Plan A Trip To This New Long Island Outlet!

arches-outlet-mall-shopping-roundup
There's something a little electrifying about getting designer goodies on the cheap; It's like sneaking a drink from your parents' liquor cabinet for the first time. And you know, nothing gives us that high quite like good outlet shopping—unlike a sample sale or, say, Century21, all of our fave designers are packed together in one neat little manageable package. Enter The Arches, the newest offering from Tanger Outlets, a cluster of name-brand stores less than an hour outside the city in Deer Park, Long Island. With a Florida-meets-Venice vibe (think stucco, red tiled roofs, faux balconies, and a piazza with a giant fountain), you don't need to feel grubby chasing after cheap thrills. While the official opening was over Memorial Day, we headed out there yesterday to give you the skinny on the place. Our conclusion? It's definitely worth the trip. Look for a sick selection of brands like Chris Benz, Giambattista Valli, and Pierre Hardy at Neiman's Last Call, Ray Ban, Prada, and Blinde sunnies at the Optical Shop of Aspen, and majorly marked-down swimsuits at Petit Bateau. There's also everything from Lancôme to Wolford, plus plenty of places to nosh: We scooped up a hot-dog (or four) at Nathan's, right next to the big-ass Movie Theater (if your jonesing for some flicks after fashion...just sayin'). Check out the serious steals we peeped above, 10 good reasons to hit the L.I.E.
