Ellenton Premium Outlets is set to expand its offering with one new retailer set to open just in time for the Christmas shopping season.

Tabots, the classic women's clothing and accessories store, will open an outlet in Ellenton in December. Talbots' 2,900 square-foot space will be near Lacoste. Talbots boasts a shop at the Mall at University Town Center.

Before the holiday shopping season is in full swing, Michael Kors will move into a newly renovated 5,000 square-foot space, according to the release. The new Michael Kors will face the center parking lot with a new neighbor, BCBG MAXAZRIA. The European chic boutique will move into a 3,000 square-foot recently renovated space.

By the time shoppers have recovered from the holiday season and are looking forward to hitting the beach, Billabong will open an outlet center at Ellenton Premium Outlets. Billabong is set to open in February just in time for spring break shopping.

Billabong will open a 2,100 square-foot store near Calvin Klein and carry swimwear, apparel and accessories for men, women and children.

"The additions of Talbot's and Billabong will complement the unique mix retailers found at Ellenton Premium Outlets," Sarah Ozgun, director of marketing and business development at Ellenton Premium Outlets said in a release from Simon Premium Outlets, the managing company for Ellenton Premium Outlets.
