I did great at Marshalls today. I got a brown coach bag that was just marked down for $29.00, and five pairs of shoes for $7.00 each - Cole Haan, Etienne Aigner, BCBG, Anne Klein and Aerosoles. I was pleased! I'm going to another Marshalls tomorrow to check it out!
Wow I just went to my Marshall's in Laguna Hills, CA and it was only so-so. I had to dig to find the great deals, like $20 for a BCBG dress retailing for $240, or $3, $5 and $7 shirts. I will have to find another Marshall's to get some bags, cuz the selection of bags was all the usual no-name, cheaper quality ones.
Just went to my local TJ Maxx today (same franchise) and did pretty well. They just got in a large Bloomies shipment and so had a bunch of designer merch. I think the store has definitely shifted to begin carrying more high-end merchandise b/c I am there weekly and this is the first time I've seen this sort of selection. I saw Magashinio, Burberry, Boss, MK, Marc Jacobs, Kay Unger, DKNY, and well of course now I can't remember what else. Of course the prices are still kinda high but I did manage to score a bad *** boss bodysuit, plus a $450 theory dress for $20. Yay me!
From what it sounds like, I think these changes are across the board (all TJs and Marshalls). I'll hit Marshalls tomorrow and let you guys know. Anything for research :)
mashalls in boston (downtown crossing) has some amazing deals if any of you are from there. a couple of weeks i got some sfam jeans for $49 (had to return them later, they were too big!) and saw a bunch of ralph lauren, juicy, vince, michael kors, etc. it's worth looking!! i saw a pair of via spiga black suede booties for $49 that i passed up but hopefully i can find something similar in my next trip. dumb, dumb, dumb.
Thanks for starting this post! I went just last weekend and there was a lot of Ed Hardy shirts but my score was a BCBG sweater dress that retailed at $340 and was marked to $39.95! Also they had great deals department store mosturizers
I find that the Marshall's next to my house (West LA) has a good amount of high end merchandise, but it goes so fast. I went last week though, and found a pair of Antik jeans for 40 bucks. Didn't have to dig. They had a bunch of them on display in the junior's section and I guess didn't know what they were, since the original price they had on the tag was 80 bucks or so. Their loss I guess.
You do get to see some higher end bags once in a while. I think it's best to go regularly to see what comes in (if you have the patience)
TJX/Marshall's have Runway departments in select stores and they carry the most wonderful designers for pennies on the dollar. Last month in Irving, TX I picked up a LaRok mini (reg $277) for $34. They had Missoni, Pucci, PaperDenim too!
