Married for over 35 years to Stephen with three children and a new addition to the Albrecht family, a beautiful granddaughter.

Certified and accredited as a professional stylist for over 18 years, I offer down-to earth ‘honest girlfriend’ advice, and take real pride in empowering women to feel good about themselves and wear colour with confidence.

 Hi, I'm Jacqui and I am delighted to introduce myself as the manager of So You!

 Originally from The Highlands of Scotland I emigrated with my family in 2004 but in more recent times settled in Pegasus and absolutely love North Canterbury!

My ten years of fashion background is predominantly in styling. I strive to build a wardrobe based on honesty, longevity, empowerment and style through well considered pieces.

I look forward to welcoming you in store soon x

Hi I’m Leanne!

I have lived in North Canterbury for 23 years, married to Allan and have three teenage sons.

A qualified hairdresser, and have owned my own business, however I have always had a passion for fashion and styling.

I so look forward to meeting you and helping you discover, embrace and enhance your own personal style. x

Sue - Fashion Assistant 

Hi, I'm Sue! As a widow, a loving parent to two amazing adult children, and a doting grandparent to my first grandchild, family holds a special place in my heart. 

Drawing from 28 years of co-owning and operating a successful business with my late husband, I am now eagerly seeking to contribute to and grow with 'So You', especially given its alignment with my passion for the ever-evolving world of fashion. 

Joining this team represents not only a new chapter for me but also an exciting opportunity to apply my skills and experiences in a fresh environment. 

I am genuinely looking forward to meeting you all and working with this team of amazing, dedicated ladies. x
