We shopped Friday night, stayed at La Quinta in San Marcos (not impressed...I don't recommend it), then arrived back at the Outlet Malls by 9am. We shopped amongst other Spring Breakers, including travellers from Mexico, all day Saturday and arrived home by 10 pm. It was a busy place, but not overcrowded.
Evidence of a happy trip:
Full trunk (see above)
Empty wallet (see below)
Here are a few of my favorite purchases:
Original outlet price: $80.
Original price for the sweater: $99
Dress: originally $78
- Avoid traffic. We left at the wrong time, hitting Austin just before rush hour, which added an extra 2 hours to our trip.
- Bring snacks. Dining options are slim at the outlet malls.
This is only part 1, because in May I'm headed back for a birthday/Mother's Day trip with friends. Wanna come?
