So before Christmas I received a lovely invitation from the folks over at BHS department store. I was informed that in January 2011 they would be hosting a spa viewing for the new lingerie collection for the store. Now I want to preface this by saying that I have never been into a BHS store. Am I ashamed of this? Well I wasn’t until just now. I am guilty of judging a store by it’s cover (or store windows as is the case here). BHS has never appeared to be a place that I would shop. I admit that because it’s important to realize that one can be so terribly wrong in their first impressions, with people and stores like. So you have me on the record as saying, “I was wrong.” From what I saw this week at BHS’ lingerie collection, I was dead wrong.
I spent a good while sorting through the racks of new pieces for Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter on display at the Dorchester and I was seriously surprised by what I found. That’s why these sort of press days are so important. We are introduced to brands we otherwise wouldn’t consider on our daily fashion rounds. BHS lingerie is something for you to consider folks. It’s inexpensive and yet the designs are actually quite brilliant and the quality is commendable. In this day and age I can count on my two hands the amount of things that are good value for money and BHS Lingerie has now been added to the list.
Here’s a quick look at what I saw on the day and I’ll post more images as I get them from the BHS PR. In the meantime, feel free to check out what they’ve already got online now.
I’d also like to say a big thank you to the Dorchester Spa who treated me to a lovely afternoon in the spa. I was VERY impressed with the gorgeous atmosphere (and have actually already scheduled in a couples massage for me and the boyfriend on Valentine’s Day as a result). I only took one pic in the spa as I was alone in the relaxation room (as I didn’t want to disturb anyone’s relaxation period)…
