Oh hey you!

Day 22 in the big worldwide holiday home! 

Have you gone a little bit cuckoo yet? 

I for one know that this has been a big time of change, but the gorgeous thing has been seeing the positive response from all the beautiful people out there. This week alone I've been in a virtual reading of Little Women (I love you Greta Gerwig), a Zoom Shakespeare nerd out, an evening yoga retreat, and two pub quizzes (drinks included!). 

However, my thoughts have been with my friends with tiny wee beans (including top dog Claire), and how I can help them by having a chat with their tiny ones, watching Disney films on Netflix Party with them, or sending imagined adventure postcards to send to them. 

We absolutely love having little visitors to the store, and I always make time to get them behind the till playing shops and serving their parents or sat in the reading chair with one of our fantastic kids' books. 

Which got me thinking - what if we can bring the fancy pants right to your home? 

So I've created this Fancy Pants colouring-in activity book for you and your wee ones! All you need is a printer to colour us and the shop in, and your own pair of fancy pants!

You guys might remember that our offering to Cuba Dupa is decorating fancy pants in store. We were obviously so sad that our friends at Cuba Dupa weren't able to go ahead with their vision this year, but are chuffed to bits to hear that they're doing a Facebook Live event this Saturday, click on the link below to check them out. 

If you have a go at decorating some pants or our shop, either in real life, or digitally, please send us a picture of your fancy pants ~ we would love to see them!

Tag us in them on Instagram @madamefancypants and you could be in with a chance to win two $50 vouchers!

To get the activity pack - go here -

You can either print it and colour it with pencils or paint, or download an app like Pigment at www.pixiteapps.com/pigment, save the images, and colour it in on your phone!

We will announce the winner on the 25th of April.

Much love <3

About the Madame herself (ok, so that's me!)

Before I opened Madame Fancy Pants I had always been crafty, musical and worked in customer service but never sure of where I wanted to land my feet every day, My favorite part of customer service was (and is!) the people! Talking to customers and getting to know regulars. But, it wasn’t until I opened my store that I knew how much I loved helping women feel confident in choosing the perfect garment or piece of jewellery and the joy of helping customers pick out the perfect gift.

This is why #madamefancypants exists today.

I ain't gonna lie - I sure miss that wee store right now!⁠ So there you have it! But, enough about me! 😊 What has influenced you to get where you are today?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠
