Now this sounds fun, whether you’re planning on actually spending your hard-earned or not.
Yep, for one night only – next Wednesday, 11th December, in fact – St Pancras International is throwing shoppers something of a yuletide party, with a slew of complimentary goodies and up to 40% off at a wide range of retailers, including Kate Spade, MAC and Aspinal of London.
Intrepid pre-election-day punters can enjoy – deep breath – free bubbles and Indian head massages at the Eye Candy beauty bar, free fizz at Jo Malone, free express facials at Boots, and complimentary wine tasting sessions and canapes of an hour each (pre-booked only, mind) at old-school luxury store Fortnum & Mason.
For those needing a pick-me-up, Neal’s Yard Remedies will be offering free hand massages at their pop-up store, while if you like your booze warm at this time of year there’s mulled wine from station’s gastropub The Betjeman Arms. That’ll cost you nada, too.
The store discounts hover between 20% and 40% off at the likes of Kikki.K,Ted Baker and Hamleys, while Sourced Market is coming in with a 10% off discount (full details on the website).
And while sipping for nowt you can even marvel at the magical Christmas light show – taking place every hour, on the hour – from Lancôme’s 36-foot high installation, inspired by the Eiffel Tower.
