Coming Soon: Gilt Groupe's Affordable Spin-Off!

Get ready to add another e-newsletter to your inbox (but this is one you'll definitely click on!): The mother of all online flash sales, luxury purveyor Gilt Groupe, is launching a more contemporary, affordable spin-off on August 12 (at noon ET...mark your calendars!) called Gilt Fuse. The site will operate just like the original--hand-selected looks from featured labels are sold 70 percent off during a 36-hour-only sale--but inventory will be deeper, and prices will be lower: everything's only $75 to $100. Debut brands will include emerging lines as well as a roster of chic-but-wearable favorites like Generra, C&C, and Laundry. Sales are invite-only; existing Gilt Groupe members are automatically in, and those who want to join the fashionably forward ranks can email membership@gilt.com. While we're on the topic, we're wondering: what's been your best find on Gilt?
