    Dress for Success®

Our partnership with Dress for Success® is a natural fit and one we're very proud of. We truly believe in the great work they do helping women access the tools they need to re-enter the workforce. Since 1977, Dress for Success® has helped more than 925,000 women work towards self-sufficiency.

Spring 2019

In 2019, we celebrated our fifth year of partnership with Dress for Success® and designed another exclusive limited-edition collection with O, The Oprah Magazine. This collaboration raised over $1.9 million in sales and monetary donations, and we collected 2,900 boxes of nearly-new, wear-to-work clothing. Together, we have positively impacted the lives of more than 125,000 women to help them reach their fullest potential in work and in life. Lifting women up is our passion and we couldn’t have done it without the incredible generosity of our community of women helping women.

Spring 2018

In our fourth year supporting Dress for Success®, we raised over $1.5 million from our exclusive O, The Oprah Magazine Capsule Collection sales and monetary donations and collected thousands of boxes of nearly-new professional clothing for DFS. Through the partnership, we have now positively affected the lives of more than 100,000 women. Our annual impact is the result of the relationships we share with women in communities across the country to collectively Give Confidence, Hope, and Style.

Spring 2017

March inaugurated our third year of partnership with Dress for Success® and our second collaboration with O, The Oprah Magazine on another exclusive capsule collection. The collaboration helped raise over $1.25 million and over 4,000 boxes of nearly-new professional clothing. Together, we were able to help over 25,000 women (in addition to the 20,000 we helped last year). And, it's not just about those 45,000 women. When you help a woman achieve her goals, you impact her children, her family and her community in a positive way.

Spring 2016

In March, Talbots teamed up with O, The Oprah Magazine to create an unprecedented exclusive capsule collection, with net proceeds benefitting Dress for Success. Sales of the collection, along with clothing and financial donations, helped to raise $1 million. Talbots was able to help over 20,000 women. And we couldn't have done it without the passion and generosity of our Talbots family.

Spring 2015

Our commitment to helping women express their most authentic selves is shared by Dress for Success®. And in Spring 2015 we created a campaign to help inspire and empower women re-entering the workforce. Customers were invited to clean out their closets and bring gently used wear-to-work items to their local Talbots. And encouraged to make a monetary gift.

Susan G. Komen®

Think pink...for a good cause.

It's all about helping women lead full, healthy lives. At Talbots, we have a continuing commitment to supporting the fight against breast cancer through our partnership with Susan G. Komen®.

Susan G. Komen® is saving lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.

Talbots is a proud sponsor of The Komen Breast Care Helpline, which is staffed by a team of caring and compassionate oncology social workers and specialists who provide education, psychosocial support, and information about needed resources in local communities to the nearly 15,000 people who reach out by phoning 1-877-GO KOMEN or emailing each year.

Fall 2019

In our first year working with Susan G. Komen, we collaborated with six internationally renowned female artists, Lulu DK, Gladys Perint Palmer, Libby VanderPloeg, Carolina Melis, Martha Napier, and Nadia Flower, to create a limited-edition collection of one-of-a-kind scarves. Each scarf was inspired by the artists' personal connections with breast cancer, and 20% of net proceeds benefitted Komen.

Fall 2014-2018

Talbots proudly supported National Breast Cancer Foundation® in their mission to fight the disease through early detection and education. Each year, Talbots created a collection or special item that benefitted NBCF with 20% of net proceeds. In Fall 2018, Talbots launched The Art of the Scarf Collection. The collection was created in collaboration with five internationally renowned female artists, including Lulu DK, Caroline So, Annie Davidson, Hannah Davies and Gladys Perint Palmer, to create a limited-edition collection of one-of-a-kind scarves. Each scarf was inspired by the artists' personal connections with breast cancer.
