    Styling with Green

    As you know, we’re fully endorsing Pantone’s ‘Greenery’ colour for 2017, even if we insist on calling the colour ‘Brazil’. In between giving customers five star treatment, our brilliant shop manager Janine Loynes gives our shop a shake up and move-around every week, and has been putting PLENTY of Brazil green in the mix.
