February 6, 2018

Trust us, when it comes to welcoming the Year of the Dog, there’s no better place to do so than at Oakridge Centre. Catch a glittering array of events and displays (and giveaways!) embracing art and culture between February 7th and 25th, 2018, and discover a range of retailers offering the very best variety of new year gifts and goodies—including our top picks, below. Here’s to celebrating Chinese Lunar New Year, Oakridge style! —Noa Nichol


lady in red. This sequin red top from Donna Karan (price in store) offers a sparkling way to dress for a lively lunar celebration!


red rover. A Marc Cain bag in the luckiest of colours makes a bright edition to our new year’s wardrobe ($880).


puff doggy. We’re giving our bag a lunar new year pup-date with this luxe Michael Kors pom-pom charm keychain ($98).


cuppa luck. Nespresso’s ruby red Essenza Mini and Aeroccino bundle ($249) makes perfect coffee, for a lucky start to each day of the new year.


puppy love. Looking for a way to give back? We love that Oakridge is generously supporting shelter dogs via its 2018 LunarFest New Year celebration. Look for 100 "Year of the Dog" inspired artist-rendered figurines in retailer storefronts throughout the mall; at the conclusion of the festival, these will be available for purchase for $38 each. All proceeds from the adoption of these dog-inspired sculptures will go to the BC SPCA. Additionally, during LunarFest, Oakridge Centre’s guests are invited to upload images of their dogs to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter with #dogsofoakridge; Oakridge Centre will donate $1 to the BC SPCA for every posting!
