Patagonia Weekend!

Some people get excited for Memorial Day weekend because they get to go camping, or they BBQ, meet up with family and travel. My reason? The Memorial Day Weekend Patagonia Outlet 40% off sale! The Patagonia outlet in MT is located in Dillon, a good 2.5 hours away from me. That has never phased me! It's always worth the drive! The outlet store has wonderful prices anyway, most things 50% off or more. And I LOVE Patagonia clothes. They're well made, comfortable and fashionable (they just usually cost a pretty penny!) The outlet store is the perfect compromise, and on this particular weekend, they take 40% more off all the low prices! Hallelujah! So, at 7:30am this morning, my sister and I climbed into the car (we got to borrow my Mom's cool Jeep!) and headed South East toward that little town. We left early so we could be there when the doors opened. It was chaos when we got there! People everywhere! The first year I attended this sale event, I noticed there were huuuuge rubbermaid tubs with handles everywhere. I thought, 'they don't have baskets to carry? They have TUBS?! There's no way I could fill a tub'....I was proven very wrong. :) This year I did myself proud once more with an armful of fantastic finds. I was in need of a new down coat, and found two that I could not live without! One is trench-coat length, and dressy enough for chilly, formal events. The other one is dark purple and actually a child's size Large! LOL! They didn't have any women's puffy coats I liked. I'm small enough to sort through the Girl's stuff though! I also found a skort (I love skorts!), shirts and a lovely dress. At a normal store it would have cost me $600.00! But at the outlet store? Only a mear fraction of that. Wahoo! It felt good to shop! The check-out line was insane! And I noticed while waiting that there was actually a line of people outside the store still waiting for their turn to come in. We were at capacity! After they rung me up, and I handed them my money grinning, I walked out of the store and told the line of people that "it's so much fun!" They all laughed and agreed, and couldn't wait to get their chance. I came home and tried on all of my new clothes once more. Very little money spent, but now my closet is complete with some very quality items. What a fun way to spend a Saturday!
