The Lilac Pages giveaway: Aspinal passport covers

You know how much I love travelling, both for work and for pleasure, so I thought it's only fitting to do a travel-themed giveaway... As you know I have a passion for travelling in style, and of course part of that comes with the right accessories. As I walked by my local Aspinal store yesterday, these little babies caught my eye in the window, and I thought, "Perfect!".


I'm giving away two lizard-print leather passport covers, one purple and one turquoise. They look beautiful with their silk lining and silver-coloured corner protectors... I would love one for myself, but my Smythson yellow initial embossed one is still too young to be retired, so I will live vicariously through you in the meanwhile.


Wouldn't these babies be the perfect companions to a trip for the Summer holidays? The question is... which one do you like best? I am a bit purple-biased so I think that's my personal favourite, but the cool turquoise one brings up images of South Seas and long white beaches, it's too hard to pick!


Don't forget to read the fine print before entering!

Who can enter? 
Anyone can enter this giveaway competition, these covers are made for travel so they will go to their winners anywhere in the world, by post.

How can you enter?
It's all about telling me A) which passport cover you like most and B) what you have planned for your next trip.

You then have a few options to enter and tell me your answers:

When is the deadline for entering?
This competition will be open for three weeks, so make sure you enter by March 9th, 2013, 12noon London time.

How will the winners be picked?
I will put the names on Random.org, as usual, and announce the two winners on this page. There will be two winners, each will get their choice of colour, either purple or turquoise, unless both chose the same colour in which case the name which comes up top will get their pick.

When will the winners get their prizes?
As always, as soon as I have the address details, I will ship the passport covers to their owners.

Good luck and happy travels!

Love the purple! Our next trip is to the Turks and Caicos in two months with our little one...a much needed escape from this cold and dreary weather!

I adore the turquoise one (although it is tough choice). My next trip will be for business to London and shortly afterwards for fun to Venice. I can't wait for that break in my daily routine. :)
And while I'm at it: I think you are a very stylish woman and I love reading your blog, S.

Love the purple one. My next trip will be to Paris to watch Saut Hermes and possibly see the Hermes museum.
Love your style!

I follow on Blogloving but clicked on your google follower. I love the turquoise, our next trip is supposed to be Corsica, but I'm not sure that I really fancy it, has anyone been?

LittleS said...

@Jo, Turks & Caicos will be amazing, I love that you will be taking the little one along, it's the only way I do vacation as well!

@Olfactoria's Travels, I need to go back to Venice, it's been too long!

@IP, I hope you have fun in my birth city. Good luck for the competition!

@B&P, thanks for logging on, I went to Corsica when I was tiny so have some blurry memories but it's really lovely, a mix of mountain and sea that is pretty unique.

I love the turquoise cover. My next trip is a work trip to France, then we're thinking about trying to escape somewhere hot before the summer too. I follow via GFC.

Love to have a sophisticated purple one!I actually was passing by Aspinal's Canary Wharf branch and was very tempted to buy a cover for my brand spanking new 1st British passport which I am about to receive in a few weeks!
I'm excited about my trip to Rome late in spring and would be lovely to have my passport all dressed up in a girly and shiny Aspinal outfit so we travel in style!Im your fan follower forever LittleS.Nodira
