The season of love is upon us yet again and it seems like every store is filled with Valentine’s Day cards, heart-shaped chocolates, and flowers.
But here at Greenwich Shopping Park, we believe in an equally significant date in the calendar, Galentines Day – we love nothing more than girls supporting girls!
It is celebrated each year on the 13th of February to showcase your appreciation of your girlfriends: the ones who always support you through the hard times and the good.
We have gathered our top tips to create the perfect day out for you to celebrate with your best friends, and they are all situated under one roof here at Greenwich Shopping Park!
Why not check out Wilko’s new super cute Under the Sea stationary collection, where you and your best friend could plan the next girls trip, write self-love and friendship affirmations all day to remind yourself and your girls how important you are to each other, or manifest big dreams for the future.
Make sure those long distant friends know how much they mean to you by heading over to our Card Factory store. There are plenty of choices to find that perfect card for that perfect friend this Galentines Day in the Galentine & Palentine range. With all the Galentines cards under £4.00, you won’t be breaking the bank to showcase your love!
On a frosty winter day, why not head into our Starbucks to have a good catch up with your girlfriends? A cup of Classic Hot Chocolate (with extra cream and marshmallows, of course) will definitely warm you up, or if you’re feeling a little extra this Galentines day, try the Refresha® Beverage line. We recommend either the fruity Strawberry Acai Refresha® Drink or the smooth Pink Coconut Refresha® Drink, you won’t be disappointed!
If caffeinated drinks are not your thing, luckily for you we have both American and Italian cuisines all under one roof at our Frankie and Benny’s restaurant. Perfect for you and the gang, for cheeky cocktails, delicious pasta dishes or the American classics – we can guarantee you that the Pornstar Martinis and Pina Coladas will be flowing as you toast for another year of great friendships and memories. If you fancy something a bit more sour – get 2 for £10.00 on Frankie and Benny’s very own Valentine’s Day cocktail – Loveheart Sours, with a little something on top to make anybody smile...
There is nothing better than a fresh pair of sheets for a peaceful night’s sleep after a busy day with your girlfriends, or to stagger into after a night out! In Matalan’s Homeware section they have a range of on trend minimalistic bedding that looks good in any bedroom, and perfect to give Kim Kardashian’s interior design a run for her money. Check out their beautiful 100% Cotton Seersucker Duvet Cover range in white, grey, beige, and many other colours.
Finally, head over to Boots to get those last minute pamper night essentials for you and the girls. We suggest the Kaolin Clay Mask from the critically acclaimed Inkey List brand which is suitable for all skin types with their fragrance free and simple formulas. Or if you’re feeling a little fancy the Cryo Rubber™ Face Mask in So Cool Duo by Dr.Jart+ will make you and your besties skin dewy and fresh.
(P.s and don’t forget to head over to our Superdrug where there are 3 for 2 on selected Maybelline makeup, run, don’t walk to get your hands on the new and trending Maybelline Colossal Curl Bounce Mascara which is sure to get those eyelashes fluttering.)
And now it’s time to see where the night will take you and your best friends, whether it’s a pamper night in or out for some cocktails, here at Greenwich Shopping Park we’ve got you covered, girl.
However, the most important thing we believe in is the love and support you girlfriends give each other. We hope you have a wonderful Galentines Day!
