I am going to Branson in 3 weeks. Is the outlet there worth going to? I am not looking for anything but accessories. Has anyone here been to that outlet and if so what was your experience?
TIA for any info!

Branson is the closest outlet to me and I tend to have pretty good luck there, so I'd say if you're visiting you should check it out. I've had several great finds at that location in the last 6 months, including 2 legacy shoulder bags, a large ergo tote, bleecker shopper, bleecker large and small flap, bleecker capacity wristlets and the legacy flap bag. They also usually have a good selection of accessories and the SA's are very nice. The best time to go is during the week in the mornings. Weekends are crazy and the stock gets picked over pretty fast. Good luck! :tup:

If you're going to be in Branson anyway, I would say definitely check it out. I have been to that Coach outlet only once and didn't have any luck. But, that doesn't mean it's not still worth checking out. The next time I'm in Branson, I will still go.

The worst part about the Branson outlet is just trying to find it. The mall that it's in is right across from the Andy Williams Theater pretty much in the center of the Branson "strip" but you can't actually see the mall from the road. The main highway is such a sea of signs and buildings and billboards that the sign for the mall gets almost lost in the crush, and the mall is at the bottom of the hill that most of the theaters nearby are on. So to get to the mall you have to turn in right when you see the sign, go to the back of the parking lot and then you'll see the hill you have to drive down (that has to be fun during a snowstorm!). Coach is all the way to the left. It's probably the only mall I've ever been to that doesn't have it's own traffic light.

But the store is pretty big and the SA's are really nice. It's definitely worth looking for.

Thanks..Soonerch, Alisanolan, Hyacinth & Bethie for the info. :tup: That would be fantastic if I could find some legacy leather. Plus if it snows, I could slide down the hill right into the coach outlet store. :biggrin:
My next adventure after this trip, will probably be to Philadelphia and I will definitely need every ones coach help for that trip in Oct.

Branson's in the far SW corner of Missouri, in the Ozarks and surrounded by the Mark Twain National Forest. It's beautiful country and well worth a trip even if you're not into Country & Western music. It's also a major recreation and vacation area with plenty of lakes, caves and resorts, and lots of whoopie-doo uphill and downhill driving for those who like that kind of thing. Not a place for Flatlanders or the faint-of-heart, especially in winter.

Have to admit though, the town itself is a bit too commercial for my taste, especially along the main street - everywhere you look all you see is billboards. :sad:

Hyacinth... I not really a country music fan but I love caves and coach so maybe I can overlook those billboards. What a bummer to run the beauty of the Ozarks with all that commercialism. We usually go to the Rockies every summer to get out of the heat but I convinced my DH we needed to try out Branson. I guess I was secretly wanting to be near a coach outlet.
I am a flatlander but since I usually spend each summer in the mountains, I do know how to drive with at least one eye open. :sweatdrop:
I can hardly wait to check out the coach outlet and see what treasures they may have there. :yahoo:

I'm not sure about the Branson outlet but the one in Gilroy has the Francine in teal (oh I want her,) @ 20% off, french purses in teal, mohagony and white 20% off of $99.

They also had I think it was 30% off scareves, 40% of sunny's and other jewelry.

Do all outlet's get some of the same bags at the same time?

Considering I have NEVER been to a Coach outlet, it's not that I'm an expert on a good or bad outlet! What I mean is good selection: in particular Legacy? My family is thinking of taking a vacation there during Fall Break (mid October).

I was recently there this weekend. They have some pretty good deals. I got a hamptons tote for $50. They had some wristlets for $12, which went fast. They had an additional 50%, 40%, 30%, and 20%. I found that during the morning the store was packed but towards the middle of the day there wasnt much of a crowd.

Ok, thanks. I'm hoping a Coach outlet is all I have envisioned it to be -- heaven??? A place I can buy 2-3 bags for the price I pay for one in the boutiques?

I wouldn't admit it to my husband (although he probably knows), buy I'm trying to find a vacation destination that has a Coach outlet located in the same city!
