In Memory of Stephanie McLean
This page is dedicated to the memory of our colleague and friend Steph McLean, who suddenly passed away on 11 July 2013, at the age of 23.
Celebrating the Life and Work of Steph McLean
Steph was born on 30th May 1990, and grew up in Newcastle. She was passionate about writing, and chose to study for a degree in English Literature and History at the University of Liverpool to pursue her aspirations.
In 2012, Steph moved to London, and joined Lenstore on a copywriting internship. She was an outstanding member of our team and a great writer, and quickly progressed to a permanent role as Marketing Executive. She excelled in her role in marketing, writing newsletters and emails to our customers, securing Lenstore coverage in national publications, and building public relations to increase awareness of Lenstore.
Steph was incredibly full of life. She always had a smile on her face, and a positive outlook on everything that surrounded her. She was kind, intelligent, lively, professional: a truly amazing person. We all miss her sorely, and will always remember her fondly at Lenstore. Her many achievements are worth celebrating, and we created this page to highlight a few of them.
Steph always had a flair for writing, which she pursued through her degree and her career at Lenstore. She frequently contributed to the Lenstore Blog, writing about a variety of topics, from London Fashion Week to Lenstore’s latest news.
How to Pick the Perfect Makeup Colours to Enhance Your Eyes
Steph had a long-standing interest in fashion, and shared her passion in a helpful article on eye makeup. She gave readers some advice on how to pick the best makeup for different eye colours, and apply it in a way that accentuates the natural beauty of the eyes.
Lenstore: Our Story So Far
Lenstore celebrated its 5th birthday in June 2013; to mark the occasion, Steph wrote a blog post on Lenstore’s story so far. She recounted our company’s early beginnings, as well as highlighting how we have grown over the years.
The Financial Times Visits Lenstore’s Very Own “Downton Abbey”
In April 2013, the Financial Times paid Lenstore a visit to interview our founder, Mitesh. The interview took place in the marketing department’s stylish portakabin, and inspired Steph to write an article on what we call Lenstore’s “Downton Abbey”.
