To be frank, I am not really into shopping as I have been too many shopping outlets everytime I travel. But since Las Rozas Village Shopping is located on the way to Segovia so we have a 2 hours stop here. Las Rozas Village shopping is about half an hour from the city of Madrid. We arrived here before 10 am and the shops only open from 10 am and some even at 11 am.
VIP Discount Card at Customer Information Center
The first thing you do when you arrived at Las Rozas Village is to go to the information center and get the VIP discount card, which will give you a 10% discount. Not all the designer outlets participate in this VIP discount cards, only for the selected brands. Having said that, most outlets still offer up to a 70 % discount. It shall not be valid when additional discount campaigns are on offer. (Plenty of terms & conditions to use this VIP discount card. ) There is no queue to wait for the VIP discount card so just go in and get one as you never know you may need it.
Over 100 Designer Outlets
Las Rozas Village is one of the best outlets in Madrid area, it big, over 100 outlets but still no bigger than the one in the Cabazon & Desert Hills Premium outlets @ Palm Spring California USA. Probably, one-third of the size of the American. The layout of the shipping area is similar to the designer outlets in America which adopt the outdoor outlet village, meaning in the Outlet, you walk outside between shops. All the outlets do not sit in one high rise shopping complex.
Since it is still early in the morning, most shops are not open yet but you can see there is already eager shoppers standing outside the shop to wait for the door open.
Most of the famous international designer brands are here, such as Coach, Gucci, Prada, Michael Kors, Dolce & Gabbana and many more Spanish and International Brand.

I was admiring at the big yellow maple leaves some plants at the sitting area.
Tapas Restaurants & Cafe
There are tapas restaurants & cafes in Las Rozas Village. For the spouse who does not like to shop, they can wait at the Starbucks Coffee. There are plenty of open-air outdoor seatings too.
The Spanish Brand
Some of the Spanish famous brands you may want to know are Bimba y Lola, LOEWE, Adolfo Dominguez etc. Tous is a Spanish, specialize for jewelry, accessories, and fashion (see below).
Another Spanish brand – Adolfo Dominguez
El Ganso – Spanish Brand
LOEWE – Spanish
Dolce & Gabbana
After the commercial incident in China, there are still plenty of Asian visiting Dolce & Gabbana which make me quite surprised. Probably there are not Chinese from mainland China.

GEOX – review
GEOX is from Italy and most of their shoes are made from leather. They are huge ranges to choose from, a different type of leather, colors, and design.
I was looking for a pair of below knee high boots and glad to found one in black which has my size.
This is the pair I got at 79.10 euro after a 50% discount before tax refund. I still able to get some money back from the airport when I do the tax refund. The total I paid for this pair of boots is about 70 euro after tax refund.
Interestingly, this American brand is full of customers. There is only up to 50% discount which I think it isn’t that cheap as compared to the coach outlet in America. But still a lot cheaper if you are buying from Singapore.
Things they sell in Coach here are different from the USA.
89 Euro after discount from original price of 350 euro for these little purses. I find them quite expensive or do I look wrongly at the price?
The Coach women handbags are very affordable with 129 euro
Coach petite haversack cost 289 euro from original price 450 euro. This is pretty cute I find with the golden touch, very shiny and chic.
Coach bomber jacket cost 449 euro and when I touched the material, it’s pretty thick but quite heavy.
This range of Coach haversack has few different colors. Which one is your favorite? I find the sky blue pretty cute.
Christmas decoration can be seen throughout the outlet village.
After an hour when the shops open, you see visitors started coming to the village to shop.
The origin is from Australia and made with twin-faced sheepskin with fleece on the inside. The colorful stars print are for kids.
I love this pair of boots as it made me think of my dog’s hair, also in white. He is a Japanese spitz dog.
To be frank, I don’t really fit to review Gucci as I don’t even “dare” to step into their shop. The price is high and I do not see any discount label (which I don’t think Gucci usually slash down their price). I was just taking some pictures from the outside.
I do love their interesting prints on the bags though.
Open Air Parking Lots
After two hours of shopping we went to the car park and was quite shocked at spaces of the parking lots are no longer vacant like in the early hours.
If you are in Madrid and love designer stuff, then coming to Las Rozas Village would be the right choice for you. This is paradise for shoppers and great saving too. Do remember to inform the shop that you need to do a tax refund, they will help you to input your details from your passport into their computer and then give you the document to hand in the airport.
At the airport, I usually like to get cash back rather than asking the tax refund to be charged back to my credit card. The instant cash back would be slightly lesser but at least I am sure I have gotten my money on hand before I fly out of this country. The charging back to my credit card does have some risk of not getting my tax refund back in case something went wrong and there is very little that I can do as I am already at the other end of the world.
