Sustainable Style: TOMS’ Founder Blake Mycoskie Talks One for One.®

“We’ve helped over 250,000 people get their sight back, and that’s growing every day,” says TOMS’ founder Blake Mycoskie, who expanded the brand’s successful One for One.® model, originally created with their signature slip-on shoes, a few years ago to include eyewear. Which means that with every pair of sunglasses — debuting on Gilt today — sold, TOMS helps restore sight to a person in need, through sight-saving surgery, prescription glasses, or medical treatment.

Ready to do your part? Shop the TOMS Eyewear collection, starting tonight at 9pm ET.

#GiltRush: Get the Scoop on Our New Mobile-Only Hidden Steals (+ Our NYC Scavenger Hunt)

yan4hAp5CtEHiug2hessKntjKzADVnV28TIr-_9RRrI

Every day at noon, the virtual race begins on Gilt, and this weekend, we brought the race to the streets of NYC to celebrate the launch of Gilt Rush, our new mobile-exclusive series. Saturday, we hid a vintage Chanel handbag in Nolita and a vintage Rolex watch in Dumbo, and released cryptic clues to their whereabouts via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Two lucky winners (congrats Kaleigh and J. Andrew!) dashed ahead of the competition to claim their prizes — and earn serious bragging rights among their friends.

And don’t fret if you weren’t in town this weekend to play along — you can still get in on the action every Saturday on our mobile app, where we’ll be hiding highly covetable items throughout our mobile sales. See the official rundown here and be sure to follow @Gilt for insider hints. Happy hunting!
