Ladies of the DMV, the time has come. Tomorrow August 20th Bloomingdale's first ever outlet will open in Potomac Mills. After 150 years since the company's inception, they finally join the ranks of other retailers like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Saks.
Bloomingdale's outlet stores will offer a range of apparel and accessories including women's ready-to-wear, men's, children's, women's shoes, fashion accessories, jewelry, handbags, and intimate apparel.
Aside from Potomac Mills in Virgina, there are 3 other outlets that will be opening. They are:
I'm very anxious to get there and see all that they have to offer. I really hope that it won't be a disappointment. I would be absolutely devastated if the first Bloomingdale's outlet is a flop, especially since its near the nation's capital. It's bad enough we have to watch The Real Housewives of DC and all its tom foolery. Definitely not the representation we need...but I have digressed.
Ladies...and gents... if you are in the area and have a chance to go please do! Keep me updated on your thoughts. If you go there this weekend talk to me on twitter and let me know what you think! http://www.twitter.com/mycouturelounge
Couture Fact: Did you know that Bloomingdale's was the first store to have a designer shopping bag? Back in 1961 they revealed their first designer shopping bag which is now iconic. They understood that its not only what you purchase but what you bring it home in. Such a couture concept.
