How I Get Kate Spade For Cheap: My Kate Spade Outlet Haul

May 7, 2014

If you love Kate Spade as much as I do, you need to read how I get all my Kate Spade items for cheap!

I have been swooning over Kate Spade for awhile.  Her designs have a vintage, classic aesthetic while looking perfectly placed in this decade.  I love the colors, the textures and pretty much everything aside from the price tag.  This is exactly why I was so excited to find out that Kate Spade has a chain of outlet stores!  If you can’t wait for the next flash sale on Hautelook or Zulily (where I’ve been able to find Coach, Michael Kors) it might be time to head to the outlet!

Most of the time, the outlet carries outlet specific pieces, but there’s a clearance section as well.  When I went, I shopped the clearance section, which had an additional 20% off during Easter weekend.  For the full priced items- the iPhone case and the scarf, you can use a student discount, so be sure to take advantage of it if you’re a student!

This scarf is my favorite- it’s a map of southern California and I ADORE it. It’s got my old haunts back home, but it doesn’t list my hometown (which is super small).  Since we’re getting married in Los Angeles, and it’s a Route 66 theme I am wondering if this would come in handy for our engagement session.

These mittens were on clearance for $14.40 and will come in handy next winter since I was woefully under prepared this year for the polar vortex. Lady or Shady? Which should I be? 😉

So, what was the damage?  $469.86 for four bags, a wallet, scarf, iPhone case and mittens from Kate Spade.  If you’re  a student, be sure to bring your student ID or shop on a holiday weekend when there are going to be more sales!

I was super happy with our haul.  This was my first outlet trip in ages upon ages.  Outlet stores are an interesting tactic by brands- sometimes the garments and items aren’t as high quality as their full priced counterparts, but I didn’t find a huge difference in quality with these outlet pieces.

You can tell if an item was made specifically for outlet sale since it will say it on the tag or you find full size runs or a hefty inventory of the product.  Actual items that are left over from the main stores or lines will be sprinkled in the store (with only a few to choose from) or will have a few markdowns on the tags (like sharpie lines on the tags).  Again, I don’t usually notice a huge difference in most lines (aside from the GAP where their Outlet stores sometimes really aren’t that great of a deal) but items like Kate Spade and Betsey Johnson, they’ll make pieces just for outlets and sale stores like TJMaxx and Nordstrom Rack.

Other Ways To Save On Kate Spade Without An Outlet:

If you don’t live near an outlet store, you can still get great deals directly from the Kate Spade site during flash sales!

Additionally, I’ve snagged great deals on Kate Spade bags, dresses and accessories at HauteLook and Zulily.
