Mother's Day Gift Ideas - March 11th

 

Thinking of a special gift for Mothers Day can be tricky.  Flowers? Over in a fortnight. Chocolates? Well in my house they're gone within the hour.  Ditto Champagne.  What can you give your mum that will last?  What would she enjoy?  

 

Well, she'd probably most enjoy spending time with you.  So, how about giving her a gift experience with us that you can do together?  Not only spending time together, but learning about the colours, shapes and styles of clothes that is right for you both.  You'll discover exactly which colours are right for your tones, which shapes work best for you, and also which to avoid.  You'll fall in love with your wardrobe all over again, and, most importantly, when you're out at the shops, you'll know just what to look for.

 

A Gold package day with us means finding out all of this in a fun and informal way.  Over a coffee, we'll together explore colour, including make-up, and after a delicious lunch (with bubbles), we'll uncover the secrets of style before hitting the shops together to put it all into practice.  Think it might be something your mum would enjoy?  Clients Mandy & Pam who visited in February said:

 

 

"Just wanted to say a big Thankyou to Victoria for a wonderful day out on Tuesday when I took my mum and I to Frankie & Ruby to be restyled! I now have a brand new wardrobe 3 dresses, skirt, jumper and 4 tops for less than £140 all in great condition, a real clear idea of what I should be wearing and the colours. My mum and I loved our day and I thoroughly recommend Victoria for all her knowledge, patience and kindness. It is just a brilliant day out. Thanks Victoria"

 

And here's what her mum Pam had to say; "I agree a brilliant Mother and Daughter day culminating in Victoria taking us shopping and applying the colour and styling rules she had given us Victoria is a very warm approachable lady who is passionate about what she does. Thank you Victoria"

 

 

OK, I'm blushing now, but it was amazing fun!  And if you'd like to read more about other's experiences of our Mother & Daughter days, have a look at the two stories below of our wonderful clients Avril and Annabel and the story of Tracey and her mum Denise.  If you'd like to see more of the packages we can offer, keep scrolling!

Have you ever seen someone walk past you, & they are just glowing?  They are probably wearing a colour that is perfect for them, & we can do the same for you.

You’ll have great fun comparing your swatches over coffee, and then we'll show you which foundation & lipstick tones are perfect for you – and you’ll see how amazing you all look when it comes together at the end.  There'll also be time to browse the rails of our dress agency - you may just find a bargain!
