08 Apr We just launched our new Boutique!
Read about our new Boutique launch!
It has been super busy and very exciting here at Colmers Hill, so I thought I would share the latest news with you all!
We recently moved to a beautiful new space and whilst we are still located at Symondsbury Estate’s Manor Yard, the change means we can accommodate more styles and brands whilst giving all our lovely customers the luxury of more space to shop.
I’ll go through what has changed and also talk about some of the exciting plans for the future. I’ve also included some kind words from recent shoppers who have commented on the new boutique!
Gorgeous as West Dorset undoubtedly is, one thing that’s lacking is a place to find stylish, current fashion. Until Colmers Hill Fashion came along. Almost impossible to leave empty handed. The new spacious, light filled surroundings demand even longer lingering! – Helen F, Hooke
‘I have always loved shopping at Colmers Hill Fashion and the new space shows off the clothes and accessories perfectly. It is a calm & relaxing with colour coordinated displays and feminine touches. The beautiful range of unique clothes means you can find everything you need for any occasion plus gifts for those special friends. Thank you Penny x – Lisa Eastwood, Founder of Lyme Bay Ladies
What are the biggest changes?
The biggest change is probably how light and airy the space now is. This gives it a modern and contemporary feel, which really helps bring out the individual personality of all the brands we stock. Since the space is a lot bigger, we can give the collections the space they deserve so that you can see our styles clearly.
It offers the Colmers Hill team the flexibility to put together wonderful displays, which make it exciting and easy to browse through different styles and looks.
“Colmers Hill is always my “go to” place when I want something that’s different! And I can always find it. Penny always makes me feel welcome and shopping there is fun!” – Jayne W, Taunton
What is my favourite thing about the new shop?
It is so much larger and lighter, and this airy feeling really contributes to the customer experience. There are now extra large changing rooms so people can feel more comfortable when they are trying on clothes. We’ve had loads of comments already from people, who say that the new boutique has a lovely feel and aesthetic to it, which is great to hear!
As a boutique shop, we’re all about offering the best possible service and experience to our customers. That’s how we set ourselves apart from bigger, high street shops.
“With a vibrant, fresh look, Colmers Hill Fashion Boutique has really excelled itself. The boutique looks amazing. There is a vast array of brands providing so much selection with inspiring collection piece displays that simply work. Penny and the team provide honest advice, making the shopping experience very personal and all about me!!! Just fabulous.” – Kwant G, Bridport
How important is the location of the shop?
We love being out at Symondsbury Manor Yard because it is such a beautiful rural setting in the heart of West Dorset, but within easy reach (a few minutes) of the A35. It has a refined and relaxed country feel which is perfect for a fashion boutique. We have customers who come and enjoy pampering sessions at The Shed Hair & Beauty Boutique or meet friends for a light lunch at Symondsbury Kitchen.
There is also the wonderful Home & Garden store, Bridport Cycles and Charles Chesshire Plants & Gardens. Lots of people also take a walk up our namesake, Colmers Hill, which forms part of Symondsbury Estate. There is a large free carpark for visitors to the Estate.
“I’ve given up on high street shopping much prefer small and friendly and that’s what we are blessed with here in the market town of Bridport, especially at Colmers Hill Fashion Boutique! Penny has recently moved her gorgeous shop to larger new premises on the Symondsbury Estate where you can be sure of a warm welcome. If you want an individual look for a special occasion or everyday, or that little black dress Penny has it! An array of stylish clothes to suit all ages and all pockets and she adds new stock regularly. I love the helpful staff who give you plenty of time to browse, and not just clothes there’s jewellery, bags, scarves, just perfect for gifts…and shoes too! With parking outside (5 mins from Bridport) and a coffee shop to hand.. pop in…and SHOP LOCAL.” – Pauline B, Chideock
Being a part of this community is really important for Colmers Hill Fashion Boutique, as it allows us to engage with other local businesses and be part of a flourishing rural community. It also helps us get involved with environmental and social projects, many of which are collaborations between the businesses and people that live in the area.
What other exciting things have we got planned for Colmers Hill Fashion?
We’ve been busy with the physical shop, but we’ve also been working hard to launch a new website as well. This will happen within the next few months, which will come paired with the introduction of some exciting new brands.
We’re planning on launching Marble and Beate Heymann later in the year, and we will be stocking Simclan from Germany, Isabel Giotto designer clothing from Italy plus Soruka and Gianni Conti handbags for the summer. We will also be adding a larger footwear offering to our collection with brands like Alpe, Inuovo, Cara and Refresh, some of which will be arriving this week.
At the end of April we are hosting some style and makeup masterclasses planned with Stylist, Lindsay Punch and makeup artist, Claire Bowring.
A few more upcoming events:
On Saturday, 18 May Symondsbury Manor Yard is hosting a Country Fair.
We are also running some End of Line Designer Clothing Sales as follows:
Manor Yard: 12/13 April
Lyme Regis: 10/11 May
