It can be expensive freshening your wardrobe for spring, but it does not have to be.
While fall and winter fashions get moved further and further back into the corners of stores, spring fashions spring up like tulips in storefronts and soon take over floor space by the end of February. It can be very tempting to splurge and pay full retail on new spring fashions. The pastel colors, lighter silhouettes and all-around freshness are real mood enhancers especially for the last bleak weeks of this winter in the Akron/Canton area.
It is okay to splurge on a couple key staples if absolutely needed by April.
For example a:
- Pair of rain-boots
- Tote bag
- Hooded rain slicker and/or a hat
For everything else save save save.
The best spring wardrobe refreshers found so far in the Akron/Canton area are surprisingly at Marcs in Belden Village. Marcs' closeout department is bursting with spring wardrobe refreshers, and most items are priced $4 and below! Finding markdowns like these in retail stores is very rare (especially in your size and the color and/or fabric you prefer). Retail stores usually only mark down items to 80% when they out-of-season and not-so-desirable, so the deals on spring fashions at Marcs are astounding.
The best finds are:
- Target brand, cotton, khaki, tweed and lace pencil skirts priced at an astounding 99 cents to $1.99.
- Metallic, holograph and like-leather skinny belts for 50 cents each
- Thin solid cardigans
- Printed boyfriend cardigans for $2.99
- Suede pumps
- Opaque tights for $1.99
- Cotton tank-tops
- Lightweight cotton bathrobes and pajama pants
Most of the fashions are good quality Target brands such as Xhileration, Mossimo, and Merona, and they come in a wide variety and quantity of sizes. They even have Liz Lange Maternity wear items, but Marcs closeout deals like these go fast, so stop in ASAP.
