Fox Valley store presents first event of spring
The sun was shining as Fox Valley hosted its first event of the spring – the Special Occasions Fayre at Sandersons Boutique Store.
The day-long event, from 11am to 5pm on 25 March, was aimed at helping customers to prepare for those special events coming up in 2018, including milestone birthdays, proms, race days and weddings.
Sanderson shoppers were welcomed with a glass of bubbly, while the first 100 guests were given goody bags.
The Sandersons team showcased carefully selected men’s and ladies occasion wear with collections from top brands including Phase Eight, Ted Baker, Hobbs and Remus Uomo.
Over in the Beauty Lounge, the store’s experts were demonstrating makeup to complete customers’ looks, while Benefit Cosmetics were taking bookings for brow waxing and tinting.
Downstairs, instore florist Fleur de Lys displayed some gorgeous arrangements for all kinds of events, while local independent businesses including magician Andy Taylor, wedding planning service You Said Yes and Anthony Oxley Photography were all on hand to discuss customers’ needs.
Upstairs, Zoe Wadsworth of Fab Events talked to customers about parties and weddings of all budgets, Natalie Mosley was available to discuss her Lucy May lingerie range, and Katie Ford from Fit4It gave a talk about her 10-week transformation plan, Shine Bright Like a Diamond.
Outside, The Gin Wagon was serving delicious cocktails and the bandstand hosted a range of music, including a rock choir, which saw a huge crowd singing along.
Sandersons store supervisor and event organiser, Amy Hodgkinson, said: “Today is about promoting all that the store has to offer, with everything from clothing to homeware perfect for wedding gifts, as well as presenting some of the best local suppliers, from Hummingbird Bridal Studio based here at Fox Valley, to Rotherham-based wedding planners You Said Yes and more. This is an annual event and we look forward to an even bigger and better event next year.”
