Lyons: handbags vs heels Facebook contest

Coffee brand Lyons is giving all ‘football widows’ the chance to bag themselves either a Mulberry handbag or a pair of Jimmy Choo heels to coincide with the European Football Championship.

The British brand is asking ladies, who it says are set to come second to Rooney, Gerrard and Walcott in their other half’s affections this summer, to enter a much more nail-biting competition: handbag versus heels. ‘Football widows’ are asked to make a tricky decision and vote for what they’d rather win – handbag or heels. Whichever gets the most votes will be given to one lucky winner, chosen at random.

The competition, which launches to coincide with England’s first match against France on 11 June 2012, will run on the brand’s Facebook page throughout the Euro Championships.
