At PacificPlex.com, we are offering big savings during our Cyber Monday sale, a sale that will only last as long as the merchandise does. It’s our customer’s best opportunity to get the formalwear they want for the best prices of the year.”

So great is the anticipated demand that the retailer has taken the unusual step of creating a ‘lady-in-waiting list’ to allow customers to reserve the departments store’s homage to Pippa Middleton’s iconic figure-hugging bridesmaid gown.

And for fans of Pippa’s style the retailer will also be selling a version of the emerald green evening gown that Kate’s sister wore to the evening ‘do’.

In addition a black lace sweetheart frock and a flower girl dress, all inspired by Kate Middleton and her breath-taking bridal party will go into stores later this year as well.

Russell Fish, Head of Occcassionwear Design at Debenhams commented: “Like everyone we were glued to our tellies for the wedding and have been huge Kate and Pippa fans ever since.

“We’ve taken the best of the dresses and added our designer twist. Now you can get the Middletons’ look at High Street prices.”

Debenhams’ slender ivory gown is a slinky, cowl neck number with a button-back detail and elegant cap sleeves.

An ivory flower girl dress will also launch in store to sit alongside the sleek adult gown. Featuring a delicate lace trim, puff sleeves and a pale gold sash tied in a sumptuous bow at the back, with retail prices varying depending on age.

An emerald green evening gown, with embellished neck detail and a full, floor length skirt perfect for dancing is the final gown which will hit Debenhams stores this autumn.

Debenhams is also launching a black mid-length evening gown, inspired by the dress worn by the Duchess of Cambridge on her wedding day. Featuring intricate lace detail and trim, the full-skirted prom dress is a classic take on this timeless style women everywhere want to emulate since the royal wedding.

Alain Mehada, Chief Personal Shopper, Debenhams Oxford Street added: “Both men and women everywhere were instantly talking about Pippa, so naturally brides-to-be will want to emulate her classic look, both for themselves or their bridesmaids.

“We have been inundated by customers asking if we have anything similar to the dresses worn by Kate, Pippa and the flower girls, but the ivory dress worn by Pippa is the most requested by far.”

Sales boffins at the retailer predict that these dresses will follow in the footsteps of a Star by Julien Macdonald dress that sold out before even reaching stores after fashionistas heralded the design as the look of the season a couple of years ago.

Debenhams Finds Out How Fashion Suffers As The Week Goes On

Debenhams research reveals women take 36 minutes longer to get dressed for work on a Monday than on any other day of the week, new research shows.

According to the Debenhams study results, extra time is devoted to perfecting their hair, make up and clothing so that they can be sure of making a good impression on work colleagues. However, standards slip dramatically with each passing day, so that by the time Friday comes, the time spent on their appearance has slumped to just one quarter of the original figure.

Debenhams spokesman Ed Watson said: “Many women clearly experience a major fashion deficit as the week goes on. For some it’s a swift journey from Cheryl Cole to Nora Batty – in just five days.”

The data emerged during Debenhams network of personal shopper studies into women and men’s dressing habits throughout the week.

The results show that women spend, on average, 76 minutes getting ready for work each Monday morning. Twenty three minutes of which will be devoted to their hair, eighteen minutes on make-up, sixteen minutes to trying out different combinations of clothes with the rest taken up by showering and washing. However, this figure falls to just 40 minutes the following day, with time spent on hair falling to 12 minutes, with make-up and deciding what to wear both dropping to 9 minutes each.

By the time Friday comes, the total time spent on getting ready has collapsed to just 19 minutes – a quarter of the original figure. Instead hair preparation takes six minutes, make up just two minutes and deciding what to wear just one minute. Time spent in the bathroom remains constant at an average of ten minutes regardless of day of the week.

Men, by comparison, take on average 28 minutes to get ready on a Monday, a figures which slumps the very next day to 14 minutes before falling to a constant low of eleven minutes for the rest of the week.
