10 of the Best Places in Houston for Back to School Shopping

houstonbacktoschoolSecond only to the winter holidays, the back-to-school shopping season is one of the busiest of the year. Kids grow so quickly that replacing their entire wardrobe at least once a year is a must, while keeping up with the trends in technology and the supplies on teachers’ lists is non-negotiable. Thankfully, the Houston area offers a wide array of shopping outlets that will allow you to cross every item off of your child’s back to school shopping list with relative ease and minimal stress. These are ten of the can’t-miss spots when you’re outfitting your little one for another year of academic excellence.

1. Clothes for Kids Resale

Keeping kids’ wardrobe up-to-date and fitting properly can be a full-time job, not to mention an expensive one. That’s where Clothes for Kids Resale, Houston’s oldest consignment shop for children’s clothing, enters the picture. Stocked with gently worn and stylish clothing at attractive prices, this is one spot you can’t afford to skip during the back to school rush.

2. Little Lords and Ladies

When you need to knock out a shopping trip and a haircut in one fell swoop, Little Lords and Ladies certainly fits the bill. With a high-end clothing store and a kid-specific salon on-site, you’ll be able to score great clothing finds while your little one gets the trendiest cut of the season.

3. Walmart

From clothing to pencils, from sneakers to staplers, there’s little you won’t be able to cross of of your back to school shopping list through this mega-retailer. The biggest of all big-box stores, Walmart offers competitive prices and a staggering selection for all your kids’ back to school needs.

4. Tulips & Tutus

A small boutique offering a selection of books, toys and clothing, Tulips & Tutus is the perfect place to snag unique clothing that sets your child apart from the crowd. There’s also dress-up clothing to foster imaginative play after school, along with high-end products from Adan and Anais and Melissa and Doug.

5. Little Patooties

Nominated for the Best Children’s Boutique award through the Houston A List, Little Patooties stocks clothing for infants through preteens in styles ranging from casual to formal. On the higher end of kids’ boutiques, Little Patooties isn’t the place to score great bargains but is a great stop for the little trendsetter in your family.

6. Target

Known for offering designer clothing at department store prices, Target is on the higher end of the big-box spectrum without being exorbitantly expensive. As an added bonus, you’ll also be able to snag the school supplies your child needs in one trip.

7. Janie and Jack

Chock-full of adorable fashions for kids, Janie and Jack is one of Houston’s premier destinations when it comes to clothing for the smaller set. Classic clothes that allow kids to look like kids while still retaining the class and style of timeless pieces for adults, this is the place to be if you’re looking to stock up on staples for your little fashion plate.

8. Crayons Children’s Resale Shop

When spending a fortune for clothing that will be outgrown or ruined in a matter of months seems extravagant and isn’t in the budget, a stop by Crayons Children’s Resale Shop may be in order. Clean, organized and full of good quality items and prices that can’t be beat, Crayons should be at the top of your list for back to school bargain hunting.

9. The Children’s Place

A chain specializing in kids’ clothing at fair prices and of great quality, The Children’s Place is the ideal stop for snagging the better items in your little one’s back to school wardrobe. Located in the Galleria, The Children’s Place is also known for offering hot promotions that lead to huge savings.

10. Houston Premium Outlets

When it comes to high-end shopping at big-box prices, you just can’t beat the retail outlet. Houston Premium Outlets offers a variety of stores full of kids’ fashions, along with plenty of major labels for adults. Shop for the entire family in one trip, and stock up on the great deals available in every store.
