For more than three decades, Express stores have served the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico as the “sexy-fun and fashion forward place to be.” There are currently more than 600 stores with the Express name in the United States alone. Stores that are outside of the US, Canada and Puerto Rico are franchised through the company but are not directly affiliated. Shopping there is meant to be like hanging out with a favorite friend- casual, low stress and most importantly, a lot of fun. That is why a lot of the clothing lines are casual and fun wear so that you can buy what fits you well and feels good on.
What a Girl Wants
If you are curious about some of the top selling items at Express, the Love Express Loungewear line might give you the best idea. Tagged “for the casual girl in the city”, the line features items that range from slouchy pants, boyfriend style jeans, tank tops in nearly every color and long sleeved tees all designed to be mix and matched, layered or worn in any way that you can dream up. All of these items are perfect for chilly fall days hiking on nature trails or heading to the football stadium to catch your home team's next game.
Men are not left out at Express, either. The men's denim lab has every style of jeans with every type of finish and color that you could imagine in a wide range of sizes and name brands as well. There is also a wide range of shirts and tops to pair with those jeans plus shoes and accessories to make every outfit a complete look that you would be proud to wear.
Living the Exp-life
What is Explife? In part, it is the social media world of Express stores with blog posts and more. Each blog post deals with something exciting and unique for the world of Express, either a new store opening or an event that was held at a local store. In addition, Explife is one of the best ways to stay up to date on sales and special promotions including all of the in store deals and steals and special, online only sales. This is also the place that can help you find the special coupon codes that give you even bigger savings on all of your favorite Express items.
Express stores really like to express themselves, especially on social media. Every one of the Express Outlet stores has its own Facebook page so that unique sales can be posted to the people who will find those posts most helpful. It is simple to “like” these pages and then be kept aware of every sale that is coming up. You could be the first to know when a new shipment of your favorite stuff has come to town! Liking these pages can also give you access to codes for free shipping (if your prefer to shop online) or to special “secret” sales that only Facebook friends get to know about.
Express is also on Twitter and Pinterest.
Express Outlet Stores and More
Finding your favorite sexy, casual looks is great, but finding them at bargain basement prices is even better. For the casual woman who knows where to find a good bargain, the Express Outlet stores can be the perfect way to spend a Saturday. For those who are not lucky enough to live in easy driving distance of one, though, it make take a little bit of clever vacation planning to make it entirely worth your time. Because there are a great number of these outlets, some called simply Express Outlets and others called Express Last Hurrah Outlet, it is possible that you will be nearer to one than you imagined. There are outlet stores in California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan and Virginia as well as these stores, all part of the Tanger Outlet Mall family:
- National Harbor, Washington, DC
- Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
- Riverhead, New York
- San Marcos, Texas
The Tanger Outlet Malls usually are fairly large with a long list of name brand, outlet and warehouse stores that allow the bargain hunter to still be label conscious. Because of their size and the wide range of stores, it is important that you plan enough time to see everything that you want to see and to set a budget for your shopping spree before you even get to the mall's front doors!
A family or business trip could be planned that would allow for at least a few hours in an Express Outlet so that you could find some of your favorite bargains. This is also a great way to get ahead on your holiday shopping- finding bargains on items for everyone on your shopping list and then hiding them away until the time comes to send them off. You could even bring your gifts to the family and exchange them then, no matter what time of the year it is. This is perfect if you know you won't be seeing those particular family members during the actual holiday season.
