Japan New Year Sale and Lucky Bags 日本新年大減價和福袋

I wasn't around during last new year so I ordered my L'occitane lucky bag online. This year I decided to go to Mitsui Outlet and Shinjuku.
因為去年新年不在,所以上網買了法國護膚品L'occitane的福袋。今年難得沒回國,就去了三井的outlet和新宿逛。
  
There were some lively performances at the Tama Minami Osawa branch. It's located at Tokyo city's outskirts and train ride costs 390yen, around 35-40mins from Shinjuku via Keio line.
多摩南大沢的outlet有一些表演和活動,非常熱鬧。 從新宿乘坐35分鐘的電車就到了。

People can be seen queuing outside the Coach outlet but I find that the selection and special offer same as Gotemba Premium Outlet's. I was surprised to find Lacoste special offer not as good as a normal day's discounted price at Gotemba. Disappointed, we decided to shop at random to see if there's any nice lucky bag. There are many kinds of lucky bag. For apparel, it's mostly winter wear. There are also lucky bags for bags, winter/hair accessories, cosmetics, sports, shoes, home and living, etc. No spring/summer apparel.
Coach外面大排長龍,可是我覺得選擇和折扣和御馬場一樣。我喜歡的Lacoste品牌竟然比御馬場的折扣還少!因為有點失望,所以隨便去找找有沒有物有所值的福袋。福袋有很多種。但是因為是冬季,所以大多數的福袋都是冬裝的,其它的也有包包,服飾,化妝品,運動裝,鞋子,居家用品等。沒有夏季服裝就對了。

We found this local apparel shop carrying various fashionable winter wear and happen to grab on to the last lucky bag priced at 8400yen for 8 random items. A coat, a dress, a cardigan, a sweater, an accessories and other random items are guranteed. Usually lucky bags cannot be opened, but the sales was kind enough to let us have a small peep inside.
我們隨便逛進了一間服裝店,拿到了最後一個裝有8個產品的8400yen福袋。店員說裡面一定會有一件外套,洋裝,和毛衣。雖然福袋通常都不能看,但是店員還是讓我們偷眇了一下。

Of course, curiosity kills the cat and since we have the last piece, I decided to buy and find out what's inside...
因為實在好奇,又那麼有緣拿到最後一個福袋,所以就決定買了!

It was rather exciting digging out the items, if you're really curious about what's inside, you can go to my guifu blog (another blog that I keep track about my shopping). I was satisfied about my lucky bag
since it contains some fashionable clothes that I would otherwise not buy or wear. Of course those ugly items would be worn at home.

The next day, 2nd Jan, we hit down Shinjuku department stores to check out their sale. However, it turns out that discount was mediocre, insufficient to spend our time there since Gotemba outlet's discounts are way better. Of course, Singapore has the best sale prices. As for the lucky bags, it depends if you're willing to take the risk to accept whatever that's inside. For me, it's a great way to start the new year with cheap fashionable good quality new clothes :P

把衣服一件一件挖出來是挺興奮的XD。假如真的好奇裡面是什麼,請到我的貴婦專區看看。因為衣服設計還蠻時尚的,要不是在福袋裡面,我看我是不會買的。當然醜的就在家裡穿。

第二天我們去新宿的百貨公司血拼。但是發現原來折扣並沒有比御馬場的好。當然新加坡的大減價會更好。福袋...得看你願不願意接受全部的東西。對我來說,今年的福袋有的是便宜,時尚和品質還不錯的衣服,是一個新一年的好開始:P
