Supercool pop up sale shop alert
Oh glory be! So excited to tell you about this super fab pop up shop. If you love the designs in Courtyard in Guildford, you’ll be chuffed to hear about the sale pop up store, just a few doors down from the main shop in Angel Gate.
I came across Courtyard during the 2016 Muddy Stilettos Awards, and now I can’t make a trip to Guildford without calling in. They’re also a finalist in the 2016 Drapers Independents Awards. Courtyard stocks the kind of labels I like. Classic designers, not found here, there and everywhere. It’s stylish, funky and a little bit quirky, with designers like Marc Cain, Luisa Cerano, Nicole Farhi, Duffy, Velvet and Riani.
The are only few days left though, so you’ll have to be quick. There are bargains to be had peeps. Everything has been reduced by between 50 per cent and 80 per cent. It’s mostly stock from this summer and past seasons (including winter, so you’ll find some gorgeous cashmere). There are a range of sizes – but most of what’s left is for the average-sized woman – not the super skinny nor the super large. But there are also bags, shoes and scarves.
Check out this gorgeous mini leather bag by French label Tila March (below). It’s down from £305 to £125.
And this stunning Romy bucket suede in sable (below). I’m a bit of a bag lady, and if it had been my birthday instead of Mr Muddy’s on Friday, I’d have come away with both of these beauties! (The suede bucket is down from £350 to £150 – it’s actually kind of criminal that I left it behind!)
I tried on this gorgeous pink number (below) by Irish designer Roisin Linnane – and I know just the wedding to wear it to! I already have the perfect pair of shoes and a great clutch – now all I need is the hat!!
The pop up sale shop, and the main Courtyard, are tucked away down the cobbled street called Angel Gate, between the High Street and North Street. The main store is at number 5-6 and the pop up is on the same side of the street at number 13. If you snavel a bargain, don’t forget to let me know!
