Our Favorite Toys for Gift Giving!

Happy holidays! I can’t believe we’re in the middle of Hanukkah and Christmas is just weeks away. The pressure is on to get everything done in just a short amount of time and since we’re walking the centers every day, the Outlets of Colorado are here to help. We have found some great toy/games that we can recommend (because we played with them) for this holiday season. Here are a few we tested and loved:

Twilight Scene It? DVD game: Completely fun especially since all of our testers have seen the movies, read the books and had determined whether they were on team Jacob or team Edward (it was an even draw between Jacob and Edwards….so it became a fairly competitive afternoon). The Scene it?Twilight Deluxe Edition features hundreds of heart-stopping clips, trivia questions, and on-screen puzzles from the Twilight movie phenomenon! The game will challenge your observation, memory, and puzzle-solving skills while reliving your favorite Twilight movie moments. We loved playing this game!

Disney/Pixar Toy Story 3 Talking 13″ U-Command Buzz Lightyear by Thinkway Toys. What we liked with this toy is that Buzz talks in his original character voice. He has over 70 phrases and he shows off with music and dance steps from the movie. You can move Buzz with his wireless, infra-red controller and use the dual joysticks to send Buzz forward, backward or into a 360-degree spin. There are over 1,000 possible action combinations you can do so it’s super fun and always new.

If you have a Wii console we had a ton of fun playing Sean White’s Snowboard and Deal or No Deal. Sean’s White’s Snowboard was fun, totally cool graphics, and a tough game especially if was determined by other testers that you have no sense of balance (oh, and I’m not bitter). We thought the Deal or No Deal Wii was just plain fun.  All the testers joined in the strategy to outsmart the banker and find the briefcase with the million dollars. And if you didn’t win the big bucks (one game I ended up with $10) it was okay….hello, it’s just a game!

We’ve got plenty more ideas on toys and games to give for kids of all ages. If you need other ideas about what to get this Christmas, post who you’re shopping for with some info on the Facebook pages of Outlets at Castle Rock, Outlets at Loveland, or Outlets at Silverthorne and we’ll help you find the right gift at a great price!

The Cure for Spring Fever!

The “must have” pieces to add to your wardrobe!

Even though the weather report is predicting almost 10 inches of snow by tomorrow (in the great Denver metro area) we can still catch spring fever. It’s getting warmer and it’s staying light out just a wee bit longer. I’ll admit it, I have Spring Fever. If you do, then I’ve found the cure. Here are some of the key fashion pieces you need to add to your wardrobe.

Bright Colors: Add a punch of color. Tones ranging from citrus to neon are the hottest shades for shoes, belts, and bags.

Day Clutches: Don’t carry a big bag this spring.

Yellow and Cobalt: High-voltage colors are the colors to find for your wardrobe. They look great with gold jewelry to add warmth and balance to these unexpected colors.

Silver: The metallic color of the season. There are fabulous dresses and accessories in the hot metallic shade. Don’t discount gold or bronze – they are still chic, too.

Cut-Out Wedges: Platform wedges are still in, yeah!

Spring Shopping

I cannot get over the deals at the Outlet Malls. Every retailer seems to be having a sale. Love that. It’s nice to see great merchandise discounted and then put on sale. I love all the colors being shown for this spring. I wanted to share with you a few events that you need to know about. If you’re intersted…become a FAN at either (or both) the Outlets of Colorado or the Outlets at Castle Rock’s Facebook page and you will get additional savings on fabulous deals.

CALVIN KLEIN: they are having a Friends & Family Event March 18th to 21st. You can receive an additional 30% off your purchases. Kid you not! This is a great deal. I was just in their location in Silverthorne (and there is one in Castle Rock) and they had amazing merchandise for both men and women.

The Bass, IZOD, and VanHeusen are also hosting a Friends & Family Event March 18th to 21st. You can take an additional 30% off everything.

This is just one (of the many) reasons why I shop Outlet malls. I love to get the latest and greatest fashion items at an amazing discount and then on sale.

See you out shopping (and saving)!

Great Fashion Shouldn’t Cost that Much.

I live and breathe fashion. Every day I’m out at one of the Outlets of Colorado – Outlets at Castle Rock, Loveland, or Silverthorne and I see great deals and wonder why anyone would ever shop retail when you can find the same great look and designer brands at an outlet mall for practically free.

Here are some of the “wow” deals that I found recently that I just had to blog about.

Wilson’s Leather has a zebra print zipper trench jacket is hot. It is one of my favorite items I’ve found. It’s a bold fashion statement that can be worn throughout the year. It looks great over blacks, reds, yellow, and the exciting new bright colors coming out this spring. We price shopped at the department stores, and this same style and print would cost you up to $180, at the Outlets you only pay $54. Love that! Wilson’s Leathers is at all three outlet locations.

Spring 2010 is all about color. I found this fabulous sweater, cool worn jeans, and accessories at RUE 21. The polka dot cardigan paired with the distressed jeans, shoes, belt, scarf and the fabulous jewels makes a great statement. What makes this outfit an even better statement is that at the mall up the street we could buy all of this for $195.99 and at the Outlets we can purchase the entire ensemble at RUE 21 for $85.81. 

You know I can’t forget the men. I found this great (hot) look at Rue 21 too. I put together a graphic tee, checkered shirt, distressed jeans, and very cool checkered tennis shoes and shades for $60.95. I went out to the mall and I would have had to spend $170 bucks to get the same look. Rue 21 is at all three outlet malls.

As for the Carhartt Jacket (Maximillian is showing) was $60 and at the mall it was $150. This jacket (if interested) can be purchased at the Workwear store located at Outlets at Loveland.

To see these fashions and few more amazing outfits I have found, join me at the Outlets at Castle Rock on Saturday, February 27th at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm, in the food court. I’ll be joined by Georgia Benjou, 5280’s Fashion Advisor, as they host “Bring on the Vogue” fashion show. We will showcase all of the designer deals we’ve been talking about from Guess, Off Fifth, Banana Republic, Rue 21, Osh Kosh, and Nike (to name a few).  Oh, and we will be giving away over $5, 280 they’re giving away prizes during the three fashion shows. You have a chance to win a 5280 gift basket worth over $900 in prizes and one of 10 gift bags given away at each show with over $145 in goodies. The only catch, you must be present to win. So, I’m personally inviting you to be there!

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas!

Outlets at Castle Rock, Loveland & Silverthorne

Hello, Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. No pressure, just a friendly reminder that tomorrow is a special day and we’d hate to see you miss out on an opportunity to show your love to that special Valentine. Here are some last minute gift ideas that would make any Valentine, happy. 

  • Chocolate: Okay, who doesn’t love it? You can get a box of chocolate or better yet, candied apple dipped in chocolate. You can also bring in your wine decanter at our local Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory store and they will dip it in chocolate.
  • For people who love the color Pink: Pink is a hot color right now and will be a key color for spring 2010. A great scarf adds a little pink to any outfit. The best scarf we found was at Tommy Hilfiger’s Outlet. It’s a fabulous pink and white scarf regularly $40.00 now $19.99 (hurry, limited supply).
  • Those into Leather: Kenneth Cole has a beautiful sweetheart pink leather jacket. Wilson Leather Outlet has huge deals on leather and fabric coats, gloves, and accessories.
  • For Women: Cole Hahn has teamed up with Nike to create a high heel that is stylish and comfortable. Cole Haan has launched a Nike Air collection utilizes Nike Zoom air bag technology to cushion the ball and heel of the foot. By lining the interior of these Cole Haan Nike Air heels with strategically placed Nike Zoom air bags, the stress and pain caused by the weight transfer from the raised heel to the toe is counterbalanced.
  •  The gift that will tug on a person’s heart: Help the country of Haiti as they recover from the tragic earthquake this past January. Outlets of Colorado, in conjunction with its Parent Company and their sister Outlet malls across the US have joined forces with the American Red Cross to help raise funds for Haiti.
