Churchill Square’s New Personal Shopping Service

Brighton up your wardrobe with Churchill Square’s new personal shopping service!

Published On August 3, 2015 | By We Love Brighton | Brighton Style, Homepage

We popped down to Churchill Square to try out their brand new personal shopping service created by the lovely Bethanie Lunn, stylist, writer and Mum.

Brighton’s no.1 shopping centre, Churchill Square, has seen an influx of brand new, exciting retailers including Topshop, Calzedonia, Boux Avenue and many more. You can discover these new style havens plus many more with the help of the centre’s newest resident style expert Bethanie Lunn, who can help you find your perfect new look, or just perfect your old one.

If your looking for a personal and friendly service with no hard sells then Bethanie is there for you. We got a taste of the service last week along with a couple of fashion bloggers so we could give you the low-down.

Churchill Square’s New Personal Shopping ServiceWe began with a sit down chat over a coffee where Bethanie asked us about our current styles and what we were looking for and then off we went to explore a range of wonderful shops. We were all very different sizes and had very different styles but she took on the challenge and did a great job of making us all feel comfortable and excited about our fashion possibilities as well as finding pieces to suit all of us. Bethanie is a fountain of fashion knowledge and taught us about the best types of clothing for our body types and the best colours for each of us as well as letting us in on some current and upcoming fashion trends. She also introduced us to a few of the newest shops and were all really impressed with the huge range of options on offer, as well as getting a whole new impression of this much visited shopping centre.

Bethanie is the perfect person to guide you through a shopping trip, her first book, The Modern Girl’s Guide to Fabulousness, was published in 2010 and was described by none other than Elle Macpherson as “a little black book of all things fabulous”. She now juggles being a mum and wife with a career as a stylist and writer, writing about how to be stylish in a hurry, shooting get-ready-quick beauty videos and even holding classes in how to (comfortably) walk in high heels! She also writes Churchill Square’s own blog which is packed full of great fashion picks as well as info about all of the centre’s brand new shops.

Bethanie herself says:

“I not only look forward to meeting new people and making them look and feel fabulous but also working with the stores in the Centre and introducing new customers to them.  There are so many new and exciting stores to choose from, it’s my dream job!”

Bethanie’s services really are for everyone and she’s created a range of options to suit all needs (and most importantly all budgets!) with prices starting from just £20. Packages range from a one hour session just for mums to complete wardrobe overhaul lasting a whole day.

Packages include:

Purse-Friendly Digital Do-over, £40

Duration: Varies person to person

If you’re in a rush with no time to shop or are on a budget, Bethanie can consult with you online about your needs and send you recommendations to suit, from across the Centre. A chat by phone, Facetime or Skype to discuss your concerns, needs and to establish your body shape will result in a ‘prescription’ of fashion and beauty buys sent straight to your inbox.

Mummy Me Time, £20 – £50

Duration: 1 hour (Individual: £50. Group: £20 per person, minimum 6 people.)

Being a mum can leave you time short, tired and in great need of some time to yourself. This one hour express class will inspire you to try new looks that suit you as an individual as well as teaching you some skin and cosmetic tricks to help you look and feel your best.

‘Style Me’ Shopping Experience, £60 – £250

Duration: 1 hour – £60, 2 hours – £95, full day (6 hours) – £250.

If you need impartial advice, are looking for an outfit for a special occasion, a capsule wardrobe for holiday, perhaps a job interview then this is for you. Having an expert on hand to guide you through what makes you look and feel your best works wonders! This experience can last 1, 2 or 6 hours and includes:

  • A personalised consultation by telephone and / or email to discuss your lifestyle, body type, budget and shopping goals
  • A day of shopping designed exclusively for you as per the time chosen
  • Offer VIP discounts at select boutiques
  • Education on how each item works for your individual shape, colour palette, lifestyle and style

If you feel stuck in a rut, or have items of clothing you never wear or worse, dread wearing then it’s time to give you and your wardrobe an overhaul! This experience will:

  • Discuss in-depth your closet and discuss what you wear or don’t wear and why
  • Assess items needed for your closet according to your true lifestyle and fit
  • Create new, stylish looks for you by utilising pieces you already have with new purchases made together
