Last weekend I was kindly invited by Intu Lakeside to come along and have a personal shopping experience in their re-vamped customer lounge. Obviously I jumped at the chance, what better than getting to shop with someone who will be able to pull clothes that will suit your body shape rather than fumbling around in the dark yourself!
After chatting with Carlene, it was apparent that she really connects with her customers and is more than a personal shopper to them. For some she is a rock of support when they are feeling down about their figure. Maybe they have been fruitlessly searching for the perfect outfit and have tried on more than one disaster that has lowered their self esteem. She offers advice on what will work for your body type and colouring and will hunt the shop floors for outfits to compliment you, so it really does take the hassle out of finding that great outfit. She is incredibly warm and friendly and great to talk to, it's like shopping with your best friend who won't brown nose and pretend you look great in everything.
The personal shopping service is completely free, and there's no limits on how many times you can use it. In fact they encourage repeat customers giving the stylists a chance to get to know your body shape and style so they will be a dab hand at picking amazing outfits for you. What ever your reason or occasion they will be able to help you find something perfect. The other bonus is you feel really spoilt by having someone to carry the clothes in and out of the changing rooms for you and help zip up dresses and run off and get different sizes. They are small luxuries that us mere mortals don't often get so it makes the experience even more worth while, it's a little taste of the celebrity lifestyle.
Each session starts off with a consultation in the customer lounge where Carlene will have a chat with you about what it is you're looking for and what you want to get out of the experience, from looking for the perfect party dress or a killer outfit for a job interview she has it covered. She doesn't work on commission either so there will be no pressure to buy any of the items she picks for you and definitely no hard sell. Just honest, unbiased advice.
If you would like to take advantage of this fabulous service give Carlene a call on 01708 684351 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would wholeheartedly recommend it. Have fun shopping x
