REISS launch new Shola dress for Autumn/Winter in red & blue

[box title="PLEASE NOTE" color="#333333"]This post is now over a year old. Reiss no longer offer this dress & the discount codes will no longer work[/box]

I have some exciting, semi-exclusive news for you!

My contact at REISS has just emailed me to explain they have re-released the SHOLA dress for the Autumn Winter season in red and blue, in a new style called the “LOLA”.

New Reiss Shola dress in red and blue

As you’ll be aware, Kate wore the now iconic Shola dress in a nude/beige colour to meet the Obamas.  It instantly sold out and has been re-released several times since, selling out instantly.

The blue version of it is available online and Reiss are launching the red version tomorrow.

UPDATED:  *DISCOUNT CODE* For twelve hours only 12p – 12a EST on Friday September 9th, save 10% on any order at! Use the code “FNO10”.

Here’s the new Lola dress next to the iconic Shola dress, for comparison:

The Lola neckline is slightly updated but the skirt features the same shape and panelling.  The red and blue colours and great for Autumn and I know loads of girls will be pleased, especially those who didn’t manage to snag a blue Shola dress in the first place, as well as those who felt the nude wouldn’t match their skin tone (me included!)
