Celebrating 25 Years With Clark’s Village




Clark’s Village Outlet in Street, Somerset is celebrating its 25th year this year & to celebrate, I was given the opportunity to take on the £25.00 bargain hunt shopping challenge. 

This is honestly one of my favourite ever places to shop & is just under 35 minutes away from where I live, so we do visit here quite a lot. With up to 60% RRP at more than 90 high street & designer brand shops- what’s not to love?! 

I’ve always thought myself to be quite a savvy shopper, I love to forage out the bargains- with 5 of us to clothe, I obviously like to save the pennies where I can! 

I was super excited to see what I could buy for £25.00, so like any good bargain hunter, I spent a little bit of time looking over my store guide picking out the shops where I knew I should be able to find some serious discounts & made sure I visited those first. 




Clark’s Village has a large car park, with plenty of parking available. Parking is pay & display, so remember your change if you are planning a visit & is just £3.00 for 5 hours, so it’s super affordable! 

Straight on arrival MR.B wanted to have a look around Superdry where he managed to pick up a winter coat (Yes, we are well aware we are in summer, but MR.B likes to be efficient- haha!)£125.00 reduced to £75.00, saving £50- bargain!

I then wanted to have a look around Marks & Spencer’s where I found some gorgeous sleepwear pieces & the skirt of DREAMS! It was £28.00 reduced to £12.00 & it was honestly so beautiful, but they didn’t have any left in my size! Gutted didn’t even cut it!

We went into GAP where I managed to spend a small fortune kitting the children out with some summer pieces. I found the cutest pair of dungerees for Gracie-Mae & they were only £9.00!! 

At this point I still hadn’t made a start on my £25.00 bargain hunt, I’d given myself a little theme to follow, I choose nautical, so was on the lookout for anything blue, white, red, striped etc... I will admit this was quite hard but I was absolutely adamant to stick to the theme i had set myself.

So I popped into Next & as it was like fate, a group of blue & white striped skirts were hanging on the front shop rail- £28.00 down to £13.00, that beauty went straight into my basket!



Whilst picking the children up a few more pieces (I absolutely adore the children’s section in Next!) I came across the Instagram famous beach hat £7.00 down from £20.00, £7.00!! So I just had to pick it up & it went with my nautical theme perfectly!




We then took a break from shopping as Isaac was getting a tad hangrey, a hungry & grumpy toddler is definitely not a good mix!!

There are plenty of restaurants on site, like PrezzoPizza Express & Frankie & Benny’s plus more, so you are definitely spoilt for choice! After a bit of lunch & refuelling, we headed to Clark’s Village’s very own park- King Arthur’s Forest Play Park.

We hoped Isaac would run off some steam & tire himself out enough to drift off in his pram for the remainder of our shopping trip. (This did not happen- ha!)




We’ve now been fed, watered & had a play so it was time to crack on & spend the last bit of my voucher, so I headed to The Beauty Outlet & picked up a red nail varnish for £2.00 & a red lip balm from The Body Shop for £3.00. 




Before we headed home we just had to stop at The Cadbury Store to pick up a few bags of Misshapes! You can’t finish a Clark’s Village trip without coming here!! 




MR.B & I were super chuffed with our bargain finds & had a brilliant day too! If you’re not too far from Street we’d definitely recommend a visit to Clarks Village – just make sure you have a fair bit of money to take with you as there are so many great shops! 

Have you visited Clarks Village before? What bargains did you pick up? Let me know in the comments.
