Kim Vine in Marlborough, Wiltshire

Chosen by Lissa Cook, founder of kidswear brand Peak Princess

Tucked away at the top of the high street in Marlborough, womenswear store Kim Vine is a haven of shopping calm. The open layout has ample space to browse and spacious changing rooms at the back.

Last time I was in Marlborough visiting my in-laws, I bought two gorgeous 1950s-style Renato Nucci cocktail dresses. My sister-in-law splurged on a bright red MaxMara number. Kim, the store’s owner, says the focus on colour is deliberate - everyone needs colour to brighten their day. An added bonus is that it only stocks one of every size, so there’s no danger of arriving at a party in the same dress as someone else.

The range is always expanding with new labels every season. Armani Jeans is popular but you can just as easily pick up a Nougat top for work or the weekend.

What’s most impressive is the customer service. Staff are welcoming but discreet; helpful but never pushy. As a result you feel free to just browse, but it’s very hard to resist the temptation to buy.
