Laura Ashley unveils lavish tennis-inspired apparel line
Jul '12
Laura Ashley, one of Britons best-loved fashion and home furnishing retailers, has unveiled a sumptuous collection of tennis-inspired clothing ahead of this weekend’s Wimbledon tennis finals.

A team of in-house stylists have hand-picked four ‘match-winning’ items of clothing which they believe complement the All-England Club’s rich heritage and formal prestige; yet emanate a summery feel to compliment the warmer weather.

They’ve sifted through Laura Ashley’s vast collection of summer dresses, jackets, blouses and cardigans, and chosen four elegant, yet affordable, pieces of clothing ideal for a great day out at the tennis. The items below are also featured in the current Laura Ashley sale, promoted online and in-store.

Laura Ashley’s Wimbledon picks:

  • Bird Flower Print Cotton Dress- Inspired by vintage fashion, this colourful cotton dress features a stunning print sure to turn heads on Murray Mound. Comfortable fit ensured with side-zip fastening and red ribbon tie belt.
  • White Linen Pintuck Detail Shirt Dress- This summery dress certainly remains dutiful to Wimbledon’s historic all-white dress-code. However it will also show off a healthy tan to perfection.
  • Navy Cotton Knit Button Tab Cardigan- Due to the unpredictability of British weather it’s always wise to have a warm, knit cardigan close by for when the sun goes down and the chill sets in.
  • Dobby Stripe Cotton Shirt- Simply styled yet sumptuously summery. We’ve chosen this red cotton shirt to celebrate an old Wimbledon tradition: strawberries and cream.

In order to ensure delivery before the first serve is hit on Saturday, Laura Ashley is offering next day delivery on all these items. This service applies to their entire fashion range. It unfortunately excludes their bedroom furniture and made-to order sofa collections.

So whether you’re following the action atop Murray Mound, peering into Centre Court itself or just watching the matches quietly at home, be sure to get into the Wimbledon spirit this weekend; looking the part as the tennis spotlight falls on SW19.
