CHENNAI: To celebrate the spirit of Motherhood, Phoenix Market City in Velachery organised a mother-daughter shopping time at the mall on Friday. Around 10 women from the Duchess Club — a women’s organisation, were invited to participate in the celebration. “We wanted to do something different this year other than giving vouchers, so we thought why not treat women and their daughters to a shopping trip,” said Noel Vessaoker, centre director.

The daughters were given the task of choosing outfits and accessories within a budget of Rs 15,000 and give their moms a makeover. They later had to click a picture and send it to the mall officials. “It was so much fun,” said an excited Vasanthi Srinivasan, a homemaker and an avid organic gardener. “We went to Only and tried out their collection. While we had to return the outfit, I’m planning to buy this long kurti, but my daughter wants me to buy something else,” she said. “I so want her to try something new,” chipped in Karuna, her 19- year-old daughter. “It’s been pretty long since we went out shopping, I really thank Phoenix to make this happen,” she added.

After shopping, the women were treated to a free skin care advice by beauticians from Clinique, Chanel and other stores followed by a delicious meal at Spaghetti House.

 “We are also going to screen the newly released Piku for them in the evening,” said Noel.
