Suddenly, we find ourselves in September, and summer is beginning to feel like a distant dream. New Autumn stock has begun to arrive with lots more on the way: check out the upcoming designs on our ‘Coming Soon‘ page. There are still plenty of reductions in-store, as we clear out older stock to make way for the new products:

There are a large variety of duvet covers still at reduced prices also.

KALAMKARI by V&A. Back by popular demand!

And as older designs are cleared out, and new designs arrive, this Autumn also marks the return of the classic Kalamkari, proving that some designs are never completely out of fashion! Kalamkari was first launched by Dorma in the Spring of 1996. Now a V&A branded design, we are delighted to make it part of our Autumn range, and at a reasonable price too, with double sets at €65 and king sets at €75. The sets include duvet covers and two matching oxford pillowcases.

Many customers have been glad to see a collection of PVC shopping bags from Lamont back in stock. (There’s even a Christmas design amongst them!). We have stocked up on glass cloths too, including many with an Irish theme; perfect gifts to send to relatives abroad.

Meanwhile, the latest range of towels from the Bed and Bath Collection is brightening our shelves, with colours that include teal and raspberry, and, for the Autumn, grape, spice and mink. Come check them out!

Summer sale comes to a close

Christy hotel quality towels; soft and fluffy!
Christy hotel quality towels; soft and fluffy!

We are now heading into our final week of the summer sale, which ends next Saturday, August 31st.There’s still time to grab a bargain though, with prices reduced across the store, on all items. Check out our this selection of hotel-quality Christy towels: at almost half-price, you can pick up a hand towel at just €6.50, a bath towel at €12.50, and a bath sheet at €21.

Out of all our display beds, the one which captures the most attention is, naturally, the double bed in the window. Passers by are often drawn into the shop when our well-dressed double bed catches their eye! This week, perhaps in time with the birds’ autumn migration south taking place, we have ‘Fly Away‘ from Abode as our window display. The blue and white colouring retain a slightly nautical theme, without the need for stripes or ships.

It's that time of year when birds fly away, but these ones can stay with you..

So, don’t forget to check in with us this week, and avail of lower prices while you still can! Hope to see you in store.

Autumn approaches at Household Linens…


…which, sadly, means the end of the summer sale. But don’t worry as bargains remain on clearance items, and we can now look ahead to the autumn and the new designs and products coming our way. We love autumn deliveries when we can open up a box and see something new and fabulous looking back at us! To get the ball rolling, we have a new V&A design called Preeti, in warm berry tones. Matching curtains and a throw are also available, and there’s even a friendly introductory offer of 20% off the full price! Sanderson’s Pillemont Toile is also a new addition-a traditional toile design in a choice of blue or pink. Pop by and take a look.

September Update

Hello again Readers! Since we last posted, there’s been many changes here. New stock has been arriving almost on a daily basis, keeping us very busy indeed. There’s so much to choose from we had to create a whole new page entitled “New Stock“, just to showcase it’s full beauty. Below is a picture of one of our new Bedeck designs, ‘Darcey’. It’s possibly named after one of our favourite characters in literature (who are we kidding, we just want to see Colin Firth diving into  a lake).
