dorothy_perkins_sale.pngWhen a shop slashes its prices down by 30% or more, even the stingiest shoppers tend to sit up and take notice. So here's a juicy deal for you to take advantage of in advance of the Jubilee weekend: Dorothy Perkins have reduced all their stock by the magic 30% between now and Friday - just in time for your to get your party outfit perfected. The reduction applies both in store and online.

Lower prices always tend to mean more fun purchases in my world, so I'm considering going for something a bit more OTT than I normally would (it is the Queen's birthday after all). I quite fancy these cream corsage sandals £31 reduced from £45, which would be the icing on the cake for any girly party outfit, giving a slightly 1950s-glam note to you look. You can't beat a cute platform Mary Jane - especially not when it's been reduced to such a tempting price.

If pin-up chic is not your style, check you what else has been reduced including some rather nice and suitably English-looking two-tone brogues for just £17.50, and a cool and sultry snake-strap sandal for £9.10. Very 2012 and great for the warm weather!

Be sure to get in quick to be spruced up and ready for the Queen!
