Please note this event has now sold out.

We’re combining three of our favourite things - shopping, makeovers and wine - to create the ultimate night out on Wednesday 22 February and the best bit is it’s all for a great cause.

We’re teaming up with some of the capital’s top independent boutiques and beauty experts to lay on an unmissable pop up fashion sale at Lulu where there’ll be substantial discounts on all sale items. Head along and enjoy a guilt-free shopping splurge in aid of Smart Works, an Edinburgh based charity that empowers women in need by providing them with clothes and arming them with the practical tools and confidence needed to succeed in an interview so they can start a new chapter.


The crew will be dressing tresses and offering hair-ups and how-tos throughout the evening.
