How to make the most of spring in Elsternwick Village

When you begin to notice the evenings are lighter, the days are warmer, and everyone seems just that little bit, well, happier, it can only mean one thing: spring is here!

Everything seems to come alive in spring. Flowers bloom, we throw off those winter blankets and venture outdoors, we make plans, and we’re all that little bit more excited about the season ahead.

If you’re ready to live your very best spring life, Elsternwick Village is the only destination you need to know.

Our fashion stores are bursting with new season style, our homewares shops are curating brand-new looks, and our fitness and beauty studios are just waiting for you to spruce up your look and get ready for the warmer weather.

Here are the best ways to jump into spring in Elsternwick Village.

Refresh your home

Giving your living space a fresh, modern look doesn’t have to mean a major revamp. Just the addition of a few key homewares can give a room a whole new look and feel – and this spring Elsternwick Village has all the stores you need!

The key is to know the emerging trends of the season, and for spring 2023, there’s three: contrasting colour, 70s boho, and a trend known as the ‘romcom aesthetic’, which basically means fill your home with items you love.

Linen House Outlet has gorgeous linens and decorating pieces for every room of the house; and the reason that Dalgarno’s of Elsternwick has been around for four generations is because it’s packed with gorgeous items you’ll love.

For 70’s boho, you can’t go past Society of Merchants, which features an eclectic range of ceramics, lighting and art, each carefully selected for their aesthetic value and creativity.

To welcome in the spring season with a bit of colour and life in your home, get fresh flowers from Shady Hill Luxury Flowers, or head to Green Envy for a great range of indoor plants.

Embrace new season style

Spring 2023 fashion is giving off strong Miami Vice vibes, with pastels making a major splash, and for days when an edgier look is called for, denim on denim is the statement to make. And you’ll need shirts – lots of long shirts.

Pastels are taking over Elsternwick Village’s fashion stores and all the new season trends can be found at Tsalta and Urban Soul.

Perugia and Givoni have you covered for long shirts in different styles; and you can pick up your denim essentials at EnergieSpirit.

Make fitness fun

Spring is a great time to up your fitness game, and if there’s one thing we know about fitness, it’s that the regimes that stick are the ones that are fun – and that fun can be found at the gyms and fitness centres in Elsternwick Village.

UBX is Elsternwick Village’s circuit-based training studio with a focus on boxing for those who like to challenge themselves; Strong Pilates offers an inspired workout that fuses cardio work and rowing to create a full body workout that’s high in intensity and low on impact; and F45 Training is a program specifically designed to provide a 45-minute full-body workout that improves your metabolic rate, strength, and endurance.

For those who like a personal trainer to keep them on track, you’ll find the perfect workout buddy at 6 Degrees South Health and Fitness.

Pamper yourself

Our bodies have been cocooned beneath layers of winter woolies and spring is a wonderful time to treat them to the TLC they deserve!

Book in a face and body treatment at one of Elsternwick Village’s health and beauty spas, and calm your mind and muscles with a relaxation massage or facial.

Why not try out a new look this spring? Go on, try a new haircut or colour and get a fresh look at a nail salon.

Our hair stylists and nail technicians are keen to share their ideas of what would work best for you.

Try a new experience

Nothing invigorates the soul like trying a new experience and Elsternwick Village has a range of great ideas to inspire and delight.

Get down and dirty by taking a class at Céramiques, Elsternwick Village’s much-loved pottery workshop!

If painting is more your thing (or you think it might be), at UpVibes you can learn painting techniques from actual artists and then get to work on your own art, enjoying food and wine between brushstrokes. You can also enjoy a fully immersive art experience at Sossy + Canvas.

At Elsternwick Village, even our most loved experiences have a new spin! Take in a new genre of film at the iconic Classic Cinemas, or check out a new band at one of our live venues.

Fancy a quiet drink or a night on the town? Hit up a quirky bar or restaurant – there are so many to choose from!

Spring is all about becoming inspired and enjoying life, and in Elsternwick Village, you’re spoiled for choice.
