News / Fashion boutiques
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.
Time for a catch up...
Last friday was a great night here at Eden as we held our annual late night spring launch.
With the evenings getting lighter and the sunshine, it was nice to see all the current spring-wear pieces out of their boxes, on their hangers and being appreciated.
The boutique stayed open until 8pm to allow people to stop by and enjoy a drink and some nibbles, whilst they browsed the new collections.
Cava, cupcakes and catwalk
An exciting project we are currently organising is our next fashion show! This year, we thought we'd mix things up and host the fashion show in store!
This week the models have been trying on outfits ahead of the show and we have been planning the music and goodie bags.
The event offers complimentary cava on arrival, as well as cupcakes and of course the fashion show.
An arrival time of 2.30pm for guests then followed by a 3pm start for the show. The fashion show will be around 20 minutes to half an hour. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to shop the clothes feautured in the show.
Places are limited (and selling fast!) for our exclusive show but tickets are available for purchase either in store or on our website. Tickets are priced at just £5 each.
I hope that's kept you up to date with Eden. As always, thanks for taking time read this weeks blog post.
With Mother's day soon approaching on the 26th, it is still not too late to pick up a few special gifts to give this Sunday. Even if you are just looking for a gift for a different occasion then this blog post may offer you some useful ideas.
Jewellery gifts aren't the most original but that doesn't mean they are boring. Jewellery can be thoughtful and beautiful and is something a person can keep for a lifetime.
The first item on the gift guide is Sence jewellery, a wonderful Copenhagen brand.
Stunning semi precious stone necklaces are statement pieces and the best thing about necklaces are one size fits all!
A bracelet is the perfect fit for treating someone to jewellery that is both unique and precious. This subtle bracelet is laced with semi precious stones and is sure to be appreciated.
These sophisticated earrings are worn gold plated metal with semi precious stones which make wonderful pressies.
Shown below are some of the soy based candles that are not only thoughtful but genuinely smell amazing. They have a typical burning time of 40 hours and come in a handy gift box.
A classic gift to give is candles and we have 7 different message candles in the range to choose from. "Instant happy woman just add bubbles" and "this house runs on love, laughter and prosecco" are our top picks for a mothers day present.
There are a good selection hydestyle bags that suit everyday and can be used on both sides to turn a day time look into night one. The bags are available in arrange of beautiful shiny metallic and are irresistibly stylish.
They are also made of real leather and all have inner pockets and come with straps.
On the reverse side, the bags are plain suede colours as one example shows below.
Besides the messenger style bags there is also the small cross body bag, which looks incredible with a leather jacket.
Buying clothing for others can be tricky, however this gorgeous floral print blouse is super flattering for all shapes and has a contemporary take on florals.
As for a cheaper alternative a scarf is a good idea. Brighten any outfit with this lovely colourful accessory.
I hope you have a lovely Sunday and celebrate with loved ones. To find out more information about any of these items feel free to click on the links and pictures.
We're gearing up to celebrate tonight as Eden is now 13 (we are now officially a teenager!).
Still lots to prepare - including the goodie bags! Our suppliers, agents and brands have been fantastic donating items - which we will draw throughout the month of October.
Finally just want to say a massive thank you to all our lovely customers (we could not have got this far without you) your love & support is the best!
