John Lewis comes to town

Last night John Lewis Leeds opened the doors for a special preview to invited customers before the grand opening on Thursday.

The prosecco flowed, the canapes were delicious and the store magnificent.  Four floors of everything John Lewis  does to well.

Our first port of call was the haberdashery / knitting wool section on the fourth floor.

Which one should she buy?  Emma has a dilemma over knitting patterns.  Never before has she had the dilemma in Leeds!

Next stop was the Christmas shop on the 3rd floor…

After being tempted by Christmas we browsed the extensive household departments before heading off to the marvelous beauty hall, home to Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury and Creed to name a few.

Three hours flew by in an instant and it was time to leave.  Looking forward to Thursday when it all opens for real.
