Are You Ready To Shop, Sip And Win?

By Siobhan Taylor | 4th October 2017

The time has come where all of your wildest shopping dreams have come true. If your kind of retail therapy involves all things fashion, food and beauty, then the shopping event that is about to hit town has your name written all over it.

Kicking off this Thursday, October 5, Shop The City event will see retailers from the Queen Street Mall, QueensPlazaThe Myer Centre
and Wintergarden joining forces for the ultimate four-day shopping experience.

As part of the popular Brisbane Fashion Month, Shop The City celebrates our best retailers with fashion parades, drinks, canapés, entertainment, pop-up pamper stations and exclusive retailer specials.

If you’ll be making an appearance trackside this Spring, QueensPlaza will have you immersed in the biggest trends of the season with a curated selection of designer fashion and accessories in their Spring Racing Lounge on Thursday, October 5 from midday until 2pm. You will have the chance to indulge in refreshments from San Pellegrino and canapés from Roll’d while having the hard work of finding an outfit done for you.

But before you do anything, make sure you’re one of the first 25 guests to visit Botanica on Level 1 of Queens Plaza, as you may be lucky enough to receive a double pass to the Caulfield Cup Spring Race Day!

Need a mini-makeover to match your new Spring Racing wardrobe? QueensPlaza’s pop-up beauty bar hosted by Lancôme and Shu Uemura, will have you covered from 10am until 7pm, Thursday, October 5.

Now you’ve got spring racing sorted, slip on over to The Myer Centre’s Sofi Spritz pop-up bar from 5pm on Thursday, October 5, to sip on the latest cocktail craze – a white peach & ginger Sofi Spritz cocktail. Inspired by Italian-style aperitivo’s, the Sofi Spritz cocktail is an all-Australian wine cocktail balanced with sparkling water and citrus and herb extracts – perfect to wet one’s whistle after shopping up a storm.

Wander on down to 170 Queen Street where there will be giveaways all day long. With free coffee at Jimmy Rods from 10am - 11am, product demo’s, makeovers, food tastings and goodie bags at Daiso and limited edition tote bags when you spend over $100 at Crumpler. Plus, make any purchase at Alannah Hill, Daiso, Crumpler, H&M, Jan Logan, Jimmy Rod’s or Uniqlo between 10am-2pm to receive a complimentary tub of Fluffe fairy floss. Score!

Now suitably refreshed, kick back and watch as the latest trends storm the runway at the Queen Street Mall Fashion Parade presented by Brisbane Fashion Month and the Wintergarden.

There’ll even be Shop The City discounted parking rates so long as you book online here or here and use the code SHOPTHECITY. So now you have no excuse not to get along and revel in all of the fashion and frivolity!
