Customer Testimonials

Here is what some of our customers have to say about Chic Happens.


Chic Happens is not just a business selling clothes. It's an opportunity for women of all shapes and sizes to be styled and feel confident again. The online community linked with the business is a safe space where women from all across the UK and other parts of the world can support each other and often lift each other up by giving compliments and suggestions for styling and much more than that. Claire Robinson has helped so many women be able to be the best version of themselves by providing beautiful clothes that the high street will never be able to match. She has fostered the community spirit and made such a difference. Thank you Claire and Chic Happens”. Paula, Wigan


“In a world that’s unfortunately driven with images and clothes made for teenagers it’s a breath of fresh air to find a tribe of women lead by Claire and her team, that not only buy stylish clothes for real women, with real bodies - but who have also created the most supportive online community. If you’re lucky enough to be a chicanista you will have, at some point, been showered with compliments on your outfit, had a question answered, been given a recommendation, supported a charitable cause, attended a fun event or generally just been lifted up by the members of the group if your struggling on a bad day. Chic happens is more than just a store it’s a positive, stylish, supportive, loving, funny and safe place for women from all

Walks of life”. Nikki, Arizona, USA.


“I have not been to the shop but I have purchased from this business online. Friendly and helpful staff, and prices are very competitive. There is also a Facebook group where Claire and her team show the members the latest products that you can purchase from the shop or online. It’s a very friendly group and non judgemental”. Anne-Marie, Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire.


“Where to begin? The Facebook group is an amazing place. Thoughtful, inspirational members with Claire and her team at the helm. From Tuesday style drop to giveaways, for members and various charitable events, Team Chic are all a blessing that keep on giving to everyone with the utmost care and thoughtfulness.  And of course, the quality and value of the clothing etc is fabulous. I am a regular online customer and love all that I purchase”. Sandra, Ebbw Vale, Wales.


“I think you’ve made Chorley a warmer, friendlier and brighter place”. Kirstie, Chorley.


“We’ve laughed, we cried (usually with laughter) & we have been styled into colours and styles that have uplifted us through covid and beyond. Chic Happens is a magical business, full of fun & fashion and led by Claire who is dedicated to all things Chic”. Carla, Manchester.


“Chic Happens is a unique and special business that goes beyond shopping and provides a brilliant customer service experience with love, laughter and life coaching along the way”. Rosalind, Lichfield, Staffordshire.


“I have found my tribe. Dresses that I can wear with confidence that I'm looking and feel good all the time. No longer do I have to go from store to store searching for something that seems to be made with me in mind. Chic Happens is my tribe. Lynda, Caterham, Surrey.


“We all need a Chic Happens and a Claire Robinson. Even if we think we don't we do .To make the most of what we already have. To make the most of making small changes or larger ones if we want. Add a colour. Wear the outfit for yourself not for a function or for someone else. Style it with confidence. Never have the pit in stomach feeling of clothes shopping. And along with all of this know that even on a bad day you have the added confidence of knowing you look good. And a family of chiccanistas behind you who have your back”. Alison, Lancaster.
