There has been so much written and talked about Black Friday and Cyber Monday over the last week. However, if your like me and still haven't started your Christmas shopping, fear not, here is a few more ideas from Sola.
Condello Accessories are new to Sola this season and there is a great range of scarves now in store and on line. Here is a picture of my favourite one, for this week!They are all so soft and beautiful. A black base with a stripe and star print. There is then a great splash of colour from the magenta in the middle. There is also a navy mix and grey mix available.
Next up is a La Bougie candle. We have 6 options in store and online. My favourite this week is Mission Fig. I like to stock up on these candles so if you are do a bit of Christmas visiting, you will always have one handy to wrap and take with you. There is always too much drink and food, so a gift of a La Bougie candle is a nice alternative.
My final pick today is a pair of gloves from Not made up , a great Danish label, now in store and online. These gloves have a beautiful fur lining and are so luxurious and warm. There is a few colour options in store and online so click on the picture to take you to the link.
So ladies there is a few options for today. One style of our men's bamboo socks and the Slang handbag I featured in last weeks blog, are now sold out, so don't delay ladies!!! Don't forget to visit our gift ideas section for more inspiration!
With the festive season fast approaching, lots of customers are picking up some gifts for Christmas. This week I am going to quickly do the 3 most popular gifts so far.
1 - A chunky scarf and cap set.
With the temperature dipping dramatically this week, lots of customers are looking towards cosy accessories. Love this matching cap and chunky scarf from Not Made Up, a beautiful accessory label from Copenhagen. This set is in two colourways, grey/pink/black or navy/khaki/grey.
2 - Next up is a Slang hangbag.
All the ways from Barcelona , these handbags have created quite a stir since their arrival. They are functional, hardwearing stylish day bags . Few options on line and for a wider selection pop in store. Loving the mid size dark carbon options.
3 - Socks in a box for men.
My final pick for this week is something for the man in your life!. The bamboo socks in a box . These socks are beautiful crafted by Braintree, with 4 pairs per box, his twinkle toes love them.
Have you started your Christmas shopping? Hope this list will be a help, will post more ideas next week.
It has been another busy week here in Sola Boutique, with lots of gift ideas for the festive season now in store and on line. Here is the link to our Gift ideas section. One of my favourite products to arrive this week, is the La Bougie candle and diffusers.
Made in Ballinspittle here in West Cork, La Bougie launched in the summer of 2012 by Lucy Hagerty. Lucy had a illustrious career as a chef in the UK to the Duchess of York, Sarah Fergerson. After she married an Irish man, had children and eventually settled here, what she wanted to do was to create the perfect candle. ‘I think food, taste and smell are quite similar,’ she says. She spent eight years learning the secrets of the perfume world and a further two learning how to create the candles herself.
I am currently burning Sweet Pea and Pear and this is an ideal candle to light when you want to sit down and relax for an hour with a good book.
If you want to be taken back to your summer holidays, on these cold November days, then I suggest Honeysuckle and sea salt. This is a beautiful scent, that will transport you back to happy carefree summer days.
The room diffuser is new to Sola Boutique this year. If you like to have your favourite space scented these diffusers last up to 6 months. I do love the Mission Fig one best.
Do yo have a La Bougie candle or diffuser? What is your favourite one?
Winter has well and truely set in here in Bantry , West Cork. It's cold, dark and pretty much miserable!
However along with winter comes cosy sweaters, woolly hats and lots of treats to banish the misery!
My picks for this week have all just landed here are Sola HQ.
First up are the dark denim jeggings. These jeggings are Sola's number one selling item, all year around! For the winter they are in a dark dark denim and look super tucked inside your high boots. If you want a bit more weigh than your leggings , but the comfort of leggings these are a must for you. The have great back pocket detail and looks just as stylish as your skinny jeans.
Next up are two options in knitwear. The navy fluffy sweater is so cosy and the crew neck detail will keep you extra warm. Or if you want to add come colour to your winter why not go for the pocket sweater.
The final piece for this week is a layering long sleeve tee from No 2moro. Again I stock these all year around but as you can image they are a big hit for the winter. Layer these under sweaters and you will be so cosy! Also the lace detail adds a little length , to cover the bum!
Team all these pieces for a nice relaxed but stylish look. So there you go, what are you favourite things about winter?
