Always adding sparkle to Christmas, acclaimed North West jeweller, Banks Lyon, hosted a festive ‘Winter Ball’ at The Castle Green Hotel in Kendal on Saturday evening. Staged amongst a backdrop of twinkly lights and seasonal frosted decor, it was a stylish affair with gorgeous gowns, gems and party heels setting the scene to celebrate the jeweller’s 35th year in business.
Founder, Rodney Banks Lyon said, “we wanted to mark this special anniversary, spending time with the many friends from our local business community who have kindly supported our journey over the years.”
The Banks Lyon story is one of deep-rooted retail heritage with the Church Street, Lancaster shoe shop dating back to 1885. However, for descendant and native Lancastrian, Rodney Banks Lyon, the shoe business held little appeal. In his early twenties, Rodney was already shaping a vision to open a premier North West jewellery store. A driven young man, Rodney set about gaining first-hand knowledge and management experience in the watch and jewellery industry. In 1985 he and wife Jasmin, realised their dream, opening Banks Lyon, Lancaster.
Treating customers to a boutique shopping experience in the historic City of Lancaster, Banks Lyon offer an extensive range of luxury watches, diamonds and jewellery. The company ethos to share expert knowledge combined with warm and friendly customer service has attracted a loyal and discerning clientele over the years.
In 2017, proud to play their part in the Banks Lyon expansion story, daughter Maxine and husband Alexander, opened a second retail outlet in Kendal. The couple draw on a wealth of marketing and retail expertise to bring the flagship store experience to the heart of the Lake District.
Rodney summed up the spirit of the evening, commenting, “as we celebrate this special company milestone and a treasure trove of memories along the way, it seems fitting that we share the gift of ‘time’ whenever we match a customer to their perfect timepiece!”
Those in attendance enjoyed the chance to win a stunning diamond necklace, before sitting down to a delicious 3-course meal followed by live entertainment from ‘The Talent’ to dance the night away.
Banks Lyon would like to wish their friends, family, business partners and customers, past, present and future a very happy festive season.
