I am no fan of outlet malls….it is a damn dangerous place to go….to waste your hard earn moolah!
My friend drove down from the north to the Cities with a friend of hers. We met up the next day, Saturday, at the outlet mall. I actually hitched a ride from another friend, since she needs do a bunch of shopping for her family before her trip home to M’sia.
It was a blah rainy Saturday. The only good thing was you don’t get wet going from one store to the other. The first store I went to was Aeropostale, the only place where I can find pants that fit me. No pictures but I bought 2 pair of jeans for $16 a piece…on sale.
Can y’all figure out what this line was for, with the crazy humans standing in the wind just to get in to that dreadful store!? There were 70% off plus another 50% coupon given out to customers. Btw, there were tons of folks from C*ina in that store.
And my itchy feet walked in to this store…my dream snow boots for $138 yet I didn’t get it. The original price in the regular mall is around $160, I think. I tried it on, walked around, took them off, put them back on the shelf, took a pic and walked out. I’m going to keep dreaming about it. I might get it someday, somewhere.
I hopped over to Levis. Can’t find anything I like in this place but mainly more for my sister. I think her boys are into Levis. Think of it I was, too, when I was their age. I had a pair of 501 buttonfly, too, eons ago. It was such an in-thing back then. It’s now sitting in someone’s closet…yes, I gave it away coz my widening butt does not fit it anymore.
These 511’s I think are the ones my sister wanted for her #1. They are so cheap on sale, but it was only for that particular color…gray stonewashed.
We were at the outlet for almost 6 hours. I was tired and hungry. I bought a few clearance items from The Loft and couple of keychain LED flash lights from Eddie Bauer for walks in the dark. I wanted to buy another pair of Thermal insulated winter gloves from Columbia Sports but it wasn’t on sale yet. I have to make a trip after winter to catch the after season sales. Definitely not on Black Friday…the day after Thanksgiving. It would be a zoo.
Didn’t take too many pictures. This outlet mall is separated into 3 sections. We went to all three sections. By the time I was at the 3rd section, seriously I wanted to someone to carry me and sit my butt down.
My friend and I finally left the mall around 5:30 pm. Her last stop was at the dreadful C store, however, there were no more lines then. The crowd has dispersed…dinner time. There were a lot of empty shelves in the store…it’s as if they are free. I saw the bag my sister asked me to get her…it was $238 and with 50% off, you do the math. There were so many colors to pick. I bet if my sister was there, she will probably grab a few!
