Spot the Spring Summer Trends at Lisboa Boutique, Cork

15 December 2009

Marie Harty, owner of Lisboa Boutique on 127, Oliver Plunkett Street is somewhat of a trend spotter. Three years before skinny jeans and ballet pumps were "de riguer" on the streets, Marie had them in her charming boutique.  She recalls that they were difficult to sell in the early days but that did not put her off bringing her forward thinking fashion trends  to her boutique where she mixes a variety of designer and affordable brands. Indeed, Christmas has come early at Lisboa Boutique as the sale has started and will continue into January with current items at up to 50% off and this is set to rise up to 80% as the sale progresses.

Designers such as Aideen Bodkin, Tara Jarmon, By Malene Birger, Hoss and Leona Edminston sit comfortably beside the up and coming Fever London and Rene Derhy.  Accessories are also catered for with Shira Jewellery and Tutti and Co. UK which has unique and funky pieces that are currently on sale from 25 and are perfect stocking fillers, as are gift vouchers which are also available. Shoes from Spanish label Unisa and leather handbags from Catherine Parra are also available.

Trendsetter Marie Harty gave her tips for savvy sale shopping;

"Buying in the sales is a great way to build your wardrobe for the coming year.  As well as picking up classic staples in the sale such as the ubiquitous little black dress, the key trends for Spring Summer are the navy and nautical look. The sparkles currently seen on many pieces will continue into the next season with lots of silver and stripes for the summer. A tunic bought now could be teamed with white in the spring and is a great transition piece for those difficult fashion changing months. The Asymmetrical theme continues and we have a great one shoulder dress from Yuki on sale for 99."

Now Savvy Shoppers have the secrets to create a Spring Summer Wardrobe at sale prices. Fashion followers have also discovered "Style Exchange" upstairs in Lisboa which is currently a hit with those who want to get something new from something old. Unwanted designer Christmas clothes/bags or shoes can be brought to the boutique in the New Year. Once the item is sold you get 50% back and if you exchange it for a Lisboa Voucher you will get an extra 20%.
