Oakville Place Grand Reopening Happening Soon

Attention, shoppers: You can learn how to make all things beautiful - from tablescapes to fall fashion - without leaving Oakville this weekend.

The Tastes of the Season Grand Reopening event is happening at Oakville Place on Saturday.

Shopaholics and influencers will be lining up to admire the aesthetic (and themselves, if we’re being honest … you already know there will be selifes galore!).

The mall has received a $40 million facelift of sorts, which includes modernization of indoor common areas and exterior improvements, renovation of the Hudson Bay store (I’ve scored some incredible deals here over the summer), replacement of the parking deck, and the introduction of retailers such as Pusateri's Fine Foods, Sephora, and Pandora.

So here’s what’s going down on Saturday: Participants can get inspired for the season with help from some of today's most influential tastemakers, such as Krystin Lee, Tony Cammalleri, Christie Ressel, and Natalie Sexton (I recognize her name from the Toronto talk show circuit — Marilyn Dennis, et al).

Lee will be demonstrating how to create a table that’s downright Insta-worthy, while Cammalleri will be helping you put together the perfect fall meal using fresh ingredients. And with Christmas coming, we can all use some help perfecting our culinary skills, am I right?

We can’t mention autumn without fashion: Ressel will help with fall fashion trends for every body type, and Sexton is showing off beauty trends for the season. (I’ve already packed the orange and hot pink lip colour away — they’ve been swapped for a bold red lipstick pencil from Vasanti that I’m absolutely obsessed with!)

The event is running on Oct. 14 at centre court from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.

Shoppers can enter to win a Dinner for Two at Oliver & Bonacini Cafe Grill valued at $140.

If you’re indeed going, the first 200 guests will receive an exclusive swag bag worth $500.
