Outlet Shopping Online: The Bargains Abound!

Bateau Sweater
Talbots.com, $21.74
There is almost nothing in this world more satisfying than a great outlet shopping experience.

The trouble is that most of my favorite outlets are a long drive away -- and their deals aren't available online.

I said most.

I'm noticing online outlets popping up left and right lately -- I'm guessing it has something to do with the economy and our need for inexpensive, quality clothing.

Whatever the reason, though, I'm lovin' it!

Here are a few of my favorite online outlet sites ...






Talbots has an online outlet and it's worth bookmarking and checking out every so often. I've scored a number of insane deals on the site. Right now, I've got dibs on this classy striped bateau-neck sweater (Talbots, $21.74), which is down from its original price of $59.50.


Talbots Jacket
Talbots.com, $67.49
Another item I covet is this fantastic Canvas Jacket (Talbots, $67.49), originally priced at $189. The belt isn't included with this coat, and I like it better without -- it has a timeless, Jackie O. meets Audrey Hepburn style that I crave.


Spiegel Dress
Spiegel.com, $79.99
Spiegel is another online retailer with an outlet section. I'm crazy for this Silk Shantung Dress ( $79.99), originally priced at $159. Spiegel's outlet also has plenty of dresses to choose from at around $25. This dress is actually on the high side, but I couldn't resist showing it to you.


Spiegel Skirt
Spiegel.com, $14.99
My favorite Spiegel outlet deal has got to be this Metallic Jacquard Pencil Skirt (Spiegel, $14.99). The animal print look is HUGE among celebrities right now -- and you're not going to find a better price on a good-quality pencil skirt!


Lace Tote
Spiegel.com, $19.99
This Lace-Covered Tote Bag (Spiegel, $19.99) is also a great price -- and so stylish.


Mango Dress
Mango.com, $24.99
I just discovered Mango's online outlet and I'm loving the prices. With 54 pages of cut-rate deals, you're sure to find what you're looking for. This Dress Zumo (Mango, $24.99) is marked down from its original price of $89.90, and perfect for a date night.


Mango Jeans
Mango.com, $19.99
And these "Jeans F5B Carmen8" (Mango, $19.99) are marked down from $69.90. White jeans are hot right now among celebrities and these have a very flattering fit.

Those are a few outlet sites to get you started. Now I want to know your favorite online outlets -- did I miss any good ones? Tell me about them and I'll feature them in a future post!
