Up Late with Marie Claire and James St

27 Mar

Timed to coincide with the launch of Marie Claire’s 200th edition issue, the Marie Claire James Street ‘Up Late’ event will see a myriad of shoppers descend upon James Street to take advantage of an array of special offers from the likes of Mecca Cosmetica, Endota, St Barts, Calexico and more… Think discounts, gifts with purchase, and designer meet-and-greets. Basically, one big stylish fête!

Not only are there over 70 fantastic special offers for you to access on the night, but Editor and Publisher Jackie Frank and her team will be in stores and walking the street, dishing out style advice and meeting shoppers. There’ll also be a special marie claire lounge opposite Harveys where you can nab a great goody bag, (crammed with an amazing array of products) and maybe a slice of their 200th birthday cake?

And here’s something even sweeter than cake… not only are stores offering delightful discounts and gifts with purchase, they’re also transforming their spaces, and hosting store parties (think champagne, cupcakes and macaroons).

Oh and did I mention some of Australia’s best designers will be there too? Heidi Middleton of sass and bide, Easton Pearson’s Pamela Easton and Lydia Pearson, Camilla Franks of Camilla, the boys from KSUBI and Bec Manning of Rebecca Manning, are just a few of the designers that will be in their stores on the evening.

And if that’s not enough… cru bar + cellar will be transformed into the Louis Roederer champagne bar, where you can take five, and experiences the “Artistry of Champagne”. Plus if you’re feeling a little peckish while you shop, there will be tantalizing street food options, like Mexican at Press, dumplings, steamed buns filled with pork belly, mushrooms and Middle Eastern pita pockets, dotted throughout the street. YUMMMMYYY!

I’ll be there, scoping out the new Mecca Cosmetica store and buying up big, saying HELLO! to 25% off all SOOT. garments, checking out the beautiful designer goods at Frockshop (they will have 20% off on the night), trying on gorgeous dresses at Jules & Roc (20% off store wide, including labels such as Shakuhachi, Manning Cartell and Shona Joy ), checking out the trendy shoes on offer at Zomp (enjoy 15% off store wide), having a squiz inside the new Ksubi store, and grabbing some dumplings and steamed pork buns from the street stalls.

There will be a few great beauty deals on for the one night only. At Endota Spa, book in for an hour treatment with dermalogica products, and take home one of their exfoliation duo packs. It’s filled with products that will give you the most polished skin possible.

Mecca Cosmetica are offering complimentary Smokey Eye Lessons to help you to master this timeless trend. Mecca’s Makeup Artist will teach you the secrets to creating the perfect smokey eye in just a few simple steps. Bookings are essential and subject to availability. Please contact the store on 07 3852 6960 to reserve your appointment.

So come and stay up late at the Marie Claire James Street ‘Up Late’ street party this Thursday March 29, from 5pm on James Street, Fortitude Valley Brisbane. The event is free to attend. Head to www.jamesst.com.au for more info.

Who is coming along? Let me know, it would be great to go shopping with you.
