There are lots of great outlet stores in Orlando, but one stands head and shoulders above the rest: The Victoria’s Secret Outlet at Premium Outlets Orlando. There are only a few Victoria’s Secret outlets in the US, and this is the only one in Florida. They carry clothing, lingerie, bath and body, and other overstocks from the Victoria’s Secret catalogs, and from their retail stores. What makes this store better than all of the rest is the flat pricing system. They charge the same amount for almost everything in the store, regardless of the item’s retail price. Usually it’s 2 items for $15 but sometimes it’s even cheaper, they change it pretty frequently. This means that you can go through the racks and anything you find will be $7.50, even if the price tag shows $198!
I have been shopping this store for about two years, since it opened, and have scored some spectacular deals. $198 robes made of 100% cashmere, $99 evening dresses, $89 jeans, $79 silk pajamas, all for $7.50 each! It’s a true treasure hunt, you’ll want to dig through each of the racks since you never know what you’ll find. The 2 for $15 offer applies to all clothing, which is a mix of sleepwear, separates, and dresses. They usually have a good selection of work-appropriate clothing like their popular Christie pants and blazers.
Other sections in the store have different pricing: the bras are usually flat-priced at $10 to $15, which can be a great deal on the newer, fancy models that run for around $50 in the stores. The swimwear is usually 2 for $15, and they sometimes have a huge selection of bikinis and coverups, so it’s worth checking out.
There is a big room full of Victoria’s Secret PINK clothing, and it sometimes is included in the flat price sales, though it usually is priced at about 60% off retail. It’s a great place to buy PINK jeans, they have a really good selection of them. The bath and body section includes lots of fragrance and cosmetics as well, and they are usually 50% to 75% off retail, but check out the 5 for $5 bin for some great deals. They have $2.99 bins full of accessories like cashmere slippers and socks, Havainas flip-flops, and cozy scarves.
It’s not just Victoria’s Secret brand merchandise, since they clear out anything that they carry in the catalogs,including designer goods. I have found Ugg boots for $19, Betsey Johnson dresses for $5, and DKNY tankinis for $10. It’s great for stocking up on Christmas gifts, you can easily leave with a bag full of amazing presents for under $100.
The store gets new stock in on Wednesday and Friday mornings, and sometimes more often in the busy season. It is often PACKED with shoppers, and can have some pretty long lines, so the best way to get your pick of the merchandise is to arrive at 10am when the mall opens. Next time you’re shopping in Orlando, make sure to check out the Victoria’s Secret outlet, my pick for the best store for designer bargains in our ‘magical’ city.
