Today I’m excited to team up with Marshalls for one of my very favorite projects to date. Have you heard about Marshalls Pin Pals? Here’s the low-down: Last week, I got to secretly pick three of my most loyal followers on Pinterest, and go on a shopping trip to Marshalls to find personalized gifts for each of them based upon their amazing Pinterest boards. Lucky for me, my local Marshalls had just gotten a new shipment of drool-worthy fall bags, so I selected one for each of them based on images they pinned to their pinterest boards, and am shipping them out to the lucky winners this week! (…assuming I can’t convince Marshalls to just let me keep all of them. I’m currently brainstorming excuses. They were lost in a fire? Our apartment was robbed? Any ideas would be v. appreciated.)
I’ve been a Marshalls shopper for as long as I can remember, so I was super pumped for an excuse (as if I need one?) to hit up my local store. In addition to these gorgeous fall bags, I also scored some great items for our new apartment in New York which you’ll be seeing in the coming weeks and months as the move and home decor process progresses.
But honestly, for someone who does about 99% of her shopping online, Marshalls is one of the few stores that I actually get excited to visit in person. Typically, the thought of in-person shopping nowadays makes me want to stick a fork in my eye, but Marshalls is the exception. It’s such a refreshing shopping experience to walk into a place not knowing what will be in store, yet completely confident that I’ll uncover something incredible. For me, the appeal and excitement is actually quite similar to my experience on Pinterest. Regardless of whether you go into it with a pre-existing idea in mind, you always come away having discovered amazing ideas that surprise and inspire.
If you’ve followed this blog and my social channels for a long time, you know that Pinterest is one of my very favorite platforms. Over the years, I’ve constantly turned to Pinterest for styling inspiration, wedding planning ideas, great recipes, and (especially lately!) home decor tips for our new space in NYC. If you’re as Pinterest-obsessed as I am, be sure to follow Marshalls on Pinterest and if you repin your favorites from their Pin Pals Board, who knows, you could be the next person receiving a #MarshallsSurprise!
