It's possible because she is nervous/excited about having to go down the stairs and the strong need to pee (since that's why you're going out) is proving to be a bad combination...and resulting in accidents.
Personally, I would work on getting her used to going down the stairs outside of "pee time" to see if that helps.
Just a thought anyway.
