For clothes to fit you and the way you live your life...

Sally Longden – Owner

A bit about me!

My ongoing interest in sourcing fabulous brands and offering something a bit different means I have enjoyed working to develop Stick & Ribbon into the boutique offering we have today.

Our personal styling service and pop-up shop began back in 2009 and this has evolved into the award winning independent city centre boutique based in Bridlesmith Walk.

In my spare time, you'll probably find me running (I ran the London Marathon in 2016!), playing golf, watching sport, baking or just spending time with my family.

Following recent media appearances on Notts TV and BBC Radio Nottingham, I have been asked to comment on retail trends on BBC 5 Live and, more recently, made an appearance on BBC Breakfast's red sofa with Steph McGovern to discuss retail and the Budget.

What I love about Stick & Ribbon
Over the last few years, we have created a wonderful community of ladies who love what we do. I consider many of these to be friends which makes work life a pleasure. The best days are when we know we have made a difference to someone - either just by giving them some time and attention or finding them the perfect item which they absolutely love.

I also know I have a great team around me, we all have the same goal and work together as one. Thanks ladies! xx

What I love about Stick & Ribbon
Being a small boutique focused on providing the best personal customer service means we know our products inside out and our customers' preferences too! Working in a supportive, enthusiastic team is a great privilege and there is never a day where I don't look forward to being in the shop.

Mandy Bailey – Merchandiser

A bit about me!

I truly love what I do! For over 30 years, my involvement in styling and fashion have stood me in good stead to make people feel good about themselves and enjoy what they wear. As a 'fun-time' nannie, my time off is spent getting into mischief with my two precious grandsons, as well as making time for my lovely friends over a nice glass of wine.

I'm loving the Coco Cashmere for luxury pops of colour to lift the blacks and greys of our winter wardrobes. Oooh, and of course, Hale Bob! - love the patterns and bright colours

Audrey Hepburn for sheer time defying iconic style. Tilda Swinton for making androgynous dressing completely feminine.

What I love about Stick & Ribbon
I have been welcomed into this lovely team of ladies and been given the opportunity to do what I love to do best. Taking time to get to know our lovely customers, addressing their needs and selecting from a treasure trove of stock to find the perfect things. I can also be creative with our windows and displays, another passion of mine, without constraint.

It's a true pleasure to be involved with this lovely boutique.

A bit about me!

I'm the oldest Saturday girl in town! Although I have my own business, which I work at full-time, I also work in Stick & Ribbon on Saturday morning - because I love what Stick & Ribbon is all about and the bespoke, personal service we can offer our ladies!
