August Already…

by Lisa McGowan

Like seriously can you believe that it is August already. I actually cannot believe how fast this year is going girls. We are always working a few months ahead and writing blogs ahead of time so sometimes I genuinely don’t even know what month I am in….We have a super busy month ahead girls with new additions and some of the brands that I have worked with back again on the website so lot’s for me to show you all.

‘I have to say it feels great to have had my vaccine and it almost allows you a level of freedom. I don’t know about you all but I feel better for sure knowing I have it…..’

It is so great to be able to go out and about and now dine inside, stay in Hotel’s and just socialise in general again. You almost forget that you are permitted to do so, anybody else feel a little like that?

We are hoping to have our live shows back early next year. I really really miss the live shows and meeting you all. We always have such fun at the events and it is such a great opportunity for me to meet you all in person. It’s also a great excuse for us all to get away for the night and to get all dressed up. I really hope that I will be able to share some exciting news with you all on venues ,dates and locations in the coming months.

August is also my Birthday month….. the last one in my 40’s girls.. I have no plan made yet but am hoping to do something nice. Chris has his big one coming up in September  so I better get the thinking cap on as well and come up with a plan. I find it so hard to buy for him, he is very particular and sure you know me I like most things. Maybe I should book a weekend away or something, that way I benefit too lol…Anybody else find it hard to buy for their partners? He may start thinking about my big one next year girl’s….

Jeez I cannot believe I will be 50 next year but age is but a number. I still feel 30 and sure that’s what it’s all about. I really am trying to be kinder to myself and to try and relax a little more. I think us women can be very very hard on ourselves. We try to juggle work and family life and give ourselves very little time out. We are all constantly multi tasking and trying to be in almost two places at the one time? It’s quite hard to train yourself to switch off a little more but I am really going to try. It is so important for us all.

Later in the month I am hoping for a restock on my Loungewear girls. I am still in shock that it sold so quickly. I will keep you posted on when it is due to land during the month. I still have some sizes left but lot’s more landing later in the month. Click here to buy..


Looking forward to the chats and fun throughout the month.

What’s New for August?

Huge big welcome to Born, my feature store of the month for August. I am so happy to have you and just love the looks we are showing this month. Born, another hugely successful Irish Boutique chain led by Joan Lynch and her team. It’s so great to see you opening new stores Joan and I really admire how you run your business. The looks are always so current and the value that you offer is second to none. I actually have said a few times I don’t know how you produce the quality for the price point. Girls I hope you love the looks as much as I do. It was great fun trying them all on and styling the looks, looking forward to seeing them on you all during the month.

What a few months we have had girls with Richard, Louise and the Pamela Scott team. The looks over the past few months have been incredible and I know you all loved them just as much as I did girls. Richard was ordering and re-ordering to keep up with the demand from you all. I have great looks again this month from Pamela Scott with three complete crackers coming.
Welcome back Nina’s… what can I say girls. We all totally went crazy for the Naya cargo trousers. I am not joking when I tell you I have lived in them over the last few months. They are so cool, light and easy to wear. Helen is a dream to work with and she knows exactly what I like and our styles are so, so similar. We worked on our looks for August a few months back and I hope you love them all as much as I do.
Welcome back to my website iCLOTHING. It is really great to have you back on the site. August is a busy, busy month for fashion and such strong looks across the board. I have worked with Abbas in iCLOTHING for a good few months now and each month it just keeps getting better and better. iCLOTHING again another Irish success story. Can’t wait for you to see the looks for August.

Well Rachel what a sale you had last month. You blew it out of the water girl just fabulous I have to say amazing. As you all know Rachel is working with me from the very start of the website and every month we both decide on all the looks. She has an amazing selection and it really is great to be able to support a small store based in Bantry in Co. Cork. We always have the craic Rach and this month is another cracker.

Welcome back Mark and the Shoe Suite team. Lot’s of you are very familiar with the Shoe Suite as they have locations all around the Country. I had lots of messages from you all saying how happy you were to see them on the site. They again are another great Irish company. Mark works so so hard at getting me the correct looks and the handbags are to die for girls. Happy shopping…

Great to have Derek back on the website this month again. The Montgomery Lifestyle crew are just so innovative and every month they have a brand new product to launch. They are so unique and constantly thinking outside the box. I have so much admiration for Derek and his team.

I really hope you enjoy the fashion and style that I have chosen in August girls. I really try hard to keep it fresh and fun and put lots of time into getting it right. Looking forward to your feedback on it all.
Chat really soon,
Lisa xx
