Summer’s sliding slowly by…


As we come in to the August weekend, once more we wonder how time has slid us by… The excitement of the Euros in June is already a hazy memory and it won’t be long ’til thoughts turn to books & uniforms and college timetables and all that those entail 🙁 There are some things we can still be happy about though !

13754245_1438097509539482_2710204494327985427_nThis year marks the anniversary of our 39th. Annual Summer Sale and we continue to be grateful for the very loyal customers and friends we have made since first opening at 11 Princes St. back in 1977. Sadly, many of our neighbours from those days such as the “Emerald China & Glass Centre”, “Oldens Family Butchers”, “O’Connors Shoes” and others are no longer in business but we are fortunate to have new neighbours in Oliver Plunkett St. such as Elvery Sports who will cater for all things fitness & leisure wise while MarcCain across the road from us will help all you ladies to look in tip-top shape! Of course, they join our other neighbours in Fran & Jane, Sheena’s Boutique, Rococo, & Olori to make this end of Oliver Plunkett St. the “must go to” destination for all you fashionistas !

For our own part, we continue to try and bring you great quality at great prices… We have two designs in the “Christy” collection at 50% off and they really do have the WOW factor!

Both designs are fully dressed on beds inside the shop so why not pop in and see for yourself and feel the superb texture that has made the “Christy” name so synonymous with quality bed linen.

In other news, we are pleased to have been awarded the title of “Sleep Experts” by our supplier “The Fine Bedding Co.” whose duvets and pillows we are pleased to stock. The title is only awarded to shops who have a proven knowledge of all things sleep related and have a level of expertise above that of your average bed linen shop. Have a look at this short video and it helps explain even more why sleep is such an important part of our lives..

There’s an awful lot more to see inside if you haven’t visited for a while… The big craze in the cinemas is of course the BFG or “The Big Friendly Giant” for those of you who have never read Roald Dahl’s famous classic ! We are thrilled to have the officially licensed duvet covers in stock which come in both single & double size with pillowcase(s) included. They are quite reasonable priced as well – only €25.00 for the single & €38.00 for the double in the sale 🙂

Finally, we spoke earlier of some happy, hazy memories from the Euros but let’s not forget that our very own Cork team, Cork City F.C. are still flying the flag for us in this years qualifiers for the Europa League ! Next Thursday night they travel to Belgium to take on local favourites Genk. May we wish them every success on the road and we look forward to seeing the return match in Turner’s Cross on Thursday, August 4th.
