LISTEN up mums and daughters. Do you fancy a bit of pampering in time for Mother's Day? Then head over to Selfridges at the Trafford Centre or Exchange Square in Manchester on Saturday, March 14 for the stores' annual Mother's Day event.

Between 12 noon and 6pm, there's a selection of gifts and treats to be enjoyed at the Beauty Halls.

It promises to be an afternoon of beauty treatments, complimentary consultations, live entertainment and the services of an engraver for free with purchases of 100ml fragrance.

Tickets are £10, redeemable against any purchases — ask a member of staff in store or phone 0161 838 0610 to book.

Many of the beauty counters will be hosting mini makeovers, or even a blow dry or mini massage during the afternoon, but as these are usually very popular, booking in is advised.

Nars is one of the beauty brands which does a fabulous make-over that comes highly recommended. It allows you to experience a cross section of their products, both skincare and make-up. Emily Bond from Bury is the assistant manager at Nars at the Trafford Centre store, and a highly talented make-up artist to boot — her eyeliner application skills are unsurpassed. Emily said she is looking forward to the Mother's Day event, which is always a busy time in store, with lots of women having fun, trying out new looks and products.

Anybody spending more than £150 at the event will receive a beautiful complimentary flower posy by David Wayman to take home.

What's more, there's a complimentary glass of Prosecco waiting for everyone.

If you start to feel a little peckish, Farmacia Del Dolce, the patisserie, ice cream parlour and café inside the Exchange Square store, will be offering a variety of indulgent afternoon teas, from traditional cream to luxurious Champagne, in addition to their usual menu.

Great present picks for Mother's Day at the stores include the mouth-watering Selfridges Selection Biscuit (£7.99), Aspinal of London The Marylebone calf leather compact mirror (£45) and Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir cologne (£82).
