members only shopping
Members-only shopping is all the rage lately… as is bringing sample sales online! I’m desperately missing my sample sale opportunities from Los Angeles, so this is my new addiction. Sadly, it’s a daily caffeine jolt of designer wares, but it’s something to look forward to every morning!
First… there’s the exclusive Gilt Groupe. In order to access their sales, you’ll need a member to invite you — and I just so happen to be one! (Leave a comment and I’ll hook you up ASAP!) Their sales tend to be the upper crust of couture with prices rarely falling below $100/item, but their fire sales every now and then of unsold merchandise have outrageous deals. The sales open up each day at 9:00 am Pacific.
Then there’s RueLaLa.com … which follows the same formula as gilt, with a bit of a better price range. Their sales start daily at 8:30 am Pacific. Plus, you don’t need to “know anyone” in order to get a membership.
I’ve yet to indulge in any purchases yet, but quite a few of my friends have and they seem quite happy with what they’ve received. I’m still waiting for a Vera Wang dress to drop down to $120 … it could happen right?
Can you please invite me to Gilt? What info do you need from me? Yay, thanks so much! :)
I love looking at the sample sales online that are exclusive to members. I haven’t bought anything yet. I’m a member of HauteLook. Have you seen them before? If you want to be a member, let me know and I can send you an invite. Their prices are pretty reasonable. Lots of apparel for under $100 and up.
I have heard about Gilt all over the place recently. I’d love to be invited!
I would love to be to invited to Gilt. If you don’t mind I would really appreciate it!
All sent and ready to go!
I also wouldn’t mind the invite! :)
Hautelook.com is another members only!
Sent it right out! And I’ll hop off to sign up for HauteLook too … my slush fund hurts right now.
Whoo hoo! Thank you! Also, RueLaLa is by invite only now. :(
Have fun with hautelook!
I just joined Gilt! But with working on the house, it’s a financial distraction I *really* don’t need. But I did quite love the Miguelina action I saw the other day…
I’m with ya sista. I clean up a little puddle of drool each morning around 9:15. But no credit card ever gets whipped out of the purse!
I would love to join Gilt Groupe… sounds amazzzzzzzzing!
Hi Mrs. Lemon! Can I please get a Gilt invite?
Certainly! :) It’s only members-only until I share it with the whole world!
