Columbus Day is one of those holidays when kids have off, and parents are scrambling for ideas of what to do at the last minute. If you're smart, you'll take advantage of all the shopping opportunities, because retail stores are known to host some pretty sweet Columbus Day sales, and GAP Kids is no exception. Now through Monday, you can find shirts and pants as low as $6.
Of course, the last place your kids probably want to be is in a store trying on clothes on their day off, but think about it. By now, the weather in your area has probably started to change, which means you’ve begun going through your kid’s wardrobe looking for autumnal items. What might have fit last fall now looks like it should belong in baby GAP, thanks to that summer growth spurt. So at this point, you most likely know what’s fitting your kid — and what’s not. And since having clothing that’s the right size is critical to early morning get-out-the-door success, the GAP Columbus Day sale is a great opportunity to stock up and save.
Of course you can also score serious deals online — just make sure you use code GAPFALL for 40% off and Code WARMUP for an additional 10% off your purchase. All of your discounts will be applied at checkout, and really, is there anything better watching those subtotals go down? I highly doubt it. So shop the GAP and get your kid fashionably fabulous for fall now through Columbus Day — and on the cheap, too.
1. A Classic Shirt That Never Goes Out Of Style
T-shirts are always tops (get it?) when it comes to restocking your kid’s fall wardrobe. You can use this pretty pink shirt to go under stocky sweaters, or to even wear at home. It would even look adorable under a denim jacket.
2. Sparkly Pants For School And Play
These sparkle leggings will match your girl’s sparkly personality. And with its stretchy fabric, your kid can run, jump, and climb with ease. Plus, they can go from day to night easily, and be worn in school and at a friend’s party, too.
3. Fun Floral Denim
When the colder months come along, you’ll want your child to wear thicker pants. And these jeggings are made from premium 1969 denim with stretch to spare. The dark indigo wash with fading highlights the floral embroidery on the pants. And with pockets in both the front and back, your kid won’t ever lose her phone — hopefully.
4. A Mom-Approved Denim Jacket
For mornings when it’s chilly, (but your kid is too cool to wear a jacket), the Kids Icon Hoodie Crop Denim Jacket is the best of both worlds. It will cover her arms, shoulders, and upper torso, but still leave room to show off her shirt underneath. And it has a hood, too!
5. A Striped Shirt With Style
If you’re looking for a top that’s fine for fall, the Kids Eyelet Top is it. Made from a soft jersey knit, the crewneck top has eyelet detailing on its bell sleeves. And being 100% cotton, it’ll be soft and comfortable for all-day wear.
6. A Plaid Shirt That Is Comfy & Cool
Let’s face it: Stiff shirts just aren’t conducive for academic excellence. What is, though, is this boy’s plaid long sleeve shirt with button cuffs and its smooth weave. With a button-down front and curved shirttail, your kid will be headed to the front of the (fashion) class in no time.
7. Pants That Play As Hard As Your Kid
Whether your kid needs pants as part of a school uniform or just a pair to play in, these stretchy khakis offer a little extra wiggle room for boys who give their clothes a workout. It comes in black and navy, and offers reinforced double-lined knees to ensure that they don’t wear out before your kid does.
8. For Football-Lovin' Kids
It’s football season, so be sure to outfit your kid in a shirt that shows off his pigskin pride. The crewneck top is made from a soft jersey knit, and has the classic GAP logo on the front. Your kid will be scoring touchdowns in no time.
9. A Colorful Colorblocking Boys' Shirt
Colorblocking is back with the Kids Colorblock Short Sleeve T-Shirt. With a wide variety of styles to choose from, the shirt makes coloring in the lines awesome again.
