Few sales have the power to drag staunch New York City shoppers out to Jersey—Rent the Runway, for example—but according to Sample Sally, the deals at the Jersey Gardens outlet mall may be good enough to entice you to board a bus one state over.
Located in Elizabeth, NJ, the Mills at Jersey Gardens boasts everything from a Century 21 to a Lord & Taylor outlet, Saks Off Fifth, and evidently a new Ralph Lauren outlet that opened last year. It was there that the reporter found the best deals: 75% off the already-marked-down price, making cashmere sweaters from the Purple Label that were originally $995 down to just $50 ("I wanted to buy the whole store!" he says).
At Saks Off Fifth, expect to find Ferragamo shoes at an extra half-off, and 70% to 80% off men's sweaters by YSL, Versace, Dior, Michael Bastian and more, plus "nice women's bags" by Prada and Valentino, while Neiman Marcus Last Call currently has an extra half-off clearance, including Loro Piana, Zegna, and Brunello Cucinelli.
