Our New Stockist in Dawlish

It is with great excitement, I have the pleasure of announcing our new stockist

Chic & Sassy Boutique Dawlish 

Please have a read about the owner Julie Lister, and her story of how Chic & Sassy was born....

Having worked in Event Management and Education, starting a boutique was a complete change of direction for the owner Julie. This involved a 250 mile move to the lovely seaside town of Dawlish from her home in Sheffield where she had spent the previous 28 years working and bringing up her family. With a love of fashion, styling, accessorising and colour and a need for a change in her life she threw herself in at the deep end and has not looked back since.

Chic and Sassy boutique came into being on 25th May 2019 initially stocking handbags and fashion accessories. Over the past year it has grown into a popular ladies fashion boutique in Dawlish that now stocks brands such as Joe Browns, Lola Blu, Zoom and Brave Soul. They also stock exclusive jewellery and made to order fascinators made by Julie’s sister Lyn. It has become known for its friendly welcome, honest styling advice, colourful and interesting window displays and listening to its customer’s needs.

Julie’s ethos is that fashion should be easy, fun, affordable and that clothes and accessories should enhance your life and not cause you grief. Stocking Sandy Shores Candles is part of her business plan to find locally made products and support local businesses. Plans for the future also involve holding ladies evenings with guest speakers talking about colour, dressing for your shape, stages of life etc.

With Great excitement Sandy Shores Candle Company are delighted  to announce our latest stockist:

The Hair Boutique, Beauty & Spa, 

Opening soon in Exeter

93-94 Fore Street 



Nikki Started the Business in January 2017 and hasn't looked back since. Nikki spent 7 days a week 12 hours a day at the Salon and slowly built the Members of the team up to create a welcoming cosy home from home atmosphere. Nikki has been a Spa Manager and managed many staff and even though they offer fantastic treatments the atmosphere was just not there so she knew she didn't want her Salon to be this way. After also running a successful 5 star Hotel for many years she has gained much Customer service skills so feels she knows what people want and aspect which is good old fashioned respect and honesty”

The Salon has grown from strength to strength in such a small period of time and the team soon felt they needed to spread their wings and moved to a larger premises in the Town of Cullompton which has enabled them to offer much more and grow the team, also making The Boutique the Top Rated Salon in the Town. But Nikki wasn't finished here.... After being in the Beauty Industry for over 20 years Nikki has now become an Educator and has opened a Beauty Training Academy Teaching all she knows to others and help them on a new or existing Career Path. “This has opened many doors for her also in her own career path and she is now an Ambassador for 4 well known Companies who approached her to work with their products and train her students in which is going fantastic”

Last year they made it to the Finals of the Muddy Stiletto awards and this year the Salon has been nominated for Top Rated Salon in the South West, Nikki’s Academy has also been nominated for an Award of Excellence and Nikki has been nominated for Entrepreneur of the year as well. The Awards have since taken place and pleased to announce they won all 3 Categories. Since this we also won Gold in Best Customer Experience.

Since 2020 has started Nikki has now made the decision to expand both businesses even further and is now relocating to Exeter which is her home town.  The Salon is going to be beautiful and still offering all the best Hair & Beauty Treatments and also the Award Winning Training Academy.

We would like to Wish Nikki and her team good luck in their new adventure.
