Top tips on how to survive a shopping sale frenzy
Start With Coffee
First things first, after you park your car head straight for the nearest café to get your fix. Do not get tempted by the big red SALE signs just yet, caffeine is of the utmost importance if you want to stay focussed. Lucky for you Lakeside Joondalup has your back when it comes to the morning buzz with takeaway options at every entrance. If you’re catching the train stop by Coco Cubano on your way in and try out the Brekky Bundle offer. Like to park at the South Mall entrance? Jamaica Blue brews a mean cuppa. West Mall aficionados have old favourite Miss Maud’s for a hit whilst North Mall parkers have loads to choose from in the Great Space, including Mrs Fields with their award-winning blend. Fresco entrance fans can stop by The Coffee Club on their way in and for those parking at the East end of the Centre, Sister’s Supa IGA on Level One have a gorgeous little café dishing up early morning coffee and delicious cakes to match.
The Right Shoes
The only shoes to consider wearing on Sale Weekend at Perth’s biggest shopping centre are the tried and tested comfiest pair in your wardrobe. You’re bound to clock up a few steps on your Fitbit so now is not the time to stray from an easy to slip on and off pair for when you’re traipsing between the changerooms. In saying this, if you do get caught out and can feel a blister on the way there’s no harm in picking up a new, comfy pair on your travels to change into. It’s always good to remind yourself in these situations that Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life.
With over 100 stores going on sale this weekend at Lakeside Joondalup you’re no doubt going to be trying on a lot of clothes. So leave the layers at home and don something that you can whip on and off in record time. Jumpsuits, t-shirt dresses or jeans and a tee make perfect sale shopping attire paired with a comfy pair of shoes (don’t skim over point two…).
So you’ve managed to make it to lunchtime, your arms are probably a bit sore from carrying all your bargain purchases and your stomach is probably starting to growl with hunger pains. Of course you could give up now and head home, but we know you’re not a quitter and with so many bargains to peruse why would you! Get your energy levels back up with a pit-stop at one of the many restaurants and cafes dotted around the Centre including Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant who have a $15 Lunch special menu only on in September.
… And Zen
It’s been a long day, you’ve walked the entire centre snapping up bargain after bargain. It’s probably time to go home but the thought of needing to still prep dinner for the family or get ready for a night-out make you yawn in exhaustion. So go on, get Zen for an hour and treat yourself to a lush pedicure at the newly opened Roxanna Nails and Beauty. Better yet, they’re even offering 20% off this weekend only.
