The merch is what you would expect to see at a warehouse sale, an assortment of pieces from various designers and seasons at deeply discounted prices like 75+% off retail. I’ve been to a couple Gilt Warehouse sales, one in Chicago and one in New York, and had great shopping success both times.
Haul from a Gilt warehouse sale back in October 2011: Alice Ritter dress, Adam dress, Kai Aakmann vest, and Marni heels
Haul from Gilt Warehouse sale in NY last May: Cynthia Vincent top, Super sunglasses & Surface to Air Wedges
Having been to a couple sales, I have a couple tips. The fitting room is communal and sometimes mirrors are limited, so leggings and friends to shop with are recommended.
There’s no guarantee you’ll find something you’ll like, but there’s always music and refreshments to make it a fun experience regardless of whether or not you take home a shopping bag.
