AN exclusive new women's boutique in Lowestoft has come on board to support The Journal's Carnival Queen contest.
di-lusso, in London Road South, are holding a wine and cheese evening tonight to mark the official launch of their shop and to celebrate their move to the town. They are giving away £300 of vouchers for the winning girl to spend on their range of designer wear, which includes clothing and accessories.
The eclectic range from day to evening wear offers individuality and is sourced from across Europe, including Caractere in Italy, Bandolera in Holland, and swimwear from Brazil.
Many of the pieces are one-offs and only sold through their outlet, so the chosen girl can be assured of having a unique outfit for any occasion.

Judges will shortlist 20 girls from the entry forms we receive based on the answers given to seven questions included in the coupon on this page.
The contest, which is taking place at the Marina Theatre, in Lowestoft, on Friday, June 27, is a personality competition and judges will be looking for the qualities they think would best serve Lowestoft.
Those picked will then be treated to a free sitting at Picture Studios, in London Road North, with their pictures featured in The Journal the week before the competition.
On the evening each girl will be asked to bring an evening gown of their choice to wear and will be designated a backstage dressing room, while their make-up will be taken care of by Clinique representatives Tracey Waterer and Karen Taylor, who work at the Boots store, in Lowestoft. All contestants will also receive a goodie bag, courtesy of Clinique.
The evening, compered by Mike Deal, will include entertainment provided by singer Kerry Kennedy.
Tickets at £5 are on sale for the event at the Marina box office or telephone 01502 533200.
Profits from the evening will be donated to the James Paget Palliative Care Unit.
