JC Penney event recap and giveaway!

A new JC Penney store opened up in Dallas last week, and I was invited to attend a special sneak preview last Friday. I'll admit that the last time I was in a JC Penney's was when my mom took me shopping for linens for my college dorm room, back in the Prehistoric era when dinosaurs roamed the earth. I remembered Penney's being a dark, cramped store with a certain whiff of abandonment and depression. So I wasn't sure what to expect as I left for the preview event.


If you're like me, you'll be pleasantly surprised with the changes JC Penney's has undergone in recent years. The store was bright and well-lit; aisles were easy to navigate; and the clothes and accessories did not disappoint.



JC Penney's has partnered with over 200 brands to offer affordable, on-trend pieces any woman would want in their wardrobe. Pieces from Olsenboyle, MNG by Mango, and I *Heart* Ronson gave me a serious case of the grabby hands.


If you're searching for budget-friendly shoes and handbags, Penney's Call It Spring line offers a collection of modern handbags and women's shoes with youthful style. Call It Spring is produced by the ALDO group, whose shoes and bags are always on-trend.


Another thing unique to JC Penney is their People StyleWatch collaboration. Every month, People StyleWatch editors handpick "must have" apparel and accessories that are identified with special signage throughout the store. Such as the camel cape below. Which made me swoon.


The JC Penney I toured also contain Sephora, a store-within-a-store feature that surprised me. Offered in more than 300 JC Penney locations, it features many of same high-end cosmetic, skincare, fragrance, bath and accessory products as in stand-alone Sephora stores. Sephora inside JC Penney are staffed by specially trained employees whom you can trust to help you with a cosmetic purchase.


And now, time for a giveaway! JC Penney provided me with a $25 gift card that can be used towards any purchase. The card is good both in store and online.

  9. I follow! I just put together a post about the MNG by Mango line at JCP and I had to think about the last time I was in a JCP store. I too think I was with my mom :). It seems that they are really reinventing themselves. I need to stop by the one {that I usually avoid} next time I am at the mall.

  17. Your JCPenny has such nicer/better stuff than mine!! The selection at mine is not so good. :(

    ReplyDelete
  18. JC Penney has some GREAT deals - Keep an eye on that cape - it will be marked down before you know it & it will be a steal. JCP.com also has some GREAT deals so log on & watch the price on something that you like on there also. Plus they will ship any item you order to the nearest store & than you don't have to pay for shipping.

    The iron headboard I bought last summer was marked down from $200 to $68 and I got it shipped for free to the local store :-)
