Can someone please explain where this year has gone? Almost half way through 2013 and thankfully we’ve hardly had time to catch our breath! What’s even more amazing (apart from some glorious sunshine) is that this month sees our 3rd Birthday!
As well as celebrating our birthday (rude not too!) June is busy with lots of lovely other things that we have planned!
Nicola Anne Designer Day
We are delighted that our most local, very talented, designer Nicola Anne will be joining us on Saturday 22nd June along with her stunning new collection of wedding gowns for 2014 plus some favourites from previous collections.
We love having Nicola come into the shop as, not only is she a lovely lady who designs fabulous dresses, but she makes a great cup of tea and brings biscuits! As always these events are very popular and there are only very limited appointments now available.
Lou Lou Designer Day
Our second Designer Event is being held on Saturday 29th June when we will have in store an extended collection of bridal and bridesmaid dresses from Lou Lou. With their signature vintage and retro styling it is always exciting to see what new ideas this talented British team have come up with. Having seen some of their new collection at a recent trade show I don’t think we are going to be disappointed!
The Wedding Singer
One of the many firsts for us this year was being asked to sponsor a show – appropriately ‘The Wedding Singer’ – being staged by Leicester Amateur Operatic Society and we are thrilled to be associated with this talented group.
It’s been so exciting when we’ve been out & about and we see advertising for the production and our name appears (squeals of delight in Highcross Shopping Centre – not at all embarrassing!) The show is on at the Curve Theatre. Leicester from 25th to 29th June and we are really looking forward to going along to see the performance.
Beat it! Cancer!
On Sunday 30th June a ‘The Pink (Confetti) Ladies’ will be taking part in The Race for Life to raise much needed funds in the fight against cancer. This horrible disease affects so many either personally or their friends and family and we all have our own reasons for taking part. We are all training hard(!) as our husbands have agreed to greet us with a bottle (or two!) of champagne at the finishing line! We are hoping to raise as much as possible and donations can be made via our just giving page www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/pink-confetti
Happy Birthday to us!
It seems like the blink of an eye since we opened Pink Confetti on 18th June 2010 however reflecting on the last 3 years we are astounded by what we’ve achieved and amazed at all the wonderful people we have met.
It’s been a great twelve months as we received top stockists awards from 2 of our suppliers and also The Wedding Industry Awards shortlisted us as one of the top Regional Bridal Boutiques (1 of only 4) in the East Midlands! This award is extra special in that it was voted for by our brides and we were blown away by the feedback received through this process.
To celebrate or 3rd birthday we are asking all customers, old & new, to come and join us for a glass of pink fizz and birthday cake between 15th and 22nd June and as a thank you we are offering 10% off any purchase during our birthday week (a day just isn’t long enough!)
This is also a great time for us to start planning for our next twelve months and we have lots of exciting ideas! Plans are well underway for the relaunch of ‘Pink Confetti Parties’ with lots of lovely new handbags and fashion jewellery plus great benefits for hostesses.
From the autumn onwards we will start to receive our gorgeous new collections from all of our designers there are some amazing gowns and we can’t wait for them to arrive!
However because of this, we are planning our first ever ‘Sale Event’ at the shop to create some much needed space so there will be some real bargains to be had! The event is on from Thursday 4th to Saturday 6th July – more details to follow!
We have already booked our places at the NEC National Wedding Show in October and both UK Wedding Shows at Excel, London and their Midlands event at Ricoh Arena both of which are in January next year!
Looks like it’s going to be another busy year – Fantastic!!
