About Tamarisk


Hi I’m Emma,

Nearly 15 years ago, I opened my little shop in the seaside town of Deal. Before that, I'd had a somewhat chequered career as an actor, singer, (definitely not a dancer), and latterly a teacher and a coach. After the birth of my two precious daughters, I retrained as a stylist, so I could be my own boss. I immediately noticed a real need for fun, flattering, colourful clothes that didn't break the bank, and so tamarisk was born!
Fast forward 14 years and I'm still here, happily bucking the trend and encouraging locals and visitors alike to shop independent. And now Tamarisk is online! You’ll find a carefully-curated collection of flattering, colourful and unusual pieces, chosen to be affordable and accessible, whatever your age. 
When I'm not at Tamarisk towers, I love reading, theatre, learning and creating new things. I'm also a big politics nerd! I'm grateful for the support of my amazing team, who share my vision and help make Tamarisk what it is today.
I still use my stylist skills by holding regular styling workshops in-store and online. We're excited to have you as part of the Tamarisk community, and we look forward to seeing you in our store or online. Enjoy!
Lots of Love,
