Mero Retro Dalston 6th Birthday SALE & Party for Sanju

Please come and join us on Saturday 31st July as we mark Mero Retro Dalston's 6th and final* Birthday and celebrate the life of our beloved and much-missed founder, Sanju Tamang who passed away in March 2020.

From 1-7.30pm we'll be having a SALE with 20% OFF everything in store and free drinks (while they last!). At 7.30pm there'll be a charity auction of some of our prize pieces - including some of our kimono and handmade jewellery. The proceeds from the auction will go to Covid-19 relief in Nepal and the NHS Charities supported by Sanju’s Rainbow Kiss T-shirt initiative. Then we're going to start the party in earnest inside and outside the shop before moving round the corner to our friends Kaffa Coffee in Gillett Square to carry on dancing into the night.
A classic Sanju welcome, 2015
Sanju asked that, after her passing, we have a party in her honour at which no one should wear black, only their most colourful clothes. She wanted us to to dance, laugh and remember her with love and joy in our hearts.

Don't worry if you can't make the Sale or party: items on meroretro.com will also be on sale over our Birthday weekend (look out for the discount code on our Instagram and Facebook pages). We'll be taking a short break over the first half of August and we'll have another Sale prior to closing and a BIG party when we do!
❤️💃🏽🎉✨

*We’re currently planning to close Mero Retro Dalston later this year (the exact date has yet to be set) and to continue trading online only after that. If you'd like to know more about why we're closing and Mero Retro's future please read Ro's 'Ends & Beginnings' post 🙏🏽

The end of an era approaches. After months of deliberation, I've taken the difficult decision to close Mero Retro Dalston - most likely in the coming Autumn Winter season - and take the business online only.

Vintage Sizing and Measurements

Vintage sizing and modern sizing can be very different. Because of this, we provide detailed measurements of all vintage clothing to help you determine whether or not a garment will fit correctly. An assessment of the estimated modern size will be noted, as well as any sizes on the tag, but please refer to measurements to best determine fit.

A good way to determine fit:

* Find a similar item in your wardrobe.
* Measure it according to our measurement guidelines.
* Compare your measurements to those of the vintage item you are interested in.
* You're done. If it's a good fit, make it yours!

We do occasionally pin clothing to fit our models, so please read all measurements carefully. We do not accept returns for vintage merchandise that does not fit. If you have any questions about our sizing/measurements, please contact us at info@meroretro.com.

All bust, waist, and hip measurements are taken straight across while garment is laid flat. Please double bust, waist, and hip measurements.
