The little Lofthouse Boutique has been open for just over 1 year and it’s been a steep learning curve to say the least! When I decided to open the shop I didn’t realise just how much I had to learn, about everything! Business, stock, IT, photography, writing, money to name but a few. The one thing I knew was what I wanted to be….or so I thought!
It turns out I didn’t! I knew I wanted to have a beautiful collection of equestrian and country goodies you can’t get elsewhere and to give a really amazing shopping experience. So once the shop was all decked out I set about filling it with all the things that I loved for the horse, the rider and the country lover. I wanted to stock it all! Every time someone asked for something I didn’t have I wanted to get it in. It’s just not possible to have everything, especially when I want the personal touch that the megastores just don’t have, so the country clothing got a bit neglected.
I never set out to become a tack shop. I didn’t want to stock things you could get anywhere else. I wanted to be that special little place that has different things! So, I had to really work out what I wanted the boutique to become.
Although I love riding horses, I always wanted the boutique to be for you, not your horse! Over the years I’ve really fallen in love with the country lifestyle, and fashion that goes with it. I adore brands like Sporting Hares, Hiho Silver, Grays Equestrian, Ness, Baleno and so many more. It’s not just the fact that they look amazing, they keep up with my life! I can wear them day in, day out and they’ll still look perfect!
So that’s what I’m going to bring you, the country brands that I love and trust.
Don’t worry, I’ll still have the equestrian essentials, you all know I can’t resist a beautiful bright numnah! But I want to be true to why I started this, for you to look and feel amazing. So whether you’re at the yard, walking in the country or on a posh day out, we’ll have the country inspired outfit for you.
There’s going to be a lot more coming over the next month, building up to a fun night of Cupcakes and Country Clothes (and prosecco) at The Lofthouse Boutique on the 28th September. If you love the country life as much as I do I know you’ll love what I’ve got coming up, and I’ve set up the Lofthouse Country Club Facebook group just for you guys. (You can join this HERE!)
I’m so excited I want to tell you everything now…but I can’t! So make sure you keep your eyes on our social media for more news (you can heck out our event at the end of September HERE), and I’ll see you soon.
