Gymboree #MadeYouSmile – New styles in time for school!

This is a sponsored post.  Purchasing through our links is not required however when you do, we receive a small amount that supports our site.  

 

Gymboree Sale On Now!

Gymboree always takes strides to create new and fun clothing for kids, and just recently has re-branded with a new trendy product line for kids, just in time for school!  We have about a month here until school officially starts, so back to school shopping is definitely on the list.  Even as a homeschool mom, I enjoy refreshing my boys’ wardrobe fall as stores bring out fun new fall styles. 

Gymboree Smile Shirt - so adorable

The new line includes fun new graphic t-shirts and accessories, as well as multi-seasonal basics.  Pieces are designed to work together well, being mixed and matched as your kids please.  I just love these cute girl’s shoes!  There is a lot of 80s influence in the new styles, and I just love it!  My boys will love it as well as they are interested lately in 80s music (thanks to Guardians of the Galaxy!)  It’s so fun seeing them interested in something that takes me back to my own childhood. 

And this cardigan and skirt are absolutely adorable!  If I had a little girl, these would definitely be on our Back To School shopping list.  Honestly, I would take one of those sweaters as a staple fall piece for myself if it came in my size! 

One of my favorite features of the new line is how easily the pieces can be mixed and matched together.  If you take a look through the different tops, skirts, jeans, and other pieces, you’ll see that there is so much versatility. This is a great opportunity to let your kids pick their own clothes while not having to worry they’ll be totally mismatched.  My boys love picking out their own clothes – it gives them a sense of independence and makes them smile! 

Soon to be released is also a new “Made You Smile” mobile app with fun features, as well as weekly drawings into the Surprize Surprize Sweepstakes, which has some pretty awesome prizes!  You should be able to either download the app from the Apple Store or the Google Play Store, depending on what kind of phone you use. 

If you are a frequent Gymboree shopper, you will definitely want to make sure you are signed up for Gymboree Rewards!  For every dollar you spend, you’ll earn a point!  Once you accumulate 200 points, you will get a $10 reward.  You will also have exclusive access to offers and shopping events.  Head on over to sign up for Gymboree Rewards!

Gymboree also has an awesome GymBucks program – during earning periods, you can get $25 GymBucks for every $50 spent.  That’s an awesome deal! 

When you sign up for emails, you will get 20% off your next purchase as well.  This is also a great way to make sure you don’t miss out on future sales. 

I can’t wait to head into the store and check out the new line in person and see what my boys pick out!  What are some of your favorite pieces?

LuLaRoe – friend or foe?

This solid purple Irma from LuLaRoe is gorgeous!

 

Hey everyone!  I’ve been a little quiet lately due to a recent move.  We are finally getting settled in and back into our normal routines but it has been a rough ride!  In the past few months though, I’ve come across LuLaRoe clothing.  I had heard of the brand before and thought “I love leggings but really, what could be the big deal?”  

If you know me, you know I love shopping at thrift stores.  So it shouldn’t surprise you that my first piece of Lula was from Salvation Army of all places.  I found a pair of the popular LuLaRoe brand leggings and had to try them for myself.  A friend of mine had been raving about the brand and how amazingly soft everything was.  She was definitely right – the leggings were so soft!  And at $3, I couldn’t pass these up, even if they weren’t my favorite pattern.  I mean I love being comfy around the house anyways!  

After a few times of wearing my new leggings, I talked to my friend and found out there is more to LuLaRoe than just these “buttery” soft leggings.  They have shirts, dresses, kimonos, skirts, cardigans.. and it is all known to be comfortable yet cute.  After spending a couple weeks browsing and entering giveaways, and messaging back and forth with a consultant, I got to try a few more pieces.  

Now I’m hooked.  Yeah… at first I was ashamed but then I realized that I haven’t focused on a wardrobe for myself since before my kids were born.  I am starting to feel more confident and am building up a wardrobe for going back to work.  I feel great!  Fortunately I haven’t spent much, with my thrift store luck, but you will want to make sure your pocketbook is ready for your shopping if you start shopping through consultants.  The pieces are more expensive than I am used to (as a thrift store shopper especially) but are not too outrageous if you shop around. 

Sizing can be tricky but my favorite thing is that each piece can be worn several ways.  If a shirt is too big, it will still be totally amazing with a cute knot!  Too hot for leggings?  Roll them under to be capris!  

Life is too short to wear boring clothes - LuLaRoe

And patterns…oh there is quite a variety of prints you will find!  Some are super cute, and some aren’t for me, but there’s really something for everyone. 

As you get to know LuLaRoe, you will learn a variety of terms.  OS (one size…leggings..), TC (tall & curvy…leggings), and Unicorn (hard to find item/print, or simply one you’d love to find).  And most items are named after members of the founder’s family.  There’s even one with my name..Dani!  It’s a tank style dress… I can’t wait to try one sometime!

If you are interested but don’t have a lot of money, you can offer to host a party for a consultant, either online or in-home.  After a certain number of items sell, you can receive rewards (free items, discounts, etc) that you pre-arrange and agree to with the consultant.  

And if you aren’t interested in hosting a party, you will find thousands of LuLaRoe Facebook groups to shop and party with!  Giveaways are around every corner as well, for both new and loyal customers.  

There are a lot of “Debbie downers”, and with every multi level marketing company, there will be complaints on the consultant side, but it seems like I’ve met a lot of happy consultants. But as a shopper, I’m happy with my experience so far. 

Just remember to watch your pocket book – these items can add up quickly! 

So LuLaRoe… friend or foe?  I say friend! 

 

LuLaRoe is so comfy and stylish - love it!
