At the end of each season it's sale time! Of course, we can't
guarantee a huge choice, as many people choose to buy their favourite items
early in the season, to be sure they get what they want for their
children. However, the Sarah Louise sale, the Dani sale, the D'Arcy Brown
sale and Mayoral Sale usually start at the same time - with reductions
mid-season and clearance sale towards the end of each season. So for cheap Sarah
Louise smocked dresses, cheap D'Arcy Brown, cheap Mayoral and cheap Dani
clothes, come to Cotswold Kids at sale
time. The Pampolina sale and general kids fashion sales
usually start at the same time. For Sarah Louise bargains, cheap cashmere
children's coats, Mayoral baby sale and designer childrenswear sale of Pampolina
and cheap christening gowns, come to Cotswold Kids and you'll get a great price,
if you shop at the right time, or look out for special promotions in our
christening wear sale.Choosing Kids Clothing - Tips and
When we become parents we take on a mountain of
responsibilities and one of these is choosing clothes for our children. Long
gone are the days when our only sartorial concern was how to dress ourselves, as
parents are not only responsible for their own wardrobe, but also their
children`s. Unfortunately, any parent will be able to confirm that clothing
children can be a tricky business, as not only do children need different things
from their clothes than adults, but they also have a (rather inconvenient)
tendency to grow out of them pretty quickly! With that in mind, here are a few
handy hints and tips to keep in mind when buying clothes for your little
If you are buying clothes for infants who are at the crawling
stage, then durable items are a must (particularly around the knee area!). For
little boys trousers made of materials such as cord or light denim are ideal, as
these are robust materials that will be able to endure crawling. A good example
of an ideal pair of trousers for crawling toddlers are the cord trousers.
When it comes to little girls, many parents like to put them in dresses, however
this is not practical for crawling and can prove both uncomfortable and
frustrating for an active toddler. Instead playsuits such as the Hatley pink
bears hooded all-in-one playsuit are ideal and just as cute!
toddlers are walking the things they need from clothing are very different,
particularly when they are potty training. Boys are best of wearing separates
during potty training, as this will make removing clothes much easier for them.
Mayoral boy`s pinstripe Bermuda shorts worn with a t-shirt or jumper, for
example, is ideal. When dressing little girls, dresses such as the Sarah Louise
pinafore dress are ideal for the potty training period, as they are practical as
well as looking rather sweet! Dungarees are great for boys and girls
alike, but are often difficult to source.
Another important factor to
remember when buying children`s clothing is the pattern, print and colour of the
item. However lovely white and pastel shades may appear on the hanger, customers
worry they`re likely to become spoilt very quickly. This is why we
recommend Sarah Louise in particular as a brand, as the fabrics they choose are
easy-care and wash time after time, always coming up like new. Some
parents would instead opt for deep or bright colours and bold prints, such as a
Ruth Lednik stripey hooded sweater for boys. It is equally important to take
materials into consideration – children`s clothing should be practical and
durable, so we avoid anything that needs to be dry cleaned, except of course for
the classic Sarah Louise cashmere coats and reefer jackets! Opt for simple,
classic designs – this will make clothes more comfortable for your children to
wear and make will certainly make it easier for little ones to learn how to
When choosing what footwear to buy your
children practicality is imperative, which is why Hatley rain boots are such a
great choice for little boys or little girls! Ideally buy shoes that fit but
that allow a little room for growth if possible and avoid anything that will be
difficult for little ones to get on and off their feet. Lastly, make sure any
shoes you buy your children fit them comfortably, as they`re likely to refuse to
wear anything that pinches their toes!
