New Season, New Term, New You!

Posted by  | Categories: Wetherells News Category

As the Summer months draw to a close (although we’re still holding out hope for another couple of hot days to enjoy in the garden!), it’s time to think all things Autumn!

As we step into September, the kids (and the parents!) are looking forward to get back to school for a new term, and you might be starting to think about – well, dare we say it? – Christmas shopping…

But one thing is for sure, Wetherells has everything you need to make this Autumn and Winter fantastic, for you, your family, your wardrobe and your home.

Autumnal Hues and Cosy Knits

You may have noticed new stock sneaking into the store over the past couple of weeks – and it won’t be stopping any time soon! A new season means it is time to update your wardrobe with a few essentials to make sure you’re comfortable, warm and stylish during the A/W months.

With an array of autumnal shades and prints to choose from and new styles to enjoy in-store, keep your eyes peeled for this seasons must-haves from your favourite brands.

We have a new collection of Jack & Jones menswear in-store too, with t-shirts just £12 each, or 2 for £20.

Back To School Treats

Going back to school for a new year can be slightly overwhelming for some kids (and teachers!). Not only is it a new routine, perhaps a new teacher or new class, or even a new school completely, but after six whole weeks of relaxing, playing in the sun, snacking when they want and perhaps not going to bed quite as early as usual, it’s going to take its toll.

Why not get some treats ready for the weekends or for good behaviour. We have a huge array of toys and games, both big and small for indoor and outdoor use, to be used whatever the weather.

Beauty Tricks and Treats

The nights are getting a little darker and the temperature seems to be slowly dropping with a few more dark clouds in the sky than there has been previously – Autumn is definitely on its way. We’ve enjoyed another warm summer where staying hydrated has been the main aim – but your skin might need a little help to get ready for the colder months. We have an amazing selection of skincare to revitalise your routine.

We also have new makeup in-store ready to update your collection for the new season, including the new Autumn makeup collections from Clarins – the new Joli blushers are available in 8 stunning shades! Discover them in-store now.

We also have some fantastic fragrances to enjoy, including the addition of the brand new Jimmy Choo Urban Hero for men (with a free gift in-store until stocks last!). We also have the new His and Her’s fragrances from Jean Paul Gaultier – La Belle and Le Beau.

Come in and test them out!

Turn Your Home into an Autumn Haven

With Autumn just around the corner, it’s time to get your home cosy, warm and inviting for those longer, darker evenings. There’s nothing more satisfying than cosying up on the sofa with a good book or your favourite TV show and a warm drink when it’s windy and rainy outside.

We have a huge selection of homewares and furniture in-store for you to update and upgrade your home, no matter what your style. We have a soft furnishing department with everything from made to measure curtains to blinds to pillows, cushions and covers. Our curtain and blind department is second to none in Selby. You will not find such a selection of styles and an equivalent knowledge base or level of service anywhere else. Plus, we’re proud to now offer a 7 day custom made curtain service on selected ranges.

You can also find some great pieces of occasional furniture, beds, wardrobes and sofas in our furniture department, where our staff are highly knowledgeable and can help you find exactly what you’re looking for this season.

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.

VIP Thank you

Thanks for your support.

I’m extremely pleased with our latest charity fundraiser, the event was well supported by our customers, raising £482.00 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Charity No. 1084305.

The atmosphere throughout  the evening was lovely and during our fashion catwalk displays our novice models were applauded for their style and professionalism, you really would have thought they had stepped straight from a catwalk in Milan.

Delicious finger nibbles & snacks were prepared by our fantastic Coffee Lounge team and served with a choice of Prosecco, Old Mill Ales or fresh orange.

The event was organised by our department heads and brilliantly co-ordinated by my wife Rebecca.

My sincere thanks go to everyone concerned who worked tirelessly for weeks in advance and to our loyal customers who made the whole event as tremendous success.
