A couple of weeks ago, Thomas Sabo invited Sotonbloggers to come down to their new store in West Quay, Southampton and find out more about their collections. The event was scheduled to start for 11am where we were invited for a private shopping experience and a bloggers breakfast. We were greeted by Francesca and her fabulous team at Thomas Sabo with fresh pastries, fruit, sandwiches, smoothies and prosecco. The amount of effort that went into the Bloggers Breakfast alone was incredible and that was before we had our first talk of the morning.
After helping ourselves to smoothies to start the morning and flicking through their latest catalogues, Francesca lead the talks on their exquisite pieces. There are three innovative collections, Sterling which features Glam & Soul, Rebel, Karma Beads and Love Bridge, Charm Club and The Watch Collection, you could spend hours browsing over what's available. I'd never stepped foot in Thomas Sabo before as I assumed their products were expensive but there really is a price tag for everyone as prices range from £20 right up to £6,500.
Between helping ourselves to sandwiches and prosecco while falling in love with their extensive charm collection, we each pondered over the what we'd created from the Charm Club. I really loved the Black, Matte Obsidian bracelet paired with the Dumortierite December birthstone charm and as it's just under £60 for both, I may have to treat myself. There were plenty of photo ops during the event and Sotonbloggers were also featured on the Thomas Sabo Snapchat account so everyone could have a sneak peak at what we were up to.
During the event, we were each able to engrave our very own Love Coins. Thomas Sabo offers engraving with each purchase of their Love Coins which you can do in-store. It takes seconds and we were each able to choose our pendant and design before creating exactly what we wanted on the stores iPad before the engraving machine got to work. I chose the Infinity Sign and engraved A&A on the coin for obvious reasons. It's such a beautiful necklace and you can wear it on three lengths too.
I don't think I've been to an event which has been so perfectly planned and well thought out in some time. All the staff were warm and friendly, on hand to answer any questions and made sure we were suitably refreshed throughout our time there. It's always excellent customer service which sticks in my mind and Thomas Sabo completely exceeding my expectation. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and we all said on the way out how much fun the event was. I'm really looking forward to the next one and can't thank Francesca and her team enough for such a fabulous day. I can't wait to show you my Love Coins pendent in a future outfit post.
