dressbarn Gift Certificate Giveaway!

As you already know, I am beyond thrilled about Birmingham’s new outlet mall, the Shops of Grand River.

(And, might I add, I should TOTALLY be nominated as it’s best customer since I’ve been there FOUR times since it opened two weeks ago).

One of those trips was for a blogger event at the new dressbarn.

Now I must admit, at first I was a bit leery, because my impression of dressbarn had always been a bit…matronly.  However, I got on their website and looked around before I agreed to attend, and was really impressed with what I saw.

And when I arrived at their store, I was blown away!! My former impressions were exactly the opposite of what I found – their offerings were modern, hip, and young – and an added bonus of being quite affordable!  I was totally wishing I could wear their clothes right now – but I’m sure I’ll need some clothes after Noah arrives, so I’ll definitely be going back.

But I took some pictures for you…

My favorite items were the beautifully tailored and detailed sweaters – they were magnificent!!

They also had some fabulous holiday looks:

And they offered some great (and very NON Mom-Dreaded-Long-Butt) jeans – these in particular were Seven7 Jeans:

I was able to find myself some awesome jewelry, so I didn’t walk away empty-handed, despite my pregnant belly:


But needless to say, I was very impressed and surprised by their beautiful clothes and accessories – dressbarn will definitely be in my shopping rotation!

So, if you’d like to go on a dressbarn shopping trip yourself, they gave me a $25 gift certificate to share with one of you!  Simply comment on this post to enter.

  6. Hi Rachel!

    I would love it if you would include me in yoru giveaway. I too once thought of Dressbarn as matronly….but I had never been in one until a friend of mine insisted (Her fav store…and she always has cute clothes). I too am now a believer. I would LOVE to win! I need a new look.

  15. As you know, I have been a long-time Dress Barn addict. Easily 95% of what I wear these days is from their store. And yes, their jewelry is AWESOME! And I love the way the jewelry selection always coordinates with their clothes, which makes my outfits look very pulled-together. I could never do that at other stores.

  16. Do I get extra entries because I already follow Dress Barn on Twitter and Facebook? : )

  17. I follow you.

  35. OK, I’m intrigued. I still thought of dressbarn as… erm, “matronly”. But, I’ve got a (not-so-toned-and) fabulous new post-baby body and am in need of said non-mom-butt jeans. I’ll take a look at dressbarn for sure.

  57. I think we have this store, but I’ve never gone in there b/c I assumed, like you, that it was rather matronly. I mean “dressbarn” is not a very hip name. Good to hear that it has good stuff. I’ll have to try it out. :)

  58. And I follow your blog.

  59. And on FB

  60. Okay, don’t count this one for the contest but I seriously just hit submit and up came a blank white page and all it said was:

    You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.

  70. Terri Washington says:

    thank you, thank you, thank you. Making comments was so difficult! And it’s great that I can comment on Dress Barn which is my absolute favorite place to shop! Only I can’t wear a lot of their stuff because I am extra large and lots of their clothes stop at large. And in their women’s section it seems to start at 1XL which is too big!. But I always find something! They just opened a brand new store right around the corner. i think my debit card is in trouble!

  71. Adrienne Gordon says:

    What a fun giveaway.

  72. I went to their website and looked around. They have several tops I wouldn’t mind having!

  73. Those sweaters are GORGEOUS! I love the capped sleeve sweater on the top. I have so many long sleeved tees that would go well underneath it. So cute!!

  74. Elizabeth N. says:

    I love DressBarn because their clothes are actually cut for my figure! Although I wish they had a better name so I didn’t have to shop at a “barn.”
