Meet the Stockist - Agatha - Toolally

Meet the Stockist: Agatha

Agatha is a beautiful, high fashion boutique in the heart of Lincoln owned by husband and wife Carl and Roberta. They joined the Toolally family earlier this year so we sat down with Roberta to talk all thing fashion, life and Toolally!

Tell us the story behind Agatha, how did it all start?
It was over 20-odd years ago that Agatha started by myself and my husband, Carl. We went from menswear to womenswear, I wanted a bust size rather than a chest size to dress!

What do you like to do in your free time?
Being with my girlfriends, catching up, if there’s fizz and cake – all the better!

Three things you can’t live without?
Chocolate, friends and family – not necessarily in that order!

What are your wardrobe staples for this season?
Pleated skirts, trainers and any piece of leopard print.

Favourite thing about working in fashion?
Meeting the people and making the friends I’ve made. Encouraging younger people in this industry is also great. As is the fact that we’re still enjoying it after all these years; as a little girl I used to make my Tressa dolls clothes and style her, now I’m doing what I’ve always loved.

What is your favourite account to follow on Instagram right now?
@Bettymagazine – and not just because she’s my daughter!

Favourite trend/fashion era?
Not that it’s anything to do with reliving my youth, but, getting glammed up in the 70s and 80s was a favourite time. The ‘backcombing Elnett’ era!

What’s for dinner tonight?
Straight from work to a friends wine/gin bar then on to a local gourmet burger restaurant.

Favourite pair of Toolallys?
At the moment, today’s pair, are the LBD Hoops in tortoiseshell, they’ll take you into the morning after the night before!
