Lands’ End Passes the Test with Flying Colors #FirstDayFaves

Over the last few years, Lands End had become one of my absolute favorite brands.  For my family, it’s not just about style but also quality and Lands’ End is quality.  With 4 very active children, I need clothing and items that can withstand anything.  They are my go-to for Back to School basics.

20140828-512The Little Miss wears uniforms to school and  I stock up for the entire year with their School Uniform Girls’ Perfect Fit Plain Front Stain Resistant Chino Pants, School Uniform Girls’ Blend Chino Skort and their sweet Peter Pan collared shirts, both short and long sleeve.  With almost daily wear, these items truly stand up to everything she throws at them.  Some days I swear that her pants are goners after a battle in art and a day of fun in the fields, but all it needs a go in the wash and thanks to their special stain resistant fabric, they come out looking like new every time. Once a month she gets to dress down and this girl already has her first outfit selected, a cute summer dress from Lands’ End of course.

20140828-450This year is Marcus’ first FULL day of school and he is super excited! He’s had his book bag ready for weeks, sitting right at the door, ready to go. He’s loving that he still gets to wear anything he wants in Pre-Kindergarten and is looking cool in his Boys’ Long Sleeve Fleece Sherpa Hoodie paired with Classic Fit Iron Knee Jeans.  We love the Fleece Hoodie as it transitions well into fall and in his team color, BLUE!  The Iron Knee Jeans are made for boys like my Marcus who love to climb and jump.

We love, love, LOVE Lands’ End backpacks. Ava has had one every year since starting daycare at the age of 1. I love the quality and detail that goes into each bag. They literally last forever.  At the end of each year they still look brand new but we still like to let them get a new bag at the start of each school year. No matter what age group they are in, there is a book bag perfect for them.  Marcus in Pre-Kindergarten, got upgraded from the XS Classmate Backpack to a S Classmate Backpack.  With his severe allergies, he may need to pack his own lunch and that’s okay by us!  He got an awesome ClassMate Soft Sided Lunch Box with room for his water bottle and smaller zip pocket to carry his medications.  It even doubles as a great take along on short trips fo snacks.

Right now is the best time to stock up for Back to School.  I wait for this sale every year, their Labor Day Deal, 30% OFF your entire order with code PUMPKIN and pin 1606 If you’re an ebates member, get a 3% cash rebate, if not join now!
