Back-To-School Shopping

July 30, 2019

It’s that time of year again…time for back-to-school shopping!

We know all the kids look forward to it and the parents, well, not so much. Thankfully, The Wharf has you covered so you can find everything all in one place! We’ve gone around to some of our shops and found the most trendy items that are also kid/teenager approved.

Let’s start with shoes! Seaside Shoes & Swim has all the newest trends and the cutest shoes for girls. They’re also a great place to get custom John Hart Design Backpacks in any color with your little one’s initials or symbols of your choice. And they have the perfect earrings and hair bows and ties so your outfit will look magnificent on that first day back.

For all the boys and girls who love the great outdoors, Sand Dollar Lifestyles is your go-to for Patagonia, New Balance, Olukai, Aftco, and more! Whether you are making an outfit statement, or you are rocking the college campus lounge, Sand Dollar Lifestyles has everything you’ll need. Be sure to stop in to check out their great selection of backpacks, shoes, clothes, water bottles, and Kavu purses for the ladies.

If your kids are buttoned-up guys or gals, we have the perfect shirts! The Southern Tide is a super lightweight button-down that will keep you cool in this Alabama heat, and Shades has a fantastic selection for you to choose from. Speaking of the heat, be sure to look at their large selection of sunglasses you can choose from Ray Bans, Randolph, Maho, Oakley, and more.

For all the new and returning college ladies, check out Utopia for the sharpest, most trending outfits! From top to bottom, you can get the perfect pair of sandals to go with Judy Blue jeans and the perfect off-the-shoulder top. This shop has all the best boutique brands that will keep you looking fresh and cool all school season long!

If you are planning on doing all your shopping this Friday, be sure to stay until 5pm for our Back to School Bash! Admission is FREE! We will have a Dunk Booth, DJ & Dancing, Craft Area, Trivia, Spelling Bee, FREE snacks, Photobooth, and to end it all…an Ice Cream Glow Party! The Back to School Bash will be in The Port right across the street from the Ferris Wheel. And don’t forget, it’s for a good cause—bring school supplies or donate your dollars and we’ll send all the proceeds to local schools in our area.

Back-to-school shopping, a big end-of-summer party, and supporting our local schools. Sounds like a great way to kick off a new school year!
