Highlights of the Season

Lots of Stores for Your “ Nice ” List

LETTER FROM THE EDITORS Season’s Greetings, and welcome to the newest edition of BOWER PLACE LIFE & STYLE . There is a crisp feeling in the air that can only mean the arrival of the Christmas season! We’ve got you covered (literally) with our showcase of amazing things to enjoy; including tech, housewares, and our favourite fashion trends. This season’s hottest style trends include chic folk, modern leather and cheeky checks. These looks can be adopted in small doses or with broad brush strokes to your holiday office or party look.

We want to make one lucky customer’s holiday memorable when we award (2) VIP tickets to see the ELLEN Show LIVE in LA with all the trimmings including airfare, hotel nights and a private car service! Get up close and personal with Country Superstar Johnny Reid as he shares his own Christmas traditions plus renowned Chef Vikram Vij from CBC’s Dragons’ Den talks candidly about the hectic Holiday season in the restaurant world. We’re putting the finishing touches on our must-see charitable events for the season, Santa’s Brunch, and our 4th annual Red & White Night. We hope to see you there! Wishing you a safe and memorable Christmas!
