Last year, Gilt Groupe hosted a warehouse sale that also included blowouts, brow shapings, and cocktails. This year, they've decided to do it again. Expect the same party favors, like 80% off exclusive Gilt merchandise, makeup by Benefit, hair-styling by Pipino salon, and shoes shines and male manicures by Spiff. As a bonus, this year's sale will include menswear from their handsome-brother site, Park & Bond.
Tickets are currently on sale on the Gilt City website—yes, you do have to pay to enter, and you do have to select a time-slot to shop. The sale kicks off on Friday, May 18, but the late-night 10pm to 12am time slot is already sold out, as is Saturday morning's early entrance. For $15, though, you can get in there mid-morning on Saturday, and for $10, you can take the afternoon shift. If you're not opposed to paying an entrance fee (Brokelyn compares doing to so getting a Costco membership card), you might want to hurry up: The tickets are only on sale for two more days.
