Dear Santa, bring me an outlet store ...
So, Deal Diva Colleen and I were talking last week and it occurred to us that some of our favorite -- but more pricey -- stores don''t have outlets.
Anthropologie came to mind.
This is a store that, no matter which town I'm in, I see way more rack browsers than buyers. Yes, their stuff is fabulous, but budget friendly ... not so much. Which is exactly why they need an outlet!
Some of the other Divas had their own outlet wish list: Letitia wants Tiffany's. Stephanie's jonesing for a Betsey Johnson.
If there was a Santa Patron of outlet stores, this is where I'd tell him that the Deal Divas have been good this year. We've blogged a lot and bought mostly clearance items and haven't abused ellipses or the free samples at Costco.
But I'd also check out Outletbound.com. FYI, this site is one handy dandy Web guide to outlet shopping across the U.S.
As for the rest of us, it seems our favorite stores just haven't come aboard the crazy cruise ship we call the outlet mall.
Planning a trip any time soon? Be sure to check the site to see which good outlet shops are near your destination.
