THE CO-OWNER of a fash­ion bou­tique which opened ear­lier this year has lauded the peo­ple of Chal­font St Giles.

Carly Grif­fin, along with Ryan Sweales and Han­nah Fox, owns Lulu and Moon, an af­ford­able ladies’ clothes shop found on the High Street.

Open­ing at the end of May the shop has been go­ing ‘bet­ter than we ever imag­ined’, ac­cord­ing to Carly.

She added: “Ev­ery­one in the vil­lage has been so sup­port­ive and we have cus­tomers com­ing over from Tring, High Wy­combe, Den­ham and Norholt.

“We are over the moon with how it’s been go­ing.”

Carly knows the vil­lage well hav­ing grown up in it, and says of the team that ev­ery­one ‘knows us and sup­ports what we are do­ing’.

She added: “Work­ing in Chal­font St Giles is great.

“Ryan and my­self own Lit­tle Re­treat, the beauty sa­lon on the high street, so Lulu and Moon was cre­ated with our clients from the sa­lon in mind.

“We have a wide age range of of clients at Lit­tle Re­treat and there was nowhere in the vil­lage for af­ford­able fash­ion so we thought we would go for it.”

Carly, who said she is ‘so proud of her vil­lage’, added: “We are re­ally en­joy­ing the shop.

“Han­nah and I do all the buy­ing which is re­ally fun, it’s the best bit choos­ing clothes for the ladies of St Giles.

“Han­nah used to work at the Top­shop flag­ship store as a vis­ual mer­chan­diser, so she is a pro.

“We get things in only a cou­ple of times so once it’s gone it’s gone.

“We don’t want the whole vil­lage wear­ing the same out­fit.

“And Ryan is in charge of how much we can spend.”

It is bet­ter than we ever imag­ined
