Lands' End to Become New VCS School Uniform Supplier
We are proud to announce the selection of Lands’ End, the nation’s leader in school uniforms, as our new uniform supplier. Lands’ End offers our students a wider selection of uniform pieces and new styles, while also giving parents the convenience of online ordering and discounted pricing – with frequent 40% off sales.
“We believe Lands’ End provides the perfect combination of high-quality merchandise, affordable pricing, and superior customer service for our families,” said Head of School Tom Konjoyan.
The switch to Lands’ End also allows us to strengthen our uniform policy, including a return to uniform-only pants, shorts, and skirts. We will communicate new guidelines and policies soon and will give students plenty of time to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year, when the new uniform policy will go into effect.
To ease the financial burden of moving to a new uniform, we will “grandfather” many of the items from this year’s uniform selections, including our current red, gray, and black uniform polo shirts, into next year.
The move to Lands’ End comes on the heels of a difficult summer/fall with our former uniform supplier, Parker/True Grits, and the recent closure of its Montrose retail store. Our uniform committee met with numerous leading uniform vendors, and we are confident that Lands’ End is the right choice for our school community.
Our pledge is to make the shopping experience more effective and efficient for our families. In addition to an online store, which will be available soon, we will have a “pop up” in-person fitting event this spring/summer to allow students to try on and sample the new styles. We will also keep many sample styles and sizes at the school for student(s) to try on as well.
We are very excited for this new partnership, and are confident you will be pleased with Lands’ End. Please be on the lookout for more information about the transition and the launch of our new online store.
