TANGER SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
I went to the Tanger Outlets Phoenix/Glendale location last Friday after work and shopped between 5 and 8PM (closing time). I always enjoy the friendly greetings at Shopper Services (where anyone can become a TangerClub Member)! The Tanger Outlets continue to welcome their visitors with a well-maintained outdoor space and all of the best stores! Like my shopping trip back in July, shopping during COVID-19 felt great. They continue to take extra safety measures like asking all shoppers & employees to wear a face covering; providing hand sanitizer in their stores and inserting shields at check-outs; marking how to shop with social distancing; and posting signs for their customers to stay well-informed all around their shopping center.
MY TIPS FOR OUTLET SHOPPING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON
- Check Tanger Outlets website to see the promotions or special offers currently available. The whole month of November has Black Friday prices in every store!
- Become a Tanger Club Member! Stop in at Shopper Services, and they’ll let you know all of the perks that come with it. You can download the Tanger app, and upload your receipts to earn points toward rewards and more!
- Shop weekdays during early opening hours or right before closing to avoid the crowds.
- Go to popular brands first (like Lululemon, Coach, Kate Spade, etc.) to get on their waiting list, or to get in line to beat the crowds.
- If you’re struggling with finding someone a gift this holiday season, keep in mind that a Tanger gift card would be a perfect gift for anyone with their wide selection of brands and stores!
- Try Virtual Shopping with Tanger if you’re not near a Tanger location, or not quite ready to shop in stores yet. You just fill out a form about yourself and explore your shopping/brand preferences to connect you to a virtual shopper. Then, work with your shopper to decide whether to pick up your items curbside, or have them delivered.
MY TANGER FINDS: HOLIDAY GIFTS
On this trip to the outlets, I was eager find some good gifts for the girls in my life (mom, sisters, SIL, friends…). I stopped in Express Factory Outlet first because I know they always have beautiful sweaters, and I have heard that they have a great selection of beanies, cozy socks, shoes, and other great gift ideas, too. It did not disappoint! Look at the SHOES – they were definitely my favorite find! (And that COAT is stunning, right?!)
Another place that had fun girlie gifts that did not disappoint was Aerie! I could not get over their selection of cozy scarves, fuzzy slippers, and lacey bralettes. The slippers were the best find here!
MY TANGER FINDS: EARLY BLACK FRIDAY DEALS
I was also very eager to shop “Black Friday deals” since they’re running big sales early all month! My biggest goal with Black Friday shopping this year was to find a trendy, casual winter coat. It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten one mostly because they tend to be so pricey. So, I went to Abercrombie & Fitch, and found a great “Black Friday” deal on a cute jacket!
My other fun “Black Friday” deal was snagging 2 of these sweatshirts at Aerie. I can picture these being dressed up for work or the holidays, or being dressing down for weekends and snuggling on the couch. I know these would make an amazing gift for the girls in your life, too! Look at all of the colors!
MY TANGER FINDS: TRY ON
ATHLEISURE FROM AERIE
The Aerie sweatshirts make a great weekend look, sporting event look, errands outfit, or something for an athleisure-lover to wear! Their whole store was 25% off.
CASUAL WITH AERIE AND EXPRESS
Throw them on with a pair of black pants, and you can wear it to work, too! The white mules were my Express Factory Outlet find for 40% off (plus my 20% coupon!), and I love how they look! So, here’s some outfit inspo for the upcoming holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s day…
DRESSED UP WITH AERIE AND A & F
Dress up with booties or knee high boots and a sweatshirt (left) that looks just as nice as the pretty sweater I found at A & F for 40% off, too (right)!
COZY WITH AERIE AND A & F
If you want cozy, snag these joggers at 40% off at A & F and a pair of slippers (25% off) at Aerie! They would make such perfect gifts, too!
WARM AND TRENDY WITH A & F
Here’s the Abercrombie & Fitch coat I found “in action” during our trip to Northern Arizona. It was perfect for the 35 degree temps and snow!

MY TANGER SAVINGS
The savings at each store was impressive as always! Not only did I shop major discounts in each store, but I used my TangerClub coupon book on top of that, and then logged my receipts in their app again to earn points toward my next reward level. Without the Black Friday prices and 20% off savings, I would’ve spent about $415! I was so excited to have saved roughly $175 by shopping for these 7 items (one being a nice winter coat!) at the Tanger Outlets!
Find or plan a visit to a location near YOU to save on your holiday gift shopping plus shop Black Friday sales early! And, a special THANK YOU to Tanger Outlets for hosting my shopping spree!
