The L.L.Bean Bootmobile is heading back to school

The temperature is dipping and the days are getting dark earlier which means winter is coming – and so is our L.L.Bean Bootmobile.


Starting today at University of New Hampshire, the L.L.Bean Bootmobile officially kicks off its third annual “Wintervention College Tour,” traveling across the Northeast to inspire students to get outfitted and get outdoors. This year, the larger-than-life mobile version of our iconic boot will visit numerous college campuses – rolling in with outdoor-inspired gear, games and giveaways to ensure students are fully prepared to enjoy a season full of outdoor fun.

While on campus, we’re inviting students to stop by the L.L.Bean Bootmobile and booth to discover a full array of L.L.Bean products, including our Traverse and Active lines; challenge a friend to a game of Bean Boot Toss; and participate in an enter-to-win contest for a chance to receive a $500 package.

That’s not all  – the first 15 students who show up at each stop wearing L.L.Bean gear will receive a $10 Gift Card.
