Lucy Loves Violet Opens Boutique At Afflecks, Manchester
Posted on September 27 2017
September has been a month for change and excitement at Lucy Loves Violet! We started the month with a boutique in Altrincham at The Old Post Rooms, and we end the month having closed the Altrincham boutique and opened a gorgeous new shop inside Afflecks, the iconic building in the Northern Quarter of Manchester.
Ever since I launched Lucy Loves Violet at the beginning of 2017 I have wanted to open a shop in Afflecks, however due to there being a similar shop already in existence in Afflecks I had to be patient and wait for a shop space to come available that was far away from the existing shop to not be an issue and cause conflict. I did try and be patient, but kept in touch with the lovely Team at Afflecks so I wouldn't be forgotten about!
Well, out of the blue, at the beginning of September the similar shop in Afflecks decided to close and move online for personal reasons and guess who was offered the space! My gentle stalking of the Management Team at Afflecks had paid off!
I decided to close the Altrincham shop, as it had been quite quiet and go for Afflecks. The shop needed decorating, so once the walls and floor were painted I had 3 days to turn the shop around before we opened - and it was hectic to say the least but we did it! The walls were still being wallpapered at 5pm, the day before we opened so it was down to the wire, but we opened successfully on Saturday 23rd September and we are so excited about the future!
We are having a launch party on Saturday 7th October with live music by Carrie-Anne from The Glamophones so we look forward to seeing you there.
