Shopping the latest and greatest cutting-edge fashion definitely gives my heart a flutter, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love a great deal as much as the next person, especially on discounted merchandise. Perhaps that’s why I love shopping at outlets as much as I do! Up until recently, outlet shopping meant a trek down to the Seattle Premium outlets, but thanks to the McArthurGlen Designer Outlets opening this past summer in Richmond, now getting those lust-worthy deals is at my fingertips.
Since opening in July, McArthurGlen Vancouver has steadily added more and more retailers to their original 80 store offering, with a total of 60 additional stores added by the time second phase construction completes in about 2 years time. Right now shoppers can enjoy such goodies as the J.Crew Factory Store, Boss by Hugo Boss, Armani, Ports 1961, Desigual, Secret Location, and, the very soon to be open Brooks Brothers (just to name a few). With all these options (and the crowds to go along with them), it can be a bit overwhelming however to navigate the outlets so that your time AND money will be well spent. So to ensure this, I wanted to share with you all my tried and true tips on outlet shopping as part of this installment of #StyleByManaREWIND, compiled over years of visiting outlet centers in Seattle and elsewhere. These tips were originally broadcast on CTV Morning Live when I covered the McArthurGlen Opening and you can now watch them in the video below…
