IT’S BEEN a long time coming but summer is finally here! At The Constantia Village we’re celebrating its arrival with a Summer Showcase from 23 to 29 October with displays throughout the centre featuring all your summer essentials – from hot fashion trends, the best beauty products and treatments, and everything you need for a perfect summer outing or that special family holiday.


If you’re wanting to splash out on a new summer wardrobe or add zing to your existing one, we’ve got everything to need to do just that. Mix brilliant basics with a few hot trends (yellow is the colour of the moment, stripes are big, shirts have cropped, flared sleeves and gold or silver metallic slips-on are the rage) and you’ll not only have fun with fashion but be a summer trend-setter.

Look out for beautiful shirts, flirty, floral-print dresses, bags that pop with colour, the perfect piece of jewellery and the fabulous footwear that’s red-hot right now: sexy sneakers, wedge heels and cool sandals and slides. It’s easy to be fashionable this summer with the fabulous collections at the centre.


Nothing says summer more than the perfect manicure or pedicure in sparkling shades. Whether you lean towards incandescent or ice-box colours, jump on the yellow bandwagon or opt for classic red, our beauty experts are waiting to pamper, polish and paint. Don’t forget those other essential summer treatments, too (waxing and the like) so that you’re ready to enjoy everything summer has to offer feeling confident and ready for action.

While it’s fun to bask in the warmth of the sun and be out and about, don’t forget to take care of your skin and hair – our displays will have the best sun-protection products on display and all the beauty goodies you need – from shower gels to special shampoos, those all-important SPF face and body moisturisers and more.


The beach is bound to beckon or perhaps you’re planning to picnic at Kirstenbosch, laze beside the pool or gather round the braai with family and friends – The Constantia Village has everything you need to make the most of your down-time.

From thick fluffy towels, hats, the best bathers, sun glasses, a wide selection of bright-and-roomy beach bags, great summer books (what is summer without a beach read?), bags full of toys to keep the little ones amused, balls, braai and pool accessories … it’s all here. Come in to look at our wide selection on display during our Summer Showcase week.


Refresh your home décor by replacing tired old scatter cushions with beautiful new ones, invest in summery curtains or add glamour to your bedroom with a beautiful new bedside lamp.

Our lifestyle, homeware and décor store displays will give you great inspiration and loads of ideas. Whether you simply need to up your entertaining game with a beautiful new table cloth and a matching pastel pitcher to wow guests when serving homemade lemonade or a knockout cocktail (greet your guests with blueberry vodka spritzers), or need new accessories to hold the perfect braai, we’ve got what you need to pull it off with panache.


What’s summer without a holiday? Plan the perfect island getaway (Mauritius, Seychelles,  Madagascar … you’re spoilt for choice) or fly somewhere more exotic (Thailand) with a perfect proposal from our travel agent that’s tailored to meet your budget. Or simply get to know your own province or country. The (sunny) sky is your limit.

If you’d rather stay close to nature and go hiking or embark on a camping holiday to one of the Western Cape’s famous, scenic camping spots, we’ve got everything you’ll need (including all the things you think you don’t need, but actually do!). From the perfect tent to fireside treats to the latest specialist hiking gear and footwear.

Visit our Summer Showcase at The Constantia Village from 23-29 October and get into the mood. We’ve got everything you need for the fresh new season. It’s summertime, and the living is easy …
