The Conduit Magazine January 16 Edition 

A Happy New Year from us all at Melbury Gallery xx

Well, it’s out with the old and in with the new for another wonderful year here at Melbury Gallery, in fact we are now entering our 36th season and what makes this so, so special is the number of customers that have taken this amazing journey with us practically from the start. But whether you are new customer or a loyal devotee, Melbury will always be a magical place to find that perfect little something.

So, out with the old. Our Sale on clothing will commence immediately after Christmas, we will return from a well-deserved break and launch straight into sale mode. Amazing prizes on all your favourite designers such as, Oska, Sahara, Masai, Adini, Braintree, Nomads, Capri and many more besides – wonderful bargains for you to spend all your Christmas gift vouchers and money on.

Now, in with the new. For many a season you have asked for a trouser, a trouser cut in all the right places to allow for our English curves. A trouser with the right waist height both front and back, something stretchy, but not clingy, a pull on design with nothing to ‘dig in’ and a trouser that is made from good quality fabric which will have a ‘spanx’ effect where required. Tall order we thought, but then we found Laurie. Laurie is a clothing manufacturer from Denmark, their own tag lines are ‘it’s got to feel right’ and ‘try them if you dare’ … so we did, and to be honest you need to as well. We will be stocking a variety of colours over the Spring Summer season. Super fit, super comfortable, various lengths including a capri pant available in all sizes. You’ll be impressed.

The whole collection we were most impressed with for 2016 was Sahara. For the 2016 season we have increased our stock levels enough to be able to carry a full collection in both Sherborne and Dorchester shops. We fell in love with their bold colours, their amazingly exotic prints, the creative textured woven fabrics, all worked into their best-selling silhouettes.  Sahara will certainly be our go-to brand this season for beautifully inspired summer dressing.

A brand that we have focused on for the past two Autumn Winter seasons has been Lily and Me. We have been absolutely delighted by your response. The prints have been truly gorgeous and we have loved all the shapes and styles. Both seasons have been amazing. So, for Spring 2016 we will be launching our first very first dip into the lightweight cottons and jerseys from this family owned Cotswold based company. The collection is bright and fresh, with beautiful attention to detail and prints inspired by quintessential English seaside holidays. We can’t wait to see your reaction to this fabulous collection.

Colours for the Spring season are bold, vibrant and earthy… Midnight blues with Cherry Red, Terracotta’s mixed with a spearmint green, and Turquoise mixed with Tangerine… colours which remind us of the lazy hazy days ahead, as the nights start to draw out and our minds turn to booking early Spring breaks somewhere warm and sunny. These strong sassy colours are also starting to immerge in the Soft Furnishings collections. Our second floor in Sherborne has received a major make-over and we can now display all of the wonderful rugs, cushions, throws and lighting we have to inspire you and help you create your perfect homely haven. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to pop upstairs and see.
