I love spring shopping in Orlando! It’s the perfect time to update my wardrobe with bright colors and new styles for Easter, beach trips, and Disney Days. You know I can’t stand to pay full price so whenever it’s time for a big shopping trip I take the family to Lake Buena Vista Factory Stores. Unlike the other outlet malls around here, this mall has easy store-front parking, so I can pop into the stores I want to visit without schlepping bags for miles.
The mall gets even more merry with the 17th Annual Spring Festival on Saturday, April 12th. It’s a FREE festival for the entire family, including character appearances by Mayor Clayton and Ms. Merry, rabbits from Give Kids the World Village; and superheroes from Heroes Alliance. You’ll also enjoy a farmers market, crafts, face painting, balloon sculpting, games and an awesome sidewalk sale.
Plus, the center is selling raffle tickets for a chance to win more than $6,000 in great prizes including attraction tickets, hotels stays, store gifts and gift cards. One hundred percent of raffle ticket sales benefit Give Kids the World. Give Kids the World is an amazing village here in Orlando where kids with life-threatening illnesses can join their families for a dream Disney vacation.
Here’s your chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the mall, where you can select merchandise at over 50 spacious outlet shops and get great deals at the area’s only Old Navy outlet store, Lindt Chocolate, newly renovated Nike, OshKosh B’Gosh and Tommy Hilfiger Stores, plus other popular outlets including G by GUESS, Justice, Carter’s, Crocs, Calvin Klein, Converse, Fossil, and The Gap.
