It’s been a fabulously exciting time both in-store (and out) with lots of new things happening! I’m currently on maternity leave and just about coming back down to earth after celebrating the arrival of my beautiful baby girl Arabella Grace Neill, finally after a long and rather arduous journey to motherhood I’m a proud Mummy to a little bundle born July 14th who has literally rocked mine and Rob’s world! She’s stolen our hearts, oh and our sleep! And yes, I’ve been a walking zombie most days but thoroughly enjoying and embracing my challenging new role as ‘Mummy’!
Our fabulous team at work have been holding the fort beautifully! A massive thank you to each and every one of them and a special mention to Charlie and all of the girls who was kept very busy looking after the Menswear department whilst Rob had a little time with us at home too. Well done team, you’re all shining stars and we are really proud of you all!
More staff stuff; You may know our A-team of girlies headed up by Kirsty includes the lovely Ashleigh, Amanda and Anne, well we’re delighted to formally welcome our newest member of the team Sarah Miles. Sarah’s bright and bubbly personality is a real hit with the Customers. She sure knows her bridal dresses and already has helped many of our ladies create absolutely stunning wedding day looks already!! We’re excited for Sarah as she attends an awards do soon and hopes to receive a ‘Best Actress’ title! Although not professionally trained Sarah’s enjoyed a dedicated and serious acting hobby since she was little… Good Luck Sarah Lovie Daaarling, we all hope that you win!
Ooooo la la! Frock talk; We’re delighted to announce the arrival of our newest label ‘D’zage‘ by leading bridal designer Veromia, these dresses are stylish and elegant and the best bit… they’re at fantastically good prices so that even Brides on a budget can really shine! (£649+). So, now in-store we’re thrilled to be able to offer something for everyone from lace to silk, fitted to full, for brides with a modest budget to those who want a designer dress for a designer day! Our fuller figure (girls with curves) collection and shorter length bridal dresses have been going down a storm too! We’re over the moon with the response and feedback that we receive about our wedding dress collection; three different Brides have recently said to us that not only is our wedding dress selection the best in Colchester but they feel the best in Essex!!!
Finally, our VIP style Mother of the Bride department has a stunning new line of ivory and black embroidered silk separates with gorgeous hats, bags and fascinators available to compliment. We’ve embraced the colour theme this season by creating a black and white window display which looks gorge even if I do say so myself!! Thanks to Kirsty & Co for this gorgeous creation, we’ve had lots of Brides ask where we found the white wicker hearts … they were spotted in Perrywood Garden Centre in Tiptree where they often have lots of silk flowers and cute wedding day table inspiring goodies! It’s definitely worth a visit if you fancy a nosey at a fab garden centre and lots of pretty things so head out to see them and grab yourself some wedding day inspiration just like I do for the wedding window displays that we create.
