Festive season is just around the corner, with Teej and Rakshabandhan lined up, we have a lot of shopping to do. If you haven’t bought your dress for ‘Hariyali Teej’ already, well do it now because the festival is only a few days away.

Celebrating the essence of spring, ‘Hariyali Teej’ calls for a green garb and is a festival that women all around the hindi speaking North India wait for the entire year. Women wear everything new when they sit for the over-night pooja to mark the fact that they have a partner for life and a green dress signifies the prosperity of the relationship.

If you’re looking forward to Teej and all the new things you can buy this festive season, Shivakari Sangrah in Lucknow’s Indira Nagar is the place you need to be at.

Wearing green clothes and completing the necessary ‘16 makeup steps’ or the solah shringar is an essential part of the festivities.

While Teej is considered one of the holiest days for married women who pray straight through the night for the long-life and good health of their husbands, Rakshabandhan celebrates the bond a brother and sister share.

A festival of siblings Rakhshabandhan is a time when brothers and sisters both wear new clothes and get ready for a day of celebration. This day too, wearing new clothes has its own significance and we cannot deny the fact that each year we wait for the festival and the shopping that precedes it.

Shivakari Sangrah is the destination for you if what you require is an ethnic dress, a beautiful saree with an elegant drape or a salwar kameez which will surely make you the envy of others. The designs here are pretty fresh, elaborate, simple, ethnic and modern, whatever it is that you’re looking for, you’re sure to find something for yourself at the outlet.

Shivakari has just launched a new ‘festive collection’ with amazing options for both Teej and Rakshabandhan, so if you are looking for something fresh and unique Shivakari is the place for you.

So what are you waiting for? Head to the Shivakari Sangraha at Indira Nagar and get yourself the necessary “new dress” for Teej and Rakshabandhan.
