Tuesday Shoesday

Lumberjack shoes

I am not a heel wearer but I do have a responsbility to cater for those that like wearing heels. There’s no doubt that a good pair of heels will elongate your legs and finish off a dress or skirt very nicely.  These leather heels just in from a new Italian brand, Lumberjack, are extremely comfortable thanks to the block heel and slight platform under the toes.  The colour is perfect for any outfit.  You could also wear these with jeans and a floaty top for a night out.  Very nice!  £75.00.  Two more styles to follow shortly.

Like a bit of leopard print?

DECK leopard print scarves

We went buying at the weekend (a trade show in Birmingham) and found these beauties.  Fingers crossed, they should be here by Friday 24th along with this rather fabulous Spring knitwear from DECK, just in time for our event the next day, HURRAY!  In fact, the scarf selection was SO good we bought a whole load more in other prints and colours.

A really easy way to perk up a plain top or if you’re brave, mix with other prints. £15.00

The first, but not the last, delivery from Harris Wilson

Harris Wilson Carlotta in Sunset/Ecru

This Harris Wilson top is a corker (we sold two straight out of the box).  Beautiful button detail down the back and we like the stripe contrast detail on the sleeves.  Feels fabulous.  £89.00  Just one piece per size so you’ll need to be quick if you like the look of it.  Katherine is modelling a size small.

Harris Wilson Adage Sweater in Sunset

More of this beautiful colour, called Sunset.  This sweater is super soft but a great weight to wear all year around.  Also available in cream. £125.00  Again, one piece per size.  Looks great with denim, white or even the Masai print culottes (we know because we’ve tried it all on).

And there’s more in-store so pop in and check it all out.

The Annual Spring Event

Elly Pear Pea, Potato & Feta Frittata

It’s that time of year again, time for our annual Spring ShinDig this weekend, Saturday 25th February from 11.00 a.m to 5.30 p.m.  The perfect way to browse all of our wonderful new clothing and footwear arrivals.  Everyone most welcome!

We’ll be serving a selection of Clive’s tasty titbits, there’ll be a wine tasting with a difference and a surprise gift with all purchases over £50.00 and a cheeky little discount off all purchases made on the day.

We’re busy pricing and putting our the Spring collections from Harris Wilson, Two Danes, Masai and a really, really strong collection from DECK is expected to arrive on Friday.  Think soft colours in soft knits at easy prices accessorised with beautiful scarves.  The ideal garments to wear now if you’re feeling a bit fed up with your winter wardrobe. Check out the footwear options from CARA and we do have a splendid array of Spring denim styles from MosMosh, Jonny Q, Dr Denim and Saint Tropez.

See you on Saturday!

You can tell the former designer from Masai is back on board

Masai Genna Tunic

We fell in love withi this pretty print when we went to view the Masai collection last August.  The collection is back on track with the news that the brand’s former designer has returned after an absence of 4 years. We liked it so much we bought it it in 3 garments including this tunic, a dress as well as a pair of trousers.  Wear this Genna tunic with bare legs or over white skinnes.  £77.00  Soft hues of cream, pink, coral and olive.  Just gorgeous. The culottes are are £77.00 too.  We have shorter white cotton blouses and soft fine knitwear in melon and grey which work beautifully with this print.. Just add sneakers (we have white leather sneakers from Woden arriving very shortly).

Masai Pannis Culotte

This is the Masai Iben blouse in a crisp cotton, also £77.00.

Bold colour and bold prints for next winter

Prepare yourselves, there’s a bold but very beautiful brand arriving for next winter.  We were wowed by this new Italian collection, it’s nice to see some bright colour at a time when we need it. Here’s a sneaky peek of our selection which also includes a maxi dress as well as a skirt.  We’e also just found the perfect pair of ankle boots to wear with it all.  More on those later….

Buying for Winter 2017 has started in earnest

aw07 buying and other things 023

It’s that important time of year again, buying for Winter 2017.  We’ve found some great footwear, here’s a sneaky peek of some suede ankle boots which will be arriving later in the year.  A rich navy blue and black of course (because Black is the best selling colour).  We love the stitch detail around the toes and the ankle boot is a very useful and comfortable all day height.



Great gifts

izzi rainey purses make up bags and choping boards

We absolutely love thi Britishs brand.  Unique prints designed in the UK and transferred into a very pretty selection of gifts including purses, wash bags, chopping boards, place-mats and even cards.  The products are all made in the UK as well.  Nicely priced and great little gifts.  Add a co-ordinating card if you’re buying a gift, £1.90.  Lovely.

More goodies

cashmere wool blend star sweaters in grey, navy, beige and pink

Cashmre/wool blend sweaters are in stock in navy, grey, beige and pink.  These one-size sweaters feature stars.  Just because we like a star motif and we hope you do too.  £49.95  We’ve just popped them into the window.

A wow pair of jeans don’t you think?

MosMosh Naomi 7/8 Printed Beige

These MosMosh printed jeans have literally just turned up (a nice treat for a wet, gloomy day).  We sold a pair straight out of the box, they look fantastic on.  A 7/8s shorter leg for spring with zipper detail at the ankle.  Sequin detail on both front and back pockets and a beautiful soft pale grey print.  Just add a white t-shirt and sneakers when it gets warmer.  Wear it now with a loose light knit and ankle boots.  £119.00
