If you are looking for a unique holiday gift during your last-minute shopping, Valerie Bertinelli has launched a namesake, boutique line of apparel and home accessories.
The Valerie Bertinelli line of pajamas, sweaters, candles, picture frames and more is in limited release, but you may be able to find some items at your local TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods.
"I got a long blue sweater with a ruffled front at Marshalls - it looks great with my jeans - and I've had so many compliments on it," said Kathy Slusher, a fan from upstate New York. "My friend liked it so much, I wanted to get her one for Christmas, but I haven't been able to find it since then."
Because the items sell so quickly, Valerie recommends speaking to the store manager at your local TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Home Goods to find out when their delivery date is and to see if the store can get more items from the line.
"I've tried to select things that I really like, things that I would wear and use," Valerie said. "There aren't a whole lot of items, but there is some really cute stuff!"
The line is growing and new items are coming out every month.
Some of that "cute stuff" has been on display on TVLand's hit omedy, Hot in Cleveland, where Valerie's character Melanie has worn pajamas from Valerie's line.
"I love all my PJ's and Tom thinks they're sexy as well - they have little spaghetti straps, and they are so comfortable," Valerie said. "My line also has pajamas with short-shorts, but I think those are more appropriate for daughter than mothers. I gave some to my step-daughters Angela and Andie."
Valerie so believes in her brand that many of the items adorn her home. One of the bedspreads from Valerie's line is on Angela's bed. Valerie's husband Tom has marveled at the craftsmanship of the quilt as well as the quality of the materials - on top of the fact that it's really comfortable and cozy. Valerie keeps all of her jewelry in the jewelry box from her line. Though she's never been a fan of vanilla, she loves her namesake vanilla-scented candles because they have such a true scent and not one that smells cloying or artificial.
Another fan, Lisa Johnson of Arizona, found an adorable, long-sleeved velvet top in chocolate brown at TJ Maxx.
"I didn't know Valerie had a fashion line, and I was surprised to find it at TJ Maxx," Johnson explained. "It's a really cute top. I just love it."
As a wife and mom who clips coupons and loves to shop for bargains, hearing from fans who've found her label in their communities brings a smile to Valerie's face.
"I love to see my stuff at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods because I believe in their philosophy," Valerie said. "It means more people have access to these boutique finds, and they can get them at GREAT prices!"
