APRIL’S RURAL BUSINESS SHOUT OUT: 11 brands to support through Covid-19!

Welcome back if you’re returning & if this is your first time then a warm hello! This post is all about spreading positivity whilst supporting our favourite brands through these tough times. As a business owner myself, I know how scary the last few weeks have been and more so than ever, we do a little celebration dance when an order comes in!

I don’t know about you but retail therapy always makes me feel better, and with some extra time on my hands at the moment, I’m OBSESSED with browsing! However, with the uncertainty of the future, I’ve been cautious of how much I’m spending online, which is why I’ve put this budget-friendly guide together!

We must support our favourite brands, no matter how big or small so we can still enjoy all their lovely items after this pandemic is over. I’ve got you discount codes, put together style tips and picked out some Spring essentials in this post.
So, in no particular order…


Eton Taylor – Grace Knitted Dress (Cream)

What I love about this product… I’ve never come across a dress SO soft! This will make a beautiful summer evening dress, either dressed up or down. I paired it with a Fairfax & Favor belt around the waist and F&F tan Regina suede boots. I love getting to know who’s behind all these beautiful rural brands, Joanne is so positive and talented, with a wide variety of clothing and accessories to suit all age ranges.
How much? £60.00 (£48.00 using code EASTER20 at checkout, code expires end of April so be quick!)

Whale Of A Time Clothing – Atlantic Sweatshirt (White/Navy/Blue)

What I love about this product… There’s something about hand-packaged deliveries with great presentation that I really appreciate. This classic sweatshirt shows WOAT’s signature colour-blocking designs with the softest 100% organic cotton. I have 3 items from these guys and I wear them all the time, from the pub, to dog walks and the beach! They’re designed for a comfy, oversized fit which means they’re a great layer for the cooler British summer evenings.
How much?

Hyde & Hare – The Arundell Cowhide Clutch Bag

What I love about this product… Aside from the beautiful packaging which I didn’t want to ruin unwrapping, the bag inside was just as stunning. I really believe that a nice clutch bag can accessorise your outfit, and these unique cowhide bags can do just that. Every clutch is slightly different due to the British handcrafting that goes into making these products. You can select from 9 different coloured tassels to add to the zip, which if you’re like me, I love adding a pop of colour using them!
How much? £69.00 (you can get 10% off your first order!)

Ginger & Jardine – Long Sleeve Scoop Neck T-shirt (Pink/Blue)

What I love about this product… This ethical and sustainable brand use fabrics that do not drain our natural resources, such as bamboo (the world’s fastest growing plant). Their clothing is moisture wicking, absorbing 3 times more water than cotton and is perfect for allergy prone skin! If you’re like me and live in stripey tops, these are by far the softest ones I have come across which means they’re super flattering tucked in or out jeans.
How much?
£29.00 (or £24.65 if you use the code CHLOE15 at checkout, code valid until 31.05.20)

Teddy Edward Clothing – Ivy Skinny Lounge Pants (Navy)

What I love about this product… Other than the fact these guys are based just 10 minutes up the road from me in Nottinghamshire and I love supporting local businesses, their luxury loungewear collection is SO ideal for the current circumstances. It’s no surprise that comfort is trending right now, but sportswear isn’t just for the gym. I’ve been living in these lounge pants since lockdown as they’re soooo comfy! This distinctively British brand has both men & women covered from head to toe.
How much? £79.00

Pegasus Jewellery – Vitality Magnetic Bracelet (Raspberry Pink)

What I love about this product… I have to say, I was sceptical as to whether or not these work, but I am definitely noticing a difference in getting a better night’s sleep and waking up feeling more alive. With a lot of worry with everything going on in the world, I have been struggling to relax. These Silicon bands are a sleek and stylish design which come in various colours and sizes, meaning they’re comfy and practical to wear all the time.
