2018 Suit Up UW

Join us for the Suit Up UW Event!

Don’t get caught under-dressed at a professional interview or networking event again with the inaugural Suit Up sale at JCPenney! For one day only, the UW Career & Internship Center will be partnering with JCPenney to bring you an opportunity to purchase career apparel at an extra 40% off discount in addition to any other sales and promotions. This is an opportunity for UW students to present themselves as professionally as possible while reducing the financial burden that professional clothing can sometimes cause. Current UW students from all three campuses are welcome to attend.

What Suit Up IS:

  • A great sale to make it easier for students to get dress clothes (including suits, dresses, sport coats, dress pants, shoes, & accessories)
  • An opportunity to learn about how employer-specific outfit expectations fit into a company’s office culture
  • A chance to get advice on putting professional looks together, whether it be an outfit, hair, or mini Sephora makeup consultation.
  • A chance to win fun prizes! (more information day-of)

What Suit Up ISN’T:

  • An all-store or store-wide sale; only select career dress apparel will be on sale at ONE JCPenney location
  • Open to everybody; only current UW students from all three campuses are eligible to attend
  • Personal shoppers; we’ll give you advice but you’ll have to make the decision from there
  • A shopping-spree sale; the intent is to make these items more accessible to students


  • Will be at the Northgate JCPenney store: 401 NE Northgate Way, Seattle, WA 98125
  • We will meet at the indoor entrance to JCPenney within the mall (near the food court)
  • The sale begins on Sunday, January 28th from 6:30pm – 9:30pm
  • You must have your Husky card to be admitted and to receive the sale coupon
