Fashion Ambush Colorado Springs Airport!

We’re getting ready for our second Fashion Ambush (Saturday, February 26th). This time Outlets of Colorado, Fox 21, and the Colorado Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau along with my fashion team from Outlets at Castle Rock, Outlets at Loveland, and Outlets at Silverthorne will be surprising an employee of the Colorado Springs Airport!

You can join in the fun and see the final results from our Fashion Ambush this Saturday 2/26). The fun starts at 10:00 am with a runway fashion show, prize wheel (and we’ve got some great prizes to give away), and a chance to be the first to see our fashion makeover before it is aired on Fox21.

Watch the fashion show, play the games and stay for lunch.

Outlets of Colorado will pay your parking for the first 30 people who come to the Colorado Springs Airport this Saturday to participate in this event. Bring in our parking ticket and come find us at the prize wheel and we’ll validate your parking for you!

Pantone 15-5519 is the color of the year! is one of my favorite websites. They always pick the hottest colors for the year and this year they announced PANTONE 15-5519 Turquoise, an inviting, luminous hue, as the Color of the Year for 2010.

How fabulous is that! Turquoise is very hot (well, actually a cool) color for the home and for your wardrobe. This spring it is one of the hottest colors you will find and I’m thrilled to let you all know that this color trend is a great one to find at the Outlets of Colorado. I’ve seen great shirts, belts, bags, skirts, and dresses….you name this color is going to be a great one for spring and will push right into summer.

Now you know. Get out there and shop.

Feeling Scarf Challenged?

We all know that scarves are a great accessory. Everyone’s wearing them – women, men, young or old, trendy teenagers, and even hip boys have added the scarf to their wardrobe closet (or if you’re my son, their wardrobe floor). But if you’re one of the millions who consider themselves scarf-challenged (which it’s okay to admit this, you are among friends), I found the perfect solution.

It’s called an “eternity scarf”, but others will call it a “circle scarf” or “infinity scarf”. Whatever, they all mean one thing, a scarf whose ends are connected in one long circle making it easy to throw on and stay warm, while you look hip. I Kid you not. This uni-gender circle of fabric has perfected the art of wearing a scarf. It can be found at most major retailers. We found a great selection, marked down to practically free, at Off 5th.

If your one of challenged who can’t loop a scarf perfectly, this is a must have. It can be worn as a scarf, hood, mask, or shawl. If you don’t believe me, watch my video.

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.

Peggy Ziglin’s Top 10 Tips for Outlet Shopping

"Outlet Shopping", "Discount Shopping"Outlet shopping can sometimes be a challenge (in a good way). There are so many stores to visit, so many racks of clothes to look through, shoes to try on, books to read, electronics to play with – you get where I’m going, right? There’s a lot to see and do when Outlet shopping is on your day’s agenda. To make the most out of your outlet shopping adventure we interviewed Peggy Ziglin, Regional Public Relations & Tourism Director for Outlets of Colorado (Castle Rock, Loveland, and Silverthorne). She gave us the following top 10 tips.

We tested “Peggy’s top 10 tips” and we are proud to report, they work.

  • Look before You Leave Home: Check out which stores are available online at your favorite Outlet shopping destination or pick up a brochure on your next visit. To see what stores are available at the Outlets of Colorado, click here.
  • Make your Store List: Determine which store(s) are of interest to you for your shopping journey.
  • Map it out: Once you know the stores you want to see, map them out. Put the stores logistically in sequence. This way you know your path of travel and you are making the most of your shopping day.
  • Determine your budget. She had to say it. Know your budget and do everything in your power to stick with it.
  • Time Matters: You can show up at 9:00 am but many stores don’t open until 10:00 am. To find out what time the Outlets of Colorado (Castle Rock, Loveland, and Silverthorne) open, click here.
  • Best Days to Shop: Most people shop on Saturday, but Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday’s are the best days to shop. Centers are historically slower on these days. You won’t have to fight the crowds and parking will be better.
  • Exercising, Done: It’s nice to multi-task. Next time you go shopping don’t park in the first spot you see (closest to the coffee shop…that is what we did). Instead park in the outer parking lots and walk. You’ll be doing two things at once! Exercising, which will be good for your heart and your waistline, and shopping, which is good for your soul.
  • Dress Wisely: Fashion doesn’t have to hurt when outlet shopping. Wear layered clothing and comfortable shoes. For the diehard shopper, bring a power treat and water bottle, for everyone else, just plan on stopping for lunch and/or a snack when hungry.
  • Customer Service is your Friend: Before you start your day of shopping, stop by the customer service center. They have updates on specials, discounts, and have a savings card which is FREE and offers you great discounts many people don’t know about.
  • Savings Card: Get one (see last bullet point). Study what each specific store offers and highlight the stores you plan to visit. You’ll be surprised how much money you can save when you use your Outlets of Colorado Savings’ Card. To learn more about it, click here.
