Title: Alila.ie
Company Pitch

Do you worry about shopping online because you’re afraid it won’t fit/arrive on time/look different to how it did online? Are you sick of the high street because you might arrive to a wedding or heaven forbid – your debs – in the same dress as someone else?? Do you find yourself sick of looking through the same shops time and again? Alila.ie is the answer to your problems. Having had a boutique on Drury Street in the heart of Dublin for 5 years Alila.ie knows what customers are looking for. When we moved all business online we promised to maintain the excellent level of customer service, the same quality merchandise, and continue to provide exclusive labels you won’t find easily elsewhere – locally or online.

Alila’s mission has always been to make ladies feel and look fabulous. This is why we entered the IEDR OPTIMISE Fund 2016. Winning this would give Alila greater access to you, help you discover that you don’t have to buy from foreign online boutiques to get that something special and different, that nobody else will have. Alila is proud to be an online Irish boutique stocking stunning dresses, shoes & jewellery from all over the world, simultaneously helping the Irish economy. We like to think of ourselves as an online boutique with a personal touch – always there to answer any style dilemmas! Our goal with the help of Optimise is to grow our online presence, dress even more fabulous ladies in stunning clothing, and build up the business leading to job creation as we grow.

Alila needs your votes so please vote, share, spread the word and help us facilitate the fashion needs of all the ladies of Ireland!
