The highly anticipated FIFA World Cup has kicked-off, which will dictate many football fans’ diaries all around the world for the next four weeks. And if football isn’t your favourite game, Wimbledon is set to make its return in July. So, in preparation for the big events, the Clarks Village team have announced their line-ups for the best buys, sporting accessories and advice for the upcoming sporting seasons.
Look match fit on the pitch
Wear your colours with pride and be the “12th man” with your country’s official kit. From football shirts, balls, shin pads, socks or boots, head to Sports Direct for everything you’ll need. You can even shop by your favourite player – whether it’s Messi, Pogba or Ronaldo – and choose from their personal shirts or boots.
More of a tennis fan? Whether you want to look the part, are training for a match, or heading to Wimbledon to see your favourite names play this summer, make sure you take a trip to Clarks Village to get match ready.
If you’re training for a tournament, track down your new outfit, shorts, tees, skirts and trainers from ASICS. Producing top quality branded shoes and clothing is something that the brand has been doing for over 50 years. In addition to their extensive range of performance apparel, equipment and accessories, ASICS also supplies a collection of kids’ trainers and a number of outdoors, field, racquet and court offerings. The highly-trained team of professionals in-store have exceptional knowledge about the best products for you.
Find your way to Skechers as well to see the latest selection of lifestyle and performance footwear for men, women and children. See the latest innovative Skechers GOrun and Skechers GOwalk styles in-store and let the team help you find your perfect fit.
For those who enjoy watching sports, just as much as those participating, Clarks Village is home to a fantastic range of fashionable and designer brands, helping you look perfectly on trend this summer.
Drop into Hobbs or Coast for the season’s favourite dresses and co-ords. Traditionally, think White for Wimbledon. However, if you prefer something a little more vibrant – and it is summer, so why not – then add pops of colour through your outfit. A light scarf, some bold earrings or a necklace, your handbag, or even painted nails can transform your look in an instant. Accessories are a great way to introduce colour and you can find a treasure trove of beautiful options at Clarks Village. From Ernest Jones and French Connection, through to Coast and Chappelle Jewellery, there’s options for all styles and prices.
For men, a nice light shirt is always the answer. This season, Crew Clothing, Jack Wills and Original Penguin have the perfect answer for Wimbledon. On sale in your choice of colour, cuts and shape, you can don the buttoned up or down look, or accessorise with a tie and pocket handkerchief, depending on your preference.
Short-sleeve or long-sleeve? Take your pick across our many stores, but maybe check the weather forecast first.
Paired with some tasteful chinos or tailored trousers, and you are centre court ready. Depending on your style (and the heat), head to Suit Direct for tailored trousers in all colourways and fits. The brand stocks your favourite designer brands, as well as some purse-friendly options. However, if chinos are more your style, be sure to visit GAP, Crew Clothing or Ben Sherman for some of our best buys.
Our advice is to always take a jacket or cable knit jumper, just in case the weather turns traditionally British. Our favourites in French Connection or Crew Clothing – but the choice of more than 30 stores is yours!
You can dine at one of the many restaurants in the Village including, Frankie & Benny's, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Prezzo and Pizza Express, mid-shopping. We’re also home to your favourite coffee shops and eateries, perfectly placed around the outlet, including Costa, Pret and Caffè Nero. And there’s always some game-stopping offers in-store.
This year, we’re celebrating 25 years since we opened our doors, so there will be even more special offers in-store from our brands. As the UK’s first ever outlet shopping centre, Clarks Village has over 90 high street and designer brands, offering discounts of up to 60% off the RRP.
