There's a lot to get excited about at the moment. We're actually enjoying summer sunshine, England are winning football matches (and Germany aren't) and the John Lewis clearance sale is now on. If you've been too busy sunbathing or glued to the antics of Captain Kane and the lads to check out the bargains, fear not! We've picked our must-haves from the long list of reductions and Special Buys.

You can even shop from your sun bed! Enjoy...
1. Bistro Bar pendant ceiling light
If you want to recreate the trendy gastropub look by baring your bulbs, this light fitting is a savvy buy. Consisting of five filament bulbs hung from a solid bar, it would look spectacular suspended over a dining table or kitchen island. A pewter finish enhances its industrial feel.

Regular visitors to the site might remember this Patternity range, which came out at the beginning of the year. Patternity is a group of ‘cult pattern pioneers’, who believe that patterns can inspire positive living. And they teamed up with John Lewis to create this collection of bathroom towels and accessories in prints that promote wellbeing. The pattern you see here is Reflect. Made up of simple geometric shapes – it's designed to feel balanced, with a sense of yin and yang about it.

4. Liberty print curtains
The result of another John Lewis collaboration – this time with fabric legends Liberty – these peacock feather print curtains would make any homeowner feel proud. Plus, it's not often you can pick up a pair of Liberty curtains for £55, so grab them while you can. We'd team with dark blue or green walls for a rich and cosy luxe living space.
There are five sizes to choose from – three of width 167cms with drops of 137cm, 182cm, 228cm, and two of width 228cm with drops of 137cm and 182cm.
Maybe you've been to the Big Apple or just dream of visiting one day. Either way, this vintage-inspired print, depicting three icons of the New York skyline, is a great celebration of the city. It comes framed and mounted.
Buy now: Charlotte Oakley NYC Poster Framed Print, 61 x 51cm, Was £60.00, NOW £30.00, John Lewis (opens in new tab)
