The New Normal

When we closed our doors in mid-March little did any of us realise that it would be mid-June until we were able to climb the stairs and open the door again!   Our hearts go out to any of our community of Snappy Dressers who have been ill or who have lost loved ones.

Our rails are bursting with lovely summery clothes but PLEASE NOTE this summer we WILL NOT BE TAKING IN OCCASION WEAR.  When this situation changes we will let you know.

Please see our Where and When page for our new opening hours


In line with Government Policy The Snappy Dresser has closed it’s doors until further notice.


What a frightening time it is for everyone with Coronavirus sweeping the world.   We have decided to open BY APPOINTMENT only on a TUESDAY MORNING.

We have had a wonderful selection of clothes and accessories delivered to us should you want to visit!



This Saturday is that rare thing – an extra day in our calender – we are celebrating with a one morning only, all winter stock must go, sale.

Spring we hope is round the corner – ever the optimists – and our new spring stock is out on the rails with lovely lovely jackets, skirts, cashmere jerseys, and tops.    We have lots of suitable occasion wear and some great hats.

Come and see us soon!


February is a notoriously dismal month – but all the more reason for paying The Snappy Dresser a visit where you will be assured of a warm welcome and a treasure trove of treats.   We have reduced our sale rail prices again, and there are some standout bargains to be had.

Spring clothes arrive daily which is cheering us up and making us look forward to sunnier and warmer days.

Our mantra is THINK AHEAD.   Look at your wardrobes NOW – if you have lovely clothes, all clean and pressed, that you are not going to wear this year bring them to us SOON.




The Snappy Dresser is celebrating 6 years of trading with a massive WINTER CLEARANCE SALE.

We have some seriously good clothes at seriously low prices.  Now is the moment to bag yourself a bargain, as when it’s gone is gone for good.   Press refresh on your winter wardrobe with a new jacket or coat.  Lots of knitwear, jeans, wool trousers and skirts and “tops for wearing out to supper”.

We are also taking in spring clothes.


It can’t be – but it is!   Half term is upon us and Halloween is next week.   The Snappy Dresser has been exceptionally busy with wonderful new clothes, boots, hats and handbags coming in all the time.   We are particularly proud of our jackets and coats…..tweed, cashmere, waterproof, silk all in excellent condition and at a fraction of the price that you’d pay on the High Street.




Who knew there was such a thing?!   Started by Oxfam,  Second Hand September is now a thriving fixture in the fashion diary and just to think we’ve been doing it for years and not just in September!

The Snappy Dresser re-opens this week primped, prepped and ready to party!  We’ve taken in lots of lovely stock already – and know that there will be lots on its way.    As ever the early bird gets the pick of the cashmere jerseys and we look forward to seeing you all soon.


The Snappy Dresser is now closed for the summer.   We have really enjoyed seeing so many old friends and making new ones over the course of the last few months and continue to be delighted with the clothes and accessories that come through the door.   We have a small stock remaining – beach dresses and kaftans,  some great dresses that would work for a day at the races with hats to match or a summer or late summer wedding.   If you need us ring on 07973920525 and we will arrange an appointment.  Our doors re-open in early September for DROP OFF and from Tuesday 10th September we will be in full swing.  Happy Holidays to all our clients

Now is the moment to really bag yourself a bargain.    Our summer shutdown sale starts tomorrow Tuesday 16th July and we need to clear our rails to make way for lovely new stock in September when we will re-open for business after what we hope is a wonderful August for everyone.

If you are looking forward to Goodwood or a high summer wedding we still have some fantastic dresses, jackets and coats and hats galore.

If you are off on a gorgeous and well deserved holiday our beach kaftans and cover-ups are incredibly well priced.

We have good stock in all sizes 6-16
