Exciting news broke last year that Zara, one of our favourite High Street retailers, will soon be available online. About time too we think.
The Spanish chain revealed plans to be available online in the UK on 2 September 2010 and several other European countries next month. This means that you’ll be able to easily click through Zara’s on- trend pieces from the comfort of your own home.
As well as the UK, Zara online will launch across Spain, France, Germany, Italy and Portugal, followed by a roll-out across Europe in all Zara markets. There’s no mention of when they will go online in Ireland there, but at least we can look forward to buying from Zara UK’s website and hopefully, the keen sterling prices that go with it.
Luckily for all you homeware enthusiasts, Zara Home already has a website.
I was first introduced to Zara back in 2001 when I lived in Madrid. It was my go-to shop for work wear (fitted shirts and suits) and stylish winter jackets and coats. Their range of camy tops to go under v-neck jumpers, dresses and blouses is amazing as they come in a wide range of colours.
Coming home to Ireland in this stylish gear, always came with compliments from my friends and family until Zara eventually opened in Ireland and everyone else was able to avail of this Spanish style secret.
Zara’s take on shoes is always up-to-date with designer lookalikes, although I have to admit that I’ve never had a good experience with their shoes so I’ve stopped buying them.
