Lifestyle | SS18 Intu MK Blogger Event
As soon as March arrives I am ready to pack up my winter clothes and bring out all the pastels, florals and bright colours!
As I packed away my big cosy jumpers this year I noticed that my work wardrobe was beginning to look a bit too monochrome for my liking. I had read about personal shopping many a time but, unfortunately, didn't know of anywhere nearby that did it. Luckily for me the SS18 Intu Blogger event last week was to introduce us to personal shopping at Debenhams. I had no idea that it was there, pretty bad for someone who loves clothes and goes into Debenhams every time I go to Intu!
The service is free and all you have to do is go online to book. There are different types of services, express appointments (45mins), seasonal wardrobe update, special occasions for the bride and men's appointments. You can find them all here.
We had a preview of some pieces from the womenswear, bridal and men's departments. There were lots of this seasons trends on show such as florals, colour and pastels. I'm definitely lacking in florals in my wardrobe, so when I go for my appointment I'm secretly hoping there will be some on the rail!
A Floral Fest!
There are two personal shoppers in the Milton Keynes store. You can choose from either. The personal shopping section is located on the first floor by the lifts, there is a fire door to the right of the lifts and you can go through there. There is no obligation to buy anything after your appointment. The most appealing thing for me is having someone who doesn't know me pick out the items, I am very curious to see what they would choose!
After trying some of the delicious food which was kindly provided by Loaf and Bloom, the new restaurant inside Debenhams, we headed down to the Dior counter. We were able to have a sneak peak of some of the new lip products.
Afterwards we headed to Lush where it was time to see some of the new spring launches and try not to spend anything!
Now for my favourite part.....the challenge! Now, this will be a super long post so look out for part two coming up later this week!
