Milly J Shoes is lucky enough to be a destination sight for many. With The Maids Head Hotel just up the road and one of our partners, many of their guests come to visit us.
We also have people come from seeing us online. With Manchester being no exception. After giving a WI Talk virtually, I was unexpectedly visited months later by two of its wonderful team. Alia of The Cheshire Federation and her friend spent a good amount of time chatting and ordering shoes!
This year the Cheshire branch celebrate 100 years of activity!

This year Milly J Shoes was on the cover of Bride Magazibe, The UK'S leading magazine publication that is an annual magazine.
With the age of Covid, Archant decided to amalgamate Norfolk and Suffolk into one magazine, which for wedding suppliers is a good move.
The Briarfields shoot was blessed by the last of the good weather with some of the area's top suppliers, including, Milly J Shoes.
The star of the shoot had to be Mr Jack Brock, the miniature pony however!

I tentatively approached Archant with an idea and this is what I came up with! A new series of videos featuring some of Norfolk’s best known personalities and entertainers is being launched to inform and entertain people in the county through lockdown and beyond.

During Covid-19, the EDP has been very loyal and supportive of local business. Of course, locality of the news is important to the newspaper.
I received the news of being a Drapers Footwear Awards finalist during the height of lockdown, and The EDP Newspaper were keen to publicise this news to their readership.
The link can be found below. Happy reading!

Lockdown has been challenging for many businesses. Navigating new ways of working and continuing to reach out to clients has been part of this.
However, lockdown is not necessarily the moment to have expected to receive good news. Milly J Shoes has been made a finalist for Footwear Designer of the Year in the very prestigious Drapers awards. With judges including Adidas CEOS, Clarks, Schuh and many more.

Last week and (possibly the last talk I will do for the forseeable future due to the current situation - Covid-19), I was invited to share my story and business journey at The Assembly Rooms in Norwich.
It was a bustling room full of professional ladies from law firms including Steeles, Howes Percival and financial planners such as Loveday and Partners, to The Style Show and Jarrolds. However, due to Covid-19, you could see the numbers were more subdued than normal.
However, after a fine lunch supplied by The Assembly House, I took to the stage to share with the room my unusual story. It went incredibly well and I look forward to giving more talks after this has all blown over.
Please stay safe. Please also see the, Your Dream Shoes to Wear page for our Covid-19 promise to you.

Just because as a brand you may have been going for several years, does not automatically suggest you'll receive a front cover! However, this year was Milly J Shoes' year for this surprise. I may be a bit biased, but it in fact, the focal point of the image - the shoes!
Bride Magazine is one of Archant's top publications and each magazine lasts for a whole year, so enough time for me to get used to the front cover.
Included in the magazine are also Milly J shoes dotted about. Thank you to Bride Magazine.
