Well my love of Bicester Village is well documented. Some of my favourite things are from there; including my Vivienne Westwood scarf (which I've worn every day for the last 3 months, making its cost-per-wear almost zero) and my Mulberry notebook. Last time we were there I went knitwear crazy, buying a lovely metallic cardigan from Karen Millen and a jumper with fur sleeves from French Connection. And don't even get me started on the Cath Kidston outlet: it's like heaven!!
Mike and I have already made our festive trip to Bicester, and picked up fab presents for everyone on our list. (Sadly those people read this site, so I can't ruin it by sharing more details!) It's such a lovely place to go at Christmas: they have lights, late night opening, and The Christmas Tree House, which is serving warm mulled wine: Yummy! I think the right Christmassy atmosphere is so important when you're doing your Christmas shopping: it helps keep you motivated when your feet start to get tired!
For the festive period, Bicester Village are launching a new campaign called Festive Secrets. This is an online competition where you can win 3 different types of prizes (by completing tasks associated with bronze, silver, and gold reindeer). I found a gold reindeer, which meant I was entered into a competition to win a shopping trip to Fidenza Village in Italy. If you share the Bicester Village Festive Secrets competition on Facebook you earn your bronze reindeer, which enters you into a competition to win one of 10 £100 Bicester Village gift cards. And you earn your silver reindeer by recommending the site to a friend: this gives you the chance to win gifts from some of the Village's most popular boutiques! Why not give it a go? As the old saying goes, you have to be in it to win it, and it would be a lovely Christmas treat to win one of the prizes (fingers crossed!)
