Gilt.com is opening their first-ever designer outlet! It's going to house thousands of items from brands like Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Badgley Mischka, and Missoni! Items are going to be 90% off! And it's all going down in...Louisville, Kentucky. Sigh.
If you're lucky enough to be in the Louisville area this July (Racked editors will be stuck in our offices in New York), here's what you need to know about the sale. It opens Friday, June 28th at the Shelbyville Road Plaza (which is near Gilt's largest distribution center, in nearby Shepherdsville—hence the unusual location) and will be live for one full month. And if you do go, let us know how it is.
