If you live in Chicago and enjoy a good sale (who doesn’t?) then you should probably take note of this: Gilt City is bringing its infamous warehouse sale to town once again!
I’ve been to this sale a few times and I can assure you – it’s totally worth the trip. I’ve found everything from a Vince sweater for just $40, to a completely sequined French Connection dress for $75, to the cutest pair of summer sandals for just $25. The prices are incredible and the sale offers items from high-end brands like Helmut Lang, Zac Posen, Missoni and more.
If I’ve learned one thing about this sale, though, it’s this: Get there early. There are several sessions and it’s really crucial that you snag tickets to one of the earlier ones if you really want the best selection of items and sizes. In fact, I think the reason I’ve always found such great items is because I’ve always gone to the media preview (#JournalistPerks), the warehouse house sale that is held on the Friday night before the festivities open to the public….
Until this year. The Gilt team is offering up a limited number of tickets that Gilt members can purchase for $25 (totally worth it since you’ll probably save way, way more than that on your shopping.) The preview takes place on October 17 from 7-9 pm, and while going to a warehouse sale sounds like a weird way to spend a Friday night, this is actually sort of perfect. They serve free snacks and cocktails at the sale so it definitely takes on a party feel. And really, is there a better way to start a weekend than by buying a few new pieces to wear for whatever you have planned?
Of course, if you’re busy on Friday night you can always go to one of the other times. To purchase tickets and learn more info, head here. Happy shopping!
