Simply Be Doncaster Store Launch

Thank to the guys at Simply Be I was very kindly invited to the store launch of Simply Be's latest retail outlet in Doncaster. As I couldn't make the Liverpool launch I was so excited to attend this one, especially as it gave me a chance to catch up with my fellow blogging beauties and meet some new ones too!

*Warning*, its a bit picture heavy but, it really was a visual kind of night, so go with it!!

On the approach we we're greeted with the oh so familiar Simply Be logo in the not so familiar retail setting, the shop front itself is impressive I must say....



On entering the store the champagne was flowing and we we're treated to the full VIP treatment, swit swoo!!

The store itself is spacious and well laid out with exciting displays and a real fresh feeling about it. It was well signposted and funky..






And as for the changing rooms, you heard about the changing rooms right? along with the chalk board feature on the door where you're name is written a la movie star dressing room, there's the magic mirror; the magic mirror you ask? A fab gizmo where your picture is taken in your chosen outfit and you can have it printed out, or email it, tweet it or facebook it, clever huh?

So apart from playing dress up and guzzling fizzy champers what else did I get up to? Well somehow I found myself being asked to help with the cutting of the ribbon with the stores manager, Bridgette..... Oh the situations I get myself into!! By this point I'd had to scrape my hair back after frantic changing room japes and probably didn't look my best!!!!

  8. I went to the Bury store the other week, it was lovely and spacious and the changing rooms were fab. Staff were very friendly and nice and I bought a camisole and shrug. But the shop was empty, and I really hope that plus size ladies get out there and spend to keep them going!
