We’re Taking Wintervention Head On

If you haven’t heard yet, the L.L.Bean Wintervention College Tour is making the rounds to college campuses across the Northeast this fall. We’ve had a blast meeting students across campuses from Boston to Buffalo so far, but we’re just getting started!


So, what happens when a Wintervention rolls on to campus? First, the L.L.Bean Bootmobile arrives with gear, games and giveaways designed to get students outside and exploring this winter. Then, the fun really begins.


Wintervention arrives at UNH, MIT, and Tufts

Our stops at University of New Hampshire, MIT and Tufts brought everything from Jumbo the Tufts' elephant to a night bursting with fireworks.


Wintervention arrives at University of Buffalo and University of Rochester

Beards and gift cards were aplenty at the University of Buffalo and University of Rochester.


Highlights of our trek have included taking part in the University of New Hampshire Homecoming Parade, seeing Jumbo the Tuft’s elephant behind the wheel and getting in tune with the University of Buffalo’s a cappella group, the Buffalo Chips.



There are still more stops on our tour, so make sure to visit our booth to try on our famous L.L.Bean Boots or challenge a friend to a game of boot toss. Check out our schedule to see if we’ll be on your campus:

Rutgers University: 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday, October 30, on the LSC Livingston Courtyard

University of Connecticut: 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday, November 4, on Fairfield Way

We’ll be announcing new stops in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back often as additional schools are added.

At the end of the tour, one winner will receive a $500 L.L.Bean Gift Card and four $250 gift cards so that four friends can get outfitted for the winter season, too.

    Will the Bootmobile be making a stop at any campuses in the Lehigh Valley? (DeSales University is less than 5 minutes from the Saucon Valley, PA Store!)

    The possessive form of “Tufts” would be “Tufts’ ” and not “Tuft’s”. Just sayin’, in the interest of grammatical accuracy, which I expect from L.L. Bean.
