Ain't Nothin But a Hound Dog

Ever since Delilah's penchant for leather turned to the demise of her (rather expensive) collar bought from Doggy Fashion in Hove, Mr. Bluebirdcage and I have been on the lookout for a new doggy boutique for Lila's neckwear.

Enter Holly & Lil.

Set on Bermondsey Street, just shy of London Bridge, this quaint boutique opens its entrance (a white picket fence) to a beautiful assortment of hand crafted collars and leads for dogs & cats alike. Can't find the size you need? Holly & Lil, also offer bespoke designs & fittings to accommodate to your pet's needs.

Boutique wrapping. Wall of leads. Resident pups. New collars.

The staff are very friendly & accommodating and even remembered the names of Delilah & Vinny (our new boy) when the hubs & I returned for a second visit.

The collars are not cheap, but the price is credited in the craftsmanship & couture styling of each season's lines. For Delilah, we opted for a limited edition pale pink Harris Tweed (yes, certain lines have limited availability!), and followed it up by a vibrant pink colourblocked number.

We're bound to go back for another visit once Vin joins the family for good.


Until next time...
