Merry Christmas from Jolliman

While driving to work early on Friday morning I was amazed to see the number of snowmen that had appeared over night. It brought a smile to my face and a lovely warm Christmas feeling to my cockles whilst trying to keep the car from colliding with parked cars, pedestrians and buildings that seemed to be generating a magnetic attraction.

We have luckily not had as much snow as some areas of the UK and there is a debate about whether this is good or bad. Those of us who are still children at heart think that this is very bad as we have not been able to have any decent snowball fights, whereas the more sensible folk are grateful that we have not been cut off as some people in other areas of the UK have.

This will be my last blog until the New Year as our offices are closing from Christmas Eve until 4th January. I know that the gang in the warehouse will be very pleased to escape the arctic conditions that they are currently working in, thanks to all this pre-Christmas snow.

Feel free to keep placing orders during our Christmas break, if you've been given the gift of cash, maybe treat yourself to a pair of gloves or scarf or even one of the weather-proof items from the Regatta ranges for men or women so that you can keep braving the elements while remaining cosy, warm and dry.

Those of you that have been to our website will know that we will not be increasing our prices to cover the VAT increase from 1st January 2010.

It's our way of wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from everyone here at Jolliman.

Don't Panic!

No need to worry if you still have some last minute shopping that you need to do. Take advantage of our 48 Hour delivery service and if you place your orders by midday on 18th December you should still have plenty of time to wrap them up and put them under the tree!

With the Met office threatening snow before the end of the week, it's the ideal time to order yourself something from our ranges of Regatta mens and ladieswear. The Regatta Mens Waterproof 3 in 1 Jacket or the Regatta Ladies Breathable 3 in 1 Jacket will keep you warm and dry, but if you get too hot during those snowball fights you can remove the inner and still keep dry. Both are available in 4 colours, so you are bound to find one that's right for you.

The other item that I truly believe you can't afford to be without this year is our Lenny Trapper Hat. Well we all now that up to 55% of our body heat can be lost through the head, so let's keep it covered! Designed for the cold with waxed poly/cotton and faux fur and ear flaps that fold down to keep ears snug and warm and slide clip fasten when not required. All of that and only £11 or 2 for £10 each, so why not treat yourself to 1 in navy and 1 in khaki?
