New Year, Same You (But Better!)

Posted by  | Categories: Uncategorized

Throughout January, it’s easy to feel a little deflated. The festivities are over, it’s cold and drizzly outside, and you’ve overindulged a little too much over Christmas – not to mention everyone is now tightening the purse strings!

However, you don’t have to jump on the ‘new year, new me’ bandwagon or participate in the latest craze of giving up things you love this January. However, it is the perfect time to make those little changes that you’ve been thinking about and beat the January Blues – whether that be for your home, your health or your wardrobe.

Healthy Eating

After a few weeks of cheese boards, Quality Street and pigs in blankets, it’s safe to say we all feel as stuffed as the Christmas turkey.

If you’re not looking to do a full detox but want to start the new year right by eating a little better, why not treat yourself to some new kitchenware to cook up a storm in the kitchen.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring – try roasting vegetables with a Mediterranean twist, get creative with flavours and marinades, or cook up delicious pasta dishes by making little changes like switching to wholemeal pasta.

New kitchenware helps you feel excited about getting into the kitchen and getting creative. We have some great offers on Stellar and Judge pans, ideal for batch cooking your favourite meals so that you always have something in the fridge or freezer to reach for, no matter how busy you are.

Not only is everyone on a health kick, but they’re also partaking in Dry January – not drinking alcohol for the whole 30 days! Get ready to enjoy a glass on the 1st Feb with our range of glassware in store.

Winter Ready Wardrobe

With jackets and coats, socks, jumpers and wellies in-store, your Winter Wardrobe need look no further than Wetherells. If you want to look cosy and stylish, need an item for a special event, or want to wrap up walk for them winter walks to clear your head and blow away the cobwebs, we have everything you could need.

With up to 50% of selected Ladies’ fashion brands including Joules and White Stuff, there are some fantastic savings to be had in-store. On top of that, we have 25% off selected night wear, perfect for those cosy evenings at home.

If you have any money left over from Christmas to treat yourself, we have 20% off all Radley bags in-store too!

Over in Menswear, we have a new launch perfect for upcoming events – especially now valentine’s plans are being made and wedding invitations are being handed out. We’re very excited about our new Marc Darcey collection, in-store now!

We also have up to 50% off selected items from Ben Sherman, Jack & Jones, Weird Fish and Superdry! January can be a little bit tight money-wise, so take advantage of some great savings!

New Year, New Home

It may be ‘Blue Monday’ but it doesn’t have to be! Cheer yourself up by planning what you’d like to do with your home this year. As the seasons change, it’s always nice to mix things up a little bit, so make 2020 the year you get all those little changes done!

Is there a cupboard in your house that has been driving you crazy? Sort it out. Is there a room that’s looking a little dated? Plan some time to really think about how you want it! A little goes a long way, so start with your soft furnishings.

We currently have 20% off ready-made curtains until the end of February, as well as 20% off towels and bedding! Changing your curtains and bedding is a perfect way to update a full room without decorating.

Keep the Fun & Games Going

Did Santa forget something important? Or do you need to get ready for February Half Term? We have 10% off all Schleich toys for a limited time only! Discover our Toy Department on the third floor!

Spring is here!

Posted by  | Categories: Uncategorized

How lovely is it to leave work while it’s still light, be woken up to the birds tweeting and enjoy some good quality time outdoors with the family?

As the clocks go forward this weekend, we can enjoy those longer days even more. Spring is finally here, and it’s time to get ready! At Wetherells we have everything you need to update your home and wardrobe for the new season.

The Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

Don’t forget Mother’s Day on Sunday 31st March!

Do you still need a last minute Mother’s Day present? At Wetherells we have an array of fantastic products that would make the perfect gift for Mum.

Do you want to treat her to a new bottle of her favourite perfume? How about some new make-up for the Spring season? We also have some fantastic new accessories in stock, from shoes and bags to light scarves and purses. When in doubt, a Yankee Candle will always go down well too!

Your mum deserves more than a bunch of flowers or a box of chocolates, so this year, find something she’ll love in-store – you could even book her an appointment at our Beauty Rooms or Hairstyles@Wetherells for the ultimate pamper!

Switch Up Your Style This Spring

At Wetherells we have a fantastic range of brands to suit all styles, ages and budgets. From new fashions to wardrobe staples, no matter what the occasion, there is something in-store for you.

With three bank holiday weekends to look forward to, why not plan a weekend away with the family? We have some great transitional pieces perfect for the British weather. We’re all hoping for sunshine, but of course we know that we’re bound to have a bit of rain at some point, so make sure your wardrobe is ready for anything that is thrown at you! Joules and Barbour have some perfect pieces to choose from.

Alternatively, why not host a gathering for friends and family and cook a delicious Easter-inspired meal, or if the weather stays as nice as it has been recently, even attempt a BBQ!

Of course, you’d need the perfect outfit. From pastel hues to Spring florals, our new collections in-store from brands such as White Stuff, Wallis and Dorothy Perkins have some beautiful pieces to choose from.

Don’t forget our range of lingerie, shoes and accessories too. You can find the perfect accompaniment to switch up any outfit and get your feeling ready for Spring!

This Season’s Make Up Must Haves

Come along and speak to our wonderful team on the beauty department to try something new, replace a Holy Grail product, or simply stock up on all of your favourite brands. With brands in-store such as Clarins, Elizabeth Arden and L’Occitane, and expert advice on hand, you’re bound to find what your make-up bag has been looking for.

When it comes to make-up, we’re all guilty of sticking to the products that we know and love. Our beauty department understands just that, so we will never pressure you into buying something you will never use. We want you to go away with confidence and excitement, ready to try out a new product that you will love for years to come!

As the weather changes, you may be tempted to dig out sweeter smelling products, lighter moisturisers and skincare products that you used last Spring/Summer – however, remember that may be past the best. Always remember to check the expiration dates on any products that you put away over the winter months and replace them. Moisturisers, face creams and eye creams usually last around 6 months to 1 year before needing to be replaced.  The danger with expired creams isn’t just that they become less effective, but can also cause irritation and possible bacterial infection.

Treat Yourself – You Deserve It!

If you’re looking for a little pamper, you can visit our Beauty Rooms for a treatment, or if you fancy switching up your look for the new season, Kirstine, Charmaine, Millie, Laura, Carly and their team will skillfully & glamorously style your hair just the way you’ll love at our in-store Hairdressers – Hairstyles@Wetherells! We use the very latest, tried & tested products from Paul Mitchell & Goldwell, together with styling tools from GHD.

A Hidden Treasure Trove

Our Toy Department is any child’s dream. We have everything from traditional wooden toys for babies and toddlers, to favourites such as Lego, Nerf, Barbie, Playmobil, Hatchimals and LOL Dolls. With the Easter Holidays coming up, why not treat the kids to some new toys and games to keep them occupied over the long 2 weeks with no school or homework!

We also have a pocket money range from only 29p, so bring them along for a morning or afternoon of fun whilst you’re out and about! You can spend hours searching the shelves for that perfect toy and they can have the opportunity to spend their own money that they have saved up from doing chores and being on their best behaviour. With all the Easter Eggs and treats to look forward to, it’s better than spending all of their pennies on sweets!

For the little ones, we also stock Halilit – a new range of baby and toddler toys. As the weather gets brighter and warmer, we have TAF sunshades, outdoor play mats and clip on pram books to keep them amused.

For Your Home

Statistically, a whopping 25% of us are planning to make home improvements, catch up with household DIY and do a big Spring Clean over Easter. Once you’ve finished cleaning the house from top to bottom enough to make Mrs Hinch proud, we can help you inject a new lease of life into your home!

If you’re in need of a new sofa or bed, our furniture specialists are some of the best in town! We stock fantastic brands such as Hypnos, Alstons and Parker Knoll – all that you can trust. With everything from rugs and drapery, to china and cookware, you can find everything you need to add that little touch of Spring to your home.

We have everything you need for Spring under one roof, so why not make a day of it? Meet your friends for a delicious lunch in the Arches Coffee Lounge, before shopping until your heart is content.

A massive thank you to the Selebian Singers

How nice it was to hear the Selebian Singers perform Christmas Carols in Wetherell’s department store this morning.

Their beautiful voices could be heard and  enjoyed throughout the store by festive shoppers.

Wetherells are proud to sponsor the local singers to assist their requirements for sheet music etc.
