Pop-Up Garden Event

St George’s Shopping Centre will host an exclusive pop-up style garden event this Easter to showcase its glamorous seasonable products, from top fashion to home essentials and beauty products.

On Saturday 20th April, St George’s Shopping Centre, in Preston, will be exhibiting a wide selection of their retailer’s gorgeous spring fashion items, such as Quiz, River Island, Miss Selfridge and many more. There will even be sampling stations from Superdrug and The Body Shop, giving shoppers the chance to try brand spanking new beauty and fashion products.

And if that’s not enough…there will even be a professional stylist and makeup artist on hand who will be providing mini-makeovers and top styling tips. For one day only, shoppers can be completely pampered by our beauty experts and leave the Centre feeling glammed-up and refreshed, all completely free of charge.

Plus, wonderful charities, St Catherine’s Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support, will be setting up manicure stations for shoppers to visit in exchange for making a small donation. The Style Garden will be open from 11am until 4pm for shoppers to drop in at their leisure.

Andrew Stringer, Centre Manager at St George’s Shopping, commented: “We can’t wait to open the gates to our style garden and showcase the fantastic offers we have at St George’s. It gives us a chance to show off our fantastic retailers’ latest ranges and brings together a wonderful sense of community!”
