Gilt City will be hosting it's first Seattle warehouse shopping sale on Friday, July 26th at 415 Westlake in South Lake Union. This not-to-be missed event will feature deep discounts on Gilt's top designer brands for men, women and kids. Some items will be marked down as much as 90% off retail! According to Vogue, Gilt City shopping events channel the "online shopping phenomenon" and bring it offline where shoppers can peruse a curated mix of Gilt City brands right in their own communities. The merchandise mix will include apparel, accessories, shoes, jewelry, home furnishings including bedding, kitchen and bath accessories, home decor and much more from brands like Helmut Lang and Brian Atwood. In addition to an awesome assortment of merchandise guests will enjoy music by a live DJ, refreshments by Coco Cafe and AQUAhydrate, an on-site photo booth, and an on-site bar sponsored by La Marca Prosecco. The event runs from 5pm-12:30am and tickets to the Gilt City Warehouse Sale range from $5-10. Early admission access is already sold-out! More info at: http://www.giltcity.com/seattle/gcwarehousesea.
City City Seattle Curator Rebecca Skidmore offers a few helpful hits on how to shop the sale:
#1- Leggings and tank tops- Wear tight fitting clothing like leggings and tank tops so that you can quickly and easily try on clothing at the sale. But don't worry- fitting rooms will also be available.
#2- Easy Shoes- There's going to be some amazing shoes at the warehouse sale. Be sure to wear shoes that you can easily slip on and off like a pair of easy flats or sandals.
#3- Jacket and Purse- All shoppers will need to check their coats and purses at the door. Be prepared and plan accordingly. We suggest wearing something with pockets so that you can easily carry around your credit card, ID and cell phone.
#4- Go easy on your accessories- Big bracelets, dangly earrings, watches and necklaces will only get in the way of trying new stuff on.
#5- Plastic- No cash is accepted. Be prepared and bring your credit or debit card to shop.
