The Fall/Winter season has officially hit the East Coast and with it comes a need for cozy tights, luxurious coats and comfortable sweaters. While I love the changing seasons and a changing wardrobe, I don’t always love shelling out a ton of money for new duds.
***Spoiler alert: There’s a giveaway at the end of the style rainbow! ***
Luckily, just in the nick of time, right before my winter shopping, I was contacted by the cool folks over at the TJ Maxx/Marshalls mega stores to do an in-store visit, check out this season’s must-have styles and learn about TJ Maxx! As a long time shopper of both stores I was over the moon to get an insider tour of the store!
My Shopping Day at TJ Maxx
I met my tour guide Mikinzie at the St. Davids Square location and we leisurely perused the store. When I shop, I never have a game plan in mind, more just meandering around to see what I can find. Mikinzie and I strolled and I got to learn some pretty cool tidbits about the company and how they offer designer clothes at such a great price point.
With over 1,600 stores between TJ Maxx and Marshalls, the stores have amazing buying power and source great deals from over 14,000 worldwide vendors. They house a dedicated buying team who keep each store stocked with over 10,000 new items each week! Talk about Power Shopping!
We started at the handbags section. TJ Maxx has an impressive and colorful selection of Italian leather handbags. This season I’m particularly in love with structured bags like this polka dotted one!
What I was really on the look out for was a fitted, warm and retro-inspired coat! TJ Maxx had great options, I particularly loved this pink and black checkered print one from Guess! What do you think?
What I was super surprised to learn was that at several TJ Maxx locations there is an in-store boutique called “The Runway at Maxx”. The Runway carries high designer labels like Diane Von Furstenberg, Alice + Olivia and Roberto Cavalli for a fraction of the cost.
This gold sequined Emilio Pucci blazer was calling my name. “Fajr, come buy me. You will look all shiny and new”, it was whispering. Maybe next trip Pucci!
Fall and winter dressing is all about the finishing touches! Colorful leather gloves are a staple that you can wear season after season and what lady doesn’t love a cozy pair of patterned tights! My tights drawer will be busting at the seams this season!
All in all, it was very cool to learn of all the great merchandise on the racks this season and The Runway at Maxx is going to be my new shopping home. My fall/winter wishlist is now a mile long thanks to my day trip and I’ll be back at TJ Maxx soon to pick up my must-haves.
And because I couldn’t leave this amazing shopping trip without something for you loves, leave a comment telling me what’s on your wishlist this season to win a $100 gift card to TJ Maxx/ Marshalls stores! Yes you read right, $100 dollars!
