Lee's Colorwashed Khakis (You Can Win 1 0f 5 Pairs)!

So I come home this morning, after dropping my kids off at school, and what do I see on my doorstep?

A package from Lee!

As you all know, I'm one of the new Lee Fit Ambassadors (I'm preening myself now, feeling all important and stuff), which means Lee occasionally asks my opinion on some of their fantastically fitting line of jeans and khakis and what have you.

And you know what I have?

A really cool pair of Lee's new Colorwashed Khakis!

I wish you could see my pair up close and IRL--my camera really does not do them justice. Plus, you know, that's my butt, not a model's, so...yeah. *sighs*

Anyway! The pair I received are this beautiful shade somewhere between, in my opinion, salmon and coral. In fact, the color name is Spiced Coral, and that sounds about right. They're bright and breezy, just right for Spring, without being too overwhelming. They are nice and long and flattering to the line of your leg, but you can roll up the legs, too--there's even contrast piping on the cuff.

I don't know how Lee picked this color out to send me, but they did a great job, because these khakis will go really well with my wardrobe. I'm looking forward to wearing them to Tennessee over Spring Break, where will be hanging out in log cabin and doing some (easy!) hikes through the Smoky Mountains National Park.

So, I know what you are all thinking: Hey, that's really great, Viv, good for you and all, but we're sitting here, envious, so could you stop talking about the Colorwashed Khakis already?

And the answer is: No.

But!

Lee is going to let me give some pairs away to you, too!

So, here's the deal: Lee is coming up with a brand new website, with a Fit Finder tool which is just going to rock your world...and it's not quite ready just yet.

Right now, you can check out the Colorwashed Khakis online here (they're available in JC Penney stores). That, by the way, is how great they look on an actual model, in case my picture made you wonder.

We're going to give away 5 pairs of Lee Colorwashed Khakis because I can handle that many without going crazy planning for Spring Break, okay? Okay!

To Enter: Leave a comment below this post with what you think about this new offering from Lee. Please don't just put that you want to win a pair, that's a given. I'd love to hear your favorite colors, why you like Lee, etc.
I really want to spread the word around about these, so here's how to get additional entries:

Tweet about this contest on Twitter!
Blog about this contest and put my button in your sidebar

Important: Lee is the best, IMO, but they don't have infinite quantities of these in your size just lying around, so if you are one of my winners, I'm going to need a few color choices from you, okay?

Deadline to Enter is Easter Sunday, April 12th!

Good luck!

Oh these are too cute!! I love the strawberry and sunlight yellow colors.
What I like about Lee is they offer petite sizes, which is so hard to come by when you are super short like me! Thanks!

I like Lee because they have been around since before I was in high school, and that's going back, and they're always coming out with great new cutting edge products, as well as tweaking the standard classics.

I like the cocoa color. I also like how they have back flap pockets - a must in my opinion!

Shel said...

I like the fact that they already look broken in and soft. I adore the cocoa colored ones and have some great tops that would compliment them perfectly. Lee always make pants/jeans that fit real women and they're always comfortable and stylish. I have a pair of Lee jeans and I'm never uncomfortable wearing them; they're like a well-worn friend for me.

I adore Lee pants. I still have Lee jeans from years ago and they are still in great condition. I love these capris because they have so many plusses. I love the the cocoa and the sunlight yellow. These would be great for hanging around the house or going out.

I love the new colors, if I was to win I'd win for my Mom since Lee doesn't yet cater much to my size.. I'm really skinny.. (size 0-1). I know my Mom would love the sunlight yellow or the white!

I like the cocoa and the blue and what I think distinguishes these from other capris is the ability to wear them rolled up or straight down.

JenniferB said...

My favorite color is cocoa but I'm partial to brown- love capris I have a pair of lee capris they fit great and are so comfortable

Selinda said...

I love the vibrant colors. The green and the white ones are wonderful to me. Lee Jeans are a staple in our home. We depend upon their quality. All age groups here have atleast one pair of Lee Jeans at all times. I wear Misses size 12 and I hope these Khakis are in my future!

bavaria said...

My favorite color is cocoa! thay look great and i am soooo ready for spring :)

thanks

Alyssa said...

I love the Sunlight Yellow and the Riviera Blue--they both look so cheerful and bright. But why don't I see the Spiced Coral on the JC Penney site? That color is so cute! I love how the colorwashed khakis are made of cotton/spandex, because I can definitely use a little stretch now and then.

CAROLINA said...

I would like a pair of strawberry capris.

All my pants/capris are so baggy in the tush area, looks like I'm wearing a diaper. These look like they would give a nice, but not tight, fit.

I also like that they fit below the waist, again a comfort point.

Lastly, you can cuff them so they must not be tight around the calves. Comfort once more.

These are simply put, pretty and comfortable capris.

I really would like to win them.

Betty N said...

The colors are great! I really like the sunlight yellow and the cocoa. I am happy they have petites!

GENEVIEVE said...

The cocoa color is the best.....among all those beautiful colors!
Thanks for the give away!

Betty N said...

These are so pretty I would want more than one pair! My fav color is the sunlight yellow. I am glad that they have them in petite sizes.

I live in Florida and most of the time I wear capri's. I love the lee brand, they seem to be the only brand that I can get to fit my body. I like the cocoa, jade green and riviera blue. I think its great that lee is putting together a way for woman to get the perfit jeans. I have had some of my lee jeans for years so I know they are long lasting dependable and worth the money spent.
Thank you for the chance to win a pair of lee capri's.

I like the fabric quality of Lee's. I have several pair that have been washed at least 70 times in cold water and the fabric has not thinned or faded. I like the waist style/button on their new colorwashed khakis. I would choose the Sunlight yellow or Cocoa.

I think new offering from Lee is awesome. I have always love Lee because the fit so well.

I would love to own a pair of Lee's Colorwashed Khakis in Coco

dani said...

I like the cocoa color and not just because I love chocolate!

Alan D said...

I am not a fashion expert, but these seem different. I could see my girlfriend wearing these and I wouldn't mind. The sunlight yellow is a nice color for summer. The other colors are also nice and cheerful. Thank you.
