Limerick’s top retailers hosted a group of influential bloggers on Friday, 9 December for the inaugural Limerick Style event.
The event saw 20 Irish bloggers go on a walking tour taking in a mix of Limerick retail stores where they enjoyed pop-up fashion shows and experienced the city’s famed style culture.
They visited O’Donnell’s & Lilly’s Boutique, Ryan’s Jewellers, Vision 2 Opticians, The Attic Bridal Boutique and The Ivory Closet. The fashionable day also incorporated a foodie flair with treats from The Savoy Hotel, Aroi, Hook & Ladder and Ted’s.
Jacinta Khan, George Boutique Hotel, speaking on behalf of the organising committee said, “This is a very timely visit by some of Ireland’s top fashion bloggers as it gives us an opportunity to promote some of Limerick’s high-end retail offering at the most important time of year.
“We have had a great start to the Christmas shopping season but this initiative will generate even greater awareness of the fantastic array of fashion, accessories and gift offerings available in Limerick. We’ve much to shout about in that regard and we are getting a fantastic platform to shout it from with this visit. The bloggers will have plenty to write, post and tweet about with prizes, coupons and goodie bags up for grabs on the day.”
Laura Ryan, Head of Communications & Marketing at Limerick City and County Council said, “Limerick has always been known for its style and time and time again we hear this from visitors.
“It’s the perfect place to spoil yourself and this event will bring together some of the best that the city offers particularly with so much positivity around Limerick at the moment. Christmas is also an ideal time to really promote what we do well and the #LimerickStyle event is an example of that.”
The event was organised by local businesses, the Irish Blogger Agency and the Office of Communications & Marketing, Limerick City and County Council.
