You Can Buy a Surface Blush Blend Signature Type Cover in the UK

Posted on April 8, 2019 by Paul Thurrott in Microsoft Surface with 6 Comments

Attention UK-based Surface fans: John Lewis & Partners is now selling a unique Blush Blend Signature Type Cover for Surface Pro 6.

“Discover the new, beautiful ‘Blush Blend’ Signature Type Cover exclusively available at John Lewis & Partners,” a tweet by Surface UK notes. “We love the blend of colors and it looks even more fantastic in-person.”

Coming as I do from U.S., I’m unfamiliar with John Lewis & Partners, but the firm appears to offer everything from furniture and design services to flooring and windows services to beauty and optician services to financial services and a lot more. A lot of services, basically.

And from what I can tell of the Blush Blend Signature Type Cover, it’s your basic Signature Type Cover, with the same Platinum face—keyboard, touchpad, and Alcantara-based wrist rest—but with a unique, pastel blush design on the external cover.

“The color changes with light and motion,” the site notes. It appears to work with Surface Pro 3, 4, and 5/2017 as well, and costs £149.99. That’s about $195 US.

    John Lewis is a relatively high end UK department store, so yes they sell a bit of everything. From memory they have around 30 department stores in most of the big UK cities and a group of around 250 supermarkets going under the name Waitrose.


    The "and Partners" bit is because the business has been employee owned for over a century so they don't have staff, they have Partners who get a cut of the profits and a say in how it's run.


    In short if you want to sell a product somewhere thats "premium" but still high street rather than a boutique then JLP is probably the best place over here to do it.


    Source: I worked for them for 10 years.

    UK prices include VAT (Sales tax, currently 20%). I believe in the US they generally don't so the comparison prices would be more like $163. Basically exactly the same price as any other Signature Type Cover.

    Paul,

    John Lewis is what you'd call a department store.
