Travel site Airbnb is offering fashion lovers the chance to win a shopping spree and overnight stay at the iconic Galeries Lafayette store in Paris in 2015.  As some of you may know, the store’s famed winter sale kicks of off on Jan. 7, 2015 (the store’s after Christmas sale is already on if you’re interested.)   This contest offers shoppers the chance to stay overnight in the store on Jan 6, 2015, sleeping under the store’s beautiful stained glass dome, so that the winner can be first in line to shop the winter sale.   Plus the winner will receive a gift certificate or voucher to shop the sale in the amount of €200.  Interested? Here’s what you need to do to try to win.   Head to the Airbnb site and tell them in 100 words why you should be selected to shop this sale before midnight Dec. 28, 2014.

The winner and five other lucky guests from anywhere in the world, will be selected.   From Airbnb, here’s some details on the prize package:

“Our two triple rooms, located in one of the prêt-a-porter departments, under the famous century-old glass dome, will transport you to the walk-in closet of your dreams.

After the doors close to the public the evening prior to the sales, this over-sized closet will be all yours. With the help of a personal shopper, you will seek out, try on, and finally select the wardrobe of your choice. And a welcome gift of a €200 gift voucher will help to get you started.

Afterwards, you will be spoiled with a sumptuous dinner overlooking the dome, before settling comfortably in your room for the night. Meanwhile, as you sleep, the aisles will be re-stocked, as if by magic.

Upon enjoying a French breakfast the following morning, you will have the privilege of being the first customer to go through the checkouts, just before the official kick-off of the January Sales and its usual mad hustle and bustle.”

Thanks to Airbnb Ireland for sponsoring this exciting giveaway.  I already entered.  Let me know if you are entering.  I’d love to see one of us win!
