  • School's Out!

    This weekend begins the great annual exodus ,when people begin the annual exodus to foreign climes.  Chesca sold out of summer linens last year so we have refreshed our stocks, added a few others, and this weekend only added a few summer bargains for our regular customers.  Our pink linen jacket is only £75 this weekend, our deep pink bubble dress only £95

    Prefer blue, try our blue mesh floral dress-only £125 instead of £165.  Pack it and take it out, crease free

    How about forgetting your suitcase, and take an online bag with 9 items: pink capri pants, 2 dresses, a jacket, one of our "miraclesuit" swimsuits at  the miracle price of £80, a couple of T shirts, and a print cover-up and our stunning jewelled sandals for £35.  Easy packing ----------and not too expensive!

    Have a great holiday!

  • Sizzling Summer

    Whether a linen dress or tunic in a rose print, a capri trouser to match in cerise or capri blue, or a bubble cotton dress in raspberry, capri or navy-you can not do better than try one of our summer stunners.  

    Whether a day at Henley, a summer luncheon, a night in a hot theatre, and you want to look just right, chesca ticks all the boxes with these sizzling styles.

    This week, I served a lady in Chichester who bought our pink  rose print dress i, having bought the same dress with blue roses the week before, because she was so delighted with in.  In Marlow , a lady brought the pink dress in 70% cotton with elastane to join the blue one she bought the day before.  She says she loved the new quirky shapes .

    Another lady in Marlow, has a special dinner in Rome this autumn--she looked simply stunning in a monotone jersey shift dress  at only £95, which she and her husband fell in love with.

    I love the summer, the sunny mornings when you can just through on a dress--no need for layers-add  a pearl necklace or a long printed scarf, and I am dressed for the day and supper with my sons on the way home.  

    Don't like to buy online? Try our new  shop at 5 Market Street , Guildford to see all our summer stunners, or our unique wedding outfits-our reputation  for mother of the bride or groom is without parallel-whether our new dark lavender lace and chiffon or navy lace cornelli-and next week, our fab new satin back crepe and chiffon skirt, camisole and jacket--bias cut to flatter those curves and the perfect outfit for family pics!

    Be seeing you soon

  • Our Tip For The Day At Ascot

    What could be better day than a day  at the races  at Royal Ascot, a glass of bubbly and a dress from chesca
    It was wonderful to see chesca being worn by several stylish looking ladies on the day, and an even better surprise to see our Ivory & Fuschia Printed Linen Dress on TV.
