Cheshire Oaks get set for Christmas shoppers

Some people like to spread their Christmas shopping across the year, picking up presents in July, and using the autumn sales to keep costs down in December. But the majority of us would rather not think about it until the days start to darken, which is also when bargains are scarcer and budgets don't stretch so far.

Although the lower price tags are the main reason for heading to Cheshire Oaks, the fantastic lights, entertainment, and choice of restaurants make it a proper day out for families over Christmas.

If you're keen to make the most of your present-buying money this Christmas, a trip to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet is a good place to start. Designer outlets like this, where goods are discounted all year round by up to 60 per cent, from one of the few retail sectors to have experienced an upturn this year – a trend that is expected to continue over the Christmas period.

No longer considered the realm of bargain basement rummagers and cash-strapped fashionistas, they've been attracting big crowds this year. The wide range of stores, the quality of the stock, and the well-presented environment have made them a popular alternative to the high street or standard shopping centres.

At Cheshire Oaks, it's not just designer clothes and shoes that come with a hefty discount. If you're buying presents for outdoor types, you can head to North Face, Tog 24, Fat Face, Regatta and Columbia Sportswear – one of the largest outdoor retailers in America. Or if you've got children's stockings to fill, a browse around Playtime Toys or Claire's Accessories is recommended. There's also a Music Zone Replay, a Past Times, a WH Smiths, and several kitchenwear shops including Le Creuset and Denby.

Beauty stores include Virgin Cosmetics, Revlon and Molton Brown. While those hunting for something sparkly to give their partner this Christmas can head to, Links of London Chapelle Jewellery and opening just in time for Christmas – TAG Heuer.

As the outlet has increased in popularity, the number of brands who want a store there has grown – Cheshire Oaks' clothing range is better than ever with loads of big name stores, from G Star Raw, French Connection, Karen Millen, Ted Baker, Henri Lloyd and Marks and Spencer to Ralph Lauren and Nicole Farhi.

If you're looking for a special outfit for Christmas, use their personal shopping service to find clothes and accessories that suit your shape, colouring, and budget. The service is completely free and they won't badger you to buy when you don't want to. It's a good way to get expert advice on styling and save yourself time – the personal shopper will search the stores before you arrive for outfits that fit your requirements. To book a personal shopper, just email personalshopper @ cheshireoaksdesigneroutlet.com

Although the lower price tags are the main reason for heading to Cheshire Oaks, the fantastic lights, entertainment, and choice of restaurants make it a proper day out for families over Christmas. Cheshire Oaks has Britain's largest Christmas tree, and they host a switch-on event to rival that of any city centre. This year, it's girl band The Saturdays who'll be doing the honours on Friday 13 November assisted by Mr Hudson and Basshunter. This will also mark the start of Christmas opening hours – you can shop until 10pm on that night, and from the 16 November until 9pm on weekdays, 7pm on Saturdays, and 5pm on Sundays.

To get to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, turn off at junction 10 of the M53. It takes about 40 minutes from South Manchester and about 25 minutes from Liverpool. To find out more, go to www.cheshireoaksdesigneroutlet.com.
