Sitting down to write the style report for this issue of IP Resident is quite poignant for me given that December 1st marks my one year anniversary as owner of Marianna’s and wow, time certainly has flown by.
When I bought Marianna seven years ago, my dream was to build the boutique into a leading light in Suffolk's fashion world. I wanted to create a destination that would become a firm favourite for so many woman. Never did I imagine that this year Marianna would be voted one of the top premium independent boutiques in the country by Drapers as we celebrated a decade of success.
The time is now right for me to hand over the reigns to a new owner. I am incredibly excited for Arabella Brown,...
Can it really be 10 years since we opened our doors at Marianna? It's been quite a journey and were thrilled when the local Ipswich newspaper, The Evening Star, shared our good news story earlier this month. Read all about our celebrations here.
We were absolutely thrilled to make it to the finals of the highly coveted Drapers independent Awards 2014 in the Premium Boutique category. On the 17th September, the Marianna contingent excitedly headed down to London to celebrate our achievement with the other Drapers finalists. It was an unforgettable day fuelled with champagne, fashion, fun and laughter!
We were thrilled when leading stylist and fashion blogger Beth Goodrham of the Style Guile wrote about her favourite pieces at Marianna recently. Beth is a firm believer that style and fashion should be accessible to all and her daily outfit posts show she knows rather a lot about looking fabulous.
Have a read here about which pieces Beth chose and why she loves independent boutiques like us.
