Keep it local with The Stylists

If you’re looking for a special gift this Christmas, The Stylists Lifestyle Store in Ranmoor is a treasure trove of unique pieces covering homeware, fashion, accessories and more.

Personal stylist Francesca Allen took over the premises, which she shares with friend and hair stylist Alexandra Green back in May, and had finished the renovation by July, with the intention of using it as a place to meet clients.

As well as having a seperate room which provides a professional base for those consultations and sessions, the spacious front room presented an exciting opportunity for Francesca to further indulge her passion for all things homeware, fashion and style.

“I’ve always loved the independent gift shops you stumble across, the hidden gems selling trinkets, candles, cards, accessories – interesting bits that you won’t find elsewhere” she says. ” So I decided to transform the front room into a shop and fill it with precisely those sorts of items.” says Francesca.

A colourful boutique store quickly took shape and today resembles an Aladdin’s Cave of distinctive gifts and treats, covering everything from baby gifts and women’s clothing to books and stationery. The collection has been compiled with a sustainable ethos in mind; there’s a strong commitment to stocking UK brands and showcasing products made in Sheffield and across Yorkshire, many of which have been repurposed or made by hand using eco-friendly practices.

Francesca tells us that she sees local retailers as an increasingly important cog in cities like Sheffield, not just as a way of keeping the local economy afloat but also providing customers with exclusive experiences and purchases. “We try to ensure that the sort of products you find here are special pieces – one-offs that you’re unable to find at a big retailer on the high street. I’m a massive advocate of buying local as it keeps the money in local businesses, which can then be invested back into local communities.”

You can explore their ever-expanding collection in person Tuesday to Saturday (10am-4:30pm) at 362 Fulwood Road or online at A range of delivery options including click and collect are available, while a gift wrapping service and gift cards at a variety of denominations can also be purchased.
