Spotlight on “Carolina Pad” (Giveaway)

New Carolina Pad logo



A family company founded in 1945, Carolina Pad made a bold strategic move in 2000 — introducing fashion school and office products. This decision not only transformed the company, it changed the industry as well. Fashion school and office supplies are now a staple in stores across the U.S. EyeCandy-collection3Over the years, Carolina Pad products have developed a loyal fan base. Thanks to a passionate design team, a dedication to innovation, and a product development process that relies on consumer research, our on-trend designs and superior functionality have made our collections favorites among women.

Carolina Pad has made a commitment to giving back through its “Commerce with a Conscience” program, which supports local and national programs that promote children and families. In the Charlotte, N.C. region, we support Classroom Central, a free store for teachers who work in low-income schools. Our Kendall Kollection,(read Kendall’s story below) is the result of a partnership with Signature Designer Jacqueline Savage McFee and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). A portion of the proceeds from this collection goes to leukemia research and support.**



When I was a little girl I could not wait for the day my mom would take me shopping for school supplies. Oh my goodness! I loved the smell and look of new paper, crayons, folders, binders, erasers….I just loved it!

SimplyChic-collection_updatI know some you might think that I am crazy when I say that…but there are those of you reading this that are nodding your head in agreement.

I still love getting a brand new notebook or box of crayons. I was in heaven when I received a huge box of amazing, beautiful, useful and fabulous items from Carolina Pad. It was all I could do to make sure that I shared with the twins.

Carolina Pad stationary products are the ones that you drool over at the stores. I received many different samples from the various collections and could not choose a favorite. Notebooks, pencils, sticky pads, calculators, binders….all beautiful!PatternPlay3

I did decide to let my girls give a few items the “twin test” (read destruction test). The IE Kiddos love to write, draw and create lists so they each took pencils, notepads and folders. Off they went to explore their limited vocabulary and writing skills…after all they are only 6. My goal was to see how long the Carolina Pad products would last in the hands of children. It has been a while and the products have passed with flying colors.

I love beauty and fashion but when it comes to stationary products you also need durability, quality and practicality….Carolina Pad does both. When products marry fashion and function...I am a happy camper. After testing their products it is no wonder that Carolina Pad is a forerunner in the stationary industry. Target and Staples should be scrabbling to carry the Carolina Pad product line.

Carolina Pad Collections are exquisitely detailed, perfectly practical and definitely have The IE Mommy’s seal of approval.



When Jacqueline Savage McFee, signature designer for Carolina Pad – the industry leader in trendy school and office fashion products, got the devastating news that her two-year-old cousin, Kendall Sierens, was diagnosed with leukemia, it brought things into perspective for her.

It also created a spark. The Kendall Kollection – a collection of colorful high-end school supplies inspired by the artist’s young cousin – was born in 2008 and has been raising funds and awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The partnership between Jackie McFee, Carolina Pad and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society continues for 2009 with fresh new designs. This wildly successful collection is available at major national retailers including Wal-Mart, K-Mart and Office Max, as well as grocery and drug store chains.

Kendall is now almost six-years old and in remission, but the battle continues for thousands of other children just like her. We look forward to another year of helping The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in its effort to find cures and better therapies for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
