Trip to McArthurGlen Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet

To celebrate the arrival of Spring/Summer 2015, McArthurGlen have invited bloggers to take part in a fun accessory style challenge and we were lucky enough to receive an invite. The challenge was set at two accessories for £250. So over the weekend, Lola and I headed down to Cheshire Oaks, one of McArthurGlen's six UK designer outlet. 

With more than 145 boutiques, restaurants and caf├ęs, Cheshire Oaks is the UK’s largest designer outlet. There brands on offer range from high-street favourites, like Warehouse and French Connection to high-end designers, including Burberry, Michael Kors and Mulberry. 

Even though the outlet is just an hour away from Manchester, Lola and I had never been to Cheshire Oaks. However I am not a stranger to McArthurGlen's Ashford outlet. I tend to pay it a visit once in a while when I am down in Kent.

After a brief planning session with the guide map, Lola and I were ready to hit the shops. Our favourite shops which stocked the best accessories, in our opinion, were Mulberry, Michael Kors, Lulu Guiness and Kurt Geiger. As it was such a sunny day, it was a bit difficult not to get a new pair of sunglasses from the Sunglass Hut or something sparkly from Swarovski (swoons). However Lola and I both think sparkly things should be bought for you and not by you!

After a few hours of heading back and forth to a few shops, we both found the perfect accessories which are sure to update our wardrobes next season. Together, we must have made savings of about £1000! Thanks again to McArthurGlen for this opportunity. 

We will be putting together two style diaries to highlight how versatile great accessories can be and how they completely transform a look. Stay tuned!
