If you're the type that likes to take it easy on Memorial Day weekend, well, this post isn't for you. A release just landed in the Racked Inbox regarding the big sales planned for the Desert Hills Premium Outlets and the Camarillo Premium Outlets Friday, May 25th through Monday, May 28th. Each will be taking an additional 25 to 65% off already-discounted merch for the weekend.
For those unfamiliar with Desert Hills, it's a compound located on the way from LA to more deserty destinations like Palm Springs. The Camarillo Outlets, on the other hand, are right off the 101 in Camarillo, which is at least an hour drive northwest of the city. They boast many of the same anchor stores, including Barneys NY, Last Call by Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, but Desert Hills has a somewhat cooler and tonier selection of smaller shops like Burberry, Diane Von Furstenberg, James Perse, Marni, Gucci, Prada and new additions AllSaints Spitalfields and Versace.
Though the full list of additional discounts hasn't been released, we do have a few examples of what the markdowns will look like at both. You can sign up to be a VIP shopper here for coupons to use on top of these sales.
