Two of the biggest and most highly anticipated events in Dundalk’s calendar will return with a very fashionable bang this July.

Dundalk Style Weekender will run from Friday 8th - Monday 11th July and will include a fabulous lineup of fashion, food and lifestyle in the surroundings of Marshes Shopping Centre. Rounding off the schedule will be the ever popular Marshes Ladies Day which returns to Dundalk Stadium on Tuesday 12th July.

Awash with a variety of events, Dundalk’s style conscious will be lavishly spoilt for choice at the range of beauty workshops, runway shows, cookery demos and social events on offer over the Dundalk Style Weekender.

Kicking off the weekend’s events is Friday’s exclusive and exquisite Midnight in the Garden - a VIP evening hosted by Marshes Personal Stylist, Caroline McElroy with bubbles, fashion and beauty workshops, makeup demonstrations and manicures.

Marshes shoppers will bask in this season’s catwalk trends as Caroline returns to host Summer Style Saturday featuring the latest looks from the centre’s retailers such as Penneys, New Look and River Island, to name a few.

It’s all about heavenly homes on Stylish Living Sunday with a showcase of the very best interiors from Marshes featuring a 60 minute home makeover where contestants can beat the clock to win big, as well as cooking demonstrations and delicious samples served on the mall.

Monday is for shopping until dropping as the centre reveals exclusive discounts and offers across a wide range of brands and in selected stores.

Special guest judges Dáithí Ó Sé, Caroline McElroy and NI Gossip Guy will be on hand on Tuesday at Marshes Ladies Day in Dundalk Stadium to crown the Best Dressed Lady. Stylish racegoers will be spotted by the judges who will select ten of the best before choosing the lucky winner who will win a trip to one of the world’s most stylish cities as well as a luxury shopping experience at Marshes. This year’s event will see a double winner as the People’s Choice Award is introduced, voted for by racegoers on the day.

As Marshes Personal Stylist, Caroline McElroy prepares to welcome guests to Dundalk Style Weekender and judge Best Dressed Lady, she offered some advice:

“The Dundalk Style Weekender is something we look forward to every year at Marshes. With such a strong retail line up it’s always great to be able to add a little glamour to the weekend with high energy, fashion-forward events that showcases what’s on offer across the centre.

“Shoppers will see this season’s hottest trends on the catwalk. We’ll have everything from jumpsuits to culottes and full skirts to cool denim looks. Soft colours will dominate complemented by beautiful makeup and summer hair.

“When it comes to the races, dress to impress! Headpieces can steal the show but let that or your dress be your talking piece, less is more ladies.”
