Have y’all ever been to the Kentucky Derby? I haven’t but have wanted to go for like ever! Big hats speak to my soul and sun dresses are my love language; put that together with horse races and food and I am all in. The Kentucky Derby is certainly on my bucket list! I often think what I would wear if I went; so today I am teaming up with Cottonelle to bring you some Kentucky Derby Style. You may be thinking to yourself “Ok, Ange… What the heck does Cottonelle have to to with style and the derby!” Well I will tell you! Cottonelle is upping the ante at this year’s Kentucky Derby and launching “The Cottonelle Great Finish,” a giveaway that will reward Americans with a year supply of Cottonelle products should the No. 1 and No. 2 positioned racehorses place in that order during the race. A year supply of TP?!? Sign me up! One of the biggest parts of the derby is the fashion so there is no way I could let it go by without showing y’all what I would wear if I was going!
A cool part of this year’s Kentucky Derby will be the Green Room Sponsorship: Before celebrities hit the red carpet and the races, they first stop in the green room to relax and freshen up. Cottonelle will be on-hand in what they’re dubbing the “Clean Room” with refreshments, a hair and makeup touch-up/refresh station and a fun opportunity to chat with Cherry. I can definitely see this being a huge hit since everyone needs that moment to freshen up, especially when you’re all dressed up and in the hot sun showing off your fab outfits!
How would you get ready for the Derby? Would you rock the sundress and heels? Big ol’ sunglasses? Are you a white glove kind of gal? Would you look for inspiration from celebrities? I love looking at all the celebs and what they wore, however I often find myself thinking; “How do they stay so fresh looking?” it’s hot and you’re walking all around. I must not be the only one! As part of a partnership with daytime talk show “Bethenny,” Cherry will be spending her day mingling with celebs to find out how they get red carpet ready – all as part of a show segment giving a sneak peek inside the Derby. Cottonelle is doing big things this year!
Of course, we wouldn’t expect Cottonelle to head to the derby without actually giving us ladies a little help in the bathroom, right? I know from concerts and festivals bathrooms as these large venues are usually a scary place to venture into. They’re also having a Terrace Level Bathrooms Sponsorship: With more than 165,000 people attending the Kentucky Derby each year, the bathrooms are nearly as trafficked as the betting windows. Cottonelle is upgrading the bathroom experience onsite, providing Cottonelle TP and flushable cleansing cloths across the bathrooms giving attendees the opportunity to get clean and fresh while at the race. I for one, appreciate that!
Can’t attend the derby & still want to get in on the action? Cottonelle has you covered! You can sign up at the Cottonelle landing page. The first 15,000 entrants to sign up will be awarded a year’s supply of Cottonelle toilet paper and flushable cleansing cloths if the outcome aligns.
