Macy’s is bringing back its American Icons campaign for a second year featuring fashion from big-name brands, events and a partnership with Got Your 6 to support American veterans.
The initiative will kick off in May with a variety of family events inspired by America’s favorite pastimes and fashions from top designers.
Macy’s customers will be able to shop for exclusive merchandise from the country’s most popular brands with specially-curated collections from designers including Calvin Klein white label, Tommy Hilfiger, I.N.C. International Concepts, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Nautica, Finish Line and more.
“Macy’s celebration of America really connected with our customers and associates last summer,” says Martine Reardon, chief marketing officer, Macy’s. “Our charitable program to benefit Got Your 6 and America's veterans raised millions of dollars during our first American Icons campaign, and we are excited to once again support this important cause. We’ve also built on last year’s success with a parade of fun, summer-themed events and the latest fashion from popular brands represented by some of our country’s best known talents including Ryan Lochte, Ireland Baldwin, Brett Eldredge and Jana Kramer, as well as Tommy Hilfiger’s To Tommy From Zooey collection with Zooey Deschanel, all while paying tribute to the people, places and things that make this country so special.”
To support Got Your 6, which is dedicated to improving veteran reintegration, Macy’s again will offer a special savings pass to benefit the charity. Kicking off May 17 with Got Your 6 Saturday, customers can give $3 at any register and receive a savings pass for a day they choose. One hundred percent of the purchase price will be donated to Got Your 6 and its nonprofit partners.
