Gymboree Outlet recently released their version of the Bright Owl 2013 retail collection. Often times, the outlet versions tend to leave out many of the appliqués or additional details and use thinner, less substantial fabrics. However, I’ve heard that for this particular collection, the re-makes are done well with fewer tweaks than previous collections, including a few special made-for-outlet pieces that are great additions. This collection is actually so well done that it has been flying off the shelves, so if you are interested in buying these particular pieces, please call your outlet ahead of time to make sure they are in stock. I know I’ll have to be doing this as well since the outlets are a decent ways away. Don’t forget to bring a 20% off coupon with you. (Get one through signing up for their email subscribe list on the bottom of the homepage, Parents magazine, or using the Gymboree reward members only subscriber 20% coupon that was recently sent out by email because outlets ARE now accepting those coupons.)
Plus starting this Sunday, August 17th, all of you who may be from Connecticut may be interested to know, or most likely already know that it’s the beginning of tax free week. This is when clothing and shoes under $300 per item will be sales tax free. So as you can imagine, I’m especially excited and am gearing up for my “plan of attack” on how to spend the kids’ clothing budget for this month wisely.
I’m really hoping that the Gymboree Outlet will still have this outfit in stock:
The kid girl Bright Owl grey and yellow collection is also available, but those particular colors aren’t the best for us, so I was when I saw this purple and pink owl shirt from Kohl’s I was instantly drawn to it.
Hair Accessory: Gymboree Ribbon Streamer Pony Holder in Orchid
Sweatshirt: Naartjie Kids Lace Trimmed Stretch Fleece Hoodie in Ibis
Top: Kohl’s Jumping Beans Owl Tee
Tank: Old Navy Girls Rib-Knit Tank in Brink Pink
Jeans: H&M Slim Jeans
Shoes: H&M Patterned Sneakers in Gray
