Welcome to MySBoutique Uk! We're an Independent family run boutique based in Ashington, Northumberland.
My name is Shona, I founded the company in 2016. During a really difficult time for me & after a long period of ill health, I wasn't very mobile & was ordering everything online .... Unfortunately, I had so many bad experiences, mainly in relation to poor sizing, long delivery times & the quality of products .... I knew there must be a better way! So the search for our first collection began.
This in itself was an extremely frustrating process, my background is corporate sales/property, being launched into a world of being a fashion buyer was really scary at first, although it is something I have always had a keen interest in & been very passionate about & used building the company as a way to focus.
My aim was clear though, I wanted to use UK manufacturers & keep everything as local as possible including using web hosting based not far from us in Durham, and local suppliers for all our packaging etc
After months of searching for the best independent UK manufacturers we began trading in December 2016! The response was amazing, our clients loved the initial collection & within weeks we were not only shipping orders in the UK, but also to far flung destinations across the globe!
It became clear that our customers wanted occasion wear & accessories, but didn't want to pay £150 for a dress they would only wear once! That is why each piece in our collection is under £50.
My frustrations with online ordering also extended to the packaging! So much plastic, those horrible polybags then shoved into an awful grey mailing bag, didn't make you feel special at all! We want all our clients to feel special, and that they're receiving a little bit of luxury on a budget. All our parcels are carefully, picked, checked & tissue wrapped before they are dispatched to you. There's no hanging around either, every order received before 3pm weekdays is dispatched the same working day! Yay!
Since 2016, the company has grown from strength to strength, we are expanding our national & international operations, and in September 2019, after months of refurbishment we opened a new showroom in our hometown Ashington, Northumberland.
Over the years we have been very lucky to have been endorsed by international bloggers, featured in money saving articles such as Ashleigh Moneysaver x and also accumulated a HUGE following of over 60,000 on our Facebook page.
Keep your eyes peeled for new arrivals & new services being added, and enjoy the collection.
