Robinson's Starmills Pampanga, an outlet store haven

Does a 50% or 70% sale sign get your heart rate up? If the answer is yes, you need to visit Robinson's Starmills in Pampanga. The mall claims to have the biggest collection of outlet stores in one roof, with big brands like Levi's, Mango, Plains & Prints, and Havaianas on a year-round major sale. If you're intimidated about going to Pampanga, don't worry, Starmills is just along NLEX and only an hour away from Manila. You can't miss the big mall complex along the road.

So, I'm sure you're wondering about the great finds in Starmills. I took a ton of photos to show you, plus price information as I remember them. Overall, I think that if you like buying from the brands mentioned here, a trip out of town is worth it. Just one downside - the sale items are from last season's stock and could even be older than a year. There are also limited sizes available. Well, they're on sale for a reason.

I don't know much about American Rag as a brand, but what they sell in their outlet store are mostly basics like tees and jeans. They have a few unique items, too. They also carry some Terranova and Calliope clothes.

Cute, staple miniskirts for only P400

A khaki beaded jacket. P1,200 if I remember correctly

Mogao is a store that sells surplus clothes from Hong Kong. The prices range for P90 to P1,800. Most of the stuff in the store are really cheap.

Sleek blazers for men, around P1,800

Office basics for P150

The Levi's Store in Starmills isn't actually an outlet store, but they do have quite a number of sale items at 50% off. The store also carries Docker's.

And now, for my favorite part! The Mango Outlet Store alone is worth the trip to Pampanga. The clothes here are at 50% to 70% off! There are some items from last season, but a majority of it was from last year's stocks. Still not bad, considering that the clothes are still fashionable and high-quality - not to mention extremely cheap for Mango. Go here if you plan to have a major shopping spree.

Tops at P500

Jackets from P1,500 to P2,000

A pretty denim mini for only P730

I believe this is P700+

Skirt rack at P700

Shoes from P1,500 to P2,500

The boots that I should have bought. Those heeled boots were only P1,250! I am mad at myself for not buying them. It was my size too, at 6. Gaahhh. I didn't buy because I have so many rarely-used shoes lately, but now that I think about it, there's always room for one more pair.

A beautiful sequined dress. It used to be ~P9,000, now it's on sale for P3,990

All of the clothes at Space were at 50% off, but they were mainly basic, plain pieces. Mostly unremarkable.

Plains & Prints is another must-visit. If you find their clothes normally too expensive for the so-so quality and design, try buying them here where everything is 50% off! The selection here is more updated than the one at Mango. The majority of clothes sold here are for office wear, but there are a lot of beautiful dresses (normal priced at P2,000) from seasons past. 

Plains

Shirts with a leaf applique

Functional, stlyish clutch bags

Love this dress! It was sold at around ~P1,000 only

Bags and belts

Another nice dress

And another!

Tops for office wear, around P600 to P800 a piece

Greenery outside the mall

There are two All Flip Flops stores in Starmills: the one on your left is the outlet store, while on the right is the store where the latest, non-sale items are. The Havaianas flip flops were at 30% off.

The latest

The Guess outlet store has clothes on 50% to 70% off. Not many interesting finds, but I guess you go here for the jeans.

A dainty blouse for P999

I like this jacket! The denim jacket is once again deemed trendy. Price isn't so bad, too.

Very chic polo for the boys

Last but not the least, there's Brandsmart. This is where I got my Nine West heels! Apparently this is the outlet store of Stores Specialists Inc. since it carries brands like Armani Exchange, Lacoste, Charriol, Liz Claibourne, and even a few (very old and barely saleable) Beauty Bar makeup.

This gorgeous Armani blazer's original price is P8,450

Now it's just P1,690! Wow right?

The Nine West area. Not everything was 65% off ;)

And that's it. Do you think the place is worth a visit? Let me know in the comments! Also don't forget to join my guessing contest which ends this Friday. Guess the price of my Nine West shoes for a chance to win CDs and beauty stuff.

Hahaha, I pretty much take Rob Starmills for granted since I live near it; reading this post is making me appreciate it more. Bargains galore! \o/ Also, if you head on along to Marquee Mall in Angeles, there's a sort of Aldo Outlet store that sells their shoes and bags for Php600-Php2000!
