Giveaway: Land's End Back Packs are Synonymous with Back-To-School!

Thursday, August 21, 2008

Have you seen the back to school line this year over at Lands End? Slammin. I didn't know what to do with myself over there, the sweaters and tights and shoes... oh my. They have the richest colors, great quality fabrics I can wash a million times and they never thread, and this year the clothes for little girls ( and boys of course) offers the cutest selection ever. However, before I go off on one of my Lands End tangents over here, I want to talk to you about their brilliant idea in back packs.

Land's End Class Matetm and Junior ClassMatetm back packs are not your regular packs. The Junior Back Pack is sized for smaller kids, 4-7, but trust me, it will still hold all their library books, school gear, workbooks, and projects as they return from school. Sophia and I stuffed hers full of books off her shelf, stuck all her pencils and marker boxes in it, practiced zipping and unzipping it, and gave hers quite a pounding to test it out. Results? I love this pack. The Classmate tm is for ages 7 and up and even has compartments for a CD/MP3 player and CDs.

ClassMate™ packs are doubly durable where it counts—the bottom. It happens all the time with some packs—halfway through the year the bottom blows out. Not so with ClassMate. Maybe that's because in addition to the extra-tough bottom, they double-stitch all seams for a long life. Comfort features include padded c-shaped shoulder straps that fit kids better, and a padded lumbar panel that cushions their back. The Junior Back Packs were ranked as "Best for ages four to seven" by Real Simple Family Fall 2007 magazine!
Head over to Land's End and check out these packs for yourself. Right now they are on sale, so hurry! Make sure you get the matching lunch sacks ( so cute in pink I can't even tell you) which are also on sale right now. And the grey area is reflective for safety. You can't go wrong with this pack.

Want one for your little scholar? Land's End has generously provided a gorgeous Red ClassMatetm for a back to school giveaway. If you are like me, you waited till the last minute to get your kid's their packs for school didn't you? Ok then enter this contest, because when school starts? The contest stops!

How to Win: Go over to Lands End and check out their entire site. This can include their packs, girls outfits, swim suits, jeans, pull overs, canvas totes, shoes, boy's things, etc. (You can also buy their products at Sears, did you know that?) Build a "wish list" of a few of your favorite products Lands End provides. Throw it in a comment...... and you are entered, Folks! The winner will be pulled on Sophia's first day of KINDERGARDEN - SEPTEMBER 3rd by random selection.Here's what ya' win! Good Luck!

It is so hard to pick from this site. I love their school backpacks, their luggage, the clothes for women-which is now coming in larger sizes. My sons have worn Lands End shirts for years. Their sweaters are always of good quality. The backpack looks great.

Love their diaper bags, winter jackets for my boys, tote bags and lunch bags. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Colleen said...

I love Land End stuff! My absolute favorite are the climber jeans for boys because they are so tough and durable, which is a must for an active little boy that loves to climb! I also love their fleece pullovers for boys as well as mocs for the whole family. Those are so comfy! Looking at the site reminded me I need to replace the pair that has finally worn out after several years.

uzma said...

I am always checking out the Land's End stuff at Sears but looking at their website is even better. The variety is much better and the prices are really fair for the quality of the products they sell. I am totally digging the girls shoes and I am going to go to Sears and see if they have the shoes there so I can have Madihah try some on for size and then order from the site. I especially like the Kids' Embroidered Mary Jane Shoes in the chocolate color. It is absolutely adorable. I am also drooling over the outfits they have on the site. The backpack looks great and thanks so much for the contest! Good luck to Sophia on her first day of Kindergarten...from Madihah!

I would get the Women's Terrain Mary Jane shoes for myself, probably in a few different colors.

A new trellis quilt for the bed would be next, and a stripe ottoman insert and cover.

Finally I would get some girls' tights and sweaters. I particularly like the intarsia sweaters and the Fair Isle mock-neck sweaters.

Lands End gets me in so much trouble. I love how their clothes fit and how they last, both for me and the kids. Did you see the tights that they sell?! It's so hard to find good, cute tights these days. When I was a kid, we had tights for every outfit! I love the Girls' Stripe Pattern Tights in lavender stripes and the Pearl Pink Butterflies tights. I'm so sad that they don't have the
"Lands' End Girls' Applique Corduroy Skort" in my daughter's size :(

(and my son starts kindergarten tomorrow too! good luck!)
