Happy Holidays friends! Have you recovered from turkey day yet? My belly is full and I’m ready to get my shopping game on to score some mega Black Friday deals. Normally I’m not one to fight crowds, but this year the deals are too good to pass up at Chicago Premium Outlets. It’s time to get out of my comfort zone.

That means I’m throwing on my comfiest boots, warmest winter gear and headed out with the family to get our shop on for Black Friday! Not only will we be scoring major markdowns, we’ll be taking advantage of all the fun activities like strolling Santa, Spread the Love Photo Booth, outdoor ice skating rink where a DJ will be spinning tunes and entering for a chance to win awesome prizes.

Chicago Premium Outlets Black Friday

If you saw my Facebook announcement yesterday, I took a trip to Chicago Premium Outlets earlier this week to scope out all the Black Friday deals and snap some fun photos of my favorite finds for holiday gifts.

I love shopping at outlets but this was my first time at Chicago Premium Outlets. With featured retailers like Calvin Klein, Coach Outlet, Cole Haan Outlet, J.Crew Factory, LACOSTE, Michael Kors, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Salvatore Ferragamo, Theory, Vera Bradley – Why have I never been here before? Walking through the stores, it took all my energy to refrain from shopping for myself.

Just look at these jewel toned Marc Jacob handbags from Sax Off Fifth! And get this – up to 70% OFF the entire store throughout the weekend.

And who can resist this fabulous Michael Kors top?

My favorite stop was at the new Wellensteyn Outlet filled with the most beautiful down jackets for men and women. You can’t afford not to pop in, especially when all coats are 60% off retail prices.


For all my city friends getting to here is so easy when you hop on the shuttle from Union Station that takes you straight to Chicago Premium Outlets for $20. Learn more about transportation and plan your trip here.
