It isn't often that Warrington is pinned on the map as a location for events; in fact, it was pretty unheard of until yesterday, when BANK Fashion opened their second ever women's only store (after the Liverpool store, which I blogged about here) in my understated home town. It was a breath of fresh air not having to catch a train to another city for a change!
As usual, BANK were celebrating the relaunch of their store in style, with stunning super blogger and model, Nada Adelle, cutting the ribbon and introducing the ladies of Warrington to a brand new shopping experience filled with cake pops, champagne, a DJ and the option to take a rest from their shopping with a complimentary manicure.
Cake pop in one hand and champagne in the other (and my camera slung around my neck in true blogger style), I re-familiarised myself with the store, which looks bigger, brighter and a lot more organised inside following its refresh. BANK is one of those retailers that I think has really improved over the years- Back in my high school and college days I never stepped foot in the store except for when Paul's Boutique handbags were all the rage (cringe), but now I even find myself regularly visiting their website for a browse through their many stylish brands, including Blonde & Blonde (those fringed loafers though), John Zack and Pink Soda, amongst many others. Also, how much have Ellesse stepped up their game recently? I love their take on pastels with their tennis print sweater!
