Green and Gold and Pink
By Madison Miller
Baylor has gained a new line of fashion apart from the Baylor Bookstore.
This year Victoria’s Secret is offering licensed Baylor merchandise through its PINK collegiate apparel collection. Four stores sell the Baylor merchandise located in Waco, Killeen, Temple and Houston. Prices range from $20 to $65 and include things such as jerseys, hoodies, tank tops and T-shirts.
With the program being new to Baylor, there were applications for two girls to become campus representatives that advertise and sell the merchandise to the Baylor population.
Prosper senior Lynsey Scott, and Prosper junior Jennilee Pirtle, were chosen to be the two representatives for Baylor.
“I applied for the position although I am on a pre-law track,” Scott said. “My other interests include event planning and the fashion industry. I would love to do something involving those on the side after graduation.”
As representatives, the women will plan and host campus events and giveaways such as a viewing for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in December.
Their first campus event is from 1-4 p.m. onSept. 13 at Spice Village, 213 Mary Ave. During this time, there will be free food, giveaways, games and prizes.
The goal of the campus representatives is to increase traffic flow to the Victoria’s Secret stores by marketing in-store promotions and merchandise.
“I wanted to be involved with this opportunity because I absolutely love the PINK brand and what it stands for,” Pirtle said. “It’s also a wonderful opportunity to learn how to market and put on events which will come in handy as I pursue a career.”
There is also a digital event happening to win the ultimate back-to-school bash. The digital event will include freebies, games, prizes, models and will feature a musical guest.
