Spring clothes, swimsuits on sale in July

Remember those shorts, tanks and T-shirts that the stores brought out at the start of spring? Whatever's left is at a deep discount in July.

For retailers, "July is all about clearance," says Daniel Butler, vice president of retail operations for the National Retail Federation. "You'll see stuff 50 (percent) to 75 percent off."

Also look for sneakers, beach towels or anything that screams "warm weather."

Plan to hit the pool? Swimsuits for all age ranges will be 60 percent to 70 percent off, Butler says.

Retailers want to make room for fall and winter merchandise, and that means everything related to spring and summer has to go, Butler says. "The whole month of July is about getting rid of the spring goods and making room for back-to-school and fall receipts."
