Survivors Guide to Christmas Shopping in Carlow

Halloween has passed, we are now officially allowed to talk about Christmas. We all know the key to a successful Christmas is planning. Or failing to plan and rocking in to Carlow town Christmas eve cursing the spread out nature of the shops. We have come up with a fool proof guide to shopping in Carlow town centre whether weeks in advance or on Christmas Eve at 5pm. 

Step 1 - Parking

There is ample parking in the town centre both in Penneys carpark and at the Potato Market. Both of with, coincidentally are right next door to Savana Boutique.

You can find us right across the road from the Liberty Tree.

 Step 2 - Shopping for the Men in Your Life

Detail Menswear  is approximately two minutes walk from where you parked the car and it has a wide range of menswear for dapper dudes of all ages. They also do gift vouchers if you are drawing a blank or don't feel particularly thrilled with the idea of choosing your uncle's drawers.

 Step 4 - Shopping for The Women in Your Life

Needless to say here at Savana Boutique we have a wonderful range of stock for Christmas for women of all ages. We are getting lots of new stock in over the coming weeks which will make ideal stocking fillers including items like hats, scarves, gloves, purses and giftsets. Check our facebook page for updates.We also have a really fabulous range of cosy winter jumpersand now also stock footwear. A personal favourite of mine is this cosy biscuit jumper by Fransa with an asymetrical pattern. It is toasty and looks super with a jeans and boot combo or layered over a skirt and tights.

 Step 5 - Refuel, to Sustain Your life

Now, have a break and go have a delicious lunch to congratulate yourself on such a successful shopping trip. We highly recommend BeaNice on Dublin St. Check out their facebook page for their daily specials. 

Perhaps you would like a little more tranquility with your lunch? You could pop up to Lennons at the Visual which is located in one of the prettiest areas in Carlow's town centre.


 Step 6 - Thanks Penneys.

The Neighbour you don't know that well but always drops over a tin of biscuits. Penneys. Your daughter's boyfriends' parents. Penneys. Your dog. Penneys. Everyone else you have ever met. Penneys.
