It might be hard to believe with the bitterly cold weather we’ve been having, but winter is actually coming to an end! As we look forward to the bright and beautiful colour palettes that come with spring, now is the perfect time to stock up on your favourite brands and get your wardrobe ready for the new season. As always, our buyers have hunted down only the best for spring to add to our collections, and with the new season’s stock brightening the shop, you won’t be disappointed!
Following on in our series of celebrating individuality and style, our latest campaign “Make Your Mark” is all about having a wardrobe and style unique to you – creating stand-out looks suited to your lifestyle. We provide the quality brands; you can style them your way to express your individuality. Shop new in here.
Making a mark is an expression of who you are and what you feel and then having the confidence to express that through clothing. We have translated the idea of ‘mark-making’ into some eye-catching lines, patterns and textures, that you will see across our stores and social platforms and of course in our windows. Sneak-peak below:
Sonja and the rest of the display team have worked hard, as usual, to bring together the windows for this campaign, and as the curtain unveils you may notice some familiar faces.
We have teamed up with some local entrepreneurs who know exactly how to make a mark with their signature styles. We invited six local business owners who shop with us at Coes to model for us in clothes they would wear day-to-day. We love promoting and meeting local and independent businesses, and it was great to hear some of their stories and journeys and talk to them about how they are making their mark, not only in their style, but also in business circles.
