This week, we’ve spotted Pandora leather bracelets featured in some of the top magazines. It’s clear to see why fashion editors have their eye on these pieces – leather bracelets have always been stylish and popular in jewellery, ans as Spring blossoms into Summer, the leather bracelets make a casual way of wearing your charms.

Looking forward to our Summer Garden Party!

Just spoken to Michaela from Lola Rose, who has confirmed that she will be attending both of our Summer Garden Parties this year. This is exciting news for us, and for everyone attending who is a fan of Lola Rose. At our Mallory Court Garden Party last year, Michaela brought an entire table of Lola Rose jewellery – many pieces which we hadn’t even seen before ourselves. Before the end of the day, she had me draped in pieces to match my Garden Party dress!

I’m very much looking forward to this years Garden Party, and desperately hoping for sunshine on the day so we can drink Pimms in the Mallory Court gardens, which are just stunning on a brilliant Summers day.

The only question now is, what dress to wear?

In Training for Race for Life

With the first of our 3 Race for Life events just a few weeks away, the entire fabulous team are starting training for the races. Jo, owner of fabulous, will be running with the team at all 3 races, whilst the rest of us are running at our local events. No worries for Jo though, being a keen runner throughout the year anyway, I’m sure she’ll breeze through each of the races!!

Here in Leamington, we’re beginning our training with regular jogging sessions, as we are determined to run the race this year, and raise even more money for Cancer Research UK. It’s a fantastic way to raise money for chairty, and the atmosphere on the day is absolutely incredible.

 Running the event as part of team fabulous is great – we usually have around 50 fabulous customers joining us, who all receive a pink fabulous t-shirt, a Nomination Bracelet with the Pink Ribbon breast cancer link, and a glass of bubbly at the finish line. If you’re going to raise money for charity and run Race for Life 2010, you may as well do it in style!  

There are still a few places left at the races in Milton Keynes and Leamington, to run as part of the fabulous team – so if you’d like to join us get in touch asap and we’ll sign you up!

Keep up to date with our fundraising and wish us luck with our training!

Be the Face of fabulous

We’re looking for two friends to star in our 5th birthday campaign. You and a friend will be professionally styled for our photoshoot, which will take place in July. You’ll both win an on-line portfolio of photos, a set of designer jewellery from fabulous, an hour of personal style consultancy and a hair and make-up session. Images of the winners modelling fabulous jewellery will feature in our mailing campaign, on our website and in our store windows.  Enter now!

Here’s the kind of image you’ll star in:

Happy Birthday for May!

For those of you born in May, and have a birthday coming up – Happy Birthday! Your birthstone is Emerald.

Emeralds have long been associated with loyalty, faithfulness and friendship – a stone which represents kindness and altruism. You’ll know emeralds as a rich, green coloured stone, which is actually how they were given their name. The word ‘Emerald’ comes from an old French word ‘esmeralde’, meaning ‘green gemstone’.

You can find jewellery to represent your birthstone by Thomas Sabo and Nomination.

Spring Charms from Pandora!

Exciting news!  The new Pandora charms have finally arrived – and they are gorgeous!

We’re particularly excited about the new glass beads, all made in pastel colours – perfect for Spring. They have even made another white murano glass bead with a silver centre – many of you have been asking for more white murano glass beads, so it’s bound to fly out of our shops before you know it!

I’ll be trying the new beads on my light brown leather bracelet, now that my silver bracelet is completely full!!
