The sunglasses at the UK TK Maxx stores are usually quite good....I've seen lots of Fendi, Oscar de la Renta, Blumarine, Givenchy, Missoni and even Chloe pairs!

^^ The other day when I was at a TJMaxx north of LA, all of the associates were oooohing and aaaahing over a Galliano jacket that had just come in with a price tag of $600.00... they had set it behind the front desk, something I'm sure the managers wouldn't appreciate... I wouldn't think...?

^ Could a customer have possibly had it on hold? If not, it seems like that would be a huge no-no.

Blumarine and Chloe, wow! The best I've seen at mine are Missoni (but they were not cute, IMO), Oliver Peoples and Miu Miu

You know, that's a possibility...

I've seen Missoni, too... and some other goodies...

The trick is to find the stores with the Runway collection. If you search for stores on their website, they label which ones carry the real designer stuff.

^ Most of the stores by me don't have the runway section but every so often I'll find runway items that have been returned from other stores and I get really excited. I really wish that more stores had a runway section!

A TK MAXX store just opened in GieŖen, Germany, which is where I normally shop. Of course there's no runway section but they have some very nice sunglasses, bags and dresses.
I love that you have to really look through everything to make sure that you don't miss something great. That makes shopping so much more exciting.
I already bought two cute dresses and two sunglasses (one is a beautiful pink by Just Cavalli ) and there will be more.
What I also like are the dressing rooms which are big enough, have nice mirrors and you can close the doors so that nobody can look in or open them from the outside.

What I like is that they've started carrying some makeup-mostly it's just Modelco, but the one I went to today had a LOT of Lancome, some Paula Dorf, and some Urban Decay. They had the Heavy Metal box from 2007 which has two full-size products...for a whopping $4.

I've never been to a T.J. Maxx and I've heard/read so many fab shopping stories! I am going to Cali in January so I will make sure to check it out.
