August Arrives!

Make the most of the final summer bank holiday-let’s hope it’s a good one 🙂

Yes, August is here, and the bank holiday weekend with it. Wherever you are or whoever you’re with, we hope you have a good one. We’ll be taking a break ourselves and staying closed Sunday and Monday, and re-opening Tuesday at 9am. There will still be plenty bargains next week, mind you, as the summer sale has been extended to mid-August. To add to our current bargains, we now have extra large (Emperor) size bath towels in stock. These are even larger than your typical bath sheet. Wrap yourself up in one for just €24 (previously €45). Hope to see ye all soon!


Hot, hot hot!

What better weather for washing clothes and sheets? Fresh off the line!

How lucky are we this year to have such wonderful summer weather? If you do need some cooling off, however, step inside our store for a while where our summer sale continues. We’ve been stocking up on sheets this week, and we now have a new range of 200 thread-count cotton sheets from Belledorm in four different shades. They are available in two depths also: 12″(all colours) and 15″(white and cream only). Plus there is currently 20% off the marked price, so now is the time to buy. It’s worth remembering that full cotton has the advantage of being breathable and, therefore, cooler on summer nights.

Golf and bowling mini-hand towels are also back in stock at €3.50 each!

Enjoy the sun, we might see ye in here in the shade.

Now’s your chance to..

The Spundown quilt is machine washable-meaning no specialist cleaning bills!

stock up on quilts and pillows in the summer sale. It’s even worth purchasing good winter quilts now for future use. All quilts are reduced from the finest Premium Goose Down to more reasonable synthetic quilts. One quilt which is consistently popular is the Spundown quilt with micro-fibre filling, available in a 9.0 tog, 13.5 tog and an all-seasons version. As well as being both soft and lightweight, the main advantage to a Spundown quilt is that it can be washed in a domestic machine at 60 degrees (the temperature which kills dustmites). So it’s a great choice for kids or those with allergies also. Come take a look in-store!

April Update

The clearance sale continues here at Household Linens, and great bargains remain throughout the store. Notable amongst these are duvet sets from the Sanderson range, with single sets now starting at €29.50 in designs such as Roslyn, Tulips, Piedmont Toile plus there is up to a third off the well-loved Dandelion Clocks. For images of all these and others, visit our Duvet Sets image gallery.

The recognisable themes of flowers and butterflies, often seen on Accessorize jewellery and handbags transfer well to their bed linen collection also. The three new designs are sure to bring summer into your home-check them out in the image gallery.

Speaking of summer, light voile curtains are a great way to dress a window during the warmer months, and Seville, a pretty floral design in cream has long been a favourite amongst customers. Temporarily discontinued, we are now glad to say that it is back in stock and here to stay for summer! Check it out in the curtain gallery.

Another curtain, back by popular demand, is Plaza red, a striking eyelet curtain in cream, with blocks of red which add a dash of warmth to any room.
