The Big Outlet Sale Goes to SMX!

A new venue calls for a new pet name for TBOS — The Big Holiday Outlet Sale. For the regulars, y’all know they usually hold it over at MEGATENT in Ortigas, yes? But I guess it’s time for a little change to celebrate the holiday season. This is great news for all the Southern folk. The MOA area is a little bit more feasible me thinks.

I’ve done so many shout outs for TBOS (ever since they first had one, I think) that I’m sure most of the regular Style Manila readers know how things go but for those of you who are pretty new to it, let us take a look at the mechanics now, shall we?

And here’s what’s in store (perhaps this ought to explain why TBOS, among all other bazaars, is so popular):

Big discounts and lots of brands. I know some folks have voiced out their displeasure with past TBOS events but there are a number who claim the opposite. I reckon it all depends on the shopper and how expectations are set prior heading out to the bazaar.

So wouldn’t it be fantastic if you’d get to experience it (if you haven’t) without having to shell out money for the entrance fee esp if you’re just going to check it out?

Once again, TBOS has graciously offered Style Manila readers to get in for free (thanks Jerico!). It’s a 50 person guest list so this will be on a first come, first serve basis.

Simply follow Style Manila on Twitter and/or become a fan of Style Manila on Facebook then leave a comment below stating that you’ve done the deed (leave your twitter ID and/or name on FB) and it’ll earn you a spot (and a plus 1!) on the guestlist. I’ll be updating this post (real-time) with the list so you’d automatically know if you’re on it.

    • Adelen: I checked my comment log and I didn’t see any pending comment aside from this one you left. I apologise but unfortunately my hands are tied and it will be up to the organisers if they will accept your entry.

      Claire: Like what I told, Adelen, it will be up to the organisers if they will accept your entry.

      I’ll inquire if they can still accommodate late sign-ups. Or Jerico himself will respond. Check the post for any update.

  22. Adelene and Claire, I added you both on the list. Happy shopping! :)
