Early Experiences at Marshalls and TJ Maxx in Lexington, KY

Sigh. I have not been pleased with Marshalls and T.J. Maxx stores in Lexington. There are only two Marshalls and one T.J. Maxx in the entire city. And, no disrespect to the college sports fans over here, but does half of the already limited Marshalls stores really have to be packed with a certain team’s paraphernalia?

Anyway, by some stroke of luck, a shipment of several Calvin Klein sweaters dresses trickled into the local stores and at a sale price of $49.99. I was drawn to this long sleeve pointelle charcoal sweater dress. It has cool features like a cowl neck, removable self belt, and ribbed detailing at the cuffs, hem and neck. The dress is worn with metallic pointy toe leather boots.

Here are a couple other Calvin Klein sweater dresses (the black one is the same style I am wearing) I saw in Marshalls at the same low price.

    Not yet, but seeing those dresses, I think it’s high time for me to get back over to TJMaxx! I love tjm and Marshall’s too.

    I want a Calvin Klein sweater dress. I am going to go and see if I can find one. And, I LOVE the length of your boot. It looks fab!

    🙁 no chance to get one.

    But I’m loving it on you.

    And thank you for your support about the pants, I really feel insecure…

    I have seen them in a few of my local Marshalls. I like how you chose the grey I think many times grey is a great alternative to black.

    Your grey sweater dress is gorgeous – I love the cowl neck!

    Also, I’m currently running a contest on my blog to win a $25 gift certificate from a lovely online boutique. Hope you’ll check it out!

    Have a great day tomorrow dear:)

    They are here in Texas at the Marshalls. I picked up one. They also have this bold blue color like the 1st one you have pictured.

    I have seen alot of Calvin Klein dresses in Ross for Less for around the same price. I like them. I try to stay under $50 for my dresses though.

    I love this dress on you! I was in Marshall’s last week and saw nada.

  12. September 19, 2008 / 11:13 pm

    that’s a great basic piece to have. i could also use that long sleeved black one.

    I haven’t seen any Calvin Klein ones, but have seen dresses that are very similar at TJ in Mass. I really adore these dresses.

    And I agree with Kira, they look fabulous with long boots.

    Great find! Very elegant 🙂
    Works so well with the knee high boots

    Okay I love the dress. I have been lurking for awhile but I am also in Lexington and I need to know which Marshall’s you got the dress at. You will probably hear from me more now that we are in the same locale!! I got a great sleeveless gray sweater dress at Old Navy @ Fayette Mall a couple of weeks ago and when I was in there yesterday – it is now on clearance. You shoudl check them out.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Angie: How exciting. We have to share Lexington shopping tips. The Marshalls out at Hamburg had many of those CK sweater dresses. So, Check them out. And, I will have to check out those dresses at ON. Thanks for stopping by!!

    I have seen the brown one with the short sleeves in Macy’s. I am looking for a long sleeved sweater dress in a color besides gray or black. I found a cute one by Max Studio last year. I hope to find one in a plum or burgundy shade.

  18. September 22, 2008 / 4:05 pm

    Nikki: I got a really nice plum Max Studio sweater dress in T.J Maxx last year. So, you may have luck! I would have considered another CK dress if it was available in other colors too.

    I second the ‘I *heart* the Calvin Klein sweater dress’ – it’s perfect for this Fall and Winter.

    Thanks for sharing. I love your ideas.
