Save the Date: Back-to-School Week Starts Sunday


The big first day is fast approaching: Time to stow the pool floats, bring out the backpacks, and wake the kids up from their long summer daze.

Luckily, we’ve got them (and, by association, you) covered for that yearly transition to pencils, books, and math quizzes. We did the homework for all you busy moms and dads by rolling out a can’t-miss edit of our biggest (and best) brands all week long.

Kicking off Sunday, August 10 at 9pm ET, shop new sales every day, stocked with essentials for every student from A+ names like Jacadi, Oscar de la Renta, Egg, and EMU Australia.

Can’t wait? Get a sneak peek at what’s on deck in our preview sale tomorrow, available exclusively on our mobile app. And a roster of choice labels isn’t the only thing up for grabs — we’ve got some extra credit in store, too. Or, shall we say, Gilt credits — $1,000 worth,— reserved for whoever wins our Pinterest contest. Click here for details on how to enter and score the ultimate back-to-school wardrobe.

Six Reasons to Bring Home The Birkin


Trends may come and go, but one thing is for certain—an Hermès Birkin handbag never goes out of style. Starting at noon ET today on Gilt, you’ll have access to the ultimate splurge, a rare one-of-kind Béton Alligator version (see above), plus other covetable styles. And just in case you actually needed an excuse to spoil yourself, we came up with six reasons you need one now.

Reason #1: You Have to Earn It
Think you can just strut in and purchase the iconic “It” bag? Think again! There’s literally a waitlist to get on the waitlist. Most store associates won’t even show you a Birkin unless you make a substantial spend on other Hermès items.

Deal of the Month: Melissa & Doug Trunki

Traveling is a nightmare during the holidays, and trying to keep kids entertained just adds to your stress. We’re sick of having airport anxiety, which is why we’re loving the Trunki from Melissa & Doug. This pint-sized suitcase is the ticket to travel bliss, and it’s 65% off for a limited time. Pack your little one’s clothes in it (suitcase organizer included!) and keep them entertained. Kids can play with the three packs of stickers that come with the case, but the best part is that tykes can sit on the suitcase while parents pull them around the waiting area. Safe travels!
