Cornwall Living 2018

Gorgeous gowns

We discover the treasure trove of eveningwear at Pam’s People.

Do you have a special occasion coming up that demands a new outfit? If the answer is “yes”, perhaps you should pay a visit to Pam’s People.

Beautiful dresses of great quality for proms, balls, cruises, parties, confirmations, christenings and other social events are all available, as well as stunning wedding attire, including bridal, mother of the bride, bridesmaids and alternative wedding outfits. What’s more, the shop carries a wide range of shoes, bags, gloves and jewellery, so you won’t have to frantically search for accessories to match, after you’ve found your perfect dress.

Originally founded by Pam Jeffery in Truro, the company celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, and can now be found in Camborne, with present owner and Pam’s natural successor, Ursula, at the helm. Providing a personal one-to-one service, you are able to make an appointment at a time that suits you, enjoying your own time to select and try on various garments and accessories. Or, if you’d prefer, Pam’s also offers a ‘drop in’ every Saturday between 10am and 4pm. With sizes ranging from 0 to 36 for most pieces and prices starting from just £50, there really is something for everyone. Plus, there’s no need to worry about the dreaded thought of someone wearing the same outfit as you, since a record of sales is kept so that there are no identical dresses sold for the same event in Cornwall.

Stock is continually being renewed with the latest trends and styles in mind, and there is a selection of half price or less than half price dresses and shoes, so it’s the perfect place to have a browse if you’re on a budget. Additionally, Ursula puts together fashion shows for school and charities and other organisations; these can be arranged free of charge. This year, she’s even launching a dress hire service, ideal for any occasion where you want to look your best.

With so much to offer and at unbeatable prices, Pam’s People is most definitely a one-stop shop for your next formal event.
