In France the sales ("Les Soldes") are regulated by the government and happen only twice each year. Yesterday marked the first day of an almost month-long country-wide sale...hip hip hooray! Nine years ago we hit Paris in early January and boy, did we find some wonderful deals. But, guess what? You don't have to visit France to take advantage of these semi-annual sales, you can enjoy them online too.
One of my favorite French retailers for children's clothing is Du Pareil au Meme. I've found some great pieces there over the years and never spent more than 20€ on anything. Often I found tops, skirts, and even dresses for under 10€. You may have to sift through a few collections as the French are not immune from producing overpriced licensed clothing :)
A few things in my cart...this top, this nightgown, and this cape. If you live in the US your only option for shipping is international priority, which is both good and bad. Your clothing will arrive quickly (3-6 days), but you will spend about 21€. It wouldn't be a bad idea to get together with a friend and split the shipping. Oh, and if you don't speak French, pas de problème. The site is available in English too. FYI: today's exchange rate is $1.43 to 1€.
