Newsletter No. 2 – The Christmas One
It may come as a shock to some, but Christmas is only 17 sleeps away, as long as you’re not following the Mayan Calendar that is, if you are, well, then Christmas probably isn’t going to be of major concern.
However, for those fretting about Present ideas, help is at hand, on Sunday 9th December, Dunmow High Street will be closed to cars for a Dickensian-themed Shopping Day.
Choirs, Carols, Market Stalls and a Hog Roast will be available between 11am and 3pm. Scarlett & Stone girls don’t need much of an excuse to show off so we’ll be open, primarily because we can’t think of a better excuse to dress up and parade our hidden talents as we sing-along to Oliver… no really.
While we sing, we wrap. All you have to do is choose, drink mulled wine and nibble on Christmassy fancies. Surely there can’t be a more pleasant way to shop.
And if you can’t make this Sunday, we’ll also be open every Sunday and Monday between 10am and 4pm from now until Christmas Eve to give you extra opportunities to find the perfect gift – although we can’t guarantee the Oom pah pah on those days.
Gift Vouchers are always a crowd pleaser and can be for an amount or specific treatment. They’re valid for 3 months and can also be redeemed in full or part payment for products.
For stocking filler suggestions, how about a boxed Jessica Polish starting at £9.75 or a St Tropez Prep and Maintain kit, just £6.00, or Guinot’s fabulous lip balm is £13.50.
However, our absolute favourite, for this year's must have stocking filler or Secret Santa at just £15, is the S&S Lucky Bag. A guaranteed minimum of 5 hair, make-up and/or skin care products worth at least £50 and JUST ONE LUCKY BAG contains a £100 treatment voucher. They are going like hot cakes so hurry!
We have ready-made gift sets for men and women, or we can create boxes for you. Price and skin care age ranges to suit all.
We’ll be open from 10-4pm between Christmas and New Year and will resume business as usual from Wednesday 2nd January.
We very much hope you’ll join us on Sunday, but for those we won’t see until January, we thank you for your continued support and recommendations, we are thrilled with how many new faces have visited in recent months. Wishing you a very merry, stress-free and peaceful Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year to one and all.
Finally, a sneak preview of what’s in store in January.
Coming soon, the Clarins Spring Collection. We are particularly excited about the anti-ageing lipsticks packed with collagen-boosting ingredients – don’t just take our word for it, check-out the British Beauty Blogger’s enthusiastic review below:
Right then, time to limber up the vocal chords and iron my Nancy dress…
