was on the laura ashley site a couple of nights ago ordering some items and came across this (bet the link doesn't work) anyway had already ordered some stuff from John Lewis but dh said go ahead order what you want and then said oh can you hang on for a couple of days till the credit cut off date (basically after friday what we buy goes on next months bill iyswim) i said don't worry about it just order the other items and forget the blouse (he took the huff) anyway he went to order it today and its sold out and i'm completely peed off. Its not often i 'fall in love with an item of clothing' but i really drooled when i saw the blouse, i'm going off to cry now

Get the hold of a few Laura Ashley phone numbers (it doesn't matter where) and give them the product number, if they have it in stock they should be able to send it to you, I have done this before with a coat.

What size are you after? on the webiste it seems to have all the sizes?? only in cream though

TheLadyVanishes · 06/07/2006 14:24

unfortunately when you get to the checkout it comes up sold out, but thanks to fimbo (a big huge hug for you btw) i rang my nearest store and they have it in stock so dh should be phoning them now and ordering it for me (yippee) now i hope it fits as i've never bought any items from LA before and i hope they aren't for stick people (no offence to anyone slim people out there)

It's a gorgeous top!
That happened to me last year when I saw a beautiful Coast turquoise embroidered tulle top for £45 from £75 in the sales and DH forced me to take it back!!
In the end, he felt so guilty for seeing me so upset that I was allowed to get it back!
Definitely kick him!!!!!!!!!
Is there a garment tracking number somewhere? Try obtaining one, you never know. Good luck.
