JCPenney has partnered with the Office of Career Services at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette for a college Suit Up event designed to help students dress for success and jump start their careers.

This private event will take place at the JCPenney in Stirling Lafayette Shopping Center on Sunday, Feb. 10, to accommodate hundreds of students looking for advice on what to wear for job interviews.

Faculty, staff and alumni from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, along with members of the JCPenney team, will be on-hand to offer insights into the latest career fashion trends, how a suit should fit, what size to buy, how to tie a tie and more.

JCPenney will offer a special EXTRA 40 percent discount to all University of Louisiana at Lafayette students with a valid school ID during this event.

Students will also be eligible to receive a free mini makeover at Sephora Inside JCPenney.

The event lasts from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Students should bring their valid UL ID.
