... that they were due to re-launch Per Una pretty soon, maybe in a month or so. Apparently it's going to go back to how it was in the beginning. Wasn't that under George Davis? I remember our local store being packed out then! Well it can only get better imo!

What will my Mom do now?
I think she has every flowery/floaty skirt Per Una have sold in the past few years grin

Per Una was nice, for a couple of months, when it first started. At the moment it is just a shambles, anything would be an improvement.

Has anyone seen the Indigo range in RL? was wondering what the verdict was...

yes I did today. Most of it was pretty normal M&S stuff, but a few of the tunics and cardis were nice.

Better stock up on applique tops now.
And those stretch lace patterned blouses.

I feel rather nauseous at the very thought of it.

I used to work with a woman who pronounced it "pru-ney". I nearly wet myself when I commented on a bag she had and she said "oh it's Pru-ney" and I thought, "well it's nice, nothing like a prune" and then she continued by saying "you know, at Markies"

My mum loves Per Una, but sadly she gets mixed up with Purina (the cat food) which can cause confusion and delay when asking for directions in her local branch.

99% of the Per Una skirts are way too long for me!
I do remember when they first opened, I really liked some heavily beaded jeans and was v upset when the fit was all wrong. I do still have a per una dress from way back!
