Ivory Lane’s specialty is offering womenswear in the smart casual and occasion wear category. With their impressive selection of mix and match pieces, we think they are an excellent boutique to visit the next time you’re in the Oranmore area.

What we really like about them is that they have great delivery terms and conditions. They can accommodate different ways to get the items which definitely makes it more convenient for customers in various areas.

For orders above € 80, they offer free shipping across all of Ireland. Customers who live nearby can also choose the click-and-collect option.

Aside from this, they also accept Klarna as a payment option. This makes it especially flexible for customers looking to pay through an installment method.

The clothing they offer itself is very substantial and distinct in terms of range. Even though it’s a boutique, customers can easily find outfits alongside accessories for a full look.

We especially like the options they have for blouses as they feature ones with interesting patterns and bold colors that pair really well with trousers. We would also advise people to be on the lookout for sales as they have great deals from time to time.

Keep in mind however, that their selection of footwear may not be the widest and most varied out there.

Stop by Ivory Lane if you’re looking for some more affordable options and a wide selection to choose from.

Pros

  • Has a unique item range of raincoats
  • Free delivery policy applicable to all of Ireland
  • Great sale prices
  • Cohesive selection for a more casual style

Cons

  • Refund request must be made within 14 days of order
  • More limited footwear selection

Fusion Fashion has the perfect selection for you if you’re looking for bold, monochromatic classy dress options. They also have accessories that would pair perfectly with your chosen look for a night out.

Although they don’t offer free shipping perks, they do offer an affordable standard shipping rate across the whole of Ireland. These deliveries take three to five working days but they also do accommodate shipping to the UK.

If you are thinking about returning items, we highly suggest checking out their conditions or consulting them beforehand. They’re quite strict with accepting only certain items.

Now, in terms of their product range, we find their dresses to be the most impressive. They have bold colored options with very flattering silhouettes that make the perfect choice for fun gatherings where you would still want to look put together.

Their selection of coats and blazers are great as well, offering the same strong colors that can go great with adding pops of interest to more casual ensembles.

What makes shopping here convenient is that they also have suitable options of accessories and shoes to pair with these pieces. We like that you can really tell that the owner carefully curated the items whether they be high heels or clutches.

Pros

  • Great for monochromatic and color block options
  • Good sale prices
  • Excellent range of clutches and shoes
  • Very helpful staff

Cons

  • Stock for some items are limited
  • Does not offer free shipping

Located at Lydon Court, Colette Latchford Fashion Galway is a boutique that offers a great selection of international brands and great deals on seasonal sales. 

Since their establishment in 1997, their services make it very convenient for customers to shop through the different channels they offer, online, in-store or even through call.

What we appreciate about them is that their items mix both local and international clothing brands into one whole shopping experience. Some of these brands include Emme (By Marella), Aldo Martins, Fabienne and Marccain.

We find that this makes them an excellent choice especially for customers looking for a boutique offering a varied selection of styles. 

From simpler effortless pieces to more colorfully patterned options, we like that the curation invites customers to try very different and distinct clothing choices.

Another thing we like about them is that they have seasonal sale deals on occasion. Some item prices are even cut in half, so you could snag a great offer during certain periods.

We highly suggest checking out their online sale section from time to time.

However, take note that these sale items, should you buy them, are not eligible for refund, so it is important to be certain of your purchase. Also, these returned items’ shipment fees will be shouldered by the buyer.

All in all however, Colette Latchford Fashion Galway impresses us with their curation of brands and styles, as well as the occasional deals they offer.

Pros

  • Have great sale deals from time to time
  • Offer a click and call service as an alternative to online purchasing
  • Great variety of brands with different styles
  • Good place to visit for seasonal clothing

Cons

  • Sale items are not applicable for refunding
  • Shipment fees of returned items are non-refundable

Customer Reviews

Great Staff Service

You’ll always be very satisfied with your purchases from Colettes. The staff are so helpful and eager to please and are very aware of what suits and doesn’t suit. They will never push something on you if it does not suit. That’s my experience and I’ve being a fan of Colettes for a long time. – Mary Ward

Guna Deas cultivates a certain look and aesthetic when it comes to their offerings. We find it to be a great boutique to visit if you’re looking for unique pieces that you wouldn’t find in other stores.

The shop itself has a great ambiance, with the interior and exterior combining a rustic, casual look with a modern and well lit flair from its window arches and wooden floors.

What separates them from other boutiques in the area, is their selection of clothing. From the materials, silhouettes, and cuts, we highly recommend them if you are looking for options that will push your style.

Some of these include leather dresses, lace detailed pieces, and puffer coats and quilted options to name a few. They still have simpler options as well, making their curation very balanced.

We also really like the unique offerings they have for hats. This includes fedoras in different colors and some even have decorative feathers attached. 

If you are opting for delivery, take note that their services usually take 7 to 9 working days.

But aside from this, it really is an excellent place to find unique statement pieces that can add interest and creativity to an outfit. 

Pros

  • Nice store ambience and atmosphere
  • Slightly more unique clothing pieces
  • Offers worldwide shipping
  • Have distinct item categories for watches and self care products

Cons

  • Closed on Sundays
  • Delivery takes around 7 to 9 working days

Harper Galway is a must-visit boutique if you’re looking for quality dress options that are chic, bold, and classy.

They are a local business that opened in 2007. They have a modern selection of clothing that’s perfect for special occasions and evening gatherings. 

What stands out about them are their options for dresses in particular. They have a large number of options for cocktail dresses that vary in style, color, and shape.

Customers will definitely be pleased with the amount of options they have in this category. Aside from this, their other clothing pieces are very chic and sophisticated as well, such as jumpsuits, coats and jackets.

However, it is important to remember that compared to other stores, their refund policy for online purchases of ten days is slightly stricter. Likewise, their condition for free shipping of an order totalling € 150 is much pricier compared to other boutiques.

Nonetheless, we still find them to be a great choice for customers looking for very efficient shipping. They offer fast deliveries averaging around 1 to 2 days for all of Ireland. 

Pros

  • Efficient delivery
  • Very complementary accessories selection
  • Fantastic sale prices
  • Great place to buy evening or cocktail dresses

Cons

  • Less options for more casual pieces
  • Higher cost total needed for free shipping
