It is always warm in the Philippines, more so during the Summer where its more fun to wander around in our fit flops and shorts.
Fit flops will always be part of the Pinoy`s arsenal of must haves, which makes the Banana Peel event so much fun. We can actually have fun under the sun even away from the beaches.
Banana Peel is the first flip flop concept store in the Philippines. They are the only banana peel that nobody slips in because they are what the customers want to slip on. This brand believes that fit flops are not only apparel but a lifestyle!
They promise to provide only trendy designs that cater to the ultra chic, the athletic, and the classic with- out sacrificing quality. They have reacquainted the plain flip flops by bringing the thongs to life with colors and prints because every sole has every “you.” Part of their vision is not to not only be “Everybody’s Favorite Flip Flops!” but also, “Everybody’s Must-Have Flip Flops!“
Last May 16 and 17, Banana Peel invited bloggers and flip flop lovers to enjoy the summer good vibes through its “Summer in the City” event at the UP Town Center, Katipunan. This is Banana Peel`s way of thanking their loyal followers for continuously supporting its products.
“Summer in the City is a way for us at Banana Peel to have an afternoon of good vibes, fun and treats with our customers,” said Charmine Manuel, Marketing Manager of Banana Peel. “Just by presenting a receipt worth 300php from Banana Peel, our customers got to enjoy all the treats in the venue added Manuel.
I arrived at the event ground a little before 10 AM, the bloggers have first crack at all the games and booth before they open the gates for guest at 12NN. Each guest gets a passport to all the great booths at the event grounds.
