From prior deals:

PSA, these items are factory (made-for-outlet), not the full-line bags. Kate Spade likes to have these "Surprise Sales" with what looks like deep discounts, but these are the bags and prices you'll get if you go any day to any outlet.

Factory item codes will start with WLRU or WKRU or PWRU . Department item codes will start with PXRU .

Factory is essentially a separate line and is manufactured in a different country than department items. Quality isn't bad, but don't be fooled that these are the same bags you'll find in a Nordstrom or Macy's.

Here are the general differences between retail vs. outlet:

1. Retail item number will begin with a PX and outlet will begin with a W.

2. Leather is higher quality and will last longer with retail. Outlet will use thinner, lighter leather.

3. Retail will have a metal gold spade charm logo. Outlet will often just have a printed logo.

4. Retail will often have metal feet on the bottom of the bag; outlet may not.

5. Retail price tags will say "Mfr Suggested Retail Price $xxx". Outlet price tags will say "Like Style $xx and Our Price $xx".

5. Retail will have better detailing like leather trim on inside pockets; outlet will not.

6. Retail may often include dust bags. Outlet will not.

I am a Kate Spade fan and buy the "W" code products. I see no difference from the "P" codes. I've yet to have a purse or wallet wear out, fall apart. It's still the same leather and same product IMO, and doesn't make my wallet lighter vs. ordering "P" codes.
The only difference is, you won't get a dust bag with "W" codes.

Hope that helps.

ty for sharing, good to know - are you aware of any indicators (different label, prints, etc) that point to factory vs regular production?

Real bags but I say the Factory quality may not all that great. I shop for bags several times a year for the family and I am not impress with what I see from Factory bags vs B&M. This applies to all of them, not just Kate Spade. It really reminds me of the second stores in China where they'll buy the bad quality brand name clothing and sell them cheaper in store. Usually the clothes have a pen mark on the tag so you know but a sure way is to find the defect. Same with these bags. I have yet to NOT find a defect in a Factory bag.

Doh, seems like prices are higher than Factory Outlet. Found one that I was going to buy this weekend at Outlet,

It's $40 more O.o

The inside lining of a factory bag has the "Kate Spade" name in a repeating pattern. The original bags sold in department stores have black and white striped interior. You can also tell by the Spade symbol as well. Department stores usually have an actual gold Spade on the outside while the factory is either printed on, not there or it's an outline of a spade.
