If someone told me I’d be spending a morning chatting with one of the original Charlie’s Angels and eating a meal cooked by Oprah’s own former personal chef, I’d say they were lying. But that’s exactly what happened several weeks ago. I was invited to attend Sears’ Home For The Holidays event hosted by celebrity Chef Art Smith and actress/designer Jaclyn Smith at Tribeca Skyline Studios. The morning started off with a cooking presentation by Art and Jaclyn – spicy chicken and shrimp gumbo for breakfast is better than you might think!
Then we had a chance to meet Jaclyn Smith and speak with her about her namesake brand. Her partnership with the store spans almost 25 years and she recently celebrated the launch of her home line in Kmart. She showed off her holiday display which looked incredibly more expensive than you would imagine. Everything from the furniture (tables and chairs) to the decorations (Christmas tree, ornaments, table runners ) looked incredibly rich and lush, and luxurious. All of this at Kmart? Who knew? Admittedly, I haven’t shopped at a Kmart store in years, but after seeing this beautiful home collection, it made me want to hop on over to Kmart ASAP and begin decorating my apartment.
The beautiful designs in the Jaclyn Smith brand are thanks to chief home design officer, Theresa A. Strickland, and Smith herself. Whether you love the home goods or the fashions (Jaclyn wore a luuxurious low-priced cashmere sweater from her own collection!), check out the Jaclyn Smith collection at Kmart for all your holiday needs!
