Sprucing up your work wardrobe can put a new spring in your step and raise your professional appearance a notch or two. (Did somebody say raise?) Since there’s no guarantee about the raise, however, we’ve searched out a dozen retailers with clothing discounts for teachers. These fashion forward and teacher friendly retailers have got you covered.
LOFT offers 15% off full price purchases every day. They also offer sweepstakes, grants, and teacher appreciation nights for you and your coworkers. Check out their blazer collection, including this two button knit notched blazer, to polish your professional style. Or this Blossom Blouse to brighten things up. Sign up to receive exclusive teacher only perks and more here and be the best-dressed teacher out there.

BR has great everyday essentials that combine for a pulled together, professional look. Check out the gray sky belted sweater jacket if you are looking for the perfect layering piece to throw on in your drafty classroom or during an outside recess. The big pockets are so-oooo useful for stashing extra tissues, markers, hand sanitizer, and more.

According to My Educator Discounts, most Old Navy locations offer a discount to educators during Teacher Appreciation Week, which is May 7-13 in 2017. Discounts vary from year to year, but usually range anywhere from 10% to 25%. Check with your local Old Navy store to learn about upcoming Teacher Appreciation promotions.

One of the few retailers we found that gave discounts for purchases made over the phone as well as in store. Teachers enjoy 15% off any footwear item priced $39.95 or higher. Simply present your teacher ID or a pay-stub in one of their stores, or call 800-798-9478, to place your order.

Gives educators 15% off on full-priced items. Simply show a valid school ID at the register. This discount is valid in-store only and cannot be combined with other promotions. Talbots has MANY teacher-tested basics and dressed-up styles, but we loved this A-Line Skort for its practical (and COMFORTABLE) styling that will allow you to get down on the floor, climb the playground equipment, and race your students to the soccer ball—no sweat!
We couldn’t find a teacher-specific discount, but do yourself a favor and stop by the walkingcompany.com for the best prices on shoes that will get you through classes, recess, parent meetings, and after school errands in style and comfort. Their guarantee? If you make a purchase there and find the shoe for a lower price elsewhere, they’ll pay triple the difference! We love the Dansko Professional Clog, which comes in 32 colors and can’t be beat for its stable good looks and durable, everyday functionality.
