Finding an Outlet

Because of the predominance of non-authentic goods (“knockoffs”), the safest method of purchasing Coach products at a discounted price is to purchase them directly from Coach factory outlet stores. Locating your nearest store can be done by visiting the Coach website store locator (you can narrow the search to outlets) or by visiting an outlet location website such as Outlet Bound. There are over 225 Coach outlet locations.Related Articles

Savings

Why are the outlet stores so popular? Coach does not permit its retail stores and online products to be deeply discounted. This leaves bargain hunters with the option of driving to the nearest factory outlet.

When you purchase a bag from an outlet, you’ll typically pay 30 to 60 percent less than you would at a standard retailer.

The Merchandise

The items sold in outlets are not always of the same caliber as those sold in the upscale retail stores. The goods may be last season’s styles or have minor irregularities. Coach also intentionally manufactures products specifically for its outlets, leaving the latest trends and styles for the retail locations.

This clever marketing ploy allows trend-conscious Coach fans to maintain their elitism, whereas bargain shoppers seeking quality goods can purchase the name without spending full price on cutting-edge styles. Your choices will be limited at Coach outlet stores, which means you should check back frequently to see whether that popular barrel bag or red wallet has been added to the outlet line. Here are some tips for checking out the merchandise at a Coach outlet store:

Limited Stock

Outlet stores may or may not have additional stock on hand. If you find a bag you like, then hold onto while you shop (or ask a salesperson to put it aside for you.) This way, you’ll avoid watching your great deal head out the door with another customer.

If you are interested in a certain shape, size or style of handbag, call the outlet before you arrive. The sales associates may be able to let you know if what you’re looking for is in store, or if you’ll be making the trip for no reason.

Look at the Labels

Each bag has a “creed” or imprinted leather label inside. This has information about Coach products but also contains a serial number.

  • If the serial number has two sets of numbers, with an “F” at the beginning of the second set, then the bag was made specifically for the factory stores.
  • If the creed label has a stamped, round mark with a circle at the center, then the bag was made for a full price store but is now being sold in the outlet. (Look carefully: the mark can be very light, and may be found in different places on the label.)
  • Small items (wallets, card cases, etc.) may have a narrow label with “Made in…” and the source. If the label has a dot on it as well, then the piece was made specifically for the factory store.

Returns and Exchanges

If you need to return an item, keep the receipt and do not remove the tags: returned items must be in unused condition. Coach outlet stores allow you to return or exchange the bag within 30 days.

Check Prices Carefully

Outlet stores can – and do – list their bags for more than the original retail price and then advertise the outlet price as a deep discount. Do your homework online before shopping: check out prices at the retail stores so you can check them against the prices at outlet stores.

If you are looking for the latest items offered in Coach catalogs, or for a specific color and finish, it’s best to head directly to your nearest Coach retailer.

Coach Outlet Website

Coach Outlet Online

Stores vary in the items they stock, so it’s no surprise that the Coach outlet website offers only general information to buyers (you can’t buy products through the outlet website.) It can be a valuable resource to shoppers, however. At the outlet website, you can:

  • Locate outlet stores by their zip code and get contact information. You can call stores ahead of time to check on product availability.
  • Discover current sales and discounts at nearby outlet stores or plan your vacation to include a quick Coach outlet stop.
  • Register for Coach emails, and receive notice of upcoming events, sales, and other special discounts.
  • See and print out handy shopping guides for the latest items in stores.

Obtaining Coupons

While many websites advertise Coach coupons, there are few legitimate ones available online. Your best bet for getting additional coupon savings at an outlet is to register your email at the Coach outlet website.

Some outlet centers, such as Tanger, also offer coupon books which can be purchased to help you save on the center’s brands. Coupon books are also offered free in some cases, such as for students and military personnel.

When Browsing at an Outlet Store

When browsing the outlet, make the most of your shopping experience.

shopping for handbags
  • Don’t be afraid to dig. While many of the newer styles will line the walls of the outlet, the clearance bins may be the best places to find some good bargains. Check the perimeter of the shop for what’s new, then dive in for last seasons’ best deals.
  • Always check for irregularities, damage, and quality. Irregular items are sometimes deeply discounted, and they should be marked or flagged by the store. Repairs for Coach handbags can be costly, and you may never be able to duplicate a missing piece or leather color.
  • Be sure to inspect the bags for signs of over-handling. Many purses in the outlets are kept in bins; they may have scuff marks, loose threads or sticky handles. Be sure to point out any signs of wear to an associate before you buy and ask for an additional discount.

Use Caution With Online Outlets

Unfortunately, high fashion designer goods have been copied over and over again, and due to these ubiquitous replicas, it is difficult to trust many online outlets. Consumers seek out sites like Overstock.com to bid for “authentic Coach handbags”, and although the site does not allow the sale of replica merchandise (according to the site policy), it takes no measures against the sale and purchase of false merchandise.

There are also many other websites that advertise themselves as outlets for Coach merchandise, but these are typically auction-style sales by secondhand retailers. Buyers have no guarantees regarding the products they buy online and sometimes, it’s nearly impossible to return the merchandise. Buying “Coach” bags online through auctions or on the street at markets can result in buying a fake, which is an expensive mistake. Check out this photo list for some hints on what to avoid.

If you are interested in purchasing goods from these sellers, visit an authentication site such as My Poupette first. These sites recommend auctions that sell authentic goods and point out counterfeit sellers you need to avoid. Purse forums and blogs are other great resources to find out which online outlet sellers others have purchased from that sell authentic Coach goods. Even if you don’t get the exact item or even the top-of-the-line item at a Coach outlet store, it is still from Coach.

Don’t Sacrifice for Style

If you are a savvy shopper who does research, you can purchase great Coach bags and make your wallet happy at the same time.

Best Coach Handbags

These 10 most popular Coach handbags showcase the most sought-after designs that the brand has to offer. Whether you want a day-to-day or evening bag, you cannot go wrong with any of these.

1. Rogue With Snakeskin Tea Rose

Rogue With Snakeskin Tea Rose

Review

If we had to choose only one word to describe this bag, it would be ‘quirky’. Feminine, textured, and utterly unique this is a bag that invites the touch and delights the eye.

Covered in black and purple leather flowers with genuine snake-skin detailing, the Rogue bag channels the ‘flower power’ era of Americana and presents it with a classic, sophisticated twist. As a reasonably sizeable shoulder bag with a structured body, hard bottom, and organised interior, this is the perfect bag for those who like to stand out in their day to day life.

The snake-skin handles are beautiful, but the removable shoulder straps are, practically speaking, far preferable.

2. Charlie Grained Leather Tote Bag

Charlie Grained Leather Tote Bag

Review

The timeless tote bag, featuring clean lines, high-quality grained leather, and the pale, buttery yellow all come together to give it a luxurious and sophisticated feel.

The gentle curve of the top edge prevents this bag from looking dull, and the contrasting interior adds some depth to the look. The interior of the bag is split into 3 compartments, one of which is zipped. Though this is a tote, it does come with a detachable, adjustable shoulder strap, too.

As a result, this bag is perfect for transitioning from the working day to casual nights out; no matter where you take it, this bag will not let you down.

19 x 27 x11 cm

3. Dreamer In Colorblock

Dreamer In Colorblock

Review

The almost delicate, tapering shape of this bag is only highlighted by the contrasting panels of leather and suede in pink, burnt umber, and fuchsia.

Just as the colours draw the eye to give the design a three-dimensional look, the difference between the smooth and grained leather and the soft suede invite touch. The shiny black handles are the final touch that brings the look of this tote bag together.

Spacious and stylish, this bag is a statement piece for those who like to be fashionable in the workplace. With two side snap pockets, an inside zip pocket, and a vast interior space, this bag can easily hold all of your essentials.

4. Parker Top Handle

Parker Top Handle

Review

If the glamazon of New York City in the 90s could be summed up with a bag, it would be the Parker Top Handle bag. A classy mix of uptown sophistication and downtown practicality, this bag comes in black or white.

Decorated in brass-tone metal details such as the ‘C’ logo around the twist-lock fastening and the chain which makes up a part of the shoulder strap. This is a relatively dainty handbag with an interior zip pocket and outside slip pocket to keep cash, cards, and other small essentials separate from the main contents of the bag.

Perfect as a daytime or evening piece, this bag will make a stylish statement piece for those who like to carry the spirit of the original fashionistas with them wherever they go.

5. Parker Leather & Coated Canvas Shoulder Bag  

5. Parker Leather & Coated Canvas Shoulder Bag

Review

A take on the classic ‘Parker’ design, this leather and coated canvas bag is a little cheeky in its presentation. The motif and colouring on the covered canvas section are reminiscent of vintage Louis Vuitton designs.

The contrasting beige of the smooth leather, broken up by dark studding on the outer edge of the covering flap and brass-toned flower around the lock fastening, give it a punky edge. The dark chain section of the shoulder strap, which is contrasted by the white leather section, differentiates the overall aesthetic of the bag in a really pleasing way.

Not huge, but easy to organise thanks to the two interior pockets this is a great bag for working days and casual afternoons in the sun.

6. Rambler Crossbody Bag

Rambler Crossbody Bag

Review

Truly dainty and utterly delightful this is a smart-casual evening bag which will blend well with almost any outfit (as long as it’s not overly formal).

The contrasting panels of smooth leather in tan, baby pink, sky blue, and black make it a quirky little. The black shoulder strap is adjustable and detailed with gold loops and buckles; this brings the whole look together by tying in with the twist-lock fastening.

With an interior card slot, zipped pocket, and slip pocket, this small bag makes the most of the space it has to offer and will easily carry your essentials.

7. Hutton Shoulder Bag

Hutton Shoulder Bag

Review

Another love letter to the 90s, the Hutton Shoulder Bag is pure heritage Coach class in all its glory. The chambray panels, emblazoned with the classic repeated ‘C’ design are coloured in varying shades of blue.

The result is stunning, especially with the tan leather edging, navy blue leather sides and back, and gold-toned fastening mechanism and chain section of the shoulder strap.

The dangling tag with the ‘Coach’ logo is a nice finishing touch, too. Dainty but far from delicate, this bag will hold your essentials but don’t expect to fit too much more into it.

8. Tabby Shoulder Bag

Tabby Shoulder Bag

Review

If you’ve ever wanted to feel like an extra in the original Sex in the City series, then this bag is definitely for you! Shaped like a classic baguette bag, this shoulder bag is both understated and glamorous.

The oversized ‘C’ logo is what really gives this bag a sense of nostalgic beauty. The short shoulder strap, which will leave the bag tucked tightly under your shoulder, give it a classic look. In contrast, the longer shoulder strap, which is unusually broad, updates the look a little.

Available in black, white, beige, and pink, this is a versatile bag that can be paired with almost any outfit. The downside, of course, is that this is a tiny bag. Despite its slip and zip pockets, this is a bag that can really only hold your phone, wallet, and lipstick.

25 x 15 x 7.5 cm

9. Troupe Crossbody Bag

Troupe Crossbody Bag

Review

Looking for a touch of biker-esque glamour in a luxury handbag? If so you’re in luck; the Troupe crossbody bag perfectly balances elegance and edge.

The heavily textured leather and chunky gold-toned chain strap (which is woven with leather) set this bag apart from the run of the mill, plain black handbag. The compartmented, cream interior adds a subtle flair, and the zipped middle pocket makes keeping cash and cards separate a breeze.

The exterior slip pocket is nice, but in reality, it isn’t overly useful. Travel light and this bag will add a touch of rock ‘n’ roll class to any outfit.

21 x 15.5 x 8 cm

10. Tabby Top Handle Bag

Tabby Top Handle Bag

Review

The classic Tabby shoulder bag in stunning stone grey; you’ll have to go far to find another bag that is so effortlessly classy, fashionable, and versatile.

The panels of high-quality, lightly textured leather and the unique shape of the flap prevent the bag from feeling dull or plain, and the oversized ‘C’ logo in shiny black is just the cherry on the cake. The tapering lines of the structured body make the bag look and feel tall and slim rather than block, and the top handle gives it a nostalgic kind of sophistication.

Of course, there is a long shoulder strap for ease and comfort. The vibrant, plum colour of the interior is a lovely touch, even if it’s only for your eyes.

There’s not a vast amount of space in this bag, however, the interior is well organised with slip pockets and zip pockets so you can count on being able to keep all of your essentials will you in style.

Dimensions:

28 x 23 x 12 cm
