Last week I was invited to a sneak peek of the holiday fashions and gift trends at Grapevine Mills. Grapevine Mills, located in Grapevine, TX is the largest outlet mall in North Texas. They have begun a renovation on the mall which will be finished next year, which will give it a new sleek look, befitting many of the upscale retailers that are in the mall.
Our evening began in Neiman Marcus Last Call, where we were wined and dined thanks to the Rainforest Café.
Rainforest Café, located in the mall right by Neiman Marcus Last Call, is a ‘Wild Place to Shop and Eat.’ You may be familiar with it if you’ve ever dined in Downtown Disney or other tourist destinations. It is a fun place to have a meal, where kids and adults alike enjoy the jungle atmosphere and ‘entertainment.’ The portions are large and filling and the food has always been good whenever we’ve gone there to eat, just as it was for this blogger event.
Some of the trends this holiday sesaon are the color green and long sweaters. You can see the punch of green in the above pants – a gorgeous way to be comfortable yet still dressed up and festive at a holiday party. The longer sweaters are perfect to pair with leggings, and the monchrome with a pattern plus the shorter skirt is a winning outfit with a pair of long or short boots.
Some gift giving ideas were shown to us as well, leather bags for both women and men, Kendra Scott jewelry, gourmet snacks and bold, bright colored socks for the guys!
Then we moved on into the mall to visit a couple of the other stores. Much to my delight the first stop was the new Vera Bradley Outlet. I admit I’m a bit obsessed with that store and the bags and accessories in it!
What?! Can you believe those discounts?! Unbelievable. And you’ll find some discontinued patterns here as well.
Then we headed over to Coach to see the selection of handbags, accessories and outwear that they have for this season. And before you think Coach is a brand that is completely out of your wallet’s reach…they do have Clearance there as well!
We also visited the brand new Steve Madden store. Some fantastic deals are to be had here in all sizes!
The evening was a lot of fun and they even sent us home with some accessories, samples and gift cards in order to find some fashion deals for ourselves or to use for holiday gifts.
I’m excited for the chance to do the bulk of my holiday shopping at Grapevine Mills this year. In addition to the many deals the stores in the mall have on a day to day basis, you’re going to find some extraordinary ones starting with Black Friday and leading up until the New Year. Visit Grapevine Mills online to see all the retailers located within the complex and to start planning your ‘game plan’ for getting the most bang for your buck this holiday season.
