Now that the dark nights are drawing in, we’re turning our attention to other things: cosy nights indoors, elaborate warming suppers, evenings spent mooching around the shops.
Why not do the same on a short break at Center Parcs? Our range of shops carry everything from the latest fashions to children’s toys to handmade fudge. If you’re joining us this autumn, take an hour after a busy day to enjoy some retail therapy – perhaps get ahead with the Christmas shopping.
The latest lines for autumn/winter have just arrived, so we’ve brought you an exclusive look at some of our favourite pieces.
Time for Shade
Glittering jewellery and stylish watches are the order of the day at Time for Shade.
New for this season is the very first Orla Kiely Time Collection. Every piece shows off Kiely’s signature sixties vibe and famous sophisticated colour palette.
If you’re hankering after something more classic, take a look at the new range from Henry London. These old school, androgynous watches are inspired by post-war craftsmanship and old-fashioned, quality watchmaking.
Looking for a show-stopping Christmas present, or simply fancy splashing out on yourself? The latest pieces from Links of London could be just the ticket. The Timeless Collection celebrates the brand’s 25th year and is inspired by the iconic face of London’s Big Ben.
Also check out the Stardust pieces, one of Links of London’s bestselling collections. These shimmering pieces are made of an intricate mesh of rose gold, yellow gold or silver. They come in rings, bracelets and earrings, with various cubic zirconia pavé embellishments – there’s a variation for every taste.
The new Climaheat range from Adidas has hit the shelves in Sportique, and we’re stocking up to keep our fitness motivation high during the cold months.
The collection covers everything from leggings and base layers to jackets and even running shoes. Each piece is designed with cosy fleece and their climaheat insulation, which features hollow-core fibres inspired by animal fur. The technology uses your own body heat to keep you warm, while quickly wicking sweat away so you stay dry. Perfect for those puddle-splashing, cheek-pinching winter morning runs.
Packed with wonderful brands, Spirit is always worth a browse when you’re visiting us at Center Parcs. And the new lines for autumn/winter look like some of the best yet…
The new Fat Face collection is full of classic pieces, easy tailoring and casual favourites, all in line with their ethos of designing clothes that are meant to be worn and lived in, not just looked at. Deep burgundy, taupe and sea foam green shades compliment the dark denim looks for autumn.
Need some arm candy to go with that new outfit? Fiorelli and Radley have that base covered with their newest pieces. Butter-soft leather and bold colour-blocking in merlot and black are the name of the game at Fiorelli.
Radley brings its signature whimsical design. The new season’s ‘picture bag’ is inspired by walking through an art gallery, and features the familiar Scottie dog tag. Other new pieces from Radley include classic tan leather messenger bags and bold, polka-dotted satchels.
Meanwhile, the latest drop from Joules doesn’t shy away from bright colours. The whole collection, called The Walk, is inspired by a weekend stroll through the English countryside – that ticks all our boxes here at Center Parcs. There are cozy jumpers, stylish wellies, bright waterproof jackets and Joules’ signature country garden prints. These pieces below are some of our top picks.
It’s just as well the name of our Village toy shop isn’t a hard and fast rule, as we reckon this new line will go down pretty well with the big kids too!
Ahead of the release of the new Star Wars film (Episode VII – The Force Awakens) in December, we’ve stacked the shelves with the fantastic new range of Star Wards Lego.
From Darth Vader buildable action figures to Millennium Falcon models, there’s something for all ‘Wars fans – whether they choose the light or the dark side…
When you’ve shopped until you’ve dropped, you can pop into Starbucks on the Village for a post-splurge refuel. Pumpkin spice latte, anyone?
