Chester Racecourse Launch Official 2019 Style Guide, in association with McArthurGlen Cheshire OaksPublished on 9 April 2019
There are now just over four weeks to go until the start of the 2019 Chester racing season.
Very soon gates will open and thousands of stylish racegoers will descend on the historic Roodee to revel in three days of spectacular racing at the Boodles May Festival.
Running Wednesday 8 – Friday 10 May, 21 races, a prize fund totalling more than £1,000,000 and an array of spectacular contenders will entertain the crowds, with top-class Group and handicap action. Competition will be just as fierce off the track, with racegoers aiming to be first past the finishing post in the fashion stakes.
Ahead of the much-anticipated season opener, Chester Racecourse have teamed up with the UK’s first and biggest designer outlet, McArthurGlen Cheshire Oaks as Official Boodles May Festival Style Partner for the second consecutive year and together present the Official Chester Racecourse Style Guide.
Kenny Murray, Centre Manager at Cheshire Oaks, said: “Building on the huge success of our 2018 partnership we’re thrilled to be partnering with Chester Racecourse again this year. As their official Style Partner, we’re delighted to provide styling advice from our brands’ latest collections. Our recent centre expansion has introduced new brands such as Mint Velvet, Dune, Kate Spade and many more offering up to 60% off the RRP, so there’s never been a better time visit to find your outfit for the upcoming racing season.”
The guide provides fashionable inspiration from the designer brands housed at McArthurGlen Cheshire Oaks, coupled with expert style advice and the hottest Spring Summer trends including pretty pastels and contemporary colour blocking.
For those new to the racecourse, the guide will provide a definitive ‘what to wear’ across all areas. From the relaxed setting of the open grass plain of the Roodee, to the fine dining surroundings of a private hospitality box, the guide offers up plenty of stylish inspiration on dressing for a day at the races.
As Official Style Partner, McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks will also host the Ladies Day best Dressed competition at Boodles May Festival on Thursday 9 May. Racegoers are encouraged to dress to impress, from head-to-toe to be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes. Up for grabs, must-have accessories to gift cards from Lulu Guinness, Karen Millen, Thomas Sabo, The Fragrance Shop, Ben Sherman & Suit Direct to name just a few. The style stakes are high for the gentlemen too, with prizes on offer for stylish men as well as ladies.
Racegoers are encouraged to share their outfit inspiration on social media using the hashtag #RacingReady and tagging @ChesterRaces and @CheshireOaksDesignerOutlet on Instagram.
