Resort retailer up for a trio of accolades at National Business Women’s Awards
22nd October 2018
Cleethorpes-based fashion retailer Tilletts is shortlisted for a hat-trick of accolades at the National Business Women’s Awards.
The all-female led family-owned venture is up for three of the 14 awards, to be presented at a gala dinner at Wembley Stadium in December.
Melanie Tillett, the matriarch behind the high growth operation, which has expanded from a single Cleethorpes boutique to include a Louth outlet and a Humberston warehouse and head office to handle e-commerce operations, has been nominated as Small Business Woman of The Year and Influential Business Woman Of The Year, with the company also recognised for service excellence.
Businesses can only enter three categories, so to be listed for three underlines the scale of achievement that has impressed the judges.
Mrs Tillett, 51 said: “I can’t believe it, it’s just amazing! To be named as a finalist is fantastic but to have been selected for all three is simply incredible!”
Tilletts launched in early 2011, as an addition to an initial venture in kitchen items, La Cocina. It has embraced social media as a marketing platform, and excelled with a one-size range, as well as adding its own label items to the clothes sourced.
Daughters Grace and Nancy are also directors, and will be joined by business coach and mentor John McHale on the night.
Newlywed, Grace Tillett Austwick, 26, added: “We are over the moon! To be shortlisted is an honour in itself but the icing on the cake is being invited to Wembley for the Grand Celebrations, we can’t wait!”
