As one of the directors and co-owners of Elizabeth Rose, I am the sole buyer for the shop, dedicating a large amount of my time visiting showrooms, going to the seasonal fashion fairs in the UK and Europe.
During the week I am busy in the office or at meetings preparing and videoing the wonderful collections that arrive in the shop ready to go online. I work very closely with Charlotte enhancing our digital marketing, updating our online offer and organising events in the shop.
There is never a dull moment at Elizabeth Rose and it is in my DNA to work on the next event or contact my customers when I think there is a fabulous outfit perfect for them. Being on the shop floor is my absolute favourite, inspiring my team and getting a buzz from my customers trying on and finding their perfect outfit!
I also oversee the merchandising in the shop and work closely with the team. Making the clothes look appealing with style ideas and suggestions including handpicked accessories is all in a day’s work!
I have 3 gorgeous children, Rory, Tess and Charlotte and love spending time with them as well as my husband, Dan, and Reggie our cockapoo! It’s a busy life but super fun!
I have had the pleasure of running Elizabeth Rose jointly with my sister, Helen and my mother, Rosemarie for the past 23 years. The business was started by my mother in 1979 so we are now second generation retailers.
I was brought up in Kent, leaving to study for my degree in Manchester, and subsequently starting my career working in France/America for an international electronics company.
My main roles at Elizabeth Rose are; running all aspects of the financial side of the business, planning, projects and logistics are my main strengths as I like to get a job done!! I work closely with the team ensuring they are motivated, well trained and understand good customer service. Retail is always changing and we have to constantly adapt but we always ensure the customer is at the heart of what we do.
I am married to Rebecca, a qualified teacher and have three adult children (Harry, Alice & Isabelle) who are busy studying at University. In my spare time I enjoy running, cycling and recently scuba diving but most of all spending time with my family.
