Whether you're going in to do your weekly shop, or just fancy a trip under the Christmas lights of Dublin, then Luas is going to be your number one man this Sunday.

Yep, you can ride for free all day long, but there's one very specific rule – you have to wear a Christmas jumper.

With just about a month to go until the big day, the travel bosses are feeling festive and want to try and pull off a world record.

To have the most amount of people in one place wearing a festive sweater is no easy feat, but they did it last year, and want to make 2016 even bigger.

The record attempt will take place on O'Connell Street at 4pm on Sunday, November 27, but if you can't make that, getting to travel around the city for free is a nice bonus.


In May this year, Geordie Shore fans were devastated to learn that Charlotte Crosby had suffered an ectopic pregnancy while carrying Gary Beadle’s baby.

Having spoken candidly to Heat about her traumatic ordeal, the much loved reality star made the admirable decision to donate her interview fee to The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust and the St John and Elizabeth Hospice.

Last night, the 26-year-old television personality announced her intention to extend her support to The Ectopic Pregnancy Trust by revealing that in the run-up to Christmas she will be selling Christmas jumpers in an effort to raise funds for the charity.

According to a post on Charlotte’s Twitter account, £1 from the sale of each jumper will be donated to The EPT.

Currently, two types of jumper are available through InTheStyle.com – a ‘Santa’s My Boyfriend’ piece and a ‘Sleigh My Name’ style.  Both jumpers cost £19.99 (or €26.26) and are available in red or black.

The former Celebrity Big Brother winner has been praised online for her charitable intentions.

“Couldn’t be prouder what a wonderful inspiring woman (sic),” tweeted one fan.

“What she’s decided is amazing.  I will definitely be buying a jumper from her range knowing something is being donated to the @TheEPT,” said another.


What a bloody lovely night

The Christmas lights are up, the weather is suitably awful and we're living on a diet of hot chocolate already – it must be Christmas jumper season.

With office parties, pub crawls and cosy dinners beckoning, this year we're planning to stock up on woollies so we'll never be short of festive looks.

Our first stop? Aldi, who is stocking a massive range of jumpers this year, with all designs arriving in store on Thursday December 3.

Luckily for any festive fashionistas out there, this year's Aldi jumpers start at just €12.99 for adults, €8.99 for kids, and €6.99 if you fancy dressing up your dog/cat (yup, they have pet jumpers too).

Here's a look at our favourites…


Elf Jumper, €12.99

Penguin Jumper, €17.99

Robin Jumper, €17.99

Pale Blue Jumper, €12.99



Fireplace Jumper, €17.99

Snowman Jumper, €17.99 

Festive Jumper, €17.99



All pet jumpers €6.99



The Christmas lights are up and Tesco is rammed with selection boxes. To us, that means one thing – it's time to start shopping for a Christmas jumper.

We have the same dilemma every year… should we go all out-with a novelty jumper featuring bells and tinsel or keep it chic with an understated but stylish festive knit?

Luckily, it is possible to find a balance somewhere in the middle, especially on the high street. Here are a few Christmas looks we're coveting this season…

1. Naughty or Nice
Ever wonder what list you’ll be on? It’s not too late to change Santa’s mind…

Naughty or Nice Christmas Jumper, €18, Penneys


2. Be Bold
Our fave Home Alone quote, immortalised forever in jumper form. And a gorgeous deep green off-the shoulder jumper, at that.

3. Christmas sparkle
We love the gold embellishment on this jumper – stylish AND festive.

Just when you thought Christmas jumpers can't get any better, the good people over at Funky Christmas Jumpers pull this delightful one out of the bag. 

Rudolph has more than a red nose this festive season, as FCJ intends on breaking the Internet with this very cheeky take on Kim Kardashian's famous Paper Mag cover shot. 

The jumper features our favourite reindeer draped with jewels and boldly showing off his plump derriere. 

The jumper description reads: "Trade in your eggnog for some champagne and the perfect selfie opportunity.

"Then, post all of your selfies to the Internet for all of your friends to see that you’re the life of the party."

It's brilliant, right?! Here's a few more of our favourite festive jumpers that you can get your hands on this year:

Happy Birthday Jesus


Baby Jesus Selfie


Bling Santa



This yuletide season, two (or should that be three?) of our favourite festive stables are FINALLY joining forces: yes, step forward The Late Late Toyshow AND the Christmas jumper – as released by Penneys, no less.

Ho, ho, ho!

Toyshow jumpers: women's [left] and men's [right], both €20


After all, little could get us in the mood for seasonal festivities more than a brightly-coloured geansaí, sourced from our favourite affordable store, along with the airing of a certain live television classic.

Available in chic grey shade and classic navy shades and featuring an adorable Christmasy owl surround by snow, the €20 tops also feature The Late Late Toyshow logo.

Kids jumpers, €15


Along with a stash of fabulously comfy loungewear [priced from €14], and cute kids' items [priced from €10], the attire hits Penneys nationwide this month… all in time for the Ryan Tubridy spectacle, which this year airs on RTE on November 27.

Girls and boys PJs, €10


Better still, with €2 from every purchase going to the Temple Street Foundation, there is really no excuse (we didn't need one, mind) not to get your hands on these festive treats.

Women's lounge set, €14
Men's longe top and bottoms, €15 for the set


To celebrate the launch of the collection, home-grown boyband Hometown earlier visited the children’s hospital to spread some music and Christmas cheer.

Speaking about the collaboration, CEO of The Temple Street Foundation, Denise Fitzgerald, confirmed: “The Toyshow is a beloved national institution and many of our little patients will be watching from their hospital beds on November 27.”



Christmas jumpers are generally considered to be something of a novelty. That bright red Rudolph sweater is cute and all, but you'd get a few strange looks wearing it anywhere else than down to pub or to your office Christmas party.

But thanks to Kate Moss, Poppy Delevingne, Dree Hemingway and more, there's a whole range of festive jumpers that we'd gladly wear all year long if we got our hands on them.

Kate, Poppy, Dree, Erin O'Connor and Karen Elson all teamed up with esteemed designers like Christopher Kane and Henry Holland to create their own takes on the Christmas jumper, and the results are STUNNING.

Unfortunately each piece retails at a whopping £365 (€505), but 100% of the proceeds will go to UK charity Save The Children, making the jumpers a very worthwhile investment. 

First up is Kate's Fairytale of New York design, a sleek black long-sleeved sweater she created with Bella Freud.

We are already lusting after this stunning turquoise jumper featuring a leopard chewing on a stiletto (standard), designed by model Karen Elson and shoe goddess Charlotte Olympia.

Dree Hemingway and Henry Holland kept things traditionally festive with their red and pink Jolly jumper.

Poppy Delevingne's is among the most wearable. Designed with Christopher Kane, it features a snowy landscape of oversized white sequins that we'd wear at any time of year. 

And finally, Erin O'Connor and Giles Deacon kept things gothic with their long red and black jumper-dress – perfect for cosy Christmas nights.

The designs will be available on MatchesFashion.com from November 4.



If there was any lingering doubt (and there probably wasn't) that summer is well and truly over – today proves once and for all that winter is definitely en route.

And while darker, colder evenings are a bit of a downer, the prospect of roaring fires, Halloween delights and festive fun is admittedly rather tempting. 

Is too early to be thinking of that most essential of Yuletide wardrobe stables – the Christmas jumper?

Here at SHEmazing! we definitely don't think so… which is why we were oh-so excited to discover while wandering around Dundrum Town Centre this weekend that stock has now LANDED in Penneys.

With prices from just €12 (hurrah!) if you spot an item you really like, snap it up QUICK because they're likely to prove extremely popular.

Ivory penguin jumper, €18


Express yourelf pup sweatshirt, €13;
Blue Advent calendar jumper, €18;
Grey Rudolf jumper, €12


Elf knitted dress, €20;

PS: It's not quite a Christmas jumper but we still LOVE it…

Like the Coca Cola trucks, the Late Late Toy Show and the Cornflakes Santa ad, spotting Christmas jumpers in the shops is a sure sign that the festive season has arrived.

Far from looking like something your well-meaning Nana knit, this year's stock of jumpers are actually pretty stylish. Here are just ten of the best we've found… where you choose to wear them is up to you!

1. Grumpy Cat
Cats and Christmas… two of our favourite things.

4. Pretty print
You don't need to go too full-on with the Christmas magic – a Fair Isle print jumper makes for a subtly festive look. The cotton-alpaca blend will be super-cosy, too.
