The best way to prepare yourself for a long weekend filled with indulgence is to begin indulging a few days in advance- ease yourself into it, if you will. With this in mind, today’s Highpoint Shopping Centre’s VIP Shopping Day could not have come at a better time.

First and arguably most importantly, you’ll need to dip your toes into the sugar-fest that is the Easter long weekend. Foodies can indulge their sweetest dreams by creating the ultimate dessert mash-up of favourite flavours from Cupcake Central, Bakers Delight and Koko Black. If your hunger still isn’t satisfied, Head Chef of Fancy Nance, Daniel Texter, will be providing inspiration for Easter feasting by demonstrating how to make delicious meals using fresh Victorian strawberries.

Walk off your cinnamon donut with a cupcake on top/chocolate in a finger bun (those are genuine dessert mash-up options) by hitting the shops, taking advantage of savings from Highpoint’s leading retailers including General Pants Co, Topshop/Topman, Gorman, Swarovski, Nike, Witchery, Sunglass Hut, Forever New, Mimco, Mecca Maxima and the newly opened fashion destination Mossman.

On the fashion front, discover the hottest autumn/winter trends as Highpoint recreates its latest editorial shoot in centre. Customers can try their luck at unlocking a treasure trunk full of must-have sartorial loot with plenty of winning keys up for grabs. David Jones will also be hosting an Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium fragrance experience, the perfect accessory to any new season look.

Parents can have peace of mind while they shop up a storm after dropping the kids off at Highpoint’s Stay ‘N Play Creativity Centre. The fully supervised play area will keep children entertained for hours with activities including arts and craft, dress up and construction.

Also making its debut at Highpoint is men’s lifestyle and barbershop concept, Journey by Nada Igual, bringing its unique brand of casual cool to Melbourne’s West. To celebrate there will be free barber cuts with any purchase and beer and burgers a plenty from cult eatery Huxtaburger.

Finish off your shopping session on a high note and drop by the bar for a complimentary glass of bubbles while Highpoint’s resident DJ spins some good vibes.

Get involved in the fun, head to Highpoint Shopping Centre, 120-200 Rosamond Road, Maribyrnong on 23 March or visit www.highpoint.com.au for more information.
