PINING for your fave shops?
Online outlet shopping has become my new obsession and I wanted to share my finds.
Many brands have secret or hidden sections on their websites, on eBay or standalone outlet shops — and some may take you by surprise.
Here are my favourites . . .
PANDORA’S BOX: If you’re a Pandora jewellery fan, you’ve probably got your eyes on more than a few charms — but if you want to buy them all the cost soon adds up.
So make sure you check out Pandora’s outlet, a little-known section of the website where you can get its popular jewellery at quite a discount. Perfect for fans of Frozen, one of the current bargains stocked is a Disney’s Olaf charm, down to £22 from £55.
Meanwhile, the Pandora Moments Snake Chain Bracelet is £110, down from £275.
SAVE: £33 on an Olaf charm
TESCO ON EBAY: Did you know that Tesco sells stuff on eBay? Shoppers can save up to 57 per cent on toys, homeware and tech by shopping from the supermarket’s ebay.co.uk outlet store, where it offers bargains on brand-new and refurbished items. For example, you can currently nab an LG Compact DVD Player for £29, usually £36 at Argos.
ROLL WITH IT: Love a Greggs sausage roll? You may find that there is a discounted outlet version of the high street bakery near you. The firm created outlet stores to give back to local communities and reduce wastage, with everything sold there still fresh. A percentage of the proceeds from outlet shops is donated to charities.
There are outlets around the country in major cities including Birmingham, Leeds and Cardiff. Use the store finder on greggs.co.uk to track down your nearest.
THIS WILL PERK YOU UP: Another eBay outlet, the Dorothy Perkins store, offers discounts on thousands of clothing items.
For example, you can currently get a pair of women’s black Kaptain riding boots for just £15.99, down from £49.99.

Deal of the day
ENJOY a home-made coffee with the new Salter Caffe Barista Pro espresso maker, now £72.99, down from £129.99 at amazon.co.uk.
CUSTARD fans should check out the new limited-edition Ambrosia chocolate orange flavour, coming to Tesco tomorrow. Pick up a tin on your weekly shop for £1.19.
PERCY Pig fans are in luck as M&S has revealed there’s a new Percy toy to collect.
The Christmas Percy has had an Easter makeover and you can pre-order him now for £15 at marksandspencer.com.
Percy could also be an investment, as the original version is on eBay for double that price.
RATHER than pay £8 for a Lime, Mandarin & Basil reed diffuser from George at Asda, just pay £3.49 for the Aldi version. I can barely smell the difference.
Giselle’s little helper

If nothing else, they’ll put a smile (that you won’t be able to see) on someone’s face.
