Vera Bradley items from Best Wishes are an essential for any college girl. They range in styles and sizes that are perfect for storing your toiletries, a weekend getaway, or toting your laptop to class. Also, you can’t forget to bring a pair (or two) of Snoozies to wear around the dorm room or apartment – they are so soft and cozy! Bonus points, you can throw them right in the washer for an easy clean!







We all know that the first day of school outfit is important, even when heading off to college! Make sure you are dressed to impress this year by checking out Zuester’s new fall arrivals. The slip on shoe style is very popular right now, and how cute are these Sanuks? Make sure to grab a pair before leaving for school!


Now, for the younger students, or should I say the parents of the younger students.

Heading back to school can be an exciting but scary time for kids. New classroom and new teacher, maybe even new school! But the one thing you can count on to make sure their year starts out great is being completely prepared with all the necessities they need. Be prepared with a little style too!

The most important thing, of course, is having all the right school supplies. From pencils, to glue sticks, to notebooks, to art supplies… One thing I have learned is that you can never be too prepared! Pictured above are all things you can find right here in Lincoln Center. Rite-Aid carries basic school supplies, including rulers, tape, notebooks, pencils, and binders. Aaron Brothers is great for art supplies. At Along The Way you can find flash cards, learning games, puzzles, and grade specific materials.

Can’t forget about the after school activities! Kids need to let off some steam after a long day of learning! Play it Again Sports has a variety of new and used sporting goods like footballs, soccer balls, baseball bats, and gloves. Performance Bikes carries different styles of bikes for a range of age groups. It is important to get out there and play for both exercise and fun!

One of my favorite things growing up was picking out my backpack. Here in Lincoln Center we have lots of different options for your kids to choose from! Sassy Pants Children’s Boutique has adorable backpacks and lunch boxes for the little ones heading off to school. Zuesters carries great options for both boys and girls in a variety of sizes. Also, the Vera Bradley brand at Best Wishes carries super cute backpacks for girls of all ages.

Last but very not the least, we can’t forget to thank our teachers! What better way to show your teacher how thankful you are than with a bundlet from Nothing Bundt Cakes! Also, Along the Way has great teacher’s gifts like the mug pictured above.

It is hard to believe that summer is over and school is back in session, but there is so much to look forward to at the start of a new school year! With Lincoln Center Shops here to help you with school essentials, you are already off to a great start.
