One of our favourite ways to enjoy a gorgeous South Australian summer day is shopping in an open air mall. Harbour Town Premium Outlets delivers on everything you could wish for in an extended day of shopping; delicious food, discounted homewares and designer clothes, plus more shoes than you will probably ever see again in your life.
Here are the highlights of our day out at Harbour Town.
The perfect spot for a light lunch – or something more if you’re staying for late night shopping on Thursdays. Enjoy one of Silvana’s super tasty, fresh juices and soak up that sun!
A long time fixture in the mall, Wittner is a must visit for all. Their huge selection of past season shoes and racks of one off or sample styles mean we rarely leave empty handed.
You’ll find all the staples you’ve come to love from Hilfiger – polo’s, denim and on trend athleisure – as well as so much more. Our highlight was this chic Tommy X Zendaya Blazer in store for $179.70, it originally retailed for $599.
Can you really have too many shoes? We say no, not where Harbour Town is involved. Whether you’re an edgy trendsetter (hello ‘thong heels’) or prefer more classic styles, you’ll love Jo Mercer shoes for their quality and undeniable comfort levels.
Cue & Veronika Maine
Shop two stores in one – inside you’ll find generously discounted pieces for casual, professional or cocktail settings. Both labels have high reputations for quality garment design and premium fabrics. Most of all we love the fact they are Australian designed and owned.
The Lindt Chocolate Shop
Arguably Harbour Town’s shiniest store, everything about this chocolate cafe screams luxury and we cannot get enough. Their Iced Dark Chocolate comes highly recommended and hand outs of various flavoured ‘Lindor’ chocolate ball samples are commonplace. Who are we to argue with free chocolate, there’s really no reason not to make a stop here.
Villeroy & Boch
The designer china you’ve always lusted over. Treat yourself to a few pieces (or a set), there’s really no need to feel guilty when you’re buying at outlet prices. Summer fruits were the feature of our favourite designs but more modern tastes are also well catered to by simpler geometric patterns with touches of pastel.
This accessories giant has seen a lot of change in the last few years but Oroton’s quality workmanship still remains the same. Balancing classic and modern aesthetic tastes isn’t always easy but their wallets, clutches, mini bags and carry-alls hit the mark season after season.
