The Allen premium outlets are a great thing to have so close. They're approximately 20-30 minutes outside of Dallas, so it is a bit of a trip. My favorite stores include Banana Republic, the Llegs/Hanes outlet, Nine West, Bombay, and the Mikasa and Crate and Barrel outlets. Be sure to look online for the 20% off a single item coupons! Theyre usually printable off of the website, but you sometimes have to physically pick them up at the customer service desk at the outlets. Either way, its worth it.
