I was planning to go back to school shopping this past weekend, but I thought it was tax-free shopping weekend. I chose to stay home and avoid the crazy crowds that wait to shop this weekend. I was wrong. Tax free weekend is actually this weekend, so I guess I will be staying home again, but that is totally ok with me. Baby is the only one that needs back to school shoes, and I already know what I am going to buy for her thanks to an enjoyable evening out with fellow bloggers last Sunday at Famous Footwear. My friends and I were invited to a Back to School Blogger event to preview all the new cool and stylish trends, and to shop Famous Footwear’s big BOGO (Buy One Get One) 1/2 off sale.
I wasted no time strolling around the store. I love shoe shopping. Sandal shopping is best with a fresh pedicure, but I was here to check out more than sandals. Sassy boat shoes were everywhere! Astro-bright colors, patters, think nautical styles with a lively twist! But don’t rule out traditional greys, blacks, and taupe are certianly plentiful as well. Lace-up boots and booties just scream for Fall weather to get here, and don’t even get me started on the cuteness of the superhero themed sneakers. Jed would flip for these Batman sneakers. I can picture him now zipping around the house in them, wearing his Batman shirt and attached cape!
There were a ton of Classic athletic styles, but it’s obvious you can’t go wrong with Chucks! Super cute layered styles, bright colors, and even stripes are available to help you make your own personal fashion statement. Famous Footwear’s big BOGO (Buy One Get One) 1/2 off sale even includes the great assortment of backpacks. You can mix and match shoes with backpacks to score your 50% off the second item. Don’t see a second pair of shoes or a backpack when you are shopping? No worries. Save your receipt, and come back at another time within the sale time frame, and Famous Footwear will honor the BOGO discount when you make your purchase. You really can’t go wrong.
Famous Footwear offers brand name shoes at affordable prices. They offer a full selection to satify and an easy experience for moms to come in and get shoes for the entire family. I scored a major victory moment when I found these adorable cork bottom wedges on the clearance rack. And I didn’t stop there! I found another pair of pretty flip flops for Baby also on clearance. Famous Footwear’s BOGO (Buy One Get One) 1/2 off sale is even valid on the clearance racks! Seriously sweet deal people! I love a good shoe bargain!
What really made the event special though was watching a round of Famous Footwear’s Shoe Crazy race. Three bloggers each had the opportunity to race around the store grabbing as many shoes as they could in 30 seconds. It was a riot! The fab ladies got to keep the shoes, AND Famous Footwear donated the value of all the shoes to their local that supports kids with back-to-school clothing and supplies. Thanks to some super speedy ladies, $784 was donated for supplies! Wahooo!
It was a fun evening, and I am glad I was able to participate, and spend some time with Amy from Render Me Mama, Krystyn from Really, Are you Serious? Lindsey from Redhead Baby Mama, Tracy from The Uncoordinated Mommy, and a quite a few others too! It was a pretty packed house. Now all I need to do, is find a small window of time to get back to the store, and buy some more shoes! Anybody know where I can find a day with 28 hours or so in it before school starts this week?
Where do you find the best deals when shopping for back to school items?
