Verite Louise

Look And Feel Sensational With Stunning Lingerie crack

Psst! All you men out there, come a little closer. No don’t be shy, lean in so we can share a secret.

Thinking about buying lingerie for your lover? If you’ve not yet visited Verite Louise lingerie in the Montpellier Courtyard, now is the time!

Beautiful lingerie or luxurious nightwear are the perfect gifts and if you were foolish enough to forget Valentine’s Day... it’s never too late to surprise that
special someone!

Owner Verity Symcox is young, friendly and very approachable and wants to guide men away from ‘sleazy’ underwear to something subtle, perhaps in pastel shades or florals. “Roses and chocolates are lovely presents but lingerie is far more personal and lasts so much longer,” she said. “I encourage men to come in and choose things with their partners, but if it’s for a gift we are more than happy to guide them towards something suitable but one word of advice, know what size you need to buy first, don’t guess!”

Hailed as Young Business Person of the Year last summer by a Gloucestershire newspaper, Verity has been based at The Courtyard for over a year and also owns Knickerbox in Nailsworth, a shop previously owned by her mother who taught her the trade.

Opening her own store was the icing on the cake and the business is going from strength to strength with a website for internet sales on the way. Says Verity, “It’s all very positive and we are busy with new spring /summer collections which are selling really well, including top of the range swimwear such as Sea Folly; Huit and Gideon Oberson.”

The shop also stocks accessories for the beach to co-ordinate with the swimwear, from sarongs to beach dresses, skirts and hats.

Verity offers a full fitting service so her customers are assured of a perfect silhouette, and offers a wide range of styles and sizes to suit all tastes, from the pretty to the practical.

She said: “Old fashioned personal service is what keeps bringing customers back into the shop. The best selling item at the moment is a Chantelle bra costing £59 but we are by no means an expensive shop. We offer top quality that is made for comfort and to last and bras start from as little as £35.”

Verity aims to make women look and feel good and uses her former training as a beauty therapist and personal shopper, together with her own classic sense of style, to achieve this.

Other goodies to tempt the shopper include gorgeous cuddly socks and neck pillows and pretty thermals, suitable for any skiing trip!

Whether it’s for a gift; a treat for yourself or just to stock up on underwear essentials, pop into Verite Louise in The Courtyard or give them a call on to arrange a personal styling appointment.
