Last weekend, I got the incredible opportunity to go to Manchester, Vermont. Before I was born, my parents would always take road trips up to Vermont and rave about them, so I was so excited to go. I have heard a lot about Manchester being a gorgeous town, but it was even more than that. The people, culture, and scenic beauty that it offers were beyond my expectations. I am very much a city girl. I love the hustle and bustle and the art that NYC offers, but it is always nice to get away and clear my head. Manchester, Vermont now feels like a new home away from home.
The town offers so much to do! It is known for its’ skiing, but the restaurants, art culture, and shopping is what won my heart. The Manchester Designer Outlets are weaved into the town. Unlike other outlets where it’s allotted a specific shopping center type property, the Manchester Designer Outlets were storefront properties lined up down a road. Every store manager or sales associate was nice, friendly, helpful and beyond educated about both the store and the town. They made it feel like a personal shopping experience, something I was not use to receiving in New York City.
The stores that they had ranged from Clarks, to Michael Kors, to Tumi, to Armani. They had price points and items for everyone. I made out extremely well there, hitting up Theory, The Cosmetic Store, Kate Spade New York, and Mela Artisans. See below to see what I got, the deals they offered, and how much I spent compared to the original price.

The Cosmetic Store
The cosmetic store had an additional deal where if you spent $100 dollars, you would receive 40% off the already marked down prices that I did on the below items.

I had the most incredible weekend in Manchester and cannot wait to go back soon. Every season they have something new and fun going on to share. I hope to be going up there shortly for the holidays where I heard the scenery is even more beautiful and the deals are perfect for gift shopping!
