Women’s handbags, especially those made of leather, can leave a deep hole in a pocketbook you haven’t even purchased yet. Outlet locations can offer great discounts on women’s handbags, as long as you know where to shop for them. There are a few women’s handbag retailers that offer great discounts for high quality products at the outlet or factory store locations.
1) Kate Spade
Kate Spade outlets often send coupons and promotions via e-mail, so if you’re really a Kate Spade girl, it’s best to get on their e-mail list next time you stop into a Kate Spade outlet location. They often offer large discounts on normal products, on new arrivals, and their sale section is huge. If you’re looking at a color that could be considered seasonal like pink (the Kate Spade green is not seasonal, ever.), wait until the color is not in season and then go in and check their sale section. I was able to nab a pretty big pink leather Kate Spade at a deep discount (way over 50%) over Christmas because they said the color was not in season.
On many weekends, you’ll find the Coach Factory Stores offering extra 15% off coupons at the door, and even if it isn’t the weekend, you can shop their sale section, which promises even bigger discounts. Their normal merchandise is usually discounted about 20-30% for great Coach products. Even if the product is somehow flawed, you’ll never be able to notice it, and the Coach Factory Store products last just as long as the normal retail store products. Any discount is worth it when the handbags retail for over $100.
You may not consider Fossil a place you’d shop for a handbag, but besides watches, Fossil outlets also offer deep discounts on sunglasses, handbags, and other kinds of bags. While these won’t be leather bags like Coach, Kate Spade, or Dooney & Bourke, they are still fun tote around bags for everyday occasions.
4) Dooney & Bourke
Dooney & Bourke outlet locations are similar to Coach Factory Stores in their sales and offerings. While there are fewer Dooney & Bourke locations, their sale sections offer deep discounts on quality products. The best part of Dooney & Bourke outlet locations is that you can often find bags that are on sale in the current line but may have tiny flaws that cause them to have been shipped to the outlet. You’ll never notice the flaw, and you’ll enjoy the discount!
LeSportsac Factory Stores are far and few between so if you’re lucky to run into one, take advantage of it. LeSportsac offers handbags, luggage, and other bags with creative, fashionable designs for people with all kinds of personality. In the factory stores, you’ll often find pretty good discounts for high quality bags, and you’ll always be able to find a fun, chic design that you’ll love forever.
