Christmas Shoppers Should Go Online To Find Black Friday Deals, Says Parcel2Go

Britain’s leading online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has reminded shoppers looking for great deals on their Christmas presents this year to remember to capitalise on Black Friday on November 25.

The annual event, which marks the start of the Christmas shopping rush in America, is designed to inspire US consumers and get the tills ringing at the start of the festive season. But thanks to the internet, next week’s shopping bonanza won’t be restricted to people living in the United States.

Amazon UK is one retailer that is joining in to bring British shoppers deals on a range of goods from books and music to fashion and beauty products, and Parcel2Go has reminded people not to miss out. Amazon will be offering timed deals between Monday, November 21 and Black Friday on the 25th.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: “Black Friday might have begun as a US tradition but deal-conscious shoppers from the UK now have the chance to beat the Christmas rush and grab themselves a few bargains.

“Online shopping has completely revolutionised the way people buy presents at Christmas and as long as people make sure that their gifts are being shipped with leading couriers then buying online is a great way to avoid the queues at the tills. There are sure to be plenty of Black Friday deals to be had next week and by choosing to send presents to friends and relatives using Parcel2Go, shoppers will be able to save even more money.”

Anyone thinking of ordering goods from American businesses on Black Friday might find that some retailers will only ship to US addresses. Parcel2Go offers customers the opportunity to rent an American address and have goods forwarded to Europe with professional couriers such as DHL and FedEx, so buying direct from the US is no problem at all.

Richard added: “The US address rental service has become incredibly popular and we’d expect to see an increase in demand from European consumers as Black Friday draws closer.”

Bargains To Be Had As Shoppers Get Ready For Christmas And Save By Using The Latest Discount Codes And Voucher Codes Online

Consumers are expected to purchase more gifts online than ever before in the run up to Christmas, despite still feeling the pinch as the UK’s faltering economy struggles to pick up.

Sales via the web are set to rise by 16% this year and VoucherMole.co.uk, the UK ‘s leading voucher codes website, is urging Christmas shoppers to take advantage of the array of discount codes available in order to keep bills down.

“Despite people having less money at their disposal they’ll still look to splash out on gifts at Christmas as they won’t want to disappoint their friends and relatives,” said a spokesperson from Voucher Mole. “Also, young children don’t understand what a recession is and will still be asking for the same expensive toys – it’s difficult for parents to say ‘no’.

“That said, the beauty of online shopping is that discount codes are out there waiting to be snapped up and Voucher Mole can put them in the hands of the consumer. By making the effort to cash in as many discount codes as you can, costs can be kept much lower than expected meaning Christmas 2011 can be a good one.”

Meanwhile, Google has issued an article called ‘e-Retail Recommendations for Christmas 2011′ which offers advice to online retailers on how they can make sales to the bargain hungry user. They give three key tips, namely: businesses should prepare as early as possible (Cyber Sunday and Cyber Monday are on December 4 th and 5 th this year) and research what this Christmas’s ‘must-have’ items are; allay any fears about undelivered goods, particularly if there are severe weather conditions again; and ensure that websites are mobile and tablet friendly as more and more consumers are using such devices to shop.

“It seems that retailers such as play.com, HMV and WHSmith are keen to offer customers some good deals in order to ensure pleasing sales figures for this quarter,” added Voucher Mole. “With shoppers desperate to snap up discounted products in return, there’s every chance that – particularly regarding online retail – there won’t be the doom and gloom that everyone is expecting.”

Our team tracks down the best deals and passes them on to online consumers keen to save money on big brands. Voucher Mole is part of Wilsons Online Retail Ltd.

Cobalt Chrome Ring 2011 Award Winner

The WILLIAMS Cobalt Chrome Ring was voted by jewelers around the world as the winner of the prestigious JCK Jewelers Choice Award for Best Mens Jewelry. This cobalt ring measures a hefty 10mm wide, and features a series of cobalt chrome plates secured in place with 14K rose gold rivets. The cobalt plates have a soft satin finish. On the outer edges of the ring, the cobalt is polished to a high shine for a nice contrast with the satin finish on the plates.

The WILLIAMS Cobalt Chrome Ring is designed and hand fabricated by Heavy Stone Rings, located in Utah. Heavy Stone Rings takes pride in manufacturing cobalt rings and tungsten rings here in the United States, something most jewelry designers no longer do. The inspiration for the WILLIAMS Cobalt Chrome Ring came from the century old New York City subway systems with its rustic riveted iron trusses and beams. There is a masculine allure in the aged industrial metal work of these iron plates and rivets and Heavy Stone Rings sought to create a masculine men’s ring that would evoke similar feelings.

Equally impressive as the unique design is the craftsmanship required to make this ring. Each ring is meticulously constructed by hand by an artisan craftsman, and consists of 27 individual parts.

Currently the WILLIAMS Cobalt Chrome Ring by Heavy Stone Rings can be found at finer independent jewelry stores and online at Titanium-Jewlery.com. Also found at Titanium-Jewelry.com is The Williams Black Cobalt Chrome Ring. Similar to the award winner, but the plates are of Black Zirconium and the rivets are of 18K yellow gold, thus creating a very striking contrast.

Since 2002, Titanium-Jewelry.com has a reputation for carrying beautiful, award winning pieces that are perfect for men and women looking for both contemporary and classic design. Titanium-Jewelry.com carries jewelry made with modern metals such as titanium, tungsten, cobalt, and palladium. The company strives to lead the way by offering a great selection of quality modern jewelry and outstanding customer service. Not only is Titanium-Jewlery.com an online jewelry retailer there is an actual store located in Modesto, CA with gemologist and jewelers in house.

Burton Celebrates 150 Years Of The Tuxedo

Burton, leading British menswear retailer, has revealed several different ways in which the classic tuxedo can be worn. As the Christmas party season approaches, the tux, which is due to celebrate its 150th birthday, can be a key item to own. The tux is best known as a special occasion suit, traditionally worn with a bowtie; however, Burton has found that it’s more versatile than one might initially think.

According to Burton, the tux has become a cool and contemporary piece of clothing, and can be worn and styled in a multitude of different ways. For example, the menswear brand has declared that there’s no reason why one couldn’t wear a tux jacket with a casual t-shirt and a pair of jeans or chinos to form a more relaxed party outfit. Equally, a pair of belted Tux trousers can look just as sharp paired only with a smart shirt, tucked in and buttoned up to the collar. It’s important to add well polished formal shoes to any tux or tailored outfit, as scruffy shoes will devalue an otherwise well put together look.

For Burton, the double-breasted silhouette is big news, as it’s a new twist on the typically single-breasted tux jacket. Burton’s Navy Birdseye Tux is an option for those looking for an easy alternative to black, without stepping too far away from that smart, versatile colour which lends itself to suiting so well.

The dinner suit is often considered an investment that every man should make, as it’s the kind of classic suit that can be worn year-in and year-out. Though a mens tuxedo may seem like an extravagant garment, its innate versatility can make it a worthy investment. The dinner suit uses a variety of design details such as peak, shawl and notch lapels, enabling a range of unique tailoring options. Dinner suits also come in a mixture of fabrics, cuts and a grown-up colour palette of navy, slate, grey, charcoal and black. Pocket squares, bow ties and dress shirts with placket details and double cuffs can finish the look with style.

Some of the most unique pieces of tailoring that Burton has revealed are the velvet blazers, which breach the gap between casual and smart dressing, as they’re easily dressed up and down. The velvet blazer is something a bit different and can form the basis of a ‘desk-to-disco’ look.

With any tailored fit suit, especially the tux, accessories are important in creating a unique personal style. People can choose cufflinks, ties and bow ties based on their fashion point of view. It is up to the individual to decide whether to buy accessories as fashion pieces or as investment items. For those favouring bolder, on-trend, statement pieces, specs, braces and pocket squares are very fashion-forward accessories.
