It's French MIL's birthday on Friday, so had ordered this silk scarf to be delivered to her. It's been discontinued angry and they've only just told me.

So, wise S&Bers, here's what I need:

-A silk scarf or something equally as lovely
-It MUST be red or have red on it.
-Be under £70
-Be able to be gift wrapped and delivered straight to France by Friday.
-Preferably from somewhere typically 'English' IYSWIM, nice wrapping etc.

Erk. Not easy.

Can anyone help?

Anything from brora?

Thanks- but I think they're a bit too casual. And no red.

No others from aspinall?

Liberty scarf selection is good and has a sale. But sadly I think very slow with delivery. So would only work if you can go to the store.

I know it's stretching your budget, but are any of these from the outnet any good? Delivery with them is quite good and customer services are FAB.

quite a bit below your budget and quite a few with red in them but any good

Not clear if they can deliver to France from the on-line site, but they do have stores in France so might be able to send direct from store?

Can you get to any shops? Nothing about delivery abroad but Hobbs have a few.

Any of these? They do a 2-3 day international delivery

Thank you so much for looking smile

I ended up ringing round stockists and found the original one in Selfridges.
