Glam Prix in Arnotts

We have been having such wonderful weather lately (Why would you leave Ireland if you were guaranteed a bit of sun every once in a while?).  While I sat out the back and read in the summer sun himself was sitting on the couch (spread across the couch doing his best Homer Simpson impression) watching the Grand Prix in Monte Carlo.  "We should go to Monte Carlo", he said when I was rustling up an ice cold beverage.  Who needs Monte Carlo when we have Dublin?  That's right, this weekend Formula 1 is making its way down the streets of Dublin.

To celebrate this, Arnotts are pulling out all the stops and transforming the (already amazing) Beauty Hall into a Beauty Pit-Stop race track for the weekend.  Customers will receive a race track card on arrival. This will have details of different beauty counters hosting activity at different times.  Customers will receive “Stripes” as part of an “Earn Your Stripes” competition for visiting the beauty counters and receiving a stamp on their Race Card for each activity they participate in. All Race Cards returned with every stamp will go into a draw for a prize.

 Let the boys swelter in the heat and the noise and the ladies can race to Arnotts.



This exciting event will host a number of events across all our favourite beauty brands including:

The Beauty Pit-Stop race track runs from Thursday 31st May through to Sunday 3rd June, see you there.  I wonder if himself will get suspicious that I am suddenly interested in Formula 1? Pin It
