Affordable Back To School Clothes For 'Tweens

August 6, 2010 10:11:43 AM PDT
With school starting soon, it's time to think about shopping for clothes and accessories. If you have pre-teen daughters, you know that back to school shopping can be difficult. 'Tweens want to look stylish, but you want them to wear outfits that are age-appropriate.

Justice (formerly Limited II) www.shopjustice.com targets these hard-to-please girls from 7 to 14 years old. The stores are now showcasing affordable back-to-school clothes for 'tweens, says Leslie Perrini, Senior Director of Visual Merchandising for Justice.

Perrini reminds back-to-school shoppers that the state of Illinois is providing a sales tax break starting August 6 through August 15. The state sales tax will be cut by 5 percent, from 6.25 percent to 1.25 percent for clothing priced at less than $100. You'll still have to pay local sales taxes.

To coincide with the sale tax break and to provide even more incentive to shoppers, Chicago area Justice locations are holding a back-to-school sale with "40% off the entire store" through August 15.

Here are some of the hottest back-to-school looks for 'tweens. Fashions are available at Chicago area Justice Stores. Retail and discounted prices are both shown. For more information, visit www.shopjustice.com.
