If you are the type of person whose eye is caught by an interesting fabric design, a quirky accessory or a gift with a twist, then you really should make time to visit Lilac Rose clothes shop on Bridge Street.
With their creative flair, owners Mark and Amanda's vision was to bring a bit of theatre and fun to the high street, with a central cast of beautiful British clothing from designers including Louche, Fever, Emily & Fin, Closet and Miss Patina. Brands are chosen in particular for their use of colour and fabrics, but most of all for their great fit and their slightly edgier take on the retro theme. The pricing is consciously 'high street', but you don't need to worry about seeing the same dress being sported by the masses, as Mark and Amanda only stock a small number of each item and are constantly on the lookout to find new and interesting additions. This all adds to the sense of excitement and discovery at Lilac Rose and with a generous boudoir styled changing room area and a very helpful and knowledgeable team, it's very easy to get caught up in the fun.
Supporting the central clothing range is an inspired collection of jewellery and accessories - from the utterly glamorous to the quirky and humorous. Lilac Rose is a fantastic place to find presents as well - from books and bags to cards and wrapping paper, all shot through with an underlying eclectic theme. You can also buy from their really easy to use online shop which offers a handy 'click and collect' service too.
