Roermond outlet.

Last Saturday, I decided to allow myself some shopping after a longgg while.

(Besides, I need to get some souvenirs, don't I?)


So I paid Roermond designer outlet a visit!


 When I first reached Roermond station

Considering that this place is quite far from the city, I had to think twice before really going there. It was a 2 and a half hour journey by train, and I need to change trains once before I got to Roermond station, which is quite tiring what more at a place I'm not really familiar with. Even my colleagues didn't know where this place is!

So yeah, my main motivation was the Prada and Mulberry store there.
 When I first reached there, I was stunned. It was a town but nothing like any outlet I've been to! There's this festival going on so there were so many people and kids there; most of them wearing costumes, and these guys wearing black paint on their faces and the costume. (Apparently it was a celebration in the Netherlands, Zwarte Piet; and these people are wearing costumes of him giving out presents to the kids. Kudos to him for Googling it for me.)

Braved myself to walk a bit too far, and found it. My heaven.

 I've been to some of the big outlets in Japan, but none of them have Gucci or Prada or Mulberry or Salvatore Ferragamo or 7 for All Mankind! 


Since it took 2 and a half hours to get there, I had to catch the early train back to the city so it limits to just about 2 hours to do the shopping. It was freaking impossible people. They have all these high-end stores that I wanted to go in every one of them but so little time!

Managed to grab some stuff anyway.

But I realized, it took me longer to splurge now that I'm really working. Being a student really was a great time for me as all you have to do is getting good grades and passing the papers, but there weren't really any financial stuff you have to worry about. But now that I work so hard every day doing different task and learning so many new things, I find it hard to let the hard-earned salary just go away once I swiped the card at the counter.

Growing up is really NOT FUN.

    1. Hi Miss Sappy :)

      Yup, that was the train I took. You can check for train schedules here - http://www.ns.nl/en/travellers/home (they've got apps too, super convenient for phone - http://9292.nl/). Train from Amsterdam to Roermond usually takes almost 2 hours, you can check the travel times/transit on the website too. Usually there are both direct train and the one with transit throughout the day so up to your convenient travel time.

      For Prada bags, they have nice leather totes around 550 euro and medium size handbags as low as 250 euro. But I was told that they do occasionally stock up their products every season so they might have different collection from previous year (I was there sometime in Nov '12). For purses, the price is around 200 to 500 euro.

      Hope this helps! Have fun on your trip :)

    1. Hi there!

      If you mean this one - http://www.purseblog.com/totes/prada-saffiano-lux-tote.html, yes I saw this bag at the outlet that time. But I'm not sure if they still have this now cause it was in Nov 2012 :) They mentioned that they bring in new stuff every few months, but some of the classics ones remain. I'd say just go to the outlet and see the collection for yourself, worth it really!

  7. I seldom leave a response, however after reading through a few of the
    remarks here "Roermond outlet.". I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright.
    Could it be just me or does it seem like a few of the comments come
    across like they are coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are posting at other online
    social sites, I would like to follow you. Could you list of every one
    of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page
    or twitter feed?
