As well as the event for members of the public, which spanned the whole area of the outlet, with treat stations and red carpets dotted around Gunwharf’s beautiful harbourside location, there was also a blogger event in Las Iguanas prior to the shopping evening kicking off.
I had a Gunwharf Quays gift voucher and found lots of items around the outlet to tempt me into spending; there were some lovely dresses and light jackets in Jack Wills, some beautiful bright colours on show in Ted Baker, some great cosmetics and skincare deals in The Cosmetics Company and some rather tempting shoes in LK Bennett and Kurt Geiger. In the end, rather boringly, I opted for some skincare bits in Boots that I’d had my eye for some time, and some running leggings from Nike. I know that is not exactly in keeping with the theme of Spring fashion, but I had a 10k race that Sunday and needed some capri-length running tights to keep cool on the run!
Overall the event was a huge success and the outlet was really busy with people snapping up bargains and getting involved in the treat stations. I had a brilliant time and it was great to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones at the blogger event. A huge thanks to Grayling PR for inviting me, and to Gunwharf Quays for letting me hijack their Twitter account!
