(Good Things Utah) It’s that time again to hit the halls for a brand new school season. For many of us, this is a wonderful chance to start fresh and make a lasting impression. However, wearing our old and worn-out clothing can quickly put a damper on any first week back. Walking through those doors with a fresh outfit can make all the difference in the world.

No one knows this better than Downeast, a premier Utah destination for the latest in women’s fashion. The experienced team of designers at Downeast creates everything in-house, meaning each style is unique and made with only the highest quality materials.

This season’s fall collection is perfect for both students and teachers — putting a refreshing, yet comfortable, spin on the traditional back-to-school outfits we’ve grown accustomed to. With the collection’s fall-themed colors and trending designs, heads are sure to turn this year.

Also new to Downeast — their premium athleisure collection. Complete with breathable fabrics as well as subtle colors to mix and match. This new line is excellent for cooling temperatures and just the right price for back-to-school.

Available in-store only, teachers can claim 25% OFF their Downeast purchase from August 8th through the 22nd. This deal is exclusively for teachers and requires identification badges at checkout.
