Don't buy mum chocs or flowers this year, take her out for a meal and treat her to a new jumper.  She's worth it, for all the birthday cakes, ballet classes, lifts to school, clean laundry , and bedtime stories.  Classic styles from Betty Barclay, Gerry Weber, Ribkoff, Bianca that never go out of fashion-florals, stripes, polka dots -she will love the gift.  Whether her style is classic, quirky or casual, the choice in Franchesca is without parallel.

Can't choose? A franchesca gift voucher from £10 to tuck into that box of chocs-and she will have something she will treasure throughout the year

and Easter is early this year, the last weekend in March.  Make a note in the diary to give her something special. We will be launching a competition exclusively to those who sign on to the Franchesca newsletter (N.B sign on for mum)
