Hunting for Tatler Treasure…


Last year, Tatler – one of the UK’s most prestigious fashion titles – teamed up with charity Cancer Research UK to sell some prized designer possessions in it’s stores for bargain prices. I know, we’re upset we missed out too. But, the initiative is back for spring and on Monday, 59 designer items went on sale across the country. Here’s the tricky bit – neither company is letting on where they are though. So the hunt (and race) is on; these items are sure to fly as soon as any lucky customers stumble upon them in store!

The Clothes Line loves this idea, raising the standard of donations to charity shops to get the best possible price is exactly the sort of thing we do too. We get amazing designer pieces donated to us on a regular basis, and send them out to our shops across the country. The only difference being; we have far less shops stocking The Clothes Line product (six to be precise), so your chances are far higher at finding a designer gem. Plus, we let you know as much as we can where these items will be heading! So there’s really no excuse – get down to your nearest Blue Cross shop now!

Donation of The Day

River Island boots

It’s nearly summer, it’s nearly summer, it’s nearly summer…. No, actually it’s not, and with the UK battered by storms, floods and the such-like, now has never been a better time to invest in a pair of boots. This pair, donated this morning, have never been worn, are in their original box, and are from high street fave River Island. For £25, this is a price-per-wear bargain that’s far too hard to work out, but trust us, it’s good.

The wedge heel is already a fail safe heel for all sorts of occasions; but this boot has a sneaky concealed platform too, making them even easier to walk in, and perfect for either work, shopping or a night out. The double exposed zip function gives them a serious nod towards grunge style, and being black they’ll be bang on trend for this time of year; yet come spring they can be teamed with a white shift dress to work that all important monochrome look.

These UK size 6 (Eur 39) beauties will be heading to our Blue Cross Hale shop in Manchester next week for the very respectable price of £25. All proceeds go towards helping pets in crisis, so you can look good and feel good too!
