Who doesn’t love a field trip to go shopping right? In an effort to be AHEAD of the game and to start my holiday shopping, I made the trek up to the North Georgia Premium Outlets! Armed with a few gift cards and plenty of time to spare, I made a list, checked it twice, and went to town!
Now, if you KNOW me and you KNOW my propensity to save a penny here and there, then you know I was in heaven. I am not a stranger to the outlet stores! When I lived in California, I stayed only minutes from outlet stores! Constantly stalking the Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Nordstrom Rack and Last Call by Neiman Marcus!
So when I found out that they had a sister store in Georgia, I had to check it out!!! I had no idea what to expect, I purposely did NOT research the stores at the outlets, I wanted to be surprised and seriously wanted to treat this as an exploration! Hehehe!
What did I find? HOMIGAWD, I THINK I got about half of my shopping done!
My nieces and nephews? Check and double check!
Boo Friend? Check!
Honestly, all I have left are a few homies and my brother in law and stepdad!
So what did I get? You have to make sure that you do not tell anyone… PROMISE???
Okay, so for my mom, I snatched her up a few pairs of jeans, because her current pair are a bit too big and slightly too short. My mother has legs for days, so Levi’s was my stop for her! 34 inch inseams for the win! I still have a bit more to get for her, so who knows what else Santa will hook her up with!
My sister? Now, she is a HUUUUGE Fossil handbag collector.
So, being that they had an outlet, I scored a hot pink bag with a matching wallet for her! Woot! I even texted back and forth with Ricardo (bro n law) to ensure the right pick. We went through a few, as my first choices were “very Marie” and not Krystee. But I got her hooked up!
I went bananas for the kiddos at Osh Kosh. I saw these overalls with a Tutu on the bottom! I got two colors for Zoee. Silas? He got a few overalls too and Noah got hooked up with a few cool tees! I spent under $150 and had quite a few items that will last them ages! Hehehe!
For the Boo Friend? Yes, I have a boo friend. It was all about shoes. A size 13 fancy casual shoe is a bit of a hard find, but Saks OFF Fifth AND Cole Haan both had them! I must add, it is a bit odd shopping for a man. Especially one that is 6’3” and a size 13 shoe! But I made it work!
I still have a bit of shopping to do, but I have never been this ahead of the curve when it came to shopping for the holidays! Add to the fact that I scored DEALS on top of DEALS?!?! AND I found another place to score amazing deals at North Georgia Premium Outlets?!?
Yes. Honey! I didn’t even make it all he way through, because… Scandal was coming on! I had to get home but when I do come back, it is all about me! ME and the DKNY store!
But, I have to ask you, do you shop at a Simon Premium Outlet center near you? Have you even started shopping? Are you one to wait until last minute? Let’s talk!
