MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., Nov. 02 /CSRwire/ - Kohl's Department Stores (NYSE: KSS) has a stylish way for customers to support women’s health and give back this holiday season with Kohl’s Cares® cause merchandise created by world-class designer Vera Wang for her exclusive brand, Simply Vera Vera Wang, available only at Kohl’s. Now through the end of January 2012, the limited-edition apparel, accessories and gifts can be found in all 40 Wisconsin Kohl’s stores and online at Kohls.com, with 100 percent of the net profit donated to support the fight against breast cancer.

Simply Vera Vera Wang cause merchandise caters to women on-the-go during the busy holiday season, including everything from statement jewelry and clutches to fashionable yet functional coffee cups and totes.

“We are thrilled to offer Simply Vera Vera Wang cause merchandise, designed by Vera Wang, in time for the holidays,” said Julie Gardner, Kohl’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “We launched the breast cancer cause merchandise program last year with a collection from Simply Vera Vera Wang. The program resonated so well with our customers that we are offering a second collection, making it easy for them to support the cause this season with great 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.
