It was an absolute delight to discover that an old favourite shop that we used to supply, is still very much in existence. Walking around towns in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, small independent outlets selling high quality clothing seem to be very few and far between. Like us, Ambers have celebrated being in business for over 50 years and continue to deliver the good old fashioned high level customer service that we love. We are very excited that they will now be stocking a collection of our things from February 2019.
It is many years since we first met and worked with the talented Carla Cameron whose character and style could never be imitated nor forgotten. Sadly she passed some years ago but her legacy lives on and the shop continues to thrive supported by a wonderful team who have themselves been with them for many years.
Carla and Alex’s son Alistair, keeps the spirit of the business very much alive having skillfully stepped into Carla’s role. He is an absolute delight to be around and it cannot be overemphasised just how thrilled I am to see that there are still outlets out there which share our ethos of loving our customers and wanting to do what they can to offer unrivalled customer service.
Ambers is not your usual high street shop being located in an old building that has been carefully converted from a fifteenth century mill. It is now an elegant salon perfect for a relaxed shopping experience whilst enjoying much of its original charm. There is not just women’s fashion but it also has a restaurant, hair salon, beauty department, children’s clothing and a tailor.
They have a wonderful selection of women’s wear – elegant day time classics to the grander formal gowns for black tie events. There will be a good selection of Charles and Patricia Lester in their Windsor Room including outfits for mother of bride and groom, special occasion and some evening pieces. Their fabulous team will also be happy to organise ordering anything special if you require something to be made in your own chosen colour, size or in a slightly different style.
Saturday 2nd March, we will be taking a larger collection to them for a special day for Mothers of Bride and Groom. If you would like to join us, please do let us know especially if you would like to try on particular pieces which we can arrange to be there for you.
