Voice’s Shop of the Month is Ruby Lou’s Boutique, which is a wonderful children’s clothing store – full fabulous outfits for boys and girls.

It is the brainchild of Lauren James who first started her business online, hand-making items for her two little girls.

“I posted the very first pair of socks I made on Facebook and the business has snow-balled from that moment on, as I was asked to make more items for family and friends,” Lauren told Voice.

“Selling from home and building my online presence (more than 8,000 followers on social media) has allowed me to open a shop of my own, where customers can pop in and browse, plus children can choose to have their photo taken on our flower wall in their chosen outfits, which we’ll post online for all to see!”

Ruby Lou’s Boutique specialises in traditional Spanish traditional children swear and offers a wide range of clothes and accessories for girls up to 10 years, and up to the age of 6 for boys, such as socks, shoes, bows, baby grows, rompers, dresses, two and three-piece outfit, shirts, shorts, braces and tights.

Brands include Patachou, Babidu, Chua, Babylis to name but a few as well as Emile et Rose, which is worn by the Royal Family.

Lauren is a firm believer in shopping local and also stocks items from Newport crafters and clothes makers as concessions within her boutique.

Apart from offering clothing for any event and celebration, you’ll also find clothing for special occasions too, with big brand names such as Sarah Louise that uses 100% silk within their christening pieces. As these specialist one-of-kind items have a higher price tag, Lauren offers payment plans to spread the cost, allowing anyone and everyone the chance to own the beautiful, hand crafted pieces.

Lauren is no stranger to shipping her clothing all across the UK via online sales, and also worldwide, but she also offers local delivery to Newport customers within the NP19 and NP20 postcodes.

So, if you’re looking to treat your children, grandchildren or great grandchildren, make sure you pop along to Ruby Lou Boutique, located on Chepstow Road. If you can’t get to the store, why not visit the website to see what clothes are available.
