If you know me, you know I cannot pass up a good deal. I’m a bargain hunter through and through. Through and through. Growing up, I was always shopping clearance racks with my mom, and we had a blast. I swear there’s just something about scoring the perfect piece at a literal fraction of the price…coupled with the fact that it might be the only one of its kind left on the shelf, and that makes for a semi-exclusive deal that doesn’t break the bank. For all of you lovely ladies who have asked me where I like to shop…Marshall’s is top of list, usually amongst other off-price retailers. So when I had the opportunity to officially work with Marshall’s, it couldn’t have been a bigger no brainer! This store is my JAM.
I love the treasure hunt of off-price shopping. What the heck is “off-price shopping”? Off-price retailers include the likes of TJMaxx, Burlington, Ross, and Marshalls (see this 18 for $372.81 haul from Burlington and this 19 for $210.81 haul from Ross). I had the opportunity to work corporate marketing at one of the above previously, so let me dispel a rumor in a hot sec: off-price retailers do not just get the “rejects” from more expensive stores. A common misconception is that anything that isn’t selling or is defected heads straight to off-price retail doors. That’s just not true. Off-price retailers have buyers – huge teams of buyers, actually – that head to Fashion Ave in NYC alongside every other buyer and handpick what merchandise is going to be in which stores.
I hit up Marshalls recently to stock up for fall, and naturally, I ended up walking out with all the stuff. All the stuff. I got the most random assortment of goodies, and that’s probably because there were just so. many. goodies. Marshall’s is one of my favorite places for more “designer” finds (spoiler alert: some stores have got Kate Spade!) and high quality stuff. They’re my go-to for workout clothes and activewear, because the department is just *baller*, and I can never pass up their handbag section. Or the fragrance section. Or the shoes. Ya catch my drift?
Marshalls just has high quality brand name and designer fashions – and amazing home décor, too! – at awesome possum prices. Whether you’re heading back-to-school or just need a fall fashion update, the styles and pricetags are all on par.
I spent $178.30 and got 15 things, ranging from sweaters to a heating pad and my favorite perfume.
I am absolutely ready for cooler weather now…although that coral floral frock will get me through until then. I’m way over department store prices; Marshalls keeps it real for the college ladies on budgets (let’s be real – for any lady on a budget, or just ladies who love smart shopping!). The other perk of shopping Marshalls? Thousands of new items come in each week, meaning your inner shopaholic can come out and treat yo’self with a little (or a lotta) something from every paycheck. #score
