From seer-sucker suits to orange
wide-wale skirts, the British clo
thing invasion has finally hit Lincoln.
"The English Girl," owned and
operated by a 1978 UNL business
graduate, opened March 12 in the
basement of the Douglas Three
Theatre building.
The owner, Taushif Hashmi, has
stocked the Lincoln store with more
conservative English clothing lines.
His current stock is exported from
two of his existing clothing stores in
Manchester, Britain's second larg
est city.
With decor ranging from Union
Jacks to posters of Madonna in the
movie "Desperately Seeking Susan,"
Hashmi is attempting to strike a
balance between Lincoln and Lon
don chic.
Transferring his English fashion
savvy to Lincoln presents a few chal
lenges, Hashmi said. But he expects

Lincoln gleaned from four years of
undergraduate school to help.
After only a week in business,
Hashmi already is planning to ex
pand his stock and double his retail
space by expanding into a vacant
adjacent area Hashmi also plans to
open a store in Omaha this summer.
Shoppers at "English Girl" might
be surprised at the variety of fabrics,
ranging from polyester to cotton.
Customers also will have to adjust
to European sizes. An English size
10 corresponds to about a 5 or 7
American junior size, Hashmi said.
Several styles, such as cotton
floral-print jumpers and metallic
suits, are targeted for college-age
women. But some, such as the stan
dard acryllic sweaters and tweed
skirts, should appeal to all age
groups, Hashmi said.
The range of fashions reflects the
British, style, Hashmi said.
"Britain goes from one extreme
to another," he said. "You see very

Some styles Hashmi considers
too radical for Lincoln include hatpin-style
earrings and micro-minis.
Hashmi sells a few jeans, which
are unisex. Skirts dominate the
stock, Hashmi said, because Euro
pean women prefer them to jeans.
Although Hashmi is a five-year
veteran of English retailing, he says
he'll have to adjust to make his
mark in Lincoln. Hashmi predicts it
will take much more advertising
and almost two months of work to
get established here. It only takes a
few weeks to get established in Eng
land, where a store's success depends
on word-of-mouth and foot-traffic,
Hashmi said.
Prices at "English Girl" range
from $24 for a sweater to $70 for a
dress. Through March, Hashmi will

by a simple majority, he said.
Smith said each candidate will be
allowed $64.50 in campaign money,
half of the regular election allocation.
He said the same procedures used in
the regular election will be used in the
run-off election.
