While in NYC recently I had the fabulous opportunity to attend Lands' End Night School. I, along with 100 or so other bloggers, all piled into school buses to get shipped off to school.
We each received a report card and our mission at school was to complete 4 kids courses and 4 adult courses. If we received an A+ in every course our report card would be marked as a PASS!
For the kid courses we learned about Lands' End products for
back-to-school. We saw a cool demo of the new invisible Iron Knee patch
in kids' everyday pants that makes them last longer specifically in the
place that usually wears out the most quickly - the knee! It has gone
through lots of testing including 50 washes and professional abrasion
We also learned about backpacks and safety tips including how to determine correct
size of backpack based on each kid’s height and weight.
The next part was extra-fun. We got
to play professional stylist by designing a perfect First Day outfit for a boy
or girl. We had lots of fall fashions to
choose from, complete with shoes, bags and accessories. This is my creation. Please do me a favor and head over to the
Lands’ End Facebook page and give it a quick “like” or leave a comment. THANKS!
Next, we headed to lunchtime, where we watched celebrity chef Sam Talbot
prepare easy lunch recipes. (Although I
think many were too busy watching the chef – he’s a hottie- rather than
watching the recipes!) We also got to
meet with reps from sponsor Happy Family and find out about their Happy Tot and
Happy Munchies for healthy back-to-school snacks.
Next it was time for the Adult courses!
These included getting all dolled up with a new hairdo by stylists from Warren Tricomi,
as well as quickie make-up makeovers from Revlon. Then it was time to check out clothing for
grown-ups as we got to try on two of the new Lands’ End dresses for fall and
select our favorite style and color.
This is the dress I chose - in case you're wondering, it's the 3/4-sleeve Crepe Jersey Gathered Surplice Dress. I can’t wait to get it in the mail!
I had a great time at Lands' End Night School! It was a wonderful way to not only have fun with fellow
bloggers, but to learn about Lands’ End and get great ideas for back-to-school.
