DID YOU KNOW it isn’t too late to grab a bargain in our winter sale?

Yes, really!

It may be Valentine’s Day, but spring definitely hasn’t arrived yet, so we’re letting the good deals roll on — and you should definitely take advantage. In the spirit of today’s holiday, I thought it would be fitting to talk about the biggest bestseller in this sale, and hopefully inspire you on your next shop with us.

The item in question, our community’s one true love, is (drum-roll, please) … the Fruit of the Loom Poly/Cotton Polo Shirt

We personally love it because it comes in fifteen different swanky shades and is made of easy-care pique fabric (which is ideal for workwear). But there’s so much more to it than that. With over 320 reviews on our store, and an average score of 5 Stars, I think it’s important that we hear what you, the customers, have to say about this particularly pleasing polo:

“Very nice fit, very good quality sizing is very accurate, very good value for money feels like a designer logo [without] having to pay.” – Oliver B.
“Quality Polo shirt at supermarket own brand prices. You can tell the difference as soon as you put one on. It is a little more snug than the medium I would expect but that will encourage me to lose the ‘tummy’. Overall very satisfied and will buy again.” – Paul W.
“Good shirts. Wash well and last quite a long time which is excellent for work shirts.” – Johnathan C.
“Bought two Fruit of the Loom Polo Shirts. Excellent quality and fit and a good price.” – David B.

So what’re you waiting for?! Check out our winter sales (and especially this Fruit of the Loom polo) while you still can!

Not sure what you can make with a t-shirt? Why not up-cycle, rework, or restyle it into a new garment or accessory?

Here’s our Top Ten to inspire you.

Necklace– Jewellery doesn’t have to cost the earth, and by reusing your old t-shirt it’s practically free.Try using different t-shirts to create this great colourful effect.

Bracelet– in keeping with the jewellery theme and not to leave your wrists out. You can buy bracelet and necklace fastenings and beads in bulk very cheaply from markets and haberdasheries, or you could reuse some beads from old jewellery too?

Turban Head Band– With two strips of t-shirt material and no sewing you can make your own turban headband, it’s too easy not to give this one a go!

 For a children’s party a fabric flower garland will add colour and make the day even more special.

Skirt– Recently, there has been a surge in popularity for re-using garments in different ways such as sweatshirts and cardigans for skirts, thankfully this also works for a summer wardrobe by reusing an old t-shirt. Using contrasting colours or a wide variety of coloured and patterned t-shirts can create a great patch work effect.

 Scarf– If you can make a necklace out of a t-shirt you should try the scarf too. These scarves make a great accompaniment to any summer wardrobe. The more adventurous seamstress might even want to go for a ruffled effect.

Dress– Got an oversized t-shirt on your hands? This can be transformed into an ultra stylish t-shirt dress with just a bit of cutting and sewing. You’ll need some elastic for the fitted style and ruching shown here.

Teddy Bear– Children’s toys can be expensive, why not create your own. If you have a favourite t-shirt or your child has grown out of a t-shirt that could be a great garment to create a teddy with sentimental value.

Bunting– Street party, house party, garden party, or wedding; bunting is a must for any celebration. This looks particularly good with floral or fun print t-shirts, but works just as well with plain colours.  Simply cut into triangles and sew to ribbon, lace or curtain header and you’ll have cheap yet chic party decorations in no time at all.

Tote Bags- Carry your new t-shirts back from the shops in your old t-shirt by making it into a tote bag! Alternatively cut holes into your t-shirt bag for a retro style grocery bag.
