I did something unprecedented today. I took a personal day from work! In the 4 years I have been at my job, I have hardly EVER taken days off unless I was going on vacation, going to a Dave concert or going out of town in general. I never take days off to get stuff done, and boy did it feel good to do just that! I had sooooo much shopping and cleaning to do because my future Mother-in-Law (from San Diego... I have another one in Colorado.. I'm lucky, I get two!) is coming to Kentucky for the first time tomorrow until next Tuesday, then we are having all of our friends and my family over for my fiancee's Graduation party on Saturday and then of course Mother's Day is on Sunday so I have a LOT of stuff to get ready for. Well, during my shopping today, I found some cute stuff that I had to share! I honestly thought that finding Lilly or Vineyard Vines at TJ Maxx/ Marshall's was just an urban legend... but lo and behold I witnessed it with my own 2 eyes! Here are some of the bargains I got today:
I got the Lilly polo shirt for my Mom for only $29.99 at Marshall's! I was chit-chatting with another lady in line there and she said she had just bought the same shirt in a different color at TJ Maxx, but I didn't have a chance to go over there. The shorts are actually bermuda shorts that I got at Target (Merona brand) for $12.99!! They have the cutest seersucker belt. They have a navy pair with a navy & green whale belt! I also picked up the pink & green towel for $10 and the madras tie for my fiancee for $9.99. Honestly, I have always been kind of a snob about discount stores like TJ/Marshalls, because I don't have enough patience to look through all that stuff. But today I stand corrected. I will definitely be back!
Oh and P.S... a quick shout out to Erica, Elizabeth or anyone else who needs any nautical-type stuff, I was in Kohl's today and they have a really really cute nautical line of home stuff (dishes, trays, menu boards, etc) that you might want to check out!
