1. Your favourite brands come to you
“We used to have a store in Hitchin, but we quickly realised it was too far for many of our customers to travel,” Amber explained. “They want to try on clothes to see if the cut and style is flattering and right for them. Now we come to them so they can.”
p.s. i love you specialise in plus-size women’s clothing from sizes 16 to 32. The pop-up shop rotates between Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Warwickshire from March to July in the summer and from September to November in autumn.

2. Whether it’s for jeans, a t-shirt or a dress – shop somewhere that gets you
“We stock a steady stream of our shoppers’ favourite brands. We spend a lot of time with our customers and get to know what they want,” said Amber.
“Every season we fly out to Amsterdam and Berlin to hand-pick items for the shop. We spend a long time choosing the right style, shape and size because we know this is important to our customers.”
“We explore the latest collections and select clothes from fashionable brands so our customers can create an up-to-date and on-trend wardrobe.”
The pop-up shop allows them to get to know their customers well.
“We spend a lot of time with them when they come in. We chat, get to know their likes and dislikes so when we fly out to pick new skirts, blouses, knitwear and other items for the season I know what they’ll like and feel good in,” said Amber.
3. Good value for money
“Since we decided to switch to the pop-up shop full time, we’ve saved a lot of money as we’re no longer paying for a store. High business rates can make it hard for small businesses to survive, but since starting the pop-up we’ve been able to thrive,” said Amber.
p.s. i love you use local companies to help them set up their shop which includes changing rooms.
“We’ve made sure the pop-up space has everything our customers need for a great shopping experience. They have space and privacy to try on clothes and take all the time they need to find the perfect outfit,” Amber said.
