If you’re itching for some serious bargain hunting or just want a few new outfits for the coming season but don’t want to break the bank, the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets have everything you’ll need from head to toe (or hat to shoes) and everything in between.
Located right off of I-495, and just 45 minutes from downtown Boston, the Wrentham Outlets offer all the good stuff — apparel, accessories, shoes, food, home goods, and so much more, at 25-65% off everyday.
If you present a AAA ID card or student ID at customer service, you’ll receive an additional discount book valid at nearly every store on the premises. You could also sign up for the VIP Shopper Club which grants you online access to the VIP lounge, additional coupons, and insider information from the brands you care about.
The outlets feature stores for men, women, children, foodies, athletes, shoe freaks, and so many more. Some men’s fashion destinations include Saks off 5th, Robert Graham, and All Saints. But there’s also specialty stores like Godiva Chocolatier, Nike Factory Store, and Restoration Hardware.
I was recently invited by the Wrentham Outlets to come shop my favorite stores, with accompanying vouchers and gift cards, and build a spring wardrobe and couldn’t have had any better luck than I did that day! Here are the three store at which I had the best finds.
7 For All Mankind
My favorite jeans to wear are my 7 For All Mankind “Paxtyn” skinny jeans. I have three different washes and they fit me like a damn glove. While scoping out the styles at the 7FAM store, I came across a style I don’t often see at other 7FAM destinations — the “Rhigby” skinny jean.
I had been looking for a great light wash to add to my collection, especially because it looks great with lighter spring colors.
The “Rhigby” offers a lot of space in the crotch but holds a great taper down the leg which can be an issue with other skinny jeans.
This awesome find, goes for about $130 — almost $70 off other full priced options.
I’ve been a proud owner of the Ugg “Ascot” moccasin for years now. This is a shoe you must own, and Tom Brady would back me up on that, probably.
But after stopping into the Ugg store at the Wrentham Outlets, I found their new chukka boot called the “Freamon.”
The Ugg “Freamon” hops on the lightweight sole trend that is taking the shoe world by storm. Featuring the Treadlite by Ugg technology, this fun new chukka is an excellent option for running around Boston all day in style, but comfortably!
This bad Larry retails for $110, which is normal Ugg pricing, but well worth the purchase for the long mileage and comfort you can get out of them!
J Crew Factory Outlet
My biggest win of the day came at J Crew Factory Outlet. Admittedly, I usually shop the full line stores because most of their styles fit my body perfectly, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the styles at the outlet fit quite similarly.
I was able to find a killer “Thompson” suit in a gray/blue, light-weight cotton, perfect for dressing up in warmer weather.
One thing I’ve experimented with is wearing a cool, low-profile sneaker with a slim suit like the “Thompson,” and the combo looks sharp as a tack!
To accompany the suit, I also found a great oxford shirt, a striped tie, and a unique-looking rope bracelet to accessorize with.
I enjoyed the additional 10% off of my purchase of $100 or more (coupon book), which brought the total for all my great new spring gear to just under $250… that’s bananas!
