Paris’ divine shopping destination, Galeries Lafayette, is literally going green this St. Patrick’s Day in celebration of Tourism Ireland’s Global Greening Campaign. Joining international icons like NYC’s Empire State Building, the London Eye, the Great Wall of China, Australia’s Sydney Opera House, Rome’s Colosseum and more, the department store’s façade and 100-year-old dome will glow in the signature Irish color.
From fashion and festivities to cocktails and dining, Galleries Lafayette is a great place to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day if you’re in Paris. Stop by Starbucks for a Green Tea Latte before making your way to Pierre Hermé Paris for a Green Apple macaroon – the perfect fuel for an afternoon of St. Patrick’s Day perusing.
Tourism Ireland calls St Patrick’s Day, “…a day of celebration for Irish people and those who love Ireland, all over the world.” Whether you’re enjoying sidewalk views of their superior exterior or basking in their elaborate interior over a lively beverage, there are several great ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in and around Galeries Lafayette.
