TOWIE stunner opens her Southend clothes shop
3:41pm Sunday 13th October 2013 in Echo News
HUNDREDS of people turned out to watch The Only Way Is Essex stunner Lucy Mecklenburgh launch her new clothing store in Southend.
Some devoted fans of Lucy’s and the ITV2 show had queued behind barriers since 8.30am to see their idol open Lucy’s Boutique on the ground floor of the Victoria Centre in the High Street. Southend’s first “TOWIE shop”.
She kept her fans, onlookers and press photographers waiting 40 minutes and even changed her dress from red number, to a grey one, and finally to a black fringed dress for photos, before disappearing inside to change into a red jumpsuit.
Inside she greeted fans, signed autographs and posed for photos.
Lucy, 22, who has just returned to the UK after filming The Only Way Is Essex in Las Vegas, is no stranger to Southend having studied business accounting and sociology at South Essex College when she was 16.
