The global celebration of Irish culture is a fun-filled way to kick off spring in Toronto. Whether you have exciting party plans or just a day at home with the kids, St. Patrick’s Day can be a great opportunity for some laughs and festivities. Since the day of luck falls on a Saturday this year, you have plenty of time for activities to get in the festive spirit. With the help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, you’re sure to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day to the fullest!
Stock Up on Green Gear
This is a must (after all, you’ll get pinched if you aren’t wearing green!) If you just can’t seem to find anything in your closet, hit up Reitmans in MetroCentre for some of the latest in styles. You’re sure to find something fun and trendy that you can wear long after the festivities are over. For something a little more unique, head to Jazz Casuals. They have a variety of eclectic styles to choose from.
If you already have a fantastic outfit ready and are just looking for green accents, you can never go wrong with some fun socks or a green tie! Check out Legs Beautiful in Royal Bank Plaza for an extensive array of legwear, from sheer stockings to cozy socks. While you’re there, stop by MAC Cosmetics and pick up one of their vibrant green makeup shades to add a pop of festive colour to your daily makeup routine. For quality accessories with an Italian flair, Andrew’s Ties in Richmond-Adelaide Centre is a one-stop shop.
Don’t feel like shopping? Why not keep it simple with green nails! A pampering manicure in a fun shade can be a great way to get in the St. Patty’s spirit without committing to a whole new closet. Head to Polish’d in Richmond-Adelaide Centre for great service and impeccable customer satisfaction.
Bake Some Sweet Treats
If you’re not really in the party mood, a day of baking can be a great way to have fun and stay festive. Baking something St. Patty’s themed, like Lucky Charm bars or green-tinted sugar cookies, can be a great opportunity to incorporate the kids. Head to Indigo in Royal Bank Plaza and pick out a recipe book or two for a little inspiration.
For top-of-the-line baking supplies at an affordable price, Cook It in MetroCentre has an array of great options. Make your trip more convenient by stopping by Market Place after and picking out fresh, quality ingredients for your treats. Pick up some St. Patrick’s Day goodies while you’re at it, like chocolate-filled gold coins!
Customize Your Beverages
It’s a classic tradition to drink green-tinted beer on St. Patty’s, so why not extend that to all your other beverages for the day? Instead of your morning coffee, try picking up a matcha tea latte from Starbucks, located at Royal Bank Plaza, MetroCentre, and Richmond-Adelaide Centre. A green juice or smoothie is a healthy alternative to your usual breakfast or lunch and will also fit nicely with the theme, so pick up a tasty blend from Freshii in Royal Bank Plaza or OJ&S in Richmond-Adelaide Centre.
If you are planning on celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in true Ireland fashion, shake things up by replacing the classic Guinness with a themed cocktail. Head to LCBO in Royal Bank Plaza and have a look around. Creme de Menthe is usually a go-to when it comes to green-tinted drinks, but you can always stick to the Irish tradition of a whiskey base.
St. Patrick’s Day is a great way to start spring off on a fun and cheeky note. Whether your plans involve an exciting party or a relaxing day at home, there’s no reason you can’t join in on the Irish festivities! With the help of Oxford Properties and your Toronto PATH retailers, you’ll be sure to enjoy your St. Patty’s no matter what your day looks like.
