— Newcastle business The Handbag Clinic have donated the black Mulberry to Newcastle Racecourse as one of the Ladies Day prizes
We’ve seen queues of women lining up in the early hours in freezing temperatures to get themselves one from Fenwick’s Christmas sale and now a coveted Mulberry replica bag will be one of the prizes for Ladies Day’s newest Best Dressed winner.
Once again fashion experts will be at Newcastle Racecourse on Saturday for the glamorous annual event and at the end of the afternoon one lucky lady will walk away with a prize package that includes return flights to New York, an overnight stay in The Vermont Hotel, personal training sessions and VIP treatment at Livello and Aveika.
And then there’s the small matter of the Mulberry bag, worth £175, being donated by Newcastle city centre business The Handbag Clinic.
We called into the Mosley Street store on Friday afternoon to catch a glimpse of the prized ‘Lily’ bag and speak to the Clinic’s Purchasing Manager Charlotte Staerck about what it is about replica Mulberry bags that send women’s excitement levels soaring.
“Everyone loves a Mulberry because they’re ideal for work, nights out and events like Ladies Day. They’ve got a real classic look.”
The Handbag Clinic, who will be at Ladies Day with their giant pink handbag, stock a who’s who of high end designers with other bags on the shelves including Hermes, Valentino, Dior and Prada.
They are planning a week dedicated to Louis Vuitton early next month. Watch this space for further details.
