Top 10 Fall Outlet Shopping Tips

Planning a fall outlet shopping trip? Make sure you check out these time and money saving tips first:

  1. Transition is the key for bridging the gap between Summer and Fall, so think of which favorite Summer pieces can be kept with just a few minor additions.
  2. Shop the outlets for transitional pieces like jackets, belts and scarves that can easily take a Summer piece into the cooler weather.
  3. Stock up on tights and socks for the whole family now in the Fall when the outlets have their greatest variety – these are items that you can wear all Winter and will be happy to have a stash of on hand.
  4. Winter Outerwear is plentiful now in most outlet centers, so this is your moment to outfit the family for school, sports and dress coats and jackets.
  5. Speaking of sports, don’t wait until the New Year to start your annual promise to get in shape – the sports oriented outlet stores are full of apparel and athletic shoes to get you and the family on the move – and starting now in the Fall will mean you have less to make up for come New Years!
  6. Also shop now for the most extensive collection of boots to get you through the Winter in style.
  7. Use the beautiful Fall weather, away football games and Fall foliage tours as a great excuse to visit outlet centers outside your home town – check out Outlet Bound for outlet centers in the area you are planning to visit and plan your shopping visit.
  8. Make sure that you join the customer loyalty program at the center you are visiting in order to receive special offers during your visit.
  9. Check the web sites of your favorite outlet stores and brands to see if there are any specials on offer and take the coupons with you.
  10. Even if you forget your printed coupon, if you have it on your mobile device and can show it to the sales associate, most stores will honor a valid discount offer.
