Going to Woodbury Common Outlets - Any Tips?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Next weekend I'm going to Woodbury Common outlet stores. It's actually my first time at any outlet stores. Does anyone have any tips, things to look for, things to look out for, or experiences shopping at outlets?

ARRIVE EARLY. That place is almost always an absolute zoo on weekends. Avoid the coach store (if travelling with someone who may be so inclined) as there are, literally, lines out the door to get in.

The Coach store is not avoidable. I'm going with my friend and she has a rack of Coach bags and accessories... How early should I arrive on a Sunday?

10am or so you should be fine.

My advice is not to go. Outlets are for suckers.

For dress & sport shirts at ~$40-60 a pop, which stores should I look in?

When I went about a month ago, I found some decent shirts in that price range at Saks Off Fifth and Barney's Outlet.

I love outlets.

tip #1. go to the clearance racks first. This is where clearance items for the real non outlet stores are sent (this is especially true for the polo store there, i get black label polos for 30 bucks and RRL jeans for 50 bucks there, made in italy polo chinos, etc)

tip#2 look at the racks in the changing rooms, this stuff was already deemed "good enough" by someone else and the chance of finding something awesome is pretty good.

tip#3 if your a AAA member, go to the main office and get a coupon book with some sick coupons.

Oh and a lovely (read: homely) woman by the name of Courtney works at the Brioni outlet and will usually give you a great deal if you joke around with her for a bit. (30% off an already 20% off brioni suit, unmarked 25% off full priced slacks, etc) bring the charm, cause most of the designer outlets are and will be able to negotiate a price.

ASIANS EVERYWHERE

i once tried to shmooze a lady in saks off 5th to give a discount on some brioni and isaia ties, useless.
did get a cashmere sweater by todd & duncan for cheap though.

Anybodys AAA card will work lol.

I was able to get 20% off some dior skytops through some haggling. Dont forget to stop by the RLPL/ black label only store as well...some people tend to miss it and go strait for the polo store.

Also the Prada store sells Churchs at a discount in the back.

Alright, I'll bring an AAA card. I'm so excited! And I just got a job offer last Friday, so you know I'll be emptying my wallet there
