Welcome to a shopper’s paradise! As any visitor to Orlando will tell you –Premium Outlets is just THE best place to be for choice, quality and value for money and as of April 2007 with such great exchange rates-why it’s almost 2 for 1!
It’s situated in the central visitor area-just off International Drive South and Vineland Road. You can see the Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede close by. There is ample parking all around the huge square that makes up the outlet but just to show how popular the outlets are are certain times in the week, Sundays being one of them the car park is crowded and if you are blue badge holder and need a bigger space it can be often very difficult to find one.
The Outlets are a huge square with all the big name stores lining each side of the walkway. The walkway is open air-but it does have a covered top to keep off the sun or showers. The inner square is the food mall with ample seating in the middle with a few speciality shops inside as well
All your favourite stores are here literally from A to Z-starting with Armani and finishing with Zegna with everything else in between. For the fashionistas there’s Banana Republic, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Dior, French Connection, Gap, Guess, Oillily, Papaya, Ralph Lauren and these are just a very small selection. You must come along to discover the others for yourself.
Cool Dudes will revel in Levi. Lacoste, FCUK, the huge Nike store, Reebok, Puma, Timberland, Tommy Hilfiger and more.
Children are well catered for with Carter’s (unmissable for your birth to 1 year old toddler I think-the colours, designs and prices are the best. ) My favourite, favourite Little Me which has some beautiful designs and excellent bargains particularly on their sale rail and if you really want to push the boat out, Hartstrings and Strasbourg Children where you will get something extra special for your little darling but you will pay that bit extra. There’s also an excellent Disney Character Premiere Store where children and adult clothes can be bought as well as other Disney souvenirs at knock down prices.
Jewellery lovers are well catered for with Zales and Ultra Diamonds, Tag Heuer and my favourite watch and bag store Fossil again everything at great choice and greater prices.
By now if you are not ready for refreshments in the shape of Maki of Japan or a refreshing ice cream float from the A & W American Diner then you probably need a comfortable pair of shoes and you can look no further than Ecco, Journeys, Skechers, Nine West and Clarks just to name but a few.
Finally I must mention my favourite beauty store The Cosmetics Company Store. This is most of the companies who come under the world famous Estee Lauder banner-Origins, Aveda, Clinique, Prescriptives, MAC and Bobbi Brown. This is a little gem of a store. Here are all your favourite beauty products under one roof and it is here that you can get the free gifts where you normally have to buy a couple of purchases at full price at your usual make up counter-for just a few dollars. These offers are fabulous- I have seen some of the most lovely beach bags and products inside for little over $20. Fabulous. No wonder this whole place gets packed.
I hope I have whetted your appetite. I’ve mentioned just a small selection-so do come along and see for yourself.
The Outlets are open from 10am till 10pm every day except Sunday when they close at 9pm.
