J.Jill at Avalon (Plus Giveaway!)


Last week I had the privilege to check out the J.Jill store and view their November collection at the new Avalon shopping center just outside of Atlanta. And y'all let me you--this place is gorgeous. But let me back up a bit--have you heard of J.Jill? They're a clothing store for all women that's not exclusive to Atlanta: J.Jill is for all women. They have clothing, accessories, and footwear, and view fashion with a relaxed approach to style.








The design concept of this new J.Jill store is simple: to uncomplicate the lives of women by delighting their sense of personal style, inspiring confidence, and thoughtfully guiding their shopping experience.

I absolutely love that. 

I'm crazy busy and leave shopping for clothes at the bottom of my to-do list, because it's something I don't enjoy doing, believe it or not. I know a lot of you feel that way too. But my experience at shopping at J.Jill has changed that.  It was so easy, with a welcoming, engaging staff. I wasn't stressed, I didn't feel pressured...and it felt so personalized.

I love how to store is easily laid out--the mannequins have the styles on and the table with those items is right in front of you--no searching around. Again, the staff is super helpful, and the dressing room features those basic items that you need to style on with the pieces you choose (think basics, like button up white shirt, black skirt, tights, etc).

I also love how each store works with a different charity. To celebrate the opening, J.Jill will be making donations to their Alpharetta-based Compassion Fund Partner: Atlanta Center for Self-Sufficiency. When I visited the store, I got to learn more about this and think it's a wonderful, helpful idea, just like the J.Jill philosophy. Programs like these focus on skills, education, and transitional means to help disadvantaged and homeless women to become self-sufficient.


But let's go back to the clothes--J.Jill features styles that are comfortable and that are made for real life. like this cozy and stylish sweater and tights. It's not often that I can find clothes that work for my day job as a nanny--where I run after two little girls (ages 5 and 8 months) for around 12 hours a day. And J.Jill has clothes that can carry me through blogging events I might have at night, or for meeting up with friends. There is truly something for all women, including petites, tall, and women's sizes (available online).

Check out J.Jill on InstagramTwitterFacebook, and Pinterest.

  19. A girl could always use more cozy sweaters! They are the perfect layering piece or work great on their own. I've personally never heard of this place. But we are vacationing in Atlanta next summer and it's definitely made the list of places to visit.

    Have a fabulous weekend Elle! (:

  30. I'm not familiar with the store, but it sounds great! I love what they stand for- comfort and style! Despite popular belief, it IS possible to have both.

    Have a great weekend, Elle!

  35. I know everyone's crazy about cozy sweaters, but a J Jill item that I'd like to try is the petite short knit tank dress. Where I live is warm year-round, so this would be a great dress for work and play. :)

  36. hmm. I've heard of J Jill but have never actually checked them out. Thanks for the inspiration to finally do so!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You know, I've never actually heard much about J.Jill. I'd seen people blog about their clothes but never actually read about the experience there or the style/type of women their clothing caters to. Your post made me more interested in J.Jill than I had ever been. In all seriousness I'll be heading over to their website as soon as I'm done writing this. As we chatted about earlier on my blog; the shopping experience (not being pressured) is something I look for. I hope there is a J.Jill around me (I feel like I've seen it but never really known what to expect so I pushed it to the back of my memory bank!? TISK TISK) and I would be over the moon to win the gift card, haha! Who wouldn't!? Thanks for introducing me to a new place to shop! Can't wait!!

    Much Love,

  50. I used to think that Essie polishes were outrageously expensive for drugstore non-gel polish. Then I bought one... wow! The color is much richer, and it needs fewer coats to get the job done. After I've used up what I have, which could take years, I may never buy another brand again.

  51. I've never been to a J.Jill store, but I'm a total clothes horse and am always open to trying new brands! I love sweaters, so that's probably what I would try from there! I went to Avalon once - definitely need to go again and check out the store! :)
