Friends arrives at Primark


Primark is delighted to announce a new range of fan favourite items that will have everyone reminiscing about their favourite 90’s TV show FRIENDS, from Warner Bros.

Could we BE anymore excited about this collection? Bring Central Perk into your own home and prepare for coffee breaks on tap. Everyone’s fave American sitcom might have finished back in 2004, but the re-runs will live forever, am I right? And as nothing will ever quite fill the Friends shaped void in our lives, we might as well try and recreate it ourselves!! Find your lobster with these PJs, cosy throws, and duvet set, oh and a cookie jar so big that even Joey would be happy!

 

 

Monks Cross Shopping Park in Partnership with York City Football Club


Monks Cross is delighted to announce that a new partnership deal has been agreed with York City Football Club for the forthcoming 2018/19 season. The partnership will see the Monks Cross appear as back-of-the-shirt sponsors on the club’s new Under Armour kit.

With both Monks Cross and York City entering a period of rejuvenation, the newly formed partnership makes perfect sense. Summer 2018 will see the start of a series of on-site changes at Monks Cross to grow its retailer offer and enhance its shopper experience.
Katherine Sharp, Centre Manager for Monks Cross Shopping Park, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with York City Football Club for the 2018-19 season.


“As we move into the first phase of a new period for Monks Cross, strengthening bonds with our soon-to-be neighbour was of key importance to us. We look forward to seeing the new stadium continue to take shape, alongside the exciting developments at Monks Cross.”
Nick Greatrex, the clubs’ Head of Partnerships, said: “We are really pleased to welcome Monks Cross Shopping Park as a club partner.
“We now look forward to working together closely during our emotional final season at Bootham Crescent and also in the future at our new home in the community stadium at Monks Cross.”

Spring Style Inspiration.


Spring fashion has officially sprung! Although the weather has been frosty over the past few weeks, it’s definitely starting to pick up. The elves have been taken down off the shelves and replaced with Easter eggs, so we thought we’d release our inner Gok Wan and give you a little spring style inspiration.

Give Winter The Boot.

The sun is peeping through the clouds but that doesn’t mean it’s time to break out the flip-flops.
But it also doesn’t mean the only shoes you can wear are your clumpy winter boots because let’s face it, they’ve probably taken a beating in the latest weather.
So we’ve had a little browse around Schuh and we were speechless. All we can say is they’ve really pulled out all the stops this year. From Kim K styled ankle boots to flower power doc martins, their spring shoe collection is stunning. They have something for everyone, for the simmered stylist to the full blown fashion icons, you’ll 100% find the shoe for you.

Bag it.

An outfit is all about the accessories and this spring, we’re all about pops of colour and florals! Bright greens, yellows and pinks are definitely on the seasonal menu. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we stepped into New Look and saw the array of colours surrounding us!
From stylish back packs to WAG bags and clutches, there’s a bag to fit every occasion just in store for you.

Get your coat…

We know it’s spring but we’re still in York, so lets face it, it’s still going to be chilly – they don’t call it April showers for nothing! But that doesn’t mean you’ve got to trek about in a big parka all the time, H&M’s men’s jacket range is amazing. From sleek going out jackets, to casual day to day, their collection is perfect for any man with any price range!

Seasonal Skirts

It’s time to whip out your skirts girls, because we’re all about flowers and frills in the spring.
Topshop’s collection is perfect for a quick photo opp in the street – whether you prefer a fitted mini skirt or you want to channel your inner princess in a long flowy maxi, we’ve got you covered.

Winter Warmers at their Finest


Just because Christmas is over, doesn’t mean winter is. We’ve still got some chilly months ahead of us so we thought we’d give you a touch of wardrobe inspiration. Think chunky knits, thigh high boots, bold colours and statement pieces galore.

The Thigh’s the Limit.

You may have noticed over the past few months, people are definitely getting a tad more daring with their outfits… and we love it! Thigh high boots have taken the fashion world by storm. Pair them with a jumper dress, jeans or even leggings and you’ll look as though you’ve just stepped straight off the run way. An added bonus about wearing these boots is they keep your legs warm! They’re perfect for a night on the town because as well as keeping your little piggies nice and toasty, they look hot too!

Summer bodies are made in the winter.


If your New Year Resolutions are still going strong, then you’re probably following the ‘summer bodies are made in the winter’ rule, (we know we’re trying too, although it’s not gone too well so far). Trying to stay motivated for the gym is hard, especially when it’s cold outside and all you want to do it curl up in front of the fire and watch Netflix all day.
If there’s one thing that can motivate us, it’s finding the perfect gym outfit, and boy did our stores deliver! They have every style a girl could want, from bold, stand out active wear, to calming neutrals… if these outfits don’t motivate you, nothing will! We’re obsessed with Alice Liveingly’s new collection at Primark, not only is there a lot of options but it’s good quality and it won;’t break the bank. H&M have a gorgeous active wear collection, complete with workout accessories and finally, Topshop Ivy Park collection… what can we say? If it’s good enough for Beyonce, it’s good enough for us!

Life’s a Frill…

We don’t know about you but we’re living for frills at the moment! They can take a bland work outfit and transform you into the fun gal at the office. You’ll definitely be the Elle Woods of your workplace! From subtle blouse frills to bold trouser leg frills, there’s a style that will definitely entice you.
Work-wear used to be very basic, consisting of usually black, greys and whites… however in the recent years it’s definitely been given a mix up! Walking into your everyday office no longer looks like you just interrupted a funeral. People wear bold and bright colours, experiment with patterns and always throw a fun pair of shoes into the mix.
