Michelle Heaton launches the Aegon Classic Ladies Day

Yesterday I braved the snow and ice for a very special launch event that was taking place in Birmingham. In the glamorous confines of the In House Bar in Birmingham’s House of Fraser, the Aegon Classic Ladies Day was officially launched with Bucks Fizz, canapes and a very glamorous ambassador.

The very beautiful Michelle Heaton from Liberty X was unveiled as the official face of this years ladies day, and a more wonderful and apt person could not have been chosen. Michelle recently faced a very difficult health decision after she found she had an 80% chance of developing breast cancer due to the mutated BRCA2 gene. Michelle had a double mastectomy in November, and has since done much to raise awareness of breast cancer, breast surgery and reconstruction. With Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer the official charity of the Aegon Classic Ladies Day this year, Michelle offered a poignant reminder that breast cancer continues to  need further research and awareness.

Michelle looked amazing, having been styled in a wonderful Mary Portas dress from House of Fraser. Slim, tanned and toned, she looked the picture of health and spoke warmly of her excitement about the Aegon Classic Ladies Day event, and how this was going to be a real girls day out, talking of how she was going to bring her mother and friends on the day. She was then happy to mingle and chat with the guests, happily posing for photographs and discussing the terrible weather!

The Ladies’ Day at the Aegon Classic is taking place on Thursday 13 June at the Edgbaston Priory Club. For more information on tickets, please visit www.aegonclassic.co.uk/tickets or call 0844 209 7359.

Treat yourself – Up to 40% off Mary Portas at House of Fraser.

If, like me, you were intrigued by the Mary, Queen of Frocks programme, were dying to try the new range, but found it just a little on the pricey side, then all your Christmas’s may be coming at once. House of Fraser currently have discounts of up to 40% on selected lines, and this includes many of the lustworthy dresses

I have been browsing the collection for my top three pieces and did find it difficult to narrow my shopping list down. Mary often uses the sort of slinky jersey that I just love, and has lots of dresses with…wait for it…long sleeves. She also utilises a range of lengths to suit every height, and is not afraid of colour. In effect, this is the thinking women’s wardrobe.

So…almost needing a drumroll…these are the pieces that are worth your investment.
