Designer Discount shopping in Paris, London and Italy

Does anyone know where I can find the Burberry, Prada, or Louis Vuitton outlets? I have searched the web and been unsuccessful. I once read a guide about London that told me where the places are, but of course now I can't remember which guide it was. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Bottomley and adhzp-
I have not personally been to the Burberry outlet, but have read posts (on this forum, I believe) that it is hit or miss many times, and may not be worth the long trip out to the outlet. It is my understanding, that even after the exchange rate you still save around $75 or so when purchasing, say a Novacheck handbag at one of the 'regular' Burberry stores in central London, which in my opinion is pretty darn good!

You could get on a train from London to Portsmouth (about an hour)where there is a historical naval dockyard and a very large outlet "village" including Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Ted Baker, Nike, and hundreds more. It's called Gunwharf quays..lots of eateries and historic sightseeing to boot all in one place. If you have time, well worth a visit !

A great web site that is based in Italy, but ships to the states, is www.yoox.com . They have all the brands your looking for from last season at 50% off. Good return policy too.

If you go to www.tuscany.net you will find a list of factory outlets in Tuscany. It's on the left hand column. Prada was one of them.
