Mother's Day gives us all the chance to send some love back to the woman who has probably been the most influential in our lives.

We have some lovely Mother's Day ideas here at Cucumber, just scroll down to see, and for the first time ever, we are offering a 15% off Mother's Day discount valid until Sunday 22nd March. Use the discount code MUM15 at checkout.

We've also done a quickfire roundup on the origins of Mother's Day, and why it remains a  most relevant holiday.






Mother's Day Gift Guide


Here's your chance to nab the perfect Mother's Day gift (and maybe something for you too!)


Navy Robe

Our Navy Robe is the perfect cover-up, whether after a steaming hot bath or after a laze in the sun (if it ever appears!) We love the inner tie and simple, elegant cut. Also available in Silver.


Silver V Neck Top and Silver Harem Trousers

Some of Cucumber's classic essentials.  This silver v neck can work all day with jeans or under a blazer, and still feel fresh in the evening to match with our super popular harem trousers. Both also available in Navy.


Shell Button Top

A personal favourite, our Shell Button Top looks elegant whether lounging in bed or racing around town.  Cucumber loves tying it low over jeans for a smart-casual look.


Moss V Neck Dress

This is the magic dress that looks good on everyone - another classic essential from Cucumber. We have sold this shape from day one and the feedback we receive on it is lovely and wonderful. Also comes in Rose and Navy, and in cap sleeves style in Navy and Silver.


Stone Tiered Dress


Thinking ahead a bit here, but Mother's Day marks the march towards high spring and summer. Our  Stone Tiered Dress will become a wardrobe favourite for its easy style and uncrushable, unflappable elegance. Pockets too! Also available in Coral.

That's just a small selection of ideas for Mother's Day. Remember we have free Second Class Delivery (and returns) as well as a Next Day Delivery option too if you've left it to the last minute!



Cucumber and Coronavirus

It seems that the new going out, is staying in.  The last few weeks have been all about intimate dinners with good friends and getting on with to-do lists for rainy days.  Our kitchen has never looked so clean!  The challenges are great and our hearts go out to anyone and everyone who has been affected. 

For us, working  from home has meant we are wearing our Cucumber 24/7 - yoga, early morning dog walk, endless skype meetings, clearing out that cupboard and meeting friends - we have you covered.

In other news, we are sorry to say that due to all the chaos surrounding the spread of coronavirus, we have decided to put the launch of our new collection on hold.  It will be coming as soon as we feel the time is right, so please bear with us and keep following, reading and contacting us.  We love your support and appreciate every word!  You will be the first to know when our lovely new collection is launching.

In the meanwhile, all our other beautiful  pieces are available as usual, and remember, this week we are offering a special Mother's Day 15% off discount -  use the code MUM15 at checkout.

Whether you are still strolling the streets full of spring blossom, or whether you are at home with the door shut and a cupboard full of pasta, we think we could all do with a faithful, interested, non-judgmental friend (no, we're not talking dogs). Enter, this handy dandy app lets you create a virtual friend who is 'always there to listen and talk'. Intrigued? We are!

Balls, hunts, royals, tweed skirts, Mustique, HIV, sex shows, and an Agatha Christie-style will, Lady Glenconner's book, Lady in Waiting: My Extraordinary Life in the Shadow of the Crown, defies anyone not to have their jaws dropped wide open. In what seems a tale too incredible to be true, this is a brilliant memoir, and one that had us laugh, cry and stamp our feet (in a ladylike fashion) along with the author. A must read, perfect for passing the hours.



Happy Mother's Day!
