Celebrating 50 Years in Business

Yasmine of Bawtry

An iconic ladies designer boutique, in the South Yorkshire market town of Bawtry, celebrated an amazing fifty years of trading recently with two stunning fashion shows!

Yasmine of Bawtry opened its doors on 1st April 1974 by Annette Woolliams when she was just 18 years old. Now, after successfully trading through myriad fashion trends, a pandemic, and the advent of the ecommerce industry, Annette and her team are proud to still play a part in the lives of some of best dressed women in the region.

In celebration of this significant anniversary, the family run boutique hosted a 2 day event in the boutique located in Dower House Square, attended by over 150 of their loyal customers, who were treated to fizz & canapes and two spectacular fashion shows showcasing a selection of some of their favourite fashion brands including Carla Ruiz, Oui, Dolcezza, Frank Lyman Design and Joseph Ribkoff.

“I’m not sure where the fifty years have gone, but I know celebrating them with such amazing fashion shows and our wonderful clients and guests was simply amazing!” said Annette Woolliams, Owner, Yasmine of Bawtry. ““What an amazing time it has been, and having our business being such an integral part of our family life over the decades has been so special. It is a dream come true to work alongside my daughter Emma, formerly of Joseph Ribkoff, who joined me in the business 12 years ago and for my husband Andy to be such a familiar face in the shop too.”

Annette concluded; “We’ve always done things a little differently at Yasmine and I think this personal service combined with the superb clothing and accessories on offer has ultimately been the one thing that has transcended the decades.

“Thank you to everyone who has made out fiftieth birthday celebrations so special.”

A personal shopping service is a huge hit with clients and stylists have a wealth of experience to help find the perfect outfit for any occasion, or simply to update wardrobes with the latest seasonal look.

Annette and her team are also active members of Bawtry Retail Association which brings all the independent traders into Bawtry together so that they can achieve greater things as a team.

Joseph Ribkoff Autumn/Winter 2017 Launch

Here at Yasmine of Bawtry, we were lucky enough to have a team from Ribkoff in store to present our recent in-store fashion shows, bringing with them some new and exclusive styles to preview from the Joseph Ribkoff Autumn Winter 2017 Collection. All of the customers and staff in both of our shops had a delightful time at each show, first in Bawtry on the 12th of October and then in Epworth on the 19th.

The atmosphere at both shows was wonderful and the models included a professional from Ribkoff, along with some of our own customers who all looked great while showcasing the collection. While all of the outfits received an incredible reaction, this season’s military theme from Ribkoff proved especially popular. People also seemed to love the monochrome look reflected in both dresses and separates, which always looks stylish and classy.

At both shows, we held a raffle to win a Ribkoff voucher worth £200 which raised over £1000 for the Weston Park Cancer Charity. There were celebrations all round as not only did we manage to raise an amazing amount of money for a remarkable charity, but it’s also Ribkoff’s 60th Anniversary! In honour of the anniversary, we presented a collection of red dresses to coincide with all of their promotions.
