This weekend was the anticipated Gilt Groupe Warehouse Sale at the Altman Building, where shoppers had a chance to rack up on Gilt Groupe's coveted men's and women's fashion, home, footwear and accessory brands. I make sure I never miss the VIP sale, which was on May 18th from 7-9pm. This time the public sale opened up from 10pm-12AM and continued with 2-hour ticketed timeslots on May 19th. There was also a lot more men's merchandise at this sale, as menswear from Park & Bond, Gilt Groupe's brother site, was also included.
Shoes, kids merchandise, home items and furniture was located downstairs. Shoes were organized by size this season, which made it much easier to shop.
Hair styling was provided by Pipino salon. Guests were able to purchase discount packages at the Pipino salon, redeemable for a future visit.
I am very happy with my shopping finds and the complimentary KIND Bars at checkout! All jewelry was $10, so I did score one necklace and 3 pairs of Adrienne Landau ear muffs for $19, originally $70(I'm known to lose my ear muffs so this seemed like the perfect time to stock up!).
I also scored a BCBG lace top for $39, originally $174, a David Lerner dress for $49, originally $220, and a Kimberly Ovitz skirt with back exposed zipper for $59.
If you missed this sale, keep your eyes open for it in the fall, around the first week in October. Make sure you get your tickets as soon as they are available. Tickets to this sale sell out in a heartbeat!
