The Christmas lights are up, the shops are packed with sparkly dresses and the party season well and truly upon us.

And seeing as this year's festivities are already in full swing, it's high time we start stocking our kitchens with all the essential holiday treats.

With that in mind, Lidl has just announced the launch of an Organic Prosecco which is due to hit shelves just in time for New Year's Eve.

The limited edition Prosecco, made with organically grown grapes, will be available in Lidl's 154 stores nationwide for €14.99 from December 27.

Richard Bampfield, Master of Wine said of the Prosecco, "Relatively little Prosecco is made from organically grown grapes, so this is somewhat special and is a particularly expressive example. With bright aromas of pear and white peach, it is not too dry, well balanced and ideal for drinking with friends over the festive period."

So, what does organic means when it comes to wine?

Lidl helps dispel the top three most common myths.

MYTH 1: Organic is More Expensive

Organic may mean less intensive farming practices, but it does require longer periods of work and produce lower yields. However, this this not mean the price of the product has to suffer. Priced at €14.99, Lidl's limited edition Organic Prosecco shows that organic doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg.

MYTH 2: Organic Only Applies to Food

The term 'organic' isn't limited to just food. Lidl's Organic Prosecco Spumante DOC is produced using organically grown grapes, however the cellars are also cleaned purely with recycled water, and the vineyards are managed without the use of chemical fertiliser, herbicide, pesticides and insecticides.

MYTH 3: Drinking Organic Prosecco Means Compromising on Taste

Due to the less intensive farming practice, the grapes are able to fully express their flavour. Lidl's Organic Prosecco Spumante DOC, made using native Glera grapes from the Veneto region, is well balanced, not too dry with bright aromas of pear and white peach.

Lidl's Organic Prosecco Spumante DOC is available in 154 stores nationwide from December 27 while stocks last.

When you think Lidl, you most likely think groceries, nifty deals and great prices. 

However, the affordable grocery store's coveted middle aisle recently had a visit from the designing talents of supermodel Heidi Klum, and while her original collection sold out, it's time for a brand new season. 

Heidi Klum's range for Lidl is returning, but this time with a party wear twist. 

The new #LETSCELEBRATE season features a festive smattering of sequins, as well as one of the most elegant and versatile jumpsuits we have seen in quite a while. 

Also in the new line are some staple high heels to see us all the way through the party season. 

Whether glitter adorned or with a faux leather finish, we've never needed less of an excuse to justify purchasing these wardrobe staples. 

'I wanted to create a simple, elegant fashion line that will make us shine over the festive season,' Heidi said. 

Coat €26.99, Sequin blazer €24.99

This sequin blazer has got to be one of the trophy pieces from Heidi's new party collection. 

Teamed with a soft white t-shirt, jeans and heels. this blazer adds the perfect party pop to an otherwise casual NYE outfit. 

As for keeping warm on those nights out, this white faux fur collared coat will keep your outfit under wraps until you reach your party venue, as well as keeping you nice and toasty. 

Jumpsuit €12.99, Sequin dress €19.99

Along with heels and glamorous party wear, the collection also includes some sensible but stylish coats to wrap up in this winter. 

In classic winter shades like black and burgundy, these wear-with-anything coats are top of our wish lists. 

And coming in at around €26.99 each, they're a more affordable alternative to plenty of the classic styles available on the high street.

Coats €26.99 each

'I had so much fun designing the pieces in this collection,' Heidi said previously.

'I’m proud to partner with them on this fashion collaboration,' she added.

'I can't wait for you to see it. I hope you love it as much as I do.'

Heels €24.99 each

The collection launches in all 154 stores nationwide on December 4.

See you all in the middle aisle.

If like us, you're a chocolate lover who's partial to the odd tipple, then oh boy, have we got news for you.

Lidl are about to launch a brand new 'Best of Ireland' range next week, which is set to include one of the most delicious treats we've ever laid eyes on – introducing, the gin and tonic chocolate bar.

The Skelligs chocolate bar will come in three mouth-watering flavours including, Irish Honey, Irish Sea Salt and Gin and Tonic, and honestly, we can't wait to get out hands on all three.

Skelligs, the family run, Kerry-based company with some kind of sixth sense when it comes to flavour combinations, had this to say about their latest creation:

"The fresh lively flavours of this sophisticated tipple are recreated by adding crushed juniper berries and lime zest to our rich dark chocolate. Perfectly acceptable at any time of day.”

We couldn't agree more. 

The range will hit Lidl stores across the country on September 11, costing just €1.99, but be quick – these will surely fly off the shelves.

There's no doubt that Irish people are becoming more informed when it comes to the importance of healthy eating, and with that, many of us have started to explore the benefits of an alternative diet.

A woman has fallen in love in Lidl, but the man got away.

The unknown woman had been shopping in the supermarket in Deansgrange yesterday, when she noticed a man behind her in the queue.

She let the man in front of her in the line, and said that they spoke for a minute before he left the store.

And now she wants to find him.

Posted on Twitter by Rachel Kavanagh, the message was first shared in an admin group on Facebook, and Rachel thinks more people need to know about it.

The screen-shot message said: "Were you in Lidl, Deansgrange today, Tuesday 13th June at approx 2:15 (sic).

"You purchased cherry tomatoes, feta cheese and water? I'm the lady that let you ahead of me in the queue & we exchanged a few words," she wrote.

"I wish I'd had the courage to find out if you were single without coming across as completely deranged.

"If you know who this man is, please get in touch with Admin (sic)," the noted ended.

We'd love if these two Lidl shoppers found their way to each other!

Ever been creeping through Instagram and wondered where those travel bloggers get their unreal pool inflatables?

Pool floats are having a moment, with the kitsch and previously-pricey pool accessories dominating our social media feeds and now, our supermarket shelves.

Quality bargain supermarket Lidl is gearing up for summer with a set of foodie-friendly floats we'll be squeezing into our hand luggage. 

The floats are as affordable as they are Insta-friendly, and at €8.99, we may have to invest in more than one.

If you're feeling like something sweet, you can opt for the ice cream shaped float or the classic ring doughnut. 

If savoury snacks are more your scene, then this completely iconic pizza slice float is here to spice up your life.

On a health kick? Try the watermelon float for instant Instagram credentials. 

The perfect thing to pack a punch in the pool on holidays, we're extremely excited by this latest offering from Lidl.

Get booking those holidays, because the pool floats are hitting stores across the country on June 22.

We all know Lidl have been knocking it out of the park recently, but their latest announcement may actually top all their recent offerings.

According to numerous reports this morning, the German retailer will be joining forces with Heidi Klum, one of the country's best-known models.

The discount supermarket have made the decision to develop a new clothing range, and they want the supermodel-turned-television presenter at the helm.

It is understood that the clothing range, which has been developed to attract 'more affluent' shoppers, will be hitting shelves (or baskets) in both Europe and the US later this year.

Commenting on the collaboration, 44-year-old Heidi explained that she sought to create a line which is 'accessible to everyone'.

Portuguese president Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa has rushed to Tires, an area approximately 20 miles west of Lisbon, after a light aircraft crashed into a Lidl supermarket shortly after midday today.

According to emerging reports, the plane, which is believed to have been carrying four passengers including the pilot, exploded mid-air before coming down on top of a lorry which was unloading produce in the carpark of the supermarket.

It is understood that a house and a number of other vehicles caught fire in the aftermath of the aircraft's sudden descent in the area close to the wealthy coastal town of Cascais.

Reports from the scene state that the aircraft left Geneva three days ago and stopped in Marseille before ultimately making its way to Tires.

50 firefighters are currently at the scene in addition to emergency service workers.

All four people on board the plane have been killed.

With Valentine's Day just around the corner, the rush to get all the last minute bits together for the big night is on.

Luckily, you can now shop your lingerie look while your grabbing the weekly shop.

Lidl has just launched its Valentine's Day lingerie collection and, much like its bargain groceries, the underwear is amazingly affordable. 

Bras €7.99 each,  Briefs €4.99 each

The Esmara lingerie collection is monochrome, keeping the look chic.

There are also intricate Parisian-inspired details like pearl accents and lace overlays. 

Chemise top  €8.99, Briefs  €5.99

While top Irish model Nadia Forde is going to look good in absolutely anything, this chemise baby doll top is exceptionally flattering.

All of the briefs come in packs of two, so for €4.99 you're definitely getting your money's worth. 

Garters, €5.99

Lidl doesn't just have the basics covered, the discount grocery store is also carrying gorgeous garters and silky kimonos, which wouldn't look out of place backstage at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. 

The garters come in two hues, black or white, to match every other item in the Esmara collection. 

Kimono, €12.99

While supermarket lingerie might not seem special, these luxurious sateen wraps would fool even the finest of high-end lingerie connoisseurs.

And really, who's going to care that your new lacy undergarments are from a supermarket?

Bra  €7.99, Thong €4.99, Sateen Wrap €12.99

Whether you're treating yourself or gearing up to treat someone else, getting some cute underwear while doing the weekly shop is arguably much handier than trekking to the specialist shops.

Avocados? Check. Wine? Check. Unbelievable unmentionables? Check, check, check.

When you think of Lidl, the first celeb that pops in mind for a collab is NOT Paris Hilton.

The bargain supermarket chain is known for its cheap basics and knock-off wonders, so it was a bit of a surprise to learn that the reality star heiress is making a collection with the food store.

Paris announced the news on social media, posting a teaser video with the Lidl logo.

She captioned the clip: "I'm so excited to share my new collection from Lidl."

The video is literally a two-second clip of her strutting through a door, but looking at Lidl's website and the Youtube video it shared, the collection is going to be full of hair appliances.

Random? Yes, we think so.
