Luxury lingerie label Victoria’s Secret is set to fling open the doors to its first UK stores outside of London in Manchester’s Trafford Centre later this week.

Bringing the glamour of the Victoria’s Secret Angels up north, the boutique will open on Thursday August 8.

Sheffield will welcome its own store on August 13, followed by Yorskshire compatriot Leeds on August 29.

Caroline Aikman, marketing manager at the Trafford Centre, said: “Manchester is about to welcome its first ever Victoria’s Secret – and it has sparked an enormous buzz among our customers ever since the news got out.

“As the world’s most successful lingerie chain, we expect fashionistas from across the region to be beating a path to Victoria’s Secret, keen on their high-end garments and the luxury shopping experience they offer.

“Teenage shoppers will be introduced to the brand via the PINK! store, aimed at a slightly younger customer.

“Between them, they add a whole new dimension to our ladies’ apparel, and join the likes of Boux Avenue and La Senza at the top of Manchester’s shopping list.”

The American lingerie behemoth launched its first two stand-alone stores in London last year, a flagship store on Bond Street and another, smaller shop, in Westfield Stratford.
