I'm looking for a nice jersey and shorts, I have look at my LBS but I found all of them very pricey. What is a good price for a set?

Go online to Performance, Nashbar, or Supergo..They have sales all the time...W/o a sale, good cycle wear is not cheap...Particularily if you want the more effective , better grade chamois...But on sale, not uncommon to get $70 shorts/ $60 jerseys for $20 off of each.
Lesser expensive shorts/ jersey's you can get for maybe for a total of about $65..That means the chamois is pretty thin and jerseys are pretty plain.
Are you looking for something specific to racing or in general... if so look ^^^^

If you're looking to save money, don't do it on your BUTT.
That's the one place where you should never skimp and save.
That being said, not all high-end shorts are the same, and you will spend some time finding the best fit for your arse.
If ever there were a case of You-Get-What-You-Pay-For.... this is it.

You can be in a hurry and buy now , get a cheap chamois and it will not help that much on really long rides..Wait and get a good set of shorts when you find a sale...Often PI attack shorts are on sale for under $50..Cheaper end of PI but still feels pretty good to me on 60 mile plus rides.

Email them your height - weight - waist size and they will fit you perfectly..
