"THE ULTIMATE BOUTIQUE" THE SUNDAY TIMES
FIND US IN SOUTHWOLD, ALDEBURGH & BURNHAM MARKET
  • The feeling here this week is of small indulgences, little earrings (making us feel dressed up) hairclips to keep us tamed, suncare for our skin and new pants (having thrown all the grotty ones away we realise we now have a need). With these in mind we have FREEPOSTAGE on all orders over £30, just enter it at the checkout #lockdown #lowdown #collenandclare #southwold #aldeburgh #burnhammarket all more than worth a visit when this is all over #coastalandchic
  • As it should be, a #strongwindow reflecting our #brandblending #itswhatwedo edit of all things spring and bright (yellow). Using our 'side' window to shake things up, our #heart is still glowing in the front window #collenandclare #coastalandchic #saveourhighstreet #shoponline #southwold #aldeburgh #burnhammarket
  • Introducing #brandblending by our very own @morgan.richards. A project she was passionate about before we all got #lockeddown and #furloughed. Each week we will show you what a good #independent store can bring to your wardrobe - a mix and mash-up of brands, price points, inspiration and style, it is why we exist and why we will exist in the future.

  • Who knew when we bought this @essentielantwerp t-shirt months ago how much it would resonate....... a best seller from our first #lockdown #lowdown email that we sent out this week, if you haven't already do sign up to receive our news before anyone else does, it is rather unhelpfully at the very bottom of our homepage (need to sort that out....another job for the long list) #collenandclare #coastalandchic #workingonit #staysafe
  • I ❤ our stores and whilst they are all closed for now may I ask that you take a look at our website, we are up and running with one heroic team member @lifeofgasking__ literally #onit, it will take longer than usual but this is us from here on and we would love your support #collenandclare #fightingtosurvive
  • The new life of a shop keeper .... Another day another monumental shift in the plans we made yesterday.
For now we have had to mothball our stores and online - I am more than hoping this is a very temporary situation and in a couple of weeks we will be back.
#collenandclare
#shutfornow #backsoon #fighting #survival #planning
  • What a difference a day makes, we were hoping for the best but feel that the only responsible action we can take is to close our stores whilst we fight this virus together.
We remain open online and as we adjust to new ways of working we would love any support you can give us over the next few weeks.
We have lots of ideas and some challenges to work through so please bear with us as we try to work out our phone systems (thinking nobody paid attention to the nice BT man when he installed it.....hmmmmm) , google opening hours, drop points for returns..... the list goes on and on but thank you for all the kind words. Thought this pic of our #coastalchicks worthy of a smile #collenandclare #coastalandchic #onwards
  • Honestly no words other than, in theory, the tagging products issue is fixed, so try it out, please shout if you cannot link to our website with this rather lovely image of a sunflower dress.... is online our lifeline ?... #collenandclare
#coastalandchic
  • Dystopian feel admittedly but today I was in our #burnhammarket store all day and the sun shone and I spoke to more suppliers, customers, staff and service providers than I have in a single day ever before ... the only way through this is together #collenandclare #coastalandchic #team #together
  • Yes there is #pink in the window but let's focus on the centre dolly and her #blue ensemble. This is the new #tulleskirt called Kine and for some tech reason, not fixed yet, I cannot tag products to our website, aaarrgghh. She is £52 and just one size that fits pretty much everyone and looks great with the Malkie shirtdress as a Spring move on from a big knit, both items #blackcolour as is pretty much everything in the window #instore and #onlineshopping #collenandclare #coastalandchic #southwold #aldeburgh #burnhammarket great styling @morgan.richards
  • Instant cheer. We are weekend ready in #southwold, #aldeburgh and #burnhammarket if you are headed to the #suffolkcoast or #northnorfolk #worthavisit #destinationshopping and #onlineshopping is looking just as good our #newin section is positively bursting..... #collenandclare #coastalandchic
  • @palonesofficial has been a new brand to #collenandclare this Spring and this Portobello faux fur coat at £200 with statement buttons has been stand out - Jess @quintonchadwick you rock it as does @oxleyswanskin just a couple left #instore and #online the fit is great #coastalandchic #destinationshopping #proudlyindependent great #customerservice
  • Yes this is an image from one of our brands and not one of our own but I am posting it because today was literally the first day that I didn't 'want' to wear black, it felt spring like and I wanted a #colourpop to wear to a lunch hosted by the amazing @db_dlondon bringing together some of the brilliant women in #suffolk, it was wonderful, fun and thank you.
So here's the confession, I did wear this dress..... the black version BUT with a neon yellow @essentielantwerp cardigan and coordinating neon hit @veja and I felt like quite the #newseason gal #collenandclare #internationalwomensday (+1) #coastalandchic #southwold #aldeburgh #burnhammarket #destinationshopping #proudlyindependent
  • A different view today and one I call the #shopkeepersview. I have spent a lot of time looking at #southwold #marketplace over the years and never tire of it and its resplendent @swansouthwold.
In #burnhammarket our view is of the wine emporium @satchellsofburnham, tempting very tempting and in #aldeburgh it is always light fittings in the antique shop that draw my eye, equally tempting #lovemyjob #greatviews.
From the outside in today our #strongwindow is all #smaxmara pieces for #greatwomen and @loggique on the beauty counter in its rightful place ps super for #handwash #collenandclare #lookinggood #worthavisit #destinationshopping #proudlyindependent
  • Well that's a wrap on our #popupshop and we have to say #halesworth you have been a blast, thank you for making us so welcome and Edward's Restaurant for feeding us too well #wewillbeback #emptyshelves thank you to one and all who came #collenandclare #secretsale #nextyear
  • Great model, great jumpsuit, great location, cute bag, lucky us @oxleyswanskin #americanvintage #southwold #hillandfriends #collenandclare #coastalandchic #aldeburgh #burnhammarket 📸 @stevehodgsonphoto styled @morgan.richards
  • A brief pause in the downpours leaving us with two options - the first is a dash to #halesworth to visit our #popupshop which we re-stocked last night after a crazy couple of bargain shopping days or wrap up in our favourite #newseason colour #pink and brave the beach. Photos from a super #hintofpink shoot we were thrilled to have @oxleyswanskin model for, styled by @morgan.richards and shot by @stevehodgsonphoto #dreamteam #collenandclare #coastalandchic #destinationshopping #aldeburgh #burnhammarket #proudlyindependent
  • Not our usual runway shot..... our #mothership store in #southwold is having a repaint..... as if we didn't have enough going on with a #popup store in #halesworth, finishing the buying for next #autumn and planning the biggest #fashionshow we have ever undertaken (more to come on this next week) but in for a penny in for a pound ....... I think it is looking amazing and cannot thank my team enough for smiling through the chaos and enthusing about it all..... hope you like what we have done #worthavisit #collenandclare #newseason #coastalandchic #proudlyindependent #destinationshopping #newshoes #veja #Aldeburgh #burnhammarket
  • For one week only - we have a new home in #halesworth. We will be using the brilliant space that is I-Chameleon in the Thoroughfare for a scaled down #secretsale.
The space is small so please don't all come at once but we are open 10am - 5pm from Thursday this week until next Wednesday (closed Sunday).
Crazy silly prices, new stock will be added daily #worthavisit #destinationshopping and 1 hour free parking #forwardthinking #town #collenandclare #secretsale
