If you haven't taken a trip to Dunnes Stores of late, then do. It is about to become to the 29+ crowd what Penneys is to the 13+ set. If boutiquey, non-trend-driven clothes with a Scandi-designer feel are your thing, Dunnes Stores should be your new favourite store.

Collating some of the best of our home-grown talent was a stroke of genius. It now has fashion labels by Carolyn Donnelly, Lennon Courtney, and Paul Costelloe, and the store feels like an amalgamation of boutiques.

Lennon Courtney gives good working-woman. Paul Costelloe Living Studio provides your classic wardrobe basics. Carolyn Donnelly -The Edit is a good take on the 1990s. The palette is mostly in those trademark Scandinavian hues - black, grey, white, some blues and forest greens and pale coral. Also well worth checking out is Considered by Helen James, for anyone whose ultimate interiors colour is Farrow & Ball's French Grey. Helen's Considered Cafe on Drury Street is a lovely spot for a coffee. And the Leigh Tucker Willow range for children is the nicest children's line on the high street.
