We’re celebrating 20 years of successful independent business!

We have been reminiscing over the past 20 amazing years and reflecting on the fabulous things we have achieved, the generous & likeminded local businesses, colleagues, friends and family! Wow what a journey we’ve had.

Working with and supporting truly amazing charities, meeting some of the most humbling & inspirational women over the years! We invite you to browse through our picture montage, share the LOVE…. And say cheers to the next 20!

Our last montage is a tribute to Mr V, the glue of the business, the man who has been buying for the ladies of Norwich & Norfolk for over 20 years! Mr V has been in retail for over 40 years, what an achievement – Thank you Mr V!

Styling & dressing the amazing women of Norfolk truly drives our passion, we thought we would share their thoughts about Vanilla Norwich!…

Here’s what they have to say:

Vanilla is a unique out of town shopping experience. I have been shopping in this lovely independent boutique for years.
The staff are always helpful and friendly and the clothes just that little bit different from those you would find on the high street. Anne – Norfolk

 I remember when Vanilla first opened and I met Anita, I went home with my purchase and a happy feeling. Since then I have introduced many people to Vanilla, including my own daughters, who still can’t resist a little shopping trip whenever they visit. I can truly say that over the past 20 years Anita and her staff have always been friendly and helpful without ever being pushy.Who needs chain stores and internet shopping when you can have the wonderful feeling of carrying your purchase home and showing it off!Please keep doing what you do, we need more shops like yours. Carole – Norwich

Going to Vanilla feels like shopping with trusted friends, there’s a connection from the first time you visit.  I usually go on my own but all of the staff give me great advice whether I am looking for a pair of jeans or a cocktail dress.
I am a pretty lazy shopper so it’s great to know I can go to one place and be guaranteed to find stuff I love.
They know what suits me and I never come out empty -handed! Sophie – Norwich
