The Gilt City warehouse sale returns on Friday, and it's offering up the usual incentives of discounts, free beauty services (from Benefit Cosmetics and John Allan's), snacks, and cocktails. Tickets are currently on sale for specified time slots, though all that's left for purchase is late afternoon entry on Saturday ($10) and early evening ($5).
Merchandise at the sale, which includes women's, men's, and kid's clothing and accessories, will be marked down up to 90% off. (Which is 15% more of a discount than the first Gilt warehouse sale offered.) Sure, paying to get into a sale when there are sixty or so free ones happening may feel a bit silly. But in all seriousness, $5 isn't a bad price for a free cocktail.
