For Zara lovers alike, the notorious Zara Semi-Annual Sale feels like the equivalent of Christmas in June. It’s the perfect opportunity for bargain shoppers to ball on a budget and stock up on their favorite Zara picks. However, details about the sale are always kept under tight wraps until right before, so avid shoppers never know when to expect deals.

Zara’s Spring Semi Annual Sale

Zara finally announced the date for their Spring Semi-Annual Sale.  In their newsletter that was just sent out to loyal fans, they said the Zara Semi-Annual Sale will start TONIGHT, June 20 at 10 p.m. online. If you’re an online shopper, you’ll be able to score merchandise at a discount before in-store shoppers by taking advantage of the website’s deals. But if you prefer to shop in store, Zara’s Semi-Annual Sale in-store then you will have access to it Thursday, June 21 at all U.S. stores.

The notorious sale happens twice a year: spring/summer and fall/winter. This timing allows customers to shop the latest merchandise for each season at amazing prices. Zara’s spring/summer Semi-Annual Sale always takes place around June, meaning we’re not far off! While the exact date of the sale is unknown–and the brand is keeping their lips sealed–it will be any day now! As veteran Zara Semi-Annual Sale shoppers, we have a few tips and tricks for how to take advantage of the deals and prepare yourself for what to buy when the date finally rolls around.

1. You Can Shop Online & In-Stores:

The Zara Semi-Annual Sale rocks because you can get the same deals both in-stores and online. This is a feature that not many sales these days can boast. Did you find the off-the-shoulder top of your dreams in the store but don’t see your size, no problem! Check online and cross your fingers that they have it in stock there. As a new feature, if you see something in the store that is to die for but it’s not available your size, most locations can order it online for you (and with free shipping).

Our tip: if you don’t mind online shopping, make that your go-to Zara Semi-Annual Sale destination. The stores tend to turn into a madhouse come sale time and the lines for the dressing room and check out can be unreal. Shopping online also shows you how the clothes look on a model, so you’re not at a loss in terms of how to style them.

When I went in person to the Zara Semi-Annual Sale, I waited a good 20 minutes in line for the dressing room, excited to try on my new fashion find. I spent probably five minutes trying to figure out where to put my arms and how to situate the excess fabric, only to give up after I looked like a kindergartner swallowed up in one of her big sister’s crop tops. But after looking online and seeing how it actually should look, I regret not buying it. Learn from my mistake–shop online, people.

2. Take Advantage Of The Newsletter

Zara’s email newsletters is the best way to stay in the know. It will give you a heads up that the sale is about to drop before anyone else hears about it. A few hours of shopping time before it becomes general public knowledge is KEY to scoring the best deals. Unfortunately, this is the only advance Zara gives for the sale, which gives you limited time to mentally prepare and brace your bank account. But, it’s better to know a little bit ahead of time than have it come as a complete surprise.

The sale usually starts online at 12 a.m. EST, so you can get a head start and scope out your favorite pieces before the physical stores open a few hours later. Finding out about the sale early from the newsletter also gives you first dibs on the best inventory and size selections. But don’t stress out if you can’t shop the sale ASAP—it usually lasts for a few weeks.

The newsletter won’t overwhelm your inbox, so stay subscribed if only to know when the next sale pops up, which should be in late December.

3. Download The App

If you have a Zara shopping addiction, downloading the app could potentially be a dangerous decision. It makes shopping that much easier. Shoppers can buy clothes directly from the app and save their information to waste no time when it come to ordering and checking out with your favorite clothing items and accessories. Another nice feature of the app is it sends notifications when items restock and or events are about to start

4. Shop The Full Inventory

The sale can overwhelm even the savviest shoppers, but spend time looking at everything. You never know, you could find a must-have jacket stuffed in a rack of clothes, or a leather skirt you never knew you needed online. If you shop in the store, leave no square untouched. Online, search every category. It will be worth it!
