Saw a lovely velvet coat in Monsoon today- like Boden ones last year- but they only had it in olive green. (small-ish store). Costs £75.

Has anyone seen it in a different colour?
Tried to call Head Office but no-one was answering....hmm

Look on the website, find the item number then call this number 0844 811 0068 (closes at 5pm).

They will search all of their stores and arrange for it to be delivered to your home (about £4 p&p iirc)

Thanks- but it does not appear on the website! (yet??)

Will call them anyway.

I have the black Boden velvet coat from last winter and I love it! I cannot wait to wear it!
The lavendar sounds nice though, I might have to go have a look. The Monsoon at Brent Cross is pretty big. I will let you know my verdict after I have been.

I got the Boden one last year but sent it back- I am quite petite- 8/10- and the collar looked too big on me.

They ran huge last year, so I was delighted to order a size smaller than usual. What was not to love about that??

Let me know if you see the lavender one b4 me- the olive is not really olive at all- it IS green, but I was hoping for a brown or blue shade. sad

Lavender one is in the Glasgow window today, but I'd say it's more slushy-grey than lavender. Not very nice, IMHO

Interesting- thanks! I quite fancy grey- but not sure.

Do you think Boden and Monsoon sue the same factories/designers- I think their things are becoming more and more alike.
