OK so that sale was nothing special. If you need some basic tops, sure...but you can live without it.

I think this is just the beginning. From what I hear other retailers also marked down some items yesterday/today but it's not the actual sale yet. Also the online shops started the sales already (e.g. topshop,asos).

Maybe they want to make it easier for the staff members so they won't have to work all night before the shops open on the 26th/27th.

Give me a heads up when the -50% markdown kicks in

^They already are. Half the store was 50% off - the boring part of the store unfortunately

Well, I hope it won't be as bad as it sounds

I wanted to get a coat at cos... I've been looking for one with clean lines, preferably collarless, without any ladylike details for months now.

I hate that they don't feature the more colorful selection of their range on the website...

I have to say that this was the first time, that I was truly disappointed regarding of the sale. The reduction was little with just 30% for most of the pieces, especially the outerwear, and in comparision with previous sale events just a little amount of the winter collection was reduced. I used to buy bags full of clothing but this time I hardly find anything useful though I love the winter collection!

I went to a Cos store in Berlin yesterday and I was so impressed! I got this gorgeous rouched black pencil dress reduced by 50% from 49 euro and a beautiful dress coat with a slight sparkle through it reduced by 50% again to 75 euro! Both classic items you need in your wardrobe! I find the quality of Cos so good as well. Definitely better value than anything I'd ever find in Melbourne.

It seems to me the sales only get good after two weeks (read: towards the end). I've always been able to score really amazing finds at the sales, and I remember having this exact same complaint during the summer only to be told that they save the best discounts for the end. Hope it's still true, though; for a store that is generally on the Zara price range it seems to me their prices have gone through the roof this last year...

COS has always been more expensive than Zara, at least in DK, but who cares. The quality just cannot be compared to Zara, everything from Zara either looks cheap in person or falls apart.

Agree, COS was always pricier than Zara but for me this year their prices seems to be increased as well. As long as the quality is still fine, I can live with it.
