There's nothing better than a secret sale. Well, maybe there is.. a secret sale with a secret code takes some beating. You need to know the key, otherwise you can't get the magical reduction. I like it when stores do this kind of promo. It shows they are in touch with the fact there are savvy shoppers out there willing to go further to earn money off. Perseverance pays. Well, this week and next if you type "MAY20" into the box when you are at the Oasis online checkout you get 20% off. Simple. Oasis is a store finely tuned into the needs of the young British woman;  the English, Scottish, Irish or Welsh Rose if you like. When I think of the typically British summer fete, garden party, street party, school sports day, I think of women in the kind of smart and pretty occasion wear Oasis knows how to create. So, seeing as it is almost, allegedly, the summer, and we have the Jubilee around the corner I chose some patriotically hued prettiness with a sweet fashion edge to give you inspiration... Scroll further down to see what Bethan Holt has chosen for her top five..

Double split maxi skirt £50

Lace collar navy top  £28

Fashion Junior's Top Five...

I love Oasis's prints- just the right mix of trend and summery loveliness. Plus, I'm going through a tea dress obsession right now and the print on the one I've chosen is one of the best I've seen. It fits the mood without being too twee- the high street girl's alternative to Prada's postcard dresses.

Tropical jeans £48
Tan Jesus sandal £28

Scarf print shirt £60

Chintzy tea dress £85 

Bow sun hat £21
Go forth and shop, we're sure it's what the Queen would want...
