what was once called 'the January sales' in the UK has changed, with discounts beginning before Christmas and calming down for the New Year.

Here at just-style we are refreshed for the New Year, and wish all our readers a successful and enjoyable 2008.
