First 250 Students to Receive Sephora Inside JCPenney and JCPenney Salon Giveaways While Supplies Last

JCPenney has partnered with the career service center at the Michigan State University for a college Suit Up event designed to help students dress for success and jump start their careers.

This private event will take place at the JCPenney in Meridian Mall after the store closes this Sunday, Sept. 9, to accommodate hundreds of students looking for advice on what to wear for job interviews. Faculty, staff and alumni from the Michigan State University, along with members of the JCPenney team, will be on-hand to offer insights into the latest career fashion trends, how a suit should fit, what size to buy, how to tie a tie and more.

JCPenney will offer a special 40 percent discount to all Michigan State University students with a valid ID during this event. Through this substantial discount, men can easily purchase a Stafford suit jacket and pants, shirts, ties, belts and shoes for under $200. Women can buy a Worthington suit jacket, skirt, shirt and shoes for under $100.
