Designer purse fiends, call your friends. Grapevine Mills is getting a Kate Spade New York outlet this fall.

The largest outlet shopping destination in North Texas announced in a release July 25 that the boutique would be joining its lineup in coming months.

"The highly anticipated Kate Spade New York will open later this fall and include selections from the collection’s signature handbags, accessories, and jewelry," the release says. "The global lifestyle brand is known for its crisp color, graphic prints, and playful sophistication that encourages personal style with a dash of incandescent charm."

It will be located near Michael Kors.

Locally, Kate Spade outlets also occupy spots at Grand Prairie Premium Outlets and Tanger Outlet Center in far north Fort Worth. Kate Spade New York (non-outlet) boutiques are at The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth and NorthPark Center in Dallas.

The Grapevine Mills boutique adds to the recently renovated center's portfolio of name brands that includes Neiman Marcus Last Call, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, J. Crew, Michael Kors, Coach, and Vera Bradley.

“We pride ourselves on offering the most sought-after, trend-setting brands our guests and shoppers love,” says Trudy Cresswell, Grapevine Mills' marketing director, in the release. “It is exciting to open the doors to Kate Spade New York as it builds on our commitment to be the go-to shopping destination in the Dallas area.”

Other recent openings at Grapevine Mills include two kid-focused venues: Let’s Pretend Parties, a place for birthday parties, tea parties, or camps for children 3-8 years old; and Goofy Turtle, a toy store offering a hands-on, interactive space for parents and kids to bond over play time.

They opened this summer, joining the uber popular Peppa Pig World of Play as indoor entertainment destinations for families.
