A day shopping with the family at Linen Green with Our Life At The Whitehouse

Wednesday, 18 November 2020

With things as they are at present, everyone is looking for ways in which we can lift our spirits, keeping positive and upbeat, and finding a little sense of escapism. 

If ever there was a time to benefit from some retail therapy carried out within a safe and secure setting, with all government directed measures in place it’s now, especially with Christmas fast approaching. 

Deciding to go somewhere special, perhaps to meet a family member or friend or maybe taking some time away on your own requires choosing a shopping complex and venue which covers all bases. The Linen Green caters for a whole range covering lifestyle, homeware, fashion, beauty, children’s, eateries and even has the potential for some pamper time....it sounds a wonderful place to me. 

The Linen Green is a shopping village nestled in the heart of Mid Ulster, on the outskirts of Dungannon, 2 minutes from Junction 15 on the M1 Motorway. Not having to worry about traffic congestion, often found in the city, or even paying for your parking, it’s only 45 minutes from Belfast and 2 hours from Dublin. Within my family we refer to it as a halfway point to meet, catch up, relax and shop albeit at this point of time shopping safely and sensibly.

Being situated with the beautiful Dungannon Park on its doorstep, it offers a wonderful shopping experience which factors in the whole family, especially when you get the husband on side as well!!

When I consider lifestyle and homeware goods, Bedeck is a fantastic store which cover each of these aspects. With furniture, giftware, bedding, home fragrance, and bathroom accessories it covers a magnitude of options. Featuring popular lines such as Nkuku, LSA, Belleek, Harlequin, Sanderson, Rituals, and Plum & Ashby it has so many favourites all under the one roof.

Choosing toy gifts for children is always lovely when you find items that are truly unique and different to what you will find in your usual toy shop and within Jo and Co you find a complete cave of treasured pieces. Such as wooden sets to allow for role play and imagination, ‘old time’ and traditional items which bring back the magical charm, including a whole range of carousels, figurines, fairy houses, hip and trendy giftware, dress up and so much more. Covering gifts for all ages, for both boys and girls at all price points, as well as having charming pieces for all the family. 

When it comes to fashion and footwear you are spoilt for choice - there is Simply Pink, Panache, The Rose Hanger, and Storey covering both men’s and ladies wear. 

Simply Pink Boutique is a ladies clothing boutique which stocks a range of clothing, footwear and accessories at really affordable prices. From tops, blouses, sweaters, skirts, trousers, dresses, scarves, coats, jackets and shoes; there are perfect pieces for not only yourself as a wee treat, but also great pieces suitable as a gift for a friend or family member. 

Many years ago when helping my Mum find the perfect shoes, bag and accessories for my wedding day was when I met Gareth and Janice, owners of Panache and The Rose Hanger Boutique for the very first time. On that occasion the care and attention for the customer was evident when they stayed open past closing to allow my Mum to get along. 

It is no exaggeration when I say that Panache is one of the most popular shoe stores in the whole of NI. It has a fantastic range of shoes, boots, bags and all the beautiful jewellery and accessories you could think of. With their attention to the customers needs and stocking all the major brands, as well as having footwear to accommodate all varying budgets, it is a true delight to browse and shop in their store. 

It was only in March this year that they opened their adjacent store The Rose Hanger boutique. If ever there was a boutique where you walked in and needed to stop and stare at the stunning surroundings before even indulging in the fashion... it is here. Boasting a picturesque Rose Fountain at the doorway, beautiful lighting, decor that combines industrial rustic, yet contemporary features and not forgetting the relaxing seated area with a cherry blossom tree leading the way to the changing rooms - it is evident how every small detail has been carefully considered in the design of this establishment. It’s a boutique which covers all style aspects - relaxed, casual, smart, dressy, occasion wear, and with a wide variety of brands and labels the choice is endless.

Last but by no means least, Storey Menswear and Womenswear is located at the very heart of the Linen Green which stocks a fantastic selection of stylish and unique clothing. The menswear features a great selection of labels and with Fynch-Hatton being a front runner it is certainly one that appeals to my husband. With smart casual dress to include jeans, trousers, shirts, and sweaters it covers all clothing aspects to have your other half smartly suited and booted. The ladieswear likewise has a vast array of luxury brands and labels. Very much driven by the changing seasons around me, I was drawn to the reflective palette of colours and textures finding myself focused on the cosy knitwear, tweed blazers and fluffy teddy bear coats, never mind the beautiful midi skirts and dresses.

When it comes to the aspect of summarising a day out at the Linen Green, I would class it as a relaxed and enjoyable unique shopping experience. Being able to plan a day out with your family whereby there is something for everyone, with eateries available for food and drink, a good mix of retail, situated beside a forest park, it ticks all the boxes for what you may be after. 

I would like to thank Synge & Byrne for kindly gifting our lunch experience for the occasion of this collaboration. Having visited before many times I know it’s an eatery which has a great range of food and drink options, with beautiful interiors as well as stylish features and lighting, it’s somewhere that you can spend some time relaxing, unwinding with your refreshments before moving on once again. Cafes are currently open for takeaway only, however they will be reopening for sit in from Friday 20th November, 2020.
