Three Tipperary retailers in hunt for Green Angel Challenge

Three Tipperary retail outlets are seeking the public’s vote to help them win the Go Green with Green Angel Skincare Challenge – a nationwide search to find Ireland’s most creative shop window.

The Guaranteed Irish-backed competition challenges Green Angel stockists to produce the country’s best St Patrick’s Day-themed window featuring the successful Irish skincare brand.

The competition was launched by Clonmel’s former Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh and Gerhard Scully, who was the iconic window dresser at Clerys department store for 25 years.

“There are two key components to a good window – individuality and creativity,” said Gerhard.

“People need to bring their own things into a window display, and make it in their own image almost.

“It should be something that they have designed themselves, put together themselves and shown that bit of love to.”

All of the entrants’ pictures will be posted on the Green Angel Skincare Facebook page where the public can vote for their favourite store and staff to win valuable prizes plus a €1,000 contribution to a charity of their choice sponsored by Guaranteed Irish.

And one lucky voter in each county will win a luxury hamper of Green Angel products.

Liberty Pharmacy, Lower Liberty Square, Thurles; Costigan’s Pharmacy, Main St, Tipperary Town; Finnerty’s Pharmacy, Kenyon St, Nenagh are registered for the public vote, which closes on March 14.

Green Angel stockists can still register for the competition by emailing customerservice@greenangel.ie or phoning 01 412 4900.

“With over 500 stockists nationwide, Green Angel Skincare has been one of the great growth stories in the Irish beauty industry over the past few years,” said Elizabeth Hunt of Guaranteed Irish, who are sponsoring the first prize for the winning outlet.

“We would urge all of our stockists to dress their windows imaginatively, help get their towns buzzing, and let the public vote for their favourite window,” said Mary Mitchell, Creative Director with Green Angel Skincare.
