I would have thought the sales would make up for the increase:

£100 ex VAT now costs £117.50 and will go up to £120, however sales tend to be around 20% which would be £96, so you're still making a saving. In a nutshell VAT is going up 2.5% but I've never seen a sale where the discount is anything close to that low.
