About Neon Leo & Pre-loved
Neon Leo is a local rental and preloved fashion store located at 7 Market Row, Saffron Walden. Their mission is to help women elevate their style through sustainable fashion choices. When you enter their store, you'll be greeted with a beautiful selection of trendy clothing (from daily basics to exceptional event wear) sequins, glitter balls, amazing art and much more.
Customers can rent clothing (from Rixo, Queens Of Archive, Kitri, Sleeper, etc.) for a one-off event or sign up for an ongoing monthly membership. Unlike other rental platforms, Neon Leo is starting as an Essex and Cambridgeshire communal wardrobe where customers can try on items at their Saffron Walden store before renting them. Aside from renting clothes, Mandy and Abi also provide an on-trend curated edit of preloved clothing, shoes, and accessories in inclusive sizes (4-22) available for purchase. They also offer one-to-one styling advice and support in a welcoming and positive environment. Visiting the store is something any fashion lover will want to experience.
The idea for Neon Leo came about in the summer of 2022, created and founded by Mandy Weetch and Abi North. It was born out of their longing and need for local, sustainable fashion rentals and exceptional preloved clothing. After launching in March 2023 to a roaring success, the need for a physical shop became apparent, and after an extensive search, Neon Leo at No 7 Market Row was born.
"We must build a community that encourages female empowerment through slow fashion. But, more importantly, Neon Leo is also about driving people to make sustainable fashion choices. Buying an outfit for a party or wedding that you only wear once generates carbon emissions equal to driving to Manchester and back in a diesel car. Fast fashion can not continue as it is, and we are passionate about being part of the change! We want people to realise that you can be just as fabulous shopping slow and sustainably. We're encouraging women to invest in the idea that you can borrow, buy and share fabulous clothes at an affordable price.”
Mandy and Abi have created a place where fashion is fun. It's a safe space for women of all shapes and sizes, where they can feel welcomed and find incredible treasures, from Gucci belts and Me & Em wardrobe staples to Ganni vests, Christian Louboutin heels or beautiful jewellery.
Visiting Neon Leo is like going out with your BFFs for sparkles and champers. You’ll have the time of your life! The environment is so welcoming and enticing so be sure to visit them soon. Just don't expect to leave empty-handed!
Neon Leo stock a range of brands to rent, from amazing pre-loved high-street pieces to high-end independent designers, including Queens of Archive, Sleeper, Gianni, Rixo and Kitri. Rentals start from £25 for a weekend.
Neon Leo is here to elevate your closet and bring you fabulous pre-loved fashion to rent or buy.
For pre-loved items, we offer a percentage (30%) of the sale to the pre-loved owner. We will assess each item and then place a pre-loved value on the item. It will then go for sale in our shop. We will itemise all items we take from you and then at the end of each month we will pay you the monies owed for whatever has sold. If after 6 months an item has not sold we will return the item(s) to you. To get in touch with us about selling your pre-loved items please email email@example.com
