Kohl’s Back to School 2012 Deals and a $100.00 Gift Card Giveaway

Pictured: Effortless & Affordable Chic from Rock and Republic for Kohl’s via the collarless top $44.00 US

If you’re getting ready to head back to school, it may be about that time to look around stock up on essentials from clothing and electronics to college dorm room decorations, or even furnishings or decor your first apartment, you need to check out what’s new at Kohl’s.  Kohl’s sent me a back to school kit with samples of all the cool stuff they have in their stores.  I’m here to tell you, it’s a VERY impressive mix, truly a one stop shopping place for getting ready for school.  Here’s a little bit about what’s in stock. Read on, and at the end of this post, enter to win a $100.00 gift card from Kohl’s to get ready to go back to school. Check out the back to school stuff that Kohl’s has:

Fashions for tweens, teens and young adults:  My Kohl’s back to school kit has samples of clothing from their Lauren Conrad line, Rock and Republic, Candie’s and ELLE fashion items. The items run the gamut from sequined tops to casual colored denim and hoodies. Literally, there is something for every taste.  The Lauren Conrad LC line is more feminine and girly, as is some of the Candie’s stuff.  You can browse the different looks and decide what works best for you. I know my little niece adores the Candie’s and LC stuff. A new addition to Kohl’s is the Vera Wang Princess collection, which is more casual but still good looking. The Rock and Republic stuff is a bit more adult and sophisticated, perfect for college girls looking for clothing that is a bit more upscale but not too expensive.

Candie’s separates for a flirty look
Princess Vera Separates for layered looks

Beyond fashion, Kohl’s has plenty of other items for students to get ready for school, including:
  • Stylish Dorm Room Essentials
  • Organization Tools in the form of desk set and stylish storage containers
  • Electronics and Electrics including iPad cases, keypads and alarm clocks
  • Cook wear from their Food Network line  for avoiding the school cafeteria or pricey meals out

In short, Kohl’s has all the back to school essentials and convenient one stop shopping so you don’t have to wonder from store to store at the mall.  Now that I’ve told you what’s new in at Kohl’s it’s time to play social media giveaway!  We’re using Rafflecopter for this Giveaway.  This giveaway is open from now until July 21st at midnight EST.  Click on the Rafflecopter widget link below to enter.  Simply log-in with your email or your Facebook ID to the widget to enter.
