The winning outfit
Sarah-Jane was wearing a red trouser suit from Olivia Danielle Boutique in Athlone, her hat was designed by Irish milliner Suzie Mahony, and her shoes were by Valentino. Her matching red handbag was also from Olivia Danielle Boutique.
Twenty-three year old Sarah Jane Moran who graduated from Athlone IT last October with a business degree and is pursuing a career in fashion, said: “I’ve been riding horses since I was four years-old and am big into show-jumping. It’s my first time at Roscommon Races too, so to be here with horses and fashion is the perfect combination for me. I’m absolutely ecstatic to win the SuperValu Ladies Day.”
For the second year in a row, six SuperValu shops in the region came together to sponsor the annual Ladies Day event. Shane Fleming, from SuperValu in Roscommon, said: “We were delighted to see so many ladies turn out at SuperValu Ladies Day this evening. Marietta did a great job picking the finalists and eventual winner. Everyone looked great – congratulations!”
SuperValu ladies day judge and TV fashion stylist Marietta Doran, said “I was absolutely thrilled with the fashion at Roscommon. It was lovely to see all the bright colours. The standard was so high, it made my decision to narrow it down to 10 finalists so hard. I could have easily picked 20 finalists and that is a tribute to how well everyone looked at SuperValu Ladies Day at Roscommon on Monday night.”
Michael Finneran, Manager of Roscommon Racecourse said: “I want to thank SuperValu for once again coming on board to sponsor the prizes for the best dressed competition at Roscommon. Ladies day at Roscommon continues to be an important event in our racing calendar and brings great glamour to our track.”
