This Ultimate Holiday Outlet Sale post was sponsored by Cincinnati Premium Outlets. All experiences and opinions shared are my own.
With the season of giving upon us, an afternoon trip to Cincinnati Premium Outlets in Monroe, Ohio was on the agenda ! I’m a Northern Kentucky gal, but the deals for the Ultimate Holiday Outlet Sale made this day trip oh so worth it!
Before we hit the outlets, I downloaded the Exclusive Deal Guide. It is full of additional deals – many of which you can stack on top of current in-store sales. With a big family of our own, and a long list of extended family members to shop for, the additional savings is very much appreciated!
You can access this guide directly from your phone by texting GIFT223 to 74666, too!
We had several people to shop for, including our sister-in-laws, parents, niece and nephew, and a few last minute add-ons for our kiddos and each other. The goal: find gifts that were thoughtful, matched to the style of the person, and, of course, maximize our savings! (That’s where the deal guide comes in really handy!)
Funny story – When Brandon and I first started dating back in high school, he would gift me a Ralph Lauren Polo Bear every year at Christmastime. It was a tradition that lasted into college. There were no shortage of cute bears throughout the Polo Ralph Lauren outlet this year. Everything from mugs, to tees, to pajama pants.
However, I couldn’t pass up this adorable Polo Bear adorned sleeper for Charlie. Just a little reminder of our past that I can save as a keepsake for my children when they have their own little ones someday.
My sister has the most precious one-year-old twins…and a bit of a shoe habit! So, I was immediately drawn to the precious collection of booties at the Ugg outlet. Fuzzy pink-bowed Uggs are a must-have when spoiling your niece, right?!
I couldn’t wait to gift them, so both kiddos are already modeling these precious finds!
Moms and dads of small children will feel me on this gift: shoes. 100% practical and 100% necessary. It’s been months since I issued them their new school shoes back in August and, not surprisingly, they have put some miles on each pair. And, if they’re not literally wearing them thin, they’re outgrowing them at superspeed! Thankfully, the Skechers outlet was offering a BOGO 50% deal that made my wallet very happy. (If you’re in the market for a single pair, the deal guide has a 25% off a single item code!)
Preteen Boy Gifts
Our oldest son is eleven and liiiiiiiiiives in athletic clothes. It’s a stretch these days to get him into anything besides sweatshirts and athletic pants. Who can blame him? They’re so comfortable and cozy this time of year!
The Under Armour outlet came through for us big time. The whole store was 40% off and, yet again, the holiday deal guide has a code to make the deals even sweeter!
Last time I visited CPO, I was dumbfounded by the deals at the Michael Kors outlet. The entire store was up to 70% off and they immediately handed me a coupon for an additional 20% off when I entered. I found a classic leather bag that retailed for almost $400 for $79! SEVENTY-NINE DOLLARS!
It was perfect for toting around my personal purse items, but also easily fit a few diaper bag essentials and my laptop. So multifunctional. I know they will appreciate it as much as I do!
I had to defer to my husband’s help for picking out a half-zip pullover for his dad at the Ralph Lauren outlet. A good thing, too, since he also wanted one for himself! These neutrals fit right into this season’s tonal trends when paired with a darker khaki pant. The RL outlet also has another stackable deal found here!
Husband and Wife Gifts
As I mentioned, I had a little help shopping for Brandon at the Polo Ralph Lauren outlet. (Read: he picked out the style and color sweater he liked best!) As such, I gave him a little help, too. The GAP Factory store was full of deals, making it easy to save an additional 15% on purchases over $75. Too easy!
Vests are back in a big way this season, as the perfect layering accessory. For fourteen bucks, I knew this would make an excellent piece to wear for any occasion. Just as easy to pop on for more formal holiday affairs, as it is to throw on for preschool pick-up over a sweatshirt and leggings. I’m all about some inexpensive versatile wardrobe staples.
There were also racks upon racks of bold and colorful sweaters and tees, another fabulous trend for the 2019 holiday season. I grabbed a cable knit sweater in the most gorgeous red – a total nod to the retro look from the 1980s.
Pretty sure that my own mother owned a similar sweater back in the day, I was delighted when my little sister produced this gem from the Knight Family Archives…
Style tip: SIZE UP, FRIENDS! I’m typically a size medium across most retailers, but grabbed and XL in this sweater. Oversized, warm and comfortable. Also, pairs great with leggings and you can pull the sleeves down over most of your hand. Don’t deny yourself this simple pleasure.
Another successful trip!
I’m not kidding when I profess my love for these outlets. The in-store discounts are fabulous and the deal guides compound the savings even more. Be sure to visit the Cincinnati Premium Outlets during the Ultimate Holiday Outlet Sale between now and December 24th so you can take advantage of the exclusive deals found in the guide I mentioned!
