Lucky Breaks Update: Who Won the Subaru?

Remember when we were giving away that 2012 Subaru Impreza on Facebook last spring? Well, we have a winner: Marissa Parker, 23, of Enfield, CT. She was in complete disbelief when she received our notification email: “I remember just looking at the phone and thinking—this must be a joke,” she says. “I was on my way to the gym, but pretty soon I was jumping up and down in the parking lot!”

On August 23 at 4:30 p.m., Marissa arrived at her local West Springfield, MA Subaru dealership to pick up her new ride—in her chosen color of marine blue. “I couldn't believe the time finally came,” she says. "I was so excited to drive the car!"

To congratulate Marissa, we of course had to send her a Lucky keychain. “My kitten took off with the ribbon as soon as I unwrapped the box it came in,” she says, adding that she drove said kitten, a recent rescue, to an appointment at a mobile clinic, soon after receiving the car. A few days later, it was off to a camping trip in New Hampshire. “We ended up driving about 500 miles on less than a tank of gas—pretty amazing,” she says.

But we wanted to know: Where would she drive her Subaru the next time she went shopping? The answer: Her favorite shopping center, where she’ll stock up on LC Lauren Conrad at Kohl’s (Marissa’s a huge fan and so are we—especially since LC spoke at our most recent FABB conference!). Congrats again, Marissa!

Subaru put together a Pinterest page to commemorate Marissa’s score—check it out. And click here to read more Lucky Breaks winners’ stories!
