Las Vegas' outlet malls and stores are the places to look for discounts on designer and name brands. With locations in Downtown and just south of the Strip, the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets and Las Vegas South Premium Outlets offer shoppers quality brands at sale prices.

Deciding which mall to visit might be difficult since many stores have locations at all of the outlet malls in Las Vegas. While distance alone may be the determining factor, other things to consider include the weather–the mall in Downtown Las Vegas is an outdoor mall as opposed to the South Premium Outlets, which is enclosed–and during summer, that may be an important factor to consider.

Although shoppers may be focused on the great deals offered in abundance at Las Vegas' outlets, they don't have to sacrifice an up-scale shopping experience. Tastefully decorated stores, attentive staff, and trendy merchandise will make any shopper feel at home. In the malls, look for plenty of seating, restaurants and food courts.

Popular brands and perennial favorites are well represented at all of Las Vegas' outlet malls, so shoppers who are loyal fans of particular brands like Nike or Coach will want to check ahead to scope out their choices. Remember that while lower costs are the defining characteristic of outlet stores, many of these brands are still spendy even at 50% off–although checking the clearance racks may turn up some surprising deals.

True Religion is perhaps best-known for its iconic jeans, which gained a reputation for quality construction after they hit the market. The store's outlet location offers shoppers discounts on the brand's jeans and t-shirts, which traditionally come at a premium cost. The True Religion outlet at the Las Vegas Premium North Outlets is a small store, but packed full of merchandise. Dedicated fans of the brand will want to check out the store's selections, and a little extra searching is likely to turn up great deals. Although the store is small and often filled with bargain-hunting customers, the tables and racks are maintained well, which makes searching for that special deal even easier.

9. Under Armour

The Under Armour outlet store at the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets carries athletic clothes, shoes and accessories. Inventory turns over quickly, with new items arriving frequently. Shoppers will find discounted merchandise and plenty of items on the clearance racks, in addition to the store's already lower prices. The popular brand began in 1995 when the company's young founder created a t-shirt designed to wick away moisture and remain light weight. Initially, Under Armour became popular with professional athletes, but quickly gained traction with the public. The brand's revolutionary fabric keeps both weekend warriors and the pros comfortable, dry and stylish.

8. Bose

Gadget and electronics lovers, look out: the moment you enter the Bose outlet store, you'll be captivated by the array of merchandise before you. Headphones, speakers and home entertainment options fill the modest-sized store. One room is a demonstration area set up to mimic a home theater arrangement with Bose sound equipment. The friendly and knowledgeable sales staff are happy to help, but not overbearing. Known for their quality products, Bose's merchandise is often an expensive purchase, but at this outlet location customers can take advantage of great deals on new and refurbished items. Out-of-state customers may want to ask about shipping, which is available at a nominal cost, or for free to some locations.

7. Tory Burch

The classic designs of Tory Burch have been attracting customers since the designer first launched a boutique in 2004.

While the brand's handbags are the star of the show at their Las Vegas North Premium Outlets store, savvy shoppers will also want to head to the back sale racks for deeply discounted wallets and other items. Excellent customer service is the standard here, and if you haven't checked out the sales ahead of time, simply ask the associate at the front of the store for the current deals.

5. Kate Spade New York
