With 180 stores, San Francisco Premium Outlets, located in Livermore,
takes some time to navigate. But when exploring, savvy shoppers can
find great deals on luxury lines. Options run from the trendy (Rag & Bone)
to traditional (Brooks Brothers), upscale (Barneys New York) to basic (Gap
Factory). And though the majority of shops lean high end, popular bargain
spots rub elbows with the grander brands.
Gems like Kate Spade supply color and sophistication in women’s
accessories and jewelry: From playful purses to signature watches, the store
provides a multitude of delightfully quirky options. Just a few steps away
is Burberry, where beautifully tailored coats line the walls and an array of
handbags shows off the brand’s iconic tartan. At Gucci, the glam factor is
evident in everything from ready-to-wear apparel to accessories; its chic
printed dresses and jackets are delectable.
If your taste tends toward expensive footwear, walk this way. Purchase
a sweet pair of Jimmy Choos and strut down the street like it’s your personal
runway. Or go for the eye-catching designs in bold colors at the Prada outlet.
