No we’re not talking about a new cocktail for the festive season. Champagne & Lemonade is our fabulous fashion find, and we’re going to let you in on our secret! An online fashion boutique that specialises in selling pre-loved and unworn designer goods.
Sparkle this Christmas with Champagne & Lemonade
Founded in January 2012 by Isabelle Hartley-Nias, Champagne & Lemonade have every fashion item you could want; from dresses and skirts to trousers, handbags, shoes and sunglasses. From designers such as Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Chanel, Temperley London and Christian Dior. We couldn’t wait to have a little browse!
You can even sell your items to Champagne & Lemonade and they will take care of collection, dry cleaning, agreeing a price, photographing and merchandising for you so that you get the best price possible, and you get to keep 60% off the takings on your items! That’s how it all started when owner Isabelle realised she had over 70 designer items that she wanted to clear out of her wardrobe. When she couldn’t find a suitable outlet to do so, Champagne & Lemonade was born.
With Christmas Parties looming, drinks with friends and New Year’s Eve events, we thought we better start finding something to wear. Here are our favourites from Champagne & Lemonade.
- Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti, Sequin Grey Dress
- Issa, Fuchsia Long Silk Halter Dress
- Temperley London, Cream Mini Selena Dress
Under the Christmas Tree
We have our hearts set on a few pieces from Champagne & Lemonade to accessorise our day to night look and our lifestyle. We hope these are under the Christmas tree in a few weeks time.
- Juicy Couture, Black Hobo Bag
- Dolce & Gabbana, Berry Patent iPad Case
- Tom Binns, Mortal Angel Necklace
- Prada, Grey Suede Cutaway Sandals
Why Champagne & Lemonade?
The inspiration for the site’s name came from one of Isabelle’s friends who was known to say “She lives a champagne lifestyle on a lemonade budget.” It seemed the perfect brand name for a site of this nature – we all want to have the best in life and why shouldn’t we?
Top Tip – The site retails new pieces within the ‘Never Once Worn’ section – many of the items still have tags and boxes!!
