The Soapbox: You Can Buy A Prepackaged Wedding On Gilt Groupe Now — But Should You?

gilt wedding

Gilt City Chicago is currently offering an entire wedding at the Renaissance Blackstone Hotel, for the low, low price of $31,000! All you have to do? Add it to your cart. The voucher gets you a wedding for up to 120 guests, and includes all of the standard wedding elements you could think of: cocktail hour, open bar, three-course dinner (standard protein or vegetarian entrée), a cake, menu cards, and more. Admittedly, there are some cool things, like a “Chicago-style lunch” for the groomsmen (hot dogs?) and an after-party included in the package. But still, am I alone in thinking a flash wedding sale is just weird? Keep reading »

Today, after work, Amelia and I are going to the Gilt City Warehouse Sale, where all the stuff you normally see on Gilt will be available to touch, try on and buy at deeply discounted prices — up to 90 percent off. We here in The Frisky offices love Gilt — so much so that we gabbed all about it on CNN. New York City’s Gilt City Warehouse Sale is this weekend, May 4 and 5th. Plus, there’ll be one happening in Austin, Texas, as part of Austin Fashion Week, on May 9 and 10; one in San Francisco on May 17th; and a final sale in Los Angeles on June 7th. The good (i.e. dangerous) thing about Gilt sales is that they liquor you up with Prosecco, vodka and wine, and feed you snacks while you shop. Not in or near any of the Gilt Warehouse Sale locations? Never fear — the series will start up again in September across the country. [Gilt City]

I love, love, love Gilt Groupe, because I am a lazy person that loves to shop. And there’s nothing more lazy than online shopping. Gilt usually has a good assortment of designers, and semi-reasonable prices. Over the past couple of years, I’ve purchased several things from them, including a 3.1 Phillip Lim blouse, a Tracy Reese cardigan and a pair of great Faryl Robin wedges. If I count it all up, I’ve probably bought around 10 things from them, but of those, three items have fallen apart just weeks after buying them. Keep reading »

Frisky Staffers Shop Gilt Groupe On CNN


This shouldn’t come as a shock, but the majority of us at The Frisky are a little obsessed with online shopping. Personally, I way prefer shopping from the comfort of my desk or couch to fighting the crowds at department stores or New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, which has come to basically be an outdoor mall. In particular, we’ve sung the praises of online sample sale sites like Gilt Groupe because they sell mid-to-high-priced designers’ labels at discount prices that you can’t find in stores. When Gilt Groupe has one of its final sales, work at The Frisky comes to a screeching halt for about 15 minutes, as a bunch of us go apes**t, trying to get the items we want — in the correct sizes! — in our basket as quickly as possible. CNN recently came by The Frisky’s offices to film this “shopping frenzy” in a segment that aired on “American Morning.” Check it out above! [CNN] Keep reading »

Target Is Partnering With Gilt Groupe — Sales Start Tomorrow!

You know how Target tries to make its designer collaborations seem exclusive, but oftentimes only one or two pieces from a given collection are drool-worthy? Well, the super retailer is trying even harder to sell you on the idea that these collaborations offer “luxury” items at an affordable price. Target is partnering with Gilt Groupe, an online shopping site that offers discounts on designer brands, to offer the designer collections before the garments hit Target stores. Keep reading »
