Fitness Gear for Winter!


It’s easy to slip into hibernation mode this time of year. But if you’re like me, you know it’s important to stay active. Check out our merchants and find everything you need to support your active lifestyle during these chilly months!

Sports Authority is a go-to destination if you need ski gear. They’ve got everything from skis and boots to coats and hoodies. Take a look at the SALOMON Women’s Quest performance ski boot. It’s a lightweight, all-mountain model designed both for great performance on the slopes and easy walking when you take a hot cocoa break.

If you’re looking for ski apparel, check out the Women’s Amore Down Jacket from The North Face. The waterproof, breathable construction whisks away moisture and keeps out the cold and the down filling keeps  you nice and toasty. The slightly fitted design makes for a stylish look – no bulky marshmallow coats here!

Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten the guys! REI has the gear and apparel the guys love, like the REI Revelcloud Hoodie Jacket. Its PrimaLift Eco synthetic microfiber insulation keeps in the warmth just like down but makes for a lightweight fit. And it’s designed to keep out moisture and wind. Perfect for enjoying the great outdoors all winter long!

You don’t have to endure cabin fever this year! Shop with our merchants and find all the great gear and apparel you need to help you stay active – and earn money for your school!

Stylish Holiday Gifts!

gift 4

Over the years, some of my favorite holiday gifts have fallen under the apparel category – cozy sweaters, cute blouses, trendy skirts. But it’s not just us girls who love new clothes – guys like to look sharp, too. During the holiday season, our merchants have some great offers on apparel for both men and women. And if you shop with us, you’ll earn money for your school!

Check out Eddie Bauer. They’re offering free shipping on all orders over $49 when you shop before December 19. And they’ve got some fantastic items, like men’s wrinkle-free dress shirts. I have an uncle who swears by these shirts. Their fancy anti-wrinkle technology keeps them looking freshly pressed even when you stuff them into your duffel or dig them out from the back of your closet.

And take a look at Eddie Bauer’s parkas for women. They come in several different styles and colors, so you can pick the one that’s just right for the fashionista on your list. With fleece-lined collars and pockets and goose down insulation, these parkas are both functional and stylish.

Head on over to Nordstrom for more great deals on apparel. Take advantage of their Designer Sale and save up to 40% on items from designers like Michael Kors, Oscar de la Renta and Dolce & Gabbana. You’ll find impressive savings on hot products like the classic and versatile Samantha Skinny Tropical Wool Pants from Michael Kors. Their lightweight wool is great for winter, spring or fall and their tailored fit is both trendy and professional.

It’s not always easy to find great gifts, but we’ve got you covered! Shop with our merchants and find stylish apparel that’s perfect for everyone on your list.

Ballet flats are the trend that just won’t die – they’re popular year after year. And why not, they’re fashionable and comfy! At, you’ll find savings on flats like the Women’s Fulton Moc from Michael Kors. They’re definitely a staple of any fashionista’s wardrobe.

A great pair of boots can really pull together a winter outfit – and UGG Australia is the undisputed king of boots. These boots are as cozy as house slippers but they look great with more than PJ’s. Check out styles like the Ugg Women’s Classic Tall Boot. They go with jeans or skirts and the fleece lining keeps toes toasty while absorbing moisture.

If you’re looking for something sparkly, check out the Women’s Devin pump from Jessica Simpson. All-over sequins make these shoes the perfect addition to a dressy New Year’s ensemble and a platform toe makes them easier on the ankles.

Cosmetics and skincare products from Sephora are always popular. I enjoy browsing the aisles and sampling new products. If your lady is a Sephora fan, take a look at the fantastic Fired Up cosmetics set from bareMinerals. It includes four shades of eye shadow – darker shades for smoky eyes and lighter tones for a fresh faced look. It also comes with lip gloss, eye liner, eyelid primer, blush, a mini blush brush, an eye shadow applicator and a stylish gold makeup bag. Plus, bareMinerals products are skin friendly because they’re made without parabens, sulfates or phthalates.

Shopping for a lady who loves her mani-pedis? Check out the Nailed It! collection of nail polishes from Sephora by OPI. It includes Sephora’s top 10 best-selling colors in mini – the perfect size to fit in a purse! From glitz and glitter to elegant matte colors, there’s something for everyone in this collection.

Macy’s has great gifts for women, too. Treat the lady in your life to a gorgeous, new handbag like the Hamilton Quilted Tote from Michael Kors. The quilted style is classic and goes well with any wardrobe. Stud accents and chain-link detailing add extra flare.
