Marshalls Spring Style: Extra’s Maria Menounos Shops Recessionista
Who doesn’t love a good deal? Turns out even Hollywood celebrities love Marshalls. That’s why Extra host Maria Menounos has been stocking up of deals and women’s apparel at the discount chain. I’ve posted her “Fabulous Finds” aka shopping deals on my Facebook page so you can see all the cute things she found and maybe look for them at your local Marshall’s store. Her finds include everything from a basket for her dog to gorgeous heals and cute tops for spring. Check out Maria’s Recessionista fabulous finds video featuring lace, floral and a great peplum top. To celebrate Spring, Marshalls asked me to shop and show off my fab finds, plus offer you all a giveaway. Here’s what I found.
Instead of buying multiple items at Marshalls, I splurged for a good designer handbag from an top quality Italian handbag company. Eat your hearts out darlings. This 100% genuine leather bag is gorgeous and I got it for much less than the usual retail price of a good Italian bag. The shape of the bag is perfect for carrying under you arm, or as a handbag. This handbag makes everyday that I carry it fabulous, because I feel like a million, but I didn’t spend a million. After all, this is The Recessionista we’re all about finding the best for less. There’s no need to spend hundreds or even thousands on a luxury bag, when you can get a luxury quality bag for much less at Marshalls. Marshalls buyer search planet wide to find the best merchandise and buy direct from designers. More than 10,000 new items arrive at every store each week, which means smart shoppers are always right behind them. These fabulous finds are up to 60% off department store prices, every day. So what is Marshalls’ secret? Brilliant buyers. Unlike department store buyers who only shop once each season, these professional shoppers travel the world every single week. (Marshalls, please call me, I am available to travel and go shopping! ) That means new fabulous finds arrive at Marshalls stores on a regular basis, so you have to check in for new things constantly to see all the deals. The stock is always being refreshed.
So now that you’ve seen how I’ve been shopping savvy, it’s time for you to share your fabulous finds too. And, there’s something in it for you. I am giving away 5 gift cards of $25.00 each for 5 lucky readers who share their favorite Marshall’s finds with me via Twitter or Instagram @Recessionista. Contest ends March 31st at Midnight EST.
