Giveaway: Because It’s Better to Be a Maxxinista

23 Sep

Like This!

Anyone who really knows me is well aware of the fact that I am always looking for a good deal.

Of course, I splurge on occassion, but my forté is to find great things at unbelievable prices. If it’s on sale and I like it, I’m getting it.

And, what better place to find great deals than your local TJ Maxx store? Today I had the opportunity to attend the Behind the Seams event at TJ Maxx in Miami Beach with stylist and lifestyle expert Alison Deyette.

Alison Deyette shows one of my favorite items in the store. Calvin Klein dress retail $148, is only $59.99 at TJ Maxx

“At TJ Maxx, it’s all about the thrill of the hunt,” said Alison as she went on to demystify the merchandise available at the stores. If you think you will only find past season items at TJ Maxx stores and that it is better to go straight to a department store for in-season styles, well…you’re wrong.

At TJ Maxx you will find the same in-season merchandise that you’ll find at a department store for up to 60% off. Totally worth it in my view. Especially when you can find top quality brands such as Cynthia Rowley, Nannette Lepore and BCBG at your favorite TJ Maxx location.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the food items in their gourmet food section are guaranteed fresh and just the same quality as any specialty/gourmet store. So next time you’re at TJ Maxx, go ahead and grab that usually overpriced Herbes the Provence spice jar you’ve been dying for.

Alison’s tip for shopping at TJ Maxx:  Get to know your local TJ Maxx. Don’t be afraid to ask the manager for shipment arrival days and make sure you go to the store on these days. Then grab your shopping cart and start filling it up, you can always edit your selection before checkout!

I had such a great time hanging out at TJ Maxx today and going through their newly arrived merchandise. Therefore, I want to share the love with you my dear readers and give you the opportunity to win a $100 TJ Maxx gift card (also valid at Marshalls)!

    Though I frequently love the workout clothes on sale there, the best find I ever got was a gorgeous flowered dress for a wedding I was attending. The rest of my buddies dropped at least fifty on their dresses, and I came out only spending 12.99 (and looking better than all of them!)

    Years ago I got a great deal on a beautiful purse at Marshalls. I gave it to a friend for Christmas.

    One of my favorite finds (there are quite a few) was a pair of little black ankle boots. I wear them all the time. I can’t remember how much I paid for them but I’m sure it wasn’t as much as I would have had to somewhere else.

    Hey! My favorite Marshalls/TJ Maxx buy has been a beige covered bench for my bedroom, its also contains storage space for all my photography and art supplies.. it fit perfectly under my window sill and went along perfectly with the decor of my room. I’ll try posting a tweet with a photo of it when i get home.. The bench cost me approx. $90! It was a great steal!

    I’ve had so many great finds it’d be hard to pick one favorite… A recent one was a Calphalon pan for under $40 that we use every day, but many’s the time I’ve found a cart full of clothing for under $100 total.
