Lavender Moon, the popular independent lifestyle store, is set to join the ranks of KINGLAND at the Dolphin Poole.

The boho country boutique, which offers a range of country and western-inspired clothing including flares, Aztec jackets and cowboy hats along with jewellery, crystals and gifts, first opened in December 2022 in its former base in Old Town Poole.

Having built up a loyal customer base, Owner Bethany Holland made the decision to move to Poole’s busy independent-focused area.

Bethany said: “KINGLAND is the home of independent retailers in Poole, so it felt natural bringing Lavender Moon into the hub. Being located in the centre of town means my customers can pop in more regularly and visit Lavender Moon while shopping with other small businesses, too.

“The Dolphin Poole team has been instrumental in supporting my business to make the most of the opportunity to move into KINGLAND. Mark Northey from Boiler Room Records is a very good friend, and he has welcomed me into the wonderful community, too.”

KINGLAND has provided opportunity for ambitious, independent retailers since 2020.

One of the original KINGLAND success stories, Grounded Coffee, expanded into the next-door unit in January this year, enabling the team to open a new roastery and increase the cafe’s seating provision.

John Grinnell, centre manager of The Dolphin Poole, added: “It is brilliant to welcome Lavender Moon to KINGLAND. Bethany’s business has proven immensely popular in Poole, and we know that customers will be delighted to see the new shop open among a community of local retailers.

“The continued success of the businesses trading on KINGLAND comes as a result of Legal & General’s vision and strategy to reimagine traditional retail. At The Dolphin Poole we are committed to supporting local businesses and entrepreneurs, providing them with the space, community, and opportunity to thrive.”

Lavender Moon is joining a diverse range of businesses for shoppers to explore on KINGLAND, including Titanium Flower, Boiler Room Records, Wild Roots, and Restored Retro.
