From fabulous statement pieces to cool casuals, Yard offers gorgeous clothing from specially selected brands and beautiful accessories, gifts and styling for your home. Owner Vicki Fernyhough brings together hand-picked pieces from established fashion houses, niche labels and independent designers, creating a range that is stylish yet incredibly wearable. The shop has been open for just over three years and in 2012 was named Best New Business at the prestigious Drapers Fashion Awards.
Clothing Brands include Great Plains, French Connection, Twist & Tango, American Vintage and my personal favourite Maison Scotch. There are always new products being added, so each time you visit the store it looks fresh and unique. At the same time Yard has become known for bestsellers including Becksondergaard scarves, Nat & Nin handbags and Maison Scotch jeans which are always in stock. There is a fantastic range of gifts and jewellery and you can also treat yourself to some lovely bits and pieces for the home such as cushions, photo frames, pictures and candles. When I first stepped through the door, it was like everything had been hand picked for me, and I have heard many others say the same thing! You are always given a warm welcome and coffee is offered while you browse. The staff are really friendly and give excellent advice if you need it. It soon became a regular shopping destination for me, so much so that I befriended the owner and now work here occasionally, indulging my love of all things fashion related! I leave you with a couple of looks from Yard's new spring collection which has started coming in. And if you are looking for an outfit for something special this year or if you need something for a more informal occasion, this is the place to come!
