The mission at Tilley & Grace is to make women feel as gorgeous on the outside as they are on the inside with a range of bright, colourful clothing and accessories at affordable prices. Because feeling good about yourself shouldn’t have to break the bank should it?
Founded by Sally Hicks back in 2012 with her late husband, Tilley & Grace was born from a desire to bring beautiful, leather handbags to the UK after living in Spain. First selling to friends at dinner parties, now selling to thousands of people both nationally and internationally.
A tiny pop-up shop in 2013, in the stunning seaside town of Aldeburgh, soon led onto five boutique stores across Suffolk and North Norfolk.
Affordable, colourful, welcoming, evocative are just some of the word’s customers use to describe their experience with the company. Empowering women to experiment with colour, to envelop their senses when shopping with them, is how they have built their customer base, their family.
Now 11 years on, they employ over 35 members of staff and continue to grow, and they can’t wait to continue sharing their journey with you.
Sally is a mother of four and has been selling her entire life. With one of the biggest smiles and most infectious laughs, and with the ability to make anyone in her company feel at ease and heard, this Essex girl has always oozed style and charm.
Sally has always been incredibly passionate about clothing. She was frustrated at not being able to find stylish, affordable pieces in her home County. So, after a lot of time and hard work sourcing the original products, she took the plunge and started selling at local retail shows and events, and she hasn’t looked back since.
Sally aims to inspire and nurture the women she is surrounded by. She has proved that you should never stop following your dreams, at any age and that anything is possible.
“Bringing colour and style into womens lives, in a lovely fresh, welcoming, environment is what I aim to achieve” – says owner Sally.
