Your Go-To Guide for Back to School Shopping in Southlake

Take the stress out of the prep

Schools will soon be back in session (where did the time go?) which means it’s officially time to start preparing the kids for another year of learning. This is a brand new start for your child, it’s a blank canvas, and it’s exciting, but also nerve-racking for both of you. It’s not an easy task getting everything organized––new clothes, shoes, and supplies are all things that need to be squared away before the first day. Luckily, Southlake is a one-stop-shop for all of your on-trend, back-to-school needs and necessities so you can ensure your kids have everything they need to stroll through those school doors with confidence.

Not sure where to begin? Don’t worry; we’ve rounded up some of the best places (with some great deals) to shop all the back-to-school gear in Southlake.

Lucky Brand Jeans
New jeans are always on the back-to-school shopping list, and Lucky Brand delivers great quality for a reasonable price. However, jeans aren’t the only thing you can pick up here, they’ve also got a great selection of tops, shoes and shorts—because Summertime in Texas won’t be over any time soon.

Back-To-School Supplies

The Container Store
We all know that this is the place to go if we need some organization inspiration, but they also carry back-to-school supplies that all the kids will need. Pens, pencils, markers, notebooks, binders and planners are just a few things you’ll mark off your list here. If the kids have a locker this year, be sure to check out the fun locker organization and decoration products (there’s even a magnetic disco ball) and ensure they’ll never lose track of those report cards.
Steals & Deals
● Customer Favorites Sale–30% off in-store.
● Join POP Rewards and get 15% off your first purchase.

Back-to-school shopping doesn’t have to be overwhelming and can even be a fun experience with the kids if you’ve got a plan.

Insider Tips

After shopping, make the trip with the kids more fun by catching a movie at Harkins Theater, then grab a meal and well-deserved sweet treat at the Cheesecake Factory so you can spend some quality time together before they hit the books once again.

● For first-timers, help prepare your child by taking a tour of the school, meet the teacher and maybe even practice pick-up and drop-off so they know what to expect.
● Help them get into the right mindset by creating a homework station. (Supplies for this can also be found at the Container Store.)
● Start waking up a bit earlier a couple of weeks before the first day. This will make those early mornings a bit easier!
● Keep them motivated throughout the day with motivational lunch box notes!
● Use your last week before the kids go back to school to spend some one on one time with each kid—and make sure they feel at ease for the first day back.
