At Lily Ella, we’re proud of our Northern roots. 

After first opening our doors in August 2013, Lily Ella has proudly flown the flag for independent fashion in the North East for the last seven years, creating all of our beautiful, timeless collections in-house. The team includes founder and designer Zoe Glover and a specialist team of garment technicians and merchandisers. 

Founded by a team who are passionate about print, garments and quality, Lily Ella’s inspiration for the brand was close to home and the new Spring Summer collection is no exception. From Cullercoats to Glanton, Clifton to Prudhoe, Lily Ella’s SS20 womenswear collection pays homage to some of our most memorable, idyllic spots around the North East. Keep reading the Lily Ella Spring/Summer 2020 womenswear collection guide, as we talk you through some of our favourite spots around the North East and the exclusive Lily Ella clothing collection that has taken inspiration from the places we hold close to us.


Small, yet picturesque, the quaint coastal village of Cullercoats is situated between Tynemouth and Whitley Bay and is home to a small, but beautiful sandy bay. We particularly love this secluded spot at Lily Ella for its coastal walks, as the Cullercoats village is filled with award-winning ice-cream parlours and you’re never too far away from a traditional fish and chip shop. Our Cullercoats button-up top is a feminine, classic white style with lace detail across the front and shoulders. Charming, breathable and perfect for a sunny day at the seaside thanks to the 100% cotton fabric, this feminine favourite is a summer wardrobe staple for all spring activities. 

Here at Lily Ella, we recommend pairing our signature Cullercoats top with our blissfully comfortable Marden trousers. These stripey, nautical-inspired trousers feature a fully elasticated waist and are made from 100% cotton - perfect for keeping you cool, comfortable and stylish for whatever activities the spring and summer months may bring.

A small village nestled near Hexham in the Northumbrian valley of South Tyne, Langley is renowned for its rich historical culture, thanks to the 14th-century Langley Castle standing proudly as a key local attraction. Favoured for its exquisite interiors, idyllic grounds and impressive architecture, the luxurious fortified castle gave us the inspiration to create an equally as dazzling clothing collection. Discover the Langley Blouse at Lily Ella, a stunning, superbly cut blouse made from a rich green fabric emblazoned with a dramatic paisley design.

Cleverly crafted to feature many flattering characteristics; a discreet back yoke with centre pleats, elasticated ruched shoulders and a ¾ sleeves with a concealed turn-back tab, the beautiful Langley women’s blouse is a glamorous evening contender for those warm, summer nights. Pair the Langley blouse with our contrasting Porter Bag, a sophisticated leather cross-body bag in a fabulous shade of raspberry, with two zip-compartments and an open-back pocket for additional space. 


Acomb is a countryside village south of Northumberland, with the Anglo-Saxon Old English nameat the Oak trees’. The rural, picturesque village is a stone’s throw away from Hadrian’s wall, offering an excellent array of beautiful country walks rich with history and heritage. Our Acomb showerproof coat is a fashionable, classic showerproof jacket that is the perfect accompaniment for a brisk spring walk across the countryside. Available in two colourways to suit all style preferences at Lily Ella, the Acomb jacket features a detachable hood, convenient pockets and a concealed front zip with contrasting fold-up sleeves and lining.


Grindon Dress

Close to the beautiful, grade II* listed Hardwick Hall country park, it’s no wonder the Grindon-inspired floral dress at Lily Ella is the perfect outfit for a stroll in the park. Whatever your springtime plans consist of, the stunning shades of purple, turquoise and lilac mixed within the Grindon floral fabric will keep you looking fabulous, no matter what the day may hold.

Perfect for a picnic with loved ones, or refined enough to flaunt at a more formal occasion such as a wedding, the Grindon pintuck dress features an opulent painterly print, with bust darts, side-seam pockets, clever pin tucks and yokes. Made from 100% cotton, the natural breathable properties of the Grindon dress allow you to remain effortlessly stylish, whilst keeping cool, comfortable and beautifully-collected. Style up the glamorous Grindon dress with coordinating Grindon Scarf, to wrap around your arms when the weather starts to turn chilly in the evening, or simply wear around your neck to complete the Grindon-inspired look.
