GREENSBORO, N.C., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pink is a bold color that is so significant that women everywhere know what it stands for immediately- it stands for hope! This Fall, Tanger Outlets is offering shoppers a way to join in the fight against Breast Cancer with its annual PinkSTYLE Campaign.
From September 12 through October 25, the 20th annual Tanger PinkSTYLE Campaign will take place at 41 Tanger Outlet Centers in the United States and Canada. Customers can purchase 25% OFF Pink Cards in Savings Packs of five Pink Cards for $5 and save 25% on a single item at participating stores.

"Tanger is proud to join with our retail partners and customers in a team effort to celebrate Breast Cancer survivors," said Steven B. Tanger, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tanger Factory Outlet Centers, Inc. "Our goal is to help raise and donate the funds necessary to continue Breast Cancer research so that preventative measures and eventually a cure can be found."
In 2013, the American Cancer Society estimates that 232,340 women will hear the words, "You have Breast Cancer." More than 625 women are diagnosed a day, and Breast Cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women. The chance of dying from Breast Cancer is 1 in 36. At Tanger, we want to see a cure in our LIFETIME. Join us and THINK PINK! You can make a difference when you shop and save during Tanger Outlets PinkSTYLE Campaign!
Since 1994, Tanger Outlet Centers nationally has contributed more than $12 million to this important cause through the PinkSTYLE Campaign, 5K races, Pink Partini Events and other Breast Cancer related fundraising events. Across the United States and now in Canada, Tanger will also raise money this year through a variety of other onsite and community activities including, but not limited to, sponsorships of walks and runs for a cure, early detection demonstration and prevention kiosks, fashion events and more.
