So here goes a 4 step plan to a fab day shopping in Paris:

1. Breakfast at Maison Ladurée,

16 rue Royale by Madelaine.

The original Ladurée tea room that opened in 1862 still has alot of it’s original charm – take a seat upstairs for that extra special feeling of stepping back in time. Buy a box of macaroons for a real Parisian souvenir to take home or simply eat later as a midnight snack 😉

2.  Colette

213 rue Saint-Honoré

From Ladurée take the no. 14 metro to Pyramides then walk to rue Saint Honoré, turn left and you’ll find yourself at Colette – Paris’s first ever concept store.

This is the one place you are seriously bound to find a celebrity. Three floors of heaven.

Ground floor (always crowded) has plenty of super cute exclusive nick knacks at all budgets so get your souvenir here.

First floor exclusive designer wear and jewellery galore – not cheap but amazing.

Sous Sol you’ll find the cafe – it’s OK but personally I would save your appetite for the next stop.

3. Merci,

111 boulevard Beaumarchais

From Colette make your way to metro stop Tuileries, take the no. 1 line to Bastille then the no. 8 line to St Sebastien Froissart

Merci is hidden in a courtyard so keep your eyes open for the little fiat marking the entrance.

Version 2

Opened in March 2009, the founders, Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, realised that Paris lacked a place which brought together the best in fashion, design, household goods, and friendly eating options.

The focus is on emerging markets with a huge African influence as well as young up coming designers, fab books and contemporary household furnishings.

With 3 fab cafes to choose from this is the perfect place to stop for lunch.

4. Le Bon Marche Rive Gauche

From Merci I recommend taking a taxi to Le Bon Marche – keep your eyes open for some fab sights such as Notre Dame en route. (metro is no. 8 down to Bastille, then no. 1 to Concorde and no. 12 to Sèvres-Babylone)

Le Bon Marche is the oldest department store – with the most awesome selection of designer clothing – some of which exclusively sold there so if you haven’t found your favourite designer anywhere else in Paris chances are you’ll find them there.

 

This is where I leave you for the day and wish you a fabulous evening of wonderful French cuisine – you might like to check out Trip Advisor for their 10 best restaurants in Paris!
