tuI love keeping up with the latest fashion trends but as a stay at home mum I don’t have a very large budget for splashing out on a new wardrobe every season. This means I need to be very selective and pretty thrifty. One of my favourite places to pick up a gorgeously designed and well made garment is Sainsburys, TU.

I am known to compliment and question/interrogate my friends  “Oh that is such a lovely top / skirt / jumper, where is it from?” Very, very often, the answer is Sainsburys and every time I am surprised, maybe because it looks so very lovely and designery that I can’t quite believe it comes from a supermarket! This Autumn Winter Sainsburys have really exceeded all expectations, as September saw the relaunch of their TU brand with a gorgeous new AW range. It is really stunning, expensive looking and such good quality.


Tu has revamped the brand to provide even more trend led pieces, as well as providing a stronger range of on trend collections and versatile essentials for the whole family. Encouraging customers to ‘wear it your way’ – Tu inspire with fresh new ways to tap into autumn’s key trends and help make your wardrobe go further.

There is also a commitment towards increased ‘newness’ with range refreshments happening every 6 weeks – helping bring ‘seasonal must-haves’ and trend led fashion to customers more effectively.


I was sent an outfit for both Littlelish and myself to review. We chose 2 lovely dresses and I also chose the beautiful navy wool cape (above). Let me tell you there is not one day that has gone by, that I have not worn my new cape. I wear it with everything, it is so versatile, I adore it! I will be showing you different ways to wear a cape, so you can “wear it your way!” soon but in the meantime here are our lovely dresses from TU.


She looks so cute in it, don’t you agree? The dress is a great winter party dress and would even make a lovely Christmas dress. The red shoes are just divine and so so well made. She has already had a lot of wear out of them, you can’t beat a gorgeous pair of red shoes can you?


I opted for the checked dress £22. It is a perfect dressed up smartly for in the office or as an alternative to a jumper dress with boots, tights and a thick knit cardi for every day wear. You can also wear it as a smart casual option for going out, I wore mine recently out to dinner. This seasons shape, the tube dress is actually extremely flattering. Being a size 14 and by no means a skinny minnie, I wasn’t sure if the length and the neckline would flatter me but I think they do, I felt feminine without exposing too much of myself. I also felt warm as it is made out of lovely warm (but not too warm), quality fabric. The check is subtle enough so you are on trend without wearing full blown checkerboard. One very happy customer here.

Thank you for sending us these outfits, Sainsburys, we are thrilled to bits with them! Check out the full AW range at Sainsburys TU now.
