Back to School Shopping at Edinburgh Outlet Mall

Edinburgh-Premium-Outlets Each year, my sisters, mom, and I hit the Edinburgh Outlet Mall with our kids in early August. This year, we had to shop a little earlier than usual and were a bit ahead of the usual sales. We still found plenty of awesome deals, and there are even more starting this week.

We picked up $10 denim at The Children’s Place, scored free deals on Fox shirts, and mega clearance deals at Aeropostale. The kids are all set for the first day of school, but we still have 9 days to go. I know several Indianapolis area schools are already in session, but the outlet mall can also get you setup for fall clothes and holiday shopping.

If you’re still looking for a few back to school bargains, here are some tips for scoring great deals at the outlet mall and beyond:


  • Take an inventory of what you already have. It’s not necessary to buy all new clothes if there’s still plenty that fits.
  • Keep a list of sizes, favorite styles, and current colors so you can easily find coordinating pieces to go with what is already in the closet.
  • Shop with a friend and split bogo bargains. My son and nephew each selected two shirts in the Fox buy three, get one free deal.
  • Plan ahead with clearance sales and doorbusters. The kids each bought two pair of jeans for fall and a couple hoodies on clearance, so they’re still in good shape when the weather cools.
  • Pair awesome outlet bargains with store coupons. We saved even more when I found a Children’s Place email with a coupon for 30% off our purchase.
