‘The Only Way Is Essex’ TV Star Ferne McCann to launch St Nicholas Café, Bar and Spa in Shrewsbury, Shropshire
Ferne McCann, star of ITV2 show TOWIE, will officially launch the opening of St Nicholas Café, Bar and Spa on Tuesday 13th May.
Ferne joined the BAFTA-winning TV show in 2013 and became an instant hit with the press and public. Since joining the show Ferne has impressed with her refreshingly honest personality, humour and feisty ways. She’s a stunning and stylish addition to the show who doesn’t hold back with her opinions.
Ferne’s fashion is also gaining her recognition – she launched Ferne With Lasula in December 2013 and her second collection has recently been released.
Ferne kicked off 2014 as the new face of Caprice’s lingerie collection ‘By Caprice‘ and later in the year she will be going back to her hair styling roots and releasing a new hair colour range.
Shrewsbury’s Tootsies Beauty Retreat owners, Stephanie and Ben Smith, are the team behind Shrewsbury’s first Moroccan inspired Day Spa.
Located in the heart of Shrewsbury within an old converted church, St Nicholas dates back to 1865. Their philosophy fuses ancient expertise with modern innovation. A concept echoed throughout the contemporary Spa, bringing together the hugely beneficial rituals of Moroccan wellness and grooming, including Hammam, Rhassoul and Salt-Infused Steam Room experiences, with scientific advances in skin care and products to deliver tangible results.
Stephanie Smith said: “We’re delighted to have Ferne open St Nicholas, she’s fun, fashionable and is a great ambassador”.
St Nicholas Spa will be using the famous La Sultane de Saba range – a concept based on the ancient and precious beauty ritual of oriental women, which is transmitted from mother to daughter and from generation to generation. Through its authentic and original products, its thousands of flavours and colours, La Sultane de Saba has the vocation to make you dream and let you travel, discovering faraway horizons, towards the lands of the sun, where body and spirit come back to the essence of relaxation and wellness.
Stephanine Smith, Director of St Nicholas said: “We chose La Sultane de Saba not only for the quality of products and treatments but as a brand that clearly stood apart as offering something truly different and remarkable. Providing memorable experiences and a place where people wanted to return to was really important for us”.
La Sultane de Saba brings age-old remedies back to life. A combination of high-quality, pure, natural ingredients, which harness the powers of plants and spices, are used alongside specialist techniques to create exceptional treatments that heal mind and body. Therapists at St Nicholas Spa have been trained to mix and blend these recipes to offer customised treatments to suit individual needs. La Sultane de Saba products are made using rare and precious essences. The products are free from parabens, not tested on animals and do not contain any animal ingredients. All products adhere to strict laboratory testing.
In addition to the luxury spa, St Nicholas boasts a newly-renovated café offering a range of drinks and a host of delicious food. There are also various options available for private hire – it is the perfect location for any even from birthdays and weddings to corporate parties or christenings.
