    December 10, 2013

    forfar christmas tree

    Full details of last posting dates for Christmas via Royal Mail can be found here.

    We would like to advise Frockery customers that last orders for Christmas delivery within the UK should be placed by midday on Friday 20th December, which is the last posting date for first class (recorded signed for) mail, or by midday on Monday 23rd December for special (next day) delivery items. 

    We will still be sending out orders until Christmas Eve and will be back at the frock face on Friday 27th December. In Scotland, we always have an extra day to recover from Hogmanay, so we will be resuming normal service on Monday 6th January 2014.

    Thanks to all our customers for their support over the past year. We wish you all a very merry Christmas and prosperous New Year.

  • Boho beautiful crochet

    December 8, 2013

    We recently came across a copy of the Sunday Post dated 26 December 1971 containing a fashion feature on crochet and hand knits which were immensely popular at the time (we older frockers well remember the original trend!) Fast forward 42 years to December 2013 and we are still finding crochet to be a boho beautiful addition to the winter (as well as the summer festival) wardrobe.

  • Celebrating the skirt

    October 13, 2013

    As we wave goodbye to this year's Indian summer and the nights start to draw in, we've been busy adding lots of new stock to our skirt department in a variety of styles and fabrics with something (hopefully) to suit everyone for the autumn winter season.

    In celebration of the skirt, we are offering a 15% discount on all skirts this week. To take advantage of this offer, customers should enter code SKIRT-15 at our checkout (expires Friday 18th October).

    We took a real shine to this leather one by GAP.

    And we love this  lime green suede skirt which still has its original H&M tags attached.

    Tartan and plaid are ideal for autumn and both of these are by Viyella.

    Pencil skirts are always popular.
