I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Carter’s. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating. All opinions expressed are my own.
You all know that I am a shopper at heart, so you may be as surprised as I was to find out how unaware I was of two things. The first thing is that Carter's sells clothing up to a size 6x for girls and size 7 for boys. I always thought that, once my children passed the toddler and preschool stages, they were done with clothing from Carter's. I was mistaken! The second thing I learned is that there is a Carter's Babies and Kids retail location not too far from us. Once I got over the shock of my lack of knowledge, we ventured out to pay a visit to our local store.
I was pleased to find a huge sale going on when we arrived at the store. This, along with the Carter's Friends & Family Event coupon in my wallet, made me even more excited to shop for our nearly 7 year old twins!
The Carter's store was divided by age groups and gender. The girls' section was full of cheerful brights and pastels. My favorite section was the denim for girls, which came in skinny and boot cut in a variety of washes. My philosophy is that a girl can never have too many pairs of jeans!
Since our daughter is a daddy's girl, we bought her not one, but two graphic tees that let the world know it. We also found two pairs of skinny jeans, one in a faded denim wash and the other in a pastel.
The boys clothing did include some bright colors and pastels, but there were also plenty of choices for neutral colored pieces.
I ended up choosing a graphic tee, a graphic thermal, and three pairs of pull-on cargo pants for our son. He was thrilled because, even though he looks so cute in them, he dislikes wearing jeans.
Now, if I have you wondering whether you have a Carter's store near you, you can find out by using their store locator.
Before you shop, you must remember 3 things! First, be sure to print the Carter's Friends & Family Event coupon below to save 25% off your purchase (some exclusions apply). This coupon expires on December 24th, 2013.
TO PRINT: Be sure that your printer is on and ready to print. Click the image below to enlarge. Then right-click on the image and choose print. Use your browser's back arrow to return to this page.
The second thing you need to remember is to checkout the enormous amount of clearance merchandise in the store. Even though the coupon does not apply to clearance items, it is very much worth a look. The third thing you should remember is, if you are not a Carter's Store Rewards Member, you should sign up while you're in the store. I did and received $10 in rewards for every $50 I spent. I spent a little over $100 on clothing for end-of-winter and springtime and received $20 in rewards that I will be returning to use after the Holidays.
A few other things you may not know about Carter's stores . . .
- There are building blocks, wooden puzzles, and other wooden toys in-store to help keep your children occupied.
- The store carries Melissa & Doug toys, making it possible to shop for infant, toddler, and kids clothing, as well as toys, all in one stop.
- The stores also sell children's shoes up to a size 12.
Remember, if you shop, come back and tell me all about what you purchased!
