A hidden GEM in Southport…

S’up buttercups (hey lovelies is starting to sound a bit drab…)

If you’re from Liverpool (or are lucky enough to have visited, or have relatives here) then you will have heard of Southport, a little seaside town which is just a train ride away from Liverpool City Centre. I’ll admit that it’s not somewhere I visit very often- I frequented it more when I was little- because these days it’s a bit quieter and there’s less of the hustle and bustle that I love.

However, Southport is hiding a little gem and I went undercover (jokes, I was invited) to find out all about Beales, a small department store on Lord Street which is housing some of the best beauty and fashion brands.

A couple of weeks ago they hosted a fashion show evening for their local customers (which is an excellent idea, other department stores take note) to show off some of the Autumn/ Winter styles from brands such as Coast, Phase 8 and Moda in Pelle to name a few. Each brand showed off a more casual look and a dressy look, and the guests were also treated to a three course meal in the restaurant and a makeup demonstration.

Between some of the fabulous fashion and makeup available, this department is definitely the shining star in Southport. There’s also a gorgeous homeware department (couldn’t resist having a nosey, especially at their Christmas goodies) and a toys section for those of you with kids!

I highly recommend popping in if you’re visiting Southport, and if you’re living in Southport and not shopping here- girl what are you doing?!


Thanks so much for reading
