Lilly-itis

I think I have Lilly-itis! If I even walk into a Marshalls these days, I can smell a Lilly in the middle of a random rack. This is a new-found disease because until last year, I had no idea that one shopped for anything other than shoes at these stores. I knew there were clothes but I never attempted really to muster up the patience to rummage through them. Lately though, no rummaging needed. I can just feel where the "needed" item is living. It's a sickness and talent all in one!



Last week I found these pajama pants. They had a matching robe but it was a short summer robe and I really only wear a robe in the winter so I resisted the purchase. I LOVE my pj capri pants though- super soft and comfy!



Then after I attempted to fix my sticky fingers situation at Target, I walked into Marshalls. For no particular reason. I don't need a thing right now as I have been shopping like a crazy woman. But like the true pink and green follower that I am, I made a b-line for this skirt tucked amidst a sea of ugliness. I didn't try it on as it was the only one there and I was in no mood to deal with the crazy dressing room attendants. It's a size smaller than I wear right now (and a size larger than I want to be wearing if you really want to know!) but I took a chance. It fits!! If I lose a few lbs it will fit better but I could totally wear it now. I won't though because it's wool and we are finally entering summer around these parts kids. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. And while I can wait for the weather to wear it, I will be excited when the time does come because it is so pretty.





And I found this random bit of fabric left on a random bolt at Joann's. It's called Raspberry Madras. I could eat it up- so delish. No idea what it will become but it was on sale (though that was one of those fun surprises that I found out after I went to purchase it- love that!) and all they had left.



So there you go. Some happy, unexpected finds! Have a wonderful Holiday weekend everyone!!

Great skirt!

I can't wait to check out TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I've already decided I will go my first day back even if I pass out from extreme jetlag ;)

Popped into Tjmaxx yesterday for just a few minutes and left $160 lighter in the wallet. I got so lucky. I scored a lilly skirt, lilly embroidered shorts, set of lilly pjs and lilly placemats for $20. I came home and looked up the placemats to see if i could get more and realized they retail for $78. I scored big time!!!

Such an exciting few minutes and now I am blogging in my new pjs!!!

I have Lilly-itis, too! My best this month.....while snagging some cute J.Crew and Banana Republic clothes at a garage sale, the owner saw I had on Lilly and actually went inside and brought me out a Lilly skirt. For $2.00! Score! I love your new stuff.

Ok, i have to ask - which marshalls is this? The chesterfield one never has Lilly...

Cloggsy said...

OOps, take my comment back - I so thought I was blogging on a Richmond blog. I clicked off of them on bloglines and came onto yours next. Whoops - embarassing. Anywho, I'm jealous of your lilly finds!

Oh Miss PPC, you are a shopping Goddess!
What wonderful discoveries you have made! We're with you on the LOVE LOVE LOVE for the skirt, along with the pj's... how cute are they? We must talk about the raspberry madras. Guess who else has a remnant of said fabric? Yes! We do, and like you, haven't a clue yet as to what we'll be doing with it, but a Princess Pillow is lookin' likely at this point!

I am the same way at TJ Maxx and Marshall's. In fact people have commented on how I just know where to go on the rack; thank goodness for Lilly radar!

I love your skirt too! I have the same fabric in a dress and adore it!

I think we are long-lost twins! I, too, had no idea that Marshall's sold anything but shoes until last year. The racks were always messy and I had no patience for them. Then, I found my first Lilly dress.

I am now addicted!

Also, TJMaxx sells a lot of Lilly, too!
