Every November, when your spouse heads off to set up camp for Opening Weekend hunting, you grab your trusty credit card and a few of your closest friends to set up a stylish little camp of your own - at Birch Run Premium Outlets' Deer Widows Weekend. But, we get it. November is an awfully long time away, and you need another great excuse to break the winter blahs and get out with your best girlfriends - and Birch Run Premium Outlets' Girlfriends Weekend 2016 (this April 8-10) is just the reason you've been waiting for.
Luckily, we're here to arm you with 9 Quick Tips For Staking Out The Mega-savings At The NEW Birch Run Girlfriends Weekend. And we're sure they'll leave you yelling "See you next week, honey!" faster than you can pack your purse.
Shop Tip #1
Call in your girl squad A-team. Only your most tried and true shopping partners will do for the all-out, all-day, all-weekend extravaganza that is the new Birch Run Girlfriends Weekend. So don't bring that friend who's notorious for needing a nap after just two stores. Bring your fearless, tireless, limitless lady pack and get ready to snag some serious savings, laugh your way to an almost-there ab workout, and make some incredible memories, right here at Birch Run Premium Outlets.
Shop Tip #2
Pack light (or bring an extra suitcase). You will be going home with some serious savings, and you're going to need a place to put it all. So call your friend with the boat-sized SUV and bring extra packing provisions - you'll thank yourself later. After all, you may want to scout the season's first swimsuits, or just work on building up your spring wardrobe. Chicos, Eddie Bauer, Ann Taylor, Loft, J. Crew, The North Face, Under Armour, Old Navy, and Polo Ralph Lauren are all offering over-the-top savings exclusively for Girlfriends Weekend (but we recommend you check out the full list of stores to see and shop while you're here, too!)
Shop Tip #3
Come hungry, and come a day early! When you do, you'll enjoy a complimentary Chocolate Tasting Event from 6-8pm on Friday, April 8 (and a great night's sleep before your first big day of shopping!) The next morning, skip that extra half hour of primping and get a head start on the experience with Deals & Donuts at the Birch Run Premium Outlets Information Center (located in Section F) on Saturday, April 9. Here, you'll sip on free coffee, indulge with a donut, and get in on the Girlfriends Guide To Savings Reception (lasting until Noon). You'll also be fueled up, fully caffeinated, and ready-to-go when the outlet stores open at 10 am!
Shop Tip #4
Rest your bones! With all the marathon shopping you're about to take on, even the most seasoned shoppers will need a little break. So, relax and recharge in the afternoon with a pit stop at the Information Center (located in Section F) between Noon & 3 pm on Saturday, April 9. Here, you'll be pampered with a complimentary professional chair massage (among other treats!)
Shop Tip #5
While your wardrobe gets a makeover, you can get a makeunder! bareMinerals by bareEscentuals will be offering complimentary in-store makeunders to our Girlfriends Weekend guests all day long on Saturday, April 9, where you can recharge your beauty and skincare regimen with new products and additional savings. You'll also get a free gift of some favorite beauty basics with your purchase! Nearby Harry & David and Organic World Spice Market will also be offering exclusive discounts and experiences, so be sure to check back later for more details!
Shop Tip #6
Shop like royalty, without the luxury pricetag. The best of both worlds come together for Girlfriends Weekend on Saturday, April 9, when you'll enjoy the luxury of complimentary limo service to and from your hotel as well as throughout Birch Run Premium Outlets, from 11am - 5pm. Head getting bigger, anyone? Start practicing your celebrity sunroof wave now. You're going to need it as you get carted like royalty from store to store and dropped off curbside, in ultimate, swanky style.
Shop Tip #7
Grease the wheels! Who doesn't like an all-day drink special? Get ready to gush over all the deals you've snagged with lunch & cocktails at the on-site UNOs Chicago Grill. Worried the midday foray into cocktail hour might make you sleepy? Save the rendezvous with the girls at UNOs for the evening, where you can all meet up at days-end to compare savings and swap style tips!
Shop Tip #8
Sometime during this all-out shop-fest, be sure to round up your receipts and take them to the Birch Run Premium Outlets Information Center in Section F (and get there before Sunday at noon!). For every $100 you spent during Girlfriends Weekend, you'll get 1 entry slip into a drawing for a $500 Visa Gift Card and other great prizes from Premium Outlets retailers! The drawing takes place at noon on Sunday, April 10 (but you need not be present to win!)
