Is there anything that signifies the end of summer more than back to school shopping? Especially after you pull out last fall’s wardrobe only to realize that all of your children have grown several inches in the past year and just about everything needs to be boxed up in the hand-me-down bin for younger family members.
Fortunately, a quick visit to Cincinnati Premium Outlets was a one-stop shop for preparing our closets for all of our back to school needs this fall and saving big on name brand clothing and apparel.
Before we ventured into the shopping center, I made sure to sign up for the VIP Shopper Club. While it’s exclusive to Premium Outlet guests, it’s 100% free and takes as little as five minutes to sign up. Members have access to exclusive online offers not available to the public and also receive periodic center updates.
I downloaded their app on my phone, too, and was immediately alerted to a Buy One Get One 50% off shoes deal at the Skechers Outlet, which was an incredible deal considering I had two little pairs of feet to buy for. Both little ones were thrilled with their light-up selection, and I was happy to save $20!
We also made a stop to the Vans Outlet to look for a pair of shoes that my oldest has been eyeing of the past year.
Combined with some new soccer-appropriate gear from the Adidas outlet, he’s suddenly playing that role of pre-teen really well. (Which seems much easier to swallow when my pocketbook isn’t empty after realizing that his pre-teen taste is a little more expensive than what I’m used to!) Thankfully, Adidas was running a great sale where all clearance items were an additional 30% off – a super helpful savings when little brother wanted a look just like his big brother’s!
Another visit on our list was The Children’s Place – truly a one-stop-shop. With sizes and styles that fit all three of my kiddos, I did some serious fall stocking up there! Not only did I bring home multiple pieces for each child, but I also saved $145.61! Let me say that again: ONE-HUNDRED FORTY-FIVE DOLLARS! Plus, they sent me home with $60 in Place Cash for a return visit later this fall.
A lot of what I purchased from The Children’s Place will transition from summer into fall when paired with jeans, jackets and sweaters. This dress for my daughter can easily be worn with a sweater or leggings as the temperatures cool.
One really great thing about Cincinnati Premium Outlets is that it truly offers a shopping experience. In addition to an amazing selection of shops, there is an outdoor space that includes dining tables situated outside of the food court, a green area, and a play set. This is a very necessary stop for our family while shopping because it gives the kids a chance to get their wiggles out between stores, making the trip more tolerable for the under-five crowd.
Back to School shopping and savings at Cincinnati Premium Outlets is going on now through August 18th, so if you’re local to the area you MUST go soon! As a busy mom with three kids of different ages, stages, and tastes, I love the selection of shops they provide all in one place and the mega savings found at each retailer.
