Get ’em while they’re hot!

Surprise, surprise!  Tomorrow’s post has arrived early.  This is time-sensitive information so I wanted to get it out as quickly as possible.  Consider it an “early edition”.

For those of you who don’t yet know about Gilt Groupe, let me enlighten you.  They sell designer overruns at a fraction of the original price (up to 70% off).  Each day (at noon), they feature specific designers, whose drastically marked down wares will be available for 38 hours.  

Quantities are limited and styles sometimes go fast so if you want to be sure to get a good selection when your favorite designer pops up, it’s a good idea to set a reminder on your iCal.  (You can see in advance when sales are coming up.)  

Gilt Groupe is open only to members and membership is by invitation only but don’t let that discourage you.  If anyone wants an invitation, just drop me a note on The Raleigh Fashionista Facebook page or leave a comment here and you’ll be good to go!

So, now that you know all about Gilt Groupe, here’s the reason for the tutorial…  They are currently running a pretty amazing sale on beautiful Lauren Merkin clutches.  Gorgeous bags in lots of colors and silhouettes are available as I write this.  (Some have already sold out though.)  And I’m sure I don’t have to tell anyone that clutches are the accessory of the moment.  Honestly, they are definitely a trend so I wouldn’t recommend spending a lot on one because who knows how long the trend will stick around.  (I got a relatively inexpensive one  in a great raspberry color at Gigi’s Boutique here in Raleigh but that’s a story for another day…)  But this is a great way to get a quality designer bag on the serious cheap.

    Hi Cristie,

    Too late for the Lauren Merkin sale but never too late to join Gilt Groupe! I’m going to email you an invite – let me know if you don’t receive it for any reason…
