Ilac for Back to school!!

For uniforms, Debenhams and Dunnes have everything you could need. We were impressed with the 2 pack offers in Debenhams on the skirts, trousers, polo shirts, blouses etc. Good value on coats as well. See more here!

Next up, for teens, Diesel is a brilliant shop. From sports gear to jackets to cool weekend clothes and accessories, we love this store. The staff are superb and so helpful. My daughter is 14 and she loves shopping there – as does out 16 year old! See more here!

For shoes, we headed into Korky’s. Most schools have a policy of a proper school shoe and this shop does a great range that are suitable but also, stylish enough for teens not to moan about having to wear them! (These are very similar to a pair from a well known Irish brand – which are almost twice the price)

Flying Tiger has loads of cool stuff for all ages. From cute & furry pencil cases to cool stationery and corkboards, for teens and third level. Always colourful & stylish!

For calculators, bags & brands Argos is very good. We got our daughter an Adidas schoolbag in here. See more here

Gadget Geek has cool gadgets, like speakers which are good for bringing from room to room in the house for playing music or podcasts etc.

If you have a young man for debs this year, Rocket has some great offers on suits. Suits start from oly €50! Ronan and the guys in store will look after you! Great for debs but also, for weddings and casual wear too. Lovely shirts – I always pick up a shirt for my hubby when I’m in there!

Our favourite brand of schoolbag is Totto which Bag City stocks. We bought one for our son last year and we don’t need to buy him a new bag this year, this one is still in great nick! Great value!

For coats, rainjackets and fleeces, Regatta is great and they always have great offers and sales on! We saw some great pieces on sale, such as winter coats and warm fleeces. Perfect for school runs! See more here

Unfortunately, most of us parents will have to deal with headlice at some stage so we recommend Nitty Gritty lice repellant and lice treatment solution & comb. Available at Boots, its a must have to keep nasty nits at bay! See here

Another shop that is superb for #Backtoschool is The Works. Great for stationery and art supplies and always, excellent prices!
