Littlewoods Europe has announced the addition of a wish lists feature to its website

The wish list service is new to the Littlewoods Europe site and it allows customers to save items they are interested in and then come back later and purchase the items directly from their wish list, with the list keeping a record of the items which have been purchased and the items which are still to be bought.

The wish list service also allows the creation and naming of multiple lists for one account. This means that customers can organise lists in the way that is best suited for them, with a different list for different occasions or for different departments within the Littlewoods Europe online store.

The new wish list service offers a greater level of convenience for the shopper as items can be saved and returned to at a later time without having to search for them again or remember what item was previously searched for.

A spokesperson for Littlewoods Europe said: “We are very pleased to introduce wish lists on Littlewoods Europe. When shopping, you can’t always buy something as soon as you see it, whether it’s time or financial restraints. The addition of wish lists to our site means customers can save items they like and come back to them at a later time. There is also the option for multiple lists so you can get your shopping organised in no time. We hope this added functionality on the site will mean a better shopping experience for the customer.”

Topshop Launches Christmas Fashion Film

Topshop has launched its new Christmas fashion film, which highlights the key trends for this year’s Christmas period and the party season.

The festive fashion film is directed by Angelo Pennetta and features model Ashley Smith and stylist Francesca Burns showing off the hottest pieces for the Christmas period this year.

The video helps Christmas party-goers create some beautiful looks, whether they plan to stay in with friends or head out on the town.

Some of the keys trends this season include diamante scattered fishtail gown and sequin shift dresses which create the Christmas sparkle. Any look can be toughened up with the help of lace-up boots and chunky knitwear to help keep out the chill on the cold December nights.

The Christmas period is also about tassels and textures, so the addition of leopard print or faux fur can keep any outfit right on trend. And as its Christmas, it’s important to sparkle, so anything with sequins or gems will look perfect.

The new festive fashion video shows that a variety of looks can be created from Topshop’s latest collection, no matter what style customers are going for, as there is something for everyone. Looks can differ from beaded knits, leopard print coats and capes to party frocks with huge bows and pearl encrusted heels to the grungier look of ankle socks and lace-up boots.

Burton Is Celebrating The Resurgence Of The 80’s And The Reuniting Of Ska Legends ‘The Specials’, With The Launch Of A Limited Edition Tonic Suit

With the 80’s making a forceful statement on the high street once again, the men’s fashion world is drawing influence from many cultural facets, from art to music. To celebrate this new trend and the 30th anniversary tour of cult band The Specials, Burton has designed two new exclusive versions of their classic tonic suit and used key design elements from their archives to create the new ‘Mod’ suit.

More prevalent than with other musical styles, achieving exactly the right look has always been a defining part of the Mod and Ska movement. Sharp suits with precise lines and clean cut styling epitomized the look of 2 Tone, and now with the reforming of The Specials to celebrate their 30th anniversary, the look is also set to make its return.

Available in deep blue and charcoal, the limited edition suit is 100% wool and has an extra finish which creates a slight sheen to give it the tonic look. The style is a one button single breasted slim fit jacket with a narrow peak lapel, while the trouser is narrower on the calf and thigh and at just £99 makes it an affordable style essential for every man. Slim fit tonic waistcoats can be added to help finish the classic ‘Rude Boy’ look.

The Specials tour will see the 2 Tone Coventry Gangsters getting suited and booted again in their iconic suits as they tour 6 venues across England and Scotland in April and May.

The limited edition Burton Tonic Suits will be available in the Bath, Poole, Bluewater, White City, New Enfield, Portsmouth, Liverpool, Swansea, and Braehead stores, as well as online.

Burton announce VAT price reductions will be passed on to all customers from the 1st December

Following The Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling’s decision to cut Value Added Tax (VAT) from 17.5 per cent to 15 per cent, Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia Group has released a statement on behalf of a group of the high street’s most powerful retailers, confirming they will pass the full VAT cut onto their customers.

The change in the VAT rate will mean huge changes for all the shops in the Arcadia group, as all shelving and register prices will need to be updated. However, Burton, Arcadia, Mosaic Fashions, Bhs, Marks & Spencer, New Look and Next all confirmed in the statement they planned to pass the 2.5% VAT cut on to customers on Monday, or soon afterwards.

The group of retailers covers some of the biggest names on the high street, including; Topshop, Topman, Wallis, Dorothy Perkins, Miss Selfridge, Evans, Burton, Bhs, Oasis, Coast, Karen Millen, Warehouse, Principles, Shoe Studio Group, Jane Norman, New Look and Next fascias.

The statement by Sir Philip said: “Following the recent announcement reducing VAT from 17.5% to 15%, equating to a price reduction of 2.13%, we are pleased to confirm that it is our intention to pass the benefit of this reduction onto our customers.”

The price reduction will be given on standard rated product and will be applied on, or as soon after Monday December 1 as possible.

The statement added that this would, “allow for the complexities of implementing the changes required.”

It is unclear how the price cuts will be implemented, however many retailers are expected to take off the discount at the till point rather than by re-ticketing stock.

For Burton, all mens clothing, mens suits and mens accessories will be adjusted at point of purchase as of 1st December 2008.
