Taste and Style at Citadel Outlets - #UntamedStyle Linkup

When you get invited to an event called Taste and Style hosted by a local Outlet Mall you say YES! The only outlet mall in the city of Los Angeles, Citadel Outlet had a Taste and Style event this past weekend. I was invited to experience their VIP lounge and taste some wine from San Antonio Winery, a local winery. How can you say no to a day of VIP treatment, local wine, bites and SHOPPING! I didn't want to be rude, so gladly accepted the invitation. What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon, a little wine to get you warmed up for some fabulous shopping.

This was the 3rd and last Taste and Style event for the year. Citadel Outlets has several events through out the year, if you're in LA or Southern California I highly recommend you attend an event at the Citadel Outlets. They are so choice! The Taste and Style event was a small group and held in the outlets VIP Lounge, located by the customer service. Yes they have a fancy lounge just for us VIP shoppers. You can sit and relax after a long day of shopping, lounge is equipped with comfy furniture, WiFi access and of course drinks and treats. You can live the high life while shopping at the Citadel Outlets, however VIP Lounge is only available to select guest and on days of events. You can find out about new events here

All Guest were treated with VIP treatment, with wine tasting from San Antonio Winery in Los Angeles and small bites from the wineries restaurant. I am kinda of ashamed to admit that I have never been to San Antonio Winery, so sad because their wines were so good!  I am not really a drinker and rarely drink due to my low alcohol tolerance, yeah total light weight...LOL So back to the wine, they have several varieties and all so good. I was able to sample a few different kind of wines. By sample I mean guzzle, they were very generous with the servings and pretty much had an open wine bar. YAY! You can see some of the wines I had here. Did I mention they had beer too! Yeah not a beer drinker either, however I had the best Italian beer. WOW this beer is so light and refreshing, never tasted beer this good. It's an imported beer and can be found at the winery as well. See all the good stuff I was missing out on, good thing I made it to the Taste and Style event. 

After we had a our fill of wine, beer and food we headed out for some shopping. Yeah I know shopping and drinking probably not a good combination, especially at an outlet mall. Who could resist over 130 stores of some of the fashion top brands. I had to make my way over to Coach, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Cosmetic Company...geez way to many to mention. If you are in LA or ever come to visit you MUST stop and do some shopping at the Citadel Outlets. They have plenty of parking, valet as well, a shuttle from Anaheim resorts, a free shuttle to and from downtown LA and of course tons of great stores.  So that was my weekend, not too bad right.
