While cleaning out my purse the other day, I "found" an LLBean gift card that I received from my husband for Christmas in 2011! Bonanza! However, I did spend about half of it last year but was so tickled that I had a few more $$ to use up that when my daughter had some training in Columbia, MD today I hitched a ride and had her drop me off at the mall there.
I had my sights on a few new turtlenecks and a thick wool sweater to chase away the cold January days ahead. There's nothing that beats their carefully crafted knitted wool sweaters, as I have purchased several through the years and have never been disappointed.
Now I am disappointed to learn that the Columbia Mall LLBean location will be no longer as of sometime in May (verified by store personnel). They could not renew their lease and the mall decided to add more restaurants in that space.
Photo is my sweater with matching turtleneck.
BSoleille! The bright side of a cold winter day combating it with a thick wool sweater and many layers!
