Find everything you need for spring racing in Elsternwick Village
The sun is out, the blossoms are blooming, and there’s a buzz in the air.
Spring Racing Carnival is upon us and at Elsternwick Village, the stores are lining up at the gates to start the gallop for the most stylish and luxe racing season yet!
Whether you’re a dedicated punter or your competitive streak lies with Fashion on the Fields, a Birdcage babe or in the race to win the best barbecue stakes, Elsternwick Village has all the fashion, food and everything fabulous to make your race day prep perfection.
Find fashion for race day
The finest fillies on the field aren’t on the racetrack – they’re drinking champagne in the stands or picnicking in the car park, and all eyes are on the fashion.
Every race day has a different fashion theme, so you’ll need to have several looks organised. Pick up the latest looks at Elsternwick Village’s fashion stores or create an original ensemble by mixing key pieces with retro finds from one of Elsternwick Village’s op shops.
It’s a well-known fact that the best fashion accessory a woman can wear is a stylishly suited up man on her arm, and the menswear stores of Elsternwick Village are ready to dress the men heading to the races.
Ladies and gents, don’t forget your shoes. They can make or break and outfit and the Elsternwick Village shoe stores can match a pair to every outfit.
All about the hair
Fascinators and headbands are dominating the headwear stakes this spring racing season, so hair is in the spotlight.
Book in for a fresh cut and colour at your favourite Elsternwick Village hair salon – and bring your fascinator so you can discuss the blow-dry or up-do that will best show it off.
The barbers of Elsternwick Village are ready to neaten up the styles of the men and it’s a great time to treat yourself to a shave.
Beautify your body
With so much skin on show, getting your body race-ready has never been more important.
Wax, buff and moisturise your skin at one of Elsternwick Village’s beauty salons – and be sure to book in for a facial that will have your face glowing like a winner.
Nails are the finishing touch, and they’re the touch worthy of time and care. Book in for a mani and pedi at a local nail salon and order a polish you’ll feel, and others will notice.
To really steal the show book in to have your race day makeup done at a beauty salon.
Celebrate spring racing at home
Celebrating the races in style can be done even if you’re at home.
Fire up the barbeque with a selection of meats and seafood from Elsternwick Village; create a grazing table with fresh fruit, cheese, and meats from one of our famous delis; and assemble some wonderful salads with fresh fruit and vegetables from Elsternwick Village’s fresh food stores.
The key to a great Spring Racing Carnival is all in the preparation, and at Elsternwick Village no matter where your horse ends up, you’ll always take your place in the winner’s circle.
