L.L. Bean Outlet!

Recently, I visited the most fabulous L.L. Bean outlet and was amazed at the variety and prices at this store. My eyes were immediately drawn to the back wall of the store that was completely covered with the famous L.L. Bean tote bags. Isn't this amazing? The majority of the bags were about half price.



The store also has quite a large selection of Bean Boots in all styles and colors. My minnies insisted that I get a pair of these adorable embroidered slippers since my feet are always so cold during the winter! I was only too happy to oblige them.


Canoes and other large scale sporting and outdoor equipment is also available at the store, at prices that are lower than the retail locations. Of course, these also make great displays for totes, gloves, and other goodies.


Home goods are a fun find at the outlet. These madras pillows and duvet covers are half the retail price. Lamps, clocks, chairs, and other furniture are some other great finds.


Even the little ones have lots of perfectly preppy choices at this outlet. Isn't this pink and green sweater precious?


The majority of the items are first quality, but we found some seconds or returns in all departments at drastically reduced prices.

I suppose the person who ordered this tote bag decided that initials were probably a better idea than a monogram...

My minnies thought that this was hilarious. Of course, when you're 9, this is hilarious. I even got a chuckle out of it.

And I was not even tempted to buy it...

  2. Bethany...one of Andy's favorite things to do is search for the names and initials of the people in our family. If we find one, we have to buy it...that is why Libby has a weird looking hot blue backpack that says Libby but does not match any of her clothes!

  3. Love an LL bean. It's my husband's idea of Nirvana.(that an orvis).We visit the one in Freeport on our visits to Maine. It really is incredible.
    That tote bag cracks me up. If that were my monogram I would have stuck with my maiden name! What was she thinking!
