More so than most, we Queenslanders eagerly await the arrival of spring/summer fashion, beauty and homewares into stores. Come the sudden warmth of September, everything we own is suddenly ridiculously unsuitable or outdated and it becomes an urgent priority to refresh our wardrobe (and be able to start comfortably rocking it all before the rest of the country, heh heh heh).
Well, we’ve got some good news for you, and then some even better news. Not only has the first drop of gorgeous spring/summer styles hit the shops (and holla to that, it’s bloody hot already), but the legends at one of our fave shopping destinations, Maroochydore’s Sunshine Plaza, are celebrating with a glorious, two-day sale event of more than 50 exclusive offers and experiences, plus a heap of fun activations and giveaways. Hell. Yes.
Hear us out on why we're so excited... there will be legit savings across the whole weekend on heaps of fashion, beauty and homeware retailers—and no, we aren’t just talking last season’s woolly jumpers–but actual, new-season spring arrivals–hallelujah. But the event gets even better: make sure you nail this summer’s trends by booking a FREE personalised styling session and shopping experience with the uber-chic (and uber-lovely) stylist Kathryn Edmonds, as well as fashion workshops hosted by Kathryn and celeb radio duo Those Two Girls. Hot tip: spaces are limited across the weekend, so jump on these quickly (click here to book) to fill your pretty heads with fashion know-how.
If makeup’s more your jam, head to Sunshine Plaza's Beauty Hub to enjoy mini-treatments from beauty mega-brands Jurlique, Napoleon Perdis, Lancome and Deciem, along with a free sweet treat.
Naturally, there’ll be giveaways across the weekend too: spend $150 in one go and you’ll receive a free Turkish cotton beach towel (perfect for chilling at the Sunny Coast’s magnificent beaches after a hard day’s shopping… how convenient…). And then there’s the selfie station: snap a selfie or even a pic of your sale haul and tag @SunshinePlazaOfficial and go in the draw to win a killer new-season fashion prize pack worth over $1000 (trust us, you want to win this one!).
Then, when you need to take a load off, put down your bags at Chill Central and enjoy some live acoustic tunes on the Riverwalk. We can’t think of a better excuse to round up the squad and make a weekend of it! Go on, treat yo'self. You deserve it.
