Boden Party Preparations....

This time 3 weeks, I'll be sitting with practically all of the new Boden winter stock in my home, ready for my party the next day. I'm a bit worried thinking about it but I know it will be easier 2nd time round and I'm once again lucky to have lots of help from my friends.

In preparation for the party, I'm taking advantage of the 20% offer that runs until midnight tonight, to order something to wear at the party. To compensate for the upheaval, Boden supply their party hosts with a £50 voucher to purchase something from the winter range and this code allows me to sweat that asset a bit!

So this is a quick post to share what I've chosen to wear - it's the Easy Pocket Dress in the Pewter colourway - down to £55.20 with today's discount. 
Easy Pocket Dress in Pewter
It's going to look lovely (hopefully) with tights and my grey ankle boots. 
And just to make it worth Johnnie's and the postman's time, I've ordered this top from clearance:
Wrap Jersey Top in Navy Carnation - £14
I love the weight of these jersey tops and I saw a friend wearing this colour way recently. For £14, it's a no-brainer. I sized up to the 12 as I tried this on at my party and found it came up on the small side. 

And Boden tell me the following are this week's bestsellers on their site..

You can get your 20% off using the link in the image below until midnight tomorrow (Thursday). But don't fret if finances are tight and you can't avail of it now - I'll have my party 20% code in the next week or two and can supply it to any of my readers. I'll let you know via the blog when it arrives with me


  1. I love the dress you have chosen. I can't wait to see you in it! xxx Love Liz xxx

  2. I tried the dress in mustard but the waist was a little too low on e - I suit more of an empire line. Hope it looks fab on you as I was gutted it didn't work for me :-( good luck with the party! Lynne x

    1. Thanks Lynne - yes, it might be ok on me then as I'm longer in the body. Fingers crossed xx

  3. Can't wait to see that dress on you! I'm sure it will be fab ... as indeed will your Boden party!

    1. I hope so Helen - getting nervous about all the planning now but I enjoyed the last one so much xx

  4. Hi Avril

    I am looking forward to getting my hands on your code. Are you donating your commission to charity again? I am going to be organised and get my Boden Christmas shopping done early.


    1. Thanks Claire - yes, after costs, I'll be donating half of my commission plus any donations on the day to the MS Society x

  5. This dress is really cute! Can't wait to see it on you and to bug you for the code :)
