Winter Style Winners

We received so many great photos for our Girlfriend Getaway Sweepstakes that we had to share some of our favorites.  Although there was only one grand prize winner, you’re all winners in our style book.

Thanks to all of our participants for submitting photos this year!

If snow and style are your thing, stay tuned … we’re headed to the Sundance Film Festival next month, where we hope to find plenty of both.  You’ll find Sundance stories here in just a few weeks!

Earthkeepers in NYC

Two weeks ago, we set up shop in the middle of New York City to showcase all things Earthkeepers – including educating consumers about our green initiatives, sharing our Fall 2011 Earthkeepers product collection, and even rewarding random acts of Earthkeeper kindness.  Check it out:

Our Earthkeeper booth was made with 450 pounds of recycled plastic bottles.

Inside the booth, Earthkeeper products (made with recycled and renewable materials) are on display.

Our Timberland street team, looking for eco-conscious people to reward.

Be a hero. Plant a tree: When you plant one virtual tree in our Facebook Tree Planting app, we plant a real one!

You can see more of our Earthkeeper experience in New York City on Timberland’s YouTube channel.  Next up, our Earthkeeper booth and street teams are headed to the West Coast – stay tuned for more photos and footage from San Francisco.

And as a reminder, tomorrow is your LAST CHANCE to vote and submit pics of your mountain chic style for our Girlfriend Getaway Sweepstakes. Be sure to share your photo with your friends, family and social communities to rack up the most votes — the top ten submissions receive a pair of Timberland boots and have a shot at winning the ultimate getaway to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Enter here:

Share Your Style, Win a Sundance Getaway!

Cold weather is no excuse for allowing your good fashion sense to hibernate (another Saturday night in your Snuggie, really?).  Show us what your best winter wardrobe looks like, and you could win a trip for 4 to the 2012 Sundance Film Festival!

Entering is easy:

  1. Go to Timberland’s Facebook page and upload a photo of your “mountain chic” style (I’m thinking Sound of Music meets Project Runway, but define it as you wish).  Be sure to include a clever and descriptive caption, and be quick about it — the contest ends November 9th.
  2. Tell all your Facebook friends to go vote!  The top 10 photos receiving the most public votes from all eligible entries will win a pair of Timberland boots and a chance to win the grand prize.

The Grand Prize Winner will be selected from the top 10 by Timberland judges based on the creativity and originality of both their style and their photo caption.  Win the grand prize and you’ll be on your way to opening weekend at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival with 3 BFFs to enjoy movie tickets, ski passes, spa packages and more.  And since Timberland is the official footwear and outerwear sponsor of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, we’ll be sure to hook you up with Timberland footwear and gear for your big weekend away.

For complete contest rules and details, head over to our Facebook page. Then stay tuned – we’ll be back next month to announce the winner!

Go Hug a Boot!

You may or may not have heard that we are the official outerwear sponsor for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah! Cool, right? What’s even cooler is that Timberland held a contest through Facebook that awarded one winner the opportunity to attend the annual festival, on their dime! Epic, I know!

You can tell by my enthusiasm that I am a huge movie buff. I have been known to say that certain movie stores would not be in business if it weren’t for my rental account! I immediately thought, “I’m in it to win it, I want this SO bad!” and I’m always up for a little competition. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I read further in the company email announcement that employees were not eligible to win the grand prize! I was bummed, but I understood.  As I sulked in my chair I read further and found there was a light at the end of the tunnel: One employee winner would be chosen out of the submissions to win a coveted official filmmaker jacket and a free pair of boots! I guess the closest thing to attending the festival is being able to sport the official gear that is only given to filmmakers and programmers! In fact, only 320 jackets will be gifted during the 10 day festival.

I immediately went to it and started brainstorming how I was going to present my favorite boots and why I was so deserving of this jacket! Finally, I had a light bulb moment and decided the perfect pose and caption to go along with my boots! I was confident it would be the winner! I decided I would do a play on words and tie it in with tree hugging since, firstly, our company logo is a tree and secondly, my Earthkeeper Mount Holly Duck boots are not only the most durable, waterproof, comfortable and functionally stylish boots I’ve ever owned, but in purchasing and wearing them I am being environmentally conscious as well: Double win! Who would have thought that one could make a difference by simply purchasing shoes!? It’s definitely a way for those who don’t necessarily like to get dirty to contribute to a greener world…and look darn good doing it!

So, here is my official submission:

Over the next few weeks, I waited with bated breath and rallied my friends and family on Facebook to vote for my photo! I prayed that the Timberland marketing team would find my submission as clever as I thought it was. That’s all I could do, right?! AND???????

Da na na naaaaaaa!

THEY DID! I was chosen as the winner of the employee contest and am beyond excited to proudly wear my Timberland filmmaker jacket! I bet you won’t argue when I tell you, “It was the best hug my boots ever gave!”

Sundance Contest – We Have a Winner!

Remember the Sundance photo contest we announced in December?  The judges have spoken:

To capture this photo I had to first take off my boots and walk barefoot through the ten degree water to capture this and many other great shots. I should go to Sundance because Films are my passion and I love the great values Timberland represents. – Ethan Ingle

Congratulations to Ethan Ingle who, based on the creativity and originality of his photo and his passion for films, has been selected to join Timberland in Park City, Utah for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.  Our thanks, too, to everyone who participated and voted on Timberland’s Facebook page.
