The American holiday, Columbus Day, is a nationwide holiday that honours the Italian explorer, Christopher Columbus, following his discovery of the "New World" on Oct. 12, 1492.
The holiday is held on the 2nd Monday in October every year and for some, it means a day off work or school but for others, its an excuse to hit the shops and click on your favourite online stores for some of the best sales of the year.
Whilst the sales are nothing compared to the annual Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales, shoppers can still experience significant price slashing. For those of us in the UK many of the sales still apply. The above items are my favourites from the J Crew Columbus Day Sale who are doing 25% off the entire site with code SHOPNOW.
Enjoy the sales ... Don't spend frivolously ;)
