Spring /Summer fashion has been creeping it’s way into the shops for a while now. Seeing all those bright colours and floral prints cheers me right up – I’m picturing sunny walks along the coast and sipping Pimms in the garden. Then I remember I live in the North East of England and it’s likely we’ll get approximately 2.5 warm, sunny days between now and October. But still, I can dream (or book a holiday somewhere far, far away). Either way, I make sure I’m prepared for the (2.5 days of) sunshine by buying lots of pretty summer clothes. This is where IntuMetrocentre gives me a hand with some fashion inspo at their #IntuFashion event this week. Running from 27th to 30th April, there’ll be catwalk shows showcasing SS17 collections from the likes of Topshop, House of Fraser, Accessorize, Coast and Primark – something for everyone, basically – with the models strutting their stuff to the latest tunes. So you can legitimately stare at good looking men in shorts and have a little boogie at the same time. Winning!
Stores will be offering discounts throughout the event, too, so you’re actually saving money. Well done, you! You should reward yourself by buying that handbag. Yes, I really should. I mean – you should. You. Yes, that’s what I meant. Seriously, though, this is a great way to save some cash on your summer wardrobe without having to wait until the sales (when summer will be a distant memory) – just pop to the customer service desk and pick up a leaflet for details.
And if you need any more convincing about getting yourself a new summer wardrobe, how about getting rid of stuff you don’t wear (to make room for the new stuff, obvs) and doing a good deed in the process? IntuMetrocentre are working closely with St Oswald’s Hospice this year, and are collecting donations of unwanted clothing. Charity bags can be obtained from the customer service desk and handed in at any St Oswald’s store.
So, seems like it’s settled. I’m ditching a load of clothing that’s cluttering my wardrobe and making way for some new summer threads. I’ve got my eye on anything embroidered, floral or blush pink – check out these picks:
IntuMetrocentre’s SS17 #IntuFashion event runs from Thurs 27th to Sunday 30th April, with catwalk shows taking place regularly in the main town square outside House of Fraser:
