Premium Outlets sales are my number one secret to shopping fashionably on the cheap. Premium Outlets consistently have great quality brands at discount prices. Other outlet malls just cannot compare and are dismal at best. Stay away from them.
I just got back from the Premium Outlets Mother’s Day sales. While mother’s day is not an advertised sale day, I did find alot of good deals such as: entire Coach store 50-65% off, $24 Lululemon pants, and BCBG $4000 Herve Leger dress for $900). I have always lived in close proximity to a good Premium Outlet. I currently live in the middle of a triangle of Premium Outlet stores, and have learned how to get the best deals at the outlet stores.
It’s important to know that some stores are actually off brands of the real brand. You can always count on the quality of staying brands such as Tory Burch, Gucci, Lululemon, etc, who are all are true artists of fashion and who would scoff at making an off brand of their own brand. So make sure you do your research.
Rule number one to getting the best deals at Premium Outlets is to only shop big sale days. You get such better savings at such huge discounts. On holidays, stores either offer 30-60% (BCBG, Coach, VeryBradley) off the entire store or have crazy clearance racks (ahem $9 Lululemon pants). Did I ever tell you about those amazing $9 Lululemon pants? These are the crazy things you find on big sale days at Premium Outlets. My favorite is Black Friday at these outlets, the parking however is a nightmare.
