Just in time for the holidays, Lands' End's best-selling catalog items for women, men and kids will be available in more than 180 Sears stores in 10 select markets by December 1.
Shoppers in Atlanta; Boston; Chicago; Hartford, Conn.; Los Angeles; Madison, Wis.; New York; Philadelphia; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; and San Francisco now will have the chance to buy Lands' End favorites at their local Sears stores. Sears shoppers also can purchase the full assortment of Lands' End merchandise by instantly contacting Lands' End customer service representatives through an in-store catalog and phone kiosk.
"The holiday collection from Lands' End is a full assortment of classic, all-time favorites for the entire family," said Sid Mashburn, vice president, Lands' End Design. "Holiday shoppers will now have a more convenient shopping experience with the ability to purchase our most popular Lands' End gift items at their local Sears store."
The holiday collection will include colorful cotton drifter sweaters and cardigans, pinpoint oxfords, reversible down parkas, all weather moccasins and many other quality Lands' End apparel items for the family.
Superior Style Standouts
According to Mashburn, some of the Lands' End standouts of the season include plush cords, comfy outerwear and "all the rage" All Weather Mocs™.
Just in time for the annual family photo, Lands' End offers a variety of eye-catching, festive clothing options sure to make everyone smile. Moms, dads and kids will look cheery in Nordic-inspired red and white matching Snowflake Sweaters.
Another picture perfect, seasonal look for families is color-coordinated Lands' End Turtles. Outfit the entire group in the soft and seamless neck turtlenecks -- green for men, red for women and winter white for little angels.
Whether decked out in classic Flat Front Cords in an aqua blue hue or a Drifter Sweater in a shade of soft spruce, women and men can create an updated seasonal look.
Color is always a welcome addition to the dreary days of winter. When the temperatures fall, women, men and kids can take cover in Reversible Down Parkas. This fully-reversible, 650 fill goose down jacket is a warm, colorful and in-fashion choice for the entire family.
Also in-step with style, the All Weather Moc™ is a comfortable footwear option for women and men. The easy slide-on shoe is available in a rainbow of trend-right colors ranging from black and dark brown to garnet and sapphire. The Snow Flurry™ Boot for kids is sure to keep small snowbound feet warm, dry and colorful.
For women, the Lands' End collection will be available in regular, petite and women's sizes 1X-3X. For men, the collection will be available in sizes S-XXL. Sears also will offer Lands' End apparel for little kids (S-L) and big kids (S-XL).
Spring 2003 will bring new Lands' End favorites to more than 200 additional Sears stores, while a full roll out to remaining Sears stores is scheduled to continue through Fall 2003.
The Lands' End apparel line is the latest addition to the quality, stylish clothing now offered at Sears. Earlier this year, the retailer introduced Covington, an exclusive apparel collection that offers high-quality, classic styling with a fresh twist on color, pattern and fit for the family.
