It’s been a quiet start to the year so far.  The decorations have been taken down and put away and now we enter that spell when we await delivery of our new season stock.  However, most of this is not likely to arrive until February/March – having said that I received an invoice ahead of delivery from Robell this week!  Who knows what will turn up – it’s always exciting to open up the boxes and see what’s arrived.  Whatever it is, however early it is, I will add them to the website and make them available for sale as soon as possible, as I know many of you are already asking and like to get in early to secure your size.  Hopefully you’ll be planning your holiday wardrobes and there will be more scope to get away to enjoy yourselves this year.
In the meantime, I will be gradually adding clothing items to the sale to clear any odds and ends so if you are in the area do drop in and take a look.  It’s the perfect time to find a bargain to put away ready for next year.  Of course these reductions will also be reflected on the website and delivery is free on orders over £50.
We have launched a sale of 20% off ALL footwear so this is not just limited to boots – however, did you see the gorgeous Caprice Lambskin boots from £160 to £128 – these boots are fully lined, really comfortable and cosy for those who suffer with cold feet!  They are on the website and we have sizes 37 to 41 (4 to 7.5) – bargain!  Not all footwear has been reduced online as this is only a temporary offer, so if you see any footwear you’d like to order via the website, I will honour the 20% discount if you call the shop and we will sort it out over the telephone – 01243 379966.
What a miserable few days weather we have had – frost, cold and rain, rain, rain!  Having said that, we haven’t had much rain this winter so far – married to a postman I am acutely aware of what the weather is doing!  On Saturday, he was soaked through to his pants!!  He has to try and remember that his post van seat will still be wet on Monday morning!
Sad news to read that more than 150,000 people have died from Covid in the UK since the pandemic began, so like a stuck record, remember, hands, face and space.  At Karen George we continue to do all that we can to retain a safe shopping environment and will be happy to make private appointments if you’d prefer to visit when the shop is empty.
Take care, look out for each other and be kind.
Sending you lots of love, good health and best wishes.
