A week ago I had the honor of being invited to Tanger Outlet's Spring VIP Party, and boy did it feel like one! Partying isn't a normal part of my lifestyle, but let's set the scene and tell you exactly how everything went down.
Tanger Outlets is a shopping mall chain including some of your favorite retailers. A few of my favorites that you'll find at a lot of Tanger Outlets are J.Crew, Saks Fifth, EXPRESS, Banana Republic, and many more. Trust me, its a totally different shopping experience than what you're used to. Why? The prices and discounts are out of this world.
25 Bloggers and tastemakers in the fashion industry were invited to the Tanger Outlets in Mebane, NC. After walking the red carpet and doing the compulsive picture taking of the average blogger, we were given a gift card, food, and champagne then let loose to do as much damage as possible. Even after shopping, they gave us several goodie bags with more coupons, useful items, and a bottle of champagne (which I especially enjoyed - you only got these if you were over 21).
I'm grateful and blessed that I was given this opportunity. I was guaranteed an invite to another shopping spree in October to stock up on trendy fall items, so I'll be sure to do a vlog of some sort to share the experience with you guys.
