Sponsors of the Style evening have given us a sneak peek at their latest fashion and some ideas of what could make you the most stylish on Saturday 17th August.
For men looking to win the €1000 T.R.M voucher, Elaine Roche says it’s about showing your personality through your style. Men are becoming more and more conscious of fashion and can find ways to express their style in different ways.
For the ladies, a €1000 Redlane Boutique voucher is just one of the prizes on offer. Located in Tramore, it has been a powerhouse for fashion in Ireland. Its website launched back in 2008 and has dressed the best for years.
Catherine Keighery runs the boutique and online store and recommends some pastels for the evening.
Style evening is part of the 4-day Tramore August Racing Festival and looks to entertain people of all ages both on and off the track this year.
Speaking at the launch in Tramore, Racecourse manager Owen Byrne says “I have tried to bring some of the ‘sense of occasion’ to our plans for the August Festival”.
Some of the leading trainers, jockeys and owners are set to be in attendance at the South East venue with the huge addition of the €30,000 ‘Flynns Hotel’ feature race on the first day.
Race-goers can look forward to a revamped racecourse with the Blackwater Distillery Marquee; The Blackwater Distillery Lawn Bar; The Bistro; The Oyster Bar; the refurbished Inside Track Bar and Winner’s Circle Bar.
