Like any other trend-obsessed compulsive shopper, I love finding a pair of designer shoes at a discounted price- but waiting for those shoes to go on sale is definitely not one of my favorite things.
I visited Marshalls to have stylist and TV correspondent Alison Deyette explain how this crazy off-price world works! Alison explained that buyers for department stores like Macys order a certain amount of an item from a manufacturer, and then buyers from Marshalls negotiate to buy any excess of that item from that manufacturer at a discounted price. Pretty much it all comes down to the important thing-which is that at an given time shoppers can find the exact same clothes in Marshalls that they would find in a department store BUT for a much lower price! Crazy right!?!
Alison also offered a few fall trend alerts, all of which can be found at Marshalls!
Sam Edelman “Juno” Wedge Sandals ($50) (Obsessed with studs!)
Which are currently being sold on HSN.com for $159!
[Ed. note: I for one am LOVING Liz’s Marshalls finds. I’m off to find a boyfriend blazer in suburban PA this weekend. I can hear the easy-listening Marshalls music now… think they’ll play Sade’s Paradise?]
