Planning for summer fun begins with having the right apparel and accessories. After a long winter, we look into our closets and realize the choices can be limited. Having the perfect look–comfortable, flattering and on trend –is any shopper’s goal. There is no better way to get summer kicked off with a bang than shopping and saving. Be sure you’ve got the right outfit to go with every occasion on your summer calendar starting today!

Reasons you need that perfect new summer look:

  • Family reunion.
  • Wedding.
  • Picnic.
  • Trip to the beach.
  • Weekend with girlfriends.
  • Family vacation.

If you have a full agenda of summer fun planned then the best place to find those great looks at great prices is at your favorite outlet shopping destination.

Outlet centers are unique because they are made up of a variety of shops, often exclusive to a specific brand. Outlet centers  offer a shopper the option to find what they are looking for using multiple store options.

You can find everything, and anything at an outlet center:

  • Shoes.
  • Handbags.
  • Dresses.
  • Summer shorts/tops.
  • Beach attire.
  • Hats and sunglasses.
  • Jewelry.
  • Gifting ideas.

The first outlet center opened in the 1970s in Reading, Pennsylvania. However, the first outlet store opened in the 1930s by Anderson-Little and featured men’s clothing. Today, outlet centers have a variety of clothing and shoe stores, making finding that perfect look easier than ever. In addition, outlet centers  are not limited to clothing items anymore, they have stores with just about anything you may need for all your summer fun.
