For many women nightwear is not top of the agenda when it comes to fashion.

However, I beg to differ. Just because it's something you only wear indoors doesn't mean that you shouldn't put any thought into it.

So why not treat yourself to nightwear that will take your mind off all those mundane tasks around the house while at the same time making you look and feel special while lounging on the sofa.

Wendy Prudhoe, of Forest Hall, Newcastle, is a hotel receptionist, as well as a mum and with the little time she has for herself, she's keeping fit in the gym or relaxing at home. So with a little help from the lingerie department in John Lewis I hunted for some comfortable but elegant outfits.

I booked Wendy into Y Salon in Eldon Gardens. Stylist Laura added golden blonde highlights to her hair, then blow dried it into a sleek and straight style. Wendy followed this with a makeover at Prescriptives in John Lewis where Michelle Cupples applied her make-up. Michelle used the All Glitters colour story for the eyes, plush mascara to create a false eyelash effect, a bronzer designed to suit all skin tones and finished off with maple for the lips.

Looking for somewhere cool but comfortable to hang out on those long winter nights we headed to Barker & Stonehouse in Newcastle.

Relaxing on a stylish bed, Wendy wears a golden chemise silk and lace nightdress with an ivory silk dressing gown and ruby red slippers to compliment. Lying on a modern sofa, she wears luxurious gold and plum lace pyjamas with Bally pump slippers. Lounging on a cream corner sofa, Wendy wears a sultry plum silk dressing gown over a matching silk nightdress and beaded slippers.

John Lewis offers a wide range in nightwear, ranging from the comfortable, to sophisticated, to sexy. Lounging around at home doesn't have to be dull and drab and with price reductions at the winter sale there's even more reasons to treat yourself.

NPrices are subject to change due to seasonal reductions.

NOur thanks to Barker & Stonehouse, Y Salon, Prescriptives and the lingerie team at John Lewis for all their help.
