What's the best Outlet Shopping Deal you ever had?

TwitterMoms and Gap Outlet have teamed up to bring savers everywhere a great "SUMMER SAVINGS for YOU & Your Little Ones" discount, and to celebrate, they're inviting TwitterMoms members to share their Greatest Catch stories. No, I don't mean the slimy, fishy kind. I mean those great outlet deals that you stumbled on and couldn't believe you scored! I love outlet malls because I can get great brand name clothes and accessories at unbelievable prices. There's a great outlet mall about 50 miles from where I live, so every now and then (especially when relatives visit from the Philippines) I make the 45-minute drive over and spend the afternoon there (and when my aunts are the ones visiting, we usually stay until the place closes!).

Given the amount of time I spend shopping at US outlet malls, it's kind of strange that the best outlet deal I ever scored was in an outlet mall in the UK. My mother-in-law and I were strolling around an outlet mall near Swindon, a city about 90 miles west of London, when we saw people staggering out of the mall with gigantic Next shopping bags. Next is a popular UK clothing brand similar to Gap, and I love their clothes but like almost everything else in the UK, the prices are higher than comparable items in the US, so I usually have to restrain myself when I go into a Next store. Not that day -- the whole Next outlet store was on sale, with EVERYTHING selling for £4 or less! That's about $6.15! No wonder people were buying everything up. I went crazy. I bought beautiful cable-knit sweaters, toggle coats and suede skirts and a rain slicker for The Pea. The price tags said £12, £16, even £42, but I only paid £4. I bought leggings and blouses for myself, trousers for the boys. All £4 or less. I joined the hordes of people with giant plastic bags -- and giant smiles on their faces. What a deal!
