Classically Stylish Boutique
Tucked away in Pound Street, just off the Barthlomew street/Newtown road junction, is one of Newbury’s best kept secrets: The Clothes Shop – a classically stylish independent ladies boutique.
Owner Ann Howes, who runs the shop with her daughter Debra, was trained in Haute Couture – as was her fashion designer mother.
Ann opened the Clothes Shop in 1985 and many original customers – and their children and grandchildren - remain great advocates of the help and personal service they provide.
She adds because of my background I instantly know what will suit an individual’s shape and colouring and can recommend styles and colours they might not have tried before.
The clothes shop stocks items truly in season “when the weather is cold” says Ann “ We’ll have coats and knitwear for sale and Autumn/ Winter fashions won’t be on our shelves while customers want clothes for summer holiday’s. I also know my suppliers personally and trust the quality of their goods. I’ll only buy clothes that are properly made from good quality materials".
Over the year’s we realized ladies want an alternative option to the high street multiples, this growing need for individuality without the large price rag has required us to continually source exciting reliable labels for their complete wardrobe anything from casual through to special occasion wear including accessories and hats. We put down our success to the ability of retaining the loyalty of customers and the ability to attract new ones, long may we continue to do both.
