Gilt Warehouse Sale: Save up to 90 percent on fashions, home furnishings
For the style-savvy who love a good sale, this is your moment to shine.
Years ago, e-commerce sensation Gilt opened up the playing field for thrilling finds at deep discounts and sent many a well-heeled woman flying to their computers to snap up luxe Donna Karan or Diane von Furstenberg at up to 70 percent off.
Fashionable men also dived into the site, enjoying Dolce & Gabbana suits at a fraction of the price and Seven for all Mankind jeans for 50 percent off.
Now, e-shoppers will have the chance to feel the sumptuous leather of a pair of Brian Atwood shoes they may have been eyeing months ago.
On Saturday, May 4, the Gilt City New York Warehouse Sale will offer designer duds for up to 90 percent off at the Altman Building at 135 E. 18thSt. in Manhattan.
Not only can shoppers peruse the paradise of luxe-for-less looks but they can guzzle complimentary cocktails and snack on Pretzel Crisps while shopping from Zac Posen, Carolina Herrera and a number of other esteemed designers.
Tickets to the opening day are selling like wildfire. The mid-morning tickets, afternoon and late afternoon tickets to the event have already sold out. You can still score tickets to the evening entrance ($10) at giltcity.com.
Get there sooner rather than later to get your hands on a Brian Atwood snakeskin clutch ($250, reduced from $1,285) or a monochromatic crepe dress by Helmut Lang ($104, reduced from $520). Men can snap up stylish camouflage pants by Dockers for only $15 a pop, reduced from $68.
