Easter Weekend Style Guide

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.

Eden Spring Launch & Fashion Show!

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.

The new Smash arrivals in store may be slightly too early to wear just yet, especially in the Scottish outdoors, but they are a definite must have for the spring wish list! Three dresses that feature in the new collection offer different styles to suit all tastes.
