Could you please explain your choice? I am really confused with the second part of the sentence and do not know how to solove it.

C has the correct construction. are priced to sell and they do sell.. here sell is optional as the meaning is clear without sell..

The immediate understanding is the fashion designers have cut prices, and this was done to price the clothes so that the clothes sell (easily, with low price tag). and they (Clothes OR Designers) are selling.

Only C tells us that the clothes are priced so that they (Clothes) sellout, and they (Clothes) do. This sentence gives us a clear meaning.
