We have possibly the best reason ever for you to rent a Zipcar and call in sick tomorrow: The nation's first-ever Balenciaga outlet opens at Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets. The store will feature ready-to-wear, bags, accessories, and shoes for 40 percent off retail. From the center of Manhattan, the outlets are only 50 miles away. Think this opening will be any more sophisticated than the Topshop opening in Soho? And how on earth did the fashion gods conspire for both of these stores to open on the same day? The heavens hath smiled upon us.
Woodbury Commons, 498 Red Apple Court, Central Valley, New York, 10917 (845-928-2006); daily (109). Easter weekend: 4/10 and 4/11 (109), 4/12 (noon6).
