It's Festival Time!

Doogie the dragon with titles

It's always good when June comes around because it signals the start of Summer in Melrose! First off is the Borders Book Festival when the town is full of book lovers and some excellent authors: Jennifer Saunders, Lynda La Plante, Paddy Ashdown, Kate Adie and James Naughtie to name just a few. Check out their website for full details.

Sunday 15th may see the book festival end but Melrose Festival week then begins and the town will be festooned with its colours of yellow and black just like Doogie the dragon in our photo! And, of course, we can't forget that it will also be Father's Day, so remember to pick up a treat for your Dad.

Last but not least, you can enjoy some super savings ALL month in our Summer Sale!

Present Perfect shop tree with blossoms

To emphasise the summery feeling, the shop tree has even burst into blossom! And at home we have managed to fill our planters with lovely colours for Summer so that's another good job done!

Sunday 15 June is the time for giving Dads a treat and here are just a few suggestions to show that there's life after socks and ties! From the more traditional cufflinks and wallet, how about some stylish desk accessories, soaps for pampering or even a candle in a masculine 'Tabac' fragrance?

In the shop we have all kinds of great gift ideas in a kaleidoscope of colours, of which this selection of photographs gives just a hint!

And what's even better, we have lots of super bargains available in our Summer Sale. You could save
