my John Lewis Insider News - Sepetember 2017


We've put together three fantastic competitions, giving you the chance to win a Kuoni holiday in Asia, up to four bottles of Valentino Valentina perfume, and a tableware set inspired by the V&A.


Kuoni is offering four Insider news readers the chance to win a luxurious five-night holiday for two at a stunning Shangri-La resort in Singapore, Sri Lanka, Bangkok in Thailand or Penang in Malaysia.

From the ancient green canopies of Penang to an oasis in the sleek modern cityscape of Singapore, Shangri-La Hotels are renowned for their incredible hospitality and serene atmosphere.

Each of these four destinations will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, whether you’ve stepped in from the streets of bustling Bangkok or explored the natural sanctuaries of Sri Lanka’s coastline. With lush gardens, luxurious pools and the Shangri-La’s signature CHI spas – counted among the best spas in the world – the Shangri-La hotels redefine luxury.

If it’s an earthly paradise you seek, Kuoni will help you find it. With branches in John Lewis shops across the country, Kuoni specialises in creating inspiring, unforgettable holidays that are customised for you – just one of the ways we can make life easier for you.

The prizes include accommodation for two in a double room at one of four Shangri-La hotels, plus breakfast, economy return flights and internal transfers. Valid for travel until 1 March 2018 (Sri Lanka), 14 May 2018 (Bangkok) and 30 April 2018 (Singapore and Penang). Blackout dates apply.


The Italian Haute Couture House’s original Eau de Parfum is an oriental floral concoction of fresh Calabrian Bergamot and luminous White Flowers, with tender base notes of Amber and Cedarwood. The other fragrances in the collection – Valentina Pink, Valentina Blush and Valentina Poudre – are exclusive to John Lewis and offer three floral variations.

For a light daytime scent, the Valentina Pink Eau de Parfum is the perfect choice, with fruity notes of Strawberry and Blackberry complemented by a trio of roses. The Valentina Blush perfume combines sparkling notes of Orange Blossom with warm Praline for a silky, seductive effect. And the elegantly floral Valentina Poudre is perfect for any evening occasion with its sophisticated notes of Iris and Tuberose combined with sensual Vanilla and Sandalwood.

There are three chances to win, with 80ml bottles of the four perfumes going for first prize, four 50ml bottles for second, and an 80ml bottle of Valentino Valentina Blush going for third prize.


We are giving two Insider news readers the chance to win an exquisite tableware set from the new V&A series at John Lewis. The platter, teapot, teacups and side plates are inspired by the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Toshiba Gallery of Japanese Art, making them an exotic future heirloom for your home.

The Japanese-inspired dinnerware features real gold detailing of majestic birds, butterflies and landscapes, influenced by some of the V&A’s most beautiful objects. Modern and elegant, the bone china collection will look beautiful in any home, especially if you like to entertain.

The designs are part of our V&A inspired, John Lewis designed series. The series, a collaboration between the V&A and John Lewis, features 17 stunning pieces. Read our exclusive interview with Philippa Prinsloo, design manager, to discover more of the inspirational designs.

Each winner will receive one Mizu platter, one Yuri teapot, two Tobu teacups and four Yama side plates.
