Let me tell you about the great deals going on at Prime Outlets in Ellenton. I scoped out all of the sales on Saturday for you - and I am SO pleased to report what I found. There are some seriously great deals going on right now. And, I wasn't the only shopper happy to help myself to the best bargains I've found this season. It seems like everybody was out shopping. I think it was the beautiful weather. A long day of bright sun made for the perfect backdrop to a day of bargain hunting. Ellenton is just a stone's throw from Sarasota and Bradenton.
The sale at Banana Republic was OMG! Unbelievable! Beautiful dresses, suits and summer shorts filled the racks. Half-off, 40 percent sales and a clearance rack full of just-right clothes for the season sat just waiting for the perfect owner. Ralph Lauren was delivering on the deals too. I found great clothes for the kids. Cute dresses for less than $15 and chinos, oxfords and polos for less than $20!
Then I headed over to J Crew to pick up a birthday gift for my best girl Nora and was delighted to find the cutest pair of shorts ever. And, while there weren't any monumental mark downs, the great quality makes every purchase well worth the buy. Don't get me wrong -- there were plenty of great deals on everything from career separates to flirty skirts, just right for our sizzling Florida summer nights. As you know, there are lots of ways to determine a deal -- and low price is only one of them.
With more than 100 designer ooutlets, the good news just kept coming. It seemed like I found super shopping treats in every store. Off 5th, Saks' outlet, didn't disappoint. Pretty purses and stellar shoes jumped off the shelf like, Whoa! Brooks Brothers is featuring fantastic fashion for men and women with stunning suits, separates and accessories. And, I saw at least four Escada evening gowns that will get me through the social season.
However, it was Heartstrings Children's Wear that topped the day's deals with a clearance sale like you wouldn't believe. Previously marked-down designer duds for the kiddies had an additional 80 percent taken off at the register. Yes, you read that right -- 80 percent! By the time they deducted all of the discounts, I thought they were going to actually owe me for some of the pieces I bought. Keep a look out particularly for sweet sweaters for the little girls on your list. Of course, nobody's thinking Merino wool now but, if you're like me, you'll be glad come Christmastime that you picked up that beautiful bargain the spring before.
If shopping is on your to do list, you really must make it over to Ellenton where all of the getting right now is super-duper good!
