Robinsons Red Hot Sale
Imagine my excitement when I was invited to get first dibs for the Robinsons Red Hot Sale! As someone who loves shopping during sale season, I was ecstatic! Some shops were slashing 70% off their prices, while others were offering buy 1 take 1 promos!
To give you a glimpse of what you'll find, I documented my day of searching for the best sale finds at Robinsons Galleria. Click the button below to see the photos.
The Robinsons Malls Red Hot Sale is a mall-wide sale that runs for the whole month of August. See poster for the complete list of participating malls.
First stop: Warehouse! I always buy dresses from Warehouse especially when they're on sale. Usually, I wait until they're 70% off for me to get the biggest discounts -- dresses from P3000 - P4000 become just a little over P1000! What great deals!
Next is Karimadon. They only have one rack for sale items and some pieces are not available in all sizes. But there are some good ones if you keep your eyes peeled! I chose this ombre dress with an asymmetrical hemline because I don't have anything in my closet that looks like it! The color was eye-catching and the hemline added a nice touch.
It's great that Payless is also on sale! I used to have a hard time looking for shoe stores that have my size. I'm a size 9 in the US, but in the Philippines (and other Asian countries) I sometimes become a size 10, or even an 11. Apparently, Asians have smaller feet lol. It was like a dream come true when Payless arrived in the Philippines! The shoes are categorized by size and it's so much easier now to look for footwear! No need to buy my shoes abroad!
There were so many items at the Robinsons Department Store, I got a bit overwhelmed. They have almost everything -- it's a one-stop shop for clothes! I think everyone who's on a budget should check it out!
Dorothy Perkins also has some nice sale items, just like this black and (light) pink dress! My sister, who happens to love the color black, loved it!
And finally, Topshop! This was where I stayed the longest! They're currently offering a buy 1 take 1 promo on their sale items! So technically, the value of these items were only half-price because of the buy 1 take 1! YAY!
Can you guess which of the following swimwear I bought?
No time to shop this August? Not to worry, you can win GCs at the comfort of your homes (or offices) and use them when you're no longer busy! Robinsons Malls is running a contest on Instagram where you have to repost the poster above with the hashtag #RobinsonsRedHotSale, tag 5 of your friends, and get a chance to win P1000 worth of Robinsons gift certificates!
Shoppers can also get freebies for a minimum purchase of P1000 at participating malls!
Special thanks to my sister Via who went with me to the sale and took all the photos for this post!
