Died and Gone to Shopper's Heaven
Nestled at the base of the Catskills just 45 miles from NYC is a slice of shopper's paradise known as Woodbury Commons. Normally when we talk about budget fashion and good deals we're referring to clearance sales at the Gap, but when you want something more upscale and you don't have the dough to shop at Barney's, we recommend Woodbury Commons outlet mall (which, by the way, has a Barney's Warehouse). This outdoor shopping center has over 200 stores, including Coach, Brooks Brothers, Burberry, Valentino, Versace, and Kate Spade, as well as home stores like Williams-Sonoma and electronics stores such as Sony. We saw Brooks Brothers suits that normally retail at over $500 for less than $300, Burberry ties that retail at $115 marked down to $30, and Ferragamo shoes at 50% off retail.
