Retailer transforms store for trio of glamorous evenings.
Leicester-based jewellers Lumbers entertained 250 guests over three nights by transforming its store into a Michelin Star restaurant.
The retailer’s most loyal customers enjoyed a Henriot champagne reception, four-course meal provided by the Finesse Collection, a dynamic and luxurious Hotel group from the East Midlands, a preview of the latest jewellery from brands such as Breitling, Chopard, Breguet and Bulgari and entertainment by The X factor and Eurovision star Andy Abraham.
Lumbers managing director Dominic Gomersall said: “It was great to see Lumbers turned into a Michelin Star restaurant, the evening offered the unique experience of dining in a luxury boutique and being surrounded by some of the most exclusive jewellery designs in fashion today. Andy Abraham is one of the most naturally gifted performers in the UK and was a huge hit on all of the evenings.”
The evenings were sponsored by private banking and wealth management firm Coutts & Co, financial experts RSM Tenon and pension consultants Mattioli Woods. Guests on the evening were also be able to view the corset designs of Gillian Wesley, a boutique based in the West Midlands. East Midlands business network Aspirational, which includes Bentley, Bentons, St James’ Place Wealth Management, Champions, The Finesse Collection, Berkeley Insurance and Lumbers, also helped to support the evenings by sponsoring one of the nights.
Lumbers raised £1,000 over the three evenings for Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, based in Loughborough. Rainbows are the only hospice in the East Midlands that dedicates its time to the needs of children and young people with life-limiting illnesses and conditions.
