Want to get fashionably organized? So many of us approach the New Year with resolutions all about simplifying our lives – and Charlotte Smarty Pants is here to help with this week’s Smarty Sponsor, Carolina Pad.
Carolina Pad was founded in 1945 by former school teacher, principal and coach, Joseph K. Hall II, who wanted to deliver school-based products based on his philosophy of “service, reliability and quality at a fair price.” After decades of producing high quality school supplies, Carolina Pad had a make-over and started developing fashion school and office products for women and girls. Consumers now have high fashion, affordable products at leading retailers like Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Harris Teeter and Staples to name a few.
The best part for us is that Carolina Pad is located right here in Charlotte! Even better, they are offering CSP readers $130 worth of products from their Simply Chic collection (see FABULOUS photo!). The winner will receive a full set of the collection designed by Carolina Pad’s signature designer, Jacqueline Savage McFee (she is oh-so-Smarty and a mom herself!). This giveaway includes a variety of office supplies such as designer file folders, binders, composition books, notebooks, sticky pads & flags, highlighters, pens, mouse pad, binder and tab dividers, desk pad, lap top tote & sleeve and more.
Carolina Pad would also like to tap into our Smarty readers for a Consumer Insights Panel where you will receive invitations to focus groups and take monthly surveys (Carolina Pad has relied on great feedback in order to build their extraordinary products, and they want to hear from you). They are currently recruiting for a session on bags & totes to be held on March 19th in uptown Charlotte. Please visit www.carolinapad.com to apply. Carolina Pad’s 2009 collection will be in stores later this month, so visit their website often to find out more about their great new products.
