Calvin Klein is here!

The Blowing Rock Tanger Outlet Mall just added a new store; Calvin Klein! I am so happy to have Calvin ck-whiteKlein at our doorsteps!  I really like the variety of clothes that they have to offer to us. They have some really neat and classy pieces. You can usually expect to see a 20% -40% savings below retail prices at the Tanger Outlets.

I get very excited when a new clothing store comes to our town because my trips off of the mountain to shop for myself are very rare.  I really like finding something that not everyone else is wearing as well.  I am kinda funny about getting  that one little piece of clothing or ck-shirtaccessory that is unique to me. So, I  think  that the more variety there is , the  less  chance there will be for my twin to show up at an event!

The staff at Calvin Klein are very helpful and friendly. I really enjoyed the experience of shopping at a new store and for a fraction of a second I felt like I was shopping in a big city!  That is always a plus for me when I am shopping.

Did you know that AAA members can save at the Tanger Outlets? Simply show your membership at the customer service office and they will  give you an exclusive savings booklet with bonus discounts from various stores. I was not aware of that until today. I will definitely need to check out that savings booklet. Go to the Tanger Outlet website for sales and coupons.


I would love to hear from you all as to what your favorite shopping stores and boutiques are here in the High Country. Especially, if you have some that go beyond Harris Teeter and Walmart 🙂

Disclosure:  Calvin Klein and Tanger Outlets are not currently Mom Squad sponsors


  1. I am so excited about Calvin Klein… I agree that shopping for something unique here can be truly difficult! One place I have found that has some great pieces is Lucky Penny in Boone. Much of what they carry is for a younger crowd, but every once in a while, I find the perfect jacket or top to spice up the wardrobe a bit – and it’s nowhere near as expensive as some of the boutiques around!
    Thanks for the great review, Lillie!

  2. I am wondering what the price point is at the outlet. I used to get $50 CK Jeans at TJ Maxx for $35. I wonder what the markdown is? I am going to really have to go by there and check it out!

    I am also excited to see Boone and Blowing Rock get so many more shopping options! Thanks for getting the scoop, Lillie!

  3. You know, I love to go to Cato in Ashe County, near the Walmart. They have some wonderful clearance sales, and really nice plus-size items, which can be hard to find here.

  4. I have heard good things about Lucky Penny too!I look forward to checking it out. Sarah, I think that only when CK has good sales and/or good clearance mark downs you might be able to beat that price. Otherwise, TJ Maxx is probably your best deal.I Love,love, TJ Maxx! I think the cheapest jeans at CK were $49 unless I missed some which is a good possibility.
    Does anybody know what is gonna happen to The Goody’s(in Boone) building?
