Fashion: Urban Outfitters opens in Newcastle upon Tyne

It was well over a year ago when I first started hearing rumours that Urban Outfitters was to open in Newcastle upon Tyne and this month, that rumour finally became a reality.

Urban Outfitters Newcastle opened it’s doors to the public on 9th December 2012 just in time to make the most of the Christmas retail boom.

Taking up residence in a former nook of Eldon Square, UO’s Newcastle store boasts some impressive credentials: over 10,000 square feet of retail space across 3 floors, making it’s one of their largest stores.

Some of the fantastic women’s brands being stocked by the UO Newcastle Store include:

Cheap Monday
Evil Twin
Mink Pink
Petit Bateau
Something Else
Vaudeville & Burlesque

Newcastle has long needed a directional and contemporary fashion and lifestyle store, and I can’t count the amount of Geordies who’ve been rejoicing in the fact they no longer have to travel to Leeds or Manchester for their UO fix.

I headed down to the new store this week, so find out exactly what UO are offering to the stylish crowd of Newcastle.

The store is VAST, really a lot larger than I was expecting. Such a fantastic selection of womenswear, menswear, accessories, gifts, homeware and books. I saw about 20 pairs of shoes that I NEED including some gorgeous leopard print slipper loafers. I only had a limited amount of time to browse on this instance, so heading back to the store this weekend for a more in depth look.

And, finally, here is a sneaky look at a couple of the wondeful looks from UO’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection – a big thank you goes out to UO’s PR team who kindly supplied me with these images.

    Yeah it's the Henry Holland crochet dress – I didn't see in-store on Sunday, so guessing someone bought it!

    Definitely go and have another look round, I'm going Wednesday after work to buy a few last minute festive goodies.
