Stuck for ideas to keep the kids entertained at the weekends? Why not let them get stuck in to some fun crafts to keep them out of mischief?! Whether they love to cut and stick, sew, paint or bake, there are tonnes of crafty kits to get their hands on at Fishergate and create something special with. Visit Hawkin's Bazaar or Poundland for affordable favourites and novelty kits, or stop by TKMaxx for something a little more special, where you'll find luxury ribbons, scrap books and papers. Debenhams and Argos have a brilliant range of well known arty brands such as Crayola, Galt and Airfix, so if it's a colouring kit for toddlers, something sparkly for the little girls in your life, or model making for the boys, we've got you covered!
It might still be chilly outside but we're lusting after the gorgeous new arrivals that are hitting our stores for the new season. Debenhams has got Spring covered, with everything from pretty party dresses for special occasions, to cool casual wear for those off-duty days. Whilst we're sitting here making the most of our Winter woolies, here's what we're dreaming of wearing when the weather warms up!...
Smart Casual Whether you're looking for the perfect outfit for work, a great look for a day out with the girls or something to simply add a touch of Spring to your wardrobe, Debenhams has a huge selection of smart casual wear this SS15, perfect for mixing and matching. Florals (of course) are a staple for Spring, and this year we'll be wearing them head to toe on gorgeous jump suits! We absolutely love the printed trousers too, great for taking from day to night by cleverly teaming them with a simple shell top and a pair of heels. Of course in Preston, Spring doesn't necessarily mean sunshine, so we've got our eyes on some great cover ups such as checked capes and dreamy pastel coats! Shop some of our favourite ranges at Warehouse, Oasis, Red Herring & H! By Henry Holland.

Phase Eight and Jacques Vert have some stunning shift dresses and A Line numbers that are bound to turn heads and have you feeling fabulous. We're loving the lace pastel dresses and floral gowns teamed with pretty clutch bags, peep toes and, of course, a fascinator!

Wet, windy mornings, cold dark evenings ...sorry Winter, but we're so over you! It's time to refresh your look and stay a step ahead of the trend this season. Whether your Catwalk is the runway or just the office, add a pop of colour to your daily wardrobe and a Spring in your step this season.
We're loving candy pastels, from our make up bags to our nails and just for good measure a swish of eyeshadow to match. Not quite ready to make the transition from your staple red lipstick that was your old reliable last season? ...then get the perfect pout in coral, pink and peach tones.
Celebrate the change of season with Fishergate Shopping Centre, your one stop for all beauty needs and a range of treatments, from perfectly groomed brows to manicure pinkies.
No, we're not talking about the film phenomenon! We're talking all things fashion of course! When you think of Spring style, colours that pop in to your head will no doubt be pretty pastel shades reminiscent of retro candies, or bright and beautiful yellows and pinks that resemble the blooms of flowers that start to make an appearance this time of year. One colour you might not think of is grey, but in fact it's one of the biggest (and chicest) shades to rock this season!
This easy-to-wear neutral is perfect for those of you who might not be ready to brave the brights just yet, and is a great alternative to the classic monochrome trend we all loved last season. Think soft jersey tops, tapered trousers, sophisticated sandals and statement accessories. It's not just for the ladies either! Grey is a great shade for menswear too, and our stores are bursting with both casual and smart pieces in a range of shades.
For Her For day, team jersey tees and lightweight knits in pale greys with classic blue ripped skinny jeans, then add pops of darker greys with the accessories. A simple fedora makes a bold statement, whilst dark silver necklaces give a subtle dash of interest to the look. If you're looking for workwear, choose tapered high waist trousers in mid greys, and team with a crisp white shirt or basic tee and relaxed duster jacket. Grey can even work for night too - don a bodycon dress and pair with statement silver accessories for a touch of sparkle!
For Him When it comes to every day, comfort is key. Pick sweatshirt and shorts offer comfort and style in just the right proportion, and printed tees are great as the weather warms up. If sweats aren't your thing, grey denim is a sleek alternative to black or blue, and looks great teamed with hi tops for day or brogues for night. For workwear, we've got suits aplenty, in various fits and fabrics, and then of course there's the ties! We can't guarantee you'll get the same reaction as Mr Grey himself, but you'll definitely be on trend this season.
If there's one thing we love about Spring, it's pastels! Now that all the new arrivals are landing on the rails, we thought we'd hit the shops and pick out some of our favourite candy coloured pieces that are perfect for the new season! We're loving all things baby pink, cornflower blue, mint green, lemon yellow and lilac when it comes to injecting a subtle splash of colour back in to our Winter wardrobes ready for the Spring. Team pretty pastel blouses with denim jeans, a chunky knit and pointed shoes for a chic yet casual look, or go head to toe in pastels, colour blocking various shades for an evening out with fluffy fitted jumpers, A line skirts and statement heels. If you're not quite brave enough to go the whole hog, then opt for pastel accessories such as vintage inspired handbags, bejewelled shoes or a delicate necklace to add a pop to a simple outfit.
