Summer Luxe for Less at @Marshalls & @TJMaxx


Summer 2012 trends at Marshalls and TJMaxx

I’ve always been a bargain shopper but since moving out on my own, I’ve become even more cost conscious (the price of rent and utilities in NYC is insane). Shopping during sales, using coupons and frequenting discount retailers is now a way of life. I’ve spent many a lunch break perusing TJMaxx for new clothes and home decor items. Marshalls is my go to for sheets (every day is like a white sale) and shoes. When I received an invitation to attend the stores’ Summer Soiree to preview the summer collections, I RSVP’d right away.* So, here’s what I found:

This orange crochet top is $19.99 at Marshalls.

On the fashion front, both stores have a bevy of current trends. Red, white and blue nautical pieces are perfect for 4th of July festivities. A cool orange knit that was on display is two summer trends in one (orange and crochet are huge this season) and since it’s only $19.99, you don’t have to worry much about it being out of style next summer.

As a rule of thumb, I invest more in classic pieces – blazers, dress pants, pencil skirts that are fashionable year in and year out – but when it comes to trendy items, I always look for a bargain. Anything under $20 is considered a steal.

Margarita party anyone?

Now that I have my own place, I can’t wait to entertain and both stores have the perfect items for hostess with the mostest. The bright orange cocktail glasses would be great for serving frozen drinks at your next margarita mixer and the flip-flop shaped coasters would ensure that you don’t have to clean icky watermarks off your coffee table afterwards.

I spotted a bunch of things I’d like to take home with me at the TJMaxx and Marshalls preview and at such an affordable price, I definitely will. You can check out more pics from the preview in our Facebook album. I bet you’ll agree that the flip-flop coasters are uber cute!
