Sponsored Post: We’ve told you about how much we love the Manchester Designer Outlets before. With more than 40 retailers, we can find everything from apparel to accessories from high-end labels -- think Armani, Theory, and Kate Spade -- along with more casual brands like New Balance and J. Crew with a dash of art and home accessories thrown in. It’s our go-to spot for holiday shopping and a lifesaver this time of year since we can find everything we need in one place for up to 70 percent off every day (and really that’s all we ever wanted from Santa.) And here’s the other great thing about Manchester: It’s the perfect New England destination for a quick getaway, just three and a half hours from Bergen County. Plan your visit by clicking the link here. Outlets open 7 days a week.
