    Prom is fast becoming a highly anticipated date in school and college calendars, notably it marks the end of exams, but it is possibly the last time many students will see their class mates, so inevitably, they want to go out in style.


    This once all American tradition has swept the UK and now the PROM DRESS is must-have for a lot of 16-21 year old girls so getting it right is vital.

    On Thursday 24th April our Brick Lane flagship will be party-ready with over 200 stunning dresses from 1930s fairy-tale princesses to 90s silk slips and everything in between, along with a a variety of hair accessories, footwear and bags, to ensure every outfit is complete.

    We are offering the assistance of our expert team to help shoppers find the perfect prom attire to suit every style, and of course every budget; having opened the OUTLET shop-in-shop this week within the Brick Lane store, there will be plenty of amazing vintage with up to 70% off. We totally understand that students don’t have much cash to flash but believe you don’t need to spend a fortune to look a million dollars. We are here to help.

    Shoppers will be able to walk away with dresses from as little as £18, shoes from just £10 and bags from £7, there is definitely the ability to put together a winning outfit for under £50. Each piece is one of a kind so there will be no danger of turning up in the same thing as anyone else either. Now that’s something no potential prom King or Queen ever wants to face!

    This is not just one for the girls either. Gentlemen will be able to find a wide assortment of bow ties, braces, shirts, waistcoats, jackets and trousers to create a look unique to their personal style.

    But it doesn't stop there... oh no. As a special treat we have opened up our archive to bring a selection of possibly the most outstanding pieces we have ever seen. These beauties will be displayed alongside their historical information carefully selected by our very own Archive Manager, and whilst you marvel at their elegance and charm these treasures will also be available to buy on request.

    Join us for drinks and live DJ from 6pm-8pm, the pre-prom party if you like, the best bit? You don’t have to be a school, college or university leaver to join us. This event is open to everyone and free to attend.


    Thursday 24th April. 6PM-8PM

  • Teen Icons Past and Present

    What up kids! Since the dawn of the 20th century and the emergence of mass communication, the notion of teen icons has come to dominate pop culture. Even in the wake of a digital revolution, you still can't get much better than festooning your bedroom wall into a poster haven and shrine to your favourite icon. So we took a trip back in time, picking out a few of our favourite teen idols past and present. 

    From flapper favourite Rudy Vallée, the first singer to be adored and idealised by thousands of teenagers, to the original idol Sinatra... many paved the way before the likes of Bieber and 1D came to town. Then came the 1950s and 1960s. The success of young rock stars such as Elvis and Pat Boone coupled with the emergence of youth subcultures, post-war prosperity, portable phonographs and a rising youth market meant that the unwavering power of the teen icon had officially came to town!

    Who's your teen idol?

    Andrew Reynolds 


    The Spice Girls


    Blink 182




    The Rolling Stones




    James Dean 


    The King of teen idols, Elvis


    Stay tuned for a 'Get the Look' post!

  • #ShowUsWhatyaGot and let us see your wares!

    We love to see what you guys find in our stores, so #ShowUsWhatyaGot and let us see your wares!


    As you know there is the opportunity to find pretty much anything in Beyond Retro from vintage Dior to priceless full body Samurai armour (seriously), the possibilities are endless.

    Did you know we deliver around 6000 new items across our stores each week and a further 2000 online? This makes us the biggest independent retailer in the UK where product is concerned, which is pretty impressive even if we say so ourselves *pats self on the back*.

    With such extensive quantities of amazing vintage passing through our doors each day it's easy for us to miss some of the gems that have been snapped up, and we feel kinda sad about that as we want to 'high five' you with a well done for your eagle-eyed shopping skills, and feel perhaps a little bit envious hat we hadn't spotted it ourselves! So, what we would love for you to do is #ShowUsWhatyaGot! Simple.

    Show off your wares and rub everyones noses in it for not snapping them up themselves on Twitter and instagram using the hashtags #BeyondRetro and #ShowUsWhatyaGot, we will then pick some of the best to feature and give you a shout-out to tell the world you are great!

    Why not start this weekend, don't forget we have opened our OUTLET in Brick Lane, there are certainly some great finds to be had there.....Happy shopping!
