Last week we flew out to Justice Headquarters in Columbus OH for a whirlwind 27 hours of fun for a preview of their new back-to-school line and a huge makeover that the stores just went through. They are now offering fashions for every girl, every day at noticeably lower prices. This post is a sponsored post partnership with Justice and my girls were thrilled to be a pat of it (I was too!).
Not so bright, but very early in the morning we left home for an adventure to Ohio.
We have a huge list of places on our travel wish list and sadly Ohio wasn't on it. The saddest part is that it really should have been. Since Pete grew up in Pennsylvania he's been to Ohio plenty of times. He said he didn't think to add it to the list because it's so much like Pennsylvania in a lot of ways and he never even thought much about it.
I am so glad that we did end up visiting, despite it not being on the list, because it is one of our favorite trips this year. The people were so friendly. Holding doors open, saying “hi” to each other and tons of smiles. We felt so happy during our stay. It's also so green! Coming from a drought ridden San Diego, seeing green grass and trees was like a dream!
When we landed we were swept away to our hotel to relax for a few moments and then it was off to dinner with some of the Justice Executives. We got the chance to know them better and learn about their passion for providing girls clothes that help “every girl every day” feel their best.
Every moment of our time spent with Justice was magical and I loved hearing them talk about their “girl”. They truly feel a connection with each of their customers and they consider them like their own daughters or little sisters. They want the best for them and they want them to feel and look their best at all times.
After dinner we headed down to the pool.
Em's never been in an indoor pool so she was thrilled. We heard her say “best day of my life” about 50 times over the next day…
When we got back up to our room we found some surprises waiting for us!
Adorable Justice backpacks filled with goodies and cookies! This totally got us excited for our visit to headquarters the next day!
First thing the next morning the girls and I were on a bus and ready for a fun day!
Em is wearing a new Justice combo scarf/shawl. You can wrap it around your neck or wear it with your arms through it. Genius I tell you! I also learned that all their bras have the ability to change to razor backs. I wish they made those for adults too. Such a smart idea and a great way to help girls feel comfortable in all the clothes they wear.
There were a lot of selfies taken with the new selfie sticks that the girls got in their surprise back packs!
We also had the opportunity to learn about the new changes coming to Justice that are going to make shopping for our daughters more fun and save us some money too!
Their new new look is full of excitement, energy and fun. Just like our girls!
Their new offers are straightforward with easy-to-understand savings. There won't be anymore coupon deals or 40% off the store, so you won't have to do anymore math in the store while trying to shop. I know it wasn't a lot of math that was required, but I'm just happy about this change because it will really simplify shopping with the girls. It was had to keep track of three kids and calculate the cost of a shirt.
They will have awesome “Style Buys” too, which are a special collection of gotta-have-it styles at smart prices. Like $20 jeans! Ashley loves thier jeans and these are great prices!
All of their new styles are about celebrating our daughters. It's about what makes you, you!
You can see all the excitement on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #EveryGirlEveryDay
We started our day with breakfast and then we got to hang out with these two amazing Justice Designers! We were really surprised at just how many people it takes to create great clothing!
Then it was off to have a look behind the scenes… and Em tried on a few up and coming releases…
I had to show this off to you all… the glitter books! How fun would it be to get to be the person in charge of picking the glitter? Best job ever!
When Maddie was in elementary school she had a uniform.
Not a school mandated one, nope, one that she created. It was Justice jeans, a Justice undershirt and one of these Justice soft shirts. She had every color and it really showed off her personality. When we saw this we had to stop and get a picture of her with them all! So many memories! I hope Em creates the same uniform!
Imagine a huge “closet” the size of a house. Now imagine getting to walk though and see all the styles Justice has created over the years. That is where these happy grins came from…
And then it was the moment we've all been waiting for… the fashion show!
So many awesome new styles and something for every girl to express their own personality.
And then it was time to say goodbye to our new friends and head home!
The girls and I will be stopping by a local store soon for our own shopping experience and to share more about the new store makeover (think wider isles, stroller friendly) and better pricing!
Even Pete came along for the trip!
