New Mr Price Stores

Mr Price are relaunching their stores in an exciting new look and layout. Yesterday I had the opportunity to work as a stylista at the opening of the Canal Walk branch. There were great instore offers and prizes up for grabs, with personal stylists on the floor to help customers put tailor made trendy looks together. The new Mr Price smartphone app is also a new addition, available from the App Store and Google Play, allowing customers to shop online, view the latest instore arrivals, view lookbooks and put trending looks together.

It’s always great to work with the upbeat Mr Price team and see the extra mile they go for their customers. Check out the Canal Walk branch and other new stores launching country wide. Keep an eye out for the Waterfront branch opening in the next few months in Cape Town.

#MRPVIP

A week ago Mr Price launched an early peek at the hottest items in their Autumn/Winter range, coming to stores in a month’s time. Bloggers and selected VIP shoppers got invited to the event in the evening, having a closed off store to their disposal to shop in. Displays with the hottest winter items, like cuffed joggers, printed track tops, statement tees, stonewashed denim and bomber jackets were lined up along a walkway. This was a chance for customers to buy Mr Price hot trends a month before their official release in stores. The event was held in Cape Town and Joburg, and was made irresistible with complimentary craft beer and coffee bars, selfie booths, butlers walking around with tasty tapas from Queen of Tarts, hanging marshmellows over burners and a dj playing pumping tunes to shop to. I worked at the event as one of the Stylista girls, one of 4 stylists on the floor to help with any styling tips and questions customers had. What a treat! A night of networking, sharing fashion stories and tips and getting spolit with Mr Price discounts and generosity. Thank you Mr Price!

Trend: Tones of Pink

Pink could possibly be the most versatile colour this Spring, ranging from electric corals to tints that are barely there. Washed out tones seem to be the sophisticated favourite paired with rose gold or white, but no doubt those candy floss and flamingo tones will creep into the equation as we head towards Summer. Pick the tone of pink that works for you.
