LK Bennett Shopping Evening June 2009

On 2nd June we hosted a lovely LK Bennett shopping evening at their beautiful store in Covent Garden.  We seemed to have chosen the perfect moment as all our guests were keen to shop and many had summer weddings and events to buy outfits for.  The glass of bubbly provided by the store certainly helped everyone get in the mood and there was a great atmosphere and buzz and lots of helpful styling advice.  Our guests got a substantial discount on their purchases and the charity got a percentage as a donation at the end of the night. 

We have since held further events in LK Bennett stores up and down the country. Find out more here
