I always have a wonderful experience when I visit the Armani outlet. The sales team is great, the store room is always neat and organized and every time I go, I leave with a “once-in-a-lifetime” find.

There is something in the air when you walk into the Giorgio Armani in Manchester Vermont. It could be the rich textiles, funky trends or even the smooth feel of every single article that you walk by — It’s almost impossible not to run your fingers across the sleeve.

Perhaps, most of all, the atmosphere is SCREAMING with amazing deals and affordable prices.

Just in time for the holiday season, these puffy coats are the perfect gift and a fashionable alternative to your old winter coat.

I’m a watch fanatic, and when I saw these real ceramic watches, I nearly melted. I love a couple with his/hers stylish watches… Who doesn’t?!

No one does jeans like Armani. He designs the perfect blend of style and comfort — The new denim selection at the Armani Outlet at MDO is great, with prices ranging from $50 – $1,000, there is a pair for everyone and every price range.

And if you aren’t already out the door and on your way to the outlet, I’ll leave you with a few more treats from the Giorgio Armani Outlet in Manchester, Vermont.

P.S. Stay tuned for our holiday shopping blog post — everything for you, your family and friends!

P.P.S. Of course, I have to show the shoes!

See you at the outlets!


The perfect holiday outfit is not as hard to find as you might imagine if you know where to shop! The Manchester Designer Outlets have something for everyone’s holiday occasions – whether it’s a weekend away with the family, a night out on the town, or an office party, there are fashions to fit all your functions!

I have several holiday occasions to attend myself, so there are plenty of new clothes I need. The only problem was, where to begin? A stop in to Anne Taylor gave me a good place to start – shoes. My favorite pair featured was a classic black patent leather pair of heels. They are the perfect staple for my holiday wardrobe – the patent leather can add a little shine to an office party outfit, and they can double as snazzy dancing shoes for later in the evening!

Another item I picked up while here was a few pairs of tights. What better way to look fantastic, and keep your legs warm in this cold weather? The huge selection of colors and patterns of tights, combined with great prices made it hard for me to stop at just a couple pairs.

What looks better with tights than a pencil skirt?  I found an adorable one in Brooks Brothers. The red and navy blue checked pattern is perfect for this wintery season.

One last stop at J. Crew gave me the final items to tie my outfit together. This store featured everything from sparkly tops to blazers and sweaters. I picked up a silky top and glittery necklace to go with my outfit, and I was all set!

The holidays are often called “magical” and “the most wonderful time of the year” in songs, commercials and advertisements. However, often there is a lot of gift-giving stress involved with all that holiday spirit! Your worries can be solved when you come to the Manchester Outlets to do your holiday shopping.

Shopping for a man? There are endless possibilities. Polo, Giorgio Armani and Kenneth Cole all have men’s apparel. Hickey Freeman and Bobby Jones have some wonderful golf clothes for some casual time on the course, as well as suits and jackets for when your man needs to be more formal. Clark’s Bostonian has a wonderful selection of men’s shoes. Whether for dressy or casual occasions, keep your man in stylish footwear by shopping here. Another key place for men’s gifts is Brooks Brothers. Whether you need a gift for your husband, father, or boyfriend, the huge men’s selection at Brooks Brothers is sure to offer something for all the men on your shopping list. Give the gift of no ironing! This shop is highlighting its “no iron” dress shirt as a great holiday gift.

Another fantastic Brooks Brothers option is the men’s cashmere sweaters. The colors are phenomenal, and the fabric will make your man feel not only special, but comfortable too!

You need to pick up a hostess gift? With all the holiday revelry going on, you probably have a lot of parties and family functions to attend. What gift fits everyone? A Yankee Candle of course. Stop by this quaint candle shop and smell all their amazing scents. There is one for everyone on your list.

Who knows what to get for their mother-in-law? This is always a tricky relationship to shop for…however, the perfect solution could be found at Yves Deloreme. This store features absolutely gorgeous designer throw pillows, bedding, and home décor. A new set of beautiful bedding might be the perfect addition for your mother-in-law’s guest room, and you could get to enjoy it when you visit!

If you want something a little less formal, there are also some luxurious Yves Deloreme robes that are sure to be used all winter to keep warm and cozy!

A gift for your jet-setting friend? You know that friend who always seems to be traveling somewhere amazing? You don’t want to get them anything that isn’t conducive to traveling so the basics are eliminated – no heavy books, no bulky sweaters, nothing liquid over three ounces, etc. What about a new set of luggage? With the selections at Tumi, your gift will have function and fashion combined!

What about everyone else? There is a great answer for this one – accessories! No matter whom it is for, accessories add some pizzazz to any outfit. Whether it is jewelry from Anne Taylor, scarves, gloves or men’s ties from Brooks Brothers, or a beautiful leather clutch or wallet from Tumi, these items will be a great part of any outfit, and a wonderful holiday gift.

Happy holiday shopping!

The Luxury Girls Getaway is the perfect event for this time of year. The weather is getting colder, schedules are getting busier, and the holiday season is coming up.  This luxurious ladies weekend in Manchester is the perfect solution to relieving all of those life stressors! The Equinox Resort and the Manchester Designer Outlets created this weekend – for girls only! – to relax, pamper, and rejuvenate all those in attendance, giving ladies a much-needed break from the demands of their daily schedules.

This event was kicked off on Friday night with a Designer Fashion show and elegant dinner in the Equinox Resort’s “Rockwell Room”.  A room designed to make the ladies in attendance feel extravagant, yet classy, set the tone for the theme of the evening.

Decked out in the latest fashions, models walked the runway to highlight some of the best the stores have to offer this season.

Designers featured in the show included several of the Manchester Designer Outlet Stores – Michael Kors, Kate Spade New York, Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, Brooks Brothers, Coach, Theory, and Giorgio Armani.

In addition to the high-fashion designer show, the ladies in the audience loved the up close and personal views they received of the clothing after the show, when the models circulated the room, talked with the ladies, and maybe even handed out some store discounts!

This fashionable kick-off night was highlighted by DJ Jake Allen from Fly 92.3, who kept the music (and ladies!) hopping with songs like “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and reminded ladies “This weekend is all about YOU!  No sports games on TV, no PTA meetings, no laundry to do! Just dancing, shopping, and having fun!”

The rest of the weekend included fantastic perks and events available only for the “Luxury Girls”, such as no sales tax on clothing at the outlet stores, fashionable makeovers, popular Pilates and Yoga classes, and famous Vermont breakfasts, as well as gourmet meals throughout the day.

Become a luxury lady yourself next year, and join in on the fun AND fashion!!

It’s possible that my love affair with Giorgio Armani has hit such lengths that even my boyfriend might be jealous.

My favorite thing about Armani is that you’re not just wearing designer, you’re wearing a piece of art. Every bag, brioche, suit, necklace, etc. is created with such intricate detail and beauty. Not to mention… a man in Armani? Whew.. breathtaking.

I think that this suit reeks “sexy” but “so cool” both at the same time. The crisp white shirt pulls it all together in a smart, sophisticated manner. Guys, don’t forget about all of your options for comfortable and stylish shoes!

It’s easy to fall in love when everything is this good. Armani embodies a fun, young style while still holding onto timeless fashion that will never disappear. That’s what makes it all so loveable. Everything Armani is classy, yet still identifiably chic and trendy.

With untouchable craftsmanship and prices that even I can afford, I highly suggest anyone and everyone to hit up the Armani outlet in Manchester Vermont.

Watch out boyfriends and husbands, once my fellow fashion lovers check out Armani, they might fall in love as quickly as I have!

Bold patterns, bright colors and chic styles line the walls of the Kate Spade Outlet in Manchester Vermont.

Kate Spade makes me happy. From classy handbags, to fun and exciting jewelry, sweet ballet flats and duck-head umbrellas — Ms. Spade has developed the ability to create products that inspire positive thinking, drive spontaneous smiles and seemingly brighten up a rainy day.

Luscious new shipments have hit the shelves just in time for the long-awaited Spring Season. Reeking sophistication and funk, while still maintaining the timeless Kate Spade elegance seems to make these styles even more irresistible.

One of the many things that I admire about the Kate Spade brand is it’s ability to launch new, exciting and trendy accessories — but never straying too far from the identifiable name. These long necklaces can easily dress up any plain white tank, while at the same time creating a “statement” piece… or, something your friends will talk about.

With all of the fabulous deals at Kate Spade this season, it would be hard NOT to spend your rent check in one stop. You know I’m a sucker for accessories, how can you turn anything this fabulous down?

Irresistible. Simply Irresistible.

Find out for yourself at the Kate Spade Outlet in Manchester, Vermont — I’m certain that you’ll leave feeling Happy!

What better way to welcome the fresh scents, warm breezes, and bright colors of spring than a look at the Five Seasons store in Manchester, Vermont. Lilly Pulitzer can turn any day around with the bright colors, bold patterns, and sweet styles that are signature-ly all their own.

The Five Seasons Lilly Pulitzer store is stock-full of the well-loved brand’s gear for everyone in your family — at prices you won’t believe.

The perfect shop for a last minute dress to wear to a wedding, date night, or even just to the pool. This shop has it all and then some. Check out all the adorable finds that Lilly has put her signature “happy” touch to. If this store doesn’t leave this store with a big smile and ready for the warm weather…. I don’t know what will!
