Must Have Summer Items from T.J. Maxx and Marshalls!

For many, Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start to summer meaning family vacations, beach days, home entertaining, and overdosing on leisure time. Of course for us in South Florida our summer’s are mostly year ’round. Wherever you are, summer is a time to celebrate with friends and loved ones so why not stock up on essentials to help you have fun!

T.J. Maxx and Marshalls style expert Laura McDowell has provided a list of tips on how to kick start your summer in style this Memorial Day Weekend.

  • The Grill Master: Memorial Day commences outdoor entertaining and the time to ignite cookout creativity. Update your grill set with stainless steel, professional-quality cookware such as non-slip grip tongs, a slotted spatula and sliding skewers for kebobs. Whether you’re dining al fresco or indoors, patriotic decorative trays and woven placements will bring classic American style to your table. Set up a great seating area furnished with linen-covered embroidered pillows, an all-weather ottoman, and even a rope hammock for guests outdoors to relax and ease into a summer mindset.
  • Weekend Warrior: Summer is the season for vacations and staycations, so make sure you have durable, but of course fashionable, luggage for longer trips as well as designer leather or canvas weekender totes for quick getaways. Heading away for an adventurous trip outdoors this holiday weekend? From compact kayaks, lightweight tents, and insulated sleeping bags to mini grills and gourmet foods, T.J.Maxx and Marshalls have the quality merchandise you need, whether you’re off to a campsite or pitching a tent in the backyard.
  • Beach Babe: If you love the sun and the sand, invest in easy-to-transition beach to bar fashion. Freshen up your closet with designer one-piece swimsuits, swim shirts, breezy cover-ups, and bold accessories. Nautical is a huge trend this season, so slip on a white pleated maxi skirt over a bright red bathing suit and add a statement necklace with wedges and you’re ready for the evening. Bring along a stylish designer carryall to function as both your beach tote and evening bag.

  • Outdoor Entertainer: Whether you’re throwing a casual backyard BBQ or a fancy rooftop soiree, any get-together is an opportunity to show off your hosting skills and entertaining finds. Choose a color palette and decorate your space using pops of color through European ceramic serveware pieces, a candlelit display with baroque decorative lanterns, and bold crystal barware. Add a personalized touch with on-trend chalkboard mason jars to serve as a cocktail glass and place setting. 
Hope you’re ready for the summer like I am! Happy Shopping
