You're a total label whore on a beer budget. What do you do? Where do you go? Two words, three syllables: Sawgrass Mills. The retail gods have shined their commercialized light anew on everyone's favorite outlet mall with the exciting news of a major expansion.
"We are excited about this latest expansion, which will facilitate and improve the shopper experience at Sawgrass Mills," Cristiano Mancini, director of marketing for Roberto Cavalli says, alongside the mall's other 349 designer-name tenants including Prada, Gucci, and Burberry.
Adding a whopping 80,000 square feet to the nation's largest outlet shopping destination, the Colonnade Outlets at Sawgrass Mills will welcome 30 additional stores and full-service restaurants to the mix.

"This expansion will draw millions more visitors to our diverse destination," Nicki E. Grossman, president of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau said in a press release yesterday, "especially the international market that enjoys shopping almost more than visiting friends and family, dining, or entertainment, but luckily they can enjoy it all in one place."

Of note, the outlets underwent their most recent expansion, introducing designers like Versace, Diane Von Furstenberg, and the forenamed Roberto Cavalli only last year.
And like some sort of sequel to last year's openings, construction is already underway on the east end of the mall near Fashion Row, and set for completion in 2016.
No word on which designers, brands, or restaurants will occupy territory on the new square-footage, soon to fight for the affection of your hard-earned cash.
