Holiday shopping is much more fun in a place where you do not just see the happiness of Christmas, but feel it as well. At Evia Lifestyle Center, Vista Alabang, you can experience the warm, velvety feel of the Holidays as you go from store to store.
Get an instant Holiday fix from the giant Christmas tree in the middle of the Atrium that brings to life the merriness of the season. Fill your heart with hope as you gaze upwards to the tip of the tree that almost skims the glass dome ceiling.
Look around and enjoy the rich colors of Christmas on lamp posts and lintels — the Red, Green and Gold ablaze at every corner, with each store adding its own brand of holiday cheer to the halls of the mall.
Red, Green and Gold signify a traditional Christmas because Christmas celebrations originated in western and northern Europe where Christmas comes in the cold, dark winter. Ancient Christmas revelers used colors from nature to bring happiness to the winter feast.
Green stands for the plants in season: holly, ivy and mistletoe. Red comes from the Holly berries that abound during the white, wintry period. Gold symbolizes the Sun which sometimes shines during the cold winter season.
All these classic Christmas colors come alive in the decorations at Evia Lifestyle Center where Christmas shoppers are greeted even at the driveway with Santa Clauses lined up in a row. While there, Christmas bargains and fun activities entice them to stay longer, take in the atmosphere and experience the calming spirit the Holidays bring.
New stores have opened up at Evia just in time for Christmas. Global fashion brands like H&M and Uniqlo are now open, as well as local favorite Bench and shoe stores, Res Toe Run and Aerosoles. Kids, for whom this special season unfolds, can find their hearts’ desire at All Toys – a real toy wonderland that features a delightful play area for active games and fun for all children. On the side, shoppers can snack, dine and enjoy the spirit of the season at famous resto brands located at the Piazza like Mama Lou’s, St. Marc Café, Merlion Cuisine, Mesa, Hap Chan, TGI Fridays and Sbarro. Unique concept cafes like The Coffee Project and Another Story transport you to the realm of imagination and make- believe.
