Thanks to others who have asked before swiping pics. I appreciate it. *********************************************************
I was in Las Vegas recently and stayed in the beautiful Bellagio Hotel. The indoor garden area is so relaxing.
I have never been to the Las Vegas outlets, so I decided to brave The Deuce (their bus system) and have an adventure. That's another story. The middle of my excursion contains my first ever Auntie Anne's pretzel dog. It ends with a glass of champagne. Don't worry. I'm going straight to the details because this is going to be a long post.
Here are some of the items I saw in the Banana Republic outlet. They were having 40% off the entire store!
As I went around, I snapped a few random shots, so those are up first. I don't have all the price info. Basically, I want to give you an idea of what's possibly in an outlet near you and you can decide if it's worth a trip. We know outlets can be hit or miss. I kept the pics small, but you can click on them to view in a larger size.
Safari shirt dress
Pink knot dress
Zebra tank - $44.99. I don't recall touching it, so I can't say if it's cotton, polyester or silk. That's a yellow butterfly sleeve sweater tunic behind it. That felt like a ramie/cotton blend, but it could have been cotton/linen.
Random shirts - Not exciting to me, but some of us need basics.
Patterned coat - $139.99, the exterior is cotton, lining acetate
Random orange sweater. It felt good on. A nice basic, but I was fine leaving it in the store.
Cute crop jeans - can't recall the size or the price
They messed them up with by stitching B. Republic on the cuff. Uhn uhn.
Very pretty blue sheath. I wanna say it was $99.99, but it might have been more.
I really, really liked it, but not sure I'd wear it.
T-shirt dress - size S, $36.99, Nice and a good price at net $24 or so, but I already have t-shirt dresses.
Size 4 - $89.99, This was a bit big. I would have gotten a 2 or 4P. It was my least favorite dress I tried on.
Me loveth this orange coat. I was dancing in the dressing room. Sorry, none of the pics came out of that. This had to come home with me. It was $149.99 before the 40%. This is a size 6P. Some of you may own or have seen the version of this they had last Fall. I didn't care for that one even though this one is essentially the same. I think this one is a couple shades lighter and I'm sure it's a bit less well made, but I'll be feeling like a cool million in it.
I love a dress w/pockets! I think it was $89.99 before the 40% off.
Closer so you can see the detail. Size 6P or 4.
I kind of like it w/the flower, but I still can't decide if I'm keeping it or not. The flower doesn't look as wild and oversized in person as it does in the pic. The flower pin/barrette is from H&M and was $5.90.
"If you are a AAA member, bring your ID to 'Guest Services' and ask for the discount brochure (good for a quite a number of the outlet stores). You should get this for free. (Normally, you'd have to pay for it if you don't have AAA.) For BR, they typically offer things like 15% off with minimum purchase of $75 or $100. This is on top of whatever promotion is going on in store."
That tip was dyno-mite! Thanks so much!
Any of these thrill you? If you have any outlet tips you'd like to share, you are cordially invited.
