Boots kicked off Christmas at The Clarence Hotel in style! Beauty influencers and media enjoy chocopagne, vintage entertainment – and Santa James!
‘Chocopagne’ a delightful mix of white chocolate and champagne was but one of the delightful drinks on offer at the launch of Boots’ Christmas campaign on Thursday last.
Hosted at the Clarence Hotel, beauty industry influencers and journalists turned out to view and celebrate Boots Christmas range for 2022. It was Heaven to attend my first proper PR event since the onset of Covid 19.
James Patrice certainly made a statuesque festive impression in a red sequin mini dress with fur detail. Wearing high wedge heels, he towered over the attendance but his good humour and sense of fun was infectious!
The Bugle Babes looked delightful in their vintage rockabilly ensembles as they performed ‘Santa Baby’ and all the great festive classics. We guests enjoyed cocktails and delicious canapés and were treated to generous goody bags.
Among fashion and beauty influencers were Bairbre Power, Aimee Connolly, Tara Anderson, Hilda Smith (overthehilda.ie), Miss Ireland 2021 Pamela Uba, Malahide Woman and lots of celebrities from TV and the modelling industry.
Boots staff were on hand to chat about the various gift ranges and the zillions of exciting giftware in Boots ‘Joy For All’ gift guide 2022.
