A Corrie Encounter!

by Lucy Smith on April 14, 2011

This Tuesday our intrepid Buyer, Lucy and Digital Marketing Guru, Si boarded a heavily laden (with amazingly cool tees) motor and headed up to Manchester for the Lipsy retreat. A few long, diverted through country lanes miles later we arrived at the rather glam looking Great John Street Hotel. Right opposite the ITV Granada Studios, we could just about spot the red brick Chimneys of Coronation Street peeping through the gates and as we passed through the herd of paparazzi and into the main doors, we have to admit we felt a little bit like minor celebrities ourselves!

Upon arrival, we met the exuberant and gorgeous Katie, our PR agent extraordinaire who was ready and waiting with huge smiles to get our fabulous merchandise displayed for the occasion. The Lipsy retreat brings together a whole host of fab brands, giving us a chance to meet our celeb fans in the flesh! We had tons of fun and managed to get a few great pics of the day.
