Special Guest Post by SeaWorld Mommy
Kiddos bursting at the seams? Pant legs looking like high tide is comin’ in? If your child is like mine (he grew half an inch in the past 4 weeks!), you’re constantly on the lookout for quality clothing for your kids. PS From Aeropostale in Orlando Premium Outlets has trendy, comfy, go-to styles for boys and girls ages 4 to 12.
The store (located in the north section of the mall, between Nautica and Forever 21 on the I-4 side) is brightly lit with a happy, young (mid-20s and under) sales staff. Every guest is greeted with the ubiquitous “Welcome to PS!” upon arrival. On weekends and during special events and holidays, there’s a craft station available for budding artists. Right now they’re having a “What Makes U Smile T-Shirt Design Contest” for kids in 1st through 5th grades. While you’re checking sizes and creating a wardrobe, your little one can be creating a masterpiece. Most kids who came in the store, however, seemed to be more interested in checking out the cool duds (especially the girls!).
Our haul consisted of two hooded jackets, a couple of long sleeve graphic tees, polos, and a Happy Hallo-weanie shirt, just for fun! Alas they didn’t have the “Bear Claw Slippers” on site, but they are available online as are a ton of other tops, jackets, accessories, and more. Their Super Heroes section, featuring Marvel™ heroes, caught the eye of many pint-sized Avengers walking by. And who wouldn’t want a Spiderman hoodie?!
While the selection was good for boys, I have to admit the girls section had more options (but then again don’t all girls have closet requirements twice the size of their boy counterparts?). The moms were as giddy as their little ones with all the sequins, glitter, and shine to be had in this season’s options.
Shoppers of this store enjoyed the variety offered and seemed to appreciate the bold colors and funky, fun offerings. Bargain shopper that I am, I liked the respectable clearance section in the back, in addition to the many sales available throughout. There are some pricy, top-of-the line items available, but savvy shoppers can sniff out some deals, too. Mom: happy. Kids: happy. It’s a win-win.
