NMSU’s Office of Experiential Learning partners with JCPenney to host Suit-Up event Oct. 25

New Mexico State University’s Office of Experiential Learning and JCPenney will host the third annual Suit-Up event from 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 25, at the Mesilla Valley Mall, 700 Telshor Blvd., Ste 2000.


This special event allows NMSU students, staff, alumni and the community an opportunity to purchase professional career apparel at a 30 percent discount in addition to other sales and promotions for both in-store and online purchases including at the JCPenney Salon and Sephora. Attendees should use the west side/salon entrance for this event.

“This is a great event to bring the community together with NMSU students as they prepare to enter into their future careers,” said Marci Salinas, NMSU academic success center coordinator. “JCPenney and NMSU remain focused on protecting the health and safety of its customers and associates through numerous precautions, such as requiring face coverings, offering contactless checkout through its mobile app, which provides an emailed receipt, and diligently cleaning stores with a focus on high-touch areas.”

Guests will receive a free beauty consultation, trial-size sample and 15 percent off Sephora items in-store. There also will be in-store gift card giveaways. To shop online, text NMSU to 67292 to get a coupon and visit https://www.jcpenney.com/m/suit-up-view-all.
