Lands’ End celebrates Green Bay Packers team spirit, traditions and tailgating with New Titletown™ Collection
DODGEVILLE, Wis. October 24, 2012 –If 13 world championships aren’t enough, now Green Bay Packers fans have more reasons to celebrate. Two Wisconsin icons – the Green Bay Packers and Lands’ End – have teamed up to launch an exclusive Titletown™ Collection that will be leaping into the Packers Pro Shop and on landsend.com/titletown.
“We’re bringing our expertise in apparel and accessories to fellow Packers fans everywhere. We can’t wait for fans to enjoy our cozy outdoor accessories, rugbys, stadium blankets and more, whether they’re tailgating at Lambeau Field or an armchair spectator,” said Marla Ryan, senior vice president of merchandising, Lands’ End. “Packers fans abound at Lands’ End. The Titletown Collection is our way of having some fun and showing support for a Wisconsin legend.”
The Titletown™ Collection lives up to the winning spirit and lets football fans everywhere show their pride in The Green and Gold. The Collection features Titletown spiritwear and accessories for the entire family – even the family pet.
“It’s great to see Packers spirit is alive and well at Lands’ End,” said Craig Benzel, Director of Marketing and Corporate Sales, Green Bay Packers. “It makes a lot of sense to work with another legendary Wisconsin-based organization to truly show not just Packers Pride, but all the good things that come from so many in this great state.”
Lambeau Luxe, The Pendleton® Stadium Blanket
Lands’ End has partnered with Pendleton to create an exclusive 100-percent wool, 100-percent made-in-the-USA Stadium Blanket in Green and Gold Rugby Stripe. This superior quality blanket exudes warmth and is woven by a 140-year old, family-owned business.
Green and Gold for the Family and Fido
Lands’ End has Packers fans covered from head to toe in green and gold pride. Look for soft, cozy plaid scarves and gloves, as well as chunky-knit striped hats and mittens for cooler game days – or whenever! Wear the team spirit to work or school with Rugby shirts for adults and kids, as well as an adorable striped dress for girls.
Even Fido can show his spirit. The family pet can enjoy and stay warm in a hand-knit Dog Sweater. Each is unique and dyed with natural pigments. Fans will be supporting their team as well the Quechua Indians who made the sweaters.
To show Packers pride around town, look for the green, gold and white striped medium Open-Top Tote. Made from an extremely durable cotton canvas, this tote is designed to stick around.
Finally, for the beach, bar or bathroom, look for thirsty hand towels, bar towels and a Rugby Beach Towel.
“We know Packers pride doesn’t end once fans leave the field,” added Ryan. “We’ve designed a great quality collection to last from game season to season – on and off the field.”About Lands' End®
