There was an event for bloggers to attend to celebrate Todd Lynn's collaboration with Debenhams, but unfortunately due to my train home I couldn't attend so instead decided to go have a sneaky peak at the revamped store.
The wonderful press team escorted me around the various departments along the 5 floors. I'd already had a flavoursome coffee in the basement coffee shop, where to be quite honest I didn't feel I was in a Debenhams I felt like I was at a plush tea room. Whilst we explored I came across one of the two restaurants which looked super sleek and very inviting, I only saw a few ediable items on display but what I saw looked delicious.
We continued to explore the along the 5 floors and the main thing I noticed was how easy it was to locate brands/items you were looking for. It really didn't feel like any standard department store!
As you may be aware I bought a house this year so a lot of my time and money has gone into making that a 'home', so instead of turning my nose up at house related brands I literally jump at them! This one I spotted whilst venturing about Debenhams really caught my eye, it is a company called Bloomingville and is absolutely full of interesting pieces perfect for home bits!
As we continued on I just had to take a quick snap of the first ever plus size mannequin, she is the 3rd along and looking beauitful in her ensemble!There was even a complete bridal area which makes it easier for shopping for your wedding dress. It had a seating area and even though it was in a department store it was tucked away giving brides to be an intimate, relaxing experience.
Last but not least I wanted to take a picture of the 5 floors from a basement view... doesn't it look wonderful? You can see at the top there is a glassed roof which would normally let in bundles of light, however being that it's winter by the time I visited it had already gone dark. The one thing I will say is that the new Debenhams is so bright and spacious it makes your shopping trip far more relaxing and you'll want to literally spend the day!
