ALL things style and beautiful filled Blanchardstown Centre recently when they hosted the U-Style event, in conjunction with U Magazine.

The catwalk – which was filled with colour, floral, monochrome, holiday essentials and bold pieces – was the focal point for shoppers throughout the weekend.

Shoppers were also treated to beauty and style masterclasses, and there was a range of discounts across many of the retail stores.

Commenting on the event, Ciara Daley, marketing executive at Blanchardstown Centre, said: “U Style was a huge success, and a fabulous weekend of style, beauty and fun.

“Our spring/summer catwalk shows showcased the wide range of fantastic brands available at Blanchardstown Centre, with everything a girl could possibly need in her wardrobe to keep her on trend this season.

“All items featured in our shows are in store, and available to buy, now.

“Over the weekend, we had great discounts from BT2, A/wear, Diesel, French Connection, MEXX, Debenhams, Boots and Specsavers, to name but a few.

“There were some seriously stylish ladies over the weekend who walked away with some amazing spot prizes, and, of course, our Covergirl winner, Anastasia Perelighin [see inset].

“Anastasia won a €500 shopping spree in Blanchardstown Centre, a feature in U Magazine, an overnight stay plus dinner in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, a beauty hamper from Inglot, and a gift from McCabes Pharmacy.

“All that, plus complimentary beauty treatments! It was a great weekend all round. To check out all of our pics and videos, see www.facebook.com/blanchardstowncentre,” said Ciara.
