It’s party time!  I can hardly believe it’s been 10 year since we first opened our doors in Haslemere all those years ago.  That’s an excellent reason for a bit of a bash don’t you think? We wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’t for all of you so a huge thank you!

We hope you’re free to join us next Saturday in the shop for what promises to be a fun-filled day.

There will be a gift with all purchases, Clive’s Nibbly Bits and a glass of something sparkly and pink. The Raffle to Win a Weekend in Devon (see previous post) will also be running and we’ll be announcing the lucky winner later in the afternoon. Raffle tickets also available for mail-order customers who won’t be able to jion us on the day.

Win a Week here in our Birthday Raffle

It’s not every day you celebrate reaching the grand old age of 10!  That’s a lovely thing to celebrate as a small business so THANK YOU!

We’ve decided to mark the occasion with a very special Raffle.  Win a weekend in Devon for 6 people (2 night stay) by buying a raffle ticket.

All proceeds from the raffle ticket sales will be sent directly to the Romanian shelter where Dora spent her early life, Help for Homeless Dogs.  Cristina who runs the shelter looks after around 40-60 dogs at any one time and always needs help to feed the dogs in her care.  Dora was found on the side of a road as a very small puppy (no sign of a mother) and undoubtedly her start in life here helped enormously.

Raffle tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday 21st June) as we’d like to raise as much money as possible and no doubt there will be a few customers who won’t be able to come along to our Birthday Bash next week.  £5.00 a stripAny customers who wish to purchase tickets over the phone can call the office on 01428 641771.  the winning ticket will be drawn next Saturday afternoon.

Black Jumpsuit

124 (2)

Yours truly modelling a rather stylish and very good quality black jumpsuit.  It’s a linen/cotton blend and feels much more expensive in the flesh, always a result!  A flattering v-neck with little button detail down the front, fitted around the waist with wide legs.  With size zipper. Add heels for a dressier look.

Sizes 8-18 in stock (sorry, sold size 10 this afternoon, I am wearing a size 12).

Dungaree Dress, hooray!

New Season MosMosh

Mosmosh Sunn Portman

The first of the new season denim from MosMosh has rrived.  A what a fine style it is too.  The Sunn Portman is a crop straight leg which has been crafted with just the right amount of stretch for a flattering fit.  I saw the size 28 on a customer earlier in the week and can confirm they look wonderful on.  Wear now with a t-shirt and trainers or dress up with a silky top or sequin camisole (as shown) for a dressier occasion.  The shorter leg will be perfect with ankle boots come the winter.
