Back to the DIY & Gardening

With England out of the World Cup there’s no excuse not to get on with all of those DIY and Gardening jobs that you’ve been putting off. We can’t do anything to help you get over the sorry display from our boys, but we can help you get those jobs done a bit quicker and in style!

Visit our DIY and Gardening dept where you’ll find products from the ever popular Stone and Decking Cleaner to the Deluxe Garden Kneeler so that you can clean your stone work in comfort. If it’s weeds that have you pulling your hair out then why not use the Weed Wizard, the eco-friendly way to weed.

And what are you going to wear while you get your jobs done, well how about our Regatta Action trousers which are now available in black – yes that’s BLACK! We know you’ll all be really excited about this addition to the range as we were receiving orders before we had an image on the site! Well I guess it’s one of those styles that you don’t need to see to know that you are getting amazing quality at an unbelievable price.

The Autumn/Winter photoshoot is coming up and we've got some new products and some reworked old favourites to work with and 2 new models so we're looking forward to trying to make the glorious sunshine look like autumn.

Round the Island Race

Well that’s it for me this week as I’m off to the Isle of Wight for the Round the Island Race. Suitably attired with my Panama Hat, to ensure that I don’t end up the colour of a beetroot, my Activity Gilet, for my camera bits and bobs, and my Regatta Zip Off Trousers I’m raring to go!

It’s an early start, so the Zip off trousers are ideal for the journey over to the island at 4am as I am sure that there’ll be a nip in the air. Then as soon as the sun’s up I can whip the legs off and enjoy the sun on my pins. Teamed with one of our Regatta Polo shirts I’ll be looking stylish and feeling cool and calm.

Cryptic cartoons

We have a mystery cartoon artist keeping us all amused at the Jolliman office this week. We can only assume that it is a happy customer who wants to return some of the joy that we’ve given them!

In the post this week we have received 2 pictures cut from a newspaper with someone’s comic musings added. No other messages contained and no name given. We’re all on tenterhooks waiting for the next instalment and debating whether they are publishable or not!

If you are that mystery cartoonist we’d all like to thank you and say keep them coming – we always appreciate a good laugh.

Don't forget it's only 10 days until Father's Day. You could take a leaf from the mystery cartooonists book and create your own work of art for your Dad, but why not check out our Accessories dept for jazzy braces or argyll socks. I'll be plumping for the Panama Style Hat , after all an outfit just isn't complete without a Panama.

Father’s Day

Father’s Day is fast arriving, so it’s time to treat your Dad. Make it useful or stylish by shopping with Jolliman.

One of our most popular lines at this time of year is a must for any gardening, fishing or DIY enthusiast – the Activity Gilet. Not only does it have pockets to go, it’s also got loops for hanging keys or tools! Your Dad will think that you’ve blown the budget, but at only £15 you won’t feel too big a dent in your wallet.

If your Dad prefers to more sedate way of life, then how about a pair of Patio Slippers for lounging in! With outdoor soles, if he needs to step out, there’s no need to change.

If you’d rather not buy clothing then have a wander around any of our Essentials departments where you’ll find non-clothing items from the Deluxe Garden Kneeler for only £19.97 to the Shirt & Trouser Caddy for £12.

There’s something for any Dad at Jolliman.
