River Island is yet another British clothing chain with a location on Grafton Street. The store carries a range of trendy but reasonably-priced clothing, aimed at the young shopper. Children are also catered for. River Island is a bit more casual than some of the trendier stores, but this is probably no bad thing. Always worth a look.
Brown Thomas is the finest and most exclusive lifestyle store in the city. It is renowned for it's selection of designer clothes and shoes, including creations by Dries Van Noten, Salvatore Ferragamo, Givenchy and Calvin Klein among others. The store also stocks a fine bunch of handbags, hats, lingerie, belts and other fashion accessories that make a perfect style statement. Menswear, suits, cosmetics, kitchenware, electrical items and gifts are all in abundance here. In between shopping, if you feel like catching your breath, there are a number of pleasant cafes on site to serve you delicacies.
Monsoon's clothes are colourful and flowing for the most part, aimed at the slightly more mature end of the young market.Their range features lots of dresses and skirts, often with a floral pattern or a velvet theme. Some of the excellent clothes for young girls as well as a variety of handbags, jewellery and hair clips are also in stock. For those with an individualistic streak, Monsoon might supply something that little bit different.
Debenham's stock is almost as chic as that of Brown Thomas, but, perhaps due to its location in the working class environs of Henry and Mary Street, the shop is not nearly as intimidating. The clientele are mostly young working women, so as you'd expect, they have an especially good selection of women's suits and posh cosmetics.
For all things tweedy, Kevin & Howlin is the place to go. The store specialises in hand woven tweeds for men, including jackets, suits and hats. They also sell tweed fabric if you are thinking of making your own. This is quality clothing and should attract those seeking the classic look. Helpful in store advisers are on hand to help you choose the most suitable outfit.
Ever-growing in size, Blanchardstown is probably the most regularly frequented Dublin area shopping mall. A cinema and a Leisureplex games arcade will keep the young ones entertained, while chain stores Dunnes and Debenhams anchor the whole center, providing household and family necessities. There are a few restaurants and all the shops you might expect to see at a mall, including Boots, Eason, H&M and more. There are also two or three adjoining complexes that house a PC World and many other shops.
