    I hope she fails miserably and goes bankrupt and is forced to do a sex tape to get some money. Please.

    The fact that she'd spent the best part of £250k on starting up a business when she'd failed to even secure a property is absolutely disgraceful.

    Really goes to show that just because you've earned a lot of money, it doesn't make you an entrepreneur. She literally has NO business sense whatsoever.

    Give me 20k and I'm pretty confident I could make successful business.

    She knew nothing about her target audience, nothing about her competition and walked out after hearing people saying they wouldn't buy from her shop because it was linked to her name.

    I'm sorry but Lily Allen is no more a businesswoman than I am God.

    To answer the question, no it won't fail; but not because Lily Allen is as inept a business woman as she is a singer, it will succeed because she has hired people to do the work for her - Mary Portas is a genius. So, yes it will succeed, but not because Lily Allen's got anything to do with it.
    You've just said everything I came in here to say, really.

    Being rich doesn't automatically create a strong business acumen. It just doesn't. I'd put money on the fact that if she didn't have accomplished business professionals helping her start everything up, she'd go under before her ship even reached sea.

    And I dislike her face.

    I think she'll just lose interest in it after a few months.

    The woman has just suffered from two misscarriages. I think she's entitled to some happiness! I hope it goes well for her though I don't think her sister's involvement has really helped...

    Sorry but I completely agree... she quite clearly did not have a clue
