Robell Trousers – now online!

The Marie trouser by Robell is still our best selling trouser.  With many customers often buying the trousers in a few different colourways.


The trousers are a slim leg that sit on the waist and are probably the most comfortable trouser you will ever own!

We have now put most of the range on our website this includes:

  • Robell Marie Trouser – Regular Length
  • Robell Marie Trouser – Short Leg Length
  • Robell Bella Trouser – 7/8th leg length
  • Robell Marie Crop Trouser
  • Robell Shorts

We get regular deliveries from Robell – so if you don’t see your size simply drop us an email and we will do our best to get them in for you.

What happens at a Trade Show

Customers often ask about where we get our clothes from.  It is a mix – visiting trade shows for inspiration and finding new brands as well as internet searches and visiting other Independent Retailers!  Even customers come in with ideas – which is great.

We are always working one season ahead.  For example our stunning AW15 collection is arriving in the shop and yet we have almost completed our SS16 ordering.

I don’t do all the buying on my own and rely heavily on the input of the team.  Val (who used to work in the shop) often comes with me on buying trips and somehow manages to keep my feet on the ground.

Earlier this week I went to the Pure Trade Show at Olympia in London.
