THE LITTLE BUMP COMPANY, an exciting new boutique maternity and nursing specialist in the Montpellier Arcade, Cheltenham, held their media and V.I.P launch party on Tuesday 30th June before officially opening to the public today, Saturday 4th July.
Really sadly I couldn’t make it to the event but am told it was a fabulous evening and I will be wasting no time in popping into the shop when I am next in town and, when CotswoldCreate finally does get around to creating a baby then I know where I shall be headed to for all the gear!!
Owned by Eve Fernando, The Little Bump Company is a specialist boutique bringing ultra stylish and comfortable clothes to women throughout the Cotswolds during every trimester of their pregnancy.
Teaming up with Cheltenham Jazz Festival favourites, The Sugar Sisters, for the launch, guests nibbled on South Indian canapés by Bhoomi and sipped on Prosecco and mocktails from John Gordon’s, whilst being treated to the beautiful sounds of the three solo performers; Ruby Wood, Stac and Heather McClelland, who have been brought together as a group by a love of three part harmonies, ukulele and red lipstick!
“It was a real pleasure to welcome guests to the store, meet everyone and receive such wonderful compliments about our new venture. The evening was a great success and we are really looking forward to opening our doors to the public.”
V.I.P launch guests had the opportunity to browse all the beautiful products in the shop, ahead of the public opening, plus take away delicious cupcakes made by Cheltenham based The Vanilla Pod Bakery. Eve highlights her excitement to open her first store in the spa town of Cheltenham:
“It is a great location to open our first shop as it is a beautiful town and with easy links to London many young families move out here to create a new life. The fantastic schools and excellent activities around the area mean it is ranked one of the best places to raise a family in the UK.”
The team at The Little Bump Company also offer far more than just a clothes shop, she said:
“We will also offer advice and expertise about their journey into motherhood and a place where they can sit down and rest whilst finding out a little bit more about the mother and baby community in the area. That was just what I could have done with when I was pregnant and I want to provide that service for other ‘mums–to-be’ now.”
Eve and her team are also trained at antenatal and postnatal care and are happy to guide women through the features of the maternity clothing and accessories available, carefully helping to select the best wardrobe for each customer. Eve added:
“If you have recently had your little one, we can also assist with nursing wear, nursing lingerie, nursing scarves, changing bags, postnatal active wear and exercise programmes that look after you and your baby from day one.
“A local maternity store is essential, as a tailored approach to shopping can make the experience of being pregnant far more enjoyable and comfortable and something to be celebrated not endured. If there was ever a time in a woman’s life when she wants to feel beautiful, besides on her wedding day, then this is it and it is our drive to make them feel it.”
Guests to the shop today, Saturday (4th) can enjoy 10% off, plus sweet treats and goody bags filled with vouchers from other local businesses who The Little Bump Company have teamed up with in the Spa town.
I will be heading to The Little Bump Company soon, well, there’s no harm in looking is there?!!!
