Gilt's massive designer clearance sale is set to kick off today—with prices up to 80% off retail. The folks over at Lucky got a sneak peekaroo at the merch and they say there's some Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Matthew Williamson, and Jil Sander definitely on offer (right). Also, the kids at Lucky report that "In other Gilt news, the site is launching a program called Shop Guilt Free with amazing deals every Friday in August. This Friday receive $25 when you spend $125." So, if you haven't already done so, best bet is to register your details with Gilt now. [Lucky]
