Kohl’s Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) invites customers to wear bows and polka dots while joining the fight against breast cancer this holiday season with a new collection from the Kohl’s Cares® cause merchandise program. The newest collection, designed by Lauren Conrad, will be available now through February 3 and offers fashionable, on-trend apparel, accessories and gifts which can be found in all 40 Wisconsin Kohl’s stores and online at Kohls.com/Cares, with 100 percent of the net profit donated to support the fight against breast cancer.

Available for only $5 and $10 each, the LC Lauren Conrad collection features a variety of chic and stylish apparel and accessories that support women’s health. From tees, pajama pants and chemises to headbands, slippers and jewelry, all items are designed in holiday shades of red with classic LC Lauren Conrad bird prints, polka dots and bows while sporting the signature pink ribbon. In Wisconsin Kohl’s stores, the breast cancer cause merchandise has its own center aisle display where all items are located in one spot to make it easy for customers to support the cause.

“We are excited to offer our newest collection, designed by Lauren Conrad, from our Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program,” said Vicki Shamion, Kohl's senior vice president, public relations, social marketing and community relations. “This new collection is perfect for the holiday season and allows customers to support the fight against breast cancer by giving stylish, yet affordable gifts that give back.”

Kohl’s cause merchandise supporting the fight against breast cancer is available year-round, with 100 percent of the net profit donated to the cause.
