I was recently invited along to attend the launch of H&M’s new store in Cardiff, with 25% off all products, a free embroidery service, mocktails and a performance from singer/songwriter Ella Eyre it promised to be a good evening.
The new Cardiff store is the largest H&M in the UK to date, the new flagship store offers all H&M concepts for women, men, teenagers and children as well as homeware and an exclusive beauty department.
I was most excited to see the kids and homeware ranges and they didn’t disappoint. There were so many beautiful clothes in stock for the older children, though there didn’t seem to be that much for the under one year olds.
As a launch event special H&M were offering a free embroidery service on any goods bought in store, so long as your total transaction came to over £15. I had hoped to buy a Christmas bib for Aria and have ‘Aria’s first Christmas 2015’ sewn onto it but unfortunately there weren’t any bibs, or in fact any baby clothing, with a Christmas theme. Instead I decided to buy Aria a beautiful stocking and have her name sewn onto this.
I couldn’t resist taking a photo of the special Welsh dragon shopping bags, I think these are fab.
We were given a goody bag containing a canvas bag, a notebook, pen, make-up bag and a H&M gift card.
I bought a few bits while I was there, I had to spend £15 so that I could have the embroidery, this was the perfect excuse to buy myself yet another Christmas cat sweater, this one is so awfully tacky it is amazing! With Aria’s first birthday fast approaching I couldn’t resist picking up these cute party hats.
Have you been to the new H&M store in St David’s, Cardiff? If so, what was your favourite department? Mine was most definitely homeware.
