Some off the beaten track, unknown bargain sources like to stay….well, under the radar. These hidden sources have a variety of reasons to stay out of the spotlight, I try hard to respect their reasons for not wanting coverage and yet get the scoop. I don’t always publish everything I know.

First things first…. The outlet only sells merchandise that is 6 months old or older. You Trina Turk fanatics will have to hit the twice yearly sales at their local boutiques to get more current merchandise.

Secondly… East coast bargainistas have a better pick of Trina Turk last season overruns at Filene’s. They do not sell to any outlets on the west coast or at any of the organized sample sales we have here. If you do spot any of the Trina Turk label at any of these sales, it’s well over 3 years old.

Again this outlet like The Harari Outlet in Redondo likes to keep the buzz down and was not excited about my visiting the store. I had to whip through and get the feel of this store rather quickly.

The Trina Turk Outlet is located at rear of their sample cutting factory in Alhambra. Savings look to run 50%-85% off original retail. More like a boutique than an outlet, everything in stock appears to be first quality overruns. Though there isn’t a huge selection is any one collection, the selection is better than expected for a one label outlet. Their nice sized room of about 600 square feet has about 12-15 nicely arranged racks of clothing. Sizing here runs petite to large with the best selection in medium.

This line has a lot of mix and match separates which is perfect for career girls who want to make several looks out of a few pieces. I was only able to get a few prices on a few items but it will give you the feel of the place. Prices start at $30 for tees, cute colorful tanks, sweaters and cami’s and runs up to $150 for their striking fashion coats. A seersucker jacket was priced at $50. I think the retail is more like $130-$150. The same material in a cute halter dress from last summer was also just $50. A bright orange scoop neck sweater was $30. A long fashion coat in bright pink and black originally retailed for $448 but is here for $150. A frilly brightly covered cami was a great buy at $30.

There are lots of coordinated jackets, tops, pants, tees and skirts here. If you are a Trina Turk fan you should go by. It is their only outlet. Everyone here is super sweet and I didn’t feel at all put out when asked not to write anything down or write about them again.

So as secrets go…lets keep this secret bargain source just between us friends. Oh and um…don’t tell them BargainsLA sent you…. Just a good “in the know” friend.
