Gilt Groupe Launches Gilt Fuse for Women: Who Will Shop There?

Meilily Hot Happenings & Launch News! Gilt Fuse

Screenshot Gilt Fuse Homepage

Gilt Groupe describes their newly launched Gilt Fuse venture as “a great new way to mix and match today’s most-wanted labels with tomorrow’s hottest emerging brands at prices that are impossible to resist.”

The new Gilt Fuse online shop appears to be a women-only more edited version of the original members-only Gilt that also adds in some emerging new designers at a lower price point.

As a concept, it’s great the Gilt Groupe can target that lower price point, but in execution the jury is still out on how clear the Gilt Fuse concept comes through. As of this moment, I am left wondering if Gilt Fuse is going to target a much younger female audience, or › Continue reading

Athleta Warehouse Sale: Up to 80% Off!

Monday, July 20th, 2009 | Hot Happenings, Sales, Stores | Comments Off on Athleta Warehouse Sale: Up to 80% Off!

Meilily Sale Alert! Athleta Warehouse Sale!

Athleta 09 Warehouse Sale Flyer

Athleta 09 Warehouse Sale Flyer

When I first saw an Athleta catalog, I was instantly struck by how unique, well-designed, and reasonably-priced the clothes were, not to mention the fact that everything looked so wearable. Athleta has a fantastic selection of attractive performance apparel designed specifically for active stylish women, and their catalog features models and athletes who are both cute and fit! (Some of the Athleta models even have six-pack abs!)

Anyway, just wanted to make sure you know that Athleta (now part of the GAP family of stores) is having a big Warehouse Sale August 7-9 in Petaluma, CA, with prices starting at only $5. [Petaluma is just north of San Francisco.] Athleta has rarely had a sale or discount coupons in the past, so you don’t want to miss this event.  Check out the Athleta Warehouse Sale flyer above for full details…

Also, check out Athleta’s behind-the-scenes photos from their Summer photo shoot just for fun!

Happy Shopping! from Meilily

Wishlist: Lancome Limited Edition “Declaring Indigo” Blue Brush Set

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009 | Product Launches, Tools and Brushes, Wishlist | 5 Comments

Screenshot: Nordstrom Lancome Limited Edition Declaring Indigo Brush Set

Can one have a crush on brushes? I don’t normally get excited about makeup brushes, other than synthetic kabuki’s, but Lancome’s new limited edition blue-black makeup brushes are immensely attractive, and this brush set is one of only a few new products that I predict will strike ahhhh in the hearts of consumers everywhere.

The limited edition “Declaring Indigo” set of Lancome’s new blue-black brushes will be available to ship from Nordstrom.com starting July 17, 2009 (pre-order now). This smolderingly beautiful new Lancome brush set is a $124 value, and comes with four blue and black bristle brushes and a pretty blue-black brush clutch for only $52.

The Nordstrom-exclusive Lancome brush set includes the following 4 brushes:
– Mineral Powder Foundation Brush
– Foundation Brush #2 (liquid foundation brush)
– Blender Brush #4 (face and eye blender)
– Dual-Ended Brush #18 (liner and shadow)

*To view a larger-size image of the brush set with bag, click here.
(Note: According to Lucky Magazine, the price of this brush set will go up a lot after August 2!)

[Update: I checked out these brushes in person, and most of them are synthetic, according to the salesperson.  I think only the blender is not synthetic.  Also, the bag is really cute!]
