Summer Hallidays


Hi there!

Firstly I hope you all enjoyed the Easter break. School’s out, the weather has taken a turn for the better and things are definitely looking up, even though at this present moment in time I am wading through a suitcase of washing that my son brought back from university for me!

It’s a quick turnaround as we are off to Spain for a few days, so the washing machine is currently on overdrive, I think I seem to have some of his flat mates washing too as I’m not recognising half the stuff I’m washing, plus so far I seem to have 11 odd socks that are all looking for a friend!

Now the clocks have changed and Easter has been and gone, the summer seems as if it’s well on its way and there is no more welcome sight to QVC at this time of year than the lovely Richard Jackson. In case you weren’t aware, Richard currently has an amazing offer on Flower Power on QVC as it’s our Gardening Pick of the Month for April.

Richard has been our gardening expert for many years on QVC and his high profile career has allowed him to be in the enviable position of developing his own range of professional grade, performance lead, gardening products for us to easily use at home. Flower Power is probably the most iconic of them all, but take a look everything in Richard’s range as he has the know how to tackle everything from boosting root systems to taking special care of your roses, killing those pesky weeds and has just launched something brand new, which will transform your lawn in just 24 hours!

Plus, you can even get Richard’s beautifully fluffy, scientifically designed, all purpose fertiliser delivered straight to your door too. Of course, whatever you decide on, definitely don’t miss out on the Flower Power offer, it has become nothing short of iconic within the gardening world.

A super plant food that will feed absolutely everything from, hanging baskets and patio pots to summer bedding, all of your shrubs, house plants and even fruits and vegetables too. The Pick of the Month price is superb, Richard was astounded, as the price is even better than his own website!
It’s zero postage too and Flower Power has an indefinite shelf life so it’s worth stocking up on, but hurry the offers ends at the end of April.

So, our little break in Spain has really put me in the holiday mood. We went to Portaventura, which is a theme park complex just outside of Barcelona. We first stumbled upon the theme park about 10 years ago and have always wanted to re-visit. Although not hugely well known the park is vast, with many different lands and is very Disney-like with rides and roller coasters of epic proportions. There are several onsite hotels and if you like this this type of mini break, I’d highly recommend it.

For us as a family it’s a chance to enjoy some quality time together. I’m not sure I’ll ever quite get used to Taylor being at uni, even though I have to say the time has flown by and I can’t believe the first year is almost coming to an end.

Even though this was a mini break, I have decided that our old battered luggage really has seen better days. Not only that, I invested in a little set of luggage scales and only then did I realise how heavy my old cases were! Nowadays when you pay so much for baggage the last thing you want to being doing is paying for a heavy case. If I had lighter cases I could fill them with so much more! So thank goodness that Heys luggage is on the horizon with a Today’s Special Value Offer that will ensure we can pack to the max and make every penny of our baggage fee is spent on the contents not the case.

Available in five gorgeous colours, grey, teal, yellow, wine and white (I have my eye on the white to show off my tan, ha!) the Heys Duraflex luggage offer launches this Thursday and this lighter than ever three-piece set is sure to be a winner. Heys luggage have truly mastered the art of developing feather-light cases that are so durable you can even stand on them, thanks to the technology that is Duraflex so be sure to watch the on air live demonstrations, you won’t believe just how tough these cases are!
Once you have invested in a set they will last you for years.

The four wheels on the TSV set is also a huge bonus allowing you to easily stroll through the airport without the need for luggage trolleys or trailing the cases behind you and of course the set nests neatly in between those hard earned holidays.

Don’t forget there’s a different TSV on QVC every single day, so don’t forget to just tune in, tap the app or check the website for details. Also up this week, on a TSV offer, is a fabulous health supplement deal from Inner Health Beauty From Within, a stunning set of colour changing crystal solar lighting from Solithia and the launch of the Gatineau Summer Body Ready collection, which features on Beauty Day on Sunday as part of The Great Beauty Event!

I love Beauty Day, the sheer indulgence of a whole day dedicated to the latest cosmetics and skincare is my kind of Sunday, although this Sunday I’m at a dance competition with my daughter so I’ll have to catch up once I get home. However, everything is on four Easy Payments, so be sure to save me something!

Before I say goodbye while you are browsing our TSV offers and Beauty Day event prices, take a look at this week’s Big Deals, there is something for everyone – but hurry, offers end on Sunday!

Happy shopping,

Jilly xx

    Hi Jilly, I wonder if you could help me? I was watching you and Katy Pemberton presenting a Lulu Guinness show the other night and I noticed a beautiful kingfisher ring that Katy was wearing. Would you be able to ask her where she got it – it looks like a Butler and Wilson design but when I checked your website I couldn’t find it ☹️ I’d be very grateful if you could help.
    Thanks very much.

    Hi Jilly, so sorry – I owe you an apology – I have just realised that my message to you regarding Katy Pemberton’s ring should have gone to Alex Kramer. Really sorry – blame my age and the menopause!!
    Best wishes

    Hi Erica, not to worry. I hope you manage to track it down. Take care, Jilly xxx
