$100 Kohl's gift card giveaway—and hot fall picks


I think it was my friend Betsy the Bargain Fiend who first introduced me to kohls.com, sponsor of this giveaway. For three years now, I've been doing almost all of the the kids' back-to-school and spring clothes shopping there. I love it not just because I can shop at 11:30 p.m., but because the clothes are totally cute and good quality. There's always some sort of sale going on, and free standard shipping with a $75 purchase. Browsing is easy—you can search by type of clothes, size, brand, occasion, color, price and trend. Max likes the site because he got his Cars 2 underwear fix there, except he's grown out of them. Tragic, I know.

Sabrina's new favorite sport is shopping. She is always finding stuff she wants to get online, and showing it to me on her computer screen. So she loved sitting down together to pick out some new fall stuff. Max, being a boy (and being a boy who only cares about Cars 2 merchandise) is glad to let me be his personal shopper. Happily, the purple obsession has died down which has vastly expanded our gear repertoire.

Check out the kids' picks, then enter to win a $100 gift card.

Some Max selects:

A boy's gotta have khakis. 

"Addy! Addy!"
(Translation: Daddy has one just like this and I love it when we dress alike.)

I got this for Max in four colors—it's sturdy cotton and studly. 

"I'm going to be a chick magnet in this!"
(OK, Max did not actually say that because he is far too modest.)

Not from the fall line, but timelessly appealing.

Some Sabrina selects:

"I'm wearing this on the first day of school! And everyone's gonna like it!"

"I love jeans and I like them in my jacket!"
"Ohhhh! They're soooooo cute!"
Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star Shoe


"I thought about getting the purple one but I think Max might want to wear it even though he's not that into purple anymore but who knows! Orange is good cause I won't have to hide it!"
Mudd Lace-Sleeved Top

"Mommy said to get this because she says it is a good reminder so next time I am acting angry I can just look down at my chest."

AND NOW...
HOW TO ENTER TO WIN A $100 KOHL'S GIFT CARD

Leave a comment below about what you're loving on kohls.com for your kid, or just what kind of clothes your kid most needs for fall. You can get additional extra entries with Twitter and Facebook follows. The giveaway ends on August 22 at 12:00 a.m. (see "Terms and Conditions" for more information). The gift card can be used online or in stores. Good luck!

  47. Frankly I have come to do most of our clothes shopping at Goodwill... however... I am a huge fan of shopping Kohls' clearance racks. I've been doing it ever since I was a kid. We come out of there with some sweet deals for the whole family!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Love that Kohl's brands have coordinating colors so my 5-year-old triplet boys can look sharp for back to school.

  59. My little man needs an entire new wardrobe (today is his first birthday!) for the fall - he grew up so quickly, and nothing from the past year fits him. Being a single mom is really tough when it comes to affording clothes and diapers, and Kohls prices are great when I am trying to keep to a budget!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Kohl's is awesome. They're the only place that we've found shoes that are wide enough to fit my son's feet. Also. Ellen, I have to ask. Are you gonna be really mad if we copy you and get the Ninja shirt for Tucker because I LOVE IT! EEEP!

  86. They have awesome sales on kids clothes throughout the year. Both my kids wear the same size now so they can share :)Not sure about pants for the fall so I think that is going to be our biggest challenge. They could also both use some new (bigger) socks and of course, new underwear for the newly potty-trained one ;)

  120. My daughter is only a year old but she holds up different clothes and babbles something while looking at it. If she babbles for a particularly long time I will buy because she liked it . I think. Khols is awesome because I don't feel judged by the employees as I let my daughter lay waste to the kids section. Then we pick up the mess and she chats as she is hanging.

  136. Oh goodness, if I look for specific picks I'll just frustrate myself, I think! But, what Ash most needs for the autumn are blue jeans, black cords, warm PJs, new socks, new sneakers, at least one more flannel plaid button down sort of deal, and a couple more long-sleeved undershirts good for layering. That's not much, right?

    Oy.
