The Iconic Launches Free Same-Evening Delivery For Christmas

TheIconic-portraitFollowing the launch of its Saturday delivery service last month, The Iconic is now getting into the Christmas spirit by offering free same-evening delivery over the holiday season.

Unlike its popular 3-hour turnaround, which costs $9.95, this offer will have your goods transported for free if you spend over $125 (being Christmas time and all, we’re sure that won’t be a problem). The new offer runs from December 1 through to Christmas Eve.

The Iconic is also extending its love to Brisbane and Adelaide metro areas for the holiday period, on top of the usual Sydney and Melbourne markets, which benefit from the 3-hour delivery all year round. Finally.

Not only will you be thankful for the quick turnaround when it comes to last-minute presents, you’ll also be happy to get our hands on stylish pieces for the staff parties, events and Sunday lunches which fill our calendar as the year draws to an end.

All you have to do is make your order by 11.30 am on weekdays to make the cut, and you’ll receive your goods that very evening. With the service already in full force, you can jump on The Iconic now to enjoy the offer.

Dannii Minogue Gets Catty to Raise Skin Cancer Prevention Awareness

Target designer Dannii Minogue has painted herself in bold leopard spots to raise awareness for skin cancer prevention, in a short video campaign for Invisible Zinc and Melanoma Institute Australia.

The video, titled “Some Spots Can Be Dangerous”, plays on the idea that while a leopard is unable to change its spots, we’re able to change our dangerous freckles and moles with simple skin checks over summer. “Australia has the world’s highest incidence of melanoma, so, please, get your spots checked,” Danni urges in the clip.

With Australia responsible for 75 per cent of all skin cancer deaths, Dannii knew this campaign was one she needed to be involved in. “When presented with these figures, along with the understanding that early detection could be lifesaving, I wanted to be part of this vitally important campaign,” she says.

For every share of the video, Invisible Inc is donating $1 to Melanoma Institute Australia, which pioneers vital research, essential treatment programs, improved patient options, and, hopefully, a cure. Watch the video for yourself below, and get sharing.

American Spending Falls This Black Friday

Bad news for anyone pinning their economic recovery hopes on Black Friday: Apparently, despite retailers’ best efforts to lure shoppers in, spending is down 11% from last year, according to Bloomberg. That would be roughly 6 million fewer customers this year vs. last. And all that after stores like K-Mart Black Friday-ed a day early, forcing allowing their workers and shoppers to spend Thanksgiving together. Aw, how sweet. But perhaps next year people can just stay home with their families?

Consumer spending was down $7 billion dollars this weekend, and this is the second year in a row that holiday sales have failed to please less than eager crowds. The glum news isn’t over yet: Less-than-fantastic figures are also expected for Cyber Monday, thanks to retailers extending sales throughout the week. 

We’re getting the feeling that folks are simply just all Black Friday-ed out.
