OMG we're famous... only joking, but we were on Channel 4 News!
On the 15th of June, our first official day open after three months closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the lovely Channel 4 News team came in to interview Donna about re-opening in such an uncertain retail landscape. Of course she was an absolute natural in front of the camera, with no idea what she was being asked and zero time to prep! It was a great informative insight into the world of independent stores reopening vs big names such as Selfridges. If you haven't seen it, here's the link: https://www.channel4.com/news/shoppers-return-to-the-high-street-as-stores-reopen-in-england (our bit starts at 2:00)
Well, well, well... one month into re-opening and we are absolutely loving it, especially being able to see out beautiful customers face-to-face again. If there's one thing we missed the most over lockdown, it's definitely social interaction. Our 'Shopping by Appointment' service has been working great for both us and our customers. It's been a great way to interact, with personal styling and advice, but most importantly it's fun and lovely to have a chat! Click here to book the upstairs boutique to yourself for 60 mins (for free). Walk-ins are still welcomed, this just avoids having to queue.
Ooh and even more exciting news... we were featured on a styling video by the one and only Mark Heyes! Not only is he our favourite TV fashion expert, but he's made a wonderful IGTV video with picks from his favourite independent boutiques featured on www.downyourhighstreet.co.uk and Chloe James Lifestyle is up first! Take a look here.
Finally, I just wanted to mention our face masks. Since the announcement has been made that from the 24th wearing face masks will be required in shops, lots of our designs have completely sold out! But, we do still have a variety of gorgeous face masks in various designs, including mens, available now and on pre-order. Click here to view our range of face mask and stay safe in style.
Most importantly, we hope everyone is safe and well. Thank you for keeping our little business going through these tough times. And thank you to everyone for supporting us, making sure we are hopefully still here on the other side of this!
Have a great weekend,
