Hello and welcome to Katie and May. Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you find something that you love.
Katie and May is a clothing and lifestyle boutique based in the Headingley area of Leeds. We opened in April 2017 and we have loved our time in the shop so far.
My name is Catherine Hynd and I own Katie and May, however I could not run the business without my fantastic team:-
The Girls – Becca, Laura and Bethany
Becca has been with us from day one and is a superstar. Those of you who are local customers will know Becca well and I am sure you will all agree how fantastic she is. Katie and May would be lost without her.
Laura has also been with us from the beginning and does a few shifts inbetween her full time job and her busy social life. Laura is really fun and enthusiastic. She worked in fashion in Canada and is really good at helping me merchandise the shop.
Bethany is the newest member of our team and an illustration student. In addition to helping in the shop, Bethany has helped me with some editing of the website which has been great.
My husband Gary, daughter Katie and dog Dougie
They are such important members of the team. Dougie who drives me crazy but gives me time to think when we are walking. My lovely husband Gary who never stops supporting and believing in me and my beautiful daughter Katie who made this all possible by being such a legend. (Although it would be great if she would sleep a bit more).
My lovely friends and family
I also have to include in our team my wonderful friends and family who have supported the shop every step of the way. In particular my gorgeous Mum who gave me my love of fashion and without her help we could never have opened.
I am often asked where the name of the shop came from. When I started thinking about names, it became an obvious choice to name it after my two late grandmas, Katie and May, two of my favourite ladies in the world.
The Shop and our customers
Our ethos at Katie and May is that we want to sell lovely quality products at prices to suit every budget. We want there to be something for everyone at Katie and May and we want everyone to feel welcome in our shop whether you are coming on a full shopping spree or just for a browse.
