TjMaxx Spring Preview (and the score I found later)

Last Thursday I got up bright and early and headed into Boston to meet up with Punky. We were both invited to the TjMaxx/Marshalls Spring Preview at the Ames Hotel. A big fan of TjMaxx myself, I was very excited to see what they had in store for Spring, even though the weather is still brisk and snow occasionally falls, I'm in the mood for bright florals and pretty spring dresses! Each theme was displayed beautifully, and Punky and I had a great time sifting through the racks and finding our favorite pieces:

There was so much I would have bought right there and then, I especially loved the floral and nautical racks.

So, Chris and I headed North for this past weekend, and of course I couldn't resist stopping at the TjMaxx near my mom's, they always have the greatest stuff! Chris was perusing the sunglasses when he found, not one, but two pairs of Ray Ban Polarized Wayfarers for $59! He wears Wayfarer frames as his glasses, and I've always wanted a pair, and there they were! Even better, I had a couple of gift cards that needed using. I've never had a fancy pair of sunnies before, it's safe to say I'm excited about it.

Note: these glasses were partially bought with a giftcard provided by TjMaxx

P.S. I have a post up on the Delightful Dozen blog today!

Hi, I love this post about Tj Maxx one of my favorite places to frequent. It is dangerously close, about 2 miles from my front door. You look great in them!!! I bought mine last year and bought my husband 2 pairs. Plus his middle name is Ray so I call him Robbie Ray Ban...corny I know. Have a great week. dawn xo

I love the Wayfarers on you. I found some great knockoffs at Rite Aid, but nothing beats the real thing.

Oh,and thanks for the reminder that TJMaxx exists! I need to pay a little visit soon.

Laura said...

julie- i'm sure this is a long shot since this is a few weeks old, but which location is the tj maxx you scored those at? i live around boston too, and i'm always looking for a TJ's with really good stuff. (fyi, if you're ever in cambridge, the TJ Maxx at fresh pond has some pretty awesome designer stuff, although still out of my price range ;))

Orchid Grey said...

Laura,

Unfortunately, I got them way outside of boston at the Tj's in North Conway, NH. I've heard from a couple of other people that they've seen ray bans elsewhere though, happy hunting!
