You probably know the flash sale site Gilt City. They're having a warehouse sale in San Francisco (1270 Sutter Street) on Friday-Saturday, May 30-31 (well, Friday is sold out), featuring designer brands, including men's (John Varvatos, Paul Smith, and GANT) and women's fashions (Helmut Lang, Missoni, Vera Wang, Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera, Prada), home accessories, kids goods and more. Prices are up to 90% off retail.
Sadly, you have to pay to enter! Cost is $10, but you do get some drinks (cocktails, wine and chilled espresso drinks) and snacks (by KIND bars) with that, plus DJ music to get you in the mood. And some mini beauty treatments if you want. Also sadly (or not) - you can't bring the kids. But you'll only get entrance for two hours, so babysitting (or spouse sitting) shouldn't set you back much. And don't forget your credit card. Your cash is no good with them.
Saturday it's from 9-5
Get tickets ahead of time, and choose mid-morning, afternoon or late afternoon shopping. They replenish the racks in between sessions, so don't worry about getting a late one. Let me know what you buy!
