Penneys are celebrating 50 years of affordable fashion with Irish influencer Suzanne Jackson, and we couldn't be happier about it.

The giant brand are shaking it up with the award-winning blogger and businesswoman for their A/W 2019 campaign.

Suzanne was picked for the 'Primark 50' campaign due to her established Penneys relationship over the last few years, regularly sporting the brand's fashion pieces on her Instagram.

The blogger is modelling the 1970s-style collection, which sees gorgeous prints, bold patterns and classic heritage checks showed off in the range.

Suzanne chose her look from the latest A/W19 campaign, modelling the classic tan PU leather trousers and patterned blouse paired with a camel coat on her social media.

Another of her favourite outfits was the chunky roll neck Aran knit worn under a fitted check blazer; perfect for a powerful businesswoman like herself.

Speaking about appearing in the 'Primark 50' campaign, Sue explained, “to be asked to be a part of such a huge campaign for 'Primark 50' was an absolute pinch-me moment.

"I have been a loyal Penneys customer since I was a teenager and have worked with them collaboratively on fashion as well as my own beauty products that are stocked in their beauty department," she continued.

"Primark is so relatable to everyone; there's something for everyone of all tastes, all styles and all budgets. They have been a massive supporter of mine along my journey, and I want to say, ‘Thank you Primark for always believing in me. I really look forward to our continued success together'.”

The A/W19 range features neutral shades to suit every skin tone, twinsets and tailoring in coffee-coloured tan, chocolate brown and creamy mocha colours.

15 well-known content creators were chosen to appear in the latest window, including Sophie Hannah Richardson from the UK, Adja Sitar from Slovenia and founder of SB.TV Jamal Edwards.

Who said roses can only be the theme of Valentine's Day? Primark are going above and beyond to prove that rose patterns can be worn at any time of the year, including Autum/Winter '19.

The rose print collection focuses on femininity, with soft frills, vibrant reds and bussy bow necklines. We can't think of anything better to fit into our autumn wardrobes, especially with these low prices.

First up, Primark's rose print full-length dress with a cinched waistline priced at just €25:

Primark, €25

What a look. You'll be the centre of attention in any room with a bold colour choice like this one.

Next up- Primark's floral rose print blouse in deep red for only €15;

Primark, €15

The frilled sleeves and shoulders really add to the chic vibes this blouse is giving off. The pussy bow neckline is an added feminine touch.

The next skirt has a colour change from the deep reds of the previous two items, if you want more of a springtime look;

Primark, €18

Did you really think they'd only offer you one type of rose print blouse? Hell no.

Primark's petal blouse with cream colouring really makes the red pop in this final piece. From the frills on the shoulders and sleeves to the collarbone neckline; you really can't get more glamorous.

Primark, €15

The whole collection has a maximum price of €25, so what are you waiting for? Stay rosy this autumn. The rose print range is out now in all Primark stores.

Every time Primark whip out a brand new Disney collection, we end up getting far too excited and buying the entire shop. It's just irresistable.

We constantly proclaim that the retailer has topped themselves with each new range, but the latest one has to be our favourite. 

The drop of the brand's goodies to celebrate the future release of Disney's live-action reboot of Mulan is possibly the most bangin' collection we've ever laid eyes on.

Primark's Dumbo and The Lion King collaborations had us fainting with the sheer excellence of it all, but Mulan has our hearts. 

From a giant tea mug (the only size we could ever want) cushions and bed spreads to tea pots and fluffy-as-f*ck throws, we want it all in our lives ASAP.

Primark recently dropped a Winnie the Pooh collection and Mickey the Mouse goodies to celebrate the character's 90th birthday, as well as Snow White treats.

Primark x Mulan mug: €7
Primark x Mulan single bedding: €17
Primark x Mulan cushion: €8
Primark x Mulan tea pot: €13.20 (£12)

The affordable price range for the Mulan collection won't be a surprise to any Primark fans.

The Mulan cushion comes in at just €8, their gorgeous single bedding costs €17, and the coveted mug offers the sweet deal of €7. *Wipes away tears* It's just so perfect.

Head down to your local store to nab the goodies before they're gone. Get down to business if you want to defeat the Huns, gals.

With the rise of eco-consciousness, it's no surprise that certain popular brands are catching up to the importance of sustainable materials.

Primark's homewear ranges are always ones to watch, but their latest collection featuring 100 percent sustainable cotton has us racing down to the store.

A fresh set of bedding can be the pinnacle of bedroom relaxation, and their latest range is perfect for your bed-time oasis of calm.

Primark have taken inspiration from refined Nordic interiors, creating a selection of soft Scandinavian greys and crisp white linens for the ideal minimalistic home.

The range serves as the perfect base for colour blocking with your favourite colours. The fresh, spa-worthy sustainable towels add to the theme, and are only €9 each.

Primark's reusable cup is just €6, for those of you who no longer want to waste cardboard takeaway coffee/tea cups.

The rise in popularity of Keep Cups are most likely contributing to brands like Primark focusing on reusable homewear features.

Their gorgeous striped duvet cover single set comes in at the affordable price of €11, the double is just €16 while the king is €20.

Utilising sustainable materials such as cotton rather than microplastics of synthetic materials (polyester) can do wonders for the environment. 

Supporting brands like Primark in their quest to reduce harmful materials is hugely important, and the affordability can't be denied. Why not head down and check out the latest range before it sells out?

Penneys' latest collection is literally out of this world. Seeing as it's the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's ground-breaking moon landing, why don't we commemorate the achievement through fashion?

Loungewear and camouflage print plays a major role, and the collection intends to pay homage to the amazing space agency. We're loving the impressive range, as well as the low prices.

We've all been complimented on an outfit before, and replied with a swift; "Thanks gal, it's from Penneys" to scores of disbelieving crowds.

Today, the queen of affordable fashion is celebrating 50 years of business since opening on Mary Street in Dublin in 1969. The golden jubilee of the iconic brand is gifting shoppers with a new collection.

The first store grew and gained loving fans, becoming famous with Irish and international fashion fans alike. The company now has 372 stores in 12 countries, over 75,000 employees and 15 million square feet of retail space.

The store brings 'Amazing Fashion at Amazing Prices' to the masses, and we owe it dearly for many killer outfits and Harry Potter merch.

The brand operates as Primark outside of Ireland, and has become a huge success story over the last 50 years. It plans to expand into Eastern Europe in the future, having just opened a store in Slovenia last month.

The largest store yet was opened in Birmingham this year, with five floors and 160,000 sq. feet of retail space. Primark's biggest beauty studio to date is featured, as well as a barbers and three restaurants.

With womenswear, kidswear, menswear and homeware in it's arsenal, Penneys continues to evolve it's homewear range and has achieved Leaping Bunny certification from Cruelty-Free International for all its own brand, Primark PS... products last year.

Ranges from jeans to pyjamas made using sustainably sourced cotton, grown by farmers trained through Primark’s Sustainable Cotton Programme, are now a regular store staple.

We were LOVING their eco-friendly biodegradable glitter, which launched last month just in time for festivals.

The brand are aware that there's more to be done, and wants to ensure their products are made with care and respect for the environment and workers making the clothing.

Mary Street remains a valuable landmark, with the company's international headquarters located above the shop. The HQ is named after Primark's founder and chairman, Arthur Ryan.

Expressing his pride over the 50-year milestone, Primark CEO, Paul Marchant said: 

“The doors to the very first Penneys opened on Mary Street 50 years ago today, and I am so proud of everything we have achieved together in that time – starting from humble beginnings with just one store to now serving over one million customers a day."

The Lion King collection, released today, has already sent fans into a frenzy. Prices start from just €3.50, so you can imagine the rush to buy the entire range.

The amazing line include a white jumper with all your favourite characters from the hit movie, denim shorts, trainers and a yellow bag. Penneys have even created a beauty aspect to the line.

A three pack of lipsticks, a €6 highlighter palette and a mini eye shadow palette are all part and parcel of the range, and we've reached peak excitement.

Penneys bedding from €17

There's even a gorgeous duvet set that is sure to be snapped up quick. We have our eyes on a terracotta hoodie with a mini Simba's face on it for €14…

The shop dropped a 'Feeling Proud' collection to mark pride weekend in support of LGBTQ rights a few weeks ago too, not to mention a Toy Story 4 range.

We're been treated well by the budget fashion house, that's for sure.

Paul Merchant also made sure to give his thanks to Penneys' exceptionally loyal customers;

"I would like to thank our customers for their loyalty over the past five decades. We look forward to providing them with an exceptional shopping experience into the future."

The visionary company is celebrating in style in its Mary Street store, encouraging customers to drop by today to join in the fun and fashion from 12pm onwards with a live DJ, giveaways and treat stations throughout the day. 

May as well pop in, you may just get a well-deserved gift out of it. Not to mention it's time to scout out that incredible Lion King collection before it sells out…

Popping into Penneys is never a singular activity – you attempt to venture into it's hallowed halls for just one thing you need, be it bobby pins, tights or makeup rounds, but end up leaving laden down with their signature brown paper bags.

There is always a fabulous coat that catches the eye, or a cheap as chips piece of jewellery that elevates all of our outfits. 

One thing we also end up stocking up on in Penneys is socks – and with April Fools Day upon us, Penneys decided to treat us to a little sock-related prank. 

Posting to the Primark Instagram, the bargain brand uploaded a sun rise snap of a Primark branded vending machine perched by a wall in Temple Bar. You can spot the corner of The Temple Bar pub in the background as an early morning riser strolls by on his way to work just out of frame.

Clicking through the carousel of images, the blue machines can be spotted by European landmarks like Big Ben in London and Paris' Eiffel Tower. There are also shots of the machines sitting on sunny Italian streets and surveying the New York skyline – all under the very relatable hashtag #IOnlyCameInForSocks. 

'Have you spotted something bold and blue in your capital city yet?' reads the caption. 

'We can officially reveal our latest innovation; the Primark sock vending machine, providing you with the essentials when you need them most'

The machines are stuffed chock-a-block with rolls of handy socks (no fluffy ones, sadly) and honestly, we had a thrill of excitement after laying eyes on the machines. 

While we would honestly LOVE if 'Primark essentials' vending machines existed (how handy if you laddered your tights on a night out or needed an emergency pot of eyelash glue) this is simple a well-photoshopped prank. 

Clearly, it's a great idea though, as many in the comments section lamented the fact that it's a prank. 

'That would have been actually awesome as I mostly come in for the socks,' commented one. 

'I would love this machine,' said another.

However some fans thought it might just be true: 'Are these anywhere in Glasgow?' wrote another. 

Imagine if Penneys made these vending machines in time for festival season?

We would have the stuffed with cans of dry shampoo, socks of all assortments and power banks for our dying devices – and maybe a spare top or two.

Anyone want to start a petition for Penneys to make these a real thing?

From gel nails to shellac to permanent polish – getting your nails done is a total treat. 

However, some weeks we simply don't have time to hit the nail salon – and frankly, it's not always the most affordable way to get our beauty buzz.

 Luckily, our ride or die nail polish brand Essence has released….wait for it… not 10, not 20, but 50 shades for Spring/Summer 2019. 

The shades cover a huge range of nail trends that we're about to dive into, which have been spotted on the runways of major fashion houses. 

However, our favourite part of the new line, besides the diverse shade range, has got to be the price – each bottle of polish comes in at just €1.95. Bargain alert!

Bubblegum pink and white manicures were spotted at Jeremy Scott – hailing the return of two toned nails.

Whether you get artistic by splitting each nail in two using a nail sticker, or simply painting every second nail a different shade, two tone is having a moment. 

Try to keep the colour scheme complimentary, such as two pastel shades, or go slightly more editorial with greys, black and white. 

 

Colour popping nails look gorgeous against a summer tan, and perfectly compliment our new season wardrobe of light denim, white t-shirts and nude animal prints. 

Essence shades Legally Pink and  Mrs Brightside (which we are particularly fond of) are the ideal summer holiday sorbet shades – refreshing, bright and shiny. 

Draw more attention to your gorgeous, individual mani by adding a serving of gold jewellery in the form of rings and bracelets. 

The dark metallic nail trend look may seem like more of a winter vibe, but a dark nail contrasted with a summer outfit can look incredibly edgy.

City of Stars nail polish is the go to product, as navy blue was seen at Emporio Armani’s show, looking regal and elegant. 

Essence gel nail polishes are renowned for rarely needing more than a single coat, so a five minute manicure is guaranteed. What shade is taking your fancy?

We could not be any happier about this news.

The collab debuted with five ranges – Sleep Spa, Pore Balance, Maximum Moisture, Plump & Glow and Pollution Solution – each featuring mix and match products for a completely customisable skincare regime.

Pollution Solution City Mask

The Creative and Beauty Director says, ''Everyday I have the privilege of speaking to my readers via my social media platforms and the question I’m asked most is – what’s the best high street skincare brand?''

She continued, ''I struggled to recommend one brand that offered a total skincare solution. Together with Primark, we took a blank sheet of paper and started from scratch, working to develop 20 products that offer my readers and the Primark customer great skincare at great value.”
