La Boudoir Boutique Now Open

La Boudoir Boutique is open!

After months of hard work, intense preparation and design, the La Boudoir Boutique grand opening day finally came around!

With Jo Hemmings, Celebrity Big Brother Psychologist opening the shop and other VIP’s gracing us with their presence, the boutique sex shop opening was going to be big and it was going to be good. We started the opening the night before with drinks on the rooftop of the Sands Hotel in Margate with our celebrity guests, overlooking the beautiful sunset.

La Boudoir Boutique was a flurry of staff that morning of the 23rd of August, adding finishing touches to the shop, organising the photographer and two models plus hair and makeup for the boudoir themed photoshoot that showed off the fantastic lingerie donated by Kevco Wholesale. Guests began to arrive, trickling in slowly and Kyle Fontaine and Meely Lo from OhhMy were the first to greet us. We welcomed Dale from the ETO magazine, Claire and Danielle from Net 1on1, Paul from ID Web, Sam from ABS Holdings and Leigh from Rocks Off and we also welcomed Sex Toy Blogger Cara Sutra and her girlfriend Ellie who acted as official photographer for the event as well as erotic authors K D Grace and Kay Jaybee, part of the Brit Babes who were to read us extracts from their erotic books and also do a book signing and we also welcomed Nymphomaniac Ness- sex educator.

We were Joined by Kiki Case, founder of Isle magazine in thanet, the Lingerie Calendar photographer Roger Charles and his helper, the Angry Britain crew and Mandy from the Kent on Sunday Newspaper.

The food and drink flowed with the conversation and it was soon time for the bosses speech and the official opening. Jo Hemmings was to open the shop and did so by unlocking the two models handcuffed together in the doorway, a fantastically symbolic way to open up we thought! The opening was followed by the two book readings, from The Perfect Submissive by Kay Jaybee and The Pet Shop by K D Grace. The readings proceeded to get everyone a little hot under the collar and encouraged our guests to cool off with a game of ‘Hook a Duck’. This Hook a Duck had a twist though- all the ducks were sexy, as were the prizes! Money off vouchers, Super Slik Lubricants and even our naughty goody bags were given away as prizes, with the star prize being the wonderful Bondage themed I Rub My Ducky!

The La Boudoir Boutique cake which was handcrafted by the wonderful Billie from Sweetie Darling cakes followed and was cut by The Boss and his Partner. We all ate cake and mingled some more, much to our delight our guests loved the products and Victor Ebuwa found the large dildos (Doc Johnson Dick Rambone) particularly amusing.

The Fifty Shades of Grey Feature wall looked magnificent, as did the Loving Joy wall and the incredible House of Eros wall, although the Rocks Off feature wall really was the pride and joy, being the very first of its kind- the artwork teamed with La Boudoir Boutique artwork was incredible!

As the end of the day drew near, it was time to say goodbye and bid a great journey home to our celebrities and guests, who all took a wonderful goody bag that our suppliers helped us to put together. Inside was a vibrator from ID Web, a Lady Finger and mini lubricants from Net 1on1, Fishnet stockings from Bluemoon Lingerie, a Fetish Fantasy mug and wrist band from ABS Holdings and Condoms donated from Pasante. Xcite books also kindly donated some Ebooks for the goody bags so every person could read some fantastic erotica!

Planet Earth Wholesale very graciously donated five goody bags for our celebrity guests which included Pink Daisy Bleaching Cream, Masque oral sex mouth strips, lubricant, libido enhancing food supplement and a sachet of the fantastic Uberlube which was also included in our goody bags. Uberlube had its own separate stand at our opening, showcasing its amazing properties and fantastic, luxury looks. Nookii wonderfully donated the Nookii board game for our guests to test out and blush at- and that certainly happened!

 We of course would like to extend a huge thank you from all of us at La Boudoir Boutique to everybody that came to the opening, generously donated and to all of our suppliers!

The shop opening we felt went well- it gave us the chance to really interact with our peers and strengthen friendships and working relationships but also have some fun.
