Are you a student? Do you love shopping? If so you’re going to love what’s going on at Liverpool ONE on Wednesday 26th September. The Student Event is back and is bursting with offers and discounts to suit everyone – there’s up to 50% off for one day only!
The Student Event is the perfect way to update your wardrobe ready for the new academic year. Some of my personal favourites are offering some unique deals for one-day only. The brand-new, two-floor Foot Locker store on South John Street is offering 15% off which will save you some serious money on all the latest trainers from brands like Nike, Adidas and Jordan. If you’re in the market for a new pair of jeans, the industry leaders in all things denim Levi’s are offering a massive 30% off, just make sure you save me a pair of 501’s!
I recently covered the opening of the new COS store in Liverpool ONE and if minimal, modern and contemporary fashion is what you’re all about then 10% off in store will be sure to guide you to that piece that will fill the gap in your wardrobe. Personally, I’ve had my eye on their White Leather Sneakers which retail at £79 which is a fair price for a quality pair of sneakers that will fit with any outfit. Add your 10% discount and they will be £71.10. I think COS will be the first stop on my list on the 26th.
It isn’t just the stores that are offering huge discounts, once you’ve shopped till your heart’s content you can stop by at one of the many dining spots dotted around Liverpool ONE with the key areas being The Terrace and Hanover Street. Restaurants like Bill’s, Byron, Las Iguanas and Yard & Coop are all offering 50% off the food bill. For the past couple of years that I have attended the Student Event it has become somewhat of a tradition to finish off in Pizza Hut, with 40% off the total food bill and happy hour price cocktails all day you can’t really blame me! Try ordering a table ahead of time by downloading the Liverpool ONE App, I recommend one of their sharing pizzas with the cheesy bites crust … you’re onto a winner, trust me.
If you’re heavily invested in snapping up those shopping deals and don’t have time for a full meal there are still plenty of offers from various food kiosks around the site. The recently opened Auntie Anne’s have 30% off their pretzels all day – I walk past this place daily and their food smells amazing! Once you’ve polished off your pretzel, you can head a couple of paces down the street to Millie’s Cookies who have 20% their cookies. To offset all the sweet treats, you can get your fill of micro-nutrients with a half price smoothie from the Fuel juice bar, now that’s what I call a balanced diet.
Make a day out of it with free entertainment provided all day. There’s a DJ truck set up in Paradise Place ready for a flash-mob. Barburrito and Wagamama will both have Spin the Wheel games set up, which gives you the chance to win free food prizes and vouchers. From 12-6pm you can compete against your friends in a game of Just Dance Ubisoft® near the ODEON Cinema. Make sure you bring your A game – the highest scorer on the day will with a £100 Liverpool ONE Gift card, plus there’s spot prizes for the best dance moves!
I think we can agree there’s plenty to get involved with on the day, be sure to share your day by using the #StudentEvent hashtag, find the Student Event snapchat filter and tag yourself at Liverpool ONE on Instagram and Twitter. No need to use your data as there’s free Wi-Fi around Liverpool ONE. There’s also a competition on the Liverpool ONE website which will put you in the running to win a prize package worth over £500!
