Did you know that you can combine flowers and wine from our site to make that perfect gift for her?
From gorgeous red roses to vintage champagne, Ragtangle Shopping Village have brought together florist Fleur De Lys and wine merchant The Village Vine to combine their products!
There are some fantastic products on offer across both ranges. Try our house favourite wine Lapostolle Rosé (£8.95). With it’s deep pink colour, the bottle looks beautiful in the gift box as well as tasting great – it’s certainly an easy drinking wine!
At the other end of scale, we recommend Deutz Brut Classic champagne (£34.95 NV or £45 Vintage 2005). This champagne has a real class about it and certainly looks more the part than other supermarket counterparts.
A Dozen Red Roses(£34.95) with pussy willow foliage is an obvious starter when looking for flowers, but depending on the time of year we can also recommend having a look at combining large colourful gerberas with either sunflowers or pink lillies.
If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for, you can always order a custom bouquet and tell us what you’d like in the order notes at checkout.
Failing that, give our shops a call by following the links across and they’ll be able to offer you friendly personal advice on exactly what to buy!
To save you time looking through the entire shopping village, we’ve put a selection of gifts for her together here: www.ragtangle.com/giftsforher
Have a look at our new range of Mother’s Day flowers from Fleur De Lys.
We have various beautiful arrangements of either bouquets or posies. Depending on your taste, we recommend posies if you think your flowers are most likely to go in the kitchen. If you want them displayed in the hall, then often we recommend one of our taller bouquets.
Alternatively, you can always request we arrange the flowers into a globe vase shape or a basket. If you order an arrangement with a basket, we’ll always give you the basket free of charge.
In November, most sales are wound down in swish department stores. Much better to explore niche boutiques, especially online. These offer the sort of mid-priced, modern occasionwear that is so elusive on the high street.
The trouble with buying that Marks & Spencer frock is that hundreds of women will have done the same. Several e-boutiques such as Fee G (feeg.ie) and Dia(dia-boutique.com), specialise in occasionwear. Also try net-a-porter.com, mywardrobe.com, austique.co.uk and lotuslondon.com.
Meanwhile, nothing comes close to the original “babe” boutiques such as The Cross, Anna, Matches and Browns for investment in evening wear.
This season a new hot favourite has emerged – the Aviator jacket!
This season everyone has gone wild about this style! It started with Burberry and Giles bringing it to everyone’s attention on the catwalk. Since then it’s hit the highstreet with a massive reaction! It follows on from the military theme that’s a huge trend this year.
So want to know how to spot these jackets? Well, it’s all about the big collars and metal buckle detailing. They come in a range of colours from black, tan, chocolate and cream. To help you out we’ve picked out some of the best from the highstreet for you!
This fabulous jacket (left) is from Boohoo.com (£45.00). We love the chocolate fabric and huge collar!
On the right this jacket is from The Vestry (www.vestryonline.com) (£45.00). It has a lovely side zip effect with a slightly smaller collar. A slightly toned down take but still oozing style!
Our final jacket is this one from New Look (£39.99). We love the faux sheepskin effect and the deep brown colour. New Look also have matching heels in this style. Check them out now!
So what are you waiting for? Don’t be without an aviator jacket this season!
Prepare yourself for Spring 2011. Military styles are going out, the Biker Jacket is coming in!
With everyone talking about aviator jackets this season, the natural move is to the biker chic.
Key trends for the biker fashion are zipped sleeves, quilting and motorcycle boots to match.
We love this biker jacket style available now from Boohoo (left: £25.00) and we also love this funky alternative from AliciaModa on Ragtangle (right: £28.00). Click here to browse more biker jackets at AliciaModa a>
Biker jackets are perfect for when the weather gets a bit warmer after winter, but you need something to keep the chill out… Get stuck in to the new Biker trend now!
Missing the Summer already? Well, if you wish you could get some florals back in your wardrobe but feel the Summer season has gone then here’s some good news! There’s no need to ditch the florals just yet because this season there’s a new micro trend about!
Summer was all about the floral pattern, small and dainty or big and bold…we couldn’t get enough of it! So this season, designers have kept up this popular trend and brought with them a new take on florals! The oriental floral print.
It’s just been spotted on the catwalks and we love this new take on the floral trend for Autumn and Winter. This body-con dress is the perfect example by boohoo.com (£18.00).
If you want to reclaim some of that summer feeling now the weather’s getting colder, step out in this dress and you’ll look bang on trend!
A new season is upon us and we’ve got the latest colours for the Autumn/Winter season. It’s been all a buzz on the catwalk as designers have been show casing their latest collections. And of course one of the most important parts of a new season collection is to get the colours right. This year the colours reflect an earthy and back to nature feel.
But it’s not all about the catwalk! These colours will soon be hitting the high street. Not sure where to find them? Well, don’t worry because we’ve got the definitive guide on how to get it right and wear to find these colours so you can make sure your wardrobe is bang up to date!
Staying in tune with military and uniform themes which have emerged this season, khaki is a huge colour this season. Khaki jackets and trousers are particularly popular. We love this cardigan from New Look (£18.00). It’s an easy way to add a bit of this colour to your look.
Nudes are back this season. This dress is from The Vestry(www.vestryonline.co.uk) (£32.99). It encompasses both the colour and the hugely popular one shoulder look so we think it’s the perfect dress for those nights out.
Greys are supposed to reflect the grey sky at this time of year. But it’s not all gloomy! This top from ASOS.com (£20.00) is stunning. It shows off your figure and adds some glamour to those every day looks.
Black is a classic that keeps coming back onto the catwalks. It’s hard to ever imagine it being out of fashion. This season coats hit our shops again and the weather starts to get colder. Staying with the military theme, this black jacket from boohoo.com (£40.00) is bang on trend and super warm for the winter!
So now you know the colours for the season and how to get the best looks this Autumn. What are you waiting for? Get shopping!
Another big trend this season to emerge is Military style clothes. This year there is a new take on the usual khaki and brown combat style that is still popular, particularly with celebrities like Cheryl Cole. Designers have headed down the more uniform style this season. Navy blue and blacks are popular colours with gold braiding and buttons often used to emphasise the military feel.
Military style jackets are hugely popular this season. These jackets come in a variety of fabrics from leather to velvet and are often short and fitted at the waist. Again blacks, greys and navy blues are the colours of this trend and these jackets are every where! They’re perfect for either wearing out in the evening but equally as appropriate for the office.
We love the military take on this cardigan (left) by The Vestry (www.vestryonline.co.uk) £18.99. Many of the high street shops stock this trend and this piece goes to show that it’s not just jackets military style has been injected into! This season dresses and skirts also have a take on the military trend!
So don’t be without some military fashion this season!
Animal prints are heading to the high street this Autumn. Straight off the catwalk, this trend is set to be huge this season! Leopard print is particularly prominent in this seasons designer collections and it’s no surprise. It’s always been popular but this season animal prints are back to being bang on trend.
Leopard print is all about looking seductive this season and you can find this animal print on pretty much every item of clothing this season, from coats to leggings! But keep it glam by teaming leopard print with black this season.
We particularly love this leopard print dress from The Vestry (www.vestryonline.co.uk) £24.99. It’s perfect for standing out on those nights out! The added diamante detailing adds a bit of sparkle to this bold pattern.
If you’re not brave enough to step out in something as striking as our featured dress then there are plenty of styles which have accents of animal print- less obvious but still bang on trend!
So get out there and snap up some animal print for autumn!
