New York Shopping Guide

Outlets

Calypso St. Barth au Marché

All the silk wrap dresses and sarongs that don't blow out of this vacation-centric chainlet wind up here: There's often also a host of cashmere wraps and seasonless batiked scarves. 426 Broome St., 212-941-9700

A.P.C. Surplus

The fact that it's open only a few days a week and so far down Grand Street you'll feel like you're about to walk into the water shouldn't deter: This mini-outlet, housed in a gorgeous former bank, is packed with last-season merchandise from the much-loved French brand. 33 Grand St., Williamsburg, 347-381-3193

Paul Smith Sale Shop

Tucked away on a quiet stretch of Grand, this space looks exactly like a Paul Smith boutique, complete with Liberty print blouses and striped socks, except everything is reduced by 50 percent. 280 Grand St., Williamsburg, 718-218-0029

Brooklyn Industries Outlet

All the overstock from this popular Brooklyn-based chain—loved for its low-key tops and sweatshirts—winds up on the racks here. 184 Broadway, Williamsburg, 718-218-9166

Gabay's

It's not particularly well organized, which can make for an extremely frustrating shopping experience, but it's always worth stopping by. You'll find apparel and plenty of shoes and bags from heavy-hitter labels like Chanel, Dior, Prada, and Lanvin—culled from top stores like Henri Bendel and Bergdorf's—all 50 to 75 percent off. 2101 Broadway, 212-882-9990; 101 Seventh Ave., 212-352-0856

Loehmann's

Offering a department-store's depth of everything from Marc Jacobs heels to Ports 1961 dresses, it's best to shop here early in the morning when the racks are still organized. 2101 Broadway, 212-882-9990; 101 Seventh Ave., 212-352-0856

Century 21

The newest branch of this bargain hunter's paradise is so much better than its Manhattan flagship: It's less claustrophobic and crowded, the excellent merchandise isn't picked over, and, thankfully, the dressing rooms are private (the NYC location has communal changing areas). 200 Bergen Mall, 201-490-2000, Paramus, NJ c21stores.comfor more information
