Standún is a destination store in Spiddal only 15 minutes from Galway city. I’ve only recently discovered the outlet and I’m already a massive fan. The store which is 71 years old is being run by the very stylish and beautiful sisters Cliona and Lauragh, the third generation of Standún’s to run the store.
Standún really has something for all the family, the menswear section is modern and classic with heavy tweed influences particularly amongst the blazers with brands such as McGee and Stones which are very popular. The ladies section is very diverse with winterwear and very stylish party dresses. I recently attended ‘Sparkle at the g’ and fell in love with a number of pieces on the night. The homeware section is amazing, and the gifts are just the cutest, I’ll never be stuck for ideas for presents again after seeing the selection available.
The YARN event in Standún Spiddal was a tremendous success, a fantastic crowd turned up to witness a most enjoyable evening. There was a number of pop up stands from companies in the area and also a fashion show featuring Catwalk Modelling agency. I was delighted to be asked to co host with my good friend Kieran O Malley aka The Galway Player. The style was right up my street, lots of beautiful dresses that would be ideal for Christmas party season.The was plenty of great winter inspired outfits also, with scarves and jackets to suit all price ranges.
I would highly recommend a visit to Standún, it is a short but picturesque drive from Galway with amazing views along the way.
Below is my dress that I wore on the night of the YARN event shot in the stunning location of the Nox Hotel Galway.
