So I belong to all those fabulous sites that offer the best designer deals in town (without having to hope you can make it to a sample sale- unfortunatly, San Francisco way lacks in that department…I always get so jealous of all the ones I see happening in NYC!) Anyways, I digress.
But what I did want to share is how thrilled I was when I got my new Real Simple in the mail this past weekend and it listed out all the sites (HauteLook, Rue La La, Ideeli, etc.) and for several it included ways to join without an invitation from a current member (this is pretty standard for sites like this) and even some shopping credits! The best one in my mind? My invite to Gilt Groupe.
Gilt Groupe provides access, by invitation only, to Men’s, Women’s and Children’s coveted fashion and luxury brands at prices up to 70% off retail. Each sale lasts 36 hours and features hand selected styles from a single designer like Marc Jacobs, Alice + Olivia and Cynthia Steffe. And unlike some other similar sites, Gilt Groupe’s prices are TOTAL steals.
So now I’m happy to share what Real Simple did! Go to www.gilt.com/rs and not only will you be able to score a membership, but also a $25 credit towards your next purchase! And don’t forget to tell all your friends since, once they sign up and purchase, you can gain even more $25 credits. Now that’s just as beautiful as the designer digs if you ask me!
And also pick up April’s issue of Real Simple– it’s on newstands now.
