I've just realised that this post is going to be largely Liberty orientated, yet again.I promise you, I am not on their payroll, just a big fan. Today a load of Liberty scarves went on sale via new Designer sale site Cocosa- the catch is you have to receive an invite to take part. I have 5 invites to give away, so message me if you're interested. Tomorrow night Liberty is holding the first of its Beauty cocktail events, where you can go and get a make-over in the newly revamped beauty hall, plus nab a free drink while you wait.And on the 17th, its the Liberty card holders' shopping event; a Liberty card is like the Boots loyalty card; it doesn't cost you anything to have one, you just get points whenever you spend in store. I've only spent enough to accumulate about 4 points I think. And then you get special discounts and invitations; like the 'shopping party' from 7-10pm on the 17th, and you'll still be able to get a 15% discount from the 17th until the 21st March. You can read Liberty's Spring magazine here: www.liberty.co.uk/fcp/content/NewsArchiveItem3/newsarchive It shows you all the gorgeous new stuff the revamped store has on offer. Don't get me wrong; I still can't afford any of it, but God, its worth just eyeing up the pretties and watching people for whom the credit crunch means Harrods not delivering groceries anymore, walking away with their shiny purple bags. I realise this is a bit voyeuristic and sad, so lets move on to something that may be more in our league; the new discount site from the brains behind Net-a-porter. Promising to be a kind of online Bicester village(the designer outlet store which is dangerously close to my family's house in Oxfordshire)The Outnet.com opens soon- you can sign up already here: www.theoutnet.com. Hopefully the prices will be financial apocalypse friendly, none of this was£600, now £300 nonsense.Whaddabargain!Not.
