Tarocash Sells Out Of Lime Green Ties, White Leather Shoes In Pre-Melbourne Cup Frenzy

CLANCY OVERELL | Editor | CONTACT

Every single TAROCASH outlet in Southern Victoria has today sold out of white leather shoes, lime green ties and several styles of grey-coloured shirts with black buttons, a spokesman from the retailer confirmed hours ago.

It is understood that the affordable menswear giant has put in an emergency order for up to eight different products, as the annual pre-Melbourne Cup frenzy has seen their stores swamped by people who plan on spending tomorrow in the general admission section of Flemington racecourse.

With thousands of Australians preparing to dress like one-punch-assault defendants tomorrow, the nation’s tried and true suburban retailer of glitzy racing attire has had to admit that they weren’t prepared.

“It’s very embarrassing,’ says designer and part time check-out attendant Ashley Kettle.

“We understand the role we play in Australian culture, and we should have been ready to accommodate for today’s rush.”

This news comes a month after Tarocash debuted their new luxury ‘General Admission At Rosehill’ Collection.

Described as a ‘wearable lifestyle for a versatile gentleman who enjoys alcopops’ – The collection hit national shelves on November 1.

With Melbourne Cup pre-drinks only 16 hours away, hundreds of punters have taken to Tarocash’s famous Hire-A-Look pop-up stores at an array suburban courthouses, where any offender can simply hire a suit for their appearance, before discreetly changing back into their Puma tracksuit as they leave.

“This is not good,” says one disgruntled punter, by the name of Kane.

“I just wanted to get an all-black suit to match my white Oakleys,”

DEAN RAY @ROMARACES

dean 7

WE HAVE ALWAYS LOVED DEAN – When he was Pritchy Ray, when he was the kid with the hot guitar skills, when he played guitar walking up and down our bar because too many people were talking and not dancing, and when he was just the muso from Chincilla.  He has been a Roma Races Favourite.

NOW THAT HE HAS THE X FACTOR , THE BOY FROM THE BUSH WILL RETURN TO HIS ROOTS ON NOVEMBER 22.  THANKS DEAN, THE BEER’S ON US SATURDAY NIGHT
