A fashion boutique offering some of the hottest independent labels at affordable prices opened in Stone High Street on Saturday 16th February.
The Champagne was flowing at Rogue Boutique as owner Alex Bagnall opened her doors for the first time after relocating from Newcastle town centre. The boutique – at 23 High Street – promises women’s fashion that is affordable, always on trend and celebrity inspired. Brands include Hedonia, Lipsy, Little Mistress, Fever, Rare, Friday On My Mind, Jarlo, Marc B and more.
Alex said: “It’s fantastic to be open in Stone and we got such a great reception on Saturday!” All the best to Alex and Rogue Boutique and welcome to Stone!
There’s lots of other town centre news and developments.
- Just across the road from Rogue Boutique, Hammersley’s bakery has new owners and is now called Stone Baked. In a brilliant move, a range of breads are now being baked on the premises again!
- Meanwhile, it will be all change at the old Toddy Woodgate’s building in Granville Square in March. Bags Of Beautiful Gifts is moving to new premises round the corner in Radford Street and will be called Jolu Accessories Boutique. Jolu’s will offer a wide range of jewellery, handbags, cards and accessories, and some new products and gifts, but from the former Alison O’Mara florist training centre.
- Gallery On The Square, which was based inside Bags Of Beautiful Gifts, is moving to Lichfield Street in March to take on the former Shelter charity shop. It will have a new name – Abbey Framing Service – but will be offering the same picture framing, photo-to-canvas and picture restoration services.
- Tylman of Stone, which is currently upstairs, will be moving downstairs. Fleur’s tearoom will be open as usual.
- It’s sadder news further down Lichfield Street as the Traditional Flower Company will be leaving Stone at the end of February. They’re having a great closing down sale at the moment if you want to grab a bargain or two.
