This month, we meet the owner of the BLUSH boutique in Haslemere, Lindsey Lunn, 55, to find out all the hot trends for this coming winter

What would you say are the key trends for this season?
Dresses and tunics teamed with gorgeous knitwear. Capes are on trend, too, in lovely cable knits. Dresses are short and sassy and can be worn with opaque tights or leggings.

Which do you think will be your best-selling item this month?
As the nights draw in and temperatures plummet, we are hoping that our gorgeous coatigans and short jackets will be popular, as well as some wonderful new evening wear from America.

What are your three hottest brands/labels in the store?
Karen Cole has been popular for her dresses this season with a marvellous stretch lace dress in blue, and Almost Famous continues to wow us all with their unique pieces. Also, Container DK, a new brand from Denmark, has been a hot ticket this season.

Is there a particular celebritys style you admire and why?
Sarah Jessica Parker because she regularly wears Almost Famous and thats good enough for me !

What would you say is your best buy at the moment?
We have some fantastic handbags from David Jones at 59. Designed in France, they have the handwriting of bags at three times the price and are brilliant.

Is there anything you would recommend for the guys?
We dont do menswear !

If someone was going to buy one key item for this season, what should it be?
A Karen Cole dress. These are so wearable and will take you effortlessly from day to evening. At around the 165 mark, they are flying out.

Is there anyone in Surrey whose style you particularly admire?
No one in particular springs to mind.

In the competitive fashion industry, what do you think are the ingredients for success?
The key to success in this business is to know who your customers are and tailor your buying to them. Keep the stock moving and have new drops of stock every few weeks. Merchandising is key, too, and moving the stock around the shop often helps to keep things looking fresh.

What would be your top tip for people coming to visit your store?
At Blush, we offer a personal styling service and there are always staff on hand to help find something for that special event and give honest and helpful advice. Also, Haslemere is a fun and interesting place to visit and
I can thoroughly recommend Hemingways on the High Street as somewhere to take a break after an exhausting shopping day!
