THERE’S a new boutique in town – and a famous face behind it.
Tanya Bardo opened in Grove Street on Good Friday, April 14, and it is the latest venture by Real Housewives of Cheshire star Tanya Bardsley.
The shop is co-owned by model Tanya and Stephanie Ledigo, who told the Guardian that it is all about spreading positivity in Wilmslow.
“I’ve worked with Tanya for the past three years and she is a dream person to work with,” she said.
“The shop will be selling Tanyo’s own jewellery range – called ‘Dreams to Reality’ – which is based on her own life experiences that she wished and dreamt for.
“Each piece of jewellery in the range comes with a set of instructions on how to achieve your own goals.
“Tanyo is so positive, and we really want to be a positive influence.”
The store launched with the pair surrounded by their friends and family, before customers began arriving to check out its range.
It was a particularly special moment for Stephanie, with the store opening in her home town.
“It’s great that we’re going to be a part of the town centre,” Stephanie added.
“I’ve lived in Wilmslow my whole life and it’s really important to me that the boutique is here.”
To celebrate the opening of Tanya Bardo, an exclusive launch party was held at Adlingon Hall on Saturday, April 8.
Guests were treated to champagne, cupcakes and desserts, while the ‘enchanted garden’ featured prosecco, pizza and fire breathers.
Ella Brookbanks, who attended the event, said: “It was the most fabulous event – my friends and I had an incredible evening.
“Congratulations to Tanya and Stephanie.”
