The Hat Box Millinery Lom­bard­stown Elaine White

The Corkman - - OPINION -

HE Hat Box is owned and run by Elaine White - only opened since May of this year, Elaine, mother of two, has fi­nally turned her life­time dream into a re­al­ity.

The Hat Box stu­dio is based on the Bal­ly­clough/Castle­mag­ner side of Lom­bard­stown, just off the main Mal­low to Kil­lar­ney road.

Elaine, a na­tive of Castle­mag­ner, stud­ied millinery at the Col­lege of De­sign and Tai­lor­ing in Mal­low.

While hire is the main side of the busi­ness, at The Hat Box you can also buy a head piece.

If a cus­tomer books an ap­point­ment with Elaine, she can call to The Hat Box stu­dio and Elaine will match the out­fit with a head­piece. You can also try on your out­fit in com­fort.

Elaine de­signs, cre­ates and sup­plies a vast range of head­pieces in var­i­ous styles and ex­quis­ite colours, that are im­me­di­ately eye-catch­ing at any oc­ca­sion.

At Lis­towel Races this year a hire piece from The Hat Box won first prize at The Lis­towel Arms Ho­tel. The lady who wore it won €500 - not a bad re­turn on in­vest­ment for €40 hire.

All the head­pieces are beau­ti­fully coloured pieces suit­able for any type of hat-wearer in­clud­ing small, medium and large hats, rang­ing from small pill­boxes to saucers. Whether you’re look­ing for some­thing stylish, so­phis­ti­cated or head turn­ing for the races, a wed­ding or a spe­cial day, Elaine aims to have the per­fect head­piece for you.
