It’s August and that means you’re about to see the phrase Back to School so many times that if you weren’t already panicked that you’re not going to be able to check everything off your kids’ crazy long list of necessities before that first bell rings, well, you will be now.
So we’re here to help. While what we spend on our broods’ back-to-school (there it is again!) clothes, shoes, and supplies seems like it doubles every year, we’re getting exactly what we need for a fraction of the price this year at the Manchester Designer Outlets. Set in the picture-perfect New England destination of Manchester, Vermont, just three and a half hours from Bergen County, Manchester is home to more than 40 outlets that offer up to 70 percent off designer styles every day. Because if the kiddos are going to outgrow everything we buy them by June (or, more likely, by winter break), then, yeah, everything better be on sale.
Sure there are plenty of designers that we love (and you will too) – think Talbots, Theory, and Kate Spade – but remember, we’re here for the kids. This year, we’re looking at picking up sneakers at New Balance, outerwear at Eddie Bauer, tons of tees at J Crew, button-downs at Vineyard Vines, dress shoes at Bass, and plenty of polos at (where else?) Polo Ralph Lauren. All in one place.
Make a fun family weekend out of it and when everyone is pooped from hiking, biking, or ice cream eating you can make your move and head over to Armani. Just to look ...
