Black Friday!

Is it really that time of year again? With a definite nip in the air this past few days (not to mention the storms) its really starting to feel like Winter. I know its a cliche, but I can't help thinking that this year has just flown by!We have had such a busy year between various events, the Fleadh and our birthday, it's all just happened so quickly.

Getting back to the present (geddit?!), though, at the practice, we are starting to gear up for the festive season. The decorations will soon be up and we have big plans for our annual Christmas window display this year, too!

We have been thinking alot about the usual Christmas sales and offers that start to get talked about this time of year and we have been thinking 'Why not do something a little different this year?' The usual January Sale idea has become a little tired for us so we have come up with a few little treat events instead, that pack a whole lot more punch!

Borrowing the tradition from our Stateside friends, our first event is a one day only Black Friday offer....Black Friday is 27th of November, which is TOMORROW peeps!
We will be taking a whopping 25% off all frames, including sunglasses and sports frames all day. 
You really don't want to miss out on this special offer! 

Just to give you an idea of the savings....a little temptation factor perhaps :)
1. Save €67.50 on this glam Maui Jim 'Nalani', see more Maui Jim
2. Bag this uber stylish De Stijl 'Bram' frame with a saving of €65, see more De Stijl
3. Feel patriotic and save €60 on this gorgeous Etnia frame 'Galway', see more Etnia Barcelona

5. Save €55 on this Bolle 'Bolt' frame-great for cycling, comes with a modulator lens. See more Bolle.

Glasses make the perfect gift option, especially sunglasses and specialty frames like the Bolle sports glasses and Maui Jim's 'Waterman' frame.
Remember, if you are buying an optical frame as a gift, we will be happy to glaze the frame later, if you don't want to sneak around too much!

Hope to see you guys tomorrow!

Introducting Etnia Barcelona - Vintage Collection

We are so excited to announce Rachel Murray Eyecare is an exclusive stockist of our newest brand. One of our favorite brands, Etnia Barcelona - in celebration of their 15th birthday - have recently launched a new diffusion line - the Vintage Collection - and it couldn't be better!

They have used actual vintage acetates from the 70's and combined them with their own colours to create an original, but vintage inspired, look. 

Each model is named for a different historic neighborhood, in major world cities such as Shoreditch, Mission District and Fitzroy.

There are eight optical frame and six sunglasses styles to choose from, and two of the optical styles have two colours of custom clip on sunglasses with mirrored lenses which ups the cool factor 100%. It's such a practical addition but it actually makes the frame even more attractive. I love how it looks with the metal and plastic and as always their choice of colours defines them. (see pic below)

The collection comprises of all acetate styles, including the sunglasses and the vintage influence is evident. Keyhole bridges and funky prints on the tips, beautiful tortoise shell patterns and clear acetate frames are just some of the choices available. Not to mention the clip ons.....we are obsessed with the clip ons!

A couple of the sunglasses models have photochromatic lenses, yet another cool little extra. They are already dark - with graduated lenses - and they will get even darker in bright sunlight, making them the PERFECT winter sunglasses........who wouldn't like to get a pair of these in their stocking this Christmas?!

This is a unisex brand so there is something in it for everyone.Will you be a Williamsburg or a Montauk?A Fitroy or a Kreuzberg?Let us know what you think!
