Hello lovely people and Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fabulous week and are ready to face a new week with a positive attitude!
Many of you will have seen me last Saturday on Athlone Fashion Trail and oh my what an amazing day!! I was lucky enough to be invited by The Into The West Blogger Network as a VIP Blogger. A day filled with fashion and fun was not something I could turn down so I made the journey to Athlone and I was not disappointed. In fact the day was more fabulous than I could have imagined!
First up there was a meet and greet with the organisers and other bloggers over a delicious breakfast at Colm Quinn BMW. Colm Quinn have a gorgeous, modern showroom on the outskirts of Athlone. They are a BMW main dealer and they had some of the most gorgeous cars & jeeps that I have ever seen! With something to cater for every budget you should definitely give them a call if you’re in the market for a new motor. They transported us into town in true VIP style in a fleet of new BMW’s.
Our first boutique on the trail was Kadee Bridal. This is a beautiful, spacious boutique with some stunning dresses. Carrying designers such as Temperley London, Cymbeline and Suzanne Neville you are sure to find a unique dress that will make you feel like a princess on your special day.
Next up was Burgess of Athlone, the longest established department store in Ireland and your one stop department store that has something for everyone! Stocking brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Jacques Vert, St Martins, Little Darlings and Fred Perry. No matter what the occasion you will get the whole family kitted out at Burgess.
Then it was on to Olivia Danielle and my breath was almost taken away with the most unique and beautiful pieces. I was in shopping heaven. If you want to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons then you have to visit! Any lady dressed from Oliva Danielle is sure to turn heads. With a team of trained stylists on hand you won’t leave disappointed.
We then moved on to Athlone Town Centre which has all the best high street stores under one roof. From Zara, Oasis, River Island, Top Shop, you will be spoilt for choice! The centre is not to be missed if you are visiting Athlone!
We were treated to a mouth watering feast for lunch by The Fatted Calf Restaurant, another must stop when in Athlone.
Our next stop was Boutique Clodagh which has some gorgeous stock, whether you’re looking for smart casual or occasion wear you’re sure to find something here! They stock some top international brands such as Les Filles de Neaux, Sandwich and Pomodoro.
Then we headed for Nells Closet where I wanted to buy every single dress they had! Be it a wedding, ladies day, a ball, you will not regret taking a trip to Nells Closet. You’ll get all you need here included accessories and I can’t wait to visit this gem again!
We finished with a wrap party in the Raddison Blue Hotel – a gorgeous venue in the heart of Athlone. I will definitely be booking in for my next visit.
So ladies I can highly recommend a trip to the gorgeous town of Athlone where you can enjoy top class shopping in a scenic location with culinary delights and relaxation. The perfect spot for a weekend away!
On the day I wore a dress from Cos and my fabourite Ted Baker coat!
