I may not be present at the opening of the first Cath Kidston store in Manila yesterday (k’se hindi naman ako invited, hehe!), but I made sure to check it out first thing today when it opens to the public. I’m glad that AJ and I were there early; I was able to roam freely around the store and get a closer look at the merchandise (and take pictures too).
Here’s my #ootd earlier (and basically my outfit when I’m not in my office uniform): Lacoste shirt, Columbia cargo pants, Fitflop sandals and of course, my Cath Kidston bag. It’s an open carry-all bag in Cowboy print, which I bought on sale from its official online shop early this year.
No need for visual merchandising techniques in this store at all! Each Cath Kidston product is sure to catch the customer’s attention, and because they’re so darn pretty, it’s impossible to leave the store empty handed.
I was welcomed by the sight of these pretty bags on display. A lot of shoppers are trying on the bags, so don’t be surprised if you find most bags on display in disarrayed state.
The bag selection for kids is just as desirable as the adult’s.
My two (2) most coveted prints right now: the London Buses and the Guards.
I was supposed to buy this travel wallet / passport holder during the last online sale but I hesitated. Now that it’s regularly priced (at P3,000++), I can’t afford it na waah!
Wallets, passport holders, ticket holders and other travel accessories. Perfect as gifts this Christmas!
Travel pouches. Also perfect as gifts this Christmas!
Cath Kidston Manila has a very good selection of home and kitchen items. I think I lingered here longer than in the other sections of the store.
Stanley the dog is so cute in this pie funnel, which is is placed in the middle of a pie when baking to allow the steam (from the filling) to escape from the inside of the pie.
A wonderwall of mugs!
So hard to pick only one design here. I personally like the London Buses, the Garden Birds (they remind me of PiP Studio too!) and the Mushroom Stanley mugs.
I should have gotten this tin can of sewing pins (even though I don’t know how to sew). Not only is it pretty, it can also be used to store the daily meds that I take while at work.
Office and stationery supplies galore! AJ was watching me like a hawk while I was browsing through the items here. He knows I have a weakness for paper and office products hehe!
Pencil erasers. Cuteness overload!
The store has fashion items available, too.
Of course, I have to have my picture taken in this Cath Kidston-inspired London cab standee.
I got two (2) book bags (in ‘Townhouses’ and the ‘London Buses’ prints), 2 travel pouches (with the ‘Guards’ print in one of them) and a foldaway bag. I wanted to buy more pero awat na raw, sabi ni AJ hehe! And because I was such a good girl, he gifted me with one of the bags I picked. Yey!
I was also able to avail of the 20% discount being given for purchases worth Php 5,000 or more!
More freebies from the store: Cath Kidston eco-bag and cupcake from Vanilla Cupcake Bakery! Thank you!
To celebrate the opening of its first store in Manila, Cath Kidston is offering 20% off on all items when you spend Php 5,000.00 or more. This offer is good today until tomorrow (December 7) only.
