Watch the brand new Debenhams TV advert


Our brand new TV advert has landed, and you’ll be able to catch it on TV until 13 November 2009. The first screening will be during the 8.30pm edition of Coronation Street on 19 October or you can watch it below…

You’ll spot that sought-after dog cushion by Ben de Lisi in there, along with some great outfit ideas for women, men and kids.

The location: If you’ve ever been to Eltham Palace you’ll probably recognise that gorgeous 1930’s Art Deco interior. I spotted it straight away. Not only is it a great place for a party, it’s full of elegant and ingenious design features.

The director: Thomas Napper was the perfect choice to bring our story to life, having worked as Second Unit Director on blockbusters such as ‘Pride and Prejudice’ and ‘Atonement’.

The voice: Did you guess it? The voiceover was Paul McGann, a one time Dr Who.

The music: Love is the Drug by Roxy Music is one of those songs that everyone seems to recognise despite being released over 30 years ago. Just the thing to get us all in the mood for the upcoming party season.

We asked Michael Sharp, Deputy Chief Executive at Debenhams about the idea behind the new advert:

“Design is at the heart of everything we do and our new ad reflects that. Our TV campaign allows us to showcase our design heritage and remind our customers what we’re about in a way that no other retailer on the high street can do. Stylish, exciting products that are accessible to everyone.”

    who designed the silver sparkly backless dress worn by the girl standing at the bar …how much is it and do they have it in leeds i must have it …please tell me xxxxxxxxxxx

  • http://blog.debenhams.com Editor

    The dress is a Limited Edition design from Star by Julien Macdonald. It’s been very popular on our website and we’ve sold out unfortunately.

    If you would like to find out about any stores that have stock available, please contact our customer services team on 08445 616 161.

    I hope you find one.

    my girlfriend really likes the silver sequince dress in this new advert, do you know where i can get this from? as ive searched all over the debenhams website and rang them and they said they do not stock it? i also looked on the julien mcdonald website aswel but had no luck

  • http://blog.debenhams.com Editor

    Thanks for your comment Kev.

    If you are referring to the floor length silver dress from Star by Julien Macdonald, then I’m afraid we have sold out of this on the website. It is a Limited Edition design so we make fewer of them – you have to be quick to grab one.

    That said, you might be able to find one in one of our stores or have it ordered for you.

    Please contact our customer services team on 08445 616 161 and someone should be able to help.

    the dog is beautiful …where did you find him.

  • Helen

    Is this advert shot at Eltham Palace? I think I recognise the art deco background. We got married there nearly 25 years ago!

  • kate palmer

    who is the man in the ad?

  • http://blog.debenhams.com Editor

    To those who asked, the cute little dog was a Pug called George from a dog modelling agency! The rather handsome man is an actor called Travis Oliver. Some people think he looks like one of the actors from ‘Love Actually’ but he wasn’t actually in the film.

  • Nicky

    Please can you tell me if the lost earring is from Debenhams and the product code if so?

    Thank you

  • Kirsty

    I phoned your customer service line to see if the Red Herring Special Edition dark grey sequin dress was going to be stocked in any Edinburgh stores and after being passed around 4/5 people I was put through to what I think was an Edinburgh store and told that they didn’t know if they would be getting it in or not and that Glasgow might have it. I found this service poor and am still none the wiser as to where I can buy this dress, I really expected better from Debenhams. It now seems like the advert is very misleading and a blatant attempt to stir up hype for the store for items that no one is actually going to be able to buy.

  • tracy

    The item number for the red dog cushion is 3290010276. The cushion has been a best seller but I hope you manage to get your hands on one. Call 08445 616 161 for your nearest Debenhams stockist.

    Hi. This is a very different question from those posted above. However, I was wondering if you could help me or put me in touch with someone who could.

    I am currently working on my dissertation concerning the use of advertising in music and considering the differences in background music in TV advertisements when targetting either a male or female audience.

    I noticed that you chose a song by Roxy Music. When you considered this choice did you feel this was more applicable to a target audience and why? Therefore, as well as considering the products and the season did you take the audience into account when choosing the background music?

    Any feedback would be great if possible!
    Thanks very much, Jennifer

  • anon
