If you're a fan of LF's epic storewide sales and legendary warehouse sales, now you can enjoy its generous discounts year-round. Last week, the trendy retailer quietly opened an outlet store at 7714 Melrose Ave, just a few doors down from American Apparel. We stopped by yesterday and can confirm that the racks and tables are filled with summer essentials, and pricing is crazy-good: nothing is over $45.
Staffers tell us that new shipments will be unleashed weekly, and the most popular buys are the vintage denim shorts ($24), dresses and playsuits ($24), and camisoles ($16). There are also incredible statement sandals and booties ($45), boho jewelry ($10), soft shorts and skirts ($16), jeans ($28), woven tops ($24), novelty tees ($12), bins of basics ($8). Although they don't have many options in size large, there are tons of offering in sizes XS through medium.
Although all sales are final and there are absolutely no exchanges or refunds allowed, there are dressing rooms in the back so you can try on everything before committing. Oh, and the LF Outlet is permanent, meaning its not a pop-up, meaning if you ever need some foolproof fashion and are pressed for both time and money, run here.
LF Outlet is open Monday through Saturday from 10am to 7pm, and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.
