On Sunday last at the Solus Garden at Bloom in the Phoenix Park, Emma O'Shea (8 ) from Ballinrobe was chosen as the Brightest at Bloom on the yellow carpet from 10 finalists. Solus Brightest at Bloom is a nod to Ladies' Day but all-inclusive, open to ladies, gentlemen, children and all sunny dispositions young and not so young. It is not just about fashion but more about luminosity, brightness, and light.
Solus invited all attendees at Bloom to take a bright ‘selfie’ and upload it to the Solus facebook page #BrightestAtBloom. Finalists were invited to attend Bloom on Sunday last to the ‘yellow carpet’ where a winner was chosen. Solus offered a prize for the Brightest at Bloom of a helicopter ride over the beautiful Cooley Peninsula followed by a VIP lunch for the winner and all finalists receive a hamper of chocolates and new energy efficient Solus light bulbs which could save up to 30 per cent on energy bills.
