Back-to-School Finds at Colorado Mills Mall + $500 Gift Card Giveaway

In less than one week my kids will be starting school! I can’t believe it. Where did the summer go? Instead of having fun by the pool, our week has been filled with appointments, and of course, lots of shopping. We were already planning a trip to Denver to shop for back-to-school items, so it was perfect timing when Colorado Mills invited us to come in and shop the back-to-school sales. We took a trip down to the mall the other day, and not only did we find some great deals, we had a lot of fun!

Train at Colorado Mills

If you’ve never been to Colorado Mills, you’re in for a real treat. It’s not like other malls. It’s unique in that it is Denver’s only indoor outlet mall (yay for great deals!), and with the largest variety of stores and fun activities for kids, it is a great place for families. You’ll find a wide variety of dining options when you get hungry and a movie theater if you need to take a break from all the shopping. There’s something for everyone and that’s what makes it a great shopping destination.

Buying new clothes every school year really adds up! This year my son will be a freshman in high school and my twin girls will be in first grade. My girls have to wear uniforms to school, so we end up having to buy clothes for school and clothes for dress-down days and the weekend. It’s nice that Colorado Mills has all the stores my kids love  — OshKosh, Children’s Place, GAP Factory, Pac Sun, American Eagle and Nike Factory Store. There’s even my favorite, Target! It makes it easy to get all of our shopping done in one place.

OshKosh at Colorado Mills

Now is a great time to shop for back-to-school clothes and shoes at Colorado Mills. Many of the stores are offering deals such as buy one, get one, as well as percentage discounts to help you save on all of your back-to-school shopping. For example, OshKosh B’gosh is offering 40% off select items and they also have some great Doorbuster Deals — $12 tunics, $6 leggings, $8 denim and bogo shoes.

Stride Rite Sale at Colorado Mills

One of the most expensive parts about back-to-school shopping is buying everyone shoes. To help save us money, I like to take advantage of buy one, get one deals. This works out great because then everyone can pick out two pairs such as one athletic and one casual/dressy. We found some great shoe deals like Buy One, Get One 40% off sale at Stride Rite.

Children's Place at Colorado Mills

We also found some great deals at Children’s Place. I was able to buy most of my girls’ uniforms there, as well as some cute graphic tees and jeans for under $100.

Fun at Colorado Mills

My twin girls love to shop, but they tend to get bored easily. Thankfully, Colorado Mills has plenty of fun things for kids to do. They can take a train ride around the inside of the mall, play glow-in-the-dark mini-golf, ride the carousel and bungee trampoline. When my twin girls got tired of shopping, we took a break and let them ride the train and practice doing flips on the bungee trampoline. They also loved the large, ride-on stuffed animals. They had so much fun and have already begged to go back!

As you do your back-to-school shopping, make sure you check out Colorado Mills. I think you’ll like what you find!
