Hi, I'm not sure whether this should be under the Coach Outlet stickie, so I'm putting it here...just wanted to update the Coach fans out there about what's out and what's coming out at the outlets! First of all, here's a quick update on good sale items that I found: -all of the pastel optic line (the signature line that featured the bee embellishments) is an extra 40% off, a good deal if you like the line -all of the Coach Hamptons weekend bags from this summer are also 40% off, the totes were coming up at about $65, a steal! They were in black, white, and tan. -the outlet patchwork bags for this summer were on sale and so were a lot of tye dye signature pieces. The bags in the tye dye collection were white and gold and ranged from about $100-$150, and the patchwork bags were all around $200 Here's an update on the outlet bag lines: -Coach currently has three outlet-only bag lines out on the floor. One is a variation on Coach's brown patchwork poppy bags from a few years back. I'm not a big fan, the original bags were much nicer (IMO). The next is a variation on last year's Chelsea bags, done in a nappa leather. Nice colors for fall, I remember a moss green, a dark brown, a plum, and a black. The third and best IMO is a repeat of Coach's pocket satchels from last year, done in deep brown leather, brown signature (really nice), white, beige suede, and mauve suede. The pocket satchel is such a nice bag, and all the colors were beautiful for fall. The manager said that the line will go on sale over Labor Day weekend if anyone is interested! -The manager showed me a few bags to "preview" Coach's upcoming outlet lines. Coach is putting out a smaller version of last year's Hamptons Carryall in black, it's really cute! I may go back for one, I love my big Carryall. The line also includes the wedge-shaped demis that Coach always stocks in red, black, deep brown, and teal. Cute so far, but THEN I saw the monstrousity!! The big outlet line for late fall will feature the Coach Pleated Hobo, which is a beautiful bag, done in the WORST leather I've ever seen on a Coach bag ! It was shiny like plastic and really thin, it was GROSS. I was so disappointed because I love that bag. The manager whipped out a Coach Pleated Hobo that had been transferred from a full-price store so I could compare, and there's just no comparison at all. The full price bag was gorgeous (so gorgeous that I bought it ), and the outlet bag was yuck, even the manager thought so. So be careful if you're planning on picking up a Coach Pleated Hobo on eBay, do it now before the gross ones come onto the market. Also, in an interesting new development, Coach will be giving out dustbags with their outlet-only bags. The outlet dustbags are white with brown drawstrings and a brown font. Just thought I'd let ya know, if I had seen one on eBay I would have assumed it was a fake!
