5 Tips To WIN Black Friday: Find The Best Black Friday Sales
An escape to Vermont is always a good idea no matter the season. The crisp air, friendly faces, tasty food, and shopping never disappoint... and neither do the best Black Friday sales at Manchester Designer Outlets.
With the holidays just around the corner and the countdown to Black Friday in full effect, I would love to share with you why a trip to Manchester will do you good. I can't say I'm an expert on Black Friday, but I do know that these tips should help you to have a successful and fun trip scooping up the best Black Friday sales. Manchester Designer Outlets are uniquely spaced out and unlike any other outlet center I have experienced. You can easily walk to different collections on stores and, on the way, stumble on some great scenic locations to take a break, snap a picture, and perhaps inventory your successful shopping. I can only imagine how enjoyable all this makes shopping on one of the busiest retail days of the year. Have I convinced you to take the trip yet?!
Ok, I know you're waiting with bated breath, so here are my top 5 tips on how to WIN Black Friday at Manchester Designer Outlets:
1. Check Out The Map
Knowing where you want to go, or better yet, discovering a new shop to visit will make good use of your time. Let's be honest, not all of you get as excited as I do for buying my kids' Christmas pajamas, but whether you're looking for pajamas or the latest Tumi laptop backpack here's the map you'll need to navigate you to your ideal shopping treasures.
2. Become A VIP
Don't worry. This doesn't entail a velvet rope and a list of names. Simply sign up online and get valuable coupons you can download from MDO. Plus, you'll be the first to know about big upcoming sales, if there's any week to be ahead of the curve, it's (yep, you guessed it) the week of Black Friday.
3. Make A List
Write down the people you want to buy gifts for. If you know stores they frequent, such as J. Crew, Theory, or BCBG Maxazria, jot those stores down next to their names so you keep them on your mind while browsing each of those places. Here are just a few fabulous finds that I managed to take home for a few good girls and boys on my holiday list:
4. Fuel Up
Coffee any morning is a must, but this great little place in town, The Spiral Press Cafe, will get you started off right with the perfect coffee and scrumptious treat to keep you sharp and on the lookout for the best Black Friday sales.
5. Enjoy Yourself
Get lost in the amazing sales and experience the joy of finding the perfect gift. And if that gift just happens to be the number one thing on your wishlist, don't be afraid to buy it for yourself, too. Just don't tell them that you got the same thing, because it was so affordable, AND you became a VIP, AND had a downloadable coupon on your smartphone, AND mapped out your entire shopping excursion in advance, AND finished all your shopping in one day at MDO because you had a total of three cappuccinos at the Spiral Press Cafe.
If you'd like to add me to your list, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a sheepskin throw from the Overland Sheepskin Company. Happy shopping!
