I went to Tanger Outlets at National Harbor in Maryland last weekend and kind of lost it! The secret to successful outlet shopping is to review the list of stores before heading out and to go with realistic expectations.
I went with some specific items in mind last Saturday. I wanted to find new tennis shoes (at the Nike Factory Outlet) and some new workout pants, which I found super cheap at Gap. But then there are those items that you see and just can’t resist. That item for me on Saturday was a “Grapleaf” green purse from Halston Heritage. I’m ready for fall! But will definitely be carrying it before the weather changes.
Another thing to beware of are stores in an outlet area that are not outlets. Luckily, I avoided most of those this time, but that is not always the case. I also found some great purchases for the boo at Polo Factory Outlet and Nautica. Happy shopping on your next visit to outlets.
