When it comes to shopping, there's two kinds of shopping I like to think are being done around Christmas. You've got Christmas gifting for friends and family (which usually involves me shopping for gifts I'd like to receive..) And you've also got party wear shopping for events like work Christmas parties, New Years Eve etc. 

When I partake in both of these kinds of shopping I like to get everything purchased in one sweep and if possible in one place. Somewhere I can pick up my gifts, shop for that LBD and stop for a mulled wine and a leisurely lunch half way round to keep me going. So when McArthurGlen Designer Outlets invited me to visit McArthurGlen York I couldn't wait to wrap up my Christmas shopping.  


When it comes to the Party season I like to invest in something that's going to see me through a couple of Festive Seasons, whether that be a LBD (a little black dress) something with a little sparkle to give a little hint of Christmas, or the fail safe black two piece.

McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York didn't disappoint when it came to shopping for New Year's Eve, housing brands like French Connection, Ted Baker, and Reiss the choice of brands was well welcome. I managed to narrow my pick down to two pieces; a gorgeous Reiss gold mini dress with an open back, and a beautifully tailored black suit - both 60% off!

I love gifting over Christmas. Don't get me wrong spending the holidays with friends and family is the most important part of Christmas. (As well as the Christmas dinner..) But I also like to give back to everyone for what they've done for me over the past year, and most of all I love seeing everyones faces light up when they open a thoughtful gift.

I couldn't help but pay the Perfume shop a visit and pick up the covet Gucci Bloom fragrance for a special someone, saving 20% off RRP. I also like to go down the candle route, because lets face it who doesn't welcome candles? The Yankee Candle shop had an amazing offer so I couldn't help but stock up on a couple of their large Christmas jars!

   In the UK, McArthurGlen’s six centres are home to more than 250 of the most sought-after names in premium, designer and luxury fashion, such as Osprey London, Kurt Geiger, Ted Baker, Calvin Klein, Hobbs, Jaegar, Polo Ralph Lauren and Hugo Boss, all offering year-round savings of up to 60% off RRP. If you’re looking for a centre near you you’ve got; Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet near Manchester (Europe’s first designer outlet and still the UK’s largest), Ashford Designer Outlet (just 37 minutes from London by train), Bridgend Designer Outlet (Wales’ largest), East Midlands Designer Outlet near Nottingham, Swindon Designer Outlet and York Designer Outlet.  
The centres are destinations in their own right, providing an inviting atmosphere for a great day out with family and friends. Shoppers can rest and relax in the landscaped surroundings, stop for a drink or a leisurely lunch at the many cafes and restaurants on site, and keep the family entertained at dedicated children's play areas. The centres also host free entertainment throughout the year, such as festivals and concerts. There really is something for everyone!
