GILT WAREHOUSE SALE ..a sale you won't want to miss!

The perfect way to get your holiday shopping done all in one shot (and maybe pick up a little something for yourself while you're at it)! The infamous Gilt Warehouse Sale is making its way to Los Angeles next week, December 5 to 6. Shop with friends and sip on complimentary cocktails during this two-day shopping party, where guests will find designer clothing and accessories from Gilt’s top brands for women, men and kids, plus home décor and more, all at up to 90 percent off retail!

Shop hundreds of the most coveted brands from both up-and-coming designers and the most venerable fashion houses. Women can score designer finds from brands like Zac Posen, Helmut Lang, Missoni, Vera Wang, Badgley Mischka, Carolina Herrera and more. While men can browse selections from John Varvatos, Paul Smith and GANT to name a few. Racks are constantly replenished, so you're sure to score some fashionable finds.

Below are some tips to help you navigate and maximize your time at the sale, from Gilt City Los Angeles curator Dana Wichard.

1) Get there early! The earlier the better when it comes to time slots, as the best picks (obviously) go quickly

2) Get directly to where your priority lays. If it's women's shoes...head directly to that section of the sale. If it's men's suits, go there first. You may end up holding more in your arms while you shop the rest of the sale, but at least you’ll score the deal you came for and not get distracted by the other temptations!

3) Bring a friend and split up! Having an extra set of eyes to scour the floor will make the most of your time at the sale.

4) Don't forget to take a breather. Sometimes all of this deal searching can be exhausting. Take a moment to have a cocktail or glass of wine before you get back up and get back to the racks. Our LA Warehouse Sale will also have dry hair and makeup styling from GLAMSQAUD. Freshen up while shopping amazing deals!

5) Have fun! The less pressure you put on yourself the more apt you are to find the steal of a lifetime. Valentino pumps anyone? Sometimes the best items pop out at you when you least expect it. Seize the moment!
