It's free of charge and free from obligation.
Tracey Locke and Linda Warne were happy to model some of the store's after-five offerings.
Manager Toni Hobbs said the store tended towards "safe colours".
"A lot of them are one colour, so that's when we accessorise and add more to it," she said.
"I don't like to over-accessorise - you can take the look away.
"Small and simple, just something to add that elegance."
For looks that will last, opt for strong tailoring.
Light metallic prints also give a modern, sophisticated air.
Dresses with rouching, panels or a peplum around the waist can flatter what may be a problem area.
