Painting the Town Pink!
First and foremost we would like to talk about the amazing fundraiser we took part in this Past Month! October was Brest Cancer Awareness month and Action Cancer decided to paint the town pink. So, we held a mimosa morning in all three of our stores!
People were able to come in and tell their story about their battle and about the battles they have helped their friends and family through while having a drink and a nibble. This was a huge success and we were able to raise a good bit of money for the charity!
Not only did we deck all three of our stores out with pink and white, we also dressed in pink too! Everyone got on their pink outfits and pink lipstick! We are so lucky to be asked to take part in this amazing fundraiser and we are thrilled to say we raised over £250 for such a great cause. So many women and men are impacted by breast cancer every day so it was an honour to be able to take part in such a great cause close to all our hearts!
Cookstown Revamp!Alice’s husband, Tiernan, got roped into helping out with another revamp! Cookstown got a facelift and it looks amazing! Cookstown is separated into two sections, The front of shop is all casual looks mixed with items perfect for a big night out then there is a walkway down to the Wedding Suite! Cookstown has now got more space for all the latest fashion and products!
Photoshoot day has come and gone! You may have seen us running up and down the road in a few fancy dresses and casual looks! We needed to take plenty of pictures of all the beautiful Autumn/Winter 2022 stock so we could revamp the website a little! Did you all get a look at the website!? We LOVE it! But then again, we are bias. It’s so refreshing to give the website a new look and makes all the difference to shopping online.
We had the amazing photographer, Paula Donnelly, visiting us and capturing us in all our glory! We are so pleased with the results! We were also very lucky the Aviary Bar let us take over their premises to get the most glamorous pictures!
With the photoshoot there were so many looks to keep track of and I couldn’t possibly put them all into this month’s newsletter! So we’ve put together a separate blog post so you can all see who wore what and with what! Now there were four wonderfully fashionable and stylish women in one place so you can imagine that there were a few items that all four ladies wanted to wear! But not everyone could fit into the same coat! But, as you can all see, there were plenty of looks to go around!
What were your favourite looks of the photoshoot?
As a new season is beginning we realised we needed more stock! So a trip to Paris was well over due. Kate and I jetted off to do a little shopping for the stores. Paris was beyond beautiful but it was definitely hard work. We went from Tuesday to Thursday and on the Wednesday we did a LOT of running. We did over twenty thousand steps running up and down the streets of Paris to ensure our customers got the best accessories that we could find.
We have so many beautiful scarves, gloves and items of jewellery coming your way and we cannot wait to show you it all! The boxes will be with us soon, so make sure to keep an eye on all our socials to be the first to know what’s in!
We flew from Belfast to Paris and we got to see so many of the amazing sights Paris has to offer! The food was amazing and the wine was even better! Such an amazing trip and it will be so worthwhile when all our boxes land into store!
As our online store is growing every day we need to ensure that we have everything up to date! So it was time for our annual stock take! Every item in each of our three stores, stock room and outlook store had to be counted! Thankfully we had the help of a few handy men, and we had a few nifty scanners that were able to help us keep track of every item!
We were scanning for hours! The Omagh store was closed from 4pm that afternoon so we could really dive right in and get scanning! Come 7.15 we were well ready for home!
That's all the excitement with team style over the past few weeks! We hope your past month was as jam packed and exciting as our own!
