If you've been waiting for clearance deals on warm-weather clothes, you're in luck.

"There are really great deals on spring clothing at the end of the month at Memorial Day weekend sales, Perez says.

That includes pastel colors, pastel denims, spring dresses and spring shoes for women, men and kids. "Anything released in February is what's on sale," she says.

The reason is summer clothes are hitting the stores and retailers want to clear space for the new stock, says Hillary Mendelsohn, co-author of "thepurplebook: the definitive guide to exceptional online shopping."

Perez says you'll find discounts as deep as 40% to 50%. If you add store coupons -- from fliers and newspapers, as well as online, you can save up to 80%, she says.

Best of all, you'll find these deals at all kinds of department stores in every price range, she says.
