Autumn Colours Are Nature's Jewels!

Hello Ladies!

I know, I know it's been too long! Like you all I've been busy over the summer with life and finding every excuse not to sit down and apply myself. And why not?! It's been much more fun to be out and about and engaging with you all!

But now Autumn is upon us and I'm feeling in a more reflective mood. Now I'm in the mood for snuggling. And judging by what you lovely ladies are purchasing from Therapy's Autumn collections, you are too.

   We've been selling lots of  soft and snuggly knits, velvet jeans from Amazing Woman in  every colour from on-trend orange to go-with-everything taupe. Toni Pons have done themselves proud once again and we have boots of all kinds from flat and furry to chic and wedge heeled - but all of them super comfortable - because we discerning women of a certain age demand comfort and style in all things!

Now what do you think of this yummy teddy bear coat? Isn't it fab?! I know you love it because I sold out of the first delivery. I've managed to get two more but I don't suppose they'll last long. Never fear though - I have some other delicious fake fur creations from Rino&Pelle so do pop in and take a look.   

And haven't we been lucky with the weather this year?! I think this is the most colourful Autumns we've had for a long time. I love layering up my clothes and swishing about with Bess in Petworth Park. Recently I've been taking my binoculars with me so that I can have a close up view of the magnificent stags and the glowing Autumn leaves - bliss.

Yes I'm counting my blessings and looking forward to getting my wear out of my yummy winter wardrobe over the coming months - perfect!

In store we have not only a shop full of gorgeous clothes but a full compliment of lovely staff headed up by our fully fit and newly promoted Ann Harper - congratulations Ann! We are joined by Yvonne Rowe who some of you may know from Jaeger. We're delighted to welcome Yvonne and her stylish ways into the Therapy family along with young Charley Jefford who is shaping up nicely in her role of Saturday Girl now that Dani is off studying law at Exeter University. Lovely!

So all in all we at Therapy have lots to celebrate and I hope you will all be joining in the celebrations with us this season.

We look forward to welcoming you into our bounteous emporium!

Oh I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!

A few weeks ago Chris treated Bess and me to a stay at Bailiffscourt Hotel at Climping. If you're not familiar with it then take a look at their website. It is a wonderful collection of old buildings set in beautiful grounds and only a few minutes walk from Climping beach. The staff are warm, the food is sublime and they are not just "dog friendly" they love dogs. 

The three of us spent many happy hours on the beach with Bess splashing in the sea. Back in April the weather was still "bracing" but despite this we still returned to the hotel uplifted and energised. (At which point Bess discovered the resident Peacock and spent the rest of our stay eagerly searching for it from our bedroom window - see above!)

And now we have had a glimpse of summer and our wee family has been back to the beach enjoying the ozone & the sparkling sea. A day out to the seaside is a special treat but at Therapy we are inspired by all things nautical! So even when you're tied to your desk you can carry the spirit of the seaside with you.
Since we had a burst of warm weather we've had a run on our fab Toni Pons espadrilles - help! Happily TP in Spain have come to our rescue and are sending out the missing sizes in our best-selling styles. They'll be arriving next week so don't leave it too long to stock up on your summer shoes. This is a new style for us & proving very popular - not too high, made from cool linen, designed to stay firmly on your feet and only £50!

NYDJ have once again excelled with their skinny ankle jeans in lots of colours (not skinny at all, just the perfect fit & length) and their linen/tencel mix stretch trousers which look amazingly flattering and are a nice antedote to the skinny silhouette.

And for proper "nautical" we have an abundance of stripes and fresh navy/white combos to keep you looking effortlessly chic. Add a pair of NYDJ linen trousers & your biggest sunglasses and channel Katherine Hepburn or Coco Chanel...ok, so I seem to end up more Popeye - but I think that's just me!

But that's enough for now - what am I doing on my computer when I could be outside in the sunshine dreaming of the sand between my toes?! 
Enjoy the sunshine ladies & we'll see you soon!

Calling All Easter Chicks!


Happy Easter to all you gorgeous chicks!

I've no doubt that you will all be running around after husbands and children, cooking, cleaning, entertaining guests and wondering just what is so relaxing about this "Bank Holiday Weekend"!

Well perhaps you can escape for a brief moment and join us at Therapy for a wee glass of Easter fizz, some illicit chocolate eggs and a therapeutic browse round our delicious Spring collections.

I know the weather forecast is looking fairly typical for a Bank Holiday weekend - i.e. rain - but we'll have the heating up, the soothing music on and will welcome you with a smile. 

I'm delighted to say that you are all loving our new shoes (see below if you haven't already been in to drool) and you're starting to think that Spring is on its way. So be kind to yourselves and sneak off for a little "you time" this Easter.

Therapy will be open on Good Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Easter Saturday from 10am to 5.30pm. We'll be closed on Easter Sunday and Monday because I'll be in my pjs, watching old movies with a G&T and a pile of chocolate eggs!

Wishing you all a very happy Easter and here's to sunshine and long days!

Laura xx

PS: just a few glimpses of our yummy collections to help tempt you in...

Spring Has Sprung At Therapy!

Oh it's been a joy to change Therapy over from it's drab winter wear to it's fresh and gorgeous Spring collections. And I am delighted to say that the weather has very kindly followed suit!
Today the sunshine is beaming down on Petworth from blue skies - perfect for showing off our yummy new clothes and oh so pretty shoes.
On Friday we received a whopping 250 pairs of espadrilles from Toni Pons:
What do you think?!
I've bought some new styles with the heel height that you all like, so hopefully these will prove popular.
I know, you can't imagine wanting to buy summer shoes yet, can you? But since Friday we've had customers pouncing on them - not wanting to miss out on their favourites and stocking up on new colours. Yum yum!


Ooh, that's a slightly strange photo - the contents of the window look like they're floating around! Still, I just wanted to give you a quick snap of our first Spring 2016 window.
I am over the moon to find green making an appearance again this year. it is so fresh & uplifting, and mixes so well with other colours.
The suede coat (£149) and the cute faux leather jacket (£89) are from a Dutch company - new to us this season. (I've just placed an order with them for the snuggliest fake fur gilets & jackets for winter). 
So I am going to post this before it becomes another  6 months since my last blog! I am feeling distinctly Spring-like and very positive about 2016. I hope you all are too.
