Wouldn’t it be funny if—on a day when I’m more or less snowed in, in Georgia (of all places)—I held a giveaway for clothing suited to wearing in the sun? I think that’d be hilarious, actually.
Thanks to our pals at Lands’ End, irony can be mine, and cool sunwear can be yours!
Here’s the deal: Lands’ End is proud to introduce their new Sun.Life™ line of clothing—comfortable, breathable clothes with UPF ratings of 30 to 50, to block the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and keep you cool and fashionable while they do it. And when it comes to family sun protection, whom do we moms tend to worry about? That’s right: the kids.
The winner of this contest will choose to receive one of the following items: Boys’ pants, girls’ pants, boys’ shorts, girls’ shorts, boys’ t-shirt, or girls’ t-shirt. If you want to enter, first review the contest rules and regulations, then come back here and leave a comment telling me which clothing item you choose, by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, March 4th, 2009. You don’t need to tell me which size or color—I’ll get that info from you if you win—but you do need to pick which of the six choices you’d like. One entry per person, valid email address required, entries left after the deadline (and there are always plenty of those) will not be valid.
Winner to be determined by random number generation and general sunniness of disposition.
