JCPenney Fashion Models (from my former neighborhood)

Remember my post about neighbors? I have quite a few really nice ones.

There’s Jennifer. Her house has been deemed as “the party house”…by her five kids. The house has lots of toys, lots of snacks, a sandbox, a grassy place to play, and…a warm & hospitable host.

Also, meet Ashlie. She’s super sweet. I can’t remember right now, but I think she may be originally from the South (which doesn’t surprise me a bit because she totally has that genuine southern kindness going for her).

Finally, you can’t enter or exit a room without noticing Katie. She’s extraverted and thoughtful. After I had my second baby (long before I even knew her), she stopped by my doorstep and delivered a tray of lasagna.

What do these three have in common? Well, aside from the fact that they’re my neighbors, they’re all wearing JCPenney in these pictures. JCPenney hooked us all up with gift cards to try out their brand new Liz Claiborne collection.

Jennifer is wearing the V-Neck Christmas Shopping Tee ($19.99) and the Chelsea Jean ($33.00). Ashlie is wearing the Jet Stretch Ring ($12.99), plus a pair of earrings similar to the SW Chandelier ($15.99). Katie is wearing the Sequin Crewneck Cardigan ($45.00).

I think we all agreed that the collection had some cute pieces, but it isn’t as “young” or as “fashion-forward” as we had hoped. It’s not that we want to look 14, but we don’t really want to look 40 either. We’re in our twenties and thirties – and we want our clothes to reflect that.

The prices are fantastic though…and gems can definitely be found for the whole family inside the store. For example, I am totally loving this Wool Bib Car Coat ($89.99) from the Clairborne line for men. And that model? Wow – he is somethin’ else. ;)

  1. Becca says

    I’ve been thinking of getting my sister and her family a comfy bean bag for their newly completed basement/ family room. I found some great options at

  2. kristen says

    how you have time for this, I don’t know!!! But it’s still fantastic. I am in need of a few nice sweaters, since I was pregnant last winter and in AZ/Asia the winter before that!
    I used to get things at JCP, but I mostly just do thrift stores now when we need something.
    Remember going to Speedway Thrift together?

  3. says

    I don’t usually shop at JcPenney because I agree with you…the clothes seem a little on the “older” side. But I’d be willing to give it a shot again. I haven’t checked out their children’s clothing.

  4. Becca says

    That is so cool that your neighbors got to have a little shopping spree with you. Fun. I love JC Penny, but I do tend to forget about it, I think just because of where it is located. But when I remember I always seem to find something great. They have a nice sandal selection in the summer and the prices are great.

  5. Nell@LoveLetters says

    Oh, I love that you took pictures of your neighbors. Looks like a nice, young group. Looks nothing like our neighborhood. ;)

    I love JCP, by the way. It was one of my favorite places to shop but they are a wee bit too expensive for me now, so a freebie would be great!

    We’ve got family pictures coming up and need to outfit everyone for it.


    • Stephanie says

      I can relate! We are in constant need of the “basics” around here – stretchy pants, plain t-shirts, comfy sweatshirts, etc. :)

  6. says

    I just looked at the line and agree with you…although I like Katie’s sweater for work. I find quite a bit there for my kids. My daughter has a skinny waist and love that most of thier jeans are adjustable. For my little one they often have great sales for toddler clothes.

  7. Kim says

    I have not shopped at Penney’s (as my mom called it) much since I have moved back here. I don’t enjoy malls except when necessary for spending time with my teenage children. I do love them though! What I appreciate most is that they have a location in a strip mall where we are from (and still have our home, and will be returning too). It is a small town, and they are the best place to go to shop for family clothing. They have great sales, and I love that they have something for everyone. Even through these hard times, they have managed to stick it out and still have the store there.

  8. says

    I hadn’t been in a JCPenny’s in years – and this weekend my hubby and meandered in the one in the mall. I was actually surprised by how many nice things there were…like REALLY surprised! Ours had an adorable little baby section (which I will clearly be hanging out in over the next few months!) I wonder if they sell maternity clothes? Now that i’m rounding out at almost 6 months I’m finally in need of “stretchy” belly pants or whatever they are called :-) I’d love to win this!!

  9. says

    I hardly ever shop at JCPenny…and then….usually around the Holidays I will run in there for whatever reason and truly find great stuff.

    I think one of the reasons I don’t shop there more frequently is their website??? I do mostly online shopping, not sure but I don’t think its as engaging as others….and like you said they are inconsistent with their in between style of clothes…it’s either too old or too young?

  10. Jennifer B says

    I love that plaid shirt. I also love that you have real people modeling the clothes, everyone looks great! I can always find what I love and need and JcPenney’s for great prices

  11. Lachelle says

    While sometimes it takes some hunting, I can always find something for everyone in my family (including Grandma!) at JCPenney.

  12. Annette D says

    Neighbors are great! My best friend, and also my former neighbor, just moved about 2 hours away and I miss her!
    Your neighbors look great!

  13. says

    We are lucky enough to have some amazing neighbors as well! I honestly believe God has sent them, because there have been times that I don’t know what I would not have done if they didn’t stop by!

  14. Rena says

    We shop at Penny’s all the time. They have great shoe deals! We also love their clothing. Growing up in a small town, we had two department stores. Penny’s was one of them. So we grew up dressed in Penny’s stuff. Now that we live in a larger place with more options – we still love Penny’s. I love the okie dokie line of kids clothes too. They are not only cute, but good quality items that look great wash after wash!

  15. says

    Those ladies look like great neighbors.

    I haven’t shopped at JC Penney’s in about a year but when I was working outside the house I used to buy a good amount of my clothes from them. As a larger gal I wish they had more fashionable larger sized but I did like their “work dress” pants.

  16. says

    Yes, I shop at JC Penney b/c I think they have some great deals and sales, as well as coupons. I agree that their fashions are NOT exactly cutting edge, but I go there for basics and the deals… :) Cute post involving your neighbors – that is awesome! :)

  17. says

    I do shop at JcPenne’ys at times. However, like you, sometimes I don’t think their clothes are young enough for what I’d want to be wearing. I think they are improving though from years ago.

  18. Lynn S says

    Your friendly neighbors look great. For several years I lived in a very small town and the only place we had for shopping was JCPenneys. It was a busy little store.

  19. says

    Yes I do! I worked there for a year part time after my first was born and I enjoyed it. Since then I have been a regular customer off and on. They have fantastic store sales and great catalogs for ordering!

  20. Carol G says

    I shop at JC Penney’s stores. They have great sales with plenty of items on the racks. I buy towels and sheets on sale. The online variety is really good and the styles that my family really likes and uses.

  21. Patricia says

    We do shop at JC Penney. You can really get some great deals there. I once got a reversible comforter marked down to 7 dollars there and I still wanted my 5 percent off.

  22. hippie4ever says

    That must have been a fun shopping trip before you left. I hope you all went together and had coffee too :) I’ve been reading all your posts, but am usually stealing moments away from my son to check my mail and am too hurried to comment. I just wanted to tell you I am praying for you and I think it is a beautiful thing, listening to God’s heart. Have you ever visited:
    she, her husband and child seem to be on a similar journey as the one you are preparing to embark on.
    God bless (as He always does) and know that I will be praying for you and your family.

    • Stephanie says

      I wish we would have all gone to coffee together, but we actually all went shopping separately. It worked out better w/ all of our crazy schedules this time around. ;)

  23. Sadie Carey says

    I like to shop at JCPenney for the kids clothes. The prices are good and their kids clothes are not as cheaply made as some other stores. I super love their prices.

  24. Amber G says

    I love these! Especially the top Kate is wearing…and you’re making me hungry for lasagna. I wish Kate was my neighbor!

  25. Katelyn says

    I grew up going with my mom to the really big JCP sales a couple times a year. I still shop there. I always seem to be able to find something nice for a decent price and for pretty good quality. Plus, they are one of the few nicer clothing stores in my small town.

  26. Amy M says

    I have a hard time finding clothes for me at JCP, but I like their kids clothes. We just went there a couple of weeks ago to get my son a winter jacket – and he wore it today for our first snowfall!

  27. Margaret Smith says

    I just went to JC Penney yesterday with my kids to get them all new winter coats. Love JC Penney and love the sales that they have! What a great giveaway. This would come in handy for Christmas shopping.
    Thanks so much.

  28. valancia says

    JCPenney is a trusted name my mother shopped by for many many years that’s the name I knew growing up. They have such nice clothes and furniture.

  29. says

    we had a JC Penny’s store open up in our town last holiday season and I have found that since I have one in my backyard now I do shop there and while I’ve never found a whole outfit I have found several pieces and I like their shoes!

  30. Kiara says

  31. Cee says

    Yes, we do shop at JCP. We take advantage of the online coupon codes that they have. The last time that we bought shoes for my husband, we received free shipping and a 40% discount as well. They have some incredible coupons and sales!

  32. Stephanie V. says

    agree – love that coat. would look grat on my hubby as well. we all need some new clothes and the price at jcp is just right
    tvollowitz at aol dot com

  33. Carla says

    I love that outfit that Ashlie’s son has on so cute!! My mother bought our stuff at jcpenney when we were younger and now I shop there for my son. They have some good deals in store and online all the time.

  34. Valerie C. says

    When my children were babies, J C Penney always had great quality clothing and more for them. My husband is a big guy and LOVES their casual clothes. He bought 3 identical pairs of Levi’s cargo pants from them!! They have great sales too.

  35. Catalina K says

    I think JCP has some fantastic deals for this holiday season. I was just searching through their website for a suitable Christmas party dress and I found more than one option. Moreover, the item I would like to have (a beautiful, ruby red satin dress) comes at an affordable price, which gives me the chance to invest in a new pair of dress pumps from the same store this year. Thank you for the fantastic giveaway!

  36. says

    When I was growing up, there were two places to shop-JCP or Sears. I always preferred JCP because they had the cutest clothes.

  37. Pauline M says

    JC Penney’s is great for getting some great outfits for my entire family! Of course, bargain shopping here is always a treat and will always stock up on next seasons clothes for my kids to save some bucks, especially for my son who loves the variety of t-shirts available !

  38. Jennifer T says

    I am so loving your neighbor posts. It really made me decide I have to become a bigger part of my neighborhood, we’ve been here almost a year and only know one of our elderly neighbors. What a fun thing to do with your neighbor’s, I’m a bit jealous actually! I am going to make it a point to introduce myself to at least two neighbor’s in the next couple weeks, and hopefully on the 28th (when our neighborhood lights the Christmas Tree at the Village Commons) I can meet a bunch more.
    I normally only shop at JcPenney’s for my son, he is in an odd size right now and JCP is the only place we found pants that fit him well.

  39. Benny says

    I’ve been looking for a coat just like the Wool Bib Car Coat above . It’s kind of nice that I stumbled upon it this way!

    We do a lot of our cloths shopping at JCPenney’s (even when I was a kid, that’s where we did our school shopping).

  40. Anna says

    I haven’t shopped at JCP for years, mostly because the clothes aren’t quite my style, but I am willing to give it another try!

  41. says

    I love JC Penney! I found a pair of skinny denim leggings in petite sizes (which were still a tad too long since I’m so short) for $8!!! They’re “A.N.A.” brand which I think has much younger looking pieces than Liz Claiborne. But I do think you could mix n match pieces of the Liz Claiborne collection that are more classic looking with more trendy pieces to look cute & age appropriate!

  42. Melissa says

    JC Penny’s is not a place I typically shop at. I did just stop by the other day after my family watched a movie and realized it is a great place for one stop shopping. My husband was entertained, as well as my step-dad. My mom and I were able to get some shopping done without having the guys complaining and asking “How long are we staying here?” So even though I don’t shop at JC Penny’s often, I enjoy going and it is definitely a place I should go to more often.

  43. says

    My family just rediscovered JC Penneys this last year. They have a great Juniors department with sizes that are small enough for my petite daughters and they are very stylish. The sales are great too, especially when they offer the $10 off $10 coupons. You really can’t go wrong.

  44. Timbo says

    JCPenney is one of those outlets where we’ve gotten a lot of our finer outfits :) They’ve got juuuuust the right level of sophistication that’s not too terribly expensive :D

  45. Marcia Goss says

    I shop at JCPenney for myself and for my son. He 6’6″ tall, and I can always find something for him in the Big and Tall Department.

  46. says

    How funny! I used to live in that neighborhood! I know Ashlie and Katie. They are 2 of the nicest women I have ever met!
    I don’t shop at JCP often because there isn’t one very conveniently located to my house, but I have shopped there in the past and would happily drive out of my way if I had a giftcard!

    • Stephanie says

      No way! Really? Too bad we never met! Did you ever see us walking the neighborhood? ;)

      Also – where do you live now? :)

      • says

        We moved over near Udall Park because I wanted to be closer to my family. Now we are 5 minutes from my parents and 9 minutes from my sister! I don’t think I ever saw you walking the neighborhood but I saw you at the 5K in Sierra Morado once! I used to walk our dog twice a day (but often times in the dark). Too bad I didn’t know you then!

        • Stephanie says

          How fun to live near Udall Park, Kendra! I love the walking/running track there…it’s nice to have an indoor option for the summer months too.

  47. Lisa Foster says

    My daughter is getting married in April and I would love the gift card to go toward an ourfit at JC Pennys–I love their clothes

  48. McKim says

    I would love to win this J C Penney gift card. I am always buying clothes for kids, but never for myself. I haven’t really bought myself any new clothes for a couple of years. If I win this I think I would treat myself to a few new things!

  49. Erica says

    They all look so cute! I’m glad you were able to bless them with new clothes; they’re great people. :) You’re right, though; I generally don’t look at JC Penney when I’m thinking new cute fashion, but they’ve got some cute stuff if you look around.

  50. Jess D says

    I get probably 85% of my clothing from JCP. I just wish they’d hire a few more people so I wouldn’t have to search quite so hard for assistance.

  51. Alicia Webster says

  52. Heather S says

    I was just at JCPenney and they had the cutest flannel 2 piece pj set for ladies with scottie dogs on it. I really want that one.

  53. Lynda Edghill says

    My son is growing so fast I can’t keep him in clothes, not to mention the fact that his taste in clothes changes every other month. And I thought females were bad about that! This would really help out!

  54. says

    I’ve never been to J.C. Penney’s because I’ve never lived anywhere close to one. But seeing your neighbors (and hubby!) modelling the new Liz C line makes me want to go check it out. I particularly like the sequined cardigan and the chandelier earrings. I’m always up for a bargain!

  55. Courtney S says

    I love JcPenneys to shop. My dd’s love their jeans! We went last week and got them a few pairs. They always have the best sales!

  56. Amber says

    Great looking fashions! We love JCPenney in this house, we often buy clothing and shoes there for the entire family. Oh and that male model, what a hunk! ;)

  57. heatherzilla says

    I love JC Penney! They have great clothes at affordable prices. I am also around 30 and sometimes have problems finding clothes that do not look like they were designed for a 14 year old or a 40 year old. I can usually find something ot match my style at JC Penney.

  58. Autumn B. says

    i shop at jcpennys a lot, we have one a couple of miles away from our house – i’m actually going there today b/c they are having a great sale today! (extra 20% off clearance)

    autumn398 @

  59. Cathy Truman says

    Yes we shop at JC Pennys. We love their clothes. I just purchased my winter coat from there
    and my husband really likes their pillows. We shop at JC Pennys about once a week. We like all their
    clothes and bath and bedroom items. Thanks so much for the contest.

  60. Jenn S. says

    JCP has the best sales . It is one of the few places that I can almost always find what I am looking for at a great price.

  61. says

    Wow! What a great idea – you and your neighbors! Well, former neighbors, but you’re all linked for life, I bet :)

    I usually go to JC Penney’s for work clothes. They have dressy things that are comfortable. Also, I have shopped for bathing suits there because they always have awesome suits for “well-endowed” women, that cover just enough and are cute, not old-ladyish :)

  62. Jacob says

    This is so great, I do all my shopping at JCPenney – Stafford and St. John’s Bay are the most common names around my home!

  63. says

    What an awesome giveaway. I love to shop at JC Penny’s and have 100.00 before Christmas would be great.
    I like their pants, which actually fit my body. Actually I like all their clothes.

    Please contact me at muffetval at yahoo dot com and I will send my address to you once I win. Just positive thinking, then I will do a Happy Dance around the Christmas Tree.

  64. says

    I haven’t tried JCP in years, never really found any clothing I liked for me. But looking around their site I see things I would actually wear. And I am in love with the Okie Dokie Toddler Girl Snowsuit with the matching scarf and hat.

  65. courtney says

    wow i love jc penneys! they have great sales, especially on handbags. They are a go to spot for christmas shopping!

  66. Colleen says

    Just stepped into my forties and still don’t want to dress frumpy. I just recently bought a pair of shoes from JCP but haven’t bought any clothes from them in years.

  67. says

    I don’t shop at JCPenney all that often. There are many other stores closer to my house that I like better overall. However, I do love their shoe department and could definitely use some new shoes for the whole family.

  68. M Whitten says

    Love shopping at JCP. Perfect for everyone in my family! My kids would get the most out of this if I were to win!

  69. says

    JC Penny’s is my favorite place to shop for regular clothing. My mother always took me there for school shopping and such. Between that and the prices, I guess it just kind of stuck. ;)
    chainmail(at) iwon(dot) com

  70. Karen M says

    I like shopping at JCP and can usually find something. I’ll have to check out what they have for fall. Thanks for the giveaway.

  71. Kiersten says

    We love JC Penney–especially when they have good sales! It’s definitely one of the stores I always hit up on Black Friday.

  72. Susan Park says

    I haven’t shopped at JC Penney’s in a long time but maybe I will try them sometime. My favorite department store, Mervyns, went out of business, at least in my town.

  73. Susan T says

    “Do YOU shop at JCPenney for yourself or your family?”
    Of course….Great prices on purses, clothes and linens….The store near me also remodeled and was made a lot bigger a few months ago. A very nice store. semtaylor(at)yahoo(dot)com

  74. Tina J says

    Wow Ihave not shopped at a jc penny in soo long, come to think of it, I havent shopped in soo long! lol Iwould love to win this!

  75. Alicia says

    I generally don’t shop at JC Penney’s…because I tend to avoid the mall. But my BFFs mom gave her some really cozy PJs from there that I’d love to get for myself.

    \Thanks for the giveaway >^..^<

  76. Liann S says

    I adore JCPenney’s holiday dresses for little girls. I think they have a great selection of kids clothes and you can not beat their end of the season clearances.

  77. Sarah Hirsch says

    I shop there sometimes when they send a 10 dollar off anything coupon, but I usually just buy children’s clothes for the kids. i also will buy levis there for my husband because that is his favorite brand of jeans. i agree with you on the womens clothing selection thougb

  78. joni says

    I’ve been shopping at Penney’s for many many many years. You can’t beat their sales.

  79. says

    When JC Penney’s has a big sale, we will sometimes drop by, but we’re so cheap that we normally don’t go to the mall for clothes shopping trips. Would I love to? Absolutely! We just try to keep our clothes budget pretty low, so we end up going to a lot of garage sales instead.

  80. Sarah R. says

    I like JC Penney’s and I do believe they are trying to cater more towards younger customers. I like the Nicole Miller line the best. Thanks, Stephanie, for your honest review!

  81. jennifer horn says

    I love the clothes and the value you get for your money at JC Penneys. My girls have worn the Arizona brand for years. They are always up to date on the latest styles.

  82. Jessica says

    JCPenney definitely varies on how wearable its lines are – it’s trying to compete with Sears and Macy’s and trying too hard to be both. However, I also haven’t shopped there in years, so a gift card to test if my feelings for the store have changed would not be a bad thing.

  83. Betsy Hoff says

    I was just telling a friend this weekend how much I LOVE JC Penny. They always have awesome sales and I usually save MORE than I actually spend when I go there.

  84. Denise B. says

    This would come in handy since we are moving to Florida and need to buy a lot of things for the new house. I usually get my curtains from J. C. Penney.

  85. Lauren says

    my grandmother adores JC Penney… this would make a fabulous christmas gift for her!! Thanks!
    And so amazed and inspired by your new venture… can’t wait to hear how you are blessed (and are blessings) by it!

  86. Selene Montgomery says

    I shop at Penney’s for my husband because they carry “tall” clothes. I like their clearance sales for the two of us.

  87. says

    My mom started working at JC Penney’s in the late 70’s when it was still kind of new for woman to be managers (can you believe it)? and she loved it. The whole family has always shopped there and I’m sure always will. It’s such a family store with something for everyone and the prices can’t be beat. What I especially love is the quality of items too – you really get what you pay for and more. I always feel good giving any gift from JC Penney’s – I really love their selection, quality and prices. thanks, much.

  88. andrea dimario says

  89. AutumH says

    JC Penney is definitely a great place to stock up on basic pieces for a decent price. I’m loving their Liz Claiborne Buffalo Check Jacket.

  90. Vicky H. says

    We always get a bunch of coupons from JCPenney, plus we each have a JCP card for extra deals. So yes, of course we shop there. LoL.

  91. AuraR says

    I don’t shop at Penney’s much because it is out of the way for me and I have quite a few choices that are more convenient. If I’m in the area – then why not!

  92. says

    I shop there for baby clothes…they have great sales occasionally and my mom has bought Addy quite a few things on clearance from their Okie Dokie brand and Carter’s. All very nice stuff, cute and durable. I’ve been eyeing a set of their flannel sheets for myself…my mom also got some of those recently and says they are very nice and warm and a good price on sale.

  93. Bonnie P says

    I really like JCP I can always find something that I want. My daughter bought her winter coat there last year. I hope to win this GC so I can buy myself a winter coat this year.

  94. Amy M. says

    My husband and I have been consistent “Penny’s” shoppers for years. Their sales on men’s dress clothing are virtually unbeatable! Many years ago back when my husband and I were dating, my husband lost one of his closest friends to Lupus. Being college students, cash was a little tight and he needed a sportscoat for the funeral. We headed to JC Penny’s and found not only the employees to be most helpful but also a good sale that worked within the budget! You can count on Penny’s to provide quality clothing for working families!

  95. Kelly says

    I shop at JCPenney every now and then. I usually only head in for a big sale or when I’m Christmas shopping. However, I did find out that the Sephora in the JCPenney nearest me is MUCH less busy and MUCH better stocked than the real Sephora just down the mall!

  96. sara says

    We buy a ton of gifts for christmas at JCP. Right now, we need to buy a dust ruffle and a hawaiian shirt. Random, but what was asked for!

  97. Sheila says

    I DO shop at Penneys. I especially love the line of clothes from Worthington. I still have some Worthington blouses that I bought over 20 years ago and wore for work over and over again.

  98. says

    I love JC Penney! Everytime I have a wedding to go to (and in my last 5 years we have gone to approximately 18 weddings), I can never find a dress that I deem suitable. So I go to JC Penney and I’m left with a ton of options and trouble choosing! That cardigan on katie is gorgeous!

    vschilke at gmail dot com

  99. says

    JC Penney is my MIL’s favorite store, and since she clothes shops for me more than I shop for myself, I’ve come to love it, too. There was one time that I went shopping there to get a new blouse for work, and later found out that my MIL had bought the same blouse for herself. Our senses of style have really met up well, don’t you think? :)

  100. Patricia says

    I like to shop the J C Penney’s sales. I usually go with my mother and we always find great deals. Also, I can find great Christmas gifts at good prices, often on sale. Thanks for the giveaway! pvbugg at embarqmail dot com

  101. Jeanine says

    I only recently started shopping at JC Penny after going their with a relative. I’m a fan now and I love the SW Chandelier.

  102. says

    M*cy’s is having a huge sale tomorrow and I desperately want to go shopping for some new clothes! (I’m still wearing a combination of maternity clothes and in between sizes clothes, bleh!). But after doing the money tonight… I know I have a very small budget! For awhile I could hardly find anything at Penney’s I liked, but recently I’ve found some cute stuff there!

    How cute to photograph your neighbors!

    And JC Penney always surprises me each time I visit – I have gotten some of the most gorgeous accessories there, and great deals on kids clothes (and me clothes!). People are always surprised when I say that my necklace or dress came from JCP!

  105. says

    I didn’t realize that Liz Claiborne had a collection at JCPenney now … I have always loved the way her clothes fit me. I’m going to have to stop by the mall and check that out!

  106. Laura says

    I shop JCPenney for all our family members. They offer great sales and I get coupons in the mail pretty frequently as well.

  107. LaurenS says

    I shop there sometimes when I buy new. Usually I shop second hand stores first. But I do have to buy the kids new underwear and socks. Last year I bought my oldest son new underwear and socks at JC Pennys.

  108. says

    If I won this gift card, I would use some of it towards Christmas gifts, but I would use some of it to purchase some winter maternity clothes for me! Thanks for the opportunity!

  109. Janna Johnson says

  110. Kristie says

    I LOVE JCPenney. I can always find great deals there as well as quality clothes that are stylish. It is always one of the first stores that I shop in when I go to the mall.

  111. Michele J. says

    We’ve shopped there whenever they are having their sales – during my last pregnancy I found some great buys on maternity clothes. My mother-in-law loves Pennies and Dillards, so a lot of the clothing gifts she sends for our girls are from there.

  112. Carolyn says

    I love shopping at JCP. Their Worthington collection is a really affordable option for suits and other professional wardrobe items!

  113. Mike says

    Shopping at JCP online is great. They frequently have free shipping offers, and you can return items free of charge to the store, so it’s risk free!

  114. Jennae Mendoza says

    I recently read that most smart shoppers invest in a JC Penny’s card. I don’t, however, JC Penny’s always has great coupons that can save you up to 40 percent not just around the holidays but all year long.

  115. Samantha says

    I’ve had a lot of luck finding clothes for work at JCP. I can’t seem to find such a good range of sizes at any other store. My favorite brand is Worthington. I also love that they have sales all the time!

  116. Marjorie Whitney says

    JCPenney is one of my favorite places for the things everyone needs, from sweaters to underclothes. I’m not at all surprised that all your nice neighbors are looking so stylish in their clothes!

  117. Holly C. says

    I don’t know why I don’t shop more at JC Penney’s, I guess the location is not on my way to anywhere. But they do have nice affordable clothing. If I won the gc, I know I would spend that and more there because of their good prices and sales.

  118. D Johnson says

    JC Penney has really nice kid’s clothes. They hold up pretty good to my son’s wear and tear. I haven’t bought any clothes for my self there (or any where for that matter) in ages though. Oh and I love their shoe department :)

  119. Debbie C says

    I do shop at Penney’s, mostly for myself because I always find something I want at a good price and often on sale.

  120. says

    It has been a long time since I been in a Jc Penney store. My daughter could use some new clothes, and I know they got tons of deals and sales. If I won I think a trip to Memphis was be needed and much appreciated.

  121. Phil says

    I need a new coat and really like the Claiborne Wool Bib Car Coat that you featured. Will have to go check it out in the store.

  122. says

    I didn’t realize you were hosting a giveaway for JCPenney’s! I buy the majority of my husband’s clothing there because they have a great selection of men’s wear, very competitive prices and the return policy is very generous.

    I had to return a pair of chinos that had one panel of a slightly lighter color a few weeks ago and the customer service was awesome. The sales associate did an even exchange.

  123. Andrea says

    Recently I had a job interview and after searching around the mall I decided to go to JCPenneys. I found some great pants and a couple of sweaters that were on sale for an equally great price. Yes, the clothes were a little “older”, but last time I checked so was I and I needed a professional appearance that Forever 21 couldn’t give me.

  124. Martina says

    I enjoyed looking at fashion pictures with people from around your neighborhood. Always refreshing to see fashion on real people instead of models!

  125. Paige says

    If I had that jet ring, my daughter would be wandering off with it (she’s 8 going on tres chic). Love the wool coat, I hope they make something similar for women.

  126. Sheila says

    my mom always shopped at JC Penney’s when i was a kid, and that was where our school shopping was done. would love to win the card because i am helping a sister and her four kids hard hit by the economic crunch.

  127. says

    Thank you for the giveaway. This is a great store because, they have fantastic deals and you can even find great items on clearance if you look for them!

  128. vicky says

    JCPenney has such great clearance deals. We spent 40.00 for my 6 year old daughter and saved 450.00!!!!!!!!! Such a awesome deal!

  129. Ceinwyn R says

    I love shopping at Penney’s, they have great sales and let’s face it, there aren’t many other places to shop where I live! I have to admit that I do vastly prefer their a.n.a and east5th lines to Claiborne though.

  130. Erin Walsh says

    I love the sweater Katie is wearing. I don’t shop for clothes a lot at JC Penneys, I just have a lot of other stores physically closer, and with clothing, I usually like to try it on. But I definitely would shop for home items.


  131. Yvonne H. says

    I like shopping at JCPenney. My girls have gotten a some great jeans, shirts and leggings there for school this year, and I have some Pajamas from JCPenney that i love

  132. Stacy says

    Love that black cardigan. I love that you can take a survey and get 15% off your purchases too!

  133. Nycole says

    JC Penney has done a really good job of stepping up their game in the fashion department. I’d buy stuff there now.

  134. Jen Harriman says

    I found the greatest dress for my oldest daughter to wear in our Christmas photos on JCP online. I would love to win this and get all the kids coordinated outfits

  135. Priscilla says

    JC Penny’s is my mother-in-laws absolute favorite store. She loves the personal service and the prices. I hope to win this for her!

  136. April says

    I shop at JC Penney for work clothes when I can (usually it is Goodwill and thrift stores). They have some nice things to wear for work. I’m really loving that wool men’s coat too, I wonder if it would look good on me?

  137. Erica C. says

    That’s so fun that your neighbors and hubby got to be models! We definitely shop at JCPenney…it’s a great one-stop place where we can all get something.

  138. Chrissy MacCEO says

    I am a very big JCP fan – I think they have great deals, great quality, and a nice selection. Plus, I am a petite size and their petite department is still modern, not frumpy. I could definitely use that $100 gift card :)

  139. Kerry says

    $100 at JCPenney could go a long way with all the sales they have been having lately! I would love to see how far I could stretch it:)

  140. Mistysunrise says

    All the clothes in this post are very nice. It makes me want to go shopping to find these items. :)

  141. Erin E says

    We love to shop at JC Penny. That Sequin Crewneck Cardigan is so cute! Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

    sewmuchstuff at ymail dot com

  142. April says

    I love the cardigan sweater that Katie is wearing! I love shopping at JC Penneys…especially when they have their buy one get one for a penny sale. Great excuse to buy two items instead of one! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  143. Tonya Dean says

    They are having a huge sale next weekend with Door Buster’s starting at 4AM on Friday November 26th. They have some great deals if your crazy enough to get up that early.


  144. kolette modlin says

    I did not know that there was a Claiborne line for men – I will have to check that out next time I go the JCP (which will be this weekend) I love shopping there and now I have another reason to go :)

  145. Teegan Briggs says

    Jc Penney’s always has some great sales. I’ve been a happy shopper there since I was a kid, my grandma used to call it Penney’s :)

  146. Valeen N says

    I used to shop at JC Penney fairly often until we moved. Now I’m happy that we can shop online! They have some cute things at reasonable prices!

  147. Danielle says

    i shop at jc penney all the time! i just fell in love with the i <3 ronson line. it is an obsession but it is just so cute and trendy and functional!

  148. Geoff K says

    We definitely shop at JCP fairly regularly – especially for more formal wear (they do carry some simple, classic lines for men, women, and kids), shoes, and bedding. Thanks!

  149. Mary M. says

    I have shopped at JC Penney brick and mortar stores and JC Penney online and have been pleased with the items I bought.

  150. JohnnyBoy says

    I actually don’t shop there that often because I’m not big on retail, but I do like the wool coat in the picture.

  151. R Hicks says

    I am a big fan of JC Penney and shop there often. Your “models” look great wearing JCP!

  152. Deb Frischkorn says

    We live in a rural area, and there are not many places to shop, but we do have a JC Penney’s. It is one of our favorite stores. My daughter recently bought a bunch of tops at Penney’s, and they were all on sale. We saved $85!!

  153. jjean says

    I used to shop JCP often. Every year, it was my first stop for school shopping with my hard-earned babysitting money. After college, I don’t remember being as near one, so I shopped there much less. A JCP just opened a couple of months ago that is very near and I have already been a couple of times. It is a gorgeous store and fun to shop. It even has a Sephora.

  154. ShellieAndBrutus says

    I love to shop at JCP. They have clothes that are ME. The prices are also very reasonable and they have great sales.

  155. Becky S. says

    You ladies all look great. I especially like Katie’s cardigan. It would be perfect to wear for the holidays!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  156. carol y l says

    I love JC Penney! I see clothing costs have gone up but this would really help my family buy some clothes for the kids. Kids ALWAYS need clothes as they keep growing out of what they have so it costs quite a bit!

  157. tallcapp says

    I have purchased some small appliances in the past at JC Penney. I still have the blender that I got there many years ago, so the quality must be good.

  158. kay wolter says

    I love to shop JC penney’s but lately the Larger size Womans clothing are looking Old Lady styles I have a 14 year old I may be 52 but not ready to look like MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER….and I don’t think She would wear some of the clothes……I love alot of there other things also

  159. Gena says

    This would be so great! I go to JCPenney for everything and now I have a new job so could really use this to get some clothes for work!

  160. Aisling says

    I shop at JCPenney regularly. I can always find clothes for me and hubby, clothes for granddaughters, shoes, linens . . . gosh, just about everything we need.

  161. Lauren says

    I love shopping at JC Penney’s! They always have the cutest outfits for great prices! I would love to win this gift card and take myself on a winter shopping spree! Thanks so much!

  162. says

    I haven’t shopped at JCPenney in a while (largely because I tend to shy away from malls, in general). I do find their selection to be hit or miss. Some of their stuff is too “mature” for my tasted, but on the flip side, I bought a red wool peacoat in 2000 from JCPenney, and that coat is still going strong and looks very fashionable. I get compliments on it every single year!

  163. Iliana Blair says

    I do most of my personal and Christmas gift shopping at JC Penney , from jewelry to baby wear and household goods, I love the quality and the free discount dollar offers!

  164. Dana says

    I grew up with JCP, but where I grew up they were just a small store front where you would stop in and order from the Catalog! As a child, I can’t tell you how many Christmases I spent marking up the toy section of the Holiday Catalog with my wish list :)

  165. Sheri Bantz says

    I shop at JCP regularly with my sister-in-law and niece (age 14). We were just there on Saturday, as a matter of fact! A giftcard would certainly make for an awesome shopping spree! JCP has great prices on quality apparel and wonderful clearance specials!

  166. Amy Delong says

    I like jcpenny’s they have really good sales,and a nice selection of kids/mens stuff

  167. Paula Hafner says

    I usually shop there end of season sales for kid clothes. I don’t really shop there for myself unless it’s for a basic such as a black skirt.

  168. Vicki says

    It’s been a long time since I’ve shopped at JC Penney, but lately the ads have been catching my eye. I guess it won’t be long before it’s time to head out into the world of Christmas shopping! Thanks!!

  169. Kellie Conklin says

    i love JCPenney and I agree, their prices are fabulous! I think you all look great, definitely not old! I actually really like all the clothes that were picked…very cute stuff! Thanks for the giveaway!

  170. Elizabeth Weil says

    JCPenney is one of the only stores that sells the kind of pants and shirt that are required at my job. And with two kids, this gift card would be a big help.

  171. Gary Emes says

    The JCPenny around our area has some of the BEST bargins around the holidays. I hope whoever wins this needs it as much as we do.,…good luck to all

  172. Alison says

    I’d LOVE to win this. We are unemployed but doing our best, so this would be very helpful for Christmas for our kids.


  173. Heather W says

    I’m in my late 20s and agree that its tough to find fashion forward, age appropriate clothes
    Lovefool827 (at) yahoo (dotcom)

  174. Justine says

    I like to shop at JCPenney, sometimes I can get excellent deals and as always their items are great quality! I could definitely use this for my kids and myself, in fact we really really need some new socks!

  175. Julie L says

    I have shopped at JC Pennys for many years…I like their classic styles…in fact I have my eye on a winter coat I would love to have thanks for the giveaway

  176. kelley c says

    I’m actually really feeling Katie’s sweater. It’s hard when you’re too old to be young and too young to be old!


  177. Crystal F says

    We do shop there. I just bought my daughter a super cute Hello Kitty hoddie there Weds. I like to get my daughters’ clothes there. They have adorable girls clothes. Thank you!!

  178. Diane Baum says

    I went to the J C Penney’s at my local mall last week and was pleased to find that they carried the brand Jockey and also had women pull over sweaters.Two items, i thought would be easy to find and I couldn’t find at Target, Kmart and Meijers!

  179. patti scanlon says

    I love shopping at Penney’s and been shopping there since I was a kid. Great quality clothes and the prices are great especially if you hit a sale.

  180. marci h says

    i love the Liz Claiborne collection–these clothes that are modeled are sooooo beautiful–i really like the jacket–if i won this–that’s top on my list!! :)

  181. Betty C says

    I’ve always been very happy with the clothes I get a JC Penney’s. I especially love the Gloria Vanderbilt jeans I buy on a regular basis.

  182. Rylee Antczak says

    Love JCPenny, not only do they always have great coupons to use but they start out at 1/3 the price of most macys stuff and when your dressing 3 people that works out great!

  183. Kathy S says

    I Love JC Penneys, but rarely get to go to the store, because there are three surrounding me, but all are over a 45 minute drive from my home! I do shop with them online though…great sales! My daughter-in-law and her sister are both expecting and have gotten some beautiful maternity clothes at JC Penneys. If I win this, I’d love to “gift” it to my daughter-in-law so that when the baby is born (after Christmas,) she can go shopping for a few new things for herself!

  184. says

    My Family & I always shop at JCP. Because of their variety in clothing, shoes, outwear, especially their clearance. I was able to find a pair of black patent heels on clearance for $14 dollars!

  185. Susan Smith says

    I do shop at JC Penneys because they have a large selection of Plus Size clothes. They also have a nice selection of childrens and teen clothes.

  186. brian e. says

    Thanks for the giveaway…our “tween” daughters love the clothes @ JCPenny, so they’ve got that demographic covered !

    senorpiero [at] yahoo [dot] com

  187. Melissa B. says

    I’ll be shopping for my daughter’s prom dress in a few months and JC Penney’s will be one of my first stops.

  188. Michelle Tucker says

    I just LOVE JCP!!! I’ve a huge love of purses. Once I went there and they were having a huge sale. They had a lot of out of season purses, regularly 60 bucks, on sale for 5 dollars. I walked out of there with 6 purses, and only paid 20 dollars, because I had a 10 dollar coupon. Man, I want another one of those days!

  189. Stacey M says

    JCPenney’s is always on our list when we go shopping for clothes for the kids. The prices are usually fairly reasonable and they have something for every member of the family.

    samman324 (at) gmail (dot) com

  190. Lisa G. says

    I shop a JcPenney for my whole family because they have amazing clearance deals and combined with coupons they are hard to beat!
    lisalmg25 at gmail dot com

  191. Lisa Lindsay says

    JCP is the one store that our whole family loves to shop at. We’ve found the prettiest prom dresses, homecoming dresses, clothes for my husband from the big and tall section, great bargains on the tennis shoes, soft pj’s, etc. We are all able to find clothes that we love and that are comfortable both with the fit and the price!

  192. Sand says

    My best friend’s mom worked at JC Penny’s when I was in middle school and we’d get a discount when we’d shop there through her.

  193. Carolyn says

    I’ve never been a huge Claiborne fan. I’ve just found nothing ever fits right. Then again maybe if I actually had hips and not chicken legs I would have an easier time. I do love JCPenney though, as does the family.

  194. says

    I love JC Penney’s. When they have a sale it is always a really good one! And I love the fact that there are always good coupons available too.

  195. Jennifer says

    My favorite thing at JCPenney’s is getting my kids pictures taken there. They have beautiful layouts and the pictures always come out so nice! We also buy a lot of Steeler and Penguins apparel there. I have looked in many, many stores and their shirts are heads above the selection at other stores.

  196. Sarah L says

    I sometimes shop at Penny’s, usually if I have a gift card there. I’m more likely to shop thrift stores.
    Thanks for the contest.

  197. kathy pease says

    I love JCpenney I always find such great buys and they always have huge discount on their clearance items..when I walk in a store my eyes scan for any clearance signs :)

  198. Erin T says

    I work in retail so I never want to just go out shopping anymore, but the JC Penny store in our town is brand new so I would love to go and check it out if I won this gift certificate.

  199. heather c says

    I love SOME of my neighbors. I might even consider them cool. I believe I am labeled the ‘dork’ neighbor. That’s okay by me.
    I don’t have a JCP very close, but I do love their stuff. I agree that they need the ‘mid-life tween’ clothes for all of us who fit that category.
