The Outlet - Discount Retail Shopping!

Do you have a love for shopping AND saving money? If the answer is yes, then the Outlet is the place for you! The Outlet is a new retail boutique in Rio Plaza on Riverside Drive. They sell a little bit of everything! When I talked with Tiffany (one of the owners) she described their store as a treasure hunt! And it truly is! They have so many different products you are sure to find something you will love. The Outlet has jewelry, shoes, bedding, pool floats, and cell phone cases...Just to name a few things! They change their product daily to keep it fresh! You will find something new every time you visit. The best part about what they offer is that it is AT LEAST 50% off the retail price! 

The Outlet is able to offer this special discounted pricing to their customers because of their longstanding relationships with some of the nation's largest department stores. For the past 15 years they have been purchasing overstock and closeout items from the department stores and selling the product for a discount online. They decided it would be so much more fun to meet their customers in person and provide a boutique unlike any other in the St. George area.

You can count on The Outlet being around through the end of 2018 as they perform their "retail experiment". Make sure you visit them often and tell your friends and family so we can see them again in 2019! Go in and visit them today!

Affogato - Gourmet Coffee & Beverage Shop

Doesn't this look like the ultimate hang out spot?? Perfect for business meetings, outings with friends, dates, alone time, or whatever it is you're looking for! So where is it?? This is the newest Gourmet Coffee & Beverage Shop in St. George. It's called Affogato. It may sound familiar to you because of their wildly popular truck that could be found around town and at many events. They have decided to put down roots and open this shop and I am sure glad they did!

Affogato has gourmet drinks, coffees, smoothies, ice cream, and rootbeer floats! Everything has a unique flavor and will make you want to keep coming back for more.

Hidden Valley Park

This is a great park in St. George! I hadn't been to it in a really long time and I forgot how cool it really is! It's a large park with so many different things to do. There is a big playground with a separate playground for toddlers. There are two pavilions - one is a large one with lots of picnic tables and the other is smaller with a BBQ. There is also a sand volleyball court, half court basketball court, and tennis courts! Seriously so much to do. Oh and did I mention the splash pad?? This is a park to check out for sure!
