Regular followers of The Daydreamer will know that I am a huge fan of designer outlet shopping emporium, Bicester Village. Possibly the most luxurious way to do discount shopping, Bicester Village is a gorgeous outdoor village dedicated to providing high fashion at affordable prices for stylish customers.
To celebrate it’s 15th anniversary, Bicester Village has launched a website featuring an online exhibition of timeless pieces, curated by the legendary Colin McDowell. Not only is McDowell incredibly passionate and knowledgeable (understatement!) about fashion, he is a kind and charming man. (He once telephoned me personally at home to give me advice on my writing career).
The Bicester Village 15 Years of Style website also has an online charity auction in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. Here you can bid on designer goodies from luxury labels such as Mulberry, Yves Saint Laurent and, this week in particular, Marni. Not only will you add classic, stylish pieces to your wardrobe when supporting Timeless, you are doing so for a great cause.
Guilt free shopping? Count me in.

Is is so exciting, Bicester Village is 15 years old, and the other 8 Chic Outlet Shopping Villages in Europe are catching up fast. It has been an honour to have Mr McDowell help us celebrate
The Chic Buzz, I agree. You are doing a great job with all of the villages and your blog is a wonderful place of info and inspiration.
I can remember when I was about 16 reading Glamour magazine and they did a promotion on Bicester Village (must have been about two years after opening) and I vowed to myself I would go. Whaddya know, I fall in love with a man whose parents live 5 miles away! Must have been fate. 🙂
