This was me @riacarroll AKA “Ri Ri” 5 years ago today. Cutting the red ribbon to my future world, and now passion of my life, @ririsboutique. Words can’t describe how grateful and proud I feel today looking back to where it all started and seeing just how far we have come. These last few years have flown by and I have loved every single minute (well almost).
If you want to read exactly how Ri Ri’s even came to exist then have a little read of this... http://www.riris.co.uk/our-success-story/
A huge thank you firstly to my family and special friends for their continued support. My Dad for accompanying me on every single buying trip to date and for picking me up from Ri Ri’s every night at 10.30pm (or even later) when we are in our crazy season and my body is just about to give in. You are the best taxi driver in the world. Mum, I really couldn't do it without you. You are my rock and I am so lucky to have a Mum I can call on who will be there without a seconds' thought! You have helped me make Ri Ri's what it is today! I love you ❤️ I want to thank all of our customers, our regulars and our gorgeous prom girls over the past 5 years. You have all made me so proud and I am very honoured you chose Ri Ri’s as the place to create your prom dress dreams. Without all of you I wouldn’t be where I am now.
I am already looking forward to seeing all of our 2019 prom customers on their big day!
Please do share your pictures here for everyone to see, just to remind everyone how amazing you all looked! It would be amazing to see as many Ri Ri’s prom girls tagged in instagram stories over the next few days to celebrate.
And please do share our page with the current year 11 students to help me spread the word of Ri Ri's even further! I have dreams of making Ri Ri's no.1 destination for prom shoppers! :-) Your feedback as past customers is always appreciated and any ideas or requests on how I could make Ri Ri's even better would be wonderful.
Thanks again to everyone who has played a part in my last 5 years of business, it's been the best gamble I have ever taken in my life! So good in fact, that I have some HUMUNGOUS news I cannot wait to share with you all VERY SOON!
