With Christmas fast approaching, The Outlets at Lipa in Batangas, is now ready with an all-out Candy Land theme to welcome shoppers traveling this side of the south. To mark the start of festivities, a giant Christmas tree was unveiled last November 23 amid musical performances before a crowd of more than 25,000 revelers.
Just an hour away from Metro Manila, the 9.3-hectare complex invites people of all ages to an elevated shopping experience filled with Yuletide attractions and activities. The Candy Lights installation at Parkade transforms the outdoor square into a field of colorful Christmas lights until January 12. Every Friday of December, the night sky is lit up with fireworks at 7pm, making for a truly magical scene. Kids and grownups alike can meet, greet, and selfie with Santa Claus every Saturday at 4pm.
Pinoy Yuletide won’t be complete without the traditional Simbang Gabi from December 15-23 at the Flavors at 6pm, a convenient time to attend Misa de Gallo for even the busiest people. From Friday to Saturday between 3pm to 9pm, the Christmas bazaar gathers sellers that showcase a variety of shopping exclusives, as well as sweet and savory food specialties.
The merriest of seasons also ushers in the much-awaited Holiday Sale offering hard-to-beat deals on top labels. Locals and visitors can spend an entire day immersed in a more wide-ranging selection of local and global retail brands at marked-down prices, by as much as 70%. The Outlets at Lipa currently houses premium brands like Nike Park Outlet, Havaianas Outlet, H&M, Adidas Outlet, R.O.X., Optique Outlet, US Department Store, World Balance Outlet, Dickies Concept Shop, and some of SSI’s concept shops including 158 Designer’s Boulevard and Samsonite Factory Outlet. Moreover, Cotton On Outlet, Bench Depot and Puma Outlet will open this December.
To refuel in between shopping sprees, mall-goers can dine in restaurants and food stops that include Choobi-choobi, Giligan’s, Hap Chan, Ichiban Boshi, Café De Lipa, Little Big Bowl, LKY’s Kitchen, Purple Beetle, Ippon Yari. Opening this December are Senor Pollo, Purrfecttails Dog Cafe, Koibito’s and 60s Diner.
Completing the experience-driven destination is the largest artificial turf in Luzon, the Aboitiz Pitch. The open-air venue has a 1,500-seating capacity and can be converted to an Olympic-sized football field that conforms to FIFA and AFC standards. Active lifestyle enthusiasts are encouraged to head over with their family and friends to the multi-sports field to enjoy the holiday air outdoors while watching live football on weekends.
The Outlets at Lipa, located inside the LIMA Estates in Lipa-Malvar, Batangas, beckons not just to retail tourists but also to individuals and groups hankering for a close-enough Christmas getaway. Since it is accessible to neighboring provinces like Laguna, Cavite, and Quezon, people no longer have to bear the mood-dampening traffic jams leading to Metro Manila or Santa Rosa to experience unique and world-class shopping and recreation.
