In every town there are little gems of places and we’re lucky enough in Reigate to have an abundance of them. One of them is Rock & Robes.
Rock & Robes is a small independent clothes shop with accessories and gifts for both men & women.
Rock & Robes stock a fantastic mixture of current season clothing & footwear with brands such as Tamaris, Cara, and Tokyo Laundry together with a growing selection of the Rock & Robes own label. What’s great is that there is also a small collection of pre-loved clothing ranging from Zara to Prada. These are all ‘as good as new’ and never more than 2 years old, which offers fabulous value for money with price tags around 70-90% less than their original price.
This eclectic selection provides a unique retail experience to suit everyone, mums, dads and teenagers alike and well worth that extra 2 minute walk from the center of town. This is a hidden gem in Reigate – something many of the local folk are missing out on and there aren’t many places in the area that cater the wardrobe requirements of different generations with an average price of £30. Bargain I’d say!
Also, Rock & Robes is apparently the only dress agency in the county that buys unwanted items up front. No waiting weeks or even months for payment, so if you’re looking to realise the value of what you’re not wearing in your wardrobe, that seems like a pretty good deal.
So, who is the founder and Director of Rock & Robes, Lisa Martin? Lisa originally trained in London and has been involved in Retail for over 20 years including Simpsons, Selfridges, Fortnums and Fenwicks and her experience shows. She is qualified Colour and Image Consultant and is always on hand for some free stylist advice. She also hosts fashion workshops, shopping evenings, charity events etc – all with a glass of wine in your hand! I’m all for that!
Lisa ran the International Mail Order Department for Monsoon way before the present day on-line shopping phenomenon was ever dreamed of. All of us enjoy the convenience of browsing on line in the comfort of our own homes whilst still in our PJ’s, but I would suggest that there is nothing beats the experience of walking out of a ‘real’ shop clutching your recent purchase having been served by a ‘real’ person. Take a stroll up Church Street soon – you won’t regret it!
But of course if you do happen to want to peruse their fab clothes whilst in your PJ’s…you can do that too www.rockandrobes.com
Happy shopping, #shoplocal and support your independents.
