It's worth noting that "allow" is sometimes used in combination with "for", as in "allow for". If you haven't already, I think this is a practical thing to jot down in your notebook.
Also, I think that "allow" is more likely used for ordinary and everyday topics of conversation. This is just a guess. One really can't say for sure. I think it's likely that "permit" is often used for official announcements and notifications. Once again, this is a guess. One really can't say for sure.
