    Had a lovely girlie day today with my wonderful maids - and found our bridesmaid dresses. Perfect colour, perfect style!

    The dress - Coast Melba dress in colour Thyme

    Matching bag:

    HOWEVER, there were none in a size 14 so we're one short!! The dress is by Coast, but it is a design called Melba, which has been designed for the *Debenhams* Coast outlets only. AND it's last season so they are getting no new ones in.

    I've completely failed to find it on t'internet.

    The BM's have been tasked with phoning/visiting the other Debenhams in our region to track one down in a size 14, but if you lovely ladies happen to be going into a Debenhams and see this dress in a size 14 I would be sooooooooo grateful if you could a) get them to put it aside immediately! and b ) contact me on this thread asap so I can work out a way of getting said dress from wherever it is!! Money is no object! (ish!!)

    Hope am not being too cheeky! :)

    Oh, and one last thing, and I hope you're all very proud of this, this is what we had for lunch!!!!

    Hi,

    Will your nearest store not phone for you? I know they do this in other shops. Otherwise maybe you could phone around and see if you can get it? may save you driving around every store ha ha

    I am up in yorkshire but will have a look for you. Keeping fingers crossed. Let us know how you get on.

    Oh anther idea if you get stuck, could you get a size 16 and have it adjusted/ taken in?

    Ill keep an eye out for you, there's a couple of massive debanhams stores near me (manchester and the trafford centre). My badminton mixed partner (not a strange metaphor!) Works at the stockport one, ill text him.

    You should definitely try phoning them for you. If you asked at customer services or something, they should tell you which branches have it. :)

    Ah brill thanks guys.

    The woman in the shop was very good, she rang about 5 branches in the N. West but only got through to 2. The problem was it was about 5:15pm so some were probably closing, and with it being a concession the phones can potentially just ring out if no-one stood there! She's given MOH all the numbers of our nearby stores so gonna keep trying.

    MrsB I would love it if you could ask in Stockport, we didn't get that stores number and it's only an hours drive from Liverpool so it would be IDEAL if they had it there! Thanks x

    LOVE the lunch! Chocolate in one hand, caramel in the other - sounds like an ideal balanced diet to me!! :D

    Hope you manage to find the dress :)

    The number for the Leeds store is 0113 218 6300 - its number busy at the moment but I will keep trying and see if I can reserve it for you under the name MrsMay - If I can ever get through to them!
