Fashion continues to outperform at John Lewis

Fashion sales at John Lewis rose 7.7% year on year in the week ending July 4, boosted by the second week of its clearance Sale.

The strongest growth was in the warm weather merchandise, especially women’s swimwear and nightwear, up 29%, and fashion accessories, up 17.6%.

Overall sales at the department store were up 2.7% to £88.93m for the week. Online sales were up 21.9%.

Director of store development Tim Harrison said: “The second week of clearance is an important week during the first half and everyone worked hard to deliver the 2.7% growth. There is no doubt that while the warmer weather has been a pleasant change, it has played its part in shaping the pattern of trade.”
