Woodbury Common Premium Outlets

About an hour's drive outside of the city are the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets.  We went at the weekend and I got some amazing bargains!

It is the first Premium Outlets that I have come across with so many high end shops such as Gucci, Jimmy Choo, Prada, Dior and Versace.  Examples of savings include 50-65% off of Jimmy Choo shoes and 50% off of Gucci bags.  They also have a great selection of other designers and high street favourites all offering significant discounted goods. 

We stocked up on gym gear in the various sports shops on site and they also have a great 'Lululemon' store where everything is half price.  I now have a decent gym wardrobe so I can keep up with the New York women!

I got some lovely tops from 'Kenneth Cole', one of which was discounted to $6 when I reached the cashier, and my husband got a great coat from 'Coach' which was less than half price.

I was slightly disappointed with the 'Samsonite' luggage shop as everything was still very expensive and there was hardly anything on sale.  Also, don't bother with the Anne Fontaine store, as again nothing was discounted below regular price.

If you haven't got a car or don't fancy driving, you can get a bus to the outlets from the Port Authority (42nd Street and 8th Ave) or the MTA Metro-North Railroad offers a train service at weekends.

The Woodbury Common Premium outlets are definitely worth a visit, especially if you want to buy something really special or high-end as you could save yourself a small fortune.  I will be dragging my husband back there around my birthday that's for sure!
