Vintage classic

We took delivery this week of some beautiful new vintage style jewellery and accessories.  I am really pleased that  we can offer this wonderful timeless style.   Currently in the UK they are experiencing some great vintage and retro comebacks, this trend probably will not be as apparent as we take a look at the Spanish high street.  Although I love the well polished and perfectly co-ordinated Spanish ladies, I also love it in the UK when we see young beautiful girls (and boys) expressing there own style and representing the current trends.    Although we may not follow suit in extreme styling it is always good to take a small nod at the latest trends.   The style speaks flowery, detail, beauty, colour and freshness - take a look and see what I mean.

To see our complete range of jewellery and accessories we will be attending the Connexiones market in Alcala la Real on Saturday 30th of April.    We also have a new bag collection and our usual stock of ladies clothes.  You can also view our  stock on our new ebay webpage
 http://stores.ebay.co.uk/UK-Highstreet-in-Spain     For further information about our products and locations you can either e-mail melamariposaverde184@gmail.com or telephone 0034 620574209.

Until next time,

New Ebay Website

We are very pleased to announce our new Ebay shop.   We have had some good results since January using Ebay and we decided it was time to open a shop.   Ebay is very commonly used in the UK but no so much here in Spain but I am sure it will catch up soon.   Our shop is world wide and so looking at the stats this week we have had some views from far flung place around the globe.    We are always striving to offer everyone a good price so with Ebay we have no fuel charges, commissions to pay, no rent, water etc so I am sure you will agree our prices are competitive.   The products we have for sale in our Ebay shop are just a small selection at present but we are building the shop slowly over the coming weeks.   The best thing about the shop in my opinion is the fact that I can sell things without even getting dressed, or brushing my hair etc - well, as it is now lunch time, I think it is time to change that!   Please click the link below to view our shop and take note we changed our name to appeal to a wider audience.

Take care everyone until next time   .........Melanie (and to Maria we will miss you very much)

Good Friday - 22nd April

Happy Easter to everyone, although the weather in Spain is proving quite disappointing.  Just  a week ago the temperatures were rising rapidly, so much so, that we decided to select some  our our summer range.  So here I am  pricing some beautiful summer stock in my thick socks and dressing gown - never mind at least the sun  is sure to be here soon - and for a long time.  We shall be moaning pretty soon, (as we  Brits do) that  we are far too hot and exhausted to do anything - bring it on is all I can say.

Take a look at just some of the range

Indian print Maxi dress 100% cotton with adjustable  straps (20.00 euros)

Lovely print and very easy to wear during the long hot summer!

Take a look at these beautiful Indian trousers, very comfortable in 100% cotton and only 15.00 euros

And finally a fabulous tunic for the beach, one  size with stunning sequin detail around the neck, this is a truly glamorous addition to your beach wardrobe

Great value at only 20.00 euros.
These products and many more will be available to  buy on Sunday 24th at Hotel Arrayanes 10 to 2.   Poor weather may force us to go inside but, we will be there!

New Stock of Jewellery and Accessories

We have also had a delivery of new handbags, ultra stylish and good value - we are offering our new range at the special price of 20.00 euros, recommended retail price is 34.00 euros, so grab them while you can.

Our new  jewellery is real fun, and great for gifts.   check out just some of the 150 pieces.


Thanks for taking the time to read our blog, take care hope to see you soon.

Sunday 3rd April

It  was a very disappointing day yesterday due to the weather.   We apologise to everyone who turned up to visit us but the storm clouds were gathering so we thought it best to just hold a mini market inside the hotel.   We had a fabulous Mothers day meal afterwards though.    Hopefully this Sunday we will be back to normal enjoying the sun!

The Stock has arrived

Hi, after  many phone calls and chase up e-mails our new spring stock has finally made it over the water.    I know many of you have been asking about the deliveries both here in the Conexiones center and also at Hotel Arrayanes on Sunday.    I will endeavour to put as much information as possible about the new stock .    We had another great weekend, despite a small issue of space in the Connexiones center and also wind in Almuñecar!  but overall a good weekend.  

In the very near future we will be able to offer those of you who are a follower to our blog spot a special membership price on all our products, more details to follow on that issue.    We are increasing the ladies UK high street range, our jewellery and accessories will also be changing gear as we head off into the summer months, and I really hope to be able to buy some more babies and children's clothing, our range is moving slowly but I cannot resist looking at the suppliers, there are some beautiful girls dresses that I want to buy.   At the moment though our range of stock is aimed at the over 40s, with our UK high street collection causing something of a stir.  OK down to business read on for stock details.
take care of you and yours,

Hola, después de numerosas llamadas por teléfono y muchos emails nuestra nueva colección de primavera ya ha llegado por fin. Sé que muchos de vosotros habéis estado preguntando en Conexiones sobre los pedidos y también en el hotel Arrayanes los domingos.  Intentaré poner toda la información que pueda sobre la nueva colección.                                                                          Tuvimos otro buen fin de semana, menos un pequeño problema de espacio en Conexiones y el viento que había en Almuñécar. Pero en general tuvimos un buen Finde. Próximamente podremos ofrecer a los que son seguidores a nuestro blog, ofertas especiales, más adelante os comentaré más sobre eso. También vamos a incrementar nuestra colección de mujer y también irá cambiando nuestra bisutería con la llegada del verano. También espero que podamos comprar más ropa de niño y bebe, cada vez miro más proveedores, hay unos vestidos muy bonitos de niña que quiero  comprar. En este momento nuestra colección es más para mayores de 40. Cuidaros todos, Un saludo.

Hi, We have finally had clearance on this new stock.    Arriving on the 22nd March we have a selection of Marks and Spencer tops, Per Una skirt, Wallis & Dorothy Perkins T. shirts.  Take a look at the following images, as you will see some of the stock has UK price tickets which of course is the original price.   The La Mariposa Verde price will be 50% reduced or more.    I am still trying to track down the Dorothy Perkins top that we sold out of, as soon as it is re-stocked I will post on this site.    I must say a special "Thank you" to Roy who has spent many hours creating my new display units.  We love you Roy!

Last thing, don`t forget coming up Sunday 3rd April it Mothers day again.   In my house it is reported that this day, is every day, but of course I don`t agree.

We had a great weekend and really enjoyed catching up with old friends both in Alcala la Real and in Almuñecar.  Our new jewellery range proved a big hit, in fact I have just ordered more designs.   We have also just updated the cabinets in Hotel Arrayanes with some of the new vibrant jewellery and accessories.   See photos.
