If You’re Prepping for Back-to-School
Shopping for pint-sized preschoolers? You’ll find outlets for Janie & Jack (polished and preppy), OshKosh B’Gosh (a classic) and Carter’s (great PJs, too!). Those with tweens or teens can find favorite standbys like Levi’s, Old Navy and Gap, as well as trendier togs at H&M and Forever 21.
If You’re Outdoorsy
Those who’ll be bundling up for another Northeast winter can stock up on iconic quilted jackets and other outerwear at the Barbour outlet, or find a new fleece or three at Columbia Sportswear. Skiers, campers, climbers and hikers will want to peruse the apparel and equipment at Mountain Warehouse.
If You’re a Beauty Junkie
The only thing better than a fountain-of-youth-in-a-bottle beauty score is one that you purchased for a fraction of the price. Head to Bare + Beauty for Bare Minerals, NARS, Laura Mercier and Shiseido products, or to Cosmetic Company Store for goodies by Bobbi Brown, MAC and Estee Lauder. Kiehl’s- and Lancôme-lovers will find plenty to sample at Luxury Beauty Store, while bathing beauties should make a beeline for Bath & Body Works.
If You’re a Foodie
Wannabe chefs know that once you cook with a Le Creuset dutch oven, you’ll never use anything else. Pick up one for yourself at the outlet, where the 90-year-old retailer offers deep discounts on its trademark enameled cast-iron cookware. Afterwards, up your chopping game at Zwilling J.A. Henkels, which is one of the leading manufacturers of forged cutlery (aka your new favorite chef’s knives).
If You’re a Label Lover
On the lookout for a Stella McCartney blazer? A Zac Posen tote? A Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress? You never know what you’ll find at Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth, and that’s part of the fun. For more straight-forward designer excursions, browse the wares at Kate Spade New York, DKNY and Michael Kors.
If You’re All Business
Well-heeled execs will find plenty of shops well-suited to their needs. There’s Brooks Brothers, for one, as well as Boss Outlet, Cole Haan and Ann Taylor Factory Store. The J.Crew outlet also offers great deals on suits, dresses, shoes and business-casual slacks and skirts.
If You’re a Fitness Fiend
Whether you’re a runner, a yogi, a baller or just a parent on the sidelines, you’ll find plenty of athletic and athleisure brands on offer. Nike, Reebok, Puma, Champion and Under Armour all have storefronts — and great deals on everything from sneakers to swimwear.
