Love Lana celebrates a fabulous milestone of being on the Market Place in Olney for 9 years this October. It's one of those wonderful shops where you go in to buy a present for someone and come out with something for yourself as well.
Sharon Cross owner of Love Lana (named after her daughter if you didn’t know) is a mine of information when it comes to fragrances. She started her career in House of Fraser on Oxford Street, managing the vast fragrance department.Today she chooses the fragrances she thinks we’ll love, from luxury brands such as Jimmy Choo, Van Cleef & Arpels, Narciso Rodriguez and Elie Saab for women and Dunhill, Mont Blanc and Issey Miyake for men.
Her passion for fragrances helps customers find their ‘signature scent’. She’s the opposite of pushy, sending customers away with samples and encouraging them to let the fragrances fully develop on the skin before purchasing. Sharon is available for one-to-one consultations if you book in a time with her.
Fragrances for the home are another love - diffusers, candles and oil lamps are a delightful section of the shop to browse. Right now, warming, cosy scents are popular as the darker nights draw in.
Jewellery is also a huge passion; the latest styles in costume jewellery from New York are updated each season. Statement necklaces, cocktail rings and earrings in the most fashionable metals and colours are always available and beautifully gift wrapped in pretty tissue, cellophane and ribbons. In fact, that goes for everything Love Lana sells and what’s more, the service is free!
Ponchos, wraps and scarves in luxury cashmere or easy-care fabrics are a particularly popular with customers looking to add a splash of colour to their outfits. Last but not least, the newest additions to Love Lana - greetings cards and absolutely gorgeous helium balloons in a wide range of foil styles and the latest bubble balloons which can stay inflated for weeks! So next time you’re looking for the perfect gift, beautifully wrapped with love, pop into Love Lana.
