Amberley On the road to

Sally Mac’s Sally MacDonald, owner of Sally Mac’s women’s wear store in Amberley, often says she sells not only women’s clothing, but also fashion!

This well-stocked store carries far more choice than you might expect – a comprehensive range of smart, casual and classic fashion, for any and every occasion.

For many women, the well-known store on the main road in Amberley is a welcome blend of practical ‘fashion that works’, with down-to-earth, honest advice from Sally and her staff, and a riot of colour.

The team at Sally Mac’s are passionate about jeans that fit real women. “Jeans that fit are a ‘must-have’ in your wardrobe all year round,” says Sally. The great new jeans from Toorallie Australia have the bonus of 17% merino wool added to the stretch cotton, making them fantastic for warmth and comfort in winter, without being too hot in summer.

While Sally Mac’s has always stocked colour, current trends are awash with it – plains, prints, stripes, textures. So, whether it’s sharp citrus, cool blue, or hot pink you love, Sally Mac’s, in the heart of Amberley, is the store for you. In winter, a superb selection of New Zealand-made merino, in various weights suitable for our variable weather, and for the warmer months, plenty of comfortable options for the heat!

As well as the merino-denim Toorallie jeans, Sally Mac’s also stock Tre Bliss, NYDJ, Alibi, and Staggers, sizes 8 to 20, in a variety of colours and styles. “We are happy to spend time with you, making sure that your bum looks great in your jeans!” says Sally. Sally Mac’s – open 5½ days, selling the kind of clothes most women wear, most of the time.

Location Pegasus Golf & Sports Club is located within the town of Pegasus, on the edge of Pegasus Bay and just 25 kilometers north of Christchurch. Occupying an area of 80 hectares and forming a landmark entranceway to the town of Pegasus, Pegasus Golf & Sports Club is an 18-hole championship golf course located three minutes’ drive from the beach and within walking distance of the centre of Pegasus.

Recognised for the variety of shrubs and trees including deciduous azaleas, rhododendrons, lilacs, roses, maples, magnolias and conifers. These collections are nestled in manicured lawns and surrounded by mature trees. The Domain also has a comprehensive playground, a paddling pool, barbeque areas and plenty of picnic spots alongside 21 hectares of recreational sports grounds for the active. Just off State Highway 1 south of Ashburton known as the “Hidden Treasure of Ashburton District” is an area of 125 hectares of parkland called the Tinwald Domain.

By the 1920s Caroline Bay had a wide reputation as an attractive summer holiday destination. The expanding beach area and facilities attracted growing numbers of tourists. By the late 1930s, other facilities such as tearooms, a hall, saltwater baths and a modern sound shell were in place. Summer carnivals were held and got into full swing in the 1950s as an annual event running over a number of days. Throughout the Twentieth Century the sea’s action continued to deposit sand on the beach. By the 1990s, about a century after the beach began to form, the sea was several hundred metres east of it’s original level. The sea’s gift continues to grow. A large area of land has been reclaimed and turned into a range of recreational areas. Image courtesy of the South Canterbury Museum
