Vivaldi is a ladies fashion boutique based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Established in 2004 by fashion fan and self-confessed shopaholic Lesley Drummond, we sell an exclusive range of ladies clothing brands, including European labels such as Sandwich Clothing, B Young and Lavand alongside UK-based brands such as Capri and Lily & Me. We also stock a wide range of accessories to complement our clothing, including handbags from well-known labels such as Fossil and Fiorelli, an extensive range of silver and costume jewellery, and scarves in every colour and pattern! In 2010 we created our online store, allowing us to bring our fantastic range to customers across the UK and abroad.
We have a loyal and enthusiastic customer base across Scotland and love spending time with them helping to find that all-important outfit, accessory or gift. We love helping with styling - we're not so interested in fast fashion - we know our customers want to look good regardless of the current fashion trends. Our staff are both knowledgeable and friendly and take great pride in offering the finest level of personal service. We strive to bring that same level of service, and our stylish fashion collections, to our online customers.
We love the fact that we can offer our customers something a bit different to what’s found on the High Street, and we know that, along with our great service, it’s why our customers love shopping with us. We handpick styles every season to suit our customers, and buy in limited quantities to keep them exclusive - our customers know they’re not buying something that everyone will be wearing! We believe this is a good thing, but it just means you need to get in store or online quickly when a new collection arrives to make sure you get your size! Why not join our mailing list and be one of the first to know when our new styles arrive? Or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and Pinterest for our regular updates from the Vivaldi team.
Meet the Team!
Lesley is the owner of Vivaldi. With a genuine love of fashion, she is an expert when it comes to spotting new brands that will be perfect for our customers. She also loves giving style advice, and can often be found helping a customer to create the perfect look, or handing out style and trend advice at one of our regular local fashion shows and events. Nobody knows how to pack a capsule suitcase like Lesley!
Lesley’s style? Sandwich tops, tunics with skinny trousers, statement handbags – and basically anything in orange or lime!
Susan joined us in 2010 to help get our website up and running, and to keep it up-to-date and looking lovely! In between helping customers in the front of the shop, Susan can normally be found busily typing on the laptop, taking photographs of our gorgeous new stock, or sending out emails to our customer base. Although at the moment she is at home with her new baby boy Daniel she is supervising from afar and keeps the girls right when they make mistakes on the website sending them little email reminders!
Susan’s style? Skirts and tights, belted dresses, anything with polkadots.
Marie joined us in the spring of 2014 but for those of you who shop in the Morningside area of Edinburgh you will recognise her from a number of the other shops around! She may be new but she is very experienced - as well as offering brilliant customer service, she often creates our lovely window displays for us, showcasing our new products. She's also becoming a dab hand with the camera, and helps out Susan by taking photographs and Photoshopping (reluctantly!!) some of the new stock when it arrives.
Marie’s style? B Young or Sandwich tops and jackets, tailored trousers and brogues.
Jill is our local Morningside lady, who knows the area and our regular customers well. She’s an expert when it comes to creating our displays within the shop, so when a new collection arrives, or it’s time for a refresh, we normally leave it to her to create something fabulous. She works miracles when it comes to finding space for everything! And if you’re in on a Saturday, be prepared for some honest advice in the fitting room!
Jill’s style? Crisp white shirts, statement knits, Sandwich coats.
Christine is one of our longest-serving staff members. Always happy to give excellent advice to our customers, she will be pleased to take the time to help you find something special. And if you need advice on how to wear a scarf well, Christine is an expert!
Christine’s style? Slim-leg trousers, elegant knits and impeccable scarves!
Lorna is our newest team member. Covering for Susan she is becoming a dab-hand with the computer and is already keeping Lesley on her toes. With a vast amount of fashion retail experience from the High Street we know that she is enjoying being able to give that personal touch when it comes to style advice. It is much easier to offer in a local store where you get to know the customers on first name terms.
Lorna's style? Tailored Capri Pants with stylish knits, belted dresses with bolero cardigans and often a touch of yellow or ochre.
