Ladies Enjoy A Fabulous Night Out

Here’s a round up of all the goings on at our Girls’ Night Out event in Solihull!

Two weeks ago, 40 stylish Solihull ladies descended on Poplar Arcade in Touchwood for the bi-annual Girls’ Night Out event.

The evening began with a fashion show presenting the brand new Autumn/Winter collections available at fabulous by popular designers such as Lola Rose, Thomas Sabo and Pandora, as well as lesser known but super stylish British designers including Missoma and ChloBo. The fun yet chic show encompassed the key fashion stories for the new season. These included Glamazon, which incorporates bright colours and jewellery with semi-precious stones, and Winter Coats, exemplifying the on-trend styles such as fur coats and those in rich tones with chunky jewellery. As well as the catwalk show, fabulous collections owner, Jo Stroud, talked through this season’s hottest trends and the essential pieces that you shouldn’t be without for Autumn/Winter 2011.

Following the show, guests were invited to browse the collections in-store while enjoying delicious pink canapés prepared by Fenella de Minkwitz and her team at Gourmet Foods. Plus, a prize draw was held to benefit Cancer Research UK, and guests were given the chance to take home pieces kindly donated by some of fabulous’ top designers! The prizes included a Hot Rox bangle by Missoma, a pink wrap bracelet by Good Work(s) Make a Difference, a debut bracelet by Trollbeads and a Thomas Sabo necklace complete with carrier and charm.

Sinade Prosser, the store manager of fabulous in Solihull, was pleased with the success of the event and explained how “fabulous would like to thank our loyal customers for their support of our events. Girls’ Night Out is always a lot of fun and provides a great opportunity for jewellery fans to see what’s new for the forthcoming season, not only enjoying discounts during the evening, but also helping to raise money for an important cause.

The next fabulous event will be the Breast Cancer Awareness Event in association with Pandora on 27th October, during which 15% of Pandora sales will go to the charity. And don’t forget, fabulous can hold private shopping evenings, either in-store or at your home or venue.

Have You Got Your Tickets to the Next fabulous Event?

Come and help welcome in the new season with fabulous at one of two “Girls’ Night Out” events.

Next month fabulous will be holding its bi-annual Girls’ Night Out evening event at the Solihull and Bath stores on 14th and 16th September respectively. It will be the first Girls’ Night Out in Bath and will be held at The Cosy Club located above the fabulous store in SouthGate. Due to the success of the new venue used for the previous Girls’ Night Out in Solihull, it will again take place in Poplar Arcade, Touchwood outside the new larger store.

For those who haven’t attended one of these popular events by fabulous before, expect to see all the new collections from well-known, stylish designers as well as pieces from up and coming designers who are new to fabulous, all showcased in a fun yet chic fashion show. This September will see grown-up glam take over Girls’ Night Out with models wearing black evening dress to create drama and an elegant blank canvas to the allow the jewellery maximum impact. As well as the catwalk show, fabulous owner, Jo Stroud, talks through this season’s hottest trends and the key pieces that you shouldn’t be seen without for Autumn/Winter 2011.

This season’s shows will be a little different to before: instead of screens illustrating images from the London, Paris and New York fashion weeks, there will be mood boards reflecting the theme of each fabulous catwalk style situated around the catwalk. Guests will also be able to view the mood boards after the show, to add a fun, interactive element to the evening and let guests feel inspired by the images as they shop.

As always, there will be some designers and representatives from the amazing brands we stock, such as Chloe Moss, the founder of ChloBo, will be joining in the fun at Bath. There will also be offers available only to those attending  the evenings (to alleviate any guilty spending!), tasty canapés and drinks, and the popular raffle in aid of Cancer Research UK, which guarantees some lucky guests taking home stunning pieces by our favourite designers!

Tickets for the events can be purchased through the store where you’d like to attend the Girls’ Night Out – either in-store or over the phone. Tickets cost £5.00 each and while you will receive a receipt of payment immediately, tickets are sent via post nearer the day of the event. Children are welcome. The fashion show in Solihull will start at 7pm, and in Bath at 6.30pm.

We really hope to see you at one of the evenings… they are a lovely opportunity to get dressed up with your girlfriends and do what you love best – jewellery shopping with fabulous!

Getting fabulous at Girls’ Night Out Solihull!

We welcomed the new season in with style at Girls’ Night Out Solihull – Zoe Ralph of fabulous Solihull tells us all about it!

This year we held our bi-annual, sell-out Girl’s Night Out event, a seasonal fashion show, on 30th March, in Poplar Arcade, Touchwood. The event was extra special as, for the first time, it was held outside the fabulous store, and saw models saunter across the arcade wearing great new pieces for the Spring Summer 2011. The 40 guests in attendance enjoyed viewing pieces from the latest collections by Thomas Sabo, Lola Rose and Chan Luu.

The new venue was a great success and the proximity to the store allowed our guests to browse the summery jewellery in a relaxed and private environment while they enjoyed canapés and cocktails.

Thomas Sabo representative Daniel Rhodes brought along a colourful selection of the new POP NOW jewellery range, which is inspired by the 1960s vibrant pop art movement and fits in with this season’s trend for colour blocking and fun, vivid prints.

Girl’s Night Out wasn’t just an excuse for some frivolous fashion fun, but also raised money for Cancer Research UK by including a raffle, for which designers kindly donated some special pieces such as necklaces and t-shirts for lucky ticket holders to win.

Sinade Prosser, Solihull store manager, was delighted by the success of the event: “This Spring’s Girl’s Night Out was a wonderful evening and we were thrilled to have held it in Touchwood as it provided a great space for our fashion show and easy access for the ladies to browse in store, where they could choose from our full range of pieces. We are also very proud to have such generous customers and to have raised money for Cancer Research UK.”
