I'm excited to announce my first blog give-away!

This give-away is courtesy of Mountain Khakis.

TWO lucky winners will receive a $50 gift card from MK to purchase any of their products!  Pretty sweet deal, no?!

I've talked on and off about my love for MK on here and I am frequently wearing their clothing in many-a-photo of myself.  They make bomber stuff that lasts through it all.

As of this spring they have loads more to offer in their women's department - seriously, go check it out.

No, sorry, that link won't take you to "shop now"
in the MK women's department....

For men, the typical get-out-get-dirty adventurer, they offer many options - I've seen men-friends put MK stuff through the wringer and back, it seriously holds up.

My go-to pant from them, the Alpine Utility, is described as "rowdy yet refined".  Which, as I've come to discover, means that I can plow through snow, mud, dirt, rain, and thorns, while still having a form-fitting pant.  No, not a tight oh-my-god-look-I'm-a-girl pant.  A yes-I'm-a-woman-and-I'm-in-the-outdoors pant.

Black Bear Den Assessments, Winter 2011 in my Alpine Utility Pants
Bar Harbor, Maine, Summer 2010 in my Alpine Utility Pants
Labor Day 2011 in my Teton Twill Capris
Planting trees, Autumn 2011 in my Alpine Utility Pant
Hiking in Dolly Sods, Autumn 2011 in my Granite Creek (light-weight and SUPER fast-drying) Pants

I was lucky this year to be asked to be the lady ambassador feature in their 2012 award-winning catalog, which I think everyone knows about by now (I was a wee bit excited and sort of shared this everywhere).

But seriously, MK's stuff is absolutely phenomenal.  I'm really excited to be able to offer you the chance to experience it!

Now, the entry rules for this give-away.

There are FOUR ways to enter, that's right, FOUR.  Which means each of you has the option to enter FOUR times.  But you only have to do one to guarantee an entry!  =)

1. COMMENT on this post telling me what your favorite MK product is after visiting their website.
2. Go to Facebook and "Like" Mountain Khakis ( and then comment back on this post saying you did so.
3. Share this give-away on your blog OR share about it on Facebook and comment back on this post saying you did so (with a link to the blog post if you chose that method).
4. Follow Mountain Khakis (@MountainKhakis) on Twitter and comment back on this post saying you did so.

PLEASE, do NOT comment saying you did all of those things in one comment.  Make them separate comments to be certain that you receive an entry for each!

This give-away will close and winners will be announced (per the usual random number generator) on April 1st.  Everyone will have three weeks to enter and I will (of course) remind you all about it during the in-between time between now and April 1st!

(And a reminder, winners can be from all over, not just in the US.  I know several of you that already follow my blog live in some pretty amazing places around the world and I wanted to be able to offer a give-away that everyone could enter.  Potential international winners will just have to make a quick phone call to MK Customer Service to place the order.)

Without further ado, BEST OF LUCK to EVERYONE!


  1. Ok! #1 - I really like the look of the Lake Lodge pants in willow. The Alpine Utility Pants are a close second. :)

  5. 2nd entry for me too - I "liked" them on facebook.

  6. I'm diggin' the granite creek line. The popover hoodie and the shorts! Love the hoodie, but could get some real use out of those adorable (yet functional looking) shorts.

  7. ...And now my FB friends from far and wide will be visiting your blog. Go Liz go! : )

  8. So happy for you! I browsed and I know it's for men but I love the organic pull over hoodie. :) Congrats on the giveaway! And the feature piece you wrote for them! :)
