Fall’s upon us. If you’re like me, you’re looking at the calendar wondering how it can already be October. The kids and I got out the Halloween decorations a couple of weeks ago so I knew we were in October and that Halloween was coming, but then life happened and time went back to flying by. Do you need to grab some things to throw together a Halloween costume? Or need a cute outfit to wear to the pumpkin patch? Maybe you just want to add a little fall to your indoor decor. Grab your purse and head to Tanger Outlets for some quick and easy Halloween touches. A couple hours of shopping, snacking, and saving and you’ll be all set. A big thanks to Tanger Outlets, Hilton Head for inviting us out to find some Halloween goodies to share with you.
Ann Taylor Loft
Mom needs to be comfortable chasing kids and carrying pumpkins at the pumpkin patch. Ann Taylor Loft has some really great sweaters and shirts that would be perfect for a fall outing. Dress them up with some cute leggings or a jean skirt or stay more casual with jeans or even some black yoga pants.
Celebrate all Halloween weekend with these adorable pjs from Gymboree. And pjs aren’t just for bed – they’re a perfect costume too!! Especially if you have a little one. Those cute costumes are super adorable but chances are good they’re going to fall asleep while you’re out and about. Having them already in jammies saves you from waking them when you get back home if you don’t have to.
Need a shirt to wear to the pumpkin patch or to go under your costume? They’ve got some great options there too. And even seasonal plain colored pants which can be tricky to find. Throw them under a costume to add another layer if it’s going to be chilly while you’re out trick or treating.
The little trick or treaters don’t have to be left out either! Grab a pair of these khakis, a plaid shirt, and one of the sweater options and you’ve got an outfit that will work for you the entire holiday season. Wear it to church over Halloween weekend, for Thanksgiving dinner with the family, and for the holiday pictures you’ll have taken.
Moms don’t forget to keep an eye out for yourself while you’re shopping for the kids! You might not want to wear a full on costume, but a cute little accent gives you a bit of holiday flair without too much effort on your part.
Accessories like these can be pricey and hard to find. Don’t forget to check your favorite stores at your local Tanger Outlets for them to add the finishing piece to your child’s holiday costume. They’re also great to build a costume around. The witch headband would be perfect with a black dress, orange or striped tights, and some black boots. You’ve probably got most of that at home already! And the princess crown? I’m sure your daughter has a fancy dress she can throw on for the night to trick or treat in.
Build A Bear
It’s no fun to trick or treat alone. Consider stopping by Build a Bear to make a little buddy to take with you. Or make a friend specifically for the holidays (think Elf on the Shelf).
No time to put together a costume? Grab an outfit from Carters for your little one. It’s already put together for you. The shirts are perfect to wear to a costume parade at school if you’re not able to take you child’s entire costume into school.
Need a super easy costume that will also be double duty? Head out trick or treating in a fuzzy bathrobe and slippers. Add layers underneath to accommodate for colder weather.
H & M
H & M has options for the entire family. If you’re looking for a one stop shop, this is going to be your store. There are cute options for the kids to wear.
And don’t forget mom too! Grab a new outfit for trick or treating that you can wear again during the holiday season. Layers are always important, especially here in the South because you just never know what the weather’s going to do.
Trick or treat bags don’t have to be pillow cases. Get something you’ll be able to use again and again. And Mom – grab yourself a new bag too because you’ll be carrying around bug spray, a first aid kit, water bottle, and 50 other things with you.
Claires had so many different costume accessory options! These would be perfect if you’re looking to add a touch of Halloween to a uniform.
Little things like earrings are perfect to add a touch of Halloween to any outfit and can be used year after year.
Need something to complete your costume? Claires might have just what you’re looking for! They’ve even got bigger items like vampire capes.
So many costumes don’t come with shoes. Crocs has every color of the rainbow so swing by and get just what you need to match. They’re so easy to get on and off, so even in a costume your child should be able to switch shoes if needed.
Harry and David
Make sure the kids have an extra spooky dinner with these great pastas from Harry and David. Adults will appreciate them too if you’re having a Halloween dinner party.
Need a treat for co-workers or live somewhere a lot of kids don’t visit? Hand out bags of Moose Munch! If you over buy, you’ll have delicious treats to snack on while you’re watching your favorite Halloween shows.
Don’t stress out if you’ve got guests coming into town for Halloween. There are so many different options for cute treats that you won’t feel the pressure of having to make everything yourself. Put some of these treats out and spend your time with your loved ones snacking and enjoying each other instead of slaving over the stove or cleaning up a baking mess.
Bath & Body Works
Let your guests leave with a little bit of a fall scent with these soaps. There are so many different scents you’ll be able to find one you love.
The trick or treaters who have to use your restroom will be so happy to see these.
And it’s not just soap but lotion too. Keep a bottle in your desk at work to re-hydrate your hands and add a fall scent.
Take a few minutes to destress once you get through the Halloween crazy. These bath bombs are perfect little treats for your co-workers or a teenage daughter’s friends instead of candy.
Light one of these candles to make sure your house smells amazing while you’re passing out that Halloween candy.
Need a quick and easy idea for your husband? Stop by Vineyard Vines to grab a plaid shirt and jeans for a quick farmer costume that you’ll be able to reuse throughout the rest of the year too. Jeans never go out of style and the red plaid shirt would be great for holiday pictures.
Need to dress up like an athlete or coach? Head in to Under Armor and you’ll be all set! They’ve got lots of shorts, shirts, socks, and other accessories to represent your favorite sports teams or sport.
