6.Student Best Buys
Fancy Dress Tutu Skirt – £5.00
A fancy dress wardrobe staple that can see you through just about any costume or occasion, the tutu is an easy-to-wear go-to item for parties.
Halloween? Wear with a dark top and paint bones on yourself to be a skeleton.
Christmas? Wear all one colour and a big bow – you’re a present! Easter? Bunny ears.
You can work a tutu with anything and make it look as though you’ve made lots of effort and put lots of thought into your costume… only we’ll know any different!
Maya Embroidered Bikini – £15.40
A beautifully made bikini with a naughty twist, this pretty number will see you through the summer and give you a sexy edge when relaxing around the pool.
OK, so we probably wouldn’t recommend it for doing lengths of the local pool, but it’s great for holidays!
Lined dark mesh contrasts spectacularly with bright pink florals and the caged detailing gives extra intricacy.
The neck and back fastenings are both self-tie, so you can ensure the perfect flattering fit.
Stressticles Novelty Gift – £4.00
The perfect gift for a friend who’s suffering a little with stress, this novelty stress ball really allows you to take out all of your frustrations on!
Designed to minimise pent-up stresses and look completely hilarious at the same time, you’ll have something to do with your hands during even the most anxiety-ridden of situations.
You may wish to keep them at home or in your student room rather than in your office drawer or handbag, but each to their own: use ‘em when you need ‘em!
7. More About the Store
To some extent, Ann Summers has been at the forefront of a sexual revolution on the British high street; making it acceptable to be seen to experiment and enjoy sex, and to seek advice from professionals on what were often seen as more the embarrassing elements of love and life.
The trademark pink and black paper bag can be spotted by eagle-eyed shoppers, and there’s a swift nod and a feeling of solidarity between those in-store.
You can shop at Ann Summers in one of their 150 high street shops, online at AnnSummers.com, or through a representative-held Ann Summers party.
If you’re female, you’ve no doubt been invited to one of the latter – a hen party staple since the 1980s, there are 4,000 parties held every week in the UK and these strictly women-only events happen in people’s homes, making a great excuse for some silly games, a few glasses of wine and a catch-up with mates.
The Ann Summers range isn’t perhaps as sordid as some may think. Having acquired the Knickerbox brand several years ago, the majority of their stock (and layout of their stores) is lingerie; in a variety of sizes, shapes and styles.
You’ll find everything from day-to-day bras and knickers to more risqué options and even some third-party brands and collaborations such as Lipsy.
These are joined by collections of swimwear (and yes, they’re suitable for around the pool on holiday!), loungewear and nightwear.
The more racy elements of Ann Summers’ stock are the ranges of sex toys and accessories, fancy dress costumes, novelty gifts and sex ‘essentials’, which includes such items as lubricants, condoms and massage oils.
If you’re ordering online, fear not: packaging and delivery is discreet and doesn’t feature the Ann Summers name or logo, and you can make returns through Freepost so that you don’t need to speak to anyone if things aren’t quite right. We love that they’ve made things so easy!
Where Student Discount Squirrel really ramps up the respect for Ann Summers is through their student discount. Doubling what is frequently the high street standard discount, you’ll get 20% off both in-store and online on all full-price items!
You can also sign up to the Ann Summers email newsletter for a further 15% off, and keep an eye out for seasonal sales and promotional offers to really make some serious savings.
It’s fun and it’s frugal… what fruition!
History of the Brand
Perhaps surprisingly, Ann Summers was founded by a man; Michael Caborn-Waterfield.
Struggling for a suitable name for the business, he named it after his secretary, Annice Summers, although unfortunately for her, she left the company shortly after its founding due to a professional disagreement.
The first Ann Summers shop opened in 1970 in Marble Arch, and within a year expanded to six stores across the capital, but all were pretty standard-grade ‘sex shops’.
The next year, the chain was sold to brothers David and Ralph Gold, who transformed the brand to high-street ready and focused more on lingerie to rid the chain of any perceived ‘seediness’ and move it into a new space, previously unventured on the British retail market.
10 years later, David’s daughter Jacqueline joined the board, and launched the Party Plan concept alongside installing a woman’s view into the operations. This was a popular move, and the Ann Summers brand went from strength to strength to reach over 140 shops and a large online presence.
Ann Summers remains largely un-competed on the high street as of writing, but new, less-broadly-focused businesses are popping up online. For now though, the future seems bright for Ann… and fun!
