£50 Matalan Voucher Giveaway

It's been a while since I have done a giveaway for you guys, so without further ado, here is today's giveaway. Matalan, the out of town retailer, is offering a £50 voucher to spend in their store, to one lucky reader. They have a fab Spring/Summer range about to hit the shops, so this giveaway, couldn't have been more perfectly timed. The florals that they currently have (like this playsuit here and this skirt here) and fabulous beach clothing to make you sparkle in the sand (like this kaftan here and this sarong here), make me long for a summer holiday STAT! I got a sneakery peakery at their latest look book and it's good! To see what they have coming up, check out this advert, launching tonight!

For a chance to win -
1. Make sure you follow FashionChampagne via Google Reader, on the left hand side of my blog.
2. Watch the advert.
3. Tell me in the comment section what you think of the advert.
For an extra entry tweet about the competition - @kirstyba is hosting a £50 @Matalan giveaway over on her blog -

Good Luck x

I think the advert is nice and very summery but I wasn't sure what I was supposed to be concentrating cos there's a lot going on and the constant turning made me a bit dizzy!

I liked the advert, it was a bit random though, but different! I like the song as well, and all the clothes looked lovely & summery & relaxed. Am following via G Reader & GFC. Have tweeted your link as well (@nicsnotebook) xx

You can find some really great Stuff in Matalan! But i feel very sick and dizzy now! haha I couldn't watch it to the end for that reason! Would have been great if there was not so much spinning!

Definitely a nice summery advert, Not too sure about the spinning though, it's quite hard to focus on anything and it's constantly moving.. it'd be better if it was slower or didn't spin then you'd get to see the clothing better.


Kaylie said...

Wow!!! The advert is beautiful and joyful!!!
Summer days with family and friends are the best. It just gains my desire for summer time!!! Wonderful.
However I was a bit dizzy because it's just spinning around

The advert reminds me of family summers together, and picnics with my boy. It's very busy, so it was hard to concentrate on the clothes, you would definitely need to watch it more than once to get any inspiration.

I love that advert so much, it makes me crave summery days in the country with friends and food :-) Bring on the sunshine!

I want to steal a dog to play frisbee with too....

Cherry Pullinger said...

Apart from making me feel a bit dizzy, I think the advert showcases just how far Matalan have come in the fashion stakes.

I agree with Cherry - it is a bit dizzy making! Totally makes me want to go for a summe rpicnic though. I'd wear the girl on the right's dress but trade the spike heels for a wedge. She's on the grass for goodness sake!

The Style Box said...

i love the dress that the woman on the picnic blanket was wearing but all the spinning was making me feel sick so i had to turn it off half way through!

i've tweeted too :) @thestylebox


Fashion Junkie said...

I really like the spinning on it, and the revolving scene. Think Matalan have come a long way as fashion retailers, but not sure the advert shows off the clothes to the best of their abilities. That said, adore the skirt worn by the woman on the bike, and the bike is amazing too.

Tweeted also, a fabulous and generous giveaway.

Bambi Eyez said...

ohh great giveaway! (is it for international readers too?)

The film clip reminds me of a Kylie Minogue video clip...

very cool, and well made. love it!

Sophie Isobel said...

The advert reminds me of a snow globe, going round and round.... Only a summery one!

Raffles Bizarre said...

I like the advert, so clever, but mostly because it makes me super excited for summer! I can't wait to start up some picnics and barbeques!!

Eloise said...

The advert has made me want summer to hurry up and I don't even really like the sun much!


Joey said...

1) Already following you with username everydayoutfits
2) Watched the advert
3) Love the song, love the scene, but hated the moving camera. I feel slightly dizzy now, which is a pity because that means I coudln't actually see the clothes in the advert.

Hope my honesty wouldn't ruin my chances ;)


SAUCY | f. | BABY said...

I love the fun, summery vibe of this advert. The dresses on the girls on the picnic blankets are so cute! I have to be honest though, it made me a bit dizzy. Cute clothes, nonetheless.

It's a little bit long and it make me a bit dizzy. however I really like the concept and the idea. It has a lovely summery feel and it's very nice aesthetically. I think if it was just a little shorter it wouldn't make people dizzy and it would still maintain the same concept.

I twitted the givaway!


Stephanie said...

I love the carefree vibe of the advert, and the repetition (going round and round) makes me think of an endless summer and endless fun!

thanks for the giveaway!


Anna Bananorama said...

lovely advert, it reminds me of the 70's ( not that I was around at that time) the relaxed vibe,the attitude the tea-dresses. Summer needs to hurry up :)

Binia said...

i love matalan! you've reminded me, i need to get some stuff from there.
the advert just entirely embodied summer.

Musings Of A Gem said...

I'd love to be entered into this giveaway please :)

As for the advert:

I liked the summery vibe it gave off. I like the song a lot. I actually quite like the rotation (things like that often make me feel a bit sick!). I'm not sure that it shows off any of the clothes all that well, but it sums up the vibe of the collection & would make me want to check it out further.

Btw, I'm really liking your new blog look too!

Georgia said...

I dont get this advert at all. I feel really stupid for not finding it cute :s. I thought the friends were trying have a cute picnic and that family turned up and starting building shit.

If I was there I would have been like "erm can you not see we are having a picnic in our stylish gear? I don't think its acceptable for your kids to be running around when I'm trying to get my scran on. The park looks pretty big, you could clearly go somewhere else. Also while you're listening, I don't think it's strictly legal to build shit in a public park."

Did I take it the wrong way? The clothes do look lush though so I guess thats all that matters.

This advert is soo summery! xxx
