We don’t know about you, but we have been eagerly awaiting news of an epic new sale in order for us to flex our pin-typing fingers and our paywave-flinging wrists. Basically, we’re in need of a little retail therapy.

When we heard that our northern friends up at Sunshine Plaza were hosting a huge one-day AW18 sale, we basically flipped. With live music, giveaways, free goodies (both edible and not), workshops, personal styling and insanely good deals on new season threads, it’s the perfect excuse to make your way north and indulge in a little shopping.


Keep your eyes open for the Style Squad which will be in action around the centre.

With everything fashion, footwear, beauty, accessories and jewellery, you’re sure to spot a few things you didn’t know you needed. Each retailer has put up a special, limited offer for the day, with everything from wallet-friendly discounts to free gifts on offer! With over 50 specials on offer from major retailers including R.M. Williams, Seed, Lorna Jane, Country Road, Veronika Maine, Kikki.K, Pandora, Mimco and Pure Indulgence, now is your time to stock up for Mother’s Day and get her everything on her wish list. Or, if you’re feeling like you need to #treatyourself, you can get everything on your wishlist!

If the nippy weather has you rethinking your wardrobe, why not nab a free styling session with one of Brisbane’s best? Book in early for a free 30-minute personal styling session and a 30-minute personalised shopping experience with Style’s very own Kathryn Edmonds, worth $150 per session. With almost a decade of fashion design and styling expertise under her belt as well as an eye for new trends and flattering fits, she’ll walk you through how to dress for your shape and help you unearth your everyday style personality. Sessions are super limited so email [email protected] to reserve your space.


Enjoy a free 30-minute styling session with Kathryn Edmonds! Email [email protected] to book your session.

Not your thing? There is also a free hour-long macramé workshop teaching the basics of weaving so you can make your own to take home! Learn the art of macramé from local artist and owner of Creative Bowerbird, Jodie Townsend, in an interactive 1-hour workshop that will take you from weaving novice to macramé master.

There will also be prizes up for grabs on the day with the ultimate one being a $1000 Sunshine Plaza Gift Card. Simply snap an Insta pic and tag @SunshinePlaza official for your chance to win.

Valid only on Saturday, May 5, extend your road-trip into a weekend-long shopping extravaganza. Be sure to pack a few tote bags to fit all your purchases, as there is no better opportunity to stock up on summer dresses for Europe in the upcoming June/July holidays… That’s happening, right?

Whether you choose to explore the sale with your girl squad, treat your mum to an early Mother’s Day treat or just ride solo, you’re bound to find something special just for you. Plus, follow it up with a dip in the ocean and you’ve got yourself an itinerary for the ultimate day on the coast!
