Get Class-y: 15 Back-to-School Ideas from Pearl River Mart

The summer’s almost over, which means you have just a few more weeks before it’s time to head back to class. Whether you love or hate the idea, Pearl River can help you rule the school.


No matter your style, we have something for you.


You can’t go wrong with the classics, whether hardcover or hand-sewn.


You can also get fancy with our decorative Nepalese journals or pretty brocade cover notebooks.


Get punny and yummy with these dumpling and dim sum designs from Wonton in a Million.



What better way to accompany spiffy new notebooks than with spiffy new pencils and pens?

Pens and Pencils

If mechanical pencils are your thing, you have a choice of two bears: Rilakkuma and panda, which also includes a pen. For regular pencils, we have the bamboo and colorful varieties.


You'll need to keep those pencils sharp somehow! These owl and rabbit sharpeners are just too cute not to use.


Now where to put your new writing implements? How about in some kawaii zipper pouches? You may also like this natural bamboo canister and this deluxe dragon cup. And if you prefer things a little weird, this bok choy shaped holder and these milk carton pouches are for you.
