It’s been a crazy month here at Sh! Towers. Plenty of happy customers skipping out with their pink bags stuffed with goodies, preparing for the loooong Easter Weekend. For those of you meaning to call and ask about opening hours:
Saturday 30th March ~ 12-8pm
Sunday 31st March ~ Closed
Monday 1st April onwards~ 12-8pm
(Remember that clocks go forward on Sunday 31st March)
Of course, the Sh! Website is always open!
If you haven’t had time to visit us this month, set aside some *you-time* and schedule a trip to Sh! in April. Happy Hour lands on Thursday 4th April (6-8pm), and what could be more perfect than a glass of bubbly whilst you peruse our vast selection of the finest sex toys in town.
So, what have you missed this month…?
It’s been Women’s History Month, and International Women’s Day (March 8th). We’ve had some wonderful guest blogs from Whore Magazine, and Girls Get Busy Zine. Our very own Kathryn Hoyle, Founder and Managing Director of Sh!, spoke on the panel of the Sex and Sensibilities at the WOW Festival. (That’s Women of the World Festival). Some of the lucky ladies sitting in on the debate found their way to our Hoxton store for a free sample of our deliciously silky Lush Liquid Lubricant. Along with many of the global feminist community, we’ve been outraged by the media coverage of the Steubenville sexual assault case, and have been sending out a powerful ‘Say No to Victim-Blaming’ message to our followers. We hope you all do the same!
We were nominated for a RWL Award, and although we didn’t win our catergory, we had a fabulous night with all the other nominees at the Horse Bar in Central London.
Have you checked out the latest issue of Diva Magazine? If not, I *strongly* suggest you pick up a copy soon. (Coincidentally we stock Diva here at Sh! Hoxton, wink, wink) This month is the Sex Issue, and as you flick through (ahem) you’ll see your favourite women’s only sex store has been mentioned *quite* a few times.
Congratulations to Vanessa for winning tickets to Burlexe next month. Burlexe is the new theatrical show based on the stories of the women who created burlesque. The show runs weekly from Wednesday 27th March at 10pm.
Here at Sh!, we *love* some good erotic fiction, and this month we started our own Book of the Month on the Sh! Blog. March was dedicated to Nancy Friday, and today is your last day to get your free sample of Lush Lubricant with every Nancy Friday purchase.
It’s also the last day to enter our Toy of the Month Competition. All you need to do is comment on the Toy of the Month blog post to be in with a chance of winning! The winner will be chosen later today ~ so good luck everyone!
We’ve been very busy with events during March. If you attended one of our classes, we hope you had a fabulous time (it certainly looked like you all did!). We have a couple of spaces left on our next Blow His Mind class on Wednesday 3rd April. We also have some great deals on private parties (including hen parties).
The most popular toys in store this month have been Waterproof Jessica Rabbit and Discretion Vibe. Waterproof Jessica has been a classic for *many* years, and continues to please women across the UK (if our statistics are anything to go by!) Discretion Vibe is cute, handbag-sized toy, perfect for travelling, with a powerful buzz. Avoid embarrassing security stops by taking out your battery prior to boarding planes!
The Sh! Blog has been equally bursting with exciting gossip. Have you seen our Harlem Shake yet? WHAT? NO? That’s okay, check it out here.
We’ve been lucky enough to have six *amazing* authors sharing their smut on the blog. Thank you to Kristina Wright, Kay Jaybee, Tamsin Flowers, Lily Harlem & Natalie Dae, and Tabitha Rayne for your Filthy Friday stories… We’re looking forward to more hot erotica next month!
That’s all for now, folks!
Have a lovely Easter!
