The last time Joanna Lumley OBE visited our lovely store it was three months before we opened and our founder and MD Debs gave Fox Valley's VIP visitor a sneak preview of her vision for the store. The store was still a bit of a building site and opened three months later in September 2016.
Tomorrow (Wednesday 18th September) Joanna is coming back to Sandersons and we can't wait to show her our lovely store and the new Organics and Spa area she'll be launching. Debs will be in all our thoughts and we hope you'll all come down and join us for what will be a very special day for the Sandersons team and all our lovely customers. Our VIP visitor will be in store at 11am.
One of the things I hear a lot from clients is "oh I don't want to be mutton dressed as lamb". My slightly tongue-in-cheek response is usually something to the effect of "it's the patriarchy trying to keep us powerful older women down". My other response is this - think of these women - #helenmirren#joannalumley#annielennox#twiggy#lulu#prueleith#judidench . Do you think they're worried about being called mutton dressed as lamb? No! They're incredibly stylish older women who dress with confidence and chutzpah. Now take a leaf out of their book and move on!
Well, after sixteen days crossing the fantastic Central Asian countries of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, our September 'In the Footsteps of Joanna Lumley' tour, led by @antsbk , one of the producers of Joanna's series, has sadly come to an end.
We met eagle hunters, slept in snow-covered yurts, swam in mountain lakes, rode horses, met artists, watched fashion shows, trekked, played silly games, danced, drank fermented mare's milk, ate with nomads, marvelled at Silk Road architecture and even had an impromptu 'Tash Rabat's Got Talent' contest. Thank you to the excellent group who made it so much fun.
If you're interested in joining this trip next year, our June dates are already sold out and we have just a handful of spots left in the Autumn. Check out our website for more information.
Sleepy sunday, under a blanket on the sofa with a glas of wine and a great show on the tv. I'm watching "Joanna Lumleys Silk Road Adventure" and it is great. She is awesome. History and laughs all in one. (Vi i Sverige kan se det på kunskapskanalen eller UR play 🤓) #goodtimes#joannalumley#kunskapskanalen #urplay
We're delighted to reveal that we're working with Felicity Dahl and Sir Quentin Blake to bring the magic of #RoaldDahl to our hospital. Together we're planning to create a series of beautiful stained-glass windows in the entrance to our Waterfall House building. Sir Quentin has generously donated his original illustrations to the hospital and on Thursday night we were joined by the wonderful Felicity Dahl and her good friend, Joanna Lumley who, together with our very own CEO Sarah-Jane Marsh, unveiled the original artwork. Please visit our website to read more about this project or to donate and help make these gorgeous windows a reality. Link in Bio.
Little bitch troll from hell - this is me and alice’s sister tattoos. Something to represent our friendship and how close we are as sister. Something we both love separately and also together. Fun fact alice met joanna Lumley and cried 😂

You always have the best view in the room because you don't have to look at you.
