For Valentine's Day we launched a competition asking our fans on social media to send us their Coco Notes - declarations of love, thoughts of lust, naughty musings - for us to adorn our iconic window with.
Passers by also came into store to enter the competition or stopped and read our amazing array of notes. We had some sensational entries - some deeply touching, some wonderfully erotic. All were entering for the chance to win £100 worth of Coco de Mer delight. On 14th February we chose a worthy winner and we thought we'd do a reveal:

The Coco de Mer Monmouth Street store has undergone a makeover. The newly polished space remains true to its aesthetic, but with glorious new story areas and features created. New hot pink and gold colourways have been incorporated with the addition of pendant lights and antiquity sourced from vintage fairs and markets. Our recently unveiled collection of luxuriant, hand poured candles illuminate the new 'Aroma Wall', framed with Hollywood-style bulb lights.
A new bondage area has been created interspersed with covetable artwork, and we have a newly curated Museum area that is dedicated to rare magazine issues and literature, art, toys and eccentric oddities. Whips, paddles and other play props hang on new displays created with antlers, dipped in gold.
Our fresh new look reaffirms our status as the destination for fashionable folk who crave a little decadent erotica.
Our Christmas window is already causing passers by to stop and stare and this time we have created an abundant banquet theme. Our models, wearing delectable creations by Felice Art Couture, Sian Hoffman and Bordelle, frolic on top of our table setting. New chandeliers are strewn with fairy lights, lingerie and spangled whips, and our 'table' boasts candelabras, golden crockery and ruby red glassware.
Each place setting displays our finest, most covetable gifts for the upcoming festivities. Take a trip down Monmouth Street to see us in all our glory.

This week, the Coco de Mer team welcomed lingerie blogger Caro as she made her first visit to the Covent Garden boutique.
Creator of The Lingerie Lesbian, New York based Caro is hailed as one of the best lingerie bloggers today, despite her site being only a year old.
Caro's busy schedule keeps her days filled with exciting lingerie adventures, and with a British journey planned, the team were delighted to learn she had made time for her very first Coco de Mer experience.
Spanking expert and Salon teacher Allison England gave Caro a tour of the boutique. Sale sections, luxury and erotic lingerie, silk sleepwear, bedroom arts, leather bondage, cutlery, books and more were all shown to Caro. Quite an expert herself, she was familiar with the majority of the stocked lingerie brands, yet discovered a few exciting extras to consider for future projects.
A huge thank you to Caro for visiting us, we hope you enjoyed your visit, and you're welcome back any time!
