You might be busy pioneering your professional career but downtime is essential. New ideas often surface, especially when new cities are involved. Changing your surrounding can trigger a light bulb moment-so we're always up for a quick getaway to an inspiring new destination. You want to keep it simple, make sure you pack mix-and-match items that offer optimum style with minimal carry-on.

Day 1:

 This look needs to be multi functional. Starting with jeans;  they're comfortable, yet smarter than lounge wear and can be paired with anything. Don't forget to bring a coat and travel in it. That way you'll be prepared for any unexpected changes in temperatures at the same time as saving on luggage space. Finally, a cabin bag to carry all the important items. On arrival, drop your luggage and head on out to explore...you'll be dressed for it!

Day 2: 

Bright eyed after a sleep, it's now time to take in the sights. Switch up the coat you wore yesterday by combining it with a blouse. Tourists sports close early evening, so dinner is next on the agenda. This outfit perfectly balances ease and elegance to take you straight to the local restaurants.

Day 3: 

It's day 3 and you're ready to hit the shops! The uncharted streets of a new city offer plenty of opportunities to treat yourself as well as pick gifts for loved ones. Pop on your leather jacket paired with a simple top and stretch denim jeans for the rush in and out of shops before closing time. Once they've shut up, head out to experience what the evening has in store...

Day 4:

In the blink of an eye, the final day has arrived. Your final ensemble wants to promise comfort to ensure you get the best chance of rest on the journey back to blighty. Layer up cosy knitwear and complete with a lightweight trouser. Then with your bag and coat in tow, its time to head back to the daily grind.

HOW TO SHOP THE ROBINSONS SUMMER SALE

The last few days didn’t just see the start of Wimbledon, but also the start of the Robinsons summer sale. If you have visited us in store, you’ll know that our summer sale is in full swing with upto 50% off original prices on designer brands including Mulberry, Michael Kors, Versace, Armani, Boutique Moschino, Ralph Lauren and more.

With so many great pieces still available in the Robinsons summer sale, we wanted to share our tips for savvy sales shopping.

NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY THAT INVESTMENT PIECE…

If you have had your head turned and heart taken by the butter soft leather of a Mulberry or Michael Kors handbag, this is the time to invest for less. The beauty of handbag shopping in the sales is that classic styles are just as likely to be sporting those red tags as more trend-led pieces, so there is a good chance that the handbag you have had your eye on is on sale now at Robinsons. Plus, there’s nothing as gratifying as working out the cost-per-wear of a sales steal that you will probably use every week for years on end.

…BUT YOU CAN ALSO ENJOY INSTANT GRATIFICATION WITHOUT THE GUILT

Is there anything more thrilling than spotting this season’s top trend on sale? The summer sales are our favourite time to impulse buy, especially for those seasonal trends that you’d like to get on board with without splashing too much cash. The beauty of the summer sales is that they fall right before holiday season, so you can snap up those loose summer shirts, like the ESCADA Rope Neck Tie Blouse and beach-ready bags like the striped linen and leather Michael Kors number in time for departure day. And we all know that nothing makes us happier than a new holiday wardrobe.  

KEEP EYES PEELED FOR THE CLASSICS

The fashion editors will tell you that, as much as snapping up seasonal trends for less is seriously satisfying, it is scooping a future wardrobe classic that leaves us really smug when it comes to sales shopping. This MaxMara San Remo Linen Dress is available in two versions and this is one of those special occasions on which it is perfectly acceptable to buy both. The Vanilla version is a simple, short shift dress that will become your go-to for summers in the office, whilst Vanilla Sparkle is scattered with tiny, subtle soft gold sequins and is screaming out to be worn with tanned skin and sandals for balmy evenings on the Italian Riviera. The beautifully cut style – with pockets – will last you years.

Have you shopped the Robinsons summer sale? Visit us in store 7 days a week at 2 South Parade, Bawtry, DN10 6JH. We’re open Monday to Saturday 9.30 – 5.30pm and Sunday 11 – 4pm. 

A FATHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

We shouldn’t wait until the third Sunday of June to show Dad how much he means to us, but woe betide any son or daughter who doesn’t unleash the gifts come Sunday 18th June.

But what do you buy the man who already has an overflowing sock drawer and a toolbox fit to burst with tools that, according to Mum, he never gets around to using?

We have put together our annual Father’s Day gift guide, full of designer options that promise to get the nod of approval from Mum. Who knows, some of them could even distract attention away from that awful Dad dancing he insists on demoing at any given opportunity.

A new wallet is the perfect way to say a cheeky, slightly ironic thank you to the Dad who is always digging deep for the family. This timeless Oak Mulberry Wallet is a classic; ideal for Dads who refuse to give their wallet the heave-ho until it’s on its last legs, this one will last Dad years. We have styles from Versace and Hugo Boss available in store now, too.

Cufflinks are small but mighty and there is no mistaking their ability to complete Dad’s outfit when he is suited and booted.  As South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire’s leading Mulberry stockist, we have Mulberry cufflinks available in various designs including these Rectangular Plaque and Coin styles.

Dad can put his best foot forward in new kicks from Hugo Boss. Dodgy Dad shoes are a thing of the past; our old men are more stylish than ever and these Hugo Boss trainers will be a far more welcome addition to their footwear collections come Sunday than that pair of socks you had a in mind.

Leave the ‘World’s Greatest Dad’ mug on the shelf this year. Visit Robinsons today and shop for a Father’s Day gift that’ll put a smile on the face of the main man next Sunday instead.

 

 

THE ROBINSONS GUIDE TO MOTHER’S DAY

She’s spent hours on the sideline in the rain and she’s washed the muddy socks afterwards. She puts David Copperfield to shame with her abilities to magic a perfectly pressed outfit from the deepest, darkest depths of the wash basket in little more than an hour. She’s an unofficial and unpaid chauffer, cleaner, personal assistant and nanny.

Mum deserves a medal, but she’d prefer a Mulberry.

Mother’s Day is just around the corner – that’s Sunday 26th March, in case Mum usually takes care of the diary too – and we have plenty of gifts that’ll show the special lady in your life that all her hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed over the years.

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but handbags come a very close second. We have classic styles from Mulberry, ESCADA, Versace and Michael Kors in store now, along with a great selection of purses, wallets and cosmetic pouches, too.

Jewellery lasts longer than flowers and it won’t throw mum’s diet off track quite like those chocolates will. After all, isn’t that what a huge Mothering Sunday roast dinner and dessert is for?

Natural semi-precious stones and crystals, such as ethereal moonstones, opals and bohemian turquoise, are carefully selected and set within solid silver to create Soru Jewellery, a brand loved by the likes of Kate Middleton, Fearne Cotton and countless other sartorially-savvy celebrity names. Alternatively, there’s jewellery by Versace, new in store at Robinsons.

Mum deserves the best. Visit Robinsons today to find a Mother’s Day present as special as she is.
