Cowbridge is not only known for its fantastic eateries, but it also has an unenviable reputation for great boutiques. One such boutique is Tallia. We caught up with owner Sue Jones to find out why she’s loving the new seasons drop.
Your reputation is certainly building Sue?
I’m so grateful that my customers are liking what I’m offering. I’m particularly excited about our spring/summer collections after a busy buying few months.
Tell us why?
As well as our existing, much-loved brands of Javier Simorra, James Lakeland, Tivoli and Femme; everyday basics of Kaffe, Liverpool jeans, Luella knitwear and Jorli knitwear and, for special occasions, Tia and Apanage. I really look forward to stocking the shelves this time of year. There is such a variety of fabrics from cool cottons to soft silks in beautiful vibrant colours. There are styles for everyone from tailored to comfortable loose-fitting garments to suit any occasion. There will also be some lovely new brands which I’m really excited to showcase.
What about accessories?
Our accessories, such as jewellery from Isles & Stars and Zelly and handbags from Zohara and Punch are very popular and really make any outfit complete.
Who are your customers?
I cater for ages 25 upwards with sizes ranging from 8 to 22.
What do you think makes Tallia special?
My customers say that we are friendly and helpful and not at all pushy – there’s nothing worse! I always try and offer something a little bit different and don’t order too many of the same item – again nothing worse than seeing your outfit on another woman! Most of all, I think it’s our honest feedback that women appreciate.
