Our 70% off winter sale continues until the end of January!
Spring/Summer Stock is arriving!
We are so excited to see the arrival of all the new stock for Spring Summer 2020.
The stock is what our new owner, Lara, has ordered with the helping hand and guidance of Martha. Behind the scenes they have been buying stocks from Lara’s other business premises, and travelling to London to see the ranges from the suppliers head quarters.
Lara and Martha have bought some lovely things and the brands have some very strong collections for Spring/Summer. Lara is a bridal designer for the label Lara B Couture and she used to work as a Lingerie designer prior to opening her Lara B bridal business. Lara is very familiar with how the industry works, the manufacture of clothing and most of all she has an ‘eye’ for all things beautiful!
Martha said “Lara will be just fine. She knows what she is doing and she knows the Martha V customer.” Lara see’s many Mothers of the brides and grooms, through her bridal business and certainly knows what they require and want. This made buying the occasion wear far easier for her. “Lara has first hand information for the occasion wear side of the business and she certainly opened my eyes as to what is changing and the feel that some wedding’s are becoming. She has bought some styles I wouldn’t have done before because she has some exciting twists to add to these, using her designer skills.” said Martha.
“I want to add a bit of Lara B Couture into the services Martha V can offer. Women deserve to have something special and personal. Something the High Street has sadly lost over the last few years. I will strive for the same excellence Martha V has always been, and more!” Lara Kinnett
Lara and her staff will be able to add elements of bespoke details to some of the occasion wear pieces this season. Lara has some truly stunning beaded applique’s and stylish cover up options to add into the services at Martha V. Lara wants to keep Martha V’s name firmly on Newmarket’s High Street, and she knows how hard that is right now. However, she also knows that the customers are loyal and that’s why she isn’t changing much at all. Martha Fraser, the founder of the shop, got it right! Customers love the brands that are currently stocked, so they are all staying.
Lara does want to add a few younger brands into the offering and has already done this by adding some through the current brands we stock. Martha did laugh with her while they were buying, as she certainly has added some ‘different’ style options. Lara is very confident that women of a more mature age are dressing younger. And why not! Every women can dress age appropriately and still look stylish and younger. It’s having the knowledge and expertise to do it, and that’s where Martha V staff can help.
Our staff are always on hand to help, advise and give honest support in creating amazing outfits. Most of Martha’s team of staff are staying on, so you will still see Helen, Lorraine, Annie and Liz’s friendly faces. We also have a lovely new member of the team called Daniella, who you will start to get to know on your next visits. And of course Lara. She will be in the shop on certain days of the week, seeing customers and working behind the scenes making sure the running is as smooth and efficient as it always has been.
New label for 2020!
Lara has added one new range to the collection this season. A Spanish occasion wear range called Gabriela Sanchez. The style is elegant and stylish with simple tailored shapes but with such a wow factor. We are excited to start showcasing this range at the end of January in store.
Our casual wear stocks are just arriving and will be on the shop floor in the coming weeks now. Our Joseph Ribkoff and Frank Lyman stocks are already on the rails and getting off to a good start. Betty Barclay, Hatley, Tinta, Robel and Marble stocks are arriving in the next week or so, so again will be ready to try and buy very soon. It’s really lovely seeing some colour in store and the feel of Spring heading our way!
We hope to see lots of you soon.
Lara and her amazing staff X
