Five pairs of jeans, 19 pairs of shoes, 18 t-shirt tops and four handbags are bought every minute on eBay.co.uk. Now the UK’s number one shopping site* is launching the eBay Fashion Outlet, a new destination for discount fashion online.
The eBay Fashion Outlet – www.ebay.co.uk/outlet brings savvy shoppers amazing discounts on new items, direct from some of the UK’s favourite high street names and brands, including Office, Superdry, House of Fraser, Kookai, La Redoute, Schuh and Ted Baker.
17 million shoppers flock to eBay.co.uk every month to bag a bargain, and although eBay is best known for auctions, currently, over half the items for sale on the site globally are new and available to buy instantly.
The Fashion Outlet adds a new dimension to shopping on eBay.co.uk, enabling clothes shoppers to buy direct from the best brands and shops, with new retailers arriving in the Outlet over the coming weeks.
To mark the opening of the Fashion Outlet, eBay has worked with top stylist Zoe Lem and its Outlet partners to highlight a selection of essential women’s wardrobe items, from classic jeans, to structured blazers and little black dresses – all available from great brands, in a range of sizes, at up to 70% discount in the eBay Fashion Outlet.
“Outlet shoppers aren’t slaves to fashion – we’re confident, smart and define our own style,” said Zoe. “The eBay Fashion Outlet brings high street brands together in one place, with big discounts. For savvy shoppers, it’s all about looking good, whether you’re out on the town or on the school run, without breaking the bank.”
eBay has also revamped its entire Fashion category – www.ebay.co.uk/fashion - including a new “More Like This” picture search that analyses the millions of pictures of items for sale to find matches based on colour, style and fit.
To celebrate the opening of the Fashion Outlet, eBay is launching a nationwide advertising campaign and a blog dedicated to savvy shopping at life4less.ebay.co.uk.
