Now we have found some womens Hope jackets down the back of that pesky howies sofa!

To clear the last few, we’ve decided to do a bit of a special offer.
£99 down from £190. We reckon that’s a pretty good deal for you girls out there.

They would make a lovely present for someone as well.

The Hope jacket is a timeless looking sporty bomber style jacket. Made in the UK from wool tweed from the Isle of Mull, which has been woven especially for howies. The main colour of the tweed is the natural grey of the sheep's wool and the light and dark blue colours of the check have been created by dyeing the wool with woad. Two hand pockets. Fixed hood with wooden toggle button fastener. Internal bound seams. Lined sleeve. Ribbed cuff.

Best be quick though, we only have 6 women's size 12, 8 women's size 14 and 3 women's size 16.

Even if these sizes do say sold out on the site please do try calling as there may be one left in the box.

You can call us on 01239 614 122 to grab one, or order online here.

(Psst - if you order by 12 noon tomorrow, you can get an extra 20% off with our speedboat offer.)

Magic in the sky

Last week I went on holiday to a place I had wanted to go since I was about 15 and my hubby (Steve) since he was 8 years old.

We just hadn't gotten round to it or something, anyway I sold my crappy car for peanuts and saved away knowing it was Steve's birthday coming up, it was all a suprise and I was so excited.

We went to Iceland, I wanted to see the landscape, the extremes, the people, taste the food and to see the Northern lights.

We went out on Wednesday night to see the lights and stood in darkness under mostly cloud which is not good for seeing them.

It had snowed that day, we managed to find a small spot of starry sky but nothing appeared.

We were not deterred,  Thursday night we went out again (Steves's Birthday), pure clear sky and we had a good feeling we would see them.

The clothing I was wearing was great for the first two hours then it got to midnight and it was freezing and all we had seen was a smear across the sky.

Then on a slow exposure (7 minutes on the camera) a green smear appeared which we could not even see.

We couldn't beleive our eyes, then a further 2 more 7 minute exposures of similar effects we could actually see them emerging.

It was subtle and slow at first then gradually got brighter and brighter and spread across the pitch black starry sky, like paint on a wet paper.

It was fantastic, what a birthday present, I love nature it's weird, unpredictable and so powerful.

We are now planning a summer trip camping and kayaking.

Here is a link to my Steve's photos

It's that time of year again, when the more organised of us are preparing for Christmas.

If you are one of those people, we're happy to say that we can help.

This year's delivery of Christmas cards from Surfers Against Sewage has arrived and they are available online now.

The SAS Christmas card is an important fundraiser and is a great way to convey the campaign message to friends and family. On the back of each card there's a little information about marine pollution and how to support SAS by becoming a member

Big thanks to Kate Sutton for her designs www.katesutton.co.uk

The cards come in a pack of 8, featuring 4 beautiful designs and they are printed on 100% recycled card.

To avoid any last minute trips down to Clinton's, get your order in before they're all gone - we don't have many.

Click here to see the cards.

Just found this, pretty clever -

Anthony Burrill & Purple Monkey Design in New Orleans went and scooped up a bunch of the oil BP spilt into the Gulf of Mexico and used it to print these posters... find out more here

Bristol Cycle Summit Talk

  • Posted by howies
  • 19 October 2010

This Thursday the guys and girls from the 'Cycle Summit' team will be coming into the Bristol shop to tell us about their recent trip to the Alps.

The team of nine amateur adventurers and four support members set of from the north of France on a 600-mile cycle to Chamonix. There they spent seven days in the Alps challenging themselves to their limits against the altitude, summiting some of Western Europe's highest peaks...all to raise money for charity.

So, come and join us for a cuppa or a beer from 7pm-9pm. You can pick up a free ticket from the shop, or reserve one by giving us a call on 0117 929 8928 or e-mailing us at bristolshop@howies.co.uk...but be quick, numbers are limited and we haven't got many tickets to give away!

See you on Thursday!

I was out of the office yesterday, doing a little accessories photoshoot with Lydia and Rich.

So, a couple of weeks ago we had the Spring/Summer'11 shoot in the chilly pouring rain, and yesterday i was trying to shoot big lovely chunky knits  in the warm & sunny cloudless blue sky - it just doesn't make sense sometimes!

Oh, on a similar 'wintery' note...if anyone has any remedies i can use to get rid of this horrible sniffly cold i have then please let me know!
