Great Sale Finds at Robinson’s Red Hot Sale!

August 3, 2014

Happy Sunday! What do you usually do on a Sunday? I usually spend my day in a mall or be lazy at home. Today I have decided to stay home.. because I (already) did a little fun strolling in Robinson’s Galleria yesterday for the second day of the Robinson’s Red Hot Sale! (I wish I could make the font flaming!) Think: 70% off on selected items! Before you go and head over to your nearest Robinson’s mall, check out some of the great sale items I have found in Robinson’s Galleria.

The greater news is that, the Red Hot Sale is happening the whole month of August from August 1 to 31. It means that (1) you have more time to plan your visit, (2) more time to plan your finances – imagine you can do another shopping spree on the next pay day, (3) you don’t need to worry about mad queue on the cashier – the usual scenario when you are out and shopping for a 3-day sale event.

I have visited some stores in Galleria and check out my great finds:

First stop – Karat World

Karat World
Red Hote Sale: 40% off on all items
except for silver pieces and accessories

I learned something new from this visit, Illusion Diamonds are pieces of diamonds put together to give an illusion of one big real diamond.


I borrowed a set and look at how these glitzy pieces made me look like a million-dollar (despite my camo jacket! haha). This set I was wearing is at 40% off! (Red Hot Sale!)

Real diamond sets with pearls are at 40% off (with Red Hot Sale!)

Looks like this is the perfect time to buy an engagement ring! They are on sale too!

I borrowed the biggest stone.. It still looked a bit small. I remember
my friend once told me she wants a big diamond, something blinding! Haha


For those who want fancy colorful bracelet, you can check the Bella Collection.

and for those who want a name necklace like the one I am wearing 🙂 
You can get a personalized name necklace from Karat Word too!
Red Hote Sale: 30% and 50% discount on selected pairs

Next stop is Sanuk! Sanuk is known for its casual, comfortable pairs of shoes.

Sanuk also has these lovely pairs made of Yoga mats!
These pairs are at 30% discount (Red Hot Sale!)



These are at 50% off! (Red Hot Sale!)
I always have issues looking for a pair that fits, so I was delighted when I found out I have 
a size from Sanuk! This pair now costs Php 1, 7000! (from original Php 3,400!). I was tempted!


Pop Az has a cameo role in this entry! Haha

We asked for the most expensive watch in the store, and Geraldine and Jett of Time Depot showed us the collection from Suunto. Price ranges from Php20 to Php40k (some pieces at 30% off) Red Hot Sale! This piece stood out and caught my attention.

I love the leather bracelet. It still looks feminine.

Perfect with my camo top! Yahoo! I have a lot of dressy watches, and I thought
it is time to get a big masculine watch. 🙂

I decided to go to Payless instead. On the way there, I saw Daniel Padilla (ok, not the real Daniel Padilla.. but POS material from Your Own Time (YOT).
Your Own Time (YOT)
Red Hote Sale: 10% discount on watch sets

YOT is Brazil’s number 1 watch. I love that you can interchange the strap and bezels. I asked where the product is made, and they said the technology is from Japan but made in Brazil.

If you are feeling a bit tired after whole day of shopping, you can check out the skin care and spa clinics in Robinson’s Malls which also offer discounted rates for services.
Red Hote Sale: Discounted rates for selected services.

DermCare has been in the business for more than 20 years. Aside from skin care services, they also offer hair treatment and massage services. Dermcare pioneered the whitening business in the Philippines and offers affordable, and quality products.

 Discounted services for Red Hot Sale

I was surprised to see the inviting and relaxing ambiance of the clinic. Didn’t occur to me that a skin clinic located in a mall would have such a nice, relaxing facilities inside.


Whew! That was one tiring but fun stroll around Robinson’s Galleria! A good shopping needs to end (or start) with a fine meal. Check out City Buffet which offers affordable buffet offering for only Php399.


 What I love about the Robinson’s Malls is that they don’t feel and look too crowded. Look at how the mall remain spacious and calm even on a sale event. You don’t see people rushing as if you were in a train station. 


The mini-stores and cafes on the aisles are really nice and even if they are situated in the middle of the mall, diners would still feel the sense of privacy when dining. Something that is rare to experience when you are dining al fresco-style in some malls. They are especially helpful when you need to buy a bottle of water (I did), because the shopping and strolling can make you really tired. 
I love that the guards are helpful too. We got lost somewhere in the mall finding the store locations, but guards are everywhere and very approachable. Thank you!
On my next trip, I am planning to raid Robinson’s Magnolia (my favorite mall!) 🙂 It just hit me that every Robinson’s Mall has a special meaning to me. 🙂
