Swagilicious! Girls' winter jacket giveaway

This giveaway is now over! And the winner is..."The West Coast Elkies!" WCE, please be in touch with me and I will get you your swagilicious jacket! YAY!

Chilly yet where you are? Here in Crabcity we feel positively tropical compared with the Wyoming freezover of our erstwhile home in Crabtown, but it's still dang cold. I mean, Pacific NW cold: wet, dark, damp, like living in an armpit for about six months of the year. Except it smells better.

So yes, we are cold and grumpy. But thanks to my swell friends at Lands' End, I can kit out the kid in this delightful Girls' Weatherly Jacket, and so can you if you win this giveaway, you luckymommy!

Nothing is more depressing and potentially traumatizing to all concerned than shoving a tot into a massive puff of a winter jacket. Which is why I dig Lands' End's offering. It's warm, but not bulky, but with a temp rating of +5°/-15° Fahrenheit, it will def keep your tot toasty unless you plan to take them on some super-extreme heli-ski adventure during a deadly cold snap (and if you're one of those intensivo Crabtown athleti-moms, I know you will)!

Back to the jacket, check the pic and the stats:
* Nylon shell with DriOff® finish: water beads up and rolls off
* Exclusive PolarThin® insulation in body and hood for warmth without bulk
* Sherpa Fleece lining for cozy softness
* Slightly fitted waist with adjustable tabs in back
* Microfleece-lined handwarmer pockets behind exterior cargo pockets
* Rip-grip adjustable cuffs

Available in a range of sizes from toddler through to big girl. Also available in various of colors, but of course Crabkid's is...can you guess?...Yes! You're right! BUT HOW DID YOU KNOW?!

So put your name in the hat, ladies, and the kind folks at Lands' End will send the lucky winner a freebie. And if you don't win, don't feel crushed. The jackets are on sale right now at $49.50, here, and after ponying up major bucks for all the Patagonias in my past, I can safely say this this is a score. It's slim and trim but warm and snug, keeping your bug in a rug-like vibe without the padding. Double-yay!

Rules: Put your name in the comments. No need to be fancy or witty with the comment itself though I always appreciate it if you are. No anonymous comments, por favor. Or at least, if you're anon, put an email contact in there for me. I will run this giveaway through...heck...Sunday night, Dec 14! At 10 Linkpm I will rouse Crabkid from her slumber and have her pick a random winner.

p.s. Looking for deeper Crabmommy musings today? Don't be disappointed! They're at the bloglet. In the latest installment of The Momocrite Diaries I talk about judging other moms and how I jis' can't help myself...Come judge me for judging you!

Ok so today My kid stuffed on 3 different jackets! as I watched in amazment then just as we ran out the door threw a scarf around her neck! I asked do you get cold she yelled yes as running to the bus stop. I bet this coat would be a welcomed toasty in her closet.

My husband is from LA. We live in Minnesota. Need I say more about who keeps tabs on the warm jackets in the house?

We are enjoying a balmy period of -20C (That's -4F.) Typically it's -40C this time of the year (which, oddly enough, converts exactly to -40F -- how is that possible??) Maybe this coat wouldn't be warm enough for our Yukon winters, but it would make spring and autumn more bearable!

My weather is crappy, cold, miserable, and wet. Winning a nice jacket will brighten my spirits, if only for a moment :)

I'd love that for my oldest daughter--she could use a new jacket!

My daughter could use a new jacket too

I just moved from Seattle to Rochester NY. It has now snowed more days in the last month than I have seen in years. And I'm so cold. I would love to be warm on my walk to school

We want to be Fliss-Flossin' just like Crabtot! Did I mention Gwyneth Paltrow looks like an alien? Huh...weird.

Lina said...

I'm looking outside at a marvelous winter wonderland and hoping my kid's jacket still fits from last year. Should really dig it out of the cellar and see, unless of course I get a snazzy new one!

My 8 year old would look so much better racing down those beige double helix runs in a coat that is not held together with duct tape. Nothing wrong with duct tape, I've always said, and she has handled it stoically year after year but this would be a very nice gift. . . .

Alexis said...

Yes, please! I am headed over to Cookie now to share my judgiest momocrite moments...

Favorite word verification: sparde. I think that's when you end up with brain damage after too much boxing.

I'd love to get a new coat for my niece.

Alexis said...

This would be a great XMAS gift for my daughter!!

tonypark said...

How many Sherpas had to die to make that lining, I wonder?

Shel said...

Cute coat...sure beats the Target coat I bought my daughter a few months ago that now has a huge honking RIP in the side from the puppy biting it...grrrrrrrr. 27,000 bones in this house and the little booger jacks her coat and gnaws on it.

Mona said...

This jacket looks so warm and comfy! Would love this for my little girl!!

Heather said...

These coats are so great. I even asked for one for myself for Christmas.

My niece could really use a new coat. I'd love to give it to her!

I am in the market for a winter jacket that is not purple, doesn't have pockets ripped to heck, and doesn't make me look like a strangely-colored gigantic sausage!
Oh, and I need to walk the poodle because my crab monsters are uncooperative about walking the sweetest dog alive and it's cold in NJ...and I have a matching "cheerleading" sweater in pink for the poodle. She's solid black, so she doesn't photo well. Kris Logan
