• Gale Force!

    Weather forecast for the weekend seems unseasonably bleak, with ominous forecasts of rain, swirly gales from the Atlantic, hitting the whole of the British Isles from West to East. Hard to imagine after last weekend's bout of sunshine, but the last few days have been chilly and wet.

    Great for the garden, but not so good for us-so this weekend, a topical offer for some rainwear, which we have in stock in our local warehouse and about to be sorted , labelled and reorganised for Autumn. Have you seen our newsletter-Peter has done an amazing job of illustrating the necessary wear for our green-about to be greener-and pleasant land.

    UP TO 30% OFF Rain City Chic- Offer only includes items on the Rain City Chic Page. Offer ends 13.05.14. If you missed out on this great offer then please sign up to our newsletter so you can be the first to know about the latest new arrivals, special events and promotions.

    Have you looked at our Resort Wear section, where we have linen dresses in gorgeous technicolor floribunda-do have a look for brighter days to follow, our longer dress went into our Chichester and Marlow shops last week (yes, i know, they have not been released to our other stores, but will be shortly) and sold out, so suggest you buy soon--just in case you aren't able to buy for that sunny spell forecast for the end of May. Where would we be without our Summer weather extremes, the perfect Summer outfit of dress with raincoat!

    chesca means gorgeous looks for curvy girls!

  • Royal Ascot

    Have you your ticket to Ascot?  Many of you have been  rushing into our stores for outfits--and our co-ordinating hatinators.  Our beige lace saucer shaped hat is amazing-goes with virtually any outfit, your favourite lace will look stunning in the sunshine.  Our ivory/black lace giant hat with bows at the side-see our home  page  where it is co-ordinated with our ivory and black lace figure skimming jersey dress-or add to  an orchid dress-and take all eyes off the races. have you seen our front cover vanilla  disc, with navy trim-llok out for this at that celebrity wedding, with our navy/vanilla dress and shrug.

    whitsun holidays? Bank holidays on the way-try our khaki dress, our linen tunic or mid-calf dress in ivory with large pink roses...tobacco rose is our name for this lovely story, a symphony in pink and neutrals.  Prefer our ivory and grey silky print for a tunic with ivory stretch jeans  for luncheon, or jeans for that walk in the park.

    Wedding this summer? our orchid pink chiffon dress ,embellished with tiny beads has just arrived.  On its own or with matching jacket-this is frivolous, frothy and feminine.  Pink will make the boys wink.  More about "Carnival" shortly-and look out for the cutest shift dress in all our carnival colours-this is the most elegant dress for Ascot ever--is n't this where we came in?

  • A whiter shade of pale

    Ivory , champagne and white are not just for bridal, as most of you know.

    Although we have a special bridal section, during my 10 years at the helm of chesca, I have learnt a lot about WHITE

    Fristly , graduation--In Dublin, they have walks for university degree ceremonies, where the girls where pastels and white!-so suitable for this special special ocassion

    Secondly, when a bishop is ordained, his wife wears white--perfectly understandable at this awesome ocassion

    Thirdly, interviews, a white shirt ensures you look crisp, clean, efficient and is a subtle insurance policy.

    Finally, holidays, a lovely golden tan is set to advantage with a stunning white dress or top and pants.  One of my regular customers always takes white outfits to wear in the evening, and i can understand why-the light as the sun sets, and everything co-ordinates.

    so ,next week's newsletter features -WHITE-perhaps you will enjoy a new departure

A pretty paper one with your purchase either in store or on line.  All our stores have a beautiful hat box with champagne and fancy chocs for one lucky customer. and on line,we are giving a little surprise for the lady who has the paper egg with the lucky number.

    what do we expect to see this week?  The clear turquoise waters off the Maldives have inspired our beautiful seersucker dress which flatters the figure-team with matching jacket for Ascot, and keep the dress for holidays-creasefree and mainly cotton, we love this material enough to buy it in several colours.  Dive down into the deep sea  and view the coral -pure silk separates introduce this year's combo of turq with coral.  Have you seen our cocoon pinafore chiffon dress in coral and beige with a little beige short sleeve goes under. Need a cardi, we have two--one shorter in coral with beige-or look out for our longer length cocoon cardi in soft stunning coral

    Look out for our brand new cream and ivory twinset, a stunning top with diagonal styling and a matching jacket with waist seam to celebrate your curves. I wear mine with natural linen trousers-and a golden tan (out of a bottle)  I shall be wearing the outfit next weekend--you'll no doubt recognise me.
