Made to Feel Like Stars
Well our Tillett's Christmas competition winners have been enjoying themselves in store.
One customer, Tasha Cockram enjoyed a personal shopping experience with owner Mel last weekend and was made to feel like part of the family, after entering the festive Advent competition.
Tasha, who visits the Cleethorpes store three times a week, and Louth once a week, said: “I love Tilletts. I’m so excited. I’ve made friends with all the team as I go in so often.”
The lucky winner spent the morning with Mel, owner of the women’s retail brand. Mel chose outfits for her that Tasha admitted she would never have chosen herself.
“Mel chose me clothes that were different to my own choice. But I really liked them. I was surprised as I never would have worn a peach coloured dress, but it looked great on” added Tasha.
Mel said she’d been looking forward to being a personal shopper as it was something she rarely got chance to do now the operation has grown.
“I was so looking forward to this. Tasha was lucky enough to win day 12 of the advent calendar, which was a shopping experience with myself.
“So many people entered the competition and Tasha was lucky to win. I’m pleased she loved what I chose for her.”
Tasha came away with bags of goodies and said she had thoroughly enjoyed the experience and had been made to feel like one of the family by all the staff.
And in the same weekend, we also welcomed Cheryl Meadwell, from Preston who entered the competition and won an all expenses paid trip to Cleethorpes.
Cheryl, who visited the Cleethorpes store once last November on her birthday in a flying visit, said: “I love Tilletts. It was my mum who introduced me to them and so I was thrilled when I won and could bring her with me.
"I got the text on Boxing Day and was so excited. I normally never win anything and to win this was unbelievable."
Her mum Maureen Dobson accompanied her daughter, which saw them stay at the Burlington Hotel and enjoy a sumptuous dinner at Relish, and also treated to a trip round the shop with Mel.
Cheryl added: “We had so much fun trying on all the clothes. My mum felt like a kid in a sweet shop. She loves to touch and feel the clothes.
“I love Tilletts as it’s clothing for real women, and the fact it’s a family run business shows as they really care about their customers.”
The winners enjoyed trying on clothes from the new Spring collection, which they all agreed was stunning and colourful.
"It was nice for mum to try on the clothes and meet everyone as she's not one for buying on line, but this has given her the confidence to call the order line now," added Cheryl.
Melanie Tillett, owner, said: “It was fabulous to meet them all and show off the resort and all we have to offer.
“We’re delighted that Tillett’s is bringing in people, especially out of season. We’re passionate about this area and love the fact our customers want to travel.
“We have customers who make detours on their holiday to come to the seaside. We’re reaching people far and wide through our Facebook Live and it’s fabulous.
"Cleethorpes has so much to offer with great restaurants and bars, and places to stay."
Before leaving Cheryl said she would be returning and her mum also planned to come back with her husband for a weekend break.
Tillett's and Cleethorpes look forward to welcoming them all back!
