Not too far from Sanur - about 25 mins in a taxi, on Jalan Teku Umar in Denpasar is an outlet store called Millenia. It's right near Denpasar Matahari. You can get reject Tommy Hilfigger, Gap, Victoria's Secret, Hugo Boss etc. We have regularly bought from here and the clothes have lasted for years. We can't get Gap here in Australia and I've bought quite a few pull overs, including Abercrombie and Fitch, as well as jeans etc, tshirts. They don't have everything in the range and it changes regularly but we have always walked out with things. They also have a good kids range. For an idea of prices, Hugo Boss jeans AUD $30, Gap jeans and cargo pants approx $9 AUD. T-shirts and womens three quarter pants between $8 and $12 AUD. Sometimes they also have maternity wear. I think I've probably been there about 15 times and only once not bought anything. It's worth the taxi ride and will save you time on the streets. When you're finished the staff will call you a return taxi.
Keep looking at the labels - there is some locally manufactured stuff there like suits etc that I wouldn't buy because the quality is not up to scratch. They generally tear the tags out but I know what most of them look like. At the end when they scan everything it' comes up with "Victoria's Secret Singlet Top" etc and they also take Amex.
Don't get your hopes up too high - the Victoria's secret stuff is not generally the range you have in the stores in the US - just some knickers and very few bras, but each time I've been I've got those singlet tops with the built in bras which are handy for lollying around the hotel/villa and for back home around the house.
If you need more specific directions just let me know.
