Reasons every Irish girl loves shopping in Penneys

Ahh Penneys – the one true love of every Irish girl.

Below are some of reasons we truly love Penneys almost as much as we love our mums:

1. You can actually afford the stuff in there.

How many hours have you wandered around its labyrinth of reasonably priced everything?

shopping

2. You can buy an entire outfit in 40 minutes

Including shoes,underwear, the exact right shade of bra and 2 to 3 pieces of jewellery and maybe even have change for a Supermacs..

3. Displaying your haul on your bed is so satisfying-

4. Fighting with other shoppers over the last S/S 2014 essential kimono even though you don’t need it, But you want it.

5. Getting lost once inside but being secretly happy to ditch your friends just so you can browse easier
