About Renes

WELCOME TO RENES FASHION

Renes was established in 1955 when England was still bearing scars from a world war, Churchill was still in office and housewives queued on chilly pavements with their ration books in hand. Renes is a designer ladies clothes shop based in the centre of Lancaster and sells a wide range of clothing and fashion accessories from around the globe.

Since

1955

The 50’s changed and shaped fashion forever as the 50’s moved Britain from the austerity of the 1940’s to the prosperity of the 1960’s.  Style and spending was developed.  1950’s glamour arrived and naturally so did Renes, the rest is history!

The first shop was established in 1955 by Irene Newby along with her daughter Pamela and soon to follow Brenda, more shops followed thereafter, finally residing on King Street in Lancaster spanning three floors with a quadruple frontage.  Renes adorned the latest fashion and bridalwear in the region.  Ask any local girl and you can guarantee Renes is where they bought their wedding dress  or first teen outfit.  It was so popular during Sale times  that a queue formed around the shop before opening time.

Over the years Renes has never lost its pizzazz and is now based on Common Garden Street in Lancaster which is a stones throw away from the original King Street store. The business is still a family run affair with Amanda and Tiffany taking the business forward over the coming years.

At Renes, customer service is at the forefront of our minds, we embrace that “Personal Shopping Experience” and “Personal Touch”.  A service that is ever diminishing in shops everywhere,  but we still pride ourselves on how important it still is to us and something that, we know,  is very much welcome locally

We truly care about our customers, how they feel and how they want to feel. We want them to walk out of our shop having had a “wonderful” shopping experience and feel a million dollars too!

Amanda and Tiffany, would very much like to thank all our loyal customers who have supported Renes throughout the last 66 years and hope that support and loyalty continues over the coming years.

Long may it last ladies.

As always, the staff gave friendly, knowledgeable advice and gave time for me to browse freely and to try different choices of designs. The range of sizes, brands and styles is amazing. I have never felt pushed into buying. Big thank you from me.

Renee's is a ladies clothes shop that sells all different brands to suit the young and more mature lady. They are always very helpful and if you have a wedding this year, going on holiday, or just want to treat yourself go and have a look. They make you very welcome with a coffee and sometimes cakes. I love my Joseph Riboff blouse thank you.

I have been a customer at Renes for over 50 years, going back to when the shop was in the arndale centre and Rene was " in charge." Without exception I have always had excellent, friendly service and good advice. Nothing is too much trouble, as a customer I feel part of the "family". My "staple" wardrobe has several outfits which I always feel good in. Times have changed Rene,s may have gone digital but is as reliable as ever. Tiff and Amanda, keep the flag flying !! Joyce Bond

I have been shopping at Renes for over 30 years - it remains my favourite place to shop when I am looking for a special outfit. The choice is always outstanding with some fabulous brands. Tiffany and Amanda always ensure a friendly and helpful service, which makes the experience extremely enjoyable. Keep up the great work girls and see you soon as I need a wedding outfit ! - I highly recommend Renes Fashion.

Tiffany joined the business over 7 years ago after a career in banking in London. Fashion is in her blood and comes like a second nature to her, she is passionate about her customers, service and keeping the family business alive.

 

 

Amanda has worked in the family business all of her life and she has vast experience in fashion, retail and customer service. If you want to feel like a million dollars in the clothes you buy, Amanda will help you do just that.

Fundraising is at the heart and soul of Renes Fashion.

When we host events we ensure to include a fundraising element for a selected charity. This is either a raffle, donated ticket proceeds or in line with a promotion/event we are running. We also host charitable events such as The Macmillan Coffee Morning, Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Day and more. Over the years we have tried our best to support a variety of causes and charities and will continue to do so at every opportunity we can to give back.

As we say at Renes…If you can be anything in the world, Be Kind.
