Disclosure: This Bloggers Day Out – The Outlets of Little Rock post was sponsored by The Outlets of Little Rock. While I was provided incentives for participating in this event, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Last weekend, I joined some fellow bloggers for The Outlets of Little Rock for a leisure afternoon of girl talk, treats, and shopping. I had such a fun time seeing other local bloggers that I hadn’t seen in awhile and learning more in-depth information about The Outlets of Little Rock. I got to spend time with Michelle from The Panama Mama, Tiffany from Single Mommy Warrior, and Courtney from Aduke Schulist.
Here are a few of my big takeaways from the day:
- The Outlets of Little Rock, which opened on October 15, 2016, has gained 12 new stores since the opening with a grand total of 65 stores at the moment.
- A G&C is set to open up in May.
- A huge (read…20,000 square feet!) H&M store is set to open up around the holidays at the end of the year.
- Corky’s Shoes carries mommy-and-me coordinating shoes! Y’all! This is such an exciting discovery for me!
5. Le Crouset (pronounced “luh CREW-zay”) refers to a moulded cauldron in French. Le Crouset is one of those stores which speaks my language because of the bright and cheery colors of the products. The company is adding a pop of purple to its colorful line this spring.
6. The Outlets of Little Rock have several upcoming activities for children and for adults. Things on the line up include an Easter Bunny social at TCBY, a food truck festival on April 22 (noon to 6 p.m.), a kid-focused morning event with pancakes and a movie, and other activities scheduled for certain holidays such as Mother’s Day and Memorial Day.
7. All jerky from The Beef Jerky Outlet is made from U.S. raised cattle and game.
8. Tommy Hilfiger no longer offers outlet pricing online. If you want Hilfiger for the outlet pricing, you have to visit a brick-and-mortar. Also, Tommy Hilfiger will be introducing a home line to The Outlets of Little Rock store in 2018.
9. The friendly Starbucks employee taught us the proper way to drink coffee:
- Bring cup to nose
- Waft cup
- Slurp as loudly as possible
10. The Asics store will analyze your walk and teach you what kind of walker you are. I had no clue there were so many types of walkers! Apparently, I am a “supenate.”
11. And my favorite, favorite takeaway from the day had to come from our entertaining stop at Lindt Chocolate. Sam Gordon, the store manager of Lindt Chocolate at The Outlets of Little Rock, gives us a lesson on using all five senses for the best chocolate experience.
I was so mesmerized by this guy that I didn’t want to leave!
And to be totally honest, I also wanted to stick around for more chocolate samples. I still haven’t met a Lindt truffle I didn’t like!
