Scottish singing sensation Lulu wows hundreds of women on visit to Norwich store
Scottish singer Lulu spoke of her affection for Norwich and praised Canaries' manager Paul Lambert before wowing hundreds of women with her beauty range at a city store.
The Glasgow-born singer, famed for her 1964 hit Shout, was in Norwich to talk about her range of skin and hair care products – Time Bomb Skincare, Bombshell Body Care, Operation Glam Hair Care and her fragrance, Time.
Lulu, born Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie, introduced the range to more than 600 women at an event held to celebrate the first birthday of the beauty hall at Jarrold's on London Street.
Speaking before the sell-out event, Lulu said she was pleased to be back in Norwich. She said: 'I've been to Norwich a lot. You never really see much when you're touring but it (Norwich) couldn't look more gorgeous.'
Lulu, who has in the past performed at the Theatre Royal, has also appeared at the UEA on tour with Jools Holland in 2007 and supported Elton John at Carrow Road in 2005.

The TV personality and businesswoman, who was made an OBE in 2000, said she initially launched her own beauty range out of frustration.
She said: 'In every interview I would always be asked about my secrets to looking good – which was immensely flattering but I was there to talk about music. Eventually I had a eureka moment and thought that perhaps I should share my hard won knowledge – after all it comes from many years of learning from some of the best beauty and health experts in the world. I have always considered looking and feeling my best part of my business – I plan to make music till I drop, so it was important to me to look as good as I could.'
