Dukes of Louth Ltd opened its doors yesterday with a special launch at its Queen Street premises.
Run by Julie Jennings and her mum, Maureen Mair, the name has a special connection for them.
Julie said: “The shop is named after my English bull terrier Duke who died so it is very special to us.”
Opening a boutique flower shop is a change of direction for Julie, who left her job as a NHS complaints manager to make use of the skills she acquired at Cambridge Flower School.
She said: “I thought life is too short and I wanted to get back into creativity. I’ve had a home and giftware shop before but I love flowers and this seemed perfect for mum and me.”
As well as offering the highest of quality of arrangements using the freshest of seasonal blooms, the shop has a touch of luxury with its chandelier and huge sunburst mirror. It boasts a wide collection of seasonal flowers to fill your home with wonderful natural blooms.
