A new shopping experience arrives in Claremont on Wednesday 17 February 2021, with the opening of Lemon Tree pop-up; pre-loved clothing proudly brought to you by Anglicare WA and the Town of Claremont. Lemon Tree pop-up is a unique offering for the area and encourages more sustainable solutions to buying in 2021.
Located at the rear of 18 Bay View Terrace with access through Maude Jackson Lane Walt Drabble Lane, the store showcases a large selection of high quality pre-loved clothing and shoes for men, women and children. Labels on offer include Gucci, Chanel, Camila, Gorman and Zimmerman. The store is also a drop-off donation point for quality clothing, shoes and bags from community members.
All proceeds from Lemon-Tree pop-up go towards Anglicare WA’s Young Hearts Child Counselling Service. The Young Hearts program is a domestic violence counselling service for children, dedicated to breaking the cycle of family and domestic violence.
As well as securing designer pieces without the design price tag, shoppers will also be helping the environment by diverting clothing from landfill.
Anglicare WA CEO Mark Glasson welcomed the collaboration with the Town of Claremont, saying it will make a vital difference – in a range of ways.
“The Lemon Tree pop-up will provide an opportunity for people, who may be on a tighter budget since COVID, to access high-quality fashion items for work and events,” said Mr Glasson.
“Most importantly, every time a shopper makes a purchase at the Lemon Tree pop-up, they will be helping support children traumatised by family and domestic violence through our Young Hearts program. Young Hearts receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of the community to continue running.”
Mayor Jock Barker said Lemon Tree pop-up would provide a sustainable shopping solution for residents and visitors to Claremont over the next 6 months.
“Sustainability is a core focus for the Town and we work closely with many organisations to ensure we are providing options to make sustainable choices in our day to day lives” Mayor Barker said.
“Lemon Tree Pop-up is a great addition to the Claremont shopping experience and I am sure the community will enjoy being able to access some fantastic clothing as well as helping the environment and the Young Hearts program”
“We are pleased to be able to partner with Anglicare WA on such a unique project.”
The pop-up store will be open from Wednesday 17 February, 2021, with opening hours of 10am until 5pm, Wednesday to Saturdays, for the next 6-months, and will also host a number of events and workshops during this time.
