Spring is Here! April 19th 2016
Finally we have sunshine and spring is very definitely in the air.
The daffodils in my garden did not suffer at all from their early blooming and now the bluebell wood is in full colour and looks amazing. My little dachshund Daphne is addicted to the scent in my Bluebell garden and will madly run around for hours through the flowers.
This April French Sole launches their first Children's Collection of shoes, with all the "Mummy and Me" styles we have become famous for and also a completely new range featuring our signature styles, our Confetti Collection and for the first time Alice Naylor-Leyland joins us with a children's range featuring her designs from the Mrs. Alice Collection. We will be launching this in store at our Kings Road branch on Wednesday 27th April and it promises to be an exciting afternoon with lovely Alice hosting the event, great discounts on the children's shoes and treats galore which will include a "Braid Bar" - do come along if you have a little girl who would love our shoes as much as we all do.
Lovely Pippa Middleton continues to be photographed wearing our French Sole boots and without fail, they are sold out by the end of the day whenever her picture appears - she is such a great ambassador for British fashion and she is so loyal to all her old original brands, for which we at French Sole are very grateful.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrate 5 year of marriage on Friday 29th April hard to believe that the time has flown by so quickly. Our own wedding shoes collection - The Confetti Collection - are selling fast now as the spring/summer wedding season is upon us - my own personal favourite continues to be our best selling Love Heart shoe in a beautiful white "caviar" beaded textile on satin. I am also crazy about the white Moochers - a favourite for the bride during her walk to and from the church and also for the party afterwards!
The little shoes for the bridesmaids continue to also be a popular favourite for all the smartest weddings. My granddaughter Bee wore the best selling French Sole navy blue sparkling glitter bridesmaid's shoes when she was recently a bridesmaid!
Next to look forward to of course is for me, the best week of the year in London - when the Chelsea Flower Show comes to the Royal Hospital Gardens and this year we are offering some terrific discounts on our floral shoes in our Ellis Street store - so watch our social media for updates on this. I love flower show week, when Chelsea comes alive with all the vibrant scents and smells of the exotic planting all around the area and outside all the major retailers – Cartier’s being my all time favourite.
So enjoy the spring and I sincerely hope to see you all soon,
