Tired of returning ill-fitting online purchases?
If you’re looking forward to a spot of proper shopping ahead of the festive season, there’s a brand-new fashion destination to explore in Midleton.
L’Atelier Boutique is now open just off Coach Horse Lane in The Square, offering stylish, seasonal collections of smart and casual clothing and accessories – every piece hand-picked to suit all shapes and sizes, including a range for the fuller figure.
Ann O’Driscoll and Roz Spencer have created a welcoming retail setting where customers are invited to relax and enjoy the shopping experience in comfort, ensuring they leave with the perfect look for a big occasion or a capsule wardrobe of stylish everyday pieces to mix and match.
“As an experienced stylist, I completely understand body shapes, sizing, styling clothes, and assembling outfits,” said Ann.
“I understand what women want from their wardrobes. I was getting frustrated trying to find the right types of clothes for myself, and for my friends and felt that retailers were not considering women like us.
“It was becoming increasingly difficult to find what I wanted, and I knew my friends and colleagues were feeling the same. I had to do something, and so L’Atelier Stylist & Boutique was born.”
While Ann had already developed a vision of how the store might look, taking inspiration from spaces she had seen on trips to Europe, the lockdown provided even more time to perfect the atmosphere in the store.
With Roz, a visual merchandiser, at her side, Ann’s vision has resulted in a creative and contemporary retail space that oozes character and charm. A vintage leather Chesterfield sofa invites weary shoppers to take a break, while an old bookcase has been reimagined into a display for La Bougie products – ideal for Christmas gifting, FYI.

Everything in the boutique has been hand-picked by Ann and Roz for quality, comfort, fit, style and price, with brands including InWear, Lounge Nine, and Mironce, as well as accessories such as jewellery, belts, and scarves.
“Our collections are perfect for women juggling busy lives around family, work, and social commitments,” said Ann.
“I have worked with hundreds of women over many years, including personal shopping trips, wardrobe edits, colour analysis, and makeup application so I offer a complimentary 15-minute style consultation (with no obligations) to our customers.
“Women today lead very busy lives and it’s often hard to keep on top of things, but I think when a woman looks good and feels good, her confidence is high, and she is better equipped to take on any challenge.”
