Warner’s Unbelievable UnWire

Thursday, February 21, 2013

From the brilliant minds at Warner's comes the bra you've been waiting for: The Unbelievable UnWire. We've dreamed of a bra with the support of an underwire, without the underwire. Of a bra that doesn't require hand washing. Of a bra that can survive through the rigors of a typical underwear drawer, that will provide support with – can it be done? - comfort! Well, they've done it. The Unbelievable UnWire features bendable, flexible "unwire," which replaces traditional underwire, thereby eliminating the poking and digging of a typical bra. Not to mention that it comes in two silhouettes – contour and push-up – and an amazing selection of both basic and bold colors. Don't wait. Shop now. It's beyond time to embrace everyday comfort.


What’s Your Furniture Style?

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Traditional. The classic blue blazer… the little black dress… a string of pearls… Some things never go out of style. Classic, elegant furniture lives in this category. We’re talking about skirted sofas, curved and carved wood and dark cherry finishes – rich, timeless pieces that last a lifetime.

Updated. Do you prefer simple, clean design with a modern touch? An updated environment is for you. Straight lines, graphic prints and darker wood tones – these are the details to look for when you’re decorating your home.

Casual. Is your style more relaxed? This is casual furniture – somewhere in the middle between traditional and updated.  Solid color fabrics, plaids, mid-tone wood tones: these are casual elements.

Still trying to determine your home’s aesthetic? Visit one of our Furniture Galleries and take advantage of our free interior design service!

Registry Must-Have: Cutlery Sets

Friday, February 15, 2013

A sharp knife is the key to making your kitchen prep work quick and easy.  Not all knives are created equal; each is designed for a specific task. Investing in a quality set of knives now and, with proper care, your knives will last a lifetime. Here is a breakdown of what knife to reach for when:
  • Chef's Knife - Also called a French knife. This knife has a long, wide blade making it ideal for chopping and mincing. The point of the knife rises off the cutting surface, allowing you to use a rocking motion as you cut. This will be the knife that you reach for most often, as it is perfect for all sorts of dicing and slicing tasks.  
  • Paring Knife - A small knife, generally 3-5 inches long, with a straight, sharp blade. This knife is designed for peeling or cutting food into small pieces.  
  • Bread Knife - This knife has a very long, straight blade with a serrated edge making it perfect for slicing bread, splitting buns or cutting up large tomatoes. 
  • Steak Knife - This knife is used at dinner table and is used for cutting main entrees such as steak, chicken or pork chops.
  • Tomato Knife - The junior cousin to the bread knife, the tomato knife also has a serrated edge that is used to cut smaller foods that have a tough exterior and a soft interior, like tomatoes or pears.  
  • Utility Knife - A small, lightweight knife used for miscellaneous cutting tasks.

I’m confident that any look from our top ten dress selections will have even my little girl tickled pink to put down her Easter basket, wipe the chocolate off her face and get dressed up for the big day.

Love Your Heart

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. is working with the American Heart Association (AHA) during the month of February, American Heart Month.

Through the relationship, Bon-Ton Stores has created the "Promise to Love Your Heart" campaign, giving customers the ability to participate in raising heart health awareness.

Bon-Ton will provide heart health tips, healthy recipes and a link to the AHA website, on our family of websites, Facebook and Twitter.

Bon-Ton Stores hopes to raise over $100,000 through the campaign to donate to AHA. There are four opportunities for consumers to get involved in supporting AHA at Bon-Ton Stores nationwide and to promise to "Love their Hearts."

From February 1st through the 28th customers will be given the opportunity to purchase a $5 Community Day booklet and designate their donation to the AHA.

Customers can also text “Heart” to 266866 to receive a $10 off $25 coupon and Bon-Ton will contribute $1 to the cause for each text.

On Facebook, fans of Bon-Ton can make a promise to ‘Love their Hearts’ to be entered to win a $100 gift card. (Associates are not eligible to win the $100 gift card.)

One random, lucky winner will be chosen on each Facebook page (Bon-Ton, Boston Store, Bergner’s, Carson’s, Elder-Beerman, Herberger’s and Younkers) at the end of the campaign.

For each promise Bon-Ton will also contribute $1 plus an additional $1 for every user who shares their heart healthy promise on Facebook or Twitter up to $20,000 for donations driven by social media.

Visit one of our Facebook pages today to make your promise:
Boston Store

On Twitter, for every follow and heart healthy retweet, Bon-Ton will donate $1 to the cause. Twitter users are also encouraged to use the hashtag #HeartMonth for the entire month of February.

Brendan Hoffman, President and CEO of The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. said, “The American Heart Association is a terrific organization that helps raise awareness to combat heart disease. In working with the AHA, we hope to share valuable information to help people live a heart healthy lifestyle.”
