Undoubtedly one of the first things I’m going to do this weekend is check out the sales along the King’s Road. An annual January sales trip always has to include the Clearance Sale at Peter Jones for home essentials and a trip to the third (kids) and fourth (gadget) floor. Though this year I may also take some time out for myself and stop at the first (beauty) floor too.
So along with the amazing sales along the King’s Road and on Duke of York Square, what else is happening this weekend?
If you’re in the mood for doing some Christmas shopping this weekend, there’s plenty going on in Chelsea.
Horse-drawn carriages around the area, carol singing, a chance to pop into the booked out Santa’s Grotto on Duke of York Square (half the spaces have been kept free for this weekend) and also some fantastic treats around the stores, such as …
… complimentary hand and arm massages as well as bubbly at Liz Earle, £25 off purchases over £150 at Links of London, complimentary party makeovers and gifts at Mary Quant, complimentary mulled wine at Gallery Mess and plenty more.
And if you are planning on doing some shopping, Duke of York Square have their own complimentary gift wrapping service as well as a foodie market on both Saturday and Sunday to pick up a gourmet gift or two.
Shopping: Two new stores opened along the King’s Road last week. Après London at No. 340. Think Hot Tub Time Machine arrives in Chelsea. This eye-catching retro skiwear pop-up will be open until 13th December 2015.
Also now open on King’s Road is & Other Stories at No. 72. Owned by H&M, & Other Stories womenswear retailer makes its Chelsea store its second in the UK.
Food: BYOB Mondays at The Botanist. Bring Your Own Bottle if you fancy eating out in Sloane Square tonight with your favourite tipple. Celebrate Thanksgiving at Big Easy (King’s Road) or Bodean’s (Fulham Broadway) for an authentic American BBQ night.
Culture: Todd Haynes’s latest movie Carol comes out on Friday (27th November 2015) and Cate Blanchett’s lead role is already garnering an Oscar buzz. This seems to be a film that’s one to watch.
Jamie Hewlett’s The Suggestionists exhibition is now on at Saatchi Gallery until 2nd December 2015. Known for his Tank Girl and Gorillaz artwork, Hewlett brings tarot card art, erotic cinema-inspired photography and a collection of drawings inspired by Hewlett’s recent time in the South of France, to Chelsea.
