Last week I attended Fashion’s Night Out at the Avenue’s NYC location on 3rd avenue. I think a lot of plus size girls dismiss the avenue because it often appears to cater to an older demographic. I used to do the same thing, but over the years I’ve fallen in love with the Avenue for a few very specific reasons.
1.) Avenue sells Cloudwalkers, the most comfortable line of shoes for large/wide sizes.
2.) Avenue has well made tights that go up to a size “EE”
3.) Avenue always has a reasonably priced line of shape wear. (I just bought high waist, spanx-like shapers for under $25)
4.) Avenue has fresh, fun accessories. I met their accessories manager, Kristina and she’s adorable which explains why the accessories at Avenue are always on trend.
5.) Every season they have at least one stand out piece. Two years ago it was genuine leather bomber jackets, last year it was the sequined skirt, this year its a fabulous animal print dress!
These are some of the items that I picked up while shopping there last weekend. They have a huge discount sale going on in stores and online. I got $150 worth of merchandise for $100. You can also save $20 on purchases over $75 and $30 on purchases over $100. Use code “AV111244″ online at checkout.
