Summer is almost over, and teachers everywhere are busy preparing for a new school year. Between finalizing lesson plans, buying supplies and setting up the classroom for their students, it’s easy for teachers to forget about their own back-to-school shopping needs. This year, kids won’t be the only ones getting new clothes for school. To help teachers get a fashion-forward start to the new school year and thank them for all their hard work, Arundel Mills is hosting an exclusive event and weeklong offers.

During a kickoff event on Sunday, Aug. 25 from 11 a.m.- 7 p.m., the first 100 teachers to visit Guest Services and show a valid school employee ID will receive a free $50 Simon gift card and Savings Passport. All teachers attending Sunday’s event can enter to win an additional $250 Arundel Mills shopping spree!

Also on Sunday, teachers are welcome to stop by an exclusive “Back to School Teachers Beauty Expo” at the Arundel Mills ULTA Beauty, featuring demonstrations and free samples from favorite brands, while supplies last.

And throughout the week, starting Monday, Aug. 25 through Saturday, Aug. 31, teachers with a valid school employee IDcan stop by Guest Services for vouchers that unlock great gifts from participating retailers, while supplies last. Participating retailers include Dave & Buster’s, Starbucks, Modell’s Sporting Goods, Tommy Hilfiger, Yankee Candle, Reeds Jewelers, Auntie Anne’s and Beef Jerky Outlet.

Beyond the event, Arundel Mills is hosting a social media contest in which participants can write a comment about an amazing teacher who had an impact on their lives. One winner will receive a $250 Simon gift card at the end of the contest.
