And win a bunch of other perfume and beauty products that I'm pretty sure have a retail value of well over $100 (full list and pictures below). All you have to do is tell me Charlotte's best-kept retail secret.
Yes, this is a contest. I want to know what you think is the best-kept retail secret in Charlotte. It can be a store hardly anyone has heard of, an out-of-the-way roadside stand that sells something cool or a tip or trick that saves you cash.
Here are the rules: You can leave your secret as a comment or email it to me, but if you leave it as a comment, make sure that you include an email address where I can reach you. I may use this "secret" in an article or might file it away for later use. Please don't include anything illegal, such as "My secret tip is to shoplift more effectively." And finally, this contest is totally arbitrary, with me picking the winner.
Here's what you stand to win:
- An unopened bottle of Justin Bieber's new scent, full retail size. It is described as "an addictive fragrance that takes off with a sparkling splash of juicy mandarin, pear, and wild berries" and, I believe, comes in a bottle with heart-shaped rose petals on top.
- Bottles of perfumes from Taylor Swift (Wonderstruck, not yet in stores), John Varvatos, Rocawear Evolution, Jessica McClintock, and an outfit called "Live in Love."
- Bottles of Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator, Clarins age-repairing serum, and Jessica McClintock body lotion and bath and shower gel.
- A tube of Dior mascara, a thing of Prevage night cream, and a compact mirror.
So there you have it: Send me your secrets and I'll mail you Justin Bieber in a bottle.
