Enjoy Your Holiday Shopping to the Fullest with RBC Avion #AvionVIP

Avion Holiday Boutique
I love Holidays, especially in winter, my favorite season - all the preparations, shopping, decoration, baking, cooking, endless phone conversations with family and friends around the world and lovely congratulatory messages. I think that the most exciting part during holiday season is not holidays themselves but the preparation time when we so cheeriosly anticipate festivities, family gatherings, buy gifts to our loved ones and, finally, have a good reason to call everyone and wish happy holidays.

When I was offered to learn about Avion VIP Boutique at Toronto Yorkdale mall I can say it appeared simply to save me this season. If you saw my shopping list and my picky family and friends, you know that I almost live at Yorkdale mall and make my shopping there for last ten years.

RBC Avion Holiday Boutique is a lounge where RBC Avion cardholders can relax, recharge and enjoy various complimentary services from Valet Parking to Gift Wrapping. RBC Avion Holiday Boutique VIP lounges are open this holiday season from November 23 to December 31, 2013 at Yorkdale in Toronto, Mail Champlain in Montreal, Coquitlam near Vancouver and the Halifax Shopping Centre.

As an Avioner you do not need to worry about finding parking spot any more, you get your Valet parking right away and forget what the word “FULL” means. Another great service is coat and parcel check, last week when we visited Yorkdale mall we left our winter clothes at Avion Holiday Boutique and headed for shopping.

We were walking from one store to another, and the thought that every moment I could just go back to Avion Holiday lounge to relax filled me with energy and excitement. I did not feel any fatigue or wish to leave the mall, in opposite I wanted to stay more and was very focused on my shopping, gifts, fancy styles, colors and ideas.

Coffee, hot chocolate with marshmallow and holiday sprinkles, water and cookies for the whole family, nice treat for everyone. You can sit in a bar and have a friendly chat with other Avioners or you can go to a lounge and relax there. Comfortable chairs are always waiting for you, there are enough room for strollers too. Live music including favorite Christmas songs makes you feel VIP for sure. And the best thing you can go shopping again, come back, take a break, have your gifts wrapped, leave them at parcel check and go for shopping again. Isn’t it amazing? And all those services are free for Avioners. Plus friendly staff is always ready to help you. My boy loved sitting there and reading kids’ books while I was reading magazines and drinking my hot chocolate.

When I first learned about RBC Avion VIP boutique I simply screamed that  they made shopper dreams come true, I just could not find another words for that. Again, who are those Avioners who receive all VIP treatments? The answer is simple. These are people who have RBC Avion card.

  1. It looks so comfortable and inviting! I would love to go there sometime during the holidays!

  2. Looks like a place I'd love to go during the holidays. And you totally had me at valet parking :)

  3. Could we ever use a mall like that in New York (I might even go shopping more then)--or anyplace in the US for that matter. I might even keep my sense of humor in a mall like that where I could go and let my temper from the crowds cool off a bit-or just sit and read while those I am with shop till they drop!

  4. This is wonderful! I love everything about Avion.

  5. LOL that you screamed. Hahahaha. It is pretty sweet. :) I love the pictures.

  6. What a magical winter wonderland; perfect place to hang out during the Christmas Season... LOVED the pictures, thanks for sharing

  7. The RBC Avion VIP boutique is the place I would want to shop just so I could hang out in their comfortable lounge. Wow... not many places offer that kind of service.

  8. This looks like such a relaxing and inviting place to shop. It is the perfect escape during the holidays and the photos are just beautiful.

  9. The men in my family would love to sit in there while I did the shopping.

  10. This sounds perfect and made for the season. Sadly we don't have that here in the Philippines

  11. Looks like a better place to relax than to shop. I won't think of shopping when I'm there. You got some beautiful photos!

  12. Oh what a neat lounge to unwind during a stressful shopping trip

  13. Wow! How classy and Christmasy. I love it and your kiddo certainly had some fun. I'm jealous of the hot chocolate!

  14. This is a card I can get behind! Fabulous!! I can't believe they will hang onto your coats and then packages after you've purchased them and THEY have wrapped them while you go shopping some more! I LOVE IT!

  15. This looks like an awesome place to shop. I love that you can take a break while shopping and leave your gifts somewhere so you don't have to haul them around.
