Anyone who has ever shopped on luxury discount site Gilt knows the rush of adrenaline that comes with saving hundreds of dollars on the perfect pair of designer boots or a diamond watch you never thought you could afford.
This is the crowd that will also understand why the upcoming Gilt City New York Warehouse Sale is a shopportunity that just can't be missed.
Think shopping that same collection of home accessories and designer fashion for women, men and kids for up to 90 percent off, but without the pressure of a 10-minute countdown and competition from faceless online shoppers while deciding if you should make your flash sale purchase.
Now, imagine having the ability to see the items in person, feel that cashmere sweater between your fingers and get the instant gratification of walking out with your new duds instead of waiting for them to be shipped.
Add complimentary cocktails and snacks while you shop, on-site makeup applications by Benefit Cosmetics, mini-manicures and shoe shines by John Allan's, live music by DJ Alex Chassin and a free garment bag with purchase.
Tickets for Friday night, Dec. 7 and Saturday morning and afternoon, Dec. 8 are already sold out, but you can still score entry to the late afternoon ($10) and early evening ($5) sessions on Dec. 8 at giltcity.com/newyork/warehousesaleny2012.
The sale will take place at the Metropolitan Pavillion at 125 W. 18th St. in Manhattan. While you're there, tweet and Instagram a photo of what you buy with hashtag #RaidtheWarehouse and you could win $100 in Gilt credit. Share your finds with us by using hashtag #lideals or tweeting @NinaShopsNY.
