A Mother’s Day giveaway from Mark’s!

Remember last autumn when my new BFFs over at Mark’s offered me (and a bunch of my bloggy friends) a fun makeover to showcase their own brand makeover?

Lookit me, I'm a fashion model! (1 of 3)

All winter long, this was my go-to, no-fail favourite outfit. I love the pants, I love the top and I love that leather jacket madly and deeply. And the boots? This is the first spring ever that I was regretful to think that I’d have to put a pair of boots away for the season.

Ahem, so anyway, this is not just me waxing nostalgic about some very excellent clothes. Mark’s is continuing its makeover theme this spring, and has just launched a fun new contest called Mark’s reStyle:

Last year, Mark’s smartened up many of its stores nationwide and to introduce the refreshed brand to consumers, we held Mark’s Over events in several cities nationwide.

To experience Mark’s as the place for innovative and fashionable men’s and women’s casual apparel and footwear, media and bloggers were treated to a total makeover – including hair, makeup, Mark’s styling and professional photography. The event demonstrated that the new stores better represent what Mark’s has become to Canadians – the place for innovative and fashionable men’s and women’s casual apparel and footwear.

For the Spring reStyle contest, we’re asking men and women from across the country to share their need for a fashion refresh or upgrade.

And check out the amazing prize packages! The two finalists will be able to choose from:

  • the “night life” package: a $1000 Mark’s shopping spree, a $3000 all-expenses paid trip for two people to Montreal including tickets to one of the summer’s hottest concerts, $1000 in spending cash and a $500 iPad 2 to capture the experience.
  • the “beach life” package: a $1000 Mark’s shopping spree, a seven day trip for two to a sun destination of your choice, and $1000 spending cash.
  • the “home life” package: a $1000 Mark’s shopping spree, a $3000 Backyard upgrade package, a $1000 BBQ and $500 patio furniture.

So head on over to Mark’s reStyle facebook page to read more about the contest. But wait! Don’t go just yet, because I haven’t told you about MY giveaway yet.

One lucky person will win a $50 Mark’s gift card right here! If you’d like to win, here are the details:

  1. You must be a Canadian resident to enter.
  2. To enter the draw, visit Mark’s LookBook site and then leave a comment below telling me which of the 19 looks you like. Or, visit Mark’s site and leave a comment telling me which product caught your fancy.
  3. The giveaway ends Friday May 6, 2011 at noon EDT. One winner will be chosen from all entries using random.org.
  4. One entry per person.
  5. The winner will be announced the afternoon of May 6.

Don’t forget to check out Mark’s reStyle contest facebook page, and pssst: Thursday May 5, 2011 is Ladies’ Night at Marks. Save 20% in store from 5 pm to close!

Fun, eh? Thanks to Mark’s for a fun giveaway!!

Edited to add: Yay!! Congratulations to Ann B of Create a Buzz! Looks like your disappearing comment turned out to be lucky after all! 😉

loving look 9 for work and look 10 for play. too bad some of the rockin’ shoes aren’t available at mark’s!

2 Danielle May 3, 2011 at 8:50 am

Look #2 is my style.

3 Amy @ Muddy Boots May 3, 2011 at 9:35 am

I really like the Denver Hayes bra-tanks w embroidery (might even work for nursing!), and the whole Inspiri line is really cute.

Really, it’s just been so long since I shopped, anything would be an improvement over what I have…

4 SleegsSkees May 3, 2011 at 10:09 am

How about 4 for me and 19 for DH? I think his wardrobe needs updated more than mine.

5 Windex May 3, 2011 at 10:12 am

Look 10 is my style but I love the dress in Look 6…may be good to wear to my girl’s 1st communion at the end of the Month…..

6 K May 3, 2011 at 10:30 am

Look 10 for me! Great giveaway, as always.

7 Mary May 3, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Realistically, 2 and 12 are probably what you’d see me wearing, but I really like 3,4 5 and 6…and also kind of 9 and 10…

8 Mary May 3, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Look 10! 10 10 10 10 10

9 Kay May 3, 2011 at 12:44 pm

I love look #9. I’ve just weaned a sweet baby girl, am working to drop that last ten pounds since pregnancy and am looking foward to getting some new clothes before heading back to work at the end of the month.

10 angela May 3, 2011 at 1:36 pm

THIS is my kind of contest:)
thanks for not making me jump thru hoops:))

and i like look 2…but there were definitely more things i could happily mix up into my wardrobe!

11 Batman May 3, 2011 at 2:25 pm


It was kind of sad that there were so few male “looks”. Nevertheless, I like Look 15.

12 Danielle May 3, 2011 at 2:29 pm

Fab contest Dani!! LOVE look 7. And if I won, I’d totally buy that top with my $50! 🙂

13 Valerie May 3, 2011 at 2:35 pm

I like look 2. And *ahem* 18. 😉

14 laura May 3, 2011 at 2:40 pm

look #11

looks very comfy and i could see myself wearing it all the time

15 Heather Rose May 3, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Look #11 it is! Perfect for me when I head back to the office after mat leave #2 … in just a few short months 🙁 Thanks 🙂

16 Coco May 3, 2011 at 3:52 pm

I am not normally a violent person, but I could possibly kill for the red trench..look 1.

17 Fawn May 3, 2011 at 6:19 pm

I’m with Coco!!! I also like 8 and 9… but since I’ll soon be quitting my job, perhaps I should stick with something more cajzs(???), hunh? (Um, how DO you spell that, anyway?)

18 Kerry May 3, 2011 at 6:47 pm

Yanno, I love the gladiator wedge sandals, from the website. So cute!!

19 Kurishii May 3, 2011 at 7:09 pm

Look 10 please!!

20 Laura May 3, 2011 at 8:06 pm

I like look #5!

21 Anna May 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm

#11 for sure!

After almost a decade at home raising child, I’m switching from yoga pants and Lulu to some office friendly stuff. This look combines them both. Keeping fingers crossed!

22 Sara May 3, 2011 at 10:11 pm

I like look 7 for me and look 19 for the bf.

Quite honestly I liked all the looks. I even liked the dresses even though I don’t wear them.

23 Cussot May 4, 2011 at 12:27 am

Look #17 – my husband looks much better in clothes than I do! But the Copper Sole thermal socks are a look that I could rock. I think. Maybe I need a style intervention.

24 Annie May 4, 2011 at 6:19 am

10 and 11 look great to me!!!!
Great contest Dani!!!

25 Kelly May 4, 2011 at 7:25 am

Definitely #7! Casual and fun… But I DO love those curve tech tanks – totally worth it!

26 Vanessa May 4, 2011 at 7:29 am

I love #7!

27 moosilaneous May 4, 2011 at 7:46 am

I’m probably most attracted to look 11 – but I love their pants for fit!

28 Gwen May 4, 2011 at 9:08 am

Look #10 is so me!

29 suze May 4, 2011 at 10:27 am

look #10 or 12. A fashionista I am not.

30 Irene-Ann May 4, 2011 at 10:57 am

I think look #11 is more my style! The shoes are pretty awesome…. must go sandal shopping too if the weather ever warms up around here!!

Hard to choose just one, but I’d think look 11 would be perfect to take me from the office to the classroom to the park with the kids (can you tell I ask alot of y clothes! ;))

35 Jacquie May 4, 2011 at 9:28 pm

I’m loving your look in the photo above, but I think look #11 is perfect for me.

36 Jen May 5, 2011 at 12:03 am

OK, I must be crazy because I can’t see the numbers…maybe because I’m in Firefox? Who knows. Anyway, I like several of them but my favourite is the pink and purple flowered dress. I LOVE purple…it’s kinda become my signature colour. That dress is so springy!

37 Sharon May 5, 2011 at 4:45 pm

I Love Mark’s as you know, and it is hard to pick just one

I like Look 9 and Look 8…And eveything else. Darn that is hard!

38 Sharon May 5, 2011 at 4:46 pm

GOSH I love those grey Shorts!

39 cath May 5, 2011 at 8:49 pm

11 it is for me – perfect for dropping kids off and working from home!

40 Shannon B May 5, 2011 at 9:41 pm

Love look #10! I can’t wait, there’s a Mark’s opening near us next month. I’m in major need of new clothes and their stuff looks like it’s right up my “I’m too old for teen clothes but too young for old lady outfits”!

41 Joy May 6, 2011 at 9:51 am

I like Look #12 – i shop at Mark’s all the time – love their clothes.

42 Sara May 6, 2011 at 9:52 am

I love both the dresses and the comfy yoga/exercise outfit.

43 Ann B May 6, 2011 at 10:17 am

I love look 7! I work at home and this would be so comfy.

44 Shakira Whitton May 6, 2011 at 10:20 am

My picks:
Look 9 for HER
Look 16 for HIM

I’ve heard great things about their dress with the built in bra!!
