I am neither stylish or beautiful, but I thought those of you who are might like to know that TKMaxx had a big selection of boxed Missoni scarfs today. Some were made of fine wool, and others were more silky. Lots of different colour combos.

Ooh lovely, thanks AgentP will pop in tomorrow, perfect pressie for MIL.

Wow! love love love Missoni. Thank you.

mignonette Thu 08-Nov-12 16:47:48

What were they charging for them?

AgentProvocateur Thu 08-Nov-12 16:48:38

They were £39.99 I think, down from £85-£125.

faustina Thu 08-Nov-12 16:53:47

they have those online if anyone can't be arsed to go to the shop

mignonette Thu 08-Nov-12 20:47:50

My local store is going to call me when/if they get them. Bought lovely Calvin Klein scarf and another from Johnsons of Elgin plus twentyeighttwelve sweater and another cardigan of no particular pedigree. Very pleased smile

Mignorette I think you and I could be scarf buddies as I bought a Missoni scarf back in September from TK Maxx and a cashmere Johnsons scarf just last week.

Will be checking out my local Maxxs ASAP

One near me (Waterlooville) had All Saints jumpers, Merrel boots, Levi curve id jeans & all sorts of amazing goodies when I was in last there a few weeks ago.

I was skint though. sad

Itsgottabebags - Time for a name change to Itsgottabebagsandscarves?

Itsgottabebags Thu 08-Nov-12 21:43:07

mignonette good idea. Its got a ring to it!

Djembe Thu 08-Nov-12 21:45:32

Nooo sad why now, why when I am skint?! I have a blue one I adore that I got in the NAP sale for £40 last Christmas, and the pinkish one on there looks like one I bought mum for her birthday a few years ago in Harrods and paid over £100 for - in the days pre-kids when I had money!

Rindercella Thu 08-Nov-12 22:09:13

Damn you Style & Beauty. Another item ordered!

lighthousekeeping Thu 08-Nov-12 23:45:02

Is it worth buying online rather than going into the shop?

rococopops Fri 09-Nov-12 12:30:30

Thank you Mumsnet S&B, I've been after one of these for literally years smile

Itsgottabebags Fri 09-Nov-12 16:53:47

No ones in their packaging in my localish one. Going for a gander at another branch!

Thanks for the recommendation OP.

I got some Levi's curve skinnies in the Truro branch last week - very pleased, especially as they are a 34" leg :D

They'd had some in smaller sizes or different styles a while back, but I wanted a skinny pair. £25!

AgentProvocateur Wed 14-Nov-12 06:43:47

Glad to have been of service. smile

ChablisLover Wed 14-Nov-12 09:05:43

Aw, my lovely Granny is a serious Missoni fan. As it's massively expensive, she just appreciates it from afar. Not any more! Bought one for her Christmas stocking. I'm very grateful AgentP, thanks so much thanks

Birdies Wed 14-Nov-12 14:31:46

Thank you to the OP for making me discover TK Maxx! I always assumed it was like another Matalan but how wrong I was! I didn't buy a scarf but I did buy:

- a gorgeous Karen Millen watch for my mum for Christmas
- three lovely cardigans
- a gorgeous wool dress
- a craghoppers waterproof coat which is actually not frumpy

I'm skint, but happy!

My latest haul in-shop has been 2 wool coats-one a casual shorter grey one and a smarter Feraud plum military trench.Plus fitflop booties,an online cashmere tunic and Bearpaw sheepskin booties for under 30 pounds.Do i win the prize for the most conspicuous Tk Maxx expenditure?
