Mary's Living and Giving Shop to open in Parsons Green, Fulham

Mary Portas and Save the Children are proud to announce the opening of their fourth Mary's Living & Giving Shop supporting Save the Children. The lifestyle boutique in Parsons Green is set to open its doors on Sat 30 July, at 12pm.

The shop concept, designed by Mary's agency Yellow Door, is one based on the arts and culture. In addition to bargain designer clothing, jewellery, footwear and beauty products donated by brands such as Ashley Isham, Goat, MiH Jeans, Clements Ribeiro, Emma Cook, Margaret Howell, Monica Vinader, Hudson, and Australia Luxe Collective, shoppers will also see stunning collections of original artworks and limited edition books for sale. Signed copies of Rob Ryan's "You Can Still do alot With a Small Brain' and ‘This is for You’, as well as Amelia Gregory’s ‘Amelia’s Compendium of Fashion illustration’ will be on sale in the library room.

For those turning up on the opening day, there will be the chance to enter our 'luxury' raffle. Prizes include Sunday Brunch for two at the effortlessly glamorous Hotel Verta (located opposite Chelsea Harbour Pier); tickets for two to any 2011/2012 production at the Lyric Hammersmith (including Kneehigh’s Wild Bride), a bespoke personalised pop-art poster, a complimentary facial by celebrity facialist Sarah Chapman, Pilates classes at local studio, Absolute Pilates Plus and a REN Skincare giftset.

Mary Portas:

“I am so thrilled to be opening London’s hottest cultural hub! This is my fourth Living & Giving Shop, and it really is a fusion of fashion and culture. There will definitely be something for everyone. We’ve have a spectacular range of original artworks and thanks to such a generous literary community, we also have a fabulous selection of limited edition and signed books. It’s going to be a great place to meet, read, think, create and inspire”

Chris Coe said:

We continue to be thrilled by the fantastic response to our Mary’s Living & Giving Shops. We really want to encourage the community in Parsons Green to get involved as much as they can, be it volunteering in the shop or looking through their wardrobes or bookshelves to bring along any great donations. Every penny we make in our shops goes to the vital work that we do at Save the Children; saving children’s lives here in the UK and abroad”.

Expect to see book signings, readings by authors, children’s workshops and book clubs, at what is soon going to be known as South West London's hottest cultural hub!

Save the Children is appealing for donations and for local volunteers to work in the shop. To donate stock or to enquire about volunteering visit our website at or call 020 7012 6400 .
