On Saturday 22nd October 2016, the Lush Bournemouth store opened its doors to customers again following a six-month extensive restoration project. The new shop showcases all that is innovative and inspiring about Lush.
The store is only the 4th shop in the world (after London Oxford Street, Manchester and Hong Kong) to offer customers the new full range of Emotional Brilliance make-up with over 90 pieces!
All fit out materials in Lush Bournemouth are rated under a RICS SKA system for sustainable fit outs. Every effort has been made throughout the design and build process to eliminate wastage and recycle materials where possible. Materials from the previous store fit out have been reused where possible or sent to the Lush Green Hub for recycling.
A new energy efficient lighting scheme, by Michael Grubb Studio, also provides the absolute highest quality of colour rendition to enhance the shopping experience and handmade products created by Lush.
