How to get holiday ready with Fox Valley

The lighter nights are here, flowers are starting to blossom and after several months of dark winter nights, it’s fair to say many of us are starting to feel a little more optimistic about life in general.   

With a fresh spring in our step and the prospect of many summery nights ahead – many of us are starting to think about booking a summer holiday.

Whether you are planning on booking a staycation in the UK, or are looking forward to jetting off somewhere a little more exotic, Fox Valley can help you to get holiday ready in a number of ways.  

Holiday ready hair and nails 

Everyone likes to look their best when heading off on holiday – and a bit of self-care can go a long way towards helping us to get that fabulous feeling before boarding that plane or embarking on a road-trip. 

If you’re in need of a fresh new look, Foxy Nails located in the Independent Quarter at Fox Valley by the entrance to the centre, can offer a wide range of nail and beauty services such as acrylic extensions, gel, nail art and foot spa pedicure treatments.

If you would like to indulge in something a little more luxurious, then check out Sandersons Wellness Spa & Tanning Room. Located within Sanderson Department Store, the spa has been carefully curated for visitors to enjoy a space of peace, tranquillity and wellbeing. There are a range of treatments available including facials, eyebrow waxing, massage and a sunbed.

Feeling great in a new outfit

It is easy to get lost in the excitement building up to a nice trip away – but always remember how important it is to be well-prepared for your holiday.  

Nobody wants to spend the first day of their well-earned break in the hotel room burnt to a crisp because you forgot to buy suncream! 

Thankfully help is at hand, and our Boots store has a whole holiday-themed section to ensure you can enjoy a bit of sun worry-free.
