EmmaWelcome to the Emma Plus Forum/Blog. It seems hard to believe that we have been going strong since January 2009! During this time we have been spreading the word about new developments, shop gossip, and our passion for the world of plus-size fashion. We post photographs, answer questions, try to solve problems, and provide useful information about special offers and exciting events.

For those who like stats... we have had well over 300 posts now, with over 50 generous testimonials from our customers (many of which we have collected on our 'Testimonials' page in the main part of the site). Because this Forum/Blog is unmoderated we also get attention from our 'friends' the spammers, with anything up to a staggering 1600 spam posts a day caught in our dastardly spam net – which usually makes quick work of them!

The Forum/Blog is split into separate pages for faster downloads. You can move through these pages by pressing the 'Prev' and 'Next' buttons at the foot of each one. In addition, we have provided quick access to posts on similar topics through the Topics Menu to the right. When making your post you will be invited to link it to one or more of these subjects.

The Forum/Blog's Search function (see just below) has been enhanced so that it now searches in the replies as well as the posts, and highlights the search terms in the results. If you know which post number you want, however, then simply type it into the 'Go to post number' function (below left)... and go straight there!

Contributing to the Forum/Blog couldn't be simpler. You don’t need to pre-register or be an existing customer, and your post will usually appear instantly. All we ask is that you include your name and email address with your contribution. We will only use your email address if we need to contact you off-line about your posting – it will not be displayed on the site, sold on or used in our general marketing.

We want this section of our site to be fun, informative and entertaining, and offer a breath of fresh air to women across the country who have an interest in plus-size fashion. We hope you will contribute with your views and questions, as well as letting us help you celebrate your significant fashion moments with your photographs and stories.

We look forward to hearing about what rocks your plus-size fashion world!

Subject: Lighting up Church Street

If any of our locally -based customers were passing by our shop either today or over the weekend, they may have a bit of a surprise by what is in our window.

A company specialising in transparent LED screens, SIS Digital, has lent us the use of one of their amazing screens at the moment.

It is a fantastic way to showcase a store, and I'm certain that it's the future of store display.

It looks beautiful by day, but after dark it looks quite magical. ....

Subject: Sale Continues

Our Sale continues from strength to strength, and we have reached the stage where all Sale stock is now at least 50% off, and certain items are 70% reduced.

As our regular customers know, we do like to clear all Winter stock before we have our full contingent of Summer season's clothing arrives, so we are now giving it away!

The Summer stock is now flooding in, so if you do pop in to take a look at the Sale, you may find that it will be well worth rifling through the gorgeous new looks.....

Subject: Our Photographic Studio

We had the best time at the weekend, transforming our store into a photographic studio in preparation for our new Shoptiques venture.

We will soon be putting photographs of our stock online through the fantastic Shoptiques.com website, where customers can browse exclusive designer clothes from fantastic boutiques all over the world.

We are delighted to have been invited to join their website, and are so excited to be able to offer our more distant customers the opportunity to buy online from us-something that has been denied to them in the past.

We will be inviting people to email us at emma.plus@yahoo.com to tell us of any clothes that they are particularly seeking, in order for us find it in stock, or obtain it and post it on Shoptiques for them to buy. An amazing system, and a useful service.

Subject: Anna Scholz on the Web

I am up to my neck in buying for Autumn/Winter 2016 at the moment. Having just returned from Belin, where I attended the Curvy is Sexy fashion show, I can report that the clothes that will be available from August onwards are going to be more gorgeous than ever.

That’s lovely, so why do I feel a frisson of sadness? It’s because I will not be buying Anna Scholz for the autumn, just as I did not buy it for the summer collection that is now being delivered into our store.

Why, you may ask, am I not going to stock one of the iconic plus-size collections, and one which I have been stocking every season since Anna started her line, back in 1994, and which I personally love? Well, for the time being, Anna Scholz is not going to be sold through boutiques like ours, and will instead be sold exclusively through her website annascholz.com.

Anna was the first plus-size designer to really understand that larger women needed to be seen as fashion-forward, sexy, intelligent and beautiful women, in a time when the phrase ‘fashion over the size of 16’ was considered to be a contradiction in terms. She is a plus-size icon, and her design creativity goes from strength to strength. I, for one, really hope that she produces collections that we can buy and stock in my shop again some time very soon.

In the meantime, we will, like everyone else, visit annascholz.com to get our fix of Anna’s patented variety of fabulous……

I would love to wish all our customers a lovely New Year!
We are particularly excited right now because we are beginning a new enterprise. We have been approached by a company called Shoptiques, which is an online selling platform,specially developed to sell boutique clothes from small companies like us.
So for readers of this blog who live too far away from us to call into the shop, please watch out for us on Shoptiques.com.
We will keep you posted. ....

Subject: Opening Hours

Just a quick reminder about our opening hours over the rest of the holiday period.

We will (as usual ) be closed on Sunday (27th December ), and Monday 28th, then we will be open for a continuation of our winter sale on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday .

Then we are closed on New Year's Day (Friday 1st January 2016), reopening at our usual times from the next day.

We look forward to seeing you in store -with the bargains available, it's well worth taking a sneaky peek in.....

We at Emma Plus would love to wish our fabulous customers the very merriest of Christmases, and a happy and prosperous New Year.

We look forward to seeing you in the store -we are open on Christmas Eve between 11am and 3pm, then we reopen for our usual hours on Tuesday 29th December, and trade normally until New Year's Day, when, as usual, we are closed. After that, we return to our usual trading hours.

Subject: Christmas Sale

Just a quick note to remind readers of this forum that we are now in Sale!

Usually, our Sales start immediately on the return from the Christmas holidays, but this year we are shaking things up a little, and offering our customers a chance to buy themselves something a little bit special at a wonderful price, just in time for the festive season.

It's a very good Sale -with many gorgeous things up to half price -so it's well worth finding a minute or two to take a look (and a cup of our excellent coffee!) between frenzied bouts of last -minute Christmas shopping!

Subject: Bake-Off Meets Cup Cake-Off

We had such fun on Friday and Saturday with our charity scoffing event. The picture shows me (on the left), Olivia (in the middle) and Kim on the right. The cakes featured were sticky toffee, trifle, banana, Victoria sandwich, black forest and chocolate rice crispie.

We're not yet able to give a figure for the collection, because it's all in our charity collection tin! We will keep you posted.


 Emma    Tuesday 15 December 2015 at 15:48

We've had the results back from the Cake-Off, and it was that we collected £175.10 for Climb.

We are so delighted, and would like to pass on our thanks to all who took part. We will be having another cake event in 2016.....
