Good Morning, McKinney!
I hope everyone had an excellent weekend. Mine consisted of football games, a magazine launch party, and of course, the 1-year anniversary at Stein Mart McKinney! Did any of you attend?
For those of you who haven’t before shopped at Stein Mart, it is a large department store full of brand-name merchandise at very competitive prices. Last year, the Stein Mart in McKinney moved from their original location on Eldorado Parkway to a brand new, lighter and brighter store located at HWY 380 and Hardin Boulevard in North McKinney. Friends, I attended their anniversary party, and can I tell you how excited I am about All.The.Finds? So much greatness for spring and summer!
The celebrations began with The Mayor and Maylee performing two songs while modeling their favorite Stein Mart fashions. Doesn’t McKinney’s First Lady have the coolest sense of style?
After the performance, I went to work finding some spring and summer styles, which was no easy feat because literally everything was darling. I found 3 categories of items, however, I decided were especially special.
Spring and Summer Dresses
A short dress printed with lemons, two bright maxis, with and without sleeves, and even a high-to-low striped dress all caught my eye. These will be fun for evenings on the patio, by the pool, lunch and shopping with girlfriends around downtown McKinney, or even to take on a fun vacation to the beach. Friends, what are more perfect than colorful dresses to take on beach trips?
After a long and cold winter, everyone is ready to stow the heavy sweaters and wool pants, in favor of a new springtime wardrobe. However, spring doesn’t automatically mean heat…even in Texas! Be chicly prepared for cool spring mornings by stocking your wardrobe full of these darling pants found at Stein Mart. They have a huge selection of flour-sack waisted pants, joggers, embellished hems, striped, linen and printed pants. Fun pairs like these match easily with solid cotton t-shirts and denim jackets or blazers. Plus, it’s easy to purchase a few pairs with Stein Mart’s excellent prices.
I also want to note this incredible line of Needle + Cloth pants. Friends, these are under $20, are as soft as butter and come in a large variety of different colors and fits: lavender, soft pink, leopard print, skinny, ankle length…I absolutely love these! This is just one example of their everyday low prices.
Whatever your plans are for the upcoming Easter holiday, you are sure to find several outfit options at Stein Mart. A lovely white suit layered over a classic navy polka-dot shell; a white linen traveler dress with wooden buttons and exposed shoulders; or a sheer floral top with flour-sack wasted pants will all take you gracefully and spring-like to whatever Easter morning has planned for you. Rachel Roy, June & Hudson, Free People, Michael Kors, Nine West, Kenneth Cole and Jessica Simpson are just a few of my favorite brands found at Stein Mart…with so many more!
I then headed to the shoe department and found several staples needed for a very fashionable spring and summer for your feet.
Dressy Snakeskin sandals
Bright Strappy Heels
Casual Poolside Sandals
All Day Every Day Sandals
Stein Mart’s shoe department is so fun to browse, and friends, I have it on good authority the McKinney store is about to receive LOTS of contemporary styles and designer brands never before stocked at this store! Get excited!
Lastly, I headed for the home department and found so many things I’m totally in love with that are sure to refresh my home for the upcoming warmer seasons. Throw pillows to brighten up our outdoor living spaces, large drink dispensers to showcase hydrating fruit infusions—y’all I drink water infusions all summer long—assorted wreaths to decorate the front door, and even colorful bedding to update the guest room. Anyone else love shopping for home décor at great prices?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Stein Mart has so much merchandise to see that is such fun to browse. Make your way over to Stein Mart McKinney this week and get a start on some spring and summer shopping!
