March Update 2014

“The time is flying!” seems to be the words on everyone’s lips these days. Yes, it’s March already, and Patrick’s weekend is behind us. We’re quite  glad to see Spring in full swing as it brings deliveries of new stock with it. Damask from Sheridan is back again by popular demand and available at discounted prices. This classic duvet set appeals to all ages and while neutral enough to suit most bedrooms, its warm golden tone makes it stand out from other damask prints. We also have a new range of towels from Deyongs in five colours. The teal and seafoam (duck-egg in lay terms!) sets are proving popular amongst the staff-but you will also find cream, magenta and mocha colours in the range.

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.

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..

Mustique- Part of the new Pure Opulence Range.

It seems to us here at House Hold Linens that everybody is having babies. Sometimes it can be difficult to pick out a present for a new baby. Clothes don’t last very long and new parents always get tons of them so if you want to give something which can be kept for many years why not get the new arrival a soft fluffy blanket for their pram or cot. Starting at 15 euro it wont break the bank either.
