Raise your hand if you remember the thrill of shopping for new back-to-school clothes as a kid.
We always loved picking out new fall clothes and making that crucial decision about which outfit would be “the one” to wear on the first day.
A new school year is a fresh start — and all fresh starts call for a new wardrobe! Kids grow so much over the summer — not just physically but mentally as well. Their style may have changed and they might want to try on a new personality as school gets back into session.
Fall styles are front and center at the mall and we’ve enjoyed seeing all the new ideas. (FYI: If you have a tween girl and you’re at a loss for what to buy, sales associates at Justice in the Mall said there are three trends to watch for: sequined backpacks, high-waisted skirts and jeggings, and Palazzo pants.)
Of course, you can snag some great deals without paying sales tax THIS WEEKEND! August 2-3 is the state of Arkansas’ tax free holiday. WOOT! You can find all kinds of clothes, shoes and other back-to-school necessities on sale right now, so you’ll really save when your final bill rings up — minus taxes.
And while you’re at the mall shopping over the tax-free holiday weekend, keep in mind the Mall will be giving away an iPad Mini to FIVE winners! Register to win at the display at Center Court. (Must be 18 or older to enter; one entry per person.) Click here to see all the details and official rules on the mall website.

If you want to start a new giving tradition with your kids, Project Apple Tree is an opportunity to help kids in need. Through Aug. 10, you can pick a “golden apple” off the tree near the red schoolhouse at center court in the mall and help a child with back-to-school clothes and supplies. The supplies will go to deserving kids at the NWA Children’s Shelter.
The Mall is also now on Instagram!
