As it is an exciting week here at the boutique with Alana, our intern's last week and also our fashion show, we thought we'd write a blog about a day in the life here at Eden.
We've been busy with the final preparations for our upcoming fashion show this Sunday. It is an in store event which we're naming - Catwalk, cava and cupcakes! If this sounds of interest to you and you would like to attend the event, there are still a few spaces left: http://bit.ly/2ofoCos click on the link to book your tickets.
That meant today was spent organizing the different outfits for our four models to showcase on Sunday. Then once we had figured out all the outfits to be worn, the running order then came together.
Another part of our day featured a visit from Intelligent POS digital marketing manager, Alan. We operate the till system through Intelligent, and he was visiting us for a chat about the system. This was a helpful discussion answering questions such as Eden's origin story and the challenges faced and overcome.
A new brand that came to our attention - Miss ShortHair, which we ending up placing orders for around 20 different kinds of scarfs. Hopefully we will receive the order in time for our fashion show.
Pictured below is one of the gorgeous Pom Pom scarfs that will be in store soon!
We appreciate you reading this weeks blog and hope you've enjoyed a little insight into a (typical) day in the life and some of the goings on here at Eden.
Easter weekend is here and we thought we would share some style advice to make for a fashionable few days ahead.
Meadow Print Maxi Dress
A floral day dress is great for a garden party or going out for lunch. With a tie at the back, it gives the wearer the ability to cinch in at the waist for a flattering look.
Protected Species Commuter
Depending where you'll be spending your easter weekend and what activities you'll be getting up to, this protected species waterproof jacket is perfect for keeping dry and looking stylish at the same time.
Hydestyle London Bag
A big shiny metallic bag is a must have this season! It can really help lift a casual outfit so why not show off your statement bag around town.
Nomads Print Jacket
The star print jacket by Nomads is a fantastic reminder of the brands genius for creating affordable and ethically produced clothes that are actually stylish. Not only are they contemporary but also are different enough from anything you'd find on the high street.
Fari Short Sleeved Top
This printed top is perfect for a chilled weekend at home as it is bright, cheerful and almost looks like a pattern of tiny eggs!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and thank you for taking time to read our blog post this week! Links to any of the products mentioned are available and are also stocked in store.
This AW16 we introduced Nomads to Eden. It's only been in-store for a short time (less than a fortnight) but it's flying off the rails. Designed in the UK, ethical and fair trade too.
