Fashion FYI: L.L. Bean hits the road, lands at Pitt
L.L. Bean is hitting the road and making a stop from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 23 and 24 at the University of Pittsburgh's William Pitt Union driveway, patio and lawn.
The goal of the tour is to bring the “Be an Outsider” campaign to life and encourage students to share their love of the outdoors. As part of the Maine company's college tour, the stop will feature a pop-up shopping trailer stocked with everything from Bean boots and pom hats to sweater fleeces and slippers and a first-ever custom lace station where students can customize their Bean boots with laces of all colors — perfect for showing off school pride.
There will be crash courses in map and compass skills, and the famous bootmobile will also be there with games and giveaways.
