Well April has been a strange month; we've had the fabled sunshine and showers but in extreme ways - very hot weather preceded and followed by very wet weather. I wonder what the rest of the year will bring us?

We do know that it is time to bring out the summer wardrobe, if you haven't already done so. But perhaps it might be worth holding onto a few warmer clothes, just in case the weather springs more surprises on us.

This is always an exciting time when you discover beautiful clothes that you had forgotten you owned (can anyone beat a Gerry Weber top from at least seven years ago?). However, it can be frustrating too when you realise that some of your well loved separates are past their best.

Don't panic! You will find an amazing selection of summer tops, blouses, trousers and skirts in this season's hot colours in our shop. Pink, purple, green and blue are there, in pretty new shades and patterns which are sure to complement your statement pieces.

For instance...

 

 

...ERFO brightens up the rails

 

 

Known for their stylish blouses, shirts and tunic tops using modern shapes, a myriad of fabrics and the clever use of patterns and colour, ERFO are at the forefront of the fashion world. If you're fashion conscious then you really should take a close look at their collection.

This summer we have built the Victoria Lane collection using three of their brilliant new colour ways: All Purple, Pink Flash and Stylish Blue. There's a full description of the ranges in our blog.

What are you doing on Wednesday 15 May?

 

 

If you came along to our 'Pack a Suitcase' day earlier in the year then you will definitely want to join us for our 'Summer capsule wardrobe' event when we will be giving our new summer collections a full airing.

We'll show you how to choose your basic items, such as trousers, skirts and dresses and then how to pick the best coordinates from the exciting collection of tops, T-shirts, sweaters and jackets available this year.

Some of our top fashion designers will be featured, very often in a mix and match arrangement which might not have occurred to you before and with the wonderfully bright shades around this year we will be trying out new colour combinations which will stretch your imagination - and your wardrobe possibilities.

As usual, we expect demand for these two shows to be high so please don't miss out. Book today by calling the shop and reserving your seat.

Social Saturday

 

 

We've been promising you that we would organise another event especially for our social media followers, whether through Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, our website or newsletter. Well here's some advance notice.

Keep the afternoon of Saturday 13 July free - for all you tennis fans out there that's Ladies Final day. We're determined not to miss out on the match or the traditional strawberries and cream - and neither should you.

Come and join us in our Kings Road shop from 2pm and feel like you're in amongst the action, enjoying strawberries and cream and maybe even a cheeky glass of bubbly!If you can tear yourself away from the all that excitement you could also have a look at the beautiful summer clothes on our rails, where you may make some interesting and exciting discoveries.

We're calling it Social Saturday because this invitation is extended exclusively to our social media followers; the details of the day will only be publicised on our website, in the newsletter and through our social media accounts.

We'll tell you how you can get involved nearer the time. In the meantime just make sure you have Saturday 13 July in your diary as the day to visit Victoria Lane Fashions.

 

 

April fashion

 

 

We were delighted to welcome back so many of our regular customers for our final summer fashion shows in April. Both shows attracted a full house and received comments such as "this was an excellent show", "lovely to see real summer clothes" and "this was very different from how I thought it would be".

 

 

 

The shows featured separates and coordinates from some of our most popular designers in bright, summery colour ways which made us all feel we were on holiday. Many of the clothes were on show for the first time as they had only just arrived with us, the high summer collections which we now buy adding a new dimension to the selection on our rails.

As ever pinks, blues and greens proved popular but the newer colour of purple, in a wide spectrum of shades, captured many viewers imagination.

If you haven't been to one of our shows before, do think about joining us to see what's new, not just by your favourite designer but by other fashion houses you might not have considered before.

 


 

 

May Bank Holidays

 

 

Just a word of warning that we will be closed for two Mondays in May, in line with the bank holidays.

Monday 6 May and Monday 27 May are the designated dates.

We will, of course, be open every other day of the month, excluding Sundays and we look forward to seeing you on one or more of those days.
