5 Things You Probably Didn't Know About Molly Browns...

Posted On: 2017-06-27 15:45:09 ; Read: 4896 time(s)

While we're in the midst of a refresh of our 3 shop-fronts, new colours, new signs, new look, we thought we'd like to share a little about Molly Browns ourselves. You may be well aware of our gorgeous collections of ladieswear; from dazzling Sherri Hill prom dresses to breathtaking Allure Bridals wedding dresses, elegant John Charles occasion dresses to our striking Joseph Ribkoff range (new for 2017).  But what do you know about Molly Browns?

Here's 5 Things You Probably Didn't Know...

1. We're A Family-Run Business & Have Been In The Heart Of York For Almost 10 Years!

In 2008, we opened our first boutique on Low Petergate, York (now our Daywear and Accessories branch) and started out selling Gifts, Jewellery and what was then a very small selection of Evening Dresses. We've always taken great pleasure in creating eye-catching and interesting shop displays and we were so grateful for the fantastic response we received from ladies who shopped with us, and continue to shop with us today. The popular demand for the beautiful dresses and lovely items we brought to York from all over the world enabled us to open a second boutique at 27 Stonegate (now our Prom & Evening Dress branch) and continue to grow, bringing more and more stunning Designer brands and Ladies Fashion to York. In 2013 we introduced some incredible Mother Of The Bride and Groom outfits to our range and were able to house them along with our gorgeous selection of Wedding Dresses into our Wedding Boutique at 21a Stonegate in 2015!

2. We House One Of The Largest Collections Of Prom & Evening Dresses In The UK

The huge demand we discovered for Evening Dresses, and subsequently Prom Dresses, right at the beginning led us to continue to grow our collection to cover all shapes and sizes. Long Ball Gowns, embellished Two-Pieces, stylish Mermaid Dresses, Cocktail Dresses and Party Dresses, we now have something for every girl's taste! Over the years we have begun to stock stunning and desirable dresses from designers including Sherri HillJovaniLa FemmeMori Lee and Mac Duggal, more recently adding some of the elegant styles of Eleni Elias and the dazzling and elaborate prom stylings of Angel Forever. We've expanded from just a few to now hundreds of dresses available both in our York boutiques and via our online store. We pride ourselves on our extensive Prom Dress collection and our ability to complete any girl's look with the perfect shoes, bag and jewellery all under one roof and like to think we're the go-to place for your Prom Dress in Yorkshire, and even the UK!

3. Our Lovely & Dedicated Staff Love To Hear From You

At Molly Browns, we love to offer a truly personal shopping experience and so our knowledgeable shop staff are all on hand 7 days a week to act as your Personal Shopper! Naturally, if you've spent a little time with any of the ladies in any of our branches, you'll know how they use their own experience to help you discover your perfect look. Many of our team have been the Bride, the Mother Of The Bride or Groom or even a Prom Girl themselves and so they know how daunting it can be to find that perfect dress or outfit for your occasion. One of the true perks of our job though is when we hear back from our happy customers. Whether you send an email to let us know how amazing the Wedding was, send us some pictures of you looking beautiful at your Prom or even simply leave a review, it's always so rewarding to see and hear from our happy customers!

4. We Have Our Own Range That You Can't Get Anywhere Else

While you're shopping for designer dresses, top brand hats and fascinators and the latest stylish shoes, at Molly Browns we like to offer that little something extra special for you. That's why we introduced our Molly Browns collection, accessories, clothes and gifts you simply can't get anywhere else! Whether it's a gorgeous maxi dress or kaftan with print inspired by our travels around the world, a handmade and delicately embellished clutch bag or a striking sequinned silk scarf, we're certain you'll love our unique personal range as much as we do. There's so much more to see in-store than on our website too, so a visit while shopping in York is an absolute must!

5. We're Named After A Dog!

Contrary to popular belief, the name Molly Browns was not actually selected in memory of American philanthropist and Titanic-survivor Molly Brown (you may remember her as Kathy Bates in the film). We in fact decided to name ourselves after our much-loved little lhasa apso, Molly! She can be regualrly seen sporting glamorous pearl necklaces and feathered tiaras about the home. We're huge dog lovers here and we collect contributions for SOS Animals in each of our boutiques.
