5 ways to enjoy spring in Elsternwick Village
It’s that moment in the evening when you realise it’s still light outside; the day you decide you don’t really need to take your jacket on your walk; when it occurs to you that everyone seems just that little bit happier – when you realise that, at long last, it’s spring.
Spring is all about new life, new beginnings, and optimism.
It’s the time every year when we shrug off the winter woolies and begin to embrace everything life has to offer – and there’s no place better to celebrate spring than Elsternwick Village.
Elsternwick Village has everything you need to embrace spring, with stores brimming with new fashion styles, decorating inspiration, and the best and freshest food you’ll find anywhere.
Here are some great ways to spruce up your life this spring in Elsternwick Village.
1. New spring fashion
Every new season brings a chance to revamp our wardrobes and fashion looks, but there’s something particularly special about spring, when style steps away from the utility of winter pieces and embraces colour and fun.
This spring, the only palette you need is pastel: think sheer lilac dresses, mint linen jackets, and loose lemon pants.
If you can imagine ordering it at your local gelato stand, you’re right on trend.
Casually cut cotton jackets over sweeping dresses, created from luxurious fabrics, is the look for the season and should be front of mind of when putting together your Spring Racing Carnival ensembles.
Our love affair with the cross-body bag is showing no signs of disappearing any time soon and can be teamed with neutral-coloured espadrilles or ankle boots.
2. Discover new cafes
It’s a pastime uniquely Melbourne: seeking out new cafes with the diligence and single focus of explorers of old, and sampling coffee blends with the passion of an Italian barista.
At Elsternwick Village there’s always a new cafe to explore, so step up your exploration game, chart a course if necessary, and try something new.

3. Spruce up your home
Your wardrobe isn’t the only part of your life that will benefit from a spring revamp. Add a bit of zing to the space you call home, with a decor do-over.
Whether you’re looking for a completely new look, or simply want to freshen up your existing vibe, you’ll find what you need at Elsternwick Village.
This spring, cottage-style prints and tropical themes are everywhere, and you can incorporate them into your home with statement furniture, cushions, and decorative pieces.
You’ll be surprised how just a few changes can make a huge difference to the space they occupy, and the people who live with them.

4. Opt for entertainment
There’s nothing like getting out and about in Elsternwick Village to connect with your community and enjoy all its pleasurable offerings.
The evenings are getting longer and warmer, creating the perfect setting for an evening spent sampling cocktails from your favourite bar, window shopping with an ice-cream in hand, or sampling the dishes from a new cafe or that restaurant that everyone’s raving about. Many of these indulgences can be enjoyed as takeaway options for those looking to enjoy a treat at home.
Sometimes though, the simple things are the best. Cozying up in front of a new release of a beloved classic feels like a hug from an old friend. Head to Classic Cinema for the latest blockbusters, or try their Classic At Home movie streaming service for a cinema experience that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your couch.
5. Spoil yourself
Springtime is when thoughts turn to new life and love – and to the fact that summer is just around the corner!
Spring offers a fresh opportunity to get fit. Elsternwick Village is home to clean, modern, world-class gyms and fitness facilities that offer in-person training and online workouts.
Spring is also a beautiful time to pamper yourself and Elsternwick Village has a range of health and beauty services to do just that. Consider booking a massage or facial for a future special occasion or see if a local salon is offering a pamper pack so you can indulge in some beauty treatments from the comfort of your home.
Don’t forget that nothing radiates outer beauty like inner health, so stock up on plenty of new season fruits and vegetables at Elsternwick Village’s legendary fresh produce stores.
This spring, Elsternwick Village has everything you need to put a smile on your face, a pep in your step, and a glimmer of sunshine into your lifestyle.
