We are loving being in the heart of the gifting season here at CW! There is much gift wrapping taking place for our online orders and we are loving helping customers in store. Below is my accessories edit. All great ideas for gifting be it for a godchild, a teacher, a friend or family. We are still getting all our orders out on the same day as receipt, via first class post, so there is plenty of time left to shop with us.
EXCITING NEWS! We have just had a big delivery of our best selling indigo two pocket jeans in the regular length! Now available from size 25 to new size 32, what a great gift these jeans would make! Perfect for any age, any season, any figure, any occasion, as demonstrated in the fabulous line-up below. You know how much you love them. Why not share the love?
I’ve been waiting to talk about Christmas shopping and now the time has come! Our beautiful shop window has been “cleverlywrapped” and we have re-designed the home page of our website so you can shop gift suggestions by price point. We are sending out all orders for FREE within 24 hours using First Class Royal Mail and our bespoke gift wrapping is also FREE. In short we are ready for you and looking forward to the festive season!
Today’s newsletter is all about this season’s collection of Louise Hendricks jewellery. I adore her pieces as they are a little bit different and so easy to wear. The collection also transcends well from day to night, so if you are like me and not keen on changing things the whole time it’s ideal. If you are starting to think about presents, all of the jewellery comes in a cute little pouch and can be gift wrapped in our CW jewellery boxes at no extra charge. Easy to post. Fabulous to receive!
I am currently at Spirit of Christmas (Kensington, Olympia) and am starting to feel more and more festive with every minute that passes! My stand features our best sellers, along with items that would make excellent gift ideas. You can view my top ten gift list further down the newsletter, along with photographs of the stand and a Spirit video too! If you’re visiting Spirit, I’m on stand J15 – be lovely to see you!
I’m excited to say that this week’s newsletter takes us right back to where Cleverly Wrapped started, with a showcase of designer scarves.
Time to focus on the men in our lives by dedicating a whole newsletter to them! Here is our very own Cleverly Wrapped Silver Fox model (real name Chris) showcasing our cashmere polo jumpers and our cashmere wool gilets. Chris is actually our Cleverly Wrapped photographer’s husband and a friend of mine too. Thank you Chris for doing this for me. You have done my husband out of a job!
I seem to be having an obsession with the colour palette of navy, orange and khaki at the moment so I thought I would share some outfits with you. I love adding a splash of orange to add colour and warmth and I love navy and khaki as base colours. If you want to see even more outfits along these lines take a look at my Instagram Story where I try on several different looks in the shop.
As I continue to seek new and exciting brands for CW, lockdown presented the perfect opportunity for me to put some quality time into researching a reliable and ethical supplier to produce Cleverly Wrapped’s own-label knitwear collection – something I’ve always wanted to do…
Time to jazz things up this week with some colourful, stylish and on-trend cashmere and cashmere-mix jumpers. They are all ideal for wearing now – with jeans or black trousers – and it’s a great time of year to keep a bit of colour near your face. All of this knitwear is from French cashmere brand Absolut which we have stocked for a long time. Not only is the quality superb but these are stand out pieces that will live on in your wardrobe for years to come.
Sometimes all we’re looking for is an easy and impactful addition to our wardrobes, a single item that will instantly lift a look to make it feel fresh and new. Below is an edit of six stunning scarves, that will do just that! Designed exclusively for CW and priced between £43 and £47 they won’t break the bank either.
As we progress ever further into September, it’s time to put away our summer wardrobes and commit to the season ahead. With temperature fluctuations expected at this time of year, strategic layering is the way to go. Lighter weight cardigans and sweaters that can easily be added over a classic cotton tee. I’ve therefore put together 7 key looks perfect for a number of different scenarios.
You must have noticed the trend for all things sleeveless! It’s such a good look for transitional dressing as it enables you to layer, which is the key to the current season. I love wearing mine with bare arms or over a pretty shirt but they are equally as good over dresses. Take a look and see what you think.
Welcome to September and transitional dressing. What better way to start than by thinking about updating your bottom half?! In this newsletter I choose my favourite styles and show you how they look both back and front.
There is a lot going on at CW this week! We have a two day photo shoot which means that next week the website will be updated with fabulous new imagery of our new collection. In the meantime I am excited to introduce you to our Nightwear Collection. Gorgeous hand block-printed, organic cotton pyjamas and robes that blend perfectly with our CW cashmere bed socks and our best selling v neck t-shirts. Ideal for lounging in or throw on an eye mask and have the best night’s sleep ever!
There are so many exciting new things to show you, I’m not sure where to begin! I have chosen to start with our current collection of autumnal shirts as they are great for transitional dressing and we have had a very positive reaction to them so far. I will be trying on all of the new items personally and posting stories of how they look on Instagram, so if you don’t follow me already it’s a really helpful way to see how things look in true life.
AGAPÉ JEWELLERY: I’m excited to introduce you to a new jewellery brand which has just landed in the shop and online. I was tipped off by a friend about this stylish, Parisian collection where everything is made from recycled gold, is fully sustainable and comes at a great price. I hope you agree the pieces are truly stunning, very wearable, great for gifting and ideal for layering with other pieces. Enjoy!
This week’s newsletter has gone completely floral! Seeking inspiration from summer gardens and the upcoming Hampton Court Flower Show creates the perfect opportunity to show you a selection of gorgeous, floral-themed pieces that will have you looking as fresh as a daisy and best in show. Enjoy!
It’s that time of year again where we need to have a think about gifting. There’s summer birthdays, hostess gifts, teacher’s presents and thank yous! This is my edit of this season’s gifts, all of which can arrive beautifully wrapped at no extra charge. Let us know if you would like a message included too.
Our men’s shirts by Pink House Mustique are always popular choices for Father’s Day and summer birthdays and this year’s collection does not disappoint. The cut is a standard UK mens fit so not too fitted and not too enormous, fitting true to size. Every shirt has been pre-washed too, so there is no risk of shrinking. They make fantastic presents and can come packaged, at no extra cost, in our beautiful bespoke packaging.
