Factory outlets near Florence...where ?

Can someone please advise exactly where the factory outlets are outside of Florence? This question I type with one hand as my wife twists the other back behind my back in a rather painfull fashion !!!

There are buses that you take out there if you don't have a car, here's an article in NY Times from just a few days ago...

If you thought the Prada outlet outside Florence was the Uffizi Gallery of off-price shopping, call Alitalia: it's time to go to the Mall. The newcomer to Leccio Reggello (a few Autostrada exits closer to Florence than Prada's Montevarchi outlet), the Mall offers a cross section of the best brands produced in the country. Sleek boutiques from Pucci, Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Valentino and others mix with Yohji Yamamoto, Yves Saint Laurent and a triple-whammy shop featuring Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Balenciaga. Best of all is the museum-quality Marni shop, stocking styles all the way back to the turn of the century ó in all sizes. Replenish lost fluids at the slickly designed Dot.Com Café, where a Campari-soda, a pizza bianca with speck and a bowl of tiramisu are just what the shopper ordered. Bag parking available. For more information, go to www.outlet-firenze.com.

I was in Florence last year, for visit some outlet the best is enjoyflorence and not the mall service.
It was a nice day like a personal tour and really gentle driver for the same cost of the mall service bus shuttle (i see in the mall a big bus and lot of person in their services).
You can find their timetable here:

Just as an extension of the question does anyone know of any outlet shopping along the route from Portovenere to Firenze and then onto just past Siena?
