Specsavers Blanchardstown recently held a successful SWOTY scouting day in the Blanchardstown Centre. Store staff were on the lookout for Ireland’s next Spectacle Wearer of the Year, having a stand for entries both in the main mall and in store.

Style event

Throughout the weekend the Blanchardstown Centre held its own style event, hosted by one of Ireland’s top presenters and style icons, Glenda Gilson. Customers were treated to a number of fashion shows, style master classes and special offers throughout the weekend. Summer fashion remained the focus, as Specsavers provided some of their stylish designer sunglasses for the shows, which complemented the model’s different looks.
