About us

Our dedication to helping all our customers look their best has made us one of the most successful independent womenswear retailers in the UK.  Our personal approach and exquisite on-trend Collections are adored by the ladies of Billericay, Brentwood, Ingatestone, Stock and the surrounding towns & villages.  Visit us at our boutique anytime for a spot of relaxed retail therapy, or call our friendly team to arrange a private shopping appointment.

2014 was our 90th Anniversary year, and we have never felt more proud of our heritage. In 1924 a young seamstress (my great aunt Norah Shelley) took the brave decision to start up business on her own. So, she rented her families tiny front room at 79 High Street and began offering her services to the ladies of the town, alongside the retail of haberdashery, wools and fancy drapery.

Through nine wonderful decades of fashion subsequent generations have stayed true to Norah’s original values – Outstanding customer care, inspiring fashion, and a passionate dedication to helping women look and feel their very best.  We’ve won numerous awards and accolades over the decades, the most recent of which was being named a finalist in the Independent Women’s Wear Retailer category at the Drapers Industry Awards 2014.

Our boutique’s doors are open Monday -Saturday and our friendly team is always on hand with plenty of guidance & advice to help you find a personal look that compliments your shape, personality & lifestyle.

Whatever you choose to buy, we know that you will enjoy the N.Shelley experience as much as your new purchase.

P.S Our 90th Anniversary Week was 28th April – 3rd May, as well as a wonderful 90 Years of Fashion exhibition, we also held a 90th Tea Party and launched a £1,924 Fashion Giveaway competition.  Take a look at our Blog to read all about it!
