I cannot wait to share this sponsored post with you guys! When The Avenue East Cobb asked me to share about my day of shopping, I was so excited because I knew that you would love it!
Spring is right around the corner, and there is no better way to welcome a new season than with a refreshed wardrobe! I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve been ready to buy spring clothes since January! 😂
Well, it’s finally time to do some spring shopping, and do I have the perfect place for you! Located just 15 miles northwest of Atlanta at 4475 Roswell Rd in Marietta, The Avenue East Cobb offers a dynamic mix of premier national retailers, select local merchants and specialty restaurants reflective of local demand and fashion trends. The shopping destination features an open-air, pedestrian friendly setting with a unique mix of retailers and restaurants that encourage guests to stroll, relax and stay awhile. Visitors can enjoy fountains, unique shops, patio dining and storefront parking.
If you’re gearing up for your next shopping day (#TreatYoSelf), consider spending the day at Avenue East Cobb. I made some time for some retail therapy and I’ve got the deets on a few shops to stop by. From kitchen wares to facials to fashion trends, here’s a guide to make a day of shopping at The Avenue East Cobb.
A HAPPY HOME
Williams-Sonoma is a household name by now, and for good reason. Stop here if your kitchen needs a refresh—you can get everything from high-quality pots, pans, and knives to appliances, specialty foods, cookbooks, and hand-made furnishings. Plus their table settings are the stuff of legend. I must admit I got a little Easter envy at their fabulous tablescapes for bunny day. 🙂
Love to cook or just starting out? Home cooks of all skill levels are welcome at Olea Oliva! Meaning “The Olive Tree,” Olea Oliva! has all kinds of extra virgin olive oils, balsamic vinegars, spice blends, and recipe ideas for you to peruse. The best part? You can taste anything and everything before you buy it! Sign. Me. Up!!!
I love Talbots because it’s so classic and timeless. I feel like anything I buy here can be worn for seasons to come! While I was at The Avenue East Cobb Talbots, I styled a few pieces from their current collection to give y’all some outfit ideas. Of course, I copped a gorgeous floral dress for spring too!
WH/BM always makes me feel like a lady when I shop there. Even though black and white hues dominate the store, they do carry pops of color to round out your look. They also have a fabulous accessories section, and I couldn’t help but snag a few baubles for myself!
GRAB A BITE
Seasonal, chef-driven, and sustainable. That’s what you get at Drift House, and that’s why I love it! They are actually the first restaurant in Georgia to be an official partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, so you can eat here with a clear conscience. Plus, it’s super delicious. We sampled the Deviled Eggs, Grouper Ceviche, and Strawberry Wine, and everything was delicious. The ambiance was really nice, and since we didn’t get to eat much, we will certainly be back to try more of the menu!
RELAX AND GET GLAMMED!
Grab all your go-to beauty products at Sephora—this makeup mega-land has more than 300 beauty brands to choose from, plus a Beauty Studio, where you can get access to free classes, makeovers, and advice from in-house beauty gurus. Of course you know I can’t resist the chance to play in makeup, get all glammed up, AND catch a few candids for IG. Say cheese!
If botanically-based skin care, hair care, bath, body and lifestyle products are your vibe, Origins is the shop for you! I love that this brand only uses recycled and recyclable packaging materials and they’re also cruelty-free. And the price isn’t so bad either! When we visited, I received a hand massage, and the hubby got a mini-facial and a hand massage (lucky him, right?!).
Self-care should not be ignored, and making sure your body feels and looks great should not be skimped on! I’m a big believer in investing in your health/body, and if you’ve never had a Med Spa experience, you can’t go wrong with CAS. They are a Triple Diamond Level Practice, which means their staff is top-performing, which means all of your treatments will be the best of the best.
I stopped by CAS Med Spa to rejuvenate after a long day exploring the Avenues. I was told about the Red Carpet Facial—the one celebs get right before the red carpet—so, of course, I couldn’t resist! Owner and Founder Cassie was super nice and personable, and the entire staff was very knowledgeable and friendly, making the experience that much more enjoyable. CAS provides all kinds of services—from Botox to CoolSculpting and more. Here are all their services. After the Red Carpet facial, I was hooked on the experience and just had to schedule another visit. Stay tuned for more on my CAS Med Spa adventures.
Whether a day out with the girls or just a solo shopping trip, a day of shopping at The Avenue East Cobb will not disappoint! They’ve got you covered from head-to-hip and everything in between. So stop by, enjoy the fresh air, and stroll East Cobb’s best kept secret. Hey I can’t wait to make another trip down The Avenue… Well, there are a few more shops that I’ve got my eyes (and wallet) on. Just don’t tell my hubby….it’ll be our little secret. 😉
