Founded in 1997 by dynamic twin sister duo, Mary McSweeney and Margaret Gallagher, Les Jumelles is the West of Ireland’s exclusive stockists of some of the most sought-after luxury brands in the business, including Diane Von Furstenberg, Acne Studios, No21, Rick Owen and Moncler – to name but a few!
Margaret is a very good friend of mine, so we love getting together and talking fashion – and of course, we all hail from the same area- West Cork women unite!
Boutique shopping is definitely the stylish way to shop. We all love a great department store, but there’s something so lovely about going into a select shop and picking out pieces that were curated for you by the owners. It’s a more personal and intimate experience, which can make all the difference. Particularly if you’re shopping for a special occasion. You’ll be attended to in the nicest way, without any rush or chaos.
Both of these AMAZING ladies have their aesthetic down, renewed each year as they attend London and Paris fashion weeks – hence why they have just celebrated their 20th anniversary this year! Their longevity is owed to their popularity and the loyalty of their customer base, coupled with great taste and select pieces in store. They have all the puzzle pieces for a successful business. Just look at these pieces below!!
I love popping into them when I’m in Galway – I never leave empty handed either – in fact, I just got a fabulous coat from the shop recently.
The Church Lane store is so well laid out (over two floors) that you can go in and see everything clearly and neatly, so you can spot what you love STRAIGHTAWAY! Buy and bag, please!
Clothes, accessories footwear, the best denims – you name it, you’ll find it here. And you’ll buy an entire outfit with ease. This is a one-stop designer haven for sure. Definitely the style-savvy woman’s way to shop.
Pop into the two lovely ladies and see what luxury threads tickle your fancy!
